About the property

House in Gaucin, Ronda, Spain - Charming Country House, Peaceful, Secluded Location Special 2nd Week And Couples Rates

Beautifully restored old blacksmith's forge that has been in the same family for generations. Reached by a short track a few kilometres from Gaucin the property is surrounded by unspoilt countryside where goats, sheep and cattle still graze. The large, securely fenced, private pool is set in natural gardens amid fragrant mandarin trees. The house has been thoughtfully restored using traditional local materials and is decorated with a range of antiques and country artefacts. this rustic farmhouse is a secluded get-away set in beautiful countryside. Nature-lovers, birdwatchers & walkers may be drawn to the area in the cooler months. In the summer, the private pool & beautiful countryside around provide the perfect ways to relax. The thick stone walls keep the cottage cool throughout the summer months & there is central heating & an open log fire for the cooler seasons. Free Wifi internet connection available.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Old Forge.

Wonderful place to recharge your batteries: peace and quiet, beautiful weather, views and scenery, handy for days out, pretty villages to explore and all the people are very friendly and welcoming.

The villa was clean and well-maintained. The pool was great with a great bbq area.

We would have no hesitation in recommending The Old Forge to anyone looking for a great spot in the Spanish sun.

Beautiful and comfortable a joy to stay

  • 5 of 5

The quiet and peacefulness of this finca is hard to underestimate. The sunset views from the terrace are stunning and the place is not overlooked and you overlook only the countryside and mountains. The rooms are all comfortable and large (especially the suite upstairs). The finca is well equipped and the owners do not take away the left over herbs spices etc from other guests. The pool and pool area are lovely. There are also plenty of shaded areas for eating and drinking outside. You have eagles flying over you as well as the hoots of owls in the evening. Gaucin is an easy 10 minute drive away and is a lovely village to wander around and eat and drink (though I would particularly recommend L'Estacion in nearby San Pablo Buciente, just down the hill, to eat). The finca has BBC, ITV and C4 so I was able to watch England being beaten by Wales (sob). The property manager Ines could not have been more helpful. We were there for 2 weeks and there was a complete change of linen and a thorough clean at the end of the first week. All in all great.
