Villa with Pool and Superb Views to Coast

Overview

Property

Updated: 20-Sep-2016
Villa near Gaucin, Ronda Area, Andalucia - On the Edge of Village but with Easy Access to it

A recently built traditional rustic style 3 storey village house situated on the edge of the hilltop “white village” of Gaucin, perched over 600m above sea level, with its narrow winding streets and white houses. The village has several excellent restaurants and tapas bars, as well as small supermarkets, banks and other shops. The property, only 4 minutes walk from the village centre, enjoys stunning views over the valleys below across to the Mediterranean, Gibraltar and Moroccan hills and yet is easily accessible from Malaga, Jerez and Gibraltar airports. It has full central heating, double glazing and a log fireplace, making it also a perfect winter retreat. It is tastefully furnished to a high standard by its English owners and has an open living/dining and kitchen area with adjoining covered terrace, three bedrooms (sleeps up to 6 people), 2 bath/shower rooms, and a secluded private terrace overlooking the swimming pool, (8m x 4m) shared with 2 adjoining properties.

About the Owner

We live in England but love Spain and spend our main holiday and other short breaks each year at Casa Mirador, our holiday home in Gaucin, often then spending a few more days exploring and discovering some other part of Spain.

Fantastic villa, great location near to wonderful village

  • 5 of 5

We have just got back from a wonderful week in Gaucin which was very relaxing. The villa was perfect with everything that we needed to hand. We felt at home as soon as we walked in. The views were just breath taking and there was always a cooling breeze as the temperatures got to 37c on one of the days. Four adults and 1 child stayed here and there was plenty of room. The decor was great, very simple which added to the charm of the location. The location is great with a short walk to the village and all the lovely restaurants and bars. We also had a fantastic meal at the nearby La Fructuosa restaurant which is only the shortest of walks away. Gaucin is a really pretty village which has managed to keep its charm. You can spend hours walking around all the tiny streets and stopping at the bars for a coffee or beer. The only trouble was that a week was not long enough as there are so many places to visit. We will be returning.

The perfect place to relax...and enjoy the view

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Gaucin and it was more enjoyable than the first, not least because of our accommodation. The villa is spacious, spread over three floors and with lots of outdoors space, including shaded areas to relax, a bonus given that we have two children. We very quickly settled in and the property contained everything we needed to feel 'home from home'. I can't imagine how anyone could ever tire of the view: 'spectacular' is an over used word but entirely appropriate here. We were fortunate to time our visit with a full moon, providing a magical late night view, all the way to the coast. The owner was incredibly helpful before and after we made our booking and we were met in the village by Pam who helped us navigate the narrow streets and introduced us to the property. Although the pool is shared with two other adjacent properties we seemed to have it ourselves for much of the time. A perfect place for a relaxing holiday.

Location

From the Owner

We wanted to get away from the coast and chose Gaucin, one of the Adalucian white villages, because of its unique position, perched on the hillside approx 2500 feet above sea level looking out over the Genal Valley to Gibraltar and the Mediterranean. We have furnished it as our holiday home but enjoy sharing it with our guests,who send us very appreciative comments and many rebook and look forward to their next visit. The village is a delight with its mix of shops and Spanish and ex pat owned bars and restaurants and is still totally Spanish, but has a good number of residents, from UK and other parts of Europe, many of whom have become friends.

Further Details:

The village’s whitewashed houses and terracotta roofs, spread across the hillside, mark it as one of the pueblo’s Blanco or white villages of Andalucia.

The village is surrounded by beautiful countryside and the area is of particular interest to those who enjoy walking and bird watching and is on the main migratory route from Europe to North Africa.

Facilities

From the Owner

Unique benefits of the property - We had been looking for the right property in Gaucin for a very long time before we saw Casa Mirador. As soon as we walked into the living area and saw the views across to Crestelina mountain and the sea, we knew straight away that it was for us and we still get the same thrill each time we visit, as do our guests.
