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.

The setting is stunning and we enjoy the pool and grounds as much as the house. Amazing wildlife including birds of pray that soared over the house in the mornings. A week didn't really give us time to do the area justice as we didn't leave the house much but our day out in Ronda was great. I would diffently recommend this property for relaxation and a taste of real Spain Thank you for a wonderful holiday

It was clean, tidy and immaculately kept. The owner was very helpful and we utilised the chef on several occasions. My whole family loved the location and the experience. Thank you very much!

The villa was perfect with everything that we needed to hand. We felt at home as soon as we walked in. The views were just breath taking and there was always a cooling breeze as the temperatures got to 37c on one of the days. Four adults and 1 child stayed here and there was plenty of room. The decor was great, very simple which added to the charm of the location. The location is great with a short walk to the village and all the lovely restaurants and bars. We also had a fantastic meal at the nearby La Fructuosa restaurant which is only the shortest of walks away. Gaucin is a really pretty village which has managed to keep its charm. You can spend hours walking around all the tiny streets and stopping at the bars for a coffee or beer. The only trouble was that a week was not long enough as there are so many places to visit. We will be returning.
