Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday home in Gaucin - Tamarind

1 Bedroom with twin beds plus double sofa bed in lounge, 1 bathroom

Tamarind is a superior village house with two spacious floors and a roof terrace. Situated in a quiet village street with ample parking, several shops and the open air swimming pool close by. Ground floor consists of entrance hall with toilet & washroom, spacious lounge with double sofa bed, dining area &fully equipped kitchen with breakfast bar. Two south facing balconies provide views across the village. An open staircase leads to the first floor bedroom with ensuite toilet and adjacent shower room. Two balconies provide stunning views over the Campo de Gibraltar to the coast & N.Africa beyond. Acess to the roof terrace is through a small casita reached by an open staircase. The terrace has a sun awning and cold shower and is complete with terrace furniture & loungers.

Local amenities: Gaucin has an open air swimming pool surrounded by gardens usually open from June to September. There are two tennis courts with a poolside restaurant. The village has two banks with cash machines, two small supermarkets and several small shops selling all your everyday requirements. There is a small daily market with a fish stall, churros, butcher and greengrocer. There are several restaurants serving varied cuisine and prices to match. The village has ample bars where you can relax with a Rioja, a beer or sample the delicious tapas that are served almost everywhere. All bars serve coffee and soft drinks. During the summer months there are several fiestas commencing with Santa Semana at Easter and finishing with Santo Nino (the local saint) in late August.

Public Transport: Gaucin railway station is situated in the adjoining village of El Colmenar(13kms) distance. From here there are daily trains from Algeciras to Granada. At Bobadilla there are connections for Seville, Malaga & Cordoba as well as services beyond .e.g Madrid.

At the ports of Algeciras and Tarifa(1 hr) there are fast ferries to N.Africa and a day trip to Tangier is quite achievable. There is also a ferry service to N.Africa from Malaga during the summer months.A visit to Gibraltar by train (via Algeciras) would be possible.

An Autobus service runs through Gaucin on a daily basis from Algeciras to Ronda. .

There is a taxi service in the village situated in the plaza.

Whilst you may see many burros in the village these are not usually for hire as transport!!

Tamarind: Tamarind is a 3 storey house set in a tranquil part of this Spanish working village. All of the neighbours are Spanish and their friendliness and warmth just comes naturally.The whole village has a sense of community that extends to visitors also.

There are several walks that start & finish in the village including a visit to the magnificent El Castillo & its museum (a tribute to Santa Nino). The castle is normally floodlit on week ends which makes it even more splendid.Another favourite jaunt is down the Camino de Gibraltar, an old mule track which ends at the Ermita del Santo Nino. Also close by are several forest walks where you may be lucky enough to see some wild pigs. Whichever ramble you choose you will be impressed by the flora and mountain ranges where you may glimpse the soaring eagles and vultures.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Chris & I have just spent a glorious two weeks in your lovely home Tamarind in Gaucin. I can only commend the beautiful condition of your home - everywhere was immaculate. Rosalind Baxter Uxbridge Middlesex



We both had a thoroughly wonderful time, enjoyed the house and Gaucin so much it was a struggle to leave. Even the neighbours came out to say goodbye. Tony & Chris Leeds



Thank you once again for a super place to escape to! We enjoyed being there just as much, if not more than last year. A true escape. Hopefully we will return soon. Gill Twinning, Grimsby

Still sheer bliss

  • 5 out of 5
Just returned from our second visit to Tamarind and absolutely loved it. The house is so comfortable and well equipped but once again we spent most of our time on the roof terrace with its fantastic views. The village is an absolute delight so peaceful but with a great selection of bars and restaurants and such friendly locals. There are plenty of places to visit should you feel the need we did have a couple of days out we visited Tarifa which we enjoyed and a couple of other white towns but were more than happy to spend most of our time in Gaucin. Once again Barbara thank you for allowing us to stay in your lovely home and we hope to visit again when possible.

A great place to chill

  • 5 out of 5
After the crowds in the galleries, museums and cities in the North, this little white village of Gaucin was a wonderful place to relax. Tamarind is a very special place in Gaucin in which we immediately felt relaxed, comfortable an at home. Stunning views to the Mediterranean from the roof terrace where a relaxing afternoon glass or three became a ritual. Tamarind is spacious, clean and very well equipped. Although small, the village has excellent cafes and bars, an easy stroll from the house. Tamarind is highly recommended. A gem.

We are always pleased when you can take the time to review Tamarind and the village which sometimes helps when other clients have to choose which property to rent. We always strive to keep the house tip top and it is great when we know this has been appreciated.

Perfect

  • 5 out of 5
Absolutely perfect. Tamarind had everything we needed. The roof terrace was ideal for relaxing while taking in the beautiful views. The village has plenty of places to eat and drink and is lovely just to have a walk around and take in the scenery.
Would definitely recommend and hope to return.

Sheer Bliss

  • 5 out of 5
Had the most relaxing week at Tamarind. Fell in love with both Gaucin and this delightfull house.. It had everything we needed but we spent most of our time on the fantastic roof terrace on the comfy sunbeds eating drinking reading and sleeping ,

We had to drag ourselves out a couple of days as the intention had been to visit the pueblos blancos but could have happily spent all the time in Gaucin. The village is great a couple of supermarkets several bars and restaurants and the locals are very friendly.. Tried the village swimming pool which was great its a pity it closes so early in the season it closed on 9th September. There are plenty of places to visit should you feel the need and Ronda is only about 40 mins drive.. Cant wait to go back

Holiday home in the mountains

  • 5 out of 5
"We had a wonderful week staying at Tamarind, the house is generously proportioned, comfortable, very well equipped, well maintained and private and offers far reaching views to the South from all floors. Gaucin and its surroundings are new to us and we weren’t disappointed. The village, local walking, wildlife and links to surrounding areas were great. We felt the route to Gaucin via Casares was the best if heading up from the coast. We hope to return in the future. Carole & Paul, York."

Gaucin, once a smugglers den lies on the route between Gibraltar and Ronda.One of the pueblo blancos, distinctly Moorish,with narrow winding streets & dazzling white houses clinging to the mountainside. Perched high in the mountains and surrounded by almond & olive trees Gaucin boasts an eagle's eyrie of a fortress known as El Castillo de'Aguila. The village has several restaurants, tapas bars and even a flamenco bar! Gaucin is within easy striking distance of Ronda with its famous Gorge de Tajo and Plaza de Toros, second oldest bullring in Spain. Further afield but accessible are the cities of Granada (with its famous Alhambra) Seville,Cordoba and Jerez.The Parque Natural at Grazalema is a must for walkers and wildlife aficionados alike where a walk/picnic in the cork forests will simply delight you.

Other Activities: Bird watching,wildlife,walking ,flora etc.
