I currently live in between the coast and Gaucin, depending of if the house is booked or not.
Miren Valle purchased this chateau / country house in 2004
Why Miren Valle chose Gaucin
My husband's dream was to have a house in the Country, and he found his dream in Gaucin.
We bought the plot and build what is today La Posada Romana.
We are very proud of the house and the gardens that we have surounding us.
I fell in love of the area when we came to buy the plot, because is so green and there is forest everywere, is very peaceful and specially we love the views over the straight of Gibraltar.
What makes this chateau / country house unique
The whole project was drawn in a restaurant napkin and passed on to a wonderful arquitect: Gustavo Kloster, who made our dream reality and managed the building project following to the point our wishes.
