My entire life, I have been an avid lover of all things Spanish--the food, the culture, the music. However, whenever I make journey over to Spain, I always go to Madrid or the north. For the first time in my life, I decided to venture into the south. It was the best decision I ever made! Sylvia and Joe sent a car to pick my husband and me up from the airport, and within the first few minutes, I wondered why I had never come here before. The beautiful, sprawling mountainous landscape was visible even from the car, and it only got better once we reached the gorgous, white village of Gaucin. The apartment has the perfect placement. It is within walking distance of everything, including Paco Pepe (my favorite tapas bar by the end of the trip) and a lovely, tiny grocery store with great bread and delicious fruit. The exterior of the apartment, huge oak doors on a quiet street, were perfect, but the inside was even better. The white furniture is extremely stylish (my favorite part is the painting of the donkey, matching the donkey who lives below our huge bay window), and very comfortable. The bed was perfectly sized, and the bathroom was very spacious, though there was another one should we have wanted to get ready simultaneously. As a regular traveler, I often stay in apartments, but nothing I have ever experienced even compares to this. We had a fully-stocked kitchen, a wonderful infinity pool, and a beautiful terrace. Most importantly, however, we had complete access to the gorgeous view of the huge Spanish mountains, the rock of Gibralter, and the mountains of Africa. It was the best vacation of my life, and I fully, completely reccommend this apartment to anyone who wants to experience true Spanish culture.
