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.

Places to holiday in Gaucin, Spain

Ronda and Montejaque are two beautiful destinations further into the mountains of Andalucia. Whilst Montejaque is a small, traditional pueblo blanco, Ronda is quickly becoming one of the most popular destinations in the area.

The magnificent beach resorts of the Costa del Sol are just a half hours drive from holiday accommodation in Gaucin, with the resorts of Marbella, Mijas and Estepona easily accessible. With limitless beaches, exquisite restaurants and nightlife and more sport and leisure facilities than you can imagine, a day trip to the coast from the peace of a Gaucin cottage makes an excellent option.

The house is beautiful and immaculately clean. We were a party of 5: one 11 month old, 2 parents and 2 grandparents, and the house was perfect for our needs. Baby loved crawling around in the spacious lounge and all the toys provided. Grandparents were in birdwatching heaven with eagles and vultures spotted from the balcony within 10 minutes of our arrival. The village is great, lovely deli 3 minutes walk from the house which supplied several dinners for whichever couple drew the short straw and did the babysitting. Lots of nice tapas bars and we had fantastic meals at La Fructuosa and Platero & Co. Helen was very helpful and friendly via email, and everything about our visit went really smoothly. The house was so well set up for a family with a baby- excellent off-road pushchair, loads of plastic kitchenware and very solid stair gate! We hope to return some day- thank you!

Linda and Peter have put in lots of thought and little touches to make for a welcoming stay. The super large bed made for a blissful night's sleep and the electric over blanket was a nice touch for the cool April evenings. Also plenty of other heating options to warm you through the evnings. We were the first guests to enjoy the newly installed WIFI. It has a reliable signal and helps you plan local excursions. Plenty of good local bars and restaurants - we enjoyed Platero & Co enough to go twice. Lots of walking in idyllic countryside (climb El Hacho if you enjoy a challenge - be prepared to scramble up and down). Many places to visit within an easy 45 minute to 2 hour journey through stunning scenery. We did many of them - the unspoilt Atlantic beaches, Ronda, Mediterranean beaches, Ubrique and highlight of them all the Genal Valley - take a day to explore it. Thanks for the holiday memories - we may well return on one of our next visits to our own home on the Costa del Sol.
