Romantic Moorish tower house set in exotic garden with stunning swimming pool

Holiday Rental House -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
Gaucin, Costa del Sol, Province of Malaga, Andalucia
Casa Mosaica Is a very unusual and stunning, Moorish-style property in the vibrant and celebrated hill top village of Gaucin, one of the ‘Pueblos Blancos’ of Andalucia; a pretty, traditional village, with spectacular views to Africa, where donkeys are still working and local festivities are enthusiastically celebrated.

Hidden behind an anonymous façade is the private, and surprisingly large Casa Mosaica. Unseen from the busy street, the peaceful scented garden is full of exotic palms, jasmines, bougainvillea, mosaics and fountains; the pretty swimming pool in its own courtyard is just what you long for after the heat and bustle of village life a trip to the Mediterranean coast 29kms away or nearby Ronda.

Situated on the Ronda side of the village and easy to find, with parking outside the door, Casa Mosaica is perfectly placed for gues...

Interaction with guests
Casa Mosaica has been the home of Emma C for 18 years. She is currently (2018) living and working partly in London, spending about 6 months in Gaucin. There are 2 friendly house cats, Kevin and Geoffrey and Spanish family who look after the house and garden, and a British maintenance man. If Emma is there she will show you around the Casita, and more then likely invite you for drinks on her terrace during your stay, she will not use the pool area when there are guests renting either property. There is a good house book full of useful local information or you can contact Emma before for any special information. If the owner is not in residence an arrangement will be made for collecting keys.

About the neighbourhood
Casa Mosaica is perfectly placed for guests to walk to all the shops as well as the many restaurants and charming tapas bars in the narrow lanes of Gaucin. A full 'insiders' list of every thing that is good in the area is available for guests in the house. Gaucin is one of the most spectacularly beautiful mountain villages of Andalusia. The location is astounding: white houses ranged along a lofty ridge framed by craggy peaks, vultures and eagles wheeling overhead surrounded by miles of sun dried hills. There are beautiful beaches from 30 mins drive away. Several national parks nearby and walking groups for visitors to join. Horse riding. Nearby cities to visit: Ronda, Tangier, (Morocco). Malaga, Seville, Jerez, Granada.
Getting around
A car is essential. The famous 'Mr. Henderson's Railway' built in 1890 from Algeciras to Ronda passes through Estacion de Gaucin (20 min drive from the town!) and well worth a memorable journey through the gorges of the Sierra de Ronda.

It's difficult to park in Gaucin, but Casa Mosaica is on the Ronda side of the village and parking is always possible outside.
