Villa Description

Full of character

Once part of a 17th Century olive mill this village house has been carefully and tastefully restored, entirely in keeping with its traditional Andaluz character.

Carefully and traditionally restored - with chestnut beamed ceilings, terracotta floors, old restored doors and hand-glazed local tiles - this property is full of character, simply but comfortably furnished in a homely, rustic style with kilim rugs and paintings by local artists.

Arranged on two floors with the living space downstairs and the bedrooms upstairs, it also has access to a a roof terrace on the floor above.

The antique front door opens to a cosy sitting room with a wood burning stove and beamed ceiling. Pastel colours are complimented by soft, indirect lighting.

There is a separate, arched dining area leading through to the well equipped kitchen. Beyond, the small internal patio (with a small splash pool) has a Moroccan tiled table for outdoor eating. A lovely spot to take a leisurely breakfast.

A welcoming house

Here you feel immediately at home. As one client said, "it was simply perfect for our needs"

The two bedrooms (one double, one twin bedded) are upstairs. Very pleasant rooms, they have lots of character and both have en-suite bathrooms (one with a bath tub with shower over, the other with a shower only)

The double also has a little terrace from which you can enjoy the glorious landscape all around.

Steep stairs take you up to the roof terrace which is totally private for sunbathing. A good place to relax with a drink too, admiring the fabulous views which extend from the top of the village (with the castle high above), across the roof tops and all the way to the Rock of Gibraltar and Morocco across the sea. It's quite a panorama!

One of two stylish village houses converted from a 17th century olive mill, these uninterrupted terrace views over the fig, lemon and orange trees to the sublime countryside beyond is the icing on the cake in this pretty and welcoming home.

Anyone fancy a coffee?

The house is only a few minutes walk away from shops, tapas bars and restaurants.

Situated in a traffic free street on the edge of Gaucín, the only rush-hour "noise" you will hear is from the neighbours passing by on their mules or donkeys, off to spend the day on their ‘fincas'.

Yet the house is only a few minutes walk away from shops, tapas bars, restaurants (ranging from wholesome peasant cooking to sophisticated ‘haute-cuisine') and the excellent municipal swimming pool and tennis court.

Gaucín is one of Spain's most beautiful pueblos blancos, spectacularly situated on a mountain ridge, 629 meters above sea level. It's surrounded by beautiful countryside so there's plenty of wonderful walking and wildlife. It has just about all the facilities you will need - small shops, a chemist, banks and, of course, several bars and restaurants.

And, as everywhere in Andalucía, more than its fair share of fiestas, traditional Saints days and processions, each an excuse for merrymaking and dancing.

It is also an ideal base for day trips to towns like Ronda, Jerez, Cádiz and Sevilla. There are delightful little villages to explore, Mediterranean beaches are half an hour's drive away; the Atlantic coast with its fine white sand and famous wind surfing is one and a half hours drive.

As one of our clients who stayed at the house said, "it was simply perfect for our needs".

Around and About

This is an excellent base from which to explore this delightful and very beautiful part of Andalucía.

Excursions

  • La Costa del Sol with its wealth of sandy beaches, sun, fun and nightlife is just 30 minutes away. Resort towns include Estepona (45 minutes) and glitzy, glamorous Marbella (under an hour).
  • Gibraltar, steeped in history, VAT free shops … and plenty of fish & chips is 1¼ hours away.
  • Tarifa on the southernmost point of Spain is 1½ hours from here. Looking directly across the Straits of Gibraltar to Morocco, Africa is so close you feel that you can almost touch it!
  • Beyond lie mile upon mile of magnificent white beaches on Spain's Atlantic coast, La Costa de la Luz.
  • A taste of Morocco perhaps? The fast boat from Tarifa to Tangiers takes 35 minutes, so you can be exploring the local souks in just a few hours. Fascinating and colourful, it really is a different world.
  • Spain's unique sherry wine region (Jerez and Sanlúcar), is well worth a visit, enhanced no doubt by stopping at one or two of the famous bodegas along the way! Jerez de la Frontera is 2 hours.
  • Cádiz (2¼ hours) continues to evoke the romance, intrigue and mystery of centuries of trade (some legal, some not so) between Europe, Africa and the Americas.
  • One of Europe's most important wetland reserves and bird sanctuaries, the Doñana National Park, is a popular attraction for nature lovers (4 hours). Its enormous variety of bird species include everything from flamingos to imperial eagles.
  • A beautiful road winds over the spectacular mountains to Ronda (45 minutes), with its spectacular gorge and Spain's oldest bullring, Hemmingway’s favourite town in all of Spain.
  • Sevilla takes 2½ hours. It is impossible not to be captivated by its exuberant atmosphere: stylish, confident, ancient and proud, yet also convivial, intimate and fun-loving. If you don't know what alegría means, Sevilla is the place to learn!
  • The fantastic railway between Algeciras on the coast and Ronda, to the north, stops at the little pueblo of Colmenar (20 minutes away). One of Europe’s great short railway journeys, running through landscapes which offer constantly plunging and spectacular views, this is a remarkable and wonderful way to see some of Andalucía's best and most dramatic countryside.
  • There are a plethora of beautiful white villages and hilltop towns to explore and enjoy in the magnificent countryside of the Serranía de Ronda – Jimena de la Frontera, Casares and Genalguacil to name but a few.
  • Nearby National Parks include the fabulous Los Alcornocales Natural Park and the Grazalema National Park, one of the most beautiful tracks of mountain anywhere in Europe. Jagged peaks, gorges, chasms, faults and caves, underground rivers and deep canyons are interspersed, here and there, by some of the prettiest villages in Spain, Grazalema, Zahara, Setenil and the other famous "pueblos blancos".
  • Córdoba and Granada are both 3 hours drive from here

Activities

  • Guided and self-guided walking, horse riding, mountain biking and yoga are all available in or around Gaucín.
  • The village has an excellent municipal swimming pool, a tennis court and gymnasium.
  • For golf enthusiasts, there are at least 25 top quality golf courses (including Finca Cortesin, Valderrama, Sotogrande, and San Roque) within 50 minutes drive.
  • On the coast (both the Costa del Sol and the Costa de la Luz) there’s every beach pursuit imaginable, from sailing and windsurfing, diving and snorkelling to whale and dolphin watching.
