About Graham Wood

I was born in Fife, Scotland. I am a chartered accountant and work as a company accountant in Dundee. I am in the fortunate position of being able to work remotely some of the time and able to spend this time in the wonderful village of Gaucin.

Graham Wood purchased this house in 2004

Why Graham Wood chose Ronda area

Having holidayed with family in the summer of 2004 we returned in the autumn to look for a possible holiday home. We chose this property because of its location high up in the village with the full Gaucin view. The house was in need of complete rebuild and finally ready in the spring of 2006. We have made the most of the property over the years with family and friends and it has been a home from home.

What makes this house unique

The views from the terrace are incredible and take the breath away everytime.

Lovely townhouse in beautiful White Mountain village
average rating of 4.894737 based on 20 reviews

A beautifully finished property with everything that you would need provided.

  • 5 of 5

Loved this property. Everything was to a high standard. Comfortable bed, cosy lounge, everything you could need in the kitchen, lovely shower with intermittent loss of hot water but no real issue, just the quirk of the system. We had been left some supplies which were very welcome and very thoughtful. The roof terrace is well done and offers both full sun and shade if required. Also spectacular vies down to the sea and Gibralter. We had a problem with the broadband and TV signal for Sky News but Graham was on hand and resolved all the issues. We were in Gaucin for the 3 day festival so a lot happening in an otherwise sleepy town. Lots of good bars and restaurants. You just have to work out which one is open when. Would definitely recommend and would certainly stay there again. The only drawback would be if you had a problem climbing stairs.

Fantastic space in a lovely Village

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this fantastic house in a lovely village. We found the property very easily from the directions given. The village has many pleasant bars and restaurants and a very good Municipal outdoor pool, which we used on a regular basis.

The rooftop terrace is a truly wonderful space giving fantastic views towards the castle and village to your left. Down to Gibraltar and Morroco to the centre and the El hacho to the right.

We spent a lot time here just admiring the views and soaking up the sun and also the shade that the canopy offered.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

One of the loveliest places I have stayed in Gaucin. Awesome terrace and views, super clean and equipped house that is loved and cared for. Sometimes a holiday rental can feel souless but not this one... this is a beautiful home. Very helpful owner and even a lovely welcome package of all the essentials including a nice Spanish wine!

Great place in great town.

We look forward to coming back.

Everything was as expected: clean, comfortable and enjoyable.

We were there on the shoulder season and saw sun, rain and wind but, as I said, we look forward to our return!

Excellent - well appointed - well stocked

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here the week before Christmas and had a fantastic time. We love top walk and climb and found Gaucin to be really well situated for these activities. Also visited Gibraltar and Ronda - both being really easy to get to from the village. The village, even in December, has everything you need (chemist, supermarket, butchers (a fab one!), eating places) and was full of character and lovely people.

The house is roomy and really well stocked. We had everything we needed. When we arrived all was clean and ready. We have a child and the fact that the two double rooms are next to each other really helped him feel close at night. The terrace was a lovely aspect (south facing with fabulous views). The owner was really helpful and we would recommend to anyone.

A wonderful spacious home, beautifully situated in the town, with stunning views to Gibraltar and Morroco from the fabulous rooftop terrace. No hesitation at all in recommending this property to anyone wanting a comfortable and elegant base to enjoy and explore the area. Everything as advertised and expectations exceeded. Couldn't ask for more.
