Wonderful holiday house in Andalucia on a private estate, La Almuna. 6km south of Gaucin. 1 hour from Gibraltar airport, 90 mins from Malaga, 45 mins from Ronda, 2 hours from Seville. lovely swimming pool, tennis court and riding on the estate. Nearby, easy access to golf and dramatic walks and sightseeing in local hilltop white villages plus the historic cities of Ronda and Seville. The atmosphere at the house is peaceful and secluded with extensive gardens, wonderful views of Africa and shady terraces while just 6km away is the vibrant town of Gaucin, packed with shops, tapas bars and restaurants and numerous nightclubs. Good beaches, such as the popular Tarifa, are easily accessible from 40 mins drive away. It's the perfect place for all generations to enjoy the holiday of their choice.
Me and three of my siblings own El Otero, and it is fair to say that it is our favourite place in the world! It is very tranquil and beautiful and we all go as much as we can.
What an elegant, beautiful, relaxing hideaway. We (3 adults, 4 children 4-11) spent a wonderful October week at El Otero: lazing by the pool; enjoying a glass of wine as we watched night fall over the mediterranean and out to Africa; or feeling the morning sunlight under bougainvillea at breakfast; reading, playing games and cooking/dining in the very homely, cool and elegantly decorated main rooms and bedrooms. We swapped this calm and comfort for tennis on the estate; trips to white washed villages, to the depths of a cave with 25,000 year-old paintings; and to dangle from a wire as we rock-climbed around Gaucin's via ferrata route. And, on the way back home, we had a day of jaw-dropping Moorish architecture of Al Hambra palaces in Granada. So unreservedly recommended, with something for everyone.
