Georgeous spot with amazing views and beautiful gardens

  • 4 of 5

Would definitely recommend the three bedroom villa lovely authentic place full of character(further two beds available in annex for larger parties).

Only advice would be to hire a 4wheel drive as the unmade road to the villa is too rough for a regular car and although you could walk to the village in about 20mins again sturdy shoes advisable due to the road.

Exceeded expectations- fantastic retreat

  • 5 of 5

Villa Reine was all that it said in the description and more. The arrangements for the meet to be shown where the property was worked well. On arrival at the villa there was a lovely welcome gift. The standard of the property is extremely high. The garden is exceptional with lovely fauna, and very well maintained. The pool and the jacuzzi are exactly as pictured - lovely. The property is snuggled into the mountain side, which gives exceptional views, and is totally secluded. Villa Reine is set in a very peaceful setting, just the sound of the goats bell as they move on the hillside below.

It is about a ¼ of a mile on an uneven steep track to get to the lovely village of Gaucin. We walked to the village every day, we enjoy walking and was certainly worth the effort for all the benefits of the Villa and gardens.

Our only regret was that we only had four days at the villa.

If you want a true escape from it all I would recommend this villa.

Villa Reina - Peaceful, Quiet and Relaxing (but within easy reach of Gaucin village).

  • 4 of 5

We have been visiting Gaucin for over 20 years and have stayed in 3 other villas, all of which provided us with the type of relaxing holiday we enjoy. However, we were quite taken by surprise at the setting of Villa Reina with its exceptional views over woodlands to the mountains in the distance and its semi-tropical gardens (with an aviary for additional birdsong sound effects). Wonderfully peaceful and colourful with just the sounds of the birds and occasional visits from the flock of sheep roaming in the woods below. We made a number of visits to Karen O'Connor's Gourmet Deli in the village as eating in gave us more time to enjoy the cooler evenings and to watch the sun go down. In the villa itself the main double bed was comfortable and there was a good shower and new fridge freezer which meant we were able to store food rather than shop daily. The gas cooker was easy to use although the worktop oven/grill did take some getting used to. We had our usual walks around the village stopping for coffee in the square with the fountain. We also did make trips to Tarifa, Ronda and Puerto Banus (for lunch by the harbour entrance) but we always enjoyed getting back to Reina's wonderfully peaceful setting. The main pool is deep virtually from the steps to the far end but the jacuzzi is an ideal splash pool for small children. Our thanks to the owners, Juan, Isabel, Marina & Tatiana for letting us use their home and garden and also to Esta & Brett for helping with the booking. We would certainly recommend Villa Reina as a tranquil retreat. We were there for 10 days in July 2017 and have been missing it since we left! We hope to be back next year.David & Susan (from Lincolnshire, UK).

Gaucin 5 mins by car, 15-20 min walk. Places of interest such as Casares, Jimena de la Frontera, Benarraba, Benalauria and Genalguacil are a short drive away and Ronda, with its impressive Tajo bridge, is just 40min away. The coast (swimming and golf), Estepona, Marbella and Puerto Banus are 35-50min away and further afield are the historic cities of Sevilla, Cadiz, Jerez, Cordoba and Granada. Tangier and the essence of north Africa is just a 30min ferry ride from Tarifa or Algeciras.

Further Details:

Perched below the ruins of a Moorish castle, at a height of over 650m, Gaucin is one of the most attractive of the pueblos blancos, 'white villages', of the Serrania de Ronda. Its lofty position affords it marvellous views, across olive and almond groves, especially south to Gibraltar and beyond to the Moroccan coast in Africa. Cosmopolitan, yet retaining its Spanish feel, Gaucin has many small shops as well as four larger 'supermarkets', a delicatessen and an excellent, well-stocked shop selling organic produce. There is a good selection of tapas bars and there are occasional live Flamenco performances in the area.

As one of the larger villages in the Serrania, Gaucin offers more facilities than most; in addition to the food shops and tapas bars there are several restaurants, an award-winning vineyard, a butchers, a bakery, a chemist, two internet cafes, a post-office, a medical centre, a small daily market, two antique shops and two banks with ATMs. The local swimming pool is open July through August and there is a free-to-use municipal tennis court; massages, beauty treatments and a range of alternative therapies can be arranged locally. Everything is within walking distance, around the winding streets of whitewashed houses, and the pace of life is still relaxingly slow.

The surrounding area is wonderful, too, apart from the many towns and villages to explore there are mountains, lakes, caves, forests, birds, wildflowers (best in Spring), as well as walking, riding, swimming, tennis, etc. The Serrania de Ronda, attractively adorned with vast swathes of cork oak and sweet-chestnut woods, has three protected national parks, Sierra de Las Nieves, Sierra Grazalema and Los Alcornocales, and the reserve of Coto Doñana, home to the iconic Iberian Lynx, is less than 3hrs away. With the stunning natural environment, and a multitude of cultural festivals and events occurring throughout the year across the region, there is always something to do when staying in Gaucin!
