Stairs from the living room lead to a second twin bedded room and to two terraces that have views to die for. The terraces are ideal for sunbathing or for relaxation with a glass of wine watching the beautiful sunsets.
The top terrace is accessed via a second set of stairs and offers a 360 panoramic view over the village and surrounding countryside.
The village is perched 630 metres (2,000 feet) up on a mountain balcony against the backdrop of the Serrania de Ronda mountain range, and window to the famous town of Ronda. From the many miradors within the town there are terrific views down the Genal River Valley to the Mediterranean coast, Gibraltar and the Rif mountains of Morocco. Here, in this unspoilt country village of only 2,000 inhabitants, there is a small but well established international community ensuring that all year round there is a lively and varied range of tapas bars, cafes (including an internet cafe), restaurants (mainly April - October) and other essential services (ATM, pharmacy, post office, market, shops, supermarkets, taxis, public swimming pool in summer etc).
There is also a railway station, on the scenic line from Algeciras to Ronda and beyond, just a 10 minute drive from Gaucin.
No Smoking, no pets. It is also unsuitable for very young children due to the nature of the stair cases, (step stone steps in places). deposit required, minimum 2 nights stay.
We stayed in Bob and Dawn's flat during 5 nights in August. We wanted to discover Andalusia from its villages and to be in a quiet and beautiful place.
It was PERFECT !
The house is cosy and beautiful. Everything is thought for a short or a long stay and the three terraces are incredible. The view, the calm....fantastic...there is no other words.
Gaucin is a beautiful village with all the accomodations you need (market, restaurants). You can easily visit Andalusia, villages, beaches.
Moreover Bob and Dawn are perfect hosts, welcoming and always ready to advise you what to do. Thanks very much for this stay.
We hardly recommend this place !
The four of us ( 2 couples) spent 4 days in Gaucin at Bob and Dawn's WONDERFUL place.
It is simply heaven.
More than an appartment the place is more like a penthouse build in the typical white wash architecture of the village. Bob and Dawn reserve an independant entire part of their house to their guests. You will discover your appartment after some climbing through the exotic plants and flowers that have invaded the house ! Besides the incredibly romantic bedrooms the charm of the place is also its 3 terrasses that willl give you a nice view on the entire village ( pick your choice following the hour of the day!).
I have to say that Bob and Dawn were both very welcoming, and also very discrete. They just kind of popped up whenever we needed them!
The village of Gaucin is a gorgeous typical village hidden in the very south of spain mountains ( if you arrive at the airport of Malaga, it is like 1hrand a half drive, but very easy to find!)
The view from the top of the village is simply astonishing.
Even though the place is very preserved, it has all the accomodations you could hope such as cafes, restaurants, grocery store, a wonderful public swimming pool.
I would recommand it to anyone : bunch of friends or families ( besides small kids because of the stairs) !
This is a beautiful and peaceful apartment with a great location. We thoroughly enjoyed the terraces, unique architecture, and the carefully chosen decor. Bob's message response time was really fast. Dawn was very friendly, accommodating, and helpful. We would definitely come back!
Gaucin is charming and authentic, and so are the lovely hosts of this unique home. Many thanks to Bob and Dawn for providing an artistic, comfortable and very clean spot in a beautiful location. Thanks for making us feel welcome and giving us help getting situated. Would come back in a heartbeat! You can believe the pictures. It's really lovely.
The apartment in Gaucin is absolutely adorable. It was a bit cold outside when we were there so we were able to make use of the wood burning stove. The kitchen has everything you need and the outdoor terraces have beautiful views. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Gaucin is a wonderful little town.
About the Host, Bob
Hello and a warm welcome from Bob and Dawn to sunny Spain. We are both in our mid fifties and decided to move to Spain in 2006 after our first visit. Before we moved we owned a gym/fitness business which Bob managed whilst Dawn worked as a music Librarian.
Bob is an avid bird-watcher and our Bed and Breakfast business is based around his new tour-guiding vocation.
We fell in love with the beautiful village of Gaucin during our visit in 2006. The unique and special ambiance of this 'pueblo blanco' is quite enchanting, the evenings are magical as you sit admiring the wonderful sunsets and moon-lit skies from our terraces. The scenery is stunning and views down to the coast are magnificent. We moved here in 2009 after spending nearly 3 years renovating our house and the apartments, we haven't looked back since. We love it here and you will too, evreryone is so friendly and welcoming and village is so beautiful, you will take hundreds of photographs during your visit.
We also base our successful bird tour company (wingspan bird tours) from our home in Gaucin where we offer day tours to give you a unique opportunity to sample the 'real Spain' and enjoy a wonderful day watching wildlife.
