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!

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.

The annual fair in August also rates highly on the list of exciting events in Gaucin.

Great restaurants and bars serving excellent food within a few minutes stroll. Very beautiful and friendly village. Would highly recommend for those seeking the real Spain away from the Cost as.

The location was fantastic, very private and the pool big enough to swim in (not always the case). There are lots of places to sit and enjoy the views which are all around. The house was very well appointed with everything you need. It's only just within walking distance from the village by day, and only if you are feeling energetic as it's down a very steep dirt track. A more roundabout but hard surface access for cars is much better. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property.
