Description

Small, delightful, mountain village houses don't get much better than this, and Casa Muñeca which sleeps 3 could not be situated in a more magical place. Located on one of the tangle of old narrow winding streets and lanes that make up the heart of the village, Casa Muñeca is located some midway between the apply named Eagle's Castle (Castillo del Águila) and the village center.

This Gaucín, single story house, cleaned and managed locally, has an abundance of style and immense warmth. Pretty as a picture inside, the house has the distinctive, traditional character of Southern Spain, with terracotta floors, hand-glazed local tiles, soft, relaxing colours and furnishings. For the cooler months an open log fire along with a gas fire and electric heating radiators, combine to give a warm cosy feel. Put simply Casa Muñeca stands out from other Andalucían cottages and combines the spectacular, breathtaking, natural surroundings of this part of inland Andalucía with excellent facilities

A place where, from the terrace at the rear of Casa Muñeca, it's not unusual to see Eagles soaring overhead. Then looking down over the surrounding countryside towards the coast - over the valley of the Rio Genal, woods of Cork trees and craggy peaks - to see some 50 km distant, Gibraltar and the Mediterranean spread out below like some super sized map and on a clear day you can see beyond Europe over the straits of Gibraltar to Africa and the distant Rift mountains of Morocco.

Location description from owner

The Andalucia region

Gaucin is well placed as a touring base for Andalucia. It is thirty kilometres from the town of Ronda on the El Tajo gorge. Ronda is home to the first bullring in Spain, many museums, good shops and decent places to eat. It is a great source of antiques and pottery.

The region now has a good network of European-funded motorways so the cities of Seville, Granada and Cordoba are within reach and there are trains from Estaçion Gaucin (Gaucin train station) which connect to all the main cities.

Gaucin has three national parks around it – Sierras de las Nieves, los Alcornocales and Grazalema – so it makes an excellent base for walking. Its sits directly beneath the migration flight path of birds between Europe and North Africa so Spring and Autumn are particularly interesting for the bird life and a local ornithologist arranges half and full day guided tours of the best viewing spots.

The coast is half an hour's drive away with Estepona being the nearest coastal town. We agree with the Rough Guide that Estepona is where the Costa stops and the real Spain begins. You can drive one and a half hours west to Tarifa, a town more North African than Spanish. the ferry goes from here across to Tangiers or you can join windsurfers from around the world on the ten kilometre white sandy – and windy – beach. Continuing west brings you to Europe's largest marshland wildlife sanctuary at Cota Donana, then on to Cadiz and Portugal.

This area of Andalucia is full of interesting, even wonderful, sights – Moorish villages barely changed since the Christian conquest, brilliant ever changing mountain landscapes, fascinating birds, animals, plants and people both proud and courteous.

Gaucin

Gaucin, overlooked by its' ruined Moorish castle rising above sheer cliffs with resident eagles and vultures, it is a village of tiny winding streets with spectacular, sublime panoramic views over a landscape of oaks, cork trees and craggy peaks to the faraway Mediterranean, Gibraltar and the Rif mountains of North Africa. A place from where after dark you can glimpse the lights of the port of Tangier.
