Make a holiday rental cottage or villa in Gaucin, Spain your home away from home

Gaucin is a delightful Andalucían whitewashed village nestled high on the Sierra de Ronda Mountains just half an hour from Spain’s magnificent Costa del Sol. With spectacular views all the way to Gibraltar along the coast or the dark Rif Mountains of inland Andalucía, Gaucin holiday villas offer a magnificent place to relax and absorb the natural surroundings and deep Spanish culture. Local goatherds and mules are regular visitors to the town, but the legendary welcome of Gaucin is even extended to these unlikely visitors!

Things to do on holiday in Gaucin, Spain

Gaucin is a stunning, natural area in spectacular surroundings, and as a result, riding stables, guided nature trails, bird watching expeditions and long mountain treks are hugely popular activities from a self catering Gaucin villa. There are a range of length and difficulties of market trails in the mountains, but huge swathes of open un-spoilt terrain to explore. During the summer, the municipal swimming pool is open to all for free.

There are six international restaurants in Gaucin, and a number of small, traditional Spanish restaurants to choose from, hiding amongst the narrow twisting streets, when you take a self catering Gaucin cottage.

Dominating the Gaucin skyline is the magnificent Eagle’s Castle or Castillo del Aguiula, and as the name suggests, it is not unusual to see these majestic birds of prey circling over head.

Gaucin celebrates a number of fiestas during the year, all of which are lively and very enjoyable times to be in the town, but the best of them, the festival of Santo Nino is in September, and is a fabulous time to take a holiday rental in Gaucin, with singing, dancing, horse racing and processions. The annual fair in August also rates highly on the list of exciting events in Gaucin.

There are foreign visitors, like us, but it is still predominantly a Spanish town, full of friendly people ready to say hola! Our property is in the centre of activity but in a quiet lane. I won't describe it in detail, you can read that on the website, it's sufficient to say the view of the mountains from the terrace, with Gibraltar on the horizon, is breathtaking. Can't wait to come back.

Firstly I must thank Sylvia and Joe who were responsible for creating the perfect apartment for our relaxing holiday, just wonderful. We enjoyed everything, the beautiful terrace with its spectacular views across to Gibraltar and Africa, the overall comfort and stylish decor, it felt like home from home. There is absolutely everything you need, we tried to spend time at the splendid infinity pool every day, very relaxing. There is so much to do in and around Gaucin, other reviewers have already mentioned. We have travelled Spain for many years and have never found so many wonderful restaurants in one small town. Try as many as you can or save some for your next visit! Gaucin is a special place and so is Sylvia and Joe's Rosa Alta Apartment.

We were not disappointed.....our welcome from Diana was warm and generous as she greeted us with homemade Gazpacho and vegetables from the local farm. The house was spacious and peaceful with tremendous views over the surrounding countryside. We all absolutely loved the pool with a view, a wonderful place to cool down and relax. Thank you Diana for making our stay so special.
