Overview

About the property

7 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, spectacular views and amazing private pool

Nestled in the mountains near the pueblo blanco of Gaucin and only 1.5 hours from Malaga airport, Finca Avedin is an unbeatable destination for relaxing with family and friends.

A short walk from the pretty village of Gaucin, Finca Avedin is set within its own 15 acre estate of cork forest, woodland and olive and almond groves. It's a peaceful setting that gives you a feeling of calm as soon as you arrive. On the slopes of the Serrania de Ronda in the Andalucian mountains, it offers fantastic opportunities for walking, birdwatching and other outdoor pursuits and, if you're an art lover, you're only moments from the renowned art studios of Gaucín. Whether you're relaxing by the pool, discovering secret corners of the landscaped gardens or admiring the fabulous views, you'll truly feel like you've found your own Spanish oasis.

A traditional farmhouse, Finca Avedin has been lovingly restored to create a wonderful country home. Wrapped around a large central courtyard, you'll find Moorish-influenced rooms with whitewashed walls, exquisite furnishings and carefully-chosen antiques as well as all the modern comforts you'd expect. The villa is spacious yet cosy, luxurious yet comfortable and has been described as having an amazing energy. With seven en-suite bedrooms and extensive indoor and outdoor living space, Finca Avedin offers you a gorgeous home away from home.

Our seven ensuite bedrooms are spacious and beautifully furnished with bedlinen, towels, hairdryers and toiletries provided. The beds in bedrooms 2, 4, 6 and 7 can be separated to provide two single beds or joined together to create super comfortable zip and link King beds. There is a also a small casita with its own kitchenette and ensuite shower room which provides two additional single beds. The casita is available on request at an additional cost.

Set against the backdrop of the majestic mountains and with the scent of orange and lemon in the air, there's no better place to recharge your batteries. Families and groups of friends can enjoy the spectacular infinity pool, immaculate gardens and nature on your doorstep. You won't want to leave....

A wonderful villa to end our journey in Andalusia

  • 4 of 5

The villa was more than we hoped it would be. The location is nice and quiet, the view is stunning and the rooms are wonderful. The villa was clean and very well maintained, Victoria, the manager, is very kind and our children liked her a lot.

We have visited Gaucin a few times, enjoyed tapas, especially the tapas at Zorro, we've been to Ronda, beautiful, and stayed in the villa for the most days, just relaxing.

We have had a few colder days and then the villa is a bit difficult to heat and the pool is cold, but when the sun shines it al warms quickly.

I would recommend a stay at this villa, our children, 2 and 4 years old, loved the stay in the villa and the pool, and because the pool is fenced, this villa was ideal for us.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

The house, grounds, & pool are fantastic, beautiful and immaculately maintained. The staff is incredibly attentive and fantastic in every way. Everything is well decorated, clean, comfortable -- perfect. It's really like being home with a great collection of books to choose from!

We stayed in a "full" house of 12 (including two teens and two kids) but there was so much room in the living areas, outdoor seating, terraces, patios, courtyard & pool that there was always an area where you were able to be completely alone with your book and your rioja/sangria,

Every bedroom and bath was in great shape and condition and the kitchen was a dream to cook breakfasts, a few lunches and a couple of dinners for the whole group. Several markets are close by in Gaucin and will likely have everything that you will likely need. Further away are some other larger markets that will have imported foods if you must have something from another country's staples.

We were told that the breezy and windy conditions for a few days of our stay were uncommon but even without them, I could not ever imagine needing air conditioning as the nights were beautiful with plenty of fresh air throughout the house and its numerous windows and screen doors. The stars over the pool were amazing (even with a full moon – 2013’s Super Moon -- for part of our stay)!

We spent a few days just exploring Gaucin (the castle, the park/mirador and the shops and artists) and spending time in Gaucin was a delight. Day trips to Ronda and the beach were easy too. We had arrived from a couple of nights in Grenada and departed to a couple of nights in Sevilla and Malaga but all of them would have also been able to have been day trips if you had wanted to put in the driving time by car.

Certainly try the great restaurants nearby too, we tried to find smaller more local haunts - in Gaucin, we enjoyed La Parrilla del Pilar, Casa Antonia, and La Taberna Del Zorro, and we also found, on A-369 near Benarraba, Meson Mirador de la Sierra which held a great family run restaurant - You won't get to enjoy Spain reaching the Confederations Cup Final with them but I'm sure there will be some futbol on their televisions to enjoy!)

As the last reviewer said, the website pics & descriptions don't even do justice - Finca Avedin is even better in real life. We'd love to be back now!

Perfect Villa

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful. All the bedrooms are fantastic as are the bathrooms. It is very clean and comfortable. We love this house and have been three years in a row and hope to go every summer. Finca Avedin is even better in the flesh than its website description.

It is great for kids aswell as the pool area has a large door which can be closed securely.

The staff are friendly and attentive.

Perfect holiday rental!
