Our property in Gaucin is a recently renovated & upgraded Townhouse, (less than 5 years) divided into two apartments and is approximately 150m from the main square where there are several bars and restaurants. We have been letting the top appartment of this town house since 2018 and have used the closed period over Covid to refresh the property, particularly the outside terraces. When we are not letting out to guests, this is our "Place in the Sun", which hopefully is apparent.

The space
The top floor comprises a very large living area with hi-quality wood burning stove, ample seating and entrance via 2.5m bi-fold doors onto the top terrace. The terrace is ideal for sunbathing, has a barbecue and fantastic views over to El Hacho, one of the main peaks in the local area, which is easily accessible by foot from the property, (c. 3 hours return). Wi-fi internet access is available and there is a TV with a Netflix account, a DVD player with selection of DVDs and Bluetooth Sony (bluetooth) personal audio system. The top floor also includes a fitted shower room with sink and toilet.

The lower floor accommodates a kitchen/dining area containing all necessary white goods and electrical appliances, which leads onto a second, covered balcony, equipped with a small table and four chairs where meals may be eaten outside. At the rear of this floor there are two bedrooms, one king and one twin - and a fitted bathroom with bath, incorporated shower unit, sink and toilet. Hot and cold air conditioning has recently been installed on the first floor, making the apartment suitable for year-round letting.

Where you’ll be

Gaucín, Andalucía, Spain

Astronomy - Cloud permitting, the night sky is spectacular in this area. Depending on the season, there are good viewing opportunities for the moon and the 5 visible planets - a small telescope is provided to observe the moon, when visible. (Note: The telescope is heavy and use should be supervised by an adult).
Beaches - The nearest beaches on the Spanish coast, some of them with blue ribbon status are a 40 minute drive from the village.
Bird Watching - Gaucin lies on the migratory route from Africa to Europe. Many migrant populations pass straight through the village. There are also several birds of prey in the local area. The village castle provides an ideal viewing position.
Day trips to Africa - for the truly adventurous there are day trips to Tangiers (Morocco), available from Tarifa. (The coast around Tarifa is also a world class kite surfing area).
Festivals and Fiestas - A number of festivals take place during the year including the Semana Santa (holy week) processions and the running of the bull on Easter Sunday.The feria in August has a fairground, music and dancing.
Gibraltar - And all of its attractions are just over an hour's drive away.
Riding - There are two riding centres close by.
The Pueblo Blancos - there are several beautiful villages nearby and Ronda, one of the main centres of historical importance in the area, is a 40 minute drive away.
Swimming- There is a first class, open air municipal pool in the village, which is open in the summer months. Alternatively, the river running through the valley is ideal for swimming, and fishing.
Train Journeys - The train station for Gaucin is in the nearby village of El Colmenar. This station links up with the main Spanish network and day trips to Seville and Granada are possible.
Walks - Local walks are organised and advertised in the village. Alternatively, for the more independently minded there are numerous walks, of varying difficulty, available on the ViewRanger App, downloadable on your phone. Small charges apply.

I’m in my sixties and British and after retiring from the corporate world 5 years ago, apart from running a couple of holiday cottages, I have a small coaching and counselling practice working in business and with private clients. In my spare time I love to travel with my wife Jessica to places that we haven’t had the chance to visit yet. We have three children and enjoy spending time with the wider family. I’m also a bit mad on sport - particularly football and cricket, but I also love the arts and philosophy. I’m also very fond of my black cat - Loki!

During your stay

We offer a warm welcome to all potential guests who may consider visiting our property. We first visited Gaucin many years ago with our children and bought the property in December 2015, after falling in love with the area all over again! It has taken a while but we have upgraded the current property building on our experience setting up a highly successful holiday cottage (“The Retreat”) in Purbeck, Dorset with Blue Chip Holidays..

We currently live in the UK, but employ a local property manager who will provide access to the property and answer any questions you might have about the apartment and the local area. Luisa speaks Spanish, English and German.
