Gaucin, Costa del Sol, Province of Malaga, Andalucia
Casa Mosaica, in the romantic hill top village of Gaucin is situated on the Ronda side of the village, easy to find, with parking outside the door. Casa Mosaica is perfectly situated for guests to walk to the many restaurants, bars and shops in the pretty, narrow, twisting lanes of Gaucin without having to worry about parking.

Totally secret and unseen from the street the magical and peaceful scented garden is full of exotic palms, jasmines, bougainvillea, mosaics and fountains; the pretty swimming pool in its own courtyard is just what you long for after the heat and bustle of village life or a trip to the coast, 35 mins drive away.

This was our eighth visit to Gaucin but the first time we have stayed at Casa Mosaica and I wish we had discovered it earlier. It is a true oasis in the heart of the village, close to all amenities and restaurants yet secluded and private. Emma has created a cosseting space for a truly relaxing holiday, and is a...

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...

It doesn't get better than this. The standard of the accommodation and facilities are fantastic. This is the best holiday accommodation I have ever stayed in. The location is wonderful. A very friendly local community. Very welcoming. Lots of nearby places to see and plenty of good value places to eat. A great family location. Lovely pool, and nearby walks....

About the neighborhood
Gaucin is a beautiful mountain village with sweeping views to Gibraltar and the Rif mountains of north Africa. It is situated against the spectacular backdrop of the Serrania de Ronda. It sits 2000 feet above sea level on the crest of the Sierra del Hacho, and due to its key strategic position was once a major Roman settlement. Its castle, Castillo del Aguila dates from this era and was later expanded by the Arabs into a fortress.

Gaucin, is a traditional Andalucian working village with pretty whitewashed houses and tangle of narrow streets festooned with flowers. The local people are friendly and throughout the year there are several traditional local festivities, including a spectacular bull run through the narrow streets at Easter, and the Saint's day in September.
