Gaucin Village: Gaucin village is only ten minutes walk from the villa. The village is well placed for fantastic walks (organised if required), horse riding which is available from a local stable and general sight seeing of other neighbouring White Villages. There are good local shops with everything you may require for a get away from it all break, excellent restaurants and tapas bars. The weather is hot in summer with winters of clear skies and frost free evenings. Springtime almond blossom and wild flowers colour the countryside whilst autumn sunshine is perfect to extend the summer feel good factor! Great house to relax and chill

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Jane,



Just a quick email to thank you for all your help - we are now home and back into the horrible dark days, but the holiday was fabulous. Gaucin is a wonderful village, it helped that my other half speaks fluent Spanish, and despite the weather, I think we met a few of the local characters! We love the villa, although the pool was a little refreshing even for us, so we hope to be able to return at some point and make better use of it. We ended up having dinner and a night in La Fructuosa, which was also excellent and the drive back and forward was very simple once we had mastered the driveway!



It was just what we needed as our last holiday before I cant fly any more, so despite the showers, when it cleared up the views were stunning and we made good use of the log burner!



I hope everything was left satisfactorily, we spoke to the cleaner as we left and she seemed happy, so I will add this to my list of favourites and we may well be in touch again once things have settled down.



Thank you again on behalf of myself and Gregor, my other half, we thought it was beautiful, peaceful area and well worth the trip.



Kind regards,

Katherine

Amazing

  • 5 out of 5
The photos of this property do not do it justice.
We just returned from a lovely 11 day stay in this house. I have rented many properties around the world however the views from this house are really outstanding.The owner has been very thoughtful in providing everything you could could think of needing in a rental property. And it all works.
Although a small car is a must to be able to visit the area we thoroughly enjoyed the daily walk into town.The easy 35 min drive to Ronda which is definitely worth a visit but is inundated with tourists made us appreciate returning to the quiet simplicity of Gaucin.
This is an ideal choice if you are looking for a visit to the "real" Spain as opposed to the coast which has sadly been horribly spoiled.

We had a fantastic stay in Finca La Luz. The house and pool are fantastic. It is even better than the photos. We loved the pool, the views and that is was always possible to find shade.

I highly recommend Finca La Luz

Great time

  • 4 out of 5
Jane,
We had a wonderful time in your home exploring southern Spain. Your location was perfect for taking day trips throughout the region. As a "country boy" from the USA the driveway and road leading to it was not an issue. The stars and moon were magnificent during our stay with nightly views of shooting stars. The only issue was the neighbor with the many barking dogs that seemed to want to howl constantly. The residents of Gaucin couldn't have been been nicer or accommodating. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Amazing pool and views in a lovely house

  • 5 out of 5
We visited in August. The weather was hot and sunny (right after a major heat wave) so we really loved/appreciated the saltwater pool which is a great size, has amazing views of the old moorish fort (beautifully lit at night) and a shaded area with lounge chairs. As others describe, the house has everything you'd want for a very comfortable stay. The kitchen was well supplied with cooking utensils/ great eat. It's also nice that they leave some of the soaps/cleaning materials/spices from other visitors so you don't have to start totally from scratch if you will cook -- which we did most nights. Also has a dishwasher which was really nice.
The pictures show the house well. The bathrooms (3 full baths), not shown in the pictures are all very, very nice and spaceous. The small room described as having no furniture works very well for a single. Its a twin bed, with book shelf and a few chairs. Opens to the top terrace and shares the master bath. The television has VCR and DVD and we had teenagers with us so we didn't have any challenges figuring it out as the last visitors mentioned:). We've stayed in many other homeaway rentals, this is one of the nicest. Gaucin is great -- and doesn't feel touristy like Mijas does (town near coast). Restaurants are very good as are grocery stores all of which are very reasonably priced. If reviews on Homeaway are important to your selection, I can assure you, if every person who signed the guestbook in the house had left a review on this site -- there would be hundreds - two full books of great compliments for this property.
That leaves one last thing -- the road to the villa (the location is very nice.) The first time you head down the "track" -- a narrow dirt road, that leads to many houses (many very large homes) it's a bit nerve wracking. You drive about .5 kilometers. Then drive through a gate, down a short driveway to your parking space - which is very large and totally level - and on main level of villa. It definitely seems narrow, but after the first two times -- you'll realize you have plenty of space and tons of space to turnaround. I traveled the road 2-3 times a day for the week and only met cars 3 times. There is always a place for one car to pull over -- so never fear -- don't let the driveway comments deter you. Being situated just outside the town is what makes the finca so special. Thanks Jane.

