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.

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.

Stunning location

5 of 5
We love Gaucin. We stayed for two weeks (in another property) last August, and thought we would try it again to see what its like for 4 nights in March. The studio is in a stunning location - the views are just breath-taking. It does get breezy, and it was colder than we expected, but the studio itself is cosy with the two heaters supplied. We ate out each night - partly because we like it, but also the studio 'kitchen' isn't really suited to preparing meals ....... and huddled around a table eating in the main bedroom didn't really appeal. It was also too cold to dine on the patio. Contact with Mark was flawless throughout. Very quick to respond, very clear instructions and directions ..... and he checked we were all OK throughout. Parking is normally right outside the property. We had no problem on the first two days, but did struggle the next two as both spaces were taken - although we don't know who by as the Villa appeared empty. For a short stay, the studio was ideal. For anything longer and a larger party, the main villa is definitely the way to go. We've only seen the inside photos via the website, but its clearly a VERY special and loved property. Thanks very much Mark for allowing us to stay.

Didn’t get to stay but excellent customer service

5 of 5
Unfortunately due to a mix up with dates (clerical not owners fault) we did not get to stay. This happened at the very last minute leaving the owner unable to rent out the villa. However, he was very understanding and refunded almost all of our money. Therefore my five stars are for being so helpful including keeping in touch with us. We hope to visit next year!
