About Diana Paget

born and brought up in U.K. I moved to Spain in 1980 and have been hereon the farm since 1985. Inow live in my granny flat above the stables from where i can meet and great my clients and fill them in on all the local information ,sorting out any problems that might arise.

Diana Paget purchased this house in 1985

Why Diana Paget chose Gaucín

This farm is the most beautiful well situated place to live for anyone who loves a peaceful life with wonderful climate and views to die for. It is situated about 6 kms from 2 local villages, one ancient with much history attached, and the other in contrast is a modern village created within the last 150 years to bring new blood to the area which had been under arabic rule for hundreds of years. It is also within easy reach of many of Andalucia´s places of special interest such as Ronda,

Granada,Jerez , Sevilla, the Atlantic coast not to mention

the bright nightlife of Marbella and Puerto Banus and Sotogrande, whilst being tucked away in the Ronda mountains with their real fresh air and peaceful tranquility.

What makes this house unique

Here we have superb walking, climbing, riding , in spring the most amazing wild flowers, we are right on the migration route for birds coming north from Africa (and of course back again)! we also have a tennis court (shared) and ping pong

Spacious, relaxing with terrific views!

  • 4 of 5

We spent just over a week at this lovely house as a last minute booking! We were not disappointed.....our welcome from Diana was warm and generous as she greeted us with homemade Gazpacho and vegetables from the local farm.

The house was spacious and peaceful with tremendous views over the surrounding countryside. We all absolutely loved the pool with a view, a wonderful place to cool down and relax.

Thank you Diana for making our stay so special.

Fantastic & Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed with Diana at La Almuna for a week. The house, grounds, pool, gardens and view are beautiful and well kept. Diana's hospitality is unrivalled within half an hour somehow you have a large G&T in your hand and are taking in the view from the terrace while a delicious dinner is being prepared for you. The house is utterly charming in a rustic farmhouse style with every room full of character. We had a toddler with us and the pool and surrounding area are very safe for children. We will definitely be back next year - loved every second of this place!
