Set in the vibrant and romantic hilltop village of Gaucin, Casa Mosaica is a stunning and very unusual Moorish-style property where you can enjoy peaceful surroundings, a simple lifestyle and incredible views towards Africa. An ideal place for families, couples or singles.
Gaucin is one of the famous ‘pueblos blancos’ of Andalucia, a pretty traditional village where donkeys still work and local festivities are enthusiastically celebrated. And in its midst, perfectly placed yet hidden behind an anonymous façade, is Casa Mosaica, a haven of tranquillity. The apartment is on the ground floor of the house and, as you would expect from the name, it is filled throughout with beautiful mosaics, not to mention antique furniture, Moroccan rugs and lanterns, all of which create a warm, welcoming and unique character. This is the perfect place in which to escape and relax while you explore sunny Andalucia.
The house is situated on the Ronda side of the village, with shops, restaurants and charming tapas bars within easy reach. Gaucin is one of the most spectacularly beautiful mountain villages of Andalucia, characterised by white houses, craggy peaks, vultures and eagles overhead and miles of sun dried hills. To the north are the weathered limestone formations of the Serrania de Ronda, and to the south you can see across the Rio Genal valley to Gibraltar and across the Straights into the Rif Mountains of North Africa. Once a major Roman settlement, Gaucin has a fascinating history, and nowadays it is a sanctuary for artists, botanists, bird watchers, hikers and horse riders alike. There are several National Parks nearby, including "Los Alcornocales", the largest and oldest cork forest in Europe, and there are lots of wonderful towns and cities to visit, from Sevilla and Ronda to Granada, Jerez and even Tangier.
The house is 153km from Malaga and its international airport. Gibraltar is also not far away.

The ground floor apartment has two bedrooms – a master bedroom (double king size bed) with en-suite "polished plaster" bathroom and a second bedroom with twin beds (or zip and link to create a super king size bed) with en-suite shower room. A baby cot and high chair are also available for guests with a young child. Good quality linens and guests soap provided. There is a private entrance from the street and inside you will find a library with hand painted Moroccan double doors that lead into the bright, open-plan kitchen/dining-room and sitting area. The kitchen is well equipped and the sitting room is kitted out with wifi, TV with HDMI cables and European channels, audio speakers, a DVD player and a selection of DVDs. There are 2 friendly house cats on the property, which might make it unsuitable for anyone with a severe cat allergy.
The bedrooms have doors opening out onto the swimming pool terrace and there are also doors from the sitting area to the walled garden. There is a large shady eating area beside the pool, as well as a sofa and chairs in the garden, and the scented garden, shared with the casita, is full of exotic palms, jasmine, bougainvillea, mosaics and fountains. The swimming pool, set within its own courtyard, is perfection after a hot, dusty day. Please note that the swimming pool is shared with a maximum of 2 guests of the casita which is also on site.
