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.

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.

Exquisite house, idyllic village & magical views

  • 5 of 5

House was exactly as advertised. Agustina, the lady who met us was charming & allowed me to practice my Spanish.

Very comfortable sofas, beds & everything you need in the kitchen.

Views from every window & terrace & the village is so peaceful yet a hive of activity.

Restaurants and bars welcoming with delicious food.

We hope to return again.

Very grateful to the owner in sharing his home.

Magical

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and couldn't fault anything, everything was as we expected and the property catered for all our needs. It was nice to experience the traditional spanish setting.

Maybe ear plugs could be supplied.. to avoid an early rise from the cockerel was the only downfall.... but quickly forgotten as we got to see the early sunrise views from the terrace.

Would highly recommend to others

A lovely holiday in a charming house

  • 5 of 5

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.
