FINCA ( COUNTRY HOUSE ) WITH STUNNING VIEWS NEAR THE COAST - SLEEPS 6

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Gaucin - Finca El Capitan Alta

Self-contained, three bedrooms, two bathrooms grounds and large pool.

There are two self contained houses but looks like one house. The house on the right of the photo is the holiday rental and has two double and one twin bedded bedrooms, two bath/shower rooms, kitchen , sitting room and dining room. It has a large terrace, sole use of the 40 foot swimming pool and adjacent pergola with a bar with a fridge and dining area. Situated between Gaucin (8 mins) and the coast it is convenient for Malaga and Gibraltar airports, Puert Banus (35 mins), Ronda (50 mins) Sotogrande, with it's large yachts and polo (25 mins) and enjoys privacy and glorious views. The house is not part of a development so there are no immediate neighbours to annoy you.The house on the left is occupied by the owners and never let. The entrance to each house is on the opposite side so the owners are very much out of sight/sound ! There are two of the friendliest dogs in the world to meet you and a cat whom you may never see ! The dogs are excellent and reliable with children. WiFi .

Golf: There are approx 12 courses within 30 minutes drive including Valderama and San Roque at the top end, to the more affordable.If you require further details pre booking, please advise. This year's Volvo Matchplay Tournament is being held at Finca Cortesin which is 15 minutes drive from the house !

Guestbook comments from the owner
Boris , a guest from Holland,after sitting outside the previous night , gave this unsolicited appreciation "... this place is so beautiful, it doesn´t matter if tomorrow never comes !" Praise for a location doesn´t get better than that !!

Gorgeous finca in the mountains approximately 8 k's from Gaucin.

Barry and Jo live in an adjoining property. They were there if we needed anything otherwise we were hardly aware of them.

The finca is large, spaceous and traditionally designed. It is extremely comfortable and beautifully furnished; the kitchen is better equipped than mine in London! We discovered basic provision, tea, sugar were provided and Barry had offered to do a basic shop for us if we had needed that.

Two of the bedrooms, the lounge and the kitchen open out on to the terraces. These lead down to the pagoda and extensive and colourful gardens. We had exclusive use of the pool and particulary enjoyed BBQ'ing by it at night and sitting gazing at the stars and the glittering lights of Gaucin, perched on the top of a mountain in the distance.

We were there late summer and some of the restaurants in Gaucin had closed for the season. The road up to Gaucin is steep and winding so we were content to have lunch out rather than dinner where a temptation to drink is greater.

We were looking forward to walking in the mountains but we were not able to find information on the offical walikng tracks. I still enjoyed walking on the roads. There isn't a great deal of traffic but my partner wasn't keen on doing that. I suggested to Jo that they obtain information about the walking tracks to add to the wealth of other information they have in the finca.

We had been sailing before we went to the finca so going to the beach wasn't a priority for us. But the sea is only about a 40 minute drive away so an easy option for those who want a day out by the sea side.

We found our time there very relaxing and far from the stresses of life back home.

Thank you Jo and Barry.

Car: necessary

The villa is set in grounds of approx 6 acres .It is completely private and is not overlooked by other properties.It is approached by a private drive via electric gates.( not at the end of several klms of dusty, unmade-up track demanding an expensive 4 x4 rentalcar, like so many other country properties ) . WiFi is a fixture both inside and also outside by the pool! Mobile telephone reception is excellent.

Gaucin is an. unspoilt ' White Village ' with bars restaurants and shopping facilities , It perches on top of the hills

at 650 metres above sea level with amazing views of The Rock of Gibraltar, the coast and North Africa. Tarifa , The Costa La Luz and the amazing Atlantic beaches are only 60 mins drive away. ( The Med is only 20mins away ) This is the kite surfing centre of Europe - view 100s of.colourful kites at any one time, and the amazing antics of the surfers . Dolphin and whale watch off Gibraltar (40 mins ).If you want serious night life, Puerto Banus is 45 mins away.There is so much to entertain the children at the house; Ping Pong, badminton, dart board,giant pick a stick, scooters amongst other things and this is in addition to the large pool with diving board and slide !