Perfect Pueblo Blanco Retreat, Gaucin

  • 5 out of 5
Sometimes you just luck out and land in the best possible place, and that's how we felt when we found ourselves at Finca la Luz over the Easter holiday in 2012. The weather wasn't particularly cooperative early in the trip, with several days of fog and clouds and light rain, but even that made for some spectacular views from the decks across the mountains all the way to Africa. Even managed to produce a painting of that foggy view that got into an international art show.

Truth is, the whole place is pretty spectacular. Plenty of space for two couples, up and down, a great, newly remodeled kitchen, comfortable beds and large baths. An extra sleeping room, if needed. And, oh, the views from the decks. A large lounge area. Never figured out the TV, but we didn't need it. And we were there too early in the season for the pool, which I imagine would be fantastic in the summer, especially with the cool room just above it. We had to ask for help with the heat when we first arrived, but someone was right there. Maybe a "how-to" on that would be helpful.

The place is nicely isolated in the trees, and the road down wasn't bad at all. Maybe it was that we live in the mountains and are used to inclines, or maybe some of the earlier reviews of the track were a little overstated. Just didn't see it as a problem so long as someone didn't try to bring in a really big car. Did need to master the turnaround, but we had a 4-door BMW and never a problem.

Thanks to the owner for the information on where to visit and where to eat in the area. Was good advice, and we ended up really enjoying two or three of the higher end restaurants in Gaucin along with a couple of the tapas bars. Was great fun to watch soccer, have a beer and enjoy tapas with the locals, who made us feel right at home. Also, seemed everywhere we went, people knew Jane the owner of the villa. Certainly everyone, especially at the little grocery and the shops, took great care of us.

From the location we were able to get to Granada and back comfortably in day; similarly, had a great day in Tangiers. All-in-all, we lucked out and found a great place. Would love to go back.

A perfect week at Finca La Luz

  • 5 out of 5
Fab villa in an amazing location. Wonderful views and ambience. Great for a relaxing family holiday with two teenagers (14 and 15). Everyone loved the pool and my daughter and I enjoyed walking 10 minutes up the track each morning to fetch croissants and fresh bread fro breakfast from the deli in Gaucin. The hire car did not get used as much as expected but we were not completely lazy and enjoyed a variety of short and longer walks directly from the villa. Walked up to Gaucin every evening for a beer and returned to BBQ on the terrace. Just perfect and loved by the whole family.

Gaucin is located in the tranquil Serrania de Ronda. It is an unspoilt peaceful' pueblo blanco' . There is plenty to explore, spectacular views across the valley and to Morrocco , good mix of restaurants and tapas bars. Climb to the old Roman castle with the great views. Walk in the countryside with a profusion of wild flowers in Spring and watch the eagles soar over Finca La Luz during the day. There is a tennis court and swimming pool in the village. The coast and some of the best golf courses are only 25 minutes from Gaucin, Andalucia, Spain. Forty minutes drive through fantastic countryside & cork forests takes you to Ronda, Cordoba, Cadiz, Seville and Granada are all within a days drive. A day trip to Morocco ( Tangiers in North Africa) is a must and a guide can be arranged.

Other activities : windsurfing at Tarifa (90 mins) and explore Ronda (40 mins)

Other Activities: bird watching and walking and horse riding
