About Miren Valle

My name is Miren, Im born in Bilbao, I'm a Beautician, and have had a beauty Salon on the coast for many years.

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.

WOW!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in the Posada Romana for 7 nights with a party of 4 adults and 3 kids. I wish we could have stayed longer. First of all, the house is huge. You have plenty of spaces that offer privacy when you're with a group. The beds are king size, and extremely comfortable and most of the bedrooms have a great view and some even have a terrace. The bathrooms are perfect and luxurious (even one bathroom with a jacuzzi). But the best thing is the outside space and the view. Wow! Mountains, forest, the sea and sometimes even morocco. Within 5 to 10 minutes you reach the house from Gaucin. A dirt road, but one we could easily handle with our small rental. Hope to be back soon.

Fantastic house as home base or destination itself

  • 5 out of 5
As a group of 5 widely-traveled couples who get a villa somewhere in Europe every year, we all bring our own benchmarks of a "great house." La Posada Romana hit every one of them. It is a fantastic home to enjoy as its own destination, or as a centrally-located home base for the major destinations of Andalucia.

To start, the owner, Miren, couldn't have been more helpful, particularly with a very thorough pre-trip packet, including helpful directions to the house with pictures of primary route landmarks. Also included are restaurant suggestions with pictures, contact numbers, websites, attractions, history, etc. -- essentially the House Book delivered to you before your arrival. Diego, the gardener, was always available with suggestions or to help with any requests.

The house itself is excellent for large groups. There is plenty of room for everyone to either gather together or find their own private space. While we didn't have any young children with us (ages ranged from mid-20s to early-60s), as parents we could appreciate that the house would be very well suited for all but the youngest (as there are many levels).

The kitchen is large and well stocked with equipment and serving ware. As seems to normally be the case, it proved to be the favored gathering spot and could accommodate the 10 of us easily. We also had everything we needed to make and enjoy large scale dinners.

The pool, sundeck and activities (ping pong, bocci) lent a relaxing resort-like component to the holiday.

You do need a vehicle unless you are particularly geared towards a 30 minute hike into town, up a fairly steep incline. It's a 4 minute drive otherwise. The track to the house is perhaps a bit daunting the first trip, but a non-event thereafter. However, the location couldn't be better -- the views can't be done justice in the pictures.

The house can get warm when closed up, but please note that this is coming from visitors from moderate/cool climates (NYC/SF/Toronto) and used to constant air conditioning. However, there is central A/C with a max low of 23C (74F). We visited in October during a perfectly mild and dry period -- 24/15 (75/58) and were perfectly comfortable when we opened the doors and windows (of which there are many large openings) to allow the breezes to come through, adding to the home's open and bright feeling.

We highly recommend Posada Romana, and thank Miren and Diego for a very memorable holiday!

Really stunning.

  • 5 out of 5
House – stunning. The photos really do not do justice to what is an extraordinary house, beautifully laid out and furnished. It was impeccably clean and had all the mod cons you might need. The owner quick to respond and very helpful with any queries.

Location: A short drive or walk into town, although the walk is an uphill hike. Gaucin has everything you could need, local shops, local produce and friendly to all nationalities. The view across the mostly unshared valley is mesmerizing, and the quiet is what we went for. Perfect in everyway, only wish it had a piano!

Never fails to impress !!

  • 5 out of 5
This was our third stay in as many years at the magical Posada Romana. To cap it all off, the weather was excellent and sunny. Thanks, Mirren, the family enjoyed your lovely Villa once again. The children were especially thrilled this time around because we were all able to enjoy the large garden for all sorts of outdoor activities. Makes a change from playing on Ipads and Playstations all day!!
Thanks Mirren, we'll be back next year for sure.

A sensational property that takes your breath away

  • 5 out of 5
From the first contact with Miren Valle, the owner, to our arrival in Spain she was so friendly, helpful and prompt in replying to my queries. La Posada Romana is simply stunning. The first sight as you enter the driveway will take your breath away. We were escorted to the Villa by Diego the gardener/handyman who was so helpful and kind. The entire property is finished & furnished to the highest of standards. We were a party of 11, ranging from 18yrs to 84, who all enjoyed our stay equally. A special holiday at a special location.
This was our 3rd stay in the Gaucin area, the most stunning of Pueblo Blancos in Andalucía. Despite our dire lack of ability in Spanish, the villagers were all welcoming and helpful.
I would recommend a 4x4 vehicle to negotiate the track from Gaucin to the Villa, whilst the driveway at La Posada Romana is perfect, the track leading to it does get rough in places, but don't let that put you off, it's a minor inconvenience more than adequately compensated when you reach this magical Villa. The location is perfect for sun lovers (huge patio with plenty of loungers), walkers, and birdwatchers alike.
Thank you Miren & Diego, we hope to return soon.
