About the property

3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, sleeps 2 to 6

Our house is situated in the heart of the lovely village of Gaucin - one of the most attractive of the pueblos blancos - near its beautiful church and Moorish castle. The villa is in easy walking distance of a number of excellent tapas bars and restaurants. It comprises a main house, private pool and casita. The main house has a superb kitchen/dining room, very spacious living area with a cozy log burner for those coooler nights and lots of rustic charm. An open staircase leads to a huge romantic master bedroom, a lovely terrace with views of the floodlit castle, an elegant sitting/dressing room with balcony and a spectacular bathroom. Up another level there is a large shaded roof terrace with fantastic views. The pool separates the two parts of the house with stepping stones across from main house to casita. It is truly stunning and totally private with a cascade waterfall feature flowing out of a mosaic tiled arch. There is seating in the pool for keeping cool while sipping your drinks in the heat of summer. The 'casita' comprises an alfresco dining room with bbq area and open fireplace and overlooks the private pool. Inside the casita there is a bathroom and 2 additional bedrooms with a sunny terrace.

The main house can provide a spacious romantic getaway whilst with the casita it provides excellent accommodation for up to two families. The casita is never let separately.

Cautions: The access between the two houses is on large stepping stones through the pool. Obviously care must be taken at all times. It is the renters responsibility to supervise children at all times. The pool is over a metre deep and so children must be able to swim or wear flotation aids whenever you have the doors to the pool area open. In consideration of this and the open staircases we do not accept under 5yr olds for reasons of safety.

Parking: The street that the house is on has parking on both sides of the street within 25 metres of the door. If this is ever full there are other places nearby.

Why Ian Addinsell chose Ronda area

What is special about our place is the spaciousness of the rooms and high ceilings keeping the place cool in the heat of summer. Having a pretty pool in a property in the centre of town is unusual too.

What makes this house unique

Lovely house manager and excellent cleaner ensures your stay is trouble free.

Gaucin is situated in the unspoilt Serrania de Ronda. It is an enchanting 'pueblo blanco' where the traditional Spanish way of life is still very strong. Narrow pretty streets to explore, spectacular views, good restaurants and bars. The village has its own pool and tennis court. Walk in the countryside, where mules are the preferred transport, see a profusion of wild flowers in Spring and the unforgettable sight of eagles soaring over the castle. Close to huge spectacular cork forest with picnic areas, swim in rock pools, dine beside tumbling streams in renowned restaurants. Try the tapas at Paco Pepe's bar only a couple of streets away. Climb up to the castle and pick figs in the ruins. Visit Ronda and see the spectacular architecture and gorge. Discover art on every corner in the nearby village of GenalGuacil. Local street markets to explore, take a boat trip to Ceuta or Tangiers in north Africa, or just to see the dolphins. Take a scenic drive to visit Sevilla, Jerez or Cadiz. Or, as many do, just slow down, relax and don't even leave the village.

Other Activities: water sports on the coast (25mins), windsurfing at Tarifa(90mins), beautiful towns and villages to explore like Ronda & GenalGuacil(40mins)

Gaucin paradise

We stayed for a week with another couple from Australia. Wow! What a village and what a lovely house . We relaxed as soon as we entered Ian's little gem. Great walks, great food, comfortable beds. Perfect!

Delightful house and beautiful town; we went with 4 young adults who all loved it to (but not a party town!)

Had a lovely week in the middle of beautiful village in a fantastic setting

  • 4 of 5

Gaucin is a beautiful village with fantastic views across the mountains towards Gibraltar, the sea and beyond to Africa. Ronda & Seville both make good day trips

Property very spacious &, well equipped and has been modernised sympathetically with authentic traditional features. Lovely main bedroom and terrace over small pool (absolute necessity for cooling off). Roof terrace with lovely views. Property in easy walking distance of all local restaurants & shops which is important given the byzantine one way system of narrow streets and parking issues.....once you're used to it though it all adds to the charm of the village! Very helpful english speaking house manager.

Relaxed, beautiful, authentic

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful property in a gorgeous and still authentic Spanish village. We had everything we needed in the house and it was very well decorated. Pool was pretty and refreshing. Loads of places to eat and drink in the village which is a stones throw from the house. Views in the village are stunning and it was lovely looking into the old castle from the house. Plenty of seating and crockery etc and Innes who manages the house was very helpful.

Exactly as described, this lovely village house will not disappoint. We have stayed in many properties in Spain over the past decade and I am sure this is up there with the very best available on the market. The larger than expected pool was a particularly pleasant surprise and a welcome refuge from the heat of the day on the roof terrace. Immaculately kept and maintained by the owners and their housekeeper, there was nothing missing in the way of equipment and facilities. Ian was very quick to respond to questions before our visit and the detailed "house book" was accurate and helpful in planning activities during our visit to beautiful Gaucin. I would unhesitatingly recommend this property to anybody.
