We have had a lovely restful time staying here. We have enjoyed watching the sun go down over the hill with a glass of wine in hand. Jeff & Fiona. Sept 2012

Our photos of both the comfortable casa and the picture perfect pueblo will remind us later of how much we enjoyed our stay here in Gaucin. Bill and Sue. KIngston, Ontario. April 2012

Great short break

  • 5 of 5

What a great little place - both the town of Gaucin and the accomodation. Perfect for our needs (2 adults and one teenager). Accomodation - spot on. V friendly and helpful agent who met us and showed us in and around. Views are stunning.

Definitely need a small car to tour round the white villages, but all good fun.

Blessed by good weather :-)

Ear plugs may be needed for Carlos the Cockrell, but all added to the charm.

Experienced a lot of Spain in only a few days, that I'm sure you'd never get by staying on the coast!

Next time I'm taking my bike, as some of the roads around the area were great to drive on but probably even better to tackle on two wheels!

Thanks so much - a brilliant short break. Damian, Emma & Tom

A very comfortable stay

  • 4 of 5

As a couple Casa dio Del Sol met our requirements exactly and the covered terrace was a bonus given the variable weather. We would have been happier if we had been in direct contact with the owners but the local agent was very helpful and the instructions to make contact were clear (except for road name changes!).

With a comfortable bed, well equipped kitchen and all the personal touches of a someone's home plus fantastic views towards the med we had a very pleasant stay. The only minor niggle was the small bath towels.

This was our second visit to Gaucin which is a friendly and interesting village in its own right as well as being within easy travelling distance of the coast and many of Andalucía's highlights.
