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.

Flights to Gaucin, Spain

Gaucin, despite its remote feel is only an hour from Gibraltar Airport (GIB), or an hour and a half from Malaga International Airport (AGP). Cheap flights to both airports leave from over 20 airports across the UK, and there are regular deals on cheap flights, especially to Malaga.

Lovely home in great location

5 of 5
Myself and my 2 children (aged 10 and 14) have recently returned from Casa Carmen. The pictures are accurate and the villa is clean and comfortable. The pool is essential. It is small but private and the views are incredible. The steps both inside and outside make the house unsuitable for young children but the owner's details advise this. The patio area beneath the pool is lovely for lounging and eating outside. The balcony at the front of the property off the top bedroom also makes a lovely place to sit. The village is friendly and has everything you need for food shopping, bars and restaurants so you do not need to leave if you don't want to. I drove from Malaga airport and was surprised at how easy it is was a novice overseas driver. Ronda and the coast are an easy drive in well under an hour. But was always nice to come home to Gaucin. Parking is perhaps the only negative but we were always able to park nearby. We would recommend this property.

Lovely rural property

4 of 5
We had a great week. The house is very attractive and well-equipped, in a quiet rural situation. The pool is a good size and ideal for families. Would certainly recommend it to our friends.
