Gaucin Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Large Country house with Indoor Spa comprising heated pool, jacuzzi and sauna

Down a winding country track, past the gate keepers cottage into the 24 acre estate - up the hill and through the electric gates and there lies the finca: a grand retreat beneath the Ronda mountains, with views to the distant Med. Blissfully private, with bags of space, its sprawling, low-lying buildings rise up the hillside in gentle steps: you get a lot of house for your money. Inside is designer smart in creams, taupes and golds, ceilings are lofty and beamed, floors gleam beneath fine rugs, sofas are vast and modern art dots walls and glass-topped tables. Bedrooms have a restrained luxury and a smart rustic style: cool tiles, wrought-iron sconces, shuttered windows.

This is a finca with a real “ WOW Factor ” having its own indoor spa area. Enjoy a swim whatever the weather in our fabulous 13m by 3m heated pool, or have a refreshing jacuzzi or relaxing sauna. The spacious salon leads out to a swimming pool that wraps itself around a Mirador overlooking the bar, which allows you to live the outdoor lifestyle to the full. The terraced dining area makes a cosy yet elegant entertaining space.

All the bedrooms have en-suite generously sized, stylish bathrooms. The finca is packed with features that makes life in the campo as comfortable and relaxing as possible with extras such as a 50 inch satellite TV, Xbox 360 Kinetic, and WiFi internet connection.

Children are very welcome as are babies. We have 2 cots, a child´s size bed, 2 high chairs, a baby bath and sterilizer. If under 12 they must be supervised when swimming because both pools are unfenced. All the bedrooms have fans and mosquito netting on windows. For cooler months there is warm air heating throughout the finca as well as a wood burner in the salon and an open fire in the master bedroom. In the summer there is a cool air system throughout the finca.

Our staff are there on site to help you enjoy yourselves and to make sure everything goes smoothly. Their cottage is separate from the finca and they are very aware that your privacy is important but it is reassuring to know, should you need help, that they are there to assist you.

Masses of space to relax in at this swish, sprawling and very exclusive finca. Enjoy your favourite cocktail at our cosy pool side bar listening to your choice of music. Later, watch the amazing sunsets from the poolside bar.

ENJOY this luxury home near the picturesque village of Gaucín. From the indoor Spa to the spacious Mirador, it´s a great place to “ chill out ”.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have spent a fantastic week here at the Finca,celebrating our Ruby wedding anniversary and friends birthday. The weather was kind to us and the sun shone throughout, so we were able to sample the outdoor pool as well as the indoor both of which were a great hit with our 2 and a half year old granddaughter. The facilities are amazing, but it was the warm welcome from Sara and Ian as well as John and Jane ( who so kindly invited us to meet the alpacas at their beautiful new house) that made the holiday so special. Nothing was too much trouble for Sara! From recommendations for walks and where to buy fish to booking us a table at a lovely restaurant outside Ronda for our celebratory meal and cooking us two delicious meals herself. We are sad to be leaving but have wonderful memories to take home.

A holiday of a lifetime

  • 5 of 5
This was the best holiday we have ever had because the villa is just perfect. It is beautifully presented with superb facilities and lots of space. The outside terrace is wonderful and the 'mirador' is a heavenly place to sit and relax on hot evenings and look out across the valley to the sea. It is in the heart of the countryside and is incredibly peaceful and relaxing and yet not far from beautiful Ronda or the coast. The villa has a stunning outside pool and bar and an amazing indoor lap pool, sauna and spa pool. All the bedrooms/bathrooms are top class and the beds themselves so comfortable. We were looked after so well. This was a real find and we highly recommend it - you will not be disappointed. We will definitely return as soon as we can.

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic time at Finca de Palmero. Lovely villa itself and amazing views. Nice to have such luxuries like the wine cellar and indoor pool and jacuzzi.

We had fun exploring the area ( even though Mummy Humphries not keen on cliff roads and steep drops). Gaucin has a nice climb up to the castle and Ronda has an original bull ring and lovely photo opportunities.

Enjoyed many raucous games of table tennis and had a fantastic tapas/paella meal cooked in the villa by Sara, beautiful seafood and stuffed peppers!

The house & region exceeded our expectations

The house & region exceeded our expectations
  • 5 of 5
Wow – It’s been a while since a vacation really exceeded my expectations. My extended family met at Finca de Palmero for 2 weeks in early June. The house was set-up well for us with the bedrooms separate providing quiet, private space yet plenty of shared space for all of us, especially the kids, to enjoy together. The whole property is fenced-in which was a huge bonus with the kids. It allowed us to relax while the kids were out exploring b/c we knew they couldn’t leave the property. And there was plenty for the kids to explore with goats and alpacas behind the house and lizards running around everywhere. The children loved the outdoor pool and the adults loved the fact that we could enjoy a leisurely lunch or dinner at the outdoor table and still see the kids in the pool. The indoor pool served us well on the one day that it rained and my husband did use it several evenings for swimming laps. But let me cut to the chase, the reason we were really able to relax (with 4 kids under 5 years of age) was because of Craig & Catherine. The breakfast and house-keeping included with the house rental was a great bonus. We loved the meal option as well. This was a great luxury that I think we opted to have 7 of our 14 nights. The food was delicious with lots of fresh herbs from the garden and saved us several trips to the supermarket. In previous villa rentals (Italy) I thought the option to use a cook was cost prohibitive, but here it was fairly priced. Our adventures away from the house included Granada (overnight), Seville, Mijas, the beach at San Luis de Sabinilla and the white washed mountain towns of Gaucin, Ronda and Casares. We enjoyed it all. Additionally the owners, Jane & John had us over for dinner at their home which was such great fun. It was difficult to return home after being spoiled for 2 weeks. I hope to see the Finca again!
