One-Off Feature

Set in the vibrant and romantic hilltop village of Gaucin in Andalucia, 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 looking for a peaceful and relaxing holiday in Spain.

General Info

Gaucín is one of the famous ‘pueblos blancos’ of Andalucia, an extremely pretty traditional, friendly village where donkeys are still working and local festivities enthusiastically celebrated. And in its midst, perfectly placed in the village yet hidden behind an anonymous façade, is the very stylish Casa Mosaica, a haven of tranquillity, set in a stunning exotic garden. Designed and owned by a decorator who specialises in mosaics, the apartment is on the ground floor of the house and, as you would expect, it is filled throughout with beautiful hand-made mosaics, not to mention antique furniture, Moroccan rugs and lanterns, all of which create a stunning, warm, welcoming and unique character. This is the perfect place in which to escape and relax while you enjoy the many delights of Gaucín and discover sunny Andalucia or an ideally comfortable base to return to after hiking and exploring the local area in low season.

The Area Surrounding The Property / Accommodation

Casa Mosaica is situated on the Ronda side of the village, with shops, excellent restaurants and charming tapas bars within a short walk. Gaucín 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 beautiful Rio Genal valley to Gibraltar and across the Straights into the Rif Mountains of North Africa. Once a major Roman settlement, Gaucín has a fascinating history, and nowadays it is a traditional Andalucian village and sanctuary for artists, botanists, bird watchers, hikers and horse riders alike. Gaucín has a lot to offer various types of holiday makers; the coast and it’s nearest beach, beach-clubs, golf courses and markets ect. is only a short drive away while up in the mountains there are several National Parks nearby, including "Los Alcornocales", the largest and oldest cork forest in Europe, and many wonderful towns, villages and cities to visit, from Ronda, Jerez, Arcos de La Frontera and Sevilla and even the costal city of Tangier in Morocco is accessible for a day trip.
