Out and About

Gaucín is a spectacularly beautiful mountain village commanding sweeping views to Gibraltar and the Riff mountains of north Africa. Its magnificent castle dates from the time of the Roman settlement, and was later expanded by the Arabs into a fortress.

The area of the Costa del Sol Interior in Andalucía is famous for its many cultural sites and for its beautiful Natural Parks. The scenery  is stunning (Los Alcornocales Natural Park, Serranía de Ronda, Sierra de las Nieves etc.). It is a paradise for walking, exploring, riding and bird watching.

There are numerous remains of ancient civilizations in the area. Nearby Ronda is famous for its spectacular Puente Nuevo that spans the deep canyon that divides Ronda’s old and ‘new’ quarters, and there are Moorish palaces, Renaissance mansions, and Andalusia’s best preserved Arab baths.

Guests about this villa

“There are not words to describe the beauty of this house. We loved it ALL, even the rain!! Weather is clearing and we have been swimming every day! Cristina was fabulous, as was every detail of this very special place. Thank you! We will be back…”

Janet Moore and family, November 2018


“Het was een fantastisch huis met de hele week fantastisch weer en geweldige uitzichten. Dus we hebben vooral buiten geleefd en binnen geslapen. Eén nacht extreem onweer en regen waarbij de stroom uitviel. Onze kleinzoon sliep er heerlijk doorheen. De temperatuur van het zwembadwater was vrij laag. Dat was echt even doorkomen. We hebben er echter veel gebruik van gemaakt. Ook over het autoverhuurbedrijf Helle Holis erg te spreken. Dit verliep super in de afhandeling en transferservice van en naar het vliegveld. Dat was dus een goede tip. Al met al, prima georganiseerd, fantastisch huis en heerlijk om op terug te kijken.  Heel hartelijk dank hier voor. Vriendelijke groet,”

Dineke en Lourens van den Berg, October 2018

Beste Dineke en Lourens, Heel hartelijk dank voor jullie uitgebreide feedback. Ik ben blij dat jullie toch wel veel hebben kunnen zwemmen, ook al was het water aan de frisse kant. Ondanks de verwarming blijft het toch ook afhankelijk van de buitentemeratuur en de temperaturen zijn in Andalusie nog steeds sinds de vortex boven Finland afgelopen februari (!), lager dan normaal. En in Nederland is het juist zo lang zo mooi geweest. Het belangrijkste is dat jullie het heerlijk gehad hebben en van jullie familie hebben kunnen genieten! Graag tot een volgende keer, Hartelijke groet, Maaike, Vida Rustica



“I wanted to say how much myself and my family LOVED Casa Dana – we did not want to leave ! It was just perfect and I fell in love with the town of Gaucín. I could see myself having a home of my own there. Thank you once again, it was a beautiful and memorable trip. Kindest wishes,”

Iain Grant, November 2017

Thanks Iain, That is good to hear! Love to advise you again a next time! Best wishes, Maaike, Vida Rustica
