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. Having maintained its rich historical legacy and dramatic natural surroundings, Ronda is an ideal place to visit from your Gaucin villa.

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.

                                    A wonderful place to stay

                                    We had a wonderful stay, everything we needed was available. The groceries we received on arrival were much appreciated. The views were spectacular and everything was really clean and in excellent condition. We would have no problem returning. The only downside was the barking dogs thru the night, which we since found out is common in rural Spain.

                                    My friend and I had the most fantastic holiday and stay at La Almuña. We just love it so much that we already booked our next holiday staying there! In the lovely and wonderful house there is everything you need, inside and outside.There is a lot of space for doing what you want. having a a quiet time or doing a supper party. You will be surprised, the website pictures is surpassed by reality. it is SO wonderful that words and photographs are not enough to describe the place. For us it is the paradise on earth!
