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.

Weather in Gaucin, Spain

With average temperatures annually remaining above 16˚C, there is never a bad time to take a Gaucin holiday villa to explore the mountains. Winter temperatures are very rarely below 12˚C.

As expected the weather was variable at that time of year with a couple of glorious weeks with temperatures in excess of 25 degrees and another couple of weeks with lots of rain. The apartment had everything you could possibly want whatever the weather. It is a true home from home, beautifully presented with all the equipment you could ask for whether you are cooking and eating at home or planning a day on the beach. The bed is extremely comfortable and we slept extremely well and a powerful shower was a very welcome surprise as we normally experience poor water pressure in that part of the world. The entertainment package on the TV was incredible, with lots of UK and Irish channels, all sports channels and a video club with all the latest films available. Catch up tv was amazing and you were able t watch anything that had been on any channel the previous month, wish we could get this in UK! The level of detailed information supplied by Greig in advance meant we had very few queries and knew what we were doing in arrival. A very comfortable stay and we totally fell in love with La Duquesa so much so we are thinking of moving there ourselves. The location of the apartment can't be bettered, stepping out onto the promenade and immediately beside the marina. Fabulous stay, many thanks.

It was spotlessly clean, beautifully furnished, and has many personal touches which make it feel like a loved home rather than a rented house. The decor was very tasteful and the Moroccan touches lovely. The views from the 2 terraces are spectacular and the top floor, the living room, is wonderfully light; we ate all our meals here. The kitchen is really well equipped and is another lovely, spacious room. The large shower on the ground floor is just great! One thing to note: This house might not be suitable for very young children as it is spread over 4 floors and the stairs between floors have no handrails - you soon get used to the open stairs though. The house is well located in Gaucin, a large village with numerous bars offering a good choice of outdoor eating. There are some lovely walks from the village and the surrounding area is mountainous and spectacular. We would love to return in late spring when the flowers will be at their best; this is a good area to be based if you are a keen bird watcher. Jenny was very easy to communicate with and answered all our questions promptly. Brett met us when we arrived and was really helpful, as well as a font of local knowledge. We couldn't recommend this property more highly. It was a privilege to stay here and we look forward to returning. Pam Bury

This was our first extended holiday and we were looking for a somewhere that provided a homely feeling as well as a holiday vibe. We were not disappointed by the property or location. The property is as described by the owner and contained everything that we needed for the month we stayed. The pool was open, and although cold, was fine once you were in. The weather soon dried us off. It was surprisingly hot at times. The terrain must be mentioned, as there have been one or two comments on the steepness in parts. Yes, there are some hills, but no different to much of the Costa del Sol. We had our car with us, but we hardly used it locally, walking to most locations, including the supermarket for light shopping. The port is 0.84 of a mile from the apartment. There are lots of places to eat, and will suit most budgets. We particularly enjoyed La Traviata and Victor Grill, (Argentinian steak house). The 'Slowboat to China' was a really good value and tasty Chinese. The next town along the coast is Sabinillas. We really like that location as it a town used by locals and tourists alike, that means there are always lots of places open, out of season. The other beauty about the area is there is a good mixture of walking, either along the front both ways or up into the hills, including Manilva. Again, we really liked Manilva as it is a typical working Spanish town. There are bus stops nearby which go to Gibraltar and Estepona and beyond. We did both and they are very cheap. Other days out where we used the car were Jimena de Fronterra, Casares (although this is walkable up the valley),and Mijas Pueblo. Jimena was not the prettiest village on the Costa, but what it lacked in character was more than made up for by the views from the castle. Casares was a bit more characterful, and again had spectacular views from the church at the top. Mijas was outstandingly pretty, and obviously caters for tourism, but well worth the visit. Mark, the owner, was very helpful at all times, and answered any queries we had promptly. I would certainly consider using the property again. Quick tip: The next time we drive to Spain we will strongly consider the overnight ferry to Bilbao or Santander for both journeys. Driving down through France felt like a long way, in fact it was, from North Wales to La Duquesa 1,697 miles!
