Nestled in the mountains near the pueblo blanco of Gaucin and only 1.5 hours from Malaga airport, Finca Avedin is an unbeatable destination for relaxing with family and friends. A short walk from the pretty village of Gaucin, Finca Avedin is set within its own 15 acre estate of cork forest, woodland and olive and almond groves. It's a peaceful setting that gives you a feeling of calm as soon as you arrive. On the slopes of the Serrania de Ronda in the Andalucian mountains, it offers fantastic opportunities for walking, birdwatching and other outdoor pursuits and, if you're an art lover, you're only moments from the renowned art studios of Gaucín.

A short walk from the pretty village of Gaucin, Finca Avedin is set within its own 15 acre estate of cork forest, woodland and olive and almond groves. It's a peaceful setting that gives you a feeling of calm as soon as you arrive. On the slopes of the Serrania de Ronda in the Andalucian mountains, it offers fantastic opportunities for walking, birdwatching and other outdoor pursuits and, if you're an art lover, you're only moments from the renowned art studios of Gaucín. Whether you're relaxing by the pool, discovering secret corners of the landscaped gardens or admiring the fabulous views, you'll truly feel like you've found your own Spanish oasis. A traditional farmhouse, Finca Avedin has been lovingly restored to create a wonderful country home. Wrapped around a large central courtyard, you'll find Moorish-influenced rooms with whitewashed walls, exquisite furnishings and carefully-chosen antiques as well as all the modern comforts you'd expect. The villa is spacious yet cosy, luxurious yet comfortable and has been described as having an amazing energy. With seven en-suite bedrooms and extensive indoor and outdoor living space, Finca Avedin offers you a gorgeous home away from home. Our seven ensuite bedrooms are spacious and beautifully furnished with bedlinen, towels, hairdryers and toiletries provided. The beds in bedrooms 2, 3, 6 and 7 can be separated to provide two single beds or joined together to create Superking beds. Our small casita with its own kitchenette and ensuite shower room provides two additional single beds and our wonderful Belle Tent which is available from May to October and also has two single beds and its own ensuite shower room. The casita and tent are available on request at an additional cost. Set against the backdrop of the majestic mountains and with the scent of orange and lemon in the air, there's no better place to recharge your batteries. Families and groups of friends can enjoy the spectacular infinity pool, immaculate gardens and nature on your doorstep. You won't want to leave....

About the neighbourhood
The village is situated against the looming dark backdrop of the Serranía de Ronda where, depending on the time of year, you can enjoy an Impressionist paint palette of colour: brilliant brush strokes of red poppies, yellow mimosa, wild orchids, tempered by the cool green of olive groves and occasional splash of pale pink almond blossom.Gaucin has a population of only 2000 and is perched 626 metres above sea level. Like so much of Andalucia, it has had a fascinating, if tumultuous history. Derived from the Arab word, 'guazan' (strong rock), the village is perched on the crest of the Sierra del Hacho, and due to its key strategic position was once a major Roman settlement. Its magnificent castle, Castillo del Aguila (Eagle's Castle) dates from this era and was later expanded by the Arabs in...
Getting around
Unlike many holiday homes in the area, you can walk to Gaucín from Finca Avedin – it takes around 15 minutes (uphill on the way there, downhill on the way back!) and it’s definitely worth a visit.
