For those who want a taste of the real Spain, Casa Muneca in Gaucin is an ideal property. Good value, very well equipped, comfortable, with wonderful views from the sun terrace across to the mountains and to Gibraltar to the south west. It is very well situated in a quiet lane (traffic free) within a very short walking distance of good restaurants, taverns and a small supermarket. Free parking is within a short walk. Gaucin is a typical Spanish/Moorish whitewashed village and well placed for visiting (by car) Ronda, Seville, Jerez, Cadiz and Gibraltar as well as the coast which is about 40 minutes drive. We would recommend this property.
Casa Muneca was delightful, well equipped kitchen, bath, nice terrace and view. Easy to get to market, restaurants. Perfect vacation getaway!
Perched near the top of a hillside overlooking a very deep valley, Casa Muneca offers super views over mountains, valleys, forest and farmland. The facilities of the house are first class, wanting for very little in a village that offers all you need for a rural holiday. If there's one piece of advice - in hiring a car, make sure its small as the streets in Gaucin are not generous
Casa Muneca sits at one of the highest points in Gaucin so provides a spectacular view down to Gibraltar and across to the Rif mountains of Morocco. The terrace receives sun from noon hour on so it is a lovely spot to relax and enjoy a snack or a meal. The house is well appointed with everything needed for a comfortable stay. There is a well stocked collection of DVDs, books, and CDs, and the kitchen has a full range of everything that might be needed for meal preparation. There is an excellent food store close by and many good restaurants within a five minute walk. The local manager of the house, Agustina, is welcoming, friendly, and always available to help with anything guests might need. Nights can be cool but there is good heating from a gas heater, a fireplace, and a small electric heater in the bedroom. Hikers and birdwatchers will be able to enjoy countless trails and many migratory birds as well as local eagles and raptors.
This was the second time we had stayed in Casa Muneca in the last 3 years. The house is in the center of the village in a quiet location. It is clean, comfortable and nicely furnished. We could see that a number of small improvements had been made which added even more to our very enjoyable stay. There are stunning views towards Gibraltar and Africa from the terrace, sun loungers to sunbath and relax on, the comfortable bed, the various artefacts add even further to the unique character of the house. The village is friendly with many bars and several good restaurants. In the house there were guide books about local walks which we found very useful, a wide selection of DVDs and the open fire gave a touch of romance in the evenings. Agustina who looks after the house was always on hand to answer questions. All in all this house offers all you could possibly want.
The house in Gaucin was the most perfect retreat. Located in this unique village, the home offered all the amenities required for the ideal break with fantastic views from the patio across the mountains down towards Gibraltar and, on a clear day, the north African coastline. The village itself is a remarkable place with lots of culture, friendly people and a variety of excellent eating places. We can thoroughly recommend this holiday home!
