Overview

Here’s a very enjoyable house with three en suite bedrooms, restored and refurbished in 2013 by a Spanish architect with a taste for the antique in style. He was equally aware that facilities have to be modern, and that's what you'll find here.

It’s conveniently central in Gaucin, making it a good choice for those who like to have shops and restaurants close by, although thanks to the way the Gaucin is built on the hillside, the village ends at this street and the view is uninterrupted.

The house is constructed on three levels:

At street level is the main living accommodation, lounge and kitchen and a shaded terrace whose views over the Mediterranean countryside are a very pretty sight indeed.

Upstairs are three en suite bedrooms and another terrace with an even better view.

Downstairs is a timber-decked pool garden.

Let's give you an overview and more on these three floors.

First of all, the setting: the property is positioned in a side street, below the road used by cars threading their way through the old village, and apart from Bedroom 3, all the accommodation and its terraces face the countryside and hills, so it’s very quiet.

There’s a garage for a small car (a rare feature for an Andalucian village), and if you have more than one car, you can park easily (and for free) just outside the house.

Just seconds away is arguably Gaucin’s best restaurant.

Inside, smooth old tiles underfoot lead you through a hallway to the main living area and kitchen which opens directly to a terrace.

We thought the furnishings an aesthetic blend of antique and new: old flooring and wood beams, chandeliers, colourful contemporary artwork and a comfy white sofa. We found the leather sofa more pleasing on the eye than easy to relax on, and one of us liked the timber terrace dining table while the other would have preferred a more conventional one, but these were small quibbles in a very good quality house.

Gaucin’s altitude saves it from the summer heat that can afflict the coast, so the air con’s rarely necessary.

The three en suite bedrooms upstairs are wood-beamed and have that alluring aroma one associates with historic residences. Their en suite shower rooms are imaginatively decorated in different colours and each bedroom has a hairdryer.

One of the bedrooms is positioned at the street-side of the house (you may hear some passing traffic), where it is cheerfully illuminated.

The furnished terrace on the same floor as the bedrooms has terrific views. It faces west, so you catch the last rays at sunset.

Stairs go down to the rear of the property, where a wood deck surrounds the small swimming pool. It’s a welcome feature from spring to autumn, but do bear in mind it’s not that big and this is a village house with neighbours, so in theory the pool garden could be overlooked. For pool holidays in complete privacy one should opt for a country villa.

Four sunloungers are provided and the western aspect provides sun and shade according to the time of day.

Lighting guides you along the wood deck for night swims and the pool has underwater lighting, too.

For shopping, café-bars and restaurants (the Gaucin Guide we send before you travel has our recommendations) you don’t need to drive, while beaches are 30 minutes down the road and Ronda an interesting 45-minute drive away through the mountains.

Christine | September | 2016

Another great holiday, RD65 thankyou! Brett, Esther and Luisa were a great help and the property and Gaucin were great. Many thanks

Alan | May | 2016

Very nice layout of the property. Great space. Interesting rustic décor. Location was excellent. Garage space useful (we had 3 motorcycles). Only issue was the smell from drains to the front of the property meant front window had to be closed at all times."

Rustical Update

We have been informed that there was some work in the village drainage system and this could have affected the street with some smell of drains. Only one bedroom faces to the from of the property; kitchen, living etc...all face the countryside.

Carol | September | 2015

Charming home in central location in a lovely village with a superb view. Fully equipped, clean & well presented. Loved it as soon as we entered & our enthusiasm grew with each room we entered. The balconies and pool area were delightful. We felt relaxed & comfortable. Bret was there to welcome us - he was friendly & helpful throughout. We did not have a car so had a pre-arranged taxi from Malaga airport at Euro130. Two good circular walks from the door. We walked to the station at El Colmenar & a pre-arranged taxi took us back for Euro 25. We did a walk in Jimena De La Frontera and walked to Benarraba & back. Impressed by Rustic Travel's efficiency & service."

Barry | April | 2015

Fantastic views and good quality property. There were a few niggles with the fixtures and fittings but mostly the property was of a high standard and the location on the edge of the village but still close to bars and restaurants was good. Only a few negative comments really and I imagine they have been said before. Access with a car or a larger vehicle is very poor. I would suggest telling people to park on the roadside close to the viaduct on the road out of the village towards Ronda. Its only a short walk from there to the property. The condition of the road up from the coast is very poor and of course difficult to drive in the dark. There is a comment about this in the information provided but I would make it clearer. Internet is good but a better selection of TV channels would be very welcome, especially in late and early season when outdoor living is more restricted. Hope that helps! Barry"

Linda | April | 2015

We had a lovely week at this property. It is well furnished & comfortable. We had expected it to be a little quieter, but local dogs & mating bull frogs were something of a challenge in the evenings, particularly to my husband. Despite these quibbles it is a lovely area to visit & Gaucin itself is a lovely friendly village . The booking process was very easy & the information provided by you prior to our trip was excellent."

Gideon | March | 2015

It's a lovely house, and we spent a very happy week there. The house is very nicely and distinctively appointed, and the terrace at the back is lovely at all times of day, with beautiful views and a surprising sense of privacy - also at the pool, which feels quite enclosed. At night there is an entertaining chorus of frogs and insects, congregating around pools and water tanks among the patchwork of back gardens. Gaucin itself is a great place to spend a few days, with relatively easy access to both Ronda (we went by train) and the coast. Hiring a car is a necessity, really. Overall we were really pleased to have chosen this cottage: as a family of four, with kids of 10 and 5, it suited us really well. We'd certainly like to return."

Phil | July | 2014

The pre booking process and dealing with your staff was great. The website is excellent with great content. Also - the travel info, descriptions and other tips were really useful on arrival. We found the villa to be exactly as described and it was a really lovely place to stay for two weeks. Gaucin is lovely and very much felt like a local Spanish village, and not too full of tourists. Which was our preference! I'd like to mention Josefi the housekeeper. She was there on our arrival and answered any queries we had via text or Whatsapp (phone messaging over internet) promptly. Not only did she help out with issues (aircon not working in one bedroom) but she also provided advice on places to visit or how to get there. She was great. Anyway - thanks again, and I'm sure we'd recommend you to others."

Max | April | 2014

I was impressed by Rustical Travels efficient organisation and communication with us before departure . The meet and greet service was also very good. We also thought the Villa we rented was excellent and would rent again in the future when we return to Gaucin. We would also look to,rent other properties in other locations from Rustical and would recommend Rustical to our friends based on our experience. Thanks."

Meryl | March | 2014

The house was wonderful and exactly as pictured. Josefi was very pleasant and professional in checking us in. However, your directions to the property were terrible. You sent us to a gas station where there was no payphone for us to call Josefi. The person at the gas station couldn't tell us where there was a payphone, nor did he offer his phone for our use. We tried a restaurant across the street with the same result, but the woman there did direct us to some place in town where she thought there might be a phone. It took a long time and was a lot of trouble for us to find a telephone. Josefi told us that other people came directly to the house with clear directions. This is our only complaint, but it was a major one on the day of our arrival."

Rustical Update

For this property we have now arranged for clients to go direct to the house, where the keyholder will meet them. We strongly recommend clients to bring an operable mobile phone on holiday with them.
