My husband and I will be in Andalusia this fall. We had initially planned to stay in Malaga a few days, then drive to Gaucin and then on to Ronda. I am not a fan of hairpin turns and steep drop-offs and am having some doubts after reading some of the 2006 forum entries on the condition of the road. One comment was that the Gaucin-Ronda road is "the most challenging in Spain." My question: how terrifying is it? If we had to take the road in the rain, is there fog - and is it a dangerous route for first time drivers? I also read an entry detailing an easier route circling around to Ronda from the north-east If we took that, we would miss Gaucin, which looks charming. Is there any town (unspoiled, not too touristy) along the easier route that would be a good for a night or two's stay? Thanks.
