We had only one night in Gaucin whilst Luis was taking a well earned end of season break in Italy. We had the hotel to ourselves, beautifully looked after by Pila. Warm and welcoming, a home from home with breathtaking views from both our room and the top terrace. The rooms and the beds are extremely comfortable, masses of hot... More

In September an old college friend and roommate and I ventured forth on a week's adventure in Andalucia, with the excuse of visiting another classmate who had retired to Gaucin. Gaucin is a typical Pueblo Blanco with lots of ups and downs, very good exercise for the legs, a number of nice cafes and a ruined castle. Our friend suggested... More

We stayed twice during a tour of Andalucia. This is more like a bed&breakfast. In one of those legendary white villages. Already the entry of the hotel makes you feel like you are visiting with friends. The terrace, the "living room", all feels so inviting, intimate, private. Quiet elegance throughout in the choice of furniture, paintings, decoration. The breakfast rooms... More

We continue to go every time we can. Luis is attentive, thoughtful and charming. The food is delicious, they have recently changed chefs and he has obviously spent the Summer working so hard developing a subtle, intelligent and delicious menu. If you plan to go at the weekend make sure you book.

We visited Gaucin in September 2014 for a romantic getaway. It didn't disappoint but I can tell you the highlight was the delicious meal we had in La Fructosa. I am both gluten and lactose intolerant which is frankly a pain. We arrived unannounced at the restaurant and were greeted by the incredibly friendly and accommodating staff. I was given... More

Weird little hostel more than hotel. Charismatic owner manager - friendly, kind. Characterful rooms. A bit basic, rustic. Great food in outdoor restaurant. Difficult parking. Nothing much to do in Gaucin (why do people go there?)

We enjoyed a terrace table with amazing views across the mountains to Gibraltar timed perfectly to watch the sun go down. A family of four adults we each enjoyed a different course from the inextensive menu. The pigs cheek starter and the Iberian pork main being our favourites. The suckling pig and double roasted fish were also excellent. The service... More

I know how important word of mouth is to a small business and so I wanted to thank Jesus & Luis here, for a wonderful evening at La Fructuosa. 17 of us aged 3-77 yrs had a such memorable dinner to celebrate my mothers 70th birthday. We enjoyed a wonderful menu and spectacular views. Luis was the perfect host and... More
