Summer Season 2018 in La Casita Mosaica is reduced by 15% to €970 per week rather then €1,150. May 25th - 27th July 2018.
Set in the vibrant and romantic hilltop village of Gaucin, Casita Mosaica is a romantic little hideaway for two within a stunning and very unusual Moorish-style property. Come and enjoy peaceful surroundings, a simple lifestyle and incredible views.
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 Casita Mosaica, a stunning space which was architecturally inspired by a tower in the Kasbah of Tangier. As you would expect, the casita is filled throughout with beautiful mosaics, not to mention antique furniture, Moroccan rugs and lanterns, and it also boasts stunning views towards Cortes de la Frontera and the Sierra in one direction and the tiled roofs of Gaucin in the other. This is a truly magical spot.
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 Casita is made just for two, with a king size bedroom and a sunny bathroom. The entrance hall has a stunning mosaic floor and opens into a double height kitchen and dining room and there is a comfortable sitting room with a wood-burning stove, fast wireless connection, TV with some European channels, audio speakers, a DVD player and a selection of DVDs. There are 2 friendly house cats on the property who sometimes like to come and say hello, which might make it unsuitable for anyone with a severe cat allergy.
The Casita has its own entrance from the street, a private patio garden with a banquette, table and chairs and a terrace at the top with a comfortable day bed, a small kitchen and a drinks fridge. The scented garden, shared with the ground floor apartment, is full of exotic palms, jasmine, bougainvillea, mosaics and fountains, and the swimming pool, set within its own courtyard, is perfection after a hot, dusty day. Please note that the swimming pool is shared with guests from the two bedroom apartment which is part of the Casa on site.
