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.

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.

Sitting on the terrace of the apartment one has a spectacular view. At night you can see the lights of the cities situated at the Mediterranean Sea. The apartment has a personal touch, nicely decorated with lots of collection pieces. You have a spacious combined kitchen-dining-sitting room, two bedrooms (one with a double bed, one with a single bed) and a adequately sized bathroom again with a great view. The kitchen is fully equipped. The supermarket is in walking distance. There are a number of restaurants in town which serve good food for reasonable prices. It is very quiet, which makes you realize how much noise one usually is exposed to when living in a city. We had a very relaxing time and did great hikes in the vicinity. We can also recommend a day trip to Ronda (~1h driving) and to the coast (e.g. Marbella, ~1h driving).

As part of our holiday in Spain we spent 3 weeks at this villa with friends getting to know the village and the district and sometimes just settling down with the excellent collection of books. I am sure we will return. The local management team are to be thanked for the prompt and friendly help they gave one of our friends with a puncture. No recommendation is complete without mention of the billionaire class views.
