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.

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.

                                                          We had a great time at Rosa Alta. It felt as if the Counry House, gardens, swimming pool etc were built with great care. The view was beautiful, the nature just great in Spring and the weather was nice. The silence and privacy we really liked. Rosa Alta is not a ' spic and span' new house , but it' s a house with a soul.

                                                          A lovely holiday in a charming house

                                                          Casa Muneca is a very comfortable and well-equipped property, clean and very well maintained and with a gorgeous view over the rooftops to the med and Gibraltar. There are plenty of bars and restaurants in Gaucin which is a large friendly village high in the hills with a tangle of little streets and alleys and lovely to explore on foot. It is within easy distance of Ronda and Jimena de la Frontera, and the local cork oak forests are wonderful for bird-watching! We would love to return sometime.

                                                          We were only here for a short time but the property is lovely with the most incredible views. Rooms were large and mostly en-suite with lovely décor. We also enjoyed the selection of films and magazines when the skies clouded over. There is also plenty of information on the surrounding area and we did a couple of the recommended walks which were fabulous. A bit too cool to use the pool but would be lovelyin the summer. Gaucin is really charming and only 5 mins walk to the many bars and restaurants within the village, from simple friendly bars selling tapas to some really quite excellent restaurants, just a shame we weren't here long enough to try them all! Also a relatively quick trip down to the coast.
