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.

                                                                                                    Jenny and Mark's house is lovely. It exceeded all expectations. 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

The Cottage in Gaucin was well equipped and comfortable, well placed for excellent walking and only 100M or so into Gaucin itself. Anabel was very helpful and we had a great trip

We had wall-to-wall sunshine and real warmth. The house is fabulous and the description, photos and video on the HomeAway site do not overstate. We were very comfortable. Esther cooked for us on three evenings which was a great boon - she is a good cook and we particularly recommend her gazpacho, lamb and paella. We were there to relax and so did not travel large distances. We enjoyably visited several towns within a 30 mile radius - the pick was probably Casares where there were 50 eagles circling and swooping above our heads. The main supermarket in Gaucin was more than adequate for us and has a large selection of wine. Several reviewers have commented on the approach road which is about a mile partly concreted and partly unmade. It was daunting at first sight but we were soon used to it. 4WD is unnecessary but we would recommend a vehicle with adequate ground clearance as a low-slung sports car would ground on one of the concrete sections. Strongly recommended.
