Our home, El Pindolo, is a modern country house but built in the traditional style of a Spanish white house. It is surrounded by corks, carobs, pine, olive and almond trees, with ample private parking space and it's own driveway. We have a private pool with a small bar - perfect for those long hot days in the sun, followed by evening cocktails and dining. The views from the house and swimming area are simply magical and take in the nearby castle, the mountains, the distant sea, Gibraltar, and Africa. It is truly stunning and needs to be seen to appreciate just how beautiful this part of Spain really is.
Whether you are coming to Spain to enjoy the hot summers or the pleasant winters, El Pindolo is a family home and is suited and designed for all conditions. There are log burners and central heating for the winter, or pool for the summer.
The village of Gaucin offers some fantastic bars and restaurants, along with the famous Andalusian character, wit and hospitality. The City of Ronda is about half an hour away should you wish to experience some more culture, restaurants and shopping.
For those of you who enjoy the beach, there are several locations worth visiting on the coast, which is also about 30 to 40 minutes drive away. The beaches are clean and offer clear blue swimming in the Mediterranean, along with many beach side facilities. Tarifa is not too far away either should you be inclined to brave the wild surfing seas!
There are several golf courses nearby - between Gaucin and Malaga, all of which are easy to get to.
Walks can be taken in the picturesque mountains, so whether you are a professional walker or just keen to look at the views and area, there is something to suit all tastes and abilities.
Our home does truly offer the best of all worlds. If you want to relax by the pool and have privacy then El Pindolo offers all you need. If visiting areas of beauty, going to the beach or golfing is on your agenda, then El Pindolo is equally suited to your needs.
There are three double bedrooms - all with ensuite facilities. For dining there are several options. Firstly there is a truly stunning glass room with retractable glass doors. We found ourselves eating in this room most of the time because you can admire the views either in the open air, or for those slightly fresher evenings, with the glass doors closed. Secondly there is a family dining table in the kitchen area which can accommodate 10 people or more. Finally, take your pick of two outside areas to eat - the bar at one end of the pool, or a covered dining area at the other end.
We hope you will love El Pindolo as much as our family and friends have done over the years. Please feel free to ask if you have any questions.
