About Sally

My name is Sally and I have been working for over 20 years in the tourism industry visiting many countries around the world. Having studied at Uni in the UK, I now run a small tourism company (Ride Andes), offering horse riding tours, in South America. Since 2007, involved in horse riding trips in and around GAUCIN. The village impressed me so much that I bought a small house, finished renovating it and rent the house out as I am not unable live here ...yet.

Sally purchased this house in 2009

Why Sally chose Ronda area

A village house at the 'right' end of Gaucin for the views and easy access in busy periods.

Beautifully kept, very thoughtfully converted & laid out for a wonderful, easy holiday. Just been repainted.

Uninterrupted views out over the village to the Castle, hills, Gibraltar...

easy walk to bars, Tapas, restaurant & shop and also swimming pool.

What makes this house unique

The character of the house combined with the great location and stunning views.
