Make a holiday rental cottage or villa in Gaucin, Spain your home away from home

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.

Handy for small supermarkets and petrol station and plenty of places to eat. Well situated for visiting Serania de Ronda, the Alcornocales or Sierra de Grazelema.

The studio is beautiful and comfortable and well equipped. The village itself is quiet and relaxing but has everything you need within walking distance - restaurants, supermarket, craft shops etc. I'm writing this review very late (sorry!) - we actually stayed here in 2015 but the calendar wouldn't let me go back that far! I still dream about this place. Would love to return one day. Perfect. Thank you x
