STUNNING 6 BEDROOM COUNTRY HOUSE, 20M X 5M HEATED POOL, AMAZING MOUNTAIN VIEWS

Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday chateau / country house in Gaucin - Casa Albanile

Moorish-European architecture, spacious, high-ceiling rooms, perfect for groups.

A sumptuous six bedroom country house with 20m heated pool, set amidst glorious scenery on a 50 acre estate, Casa Albanile mixes European and Moorish styles for a house with a definite 'wow' factor. Relaxation and comfort are paramount: spacious rooms can be air conditioned, extensive terraces for outdoor dining and lounging, the indoor `great room´ perfect for cosy nights in front of the fireplace, the pool inviting a cool dip or a serious swim. Bedrooms are quiet and ensuite. The house is private and secluded, with panoramic mountain views.

Walk out onto the estate for a morning's stroll, look out for deer, partridge, our horses (retired), soaring eagles and hawks, wonderful wildflowers...

Only 3 miles from the 'white village' Gaucin, 1/2 hour to the Mediterranean coast, with easy access to Gibraltar/Malaga airports, Ronda, Marbella, and the Costa del Sol, the house is a perfect base for touring. Or just sit back, enjoy the wonderful views and the soaring birds, and unwind.

Horse riding:: We can put you in touch with a stable near Casa Albanile where countryside rides can be arranged. It is best to bring your own hat and boots.

Walking and Hiking: Local guides can take you off the beaten track, across the mountains and into the valleys, for wonderful views you cannot get from the road. We can put you in touch with them to make your own arrangements, depending on your ability.

Cook service, Maid Service, Massage, Yoga: If you do not want to cook, or go out to restaurants, we can put you in touch with cooks who will deliver food to the house for you. They can stay and serve it as well, or just leave it for you to heat and eat.

Extra maid service can be arranged, if required.

Massage and yoga by request.

AND FINALLY--

As the caretakers, we live on the same estate, completely separate and out of sight of Casa Albanile. Without disturbing your privacy, WE ARE THERE TO MAKE YOUR HOLIDAY AS ENJOYABLE AS POSSIBLE, SHOULD YOU NEED ANY HELP OR ADVICE. We will meet you in the village to show you the way, introduce you to the house and the area, and answer any questions you may have.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have been two families with six kids staying here for a week. The kids loved the pool and spent most of the days swimming and playing. Their parents also enjoyed walking and (in early morning) jogging in the beautiful, unspoiled scenery.



Each evening we enjoyed a drink while watching the sun set in the fantastic scenery on the northern side of the house.



The villa itself is beautiful and impressive and really feels luxurious. It is a remote and beautiful setting, perfect if you want to relax and explore nature.



Yesterday we had Maria cooking paella, good food and nice company, recommended!



Thanks to Linda and Namir for hospitality, helpful information, and for sharing their place with us!

Unsurpassed!

  • 5 out of 5
This was the most spectacular and enjoyable property we have ever stayed in. We can't fault anything and after nearly two decades of family holidays this is the first property we would wish to return to. We wanted spectacular scenery and peace and were not disappointed. The tuned grand piano was a treat and as keen swimmers we made full use of the longest swimming pool we have ever rented and are much fitter in consequence.
Linda and Amir are delightful and informative hosts and as well as ensuring that our stay in the house was trouble free, came up trumps in response to some bizarre requests.
This property cannot fail to enchant you!

Wonderful Week

  • 5 out of 5
Casa Albanile is a delightful country villa which is actually better than in the photos. The villa is large and spacious with all the bedrooms well spaced so you do not get any noise from other bedrooms. The villa is on top of a hill with great views and you are not overlooked from any direction. It is very quite and the only noise comes from songbirds and the occasional eagle. The swimming pool is lovely and is the biggest private pool I have seen with the added benefit of a cover if the weather is a bit cool.

I highly recommend this villa for a relaxing holiday.

Thank you Linda and Amir.

A most wonderful time...

  • 5 out of 5
We must really thank you again for our stay at Albanile. We had the most wonderful time at your Palace in the Sky and very much hope to return one day soon. We will never forget the sight of El Hacho silhouetted against the sky. The views were memorable and the house was perfect both in cold weather during the winter and in the sun. We really miss it and all the picturesque and exciting wildlife ...

With our best wishes to you both and looking forward to seeing you again soon

Truly unique

  • 5 out of 5
" I had the great pleasure of staying at Casa Albanile for two weeks last summer with my family and highly recommend it. It was fantastic!

The property itself is truly unique, a Moroccan influenced house with large rooms, open fireplaces and all beautifully furnished. There is plenty of space, so even with lots of children, you can find a quiet place if you need to. It's surroundings are magnificent too, with wild countryside and mountains, all of which are viewed from the house. It's wonderfully quiet and yet easy to reach the local town of Gaucin for restaurants and provisions and the coast is only 30 minutes away.
There is a great swimming pool and more places for children to play and explore than they will ever need!

If you need a place to relax and unwind, this is the house for you. We all loved it and will definitely return!

Casa Albanile is a good center for touring and site seeing. The golden trio of Andalucian cities, Sevilla, Granada, and Córdoba, are all possible day trips. Or take the ferry to Tangier for the day for a real change of scene.

Ronda, with its spectacular gorge, the oldest bullring in Spain, and its echoes of Moorish and Roman times is only 45 minutes away. Marbella and Gibraltar are also within easy reach. A visit to the nearby Mediterranean and Atlantic beaches contrasts with the mountain hideaway of the finca. White villages cling to the hillsides of the quiet mountain roads, Grazalema Natural Park has spectacular mountain scenery and serious footpaths for walkers. And the peace and quiet of Casa Albanile welcomes your return at the end of a busy day.

Other Activities: Summer Ferias (festivals) in all the local villages

Golf: There are golf courses on the coast about 40 minutes' drive away.
