Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Gaucin - Town House in Gaucin

Large 2-3 bed house, sleeps 4-6, big light kitchen opening to courtyard garden

Casa Limonera is a freshly modernised town house, yet retaining many traditional features (e.g. chestnut beams, terracotta tiles). It extends over three floors, not counting the ancient cellar, with extensive views from the rooftop terrace. Unusually, there is a mature, shady garden with a fruitful lemon tree and grapevine. Plunge pool installed in the corner of the garden. Barbecues possible. Newly renovated to create light, spacious, flexible accommodation. Situated in a very quiet street, yet close to the centre of the village. Gaucin is a pretty, lively village with a population of about 2000, which includes an active group of expatriates. The number of tapas bars, restaurants and shops are quite disproportionate to its size. Nature walks, hiking, cycling, bird-watching and horse-riding are available. Not to mention golf and beach pursuits.

Fantastic location: Gaucin's position is unbeatable, 600 m up the Serrania de Ronda, with views to the Crestellina mountain to the south, and to Gibraltar and Morocco to the west. British officers used to ride here for the weekend during the Napoleonic Wars, doubtless encouraging the local hostelries and tapas bars of that time. Around the village one can walk through unspoilt hills, watch a huge variety of birds- including impressively large one like Griffon Vultures and Short-Toed Eagles.

Parking nearby: The house is on a steep road leading up to the village. There are 2 parking slots very close to the house, with plenty more in the wide street nearby which leads to the Church.

About Nick Darker

Nick and Julie Darker are an active British couple who have lived all over the world in the course of Nick's international career. They live on a finca (country property) on the Rio Genal near Gaucin. They have four children, and an increasing number of grandchildren!

Nick Darker purchased this house in 2009

Why Nick Darker chose Gaucin

We love the space and flexibility of Casa Limonera, and enjoyed the challenge of sympathetically modernising the place when we moved in. The views from the terrace are stunning.

What makes this house unique

Unlike many other town houses in Gaucin, the house has a pretty garden with plunge pool, grape vine and lemon tree. It is close to the heart of the village, yet country walks start at the front door.

pleasant stay in gaucin

  • 5 out of 5
We had a really nice stay in Nick and Julies house in Gaucin. A nice and quiet spot with several restaurants and cafes just around the corner. Also enjoyed the pool in Gaucin, a pleasant place to relax in afternoons.
Thanks a lot to Nick an Julie for their hospitality !!

5 Tage – viel zu kurz!

  • 5 out of 5
Im Juni 2014 verbrachten wir fünf sehr entspannte Tage mit unserer dreijährigen Tochter im Haus von Nick und Julie. Das geräumige Haus, mitten in Gaucin gelegen, wurde von den beiden liebevolll restauriert und hat eine tolle, authentische Atmosphäre (kein Fernseher: super!). Von der Dachterasse konnten wir jeden Abend die marokkanischen Küstenorte funkeln sehen. Der kleine Pool im Garten war super zur kurzen Abkühlung in der Hitze des Tages. Sehr zu empfehlen für alle die sich in Ruhe erholen möchten aber dennoch nicht auf die Annehmlichkeiten eines Bergdorfes wie Gaucin verzichten wollen (jede Menge tolle Bars und Restaurants, freundlicher Tante-Emma-Supermarkt direkt um die Ecke - einer der alles bietet, was man braucht). 1000 Dank an Nick & Julie für die Einladung auf ihre Finca, der wir gerne gefolgt sind und auch für Bereitstellung der fantastischen englischen Kinderbücher und der Spielsachen für unsere Tochter.

Gaucin sits at 600 m virtually at the southern tip of Europe, with stunning views all around to Gibraltar, Morocco and across to mount Crestellina to the west. Walkers can enjoy the vast unspoiled hills towards Cortes and beyond. Golfers have numerous options on the coast. Beach lovers have a great range to select, from the sophisticated resorts on the Costa del Sol, to the delightful unspoiled shores of Trafalgar. There are a profusion of birds to see (including dramatic eagles and vultures by the score). Finally Andalucia is drenched in history and Arab-Spanish culture, with dozens of sites to visit.
