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.

Peaceful and beautiful

The property is exactly as it is described. Our first visit to Gaucin and to this delightful casa. We enjoyed every aspect of our holiday and look forward to returning again. Thank you Philip and Augustina.

The balcony of the Serrania

  • 5 of 5

The apartment mirrors the title of the little town Gaucin: "Le balcon de la Serrania". 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).

Cosy, nicely furnished and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

We loved the place, it had all we needed and more. The views are great, it lies in a quiet neighborhood, in a street with no cars, but close to the bars and restaurants and to the shops. Everything was perfectly taken care of by Philip, the owner, and Augustina, the local housekeeper. We absolutely recommend the place to people who love the peace and quiet in a beautiful mountain village.

The lovely ' dolls house' !

  • 5 of 5

Our second trip to the property and we enjoyed it every bit as much! This time without the need for the log fire in January . Lovely village , lovely restaurants and lovely casa. The area is beautiful and exploring more of the quirky villages was really interesting . The 'dolls house' casa is well equipped , the bed and pillows are comfy and the view from the terrace is priceless.

This an excellent small cottage. Really it is an old village house, very nicely done.

  • 5 of 5

The house is well oriented for the fabulous view and for sun and village noise. It is also well located for easy reach of everything in the village.

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!
