About Michael and Susan Jepson
We looked long and hard for a suitable property in Andalucía but eventually chose Gaucin because of the village and its unique views to the coast. After having viewed many properties there, we knew that Casa Mirador ,as we call it, was the right one as soon as we walked in and looked out from every room and from the covered terrace in particular The many responses from our guests, who often return for another stay, also bear out that they felt the same. We live in England but love Spain. We spend our main holiday each year there, often then also spending a few more days exploring and discovering some other part of Spain.
Why Michael and Susan Jepson chose Gaucin
We wanted to get away from the coast and chose Gaucin, one of the Adalucian white villages, because of its unique position, perched on the hillside approx 2500 feet above sea level looking out over the Genal Valley to Gibraltar and the Mediterranean. We have furnished it as our holiday home but enjoy sharing it with our guests,who send us very appreciative comments and many rebook and look forward to their next visit.
The village is a delight with its mix of shops and Spanish and ex pat owned bars and restaurants and is still totally Spanish, but has a good number of residents, from UK and other parts of Europe, many of whom have become friends
What makes this house unique
We had been looking for the right property in Gaucin for a very long time before we saw Casa Mirador. As soon as we walked into the living area and saw the views across to Crestelina mountain and the sea, we knew straight away that it was for us and we still get the same thrill each time we visit, as do our guests, who also like the fact that we have furnished the property as our holiday home and welcome them as guests
