El Gastor, Centro map
Beautiful little house in the center of town in El Gastor, one of the´Pueblos Blancos´ in the province of Cádiz, is this small house of three floors in the oldest part of the town. You access the house on the ground floor by a hall that leads to a small living room (approximately m2) from which it goes straight to the kitchen (approximately m2). The kitchen has a window in a small and charming alley and a descent (very steep) to the basement. From the living room, a staircase leads to an open lobby (approximately m2) on the first floor with a small balcony on the street. The bathroom (approximately m2) is on the kitchen and has a small balcony in the alley. From the opposite side of the hall you can access the bedroom (approximately m2), the side of the street has a balcony and a small window next to the alley. On the basement floor with approximately m2 you have an independent entrance from the alley at ground level or by a steep staircase from the kitchen (trap door on the kitchen floor). The Gastor is part of the famous route of the white villages of the province of Cádiz, a quiet town with just under 2000 inhabitants at about 600 meters above sea level, whitewashed houses in winding alleyways with panoramic views. In this magnificent landscape, almost exactly in the middle between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic, there is a paradise for nature lovers. Hiking trails for beginners or advanced, mountain biking in rugged terrain, a bike ride along the wonderful Via Verde, which leads along an old railway track in disuse through tunnels and viaducts, paragliding in Algodonales, kayaking in the reservoir or climbing in the Sierra de Grazalema - a few kilometers you will find a wide variety of offers. The dreamed city: that´s what Rainer Maria Rilke called Ronda, the next big city, which is 25 minutes away by car. Here, Hemingway and Orson Welles left their mark, attracted by the shows in the famous bullring, one of the oldest in Spain. Jerez de la Frontera, the birthplace of Sherry, is about an hour´s drive east, as is Seville, with its impressive old town and its airport. If you add fifteen minutes more, you are in the Atlantic and its wild beaches or in the oldest city in Europe, Cádiz. If you move from Ronda in the other direction, towards the south, you will reach the Mediterranean and Marbella after an hour. The trip to Malaga (airport) takes approximately 1:45 hours.
