In August the travel writer Tim Jepson of the Telegraph Travel overcame his negativity about the south of Spain and experienced the beautiful white village of Gaucin, just inland of the Costa del Sol. He was blown away by this beautiful village and spent a long weekend relaxing in the sleepy, romantic atmosphere and exploring the stunning surrounding countryside.
“Even from afar, the location is astounding, white houses ranged along a lofty ridge, framed by craggy peaks, vultures wheeling overhead and surrounded by miles of sun-drilled hills dotted with carob, cork oak and shimmering fields of wheat.” To read the full article click here
It’s great to see some positive press on this varied area and amazing to think that these stunning villages are within easy reach of the modern and cosmopolitan Costa del Sol. You can easily rent self-catering accommodation on the Costa del Sol, hire a car and take day trips out to the white villages, national parks and nearby towns if a simple beach holiday isn’t for you.
Another stunning white village to visit is Casares, which has the reputation for being the most picturesque of all!
In Casares the village is huddled around an ancient Muslim fort which offers stunning views and a lovely old-fashioned atmosphere.
We have a fantastic range of Casares holiday rentals for you to enjoy whist you explore the village, the stunning surrounding countryside and perhaps the nearby golf courses.
