Overview

About the property

Small, delightful, mountain village houses don't get much better than this

Small, delightful, mountain village houses don't get much better than this, and Casa Muñeca which sleeps 3 could not be situated in a more magical place. Located on one of the tangle of old narrow winding streets and lanes that make up the heart of the village, Casa Muñeca is located some midway between the apply named Eagle's Castle (Castillo del Águila) and the village center.

This Gaucín, single story house, cleaned and managed locally, has an abundance of style and immense warmth. Pretty as a picture inside, the house has the distinctive, traditional character of Southern Spain, with terracotta floors, hand-glazed local tiles, soft, relaxing colours and furnishings. For the cooler months an open log fire along with a gas fire and electric heating radiators, combine to give a warm cosy feel. Put simply Casa Muñeca stands out from other Andalucían cottages and combines the spectacular, breathtaking, natural surroundings of this part of inland Andalucía with excellent facilities - the kind of place you'll want to revisit time and time again.

A place where, from the terrace at the rear of Casa Muñeca, it's not unusual to see Eagles soaring overhead. Then looking down over the surrounding countryside towards the coast - over the valley of the Rio Genal, woods of Cork trees and craggy peaks - to see some 50 km distant, Gibraltar and the Mediterranean spread out below like some super sized map and on a clear day you can see beyond Europe over the straits of Gibraltar to Africa and the distant Rift mountains of Morocco.

An amazing place to relax and chill

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful week in this gorgeous house! Once through the door, it is difficult to leave! Sitting out on the balcony watching the view was wonderful; you can see for literally miles and miles. Above eagles soar and sounds of the village below waft up to give a deliciously Spanish feel. We both love Gaucin and loved to stroll through the village. Locals are super friendly and everyone is welcoming. There are bars and restaurants to choose from, but we preferred our own version up on the terrace of Cass Muneca. The best all round views in town. We will definitely be back to stay here! It is not just what it says 'on the tin' but way more. Thank you to Phillip and Agustina! A great stay!

Lovely house in fantastic place

  • 5 of 5

Great little house, very comfortable and wonderful views from the balcony. Gaucin is a typical rural whitewashed village, uncommercialised but with plenty of bars and restaurants though and the people are very helpful and friendly. Agustina the local contact is delightful.

Perfect - Fantastic stay in Casa Muneca

  • 5 of 5

We've had a fantastic stay Casa Muneca, the property is perfect, well equipped, comfortable and the location idyllic. Gaucin is a small friendly village with many bars that offer food and several restaurants that were better than average – we would single out particularly Platero & Co in this respect, but to give perspective time did not allow us to sample all of the 10? village restaurants. We only stayed a week in Casa Muneca and can truly say that we wished we had spent longer there. Our initial plans for exploring the area and long walks were with a couple of days abandoned as we settled in to the most relaxing and fulfilling holiday we have had for ages. We were undoubtedly seduced by the incredible views from the terrace of the house where we spent many hours relaxing and chilling out, sometimes sipping wine and watching eagles circling overhead and occasional seeing a small mule train clip clopping past the front door. The house was all you could ask for and more and we were left wondering how anyone could ever rent out such an idyll to strangers. If we had to sum up in a single word it would be ‘perfect’.

Cosy Casa in Beautiful Gaucin

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for three days in the middle of May 2017. We were lucky enough to be in Gaucin for the village's reenactment of the Napoleonic troops taking the city. That was truly something to see! When we first arrived we had a problem with the plumbing. We emailed Philip the owner and he got back to us immediately. Turns out the momentary problem was a fluke. No problems at all with the waterworks after that. We were very impressed with Philip's prompt reply and friendly suggestions and directions for orienting ourselves to this hillside town. Gaucin is an enchanting town and this rental is so comfortable and well-equipped. A wonderfully authentic whitewashed flat with a fabulous view!

Casa Muñeca really is magical.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Muñeca. The location is great and we immediately felt right at home. There was everything we needed and more. We particularly enjoyed the outdoor patio and it's superb view. A great place to relax, have a glass of wine and enjoy the sunshine. Highly recommended.

In 4 days we experienced a fortnight's holiday in this magical place.

  • 5 of 5

Gaucin is a warren of narrow streets with white houses, bars, restaurants tucked away in intimate corners. There are foreign visitors, like us, but it is still predominantly a Spanish town, full of friendly people ready to say hola!

Our property is in the centre of activity but in a quiet lane. I won't describe it in detail, you can read that on the website, it's sufficient to say the view of the mountains from the terrace, with Gibraltar on the horizon, is breathtaking. Can't wait to come back.
