Dream home away from home

Romantic Holiday Hideaway in Gaucín, Andalucía, Southern Spain

We are just returning from a week in Emma’s gorgeous casita and what a week it was. It is so tastefully decorated and has everything you could think of in terms of facilities (and a few things we didn’t think of!)

I can say without a doubt that this is the best rental property I have ever stayed in, and just the perfect place for a getaway as a couple.

We spent most of our time either lounging by the pool or sitting on the rooftop (which has views to DIE for). We are already planning our next visit. Don’t think twice about staying here :)

I have to take this opportunity to thank you for creating and letting us stay in such a very, very special house. The planning of the space and the attention to detail are extraordinary. You could easily have fitted in 1 or 2 more bedrooms in there. You didn't REALLY need the double height living space but how wonderful that it's there.

There is an all pervasive feeling of airiness and peace throughout. As soon as we stepped through the blue gates we felt bodies and minds relax. I really could go on and on about all sorts of stuff - the scent of the jasmine followed by the cedar? doors - the mirrored mosaic floors giving an extra sparkle - the incredible garden that made Mondragon Palace in Ronda such a let down etc etc. But we must especially mention the top terrace, as I know others have - the views, changing through the day and those wonderful swifts and eagles. We might have to come again.

And easy-going Gaucin itself seemed to match the mood you created. We're not foodies and usually cook for ourselves while away but it was hard to avoid eating very well with a terrific selection of friendly eateries within 5 minutes walk.

Thank you Emma for creating such a wonderful home away from home. We loved our time in beautiful Gaucin – it was the perfect respite for a two week break. We will miss our afternoons out on the balcony and evenings in front of the fire.

This has been a wonderful stay. The casita is just perfect and Gaucin has so much to offer. Platero & Co., La Fructuosa & Azulete are totally recommended. The views & heritage all around are fantastic. We will so miss “our tower”, many thanks for a fantastic stay.

We spent two terrific weeks at Casita Mosaica. It's simply stunning! Quirky and interesting with everything you need. Beautiful gardens with lemon trees -great for the gin and tonics? The pool is lovely and the village of Gaucin is quiet and peaceful but with 5/6 restaurants and bars so enough to keep you occupied. Everything is within walking distance of the Casita. Just a great place to spend a holiday - no hesitation in recommending. The owner has shown great care and attention throughout.
Casita Mosaica From: Long term rental from 2015 to 2017

Casita Mosaica is a stunning and seductive one bedroomed tower, nestling in the magical hidden garden of Casa Mosaica. It has a beguiling private court yard, where you can sip a glass of the delicious local wine under the majestic palm tree canopy.

Alternatively, you can take yourself up to the wonderful covered roof terrace and drink in the views of this fascinating corner of Southern Spain or simply look down upon the splendid garden, and swoon.

The Casita is brimming with Moorish character and furnished sympathetically to an excellent standard, ensuring that your romantic holiday has all of the creature comforts the discerning travel expects and yet it feels like a home away from home. A dreamy property that you will fall in love with.

Situated in the renowned white village of Gaucin, you are within short walking distance of the local shops and wonderful bars and restaurants that the village has to offer. It is a vibrant working Spanish pueblo offering authentic Spanish life at close quarters.

The property offers wonderful walking opportunities direct from the doorstep for those seeking breathtaking views, but for those seeking a more leisurely pace, then take yourself down the garden to the pool, which is shared with the equally beautiful Casa Mosaica apartment, and soak up the sun or cool off in the glorious water.

You will not be disappointed by this lovely property, far from it, you will be delighted.

This was our second visit to Casa Mosaica. Both times we stayed in La Casita which is perfect for a couple. It is beautiful with all its colour and the mosaics in the floors and stairs, and in the shower!

La Casita has a well-equipped kitchen where we cooked breakfasts for six of us. Our daughter, her husband and two daughters (twelve and nine years old) stayed in the apartment. We shared meals quite a few times during our week stay, in the garden, near the pool and on the patio of La Casita.

Casa Mosaica is in such an ideal location in Gaucin. The main grocery store is right across the street. Even though we were there in mid-August during the heat, both La Casita and the apartment stayed cool enough for us to sleep and enjoy both places. Then of course, we had the pool to cool off in and gather around. The girls spent many hours in the water.

Our daughter's family visited Tangier for a day and wished they could have stayed longer. Their guide was recommended by Emma, our host. Who, by the way, is the perfect host - always there if you need anything. We would love to go there every year if it weren't so far away!

Been here for the second time and the main reason for coming back is the roof terrace.

We love the house and the architecture/design.

Hope to come back soon.
