Dream home away from home

Romantic Holiday Hideaway in Gaucín, Andalucía, Southern Spain

From: TripAdvisor Review
Date of stay: October 2018
Rented both the apartment and the casita

Wow! What a place! This place is absolutely beautiful, peaceful and so relaxing. If you are into moorish design, paradise gardens within a lovely Spanish mountain pueblos blanco, yet close to the coast and other places of interest, then this place has it all. There are fabulous mosaics throughout the property and gardens which are stunning and inspiring. We feel as if we are in the grounds of a beautiful ryiad yet outside the walls is an equally beautiful white Spanish mountain town. Stay here and you will immediately feel relaxed. We loved it there and the lovely owner made sure we were well looked after.

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.

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.
