Five stars are inadequate. Best house we have stayed in over 25 years of holiday rentals. You feel more like a house guest than a renter. Beautiful property, so well kept and equipped. Ruffi and her family very lovely and helpful. Emma could not have done more to make us feel at home. Very much hope to go back next year and the next and the next... It helps that Gaucin is also Paradise!!!

The accommodation was definitely the best we have ever stayed in. The attention to detail throughout was absolutely fantastic and it felt luxurious. The mosaic decoration throughout was stunning. There is nothing that I could fault whatsoever. We used both the garden and the poolside terrace and each of them provided a wonderful relaxing place to sit, eat dinner and drink wine. The cats Geoffrey and Kevin were very friendly and were always pleased to see us. The village is very picturesque and we enjoyed walking around in the cooler periods of the day. There are some lovely restaurants to eat in and we would often have a glass of wine by the fountain in the evening. Although it is quite far away, there is a very large Carrefour in Estepona which has the largest fresh fish counter I have ever seen - it's definitely worth going to see it.

Gaucin has had such a very special place in our hearts since our fist visit in 1993, and after an interval of 14 years it has not disappointed and it is just as difficult to tear ourselves away...thank you Emma, Kevin & Geoffrey for the loan of your beautiful home, quite the loveliest and best equipped we've ever let. A magical week and a wonderful place to celebrate Ella's 21st birthday, hasta luego

Beautiful place to stay. It is definitely the most luxurious we've ever stayed in. Geoffrey & Kevin (the 2 additional house guests) were very welcoming too!

Thank you Emma for letting us share your lovely home. We have barely moved other then from the pool to your exquisite garden, very lazy but well needed rest from manic life and work. I go back inspired with trying my hand at mosaics(but on a rather smaller scale)!

Behind high walls in the more modern and unassuming part of Gaucin, near the Ronda road, lies a big surprise...Casa Mosaica. Its two-bedroom apartment is the ground-floor part of the big house, making it flow naturally into the surrounding gardens, with large swimming pool, fountains, and of course, many stunning mosaics. And as you step through the threshold, you realise that you're not just in Andalucia's most breathtaking hilltop village; you're somehow also in Morocco. It's all around you, inside and out, full of decorative details in the hallways, bedrooms and ensuites, with stand-out features like the full-length mosaic frieze of ancient geese in the kitchen. Stunning, but also comfortable and relaxing.

So thank you, Emma, for creating this unique oasis, and letting us experience it for a while. I've been coming to Gaucin almost every year since 1998, staying in many different village properties, at different seasons. But to see and walk in these gardens in May is something special, that lifts this Moroccan dream.
