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.
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!
