My husband and I have lived in 6 different countries over the past 22 years and are looking forward to eventually making Gaucin a semi-permanent home.

Nancy Russell purchased this house in 2010

While being posted to Madrid for four years, we fell in love with Andalucia and dreamed of eventually retiring to Southern Spain. We discovered Gaucin and immediately knew that it has everything we were looking for: stunning views, peace and quiet, lovely white village, friendly people, artsy expat community, gourmet dining, access to beaches, golf, horseback riding, hiking, fishing, and a perfect base for exploring Andalucia. We are pleased to offer our home as a vacation rental until we're ready to retire.

This country house has a lovely, peaceful location. You have beautiful views of Gaucin, but no one can view you! It's a wonderfully quiet and restful spot -- no traffic noise, just occasional goat bells or the bay of a mule. Also the top of the property has panoramic views towards Gibraltar and the Rif mountains (see photo!).

A wonderful tucked away retreat

Rosa Alta was all we had hoped - a quiet off the beaten track property, yet close to Gaucin. The house was lovely with lots of places to relax and ponder the view. At night, the lights of Gaucin and the Castle made the upper terrace a romantic spot for dinner. The children loved the pool which was bigger than we had expected, so a real bonus. The agent, Robin was very helpful, especially when I developed a tooth abscess, organising an emergency appointment with an English speaking dentist for me. Great holiday.

A Superb Holiday Home!

We have stayed in many villas over the years, and we can honestly say that this is the highest quality overall that we have ever enjoyed. The situation is beautiful (although the suggestion of hiring a 4x4 should be heeded!) and the property itself is so well equipped and homely we just didn't want to leave! Gaucin is a perfect village to be near (and what a view of it from the finca!), with several good restaurants and bars without being too touristy, and the countryside is just stunning - particularly the eagles soaring around overhead each day! We shall certainly return to Rosa Alta - we just hope not too many other people find it as we may have trouble booking!

Rustic Andalucia

The best thing about my experience in renting this house was dealing with Nancy and her property manager, who were very informative and responsive in every step.

The property itself is fantastic. Picturesque views, amazing outdoor spaces to relax in, a nice pool, and comfortable living arrangements. We really enjoyed our time here. Our trip in May was at the height of wildflowers, so the countryside was drenched in beautiful color. The downside was that we experienced a bit of rain and a cold snap. The house has fire stoves to make for a cozy setting, but you should have the knowhow to use them if you come outside of the peak of summer.

Gaucin itself is quaint and has enough restaurant and food options to please anyone. Highlights of regional tours included the Cueva de las Piletas and Ronda; we did Sevilla and Granada though they were a bit far. The dirt track to the house was a little bit daunting at first, but the gardener made it in a SmartCaresque-mobile. We didn't have any problems even in days of solid light rain.

Highly recommended. If my future experiences renting houses in Spain goes like this, I'll consider myself lucky.

5 Stars!
Quiet, peaceful, beautiful, contemplative and genuinely Spanish. This area is unspoiled and is an ideal place to live for a week in Andalusia. There are short trips, long walks, road trips, hikes….the area is pregnant with possibilities. Or just hang around the house, which is a joy in of itself. The mountains, vistas, weather, and village has such visual grandeur, and is so striking, that I felt there needed to be a famous artist doing a landscape painting at all times just to do it justice. I never felt so keenly the inadequacy of a camera. If there was a Spanish version of the Hudson River school of painting, the artists would paint from this area of Gaucin. I will go again.

Recommended for:Sightseeing, families with young children, pet owners, romantic getaway, age 55+.
