Our third visit here and just as wonderful as the previous two!  This time we have enjoyed visits to Setenile and the Playa de Sardina.
Great food at Paco Pepe, Esquinita and El Atico.

The AirBnB dialog box requests that I ‘Say a few words…’ about my stay. But in all honesty, I couldn’t write enough about the wonderful two week break that I spent at Casa Mosaica. I came in search of space and time to work on a major creative project and I certainly found what I needed in that regard. But Emma’s place has a truly magical quality that elevates your time there beyond simply ‘getting away from it all’ to something quite magical and genuinely profound. If you are coming away to ponder a major life decision, it’s definitely the kind of place that will dissolve the barriers that seem so hard to step over or around when we are stuck in the middle of our busy lives. The house itself is exquisitely decorated and furnished - the mosaic decorations that give the house its name are truly amazing. I was there in February so I didn’t swim, but there is a lovely courtyard area with a large pool that would be perfect for lounging around in warmer weather, and a large terrace for dining al fresco long into the night. Other doors lead out to a beautiful patterned garden built upon a Moorish design where you can bask in the sunlight along with Kevin and Geoffrey, the house cats (note: if you have allergies, like I do, the cats are in no way a problem. They are very well behaved and don’t pester you and the house is spotlessly clean so you won’t be sneezing in their wake). Although small, Gaucin has enough interesting things to see and do and is well positioned for day trips to Ronda and other major attractions like Sevilla, Cordoba, Gibraltar or even just to run down to the coast for a beach day. As mentioned, some of the cycling routes on deserted mountain roads will be the envy of your friends on Strava! There are also some very nice restaurants in the village if you don’t fancy cooking, although the kitchen in the house is well appointed and practical should you prefer to eat in. Finally, I have to mention the bathroom which resembles an undersea grotto with its deep aquamarine blue walls and yet more beautiful mosaics. With the lights dimmed, it is the perfect place to soak and unwind after a long afternoon in the saddle; actually, it’s the perfect place to soak and unwind, period! I’ve stayed in a lot of AirBnB accommodation and rarely had a bad experience but Casa Mosaica is truly outstanding. It’s a place that will enchant you from the moment you arrive and make you regret having to leave. Emma is a wonderful host and her home is a truly special and remarkable place to stay.

Beautiful weather all week. V. lucky.  The walk up El Hacho was fantastic, take water and walking sticks/poles. Azulete is the best restaurant in town. Plaero is also very good.

Another beautiful stay at Casa Mosaica.  We love it here and have some very precious memories of this beautiful place and of Gaucín.  There were times when we thought we would not get here this year because of Covid, but we did and it's been wonderful.  Thank you Emma

We had an amazing week.  Casa Mosaica is a truly remarkable, exquisite, Moorish villa. We loved the attention to detail - everywhere we looked there was something new to discover.  We de-compresses from the stress of London the second we stepped through the door and had a fantastic week eating, reading and painting. We will without doubt, be back.

We've been talking of coming back to Casa Mosaica for years and we finally did and it was as great and lovely as it was in 2012.  Thank you again, Emma for a wonderful stay in your beautiful house.  We'll be back (again)!
