Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday villa in Gaucin - Finca Gaucin
Quietly nestled in the Andalusian hills near the village of Gaucin, this beautiful contemporary villa offers fabulous views across the surrounding countryside. Perched spectacularly 600 metres above sea level, the historic village of Gaucin is a tangle of medieval streets, white-washed houses and flower-filled patios. Set against the backdrop of the Serranía de Ronda the views from the village, it provides visitors with everything they may need, from shops and services to good restaurants and classic tabernas. The beautiful Castillo del Aguila (Eagle’s Castle) dates back to Roman times, and is a venue for occasional flamenco and classical music concerts, as is the nearby convent. The surrounding area is a paradise for nature lovers, with an abundance of good trails suitable for both walking and cycling. The property is situated just an hour’s drive from the coast, but it should be noted that a 4x4 vehicle would be suitable (although not essential) for tackling the mountain roads. The villa itself is modern, spacious and stylish, and provides guests with all modern comforts and luxuries in a traditional Andalusian setting. The focal point of the house is the beautiful open-plan living and dining room – an impressive space that cleverly brings the outdoors inside via enormous floor-to-ceiling glass windows that make the separation between the interior and exterior of the property minimal. The brand new and fully-equipped kitchen is exceptionally large, with a breakfast bar in the middle and windows at both ends of the space. Each of the five bedrooms is in keeping with the rest of the house. Decorated in a cool, clean palette, and with an emphasis on space and light, they are stylish yet comfortable, many of them giving those great views out to the hills. The master bedroom is particularly impressive, with its own private terrace, dressing room, and beautiful double bathroom with window-side bathtub. There is a separate sitting room on the first floor, perfect as a children’s play room or for watching movies. The basement is home to the heated indoor swimming pool and games room, and gives access to the outdoor terrace and garden. With over 7000 square metres of private space, the exterior of the property is just as impressive as the interior. With sun-loungers, a dining table and a chill-out area, the main terrace is the ideal place to spend lazy days, whilst another smaller terrace on the first floor provides a more intimate setting. Surrounded by wild orchids, olive groves and almond blossoms and with a spectacular location on the edge of one of Malaga’s prettiest villages, this gorgeous villa is a great option for those looking for a bit of luxury in the Andalusian hills.
