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. Within a 2 hour drive are Seville, Granada and Cordoba.

It is a half an hour drive from the holiday villa to the beaches and golf courses of the Mediterranean coast.

Guests about this villa

“We hebben enorm genoten van het fijne huis en het mooie Gaucin. De ligging van Casa de Correos is heel mooi, het uitzicht prachtig. De enige opmerking die we hebben is dat mijn man het bed wat hard vond. Verder zijn we zeer tevreden over de service, het huis zelf en de omgeving. Parkeren in de garage vonden wij een mijl op 7 en hebben na 1 keer niet meer gedaan. Geen probleem om de auto wat verderop te parkeren. Kortom, wij zijn voornemens om zeker terug te komen, we hebben het heerlijk gehad! Ook complimenten en dank aan jou voor je snelle reacties en klantgerichtheid, was heel prettig. Wellicht tot ziens dus, vriendelijke groeten,”

Sigrid van Perlo, October 2019

Beste Sigrid, Heel hartelijk dank voor je duidelijke feedback! Heerlijk dat jullie zo genoten hebben. Ik zal dat van het bed doorgeven; misschien kunnen ze er een zachte topper op leggen. De garage is inderdaad klein; makkelijker om gewoon in de straat te parkeren…Heel fijn dat jullie me wat terug wilden melden, daar kan ik dan weer wat mee. Graag tot een volgende keer! Hartelijke groet, Maaike van der Gevel, Vida Rustica

“We hebben alleen lof voor de manier waarop jullie alles hebben georganiseerd. Voor herhaling vatbaar! Casa de Correos is een prachtig huis. Hoge plafonds, geweldige ligging, mooie kamers. We hebben genoten! Vriendelijke groet,”

Marc en Gea van Beuningen, October 2017

Beste Gea en Marc,  Heel hartelijk dank voor jullie fijne en waardevolle feedback! Heel fijn dat jullie het er zo lekker gehad hebben. Daar zijn de eigenaren en wij heel erg blij mee. Geniet er eerst nog maar even lekker van na, en voor daarna: graag tot een volgende keer! Hartelijke groet, Maaike, Vida Rústica,

“We had a wonderful honeymoon at Casa Coreos in Gaucin. Thank you for all your help with our booking, we are thrilled that we decided to use Vida Rustica and had a wonderful time in Gaucin.”

Rachel McDemott, September 2017

Thanks for your feedback; great to hear that you have enjoyed Casa de Correos and that you have had a wonderful time! Cherish your memories! Maaike, Vida Rustica

“We had a fabulous stay at Casa de Correos in Gaucin. The house itself was well prepared for us and the welcome pack was appreciated. This has been the first time I have used Vida Rustica but will definitely be a returning customer in future thanks to your excellent service. The one thing we found particularly helpful was the photos that accompanied the directions to the house. We have already been back on your website to look at houses for next year!
Thank you for the excellent service and the ease of which we were able to organise our holiday. Kind Regards”

Corinne Meek, April 2017

Dear Corinne, Thanks for your kind feedback! I am very happy that you have enjoyed your stay at Casa de Correos. Looking forward to advising you a next time! Maaike, Vida Rustica

“We had a wonderful week in the villa. It was so comfortable and so peaceful, which was exactly what we wanted. We loved the village and made some excursions. We ate well and drank well. The owner could update the restaurant information in the book in the house – by far the best restaurant is El Lateral, followed by El Atica. There is also a great deli with excellent home-cooked dishes to take away. Many thanks for all your help. It was a pleasure to deal with Vida Rustica.”

Linda Scales, September 2016

Dear Linda, Good to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Casa de Correos. Good input on the Deli! For other readers: the deli is Bonissim, it has a Facebook page. The take-away is excellent indeed. Looking forward to advising you again Linda! Maaike, Vida Rustica

“Wir haben einen wunderschönen Urlaub in der CASA DE CORREOS in Gaucin verbracht.
Es war alles so, wie wir es erwartet haben. Die Finca ist sehr, sehr schön, sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet und bietet alles, was man braucht. Super! Danke auch für die Erstverpflegung bei unserer Ankunft! Einfach toll! Von der Finca aus sind alle Restaurants, Bars und Geschäfte zum Einkaufen sehr bequem in kurzer Zeit zu erreichen. Da wir nicht nur schönes Wetter, sondern auch Regentage hatten, hätten wir nur einen kleinen Vorschlag. Da wir das Auto nicht am Hause hatten, fehlte uns ein Schirmchen! Vielleicht freuen sich die nächsten Gäste, als auch wir uns beim nächsten Mal, über einen Kurzzeit-Regenschutz fürs Autoholen, Einkaufen und um auch trockenen Hauptes, die vielen, netten Bars zu besuchen. Wir werden wiederkommen! Liebe Grüße,”

Birgid und Thomas Bolch, Irene Bauer, April 2016

Recht herzlichen Dank für Ihren ausführlichen Feedback mit Bezug auf die Casa de Correos. Es freut mich, dass Sie Ihren Urlaub so genossen haben. Ich werde Ihre netten Worte und den Tip auch an die Eigentümer weitergeben; dass wird ihnen bestimmt auch besonders freuen. Ich hoffe Sie in der Zukunft nochmals beraten zu können. Gerne bis ein nächstes Mal, liebe Grüße,
Maaike, Vida Rústica,

“We just returned from 2 weeks holiday in Andalusia with Sabine Oldenborg. We booked our trip with Vida Rústica and we had a very good time.
The first week we stayed in Rute in Casa Margaretha. Rute is a village in the province Cordoba. From here it is easy to travel to Cordoba and Granada which are beautiful villages. Casa Margaretha is a very cosy villa in a small street in Rute. The villa was fully equiped and some local products were placed in the kitchen for us. Behind the villa there are two nice patios, one with a roof of grapes and fresh lemons and the other with a plunge pool and an outside shower. We had a wonderful time in this villa.
The second week we stayed in Gaucin in Casa de Correos. Gaucin is a village in the province Malaga. From here it is easy to travel to the sea and Ronda. Casa de Correos is a beautiful villa in a street at the border of the village. From the terrace you have a beautiful view towards the sea and Gibraltar. In this villa also an assortment of local products was available for us. There is a nice swimming pool in the garden surrounded by lavender and other flowers. We enjoyed our stay in this villa very much. We will for sure go to Andalusia again and use Vida Rústica for the beautiful holiday villas.”

Sabine Oldenborg and Jeroen Pasman, June 2015

Dear Sabine Oldenborg and Jeroen Pasman, Good to hear that both villas were a good choice. They are quite different, yet each pretty in its own way. And a nice combination, as thus you could visit two very different areas of Andalucía. Quite a challenge to try to beat this next time. We will go for it! Maaike

“We had a lovely stay in the villa last week. Esther was lovely and the villa was beautiful. Shall be back next year! Thanks again, “

Charlene and Scott Gibson, October 2015

“Wir haben im Juli eine Woche in der wunderschönen Casa Correos verbracht. Das liebevoll und sehr authentisch renovierte Dorfhaus in Gaucin war ein guter Ausgangspunkt für Ausflüge in die nähere und fernere Umgebung (Ronda, Alhambra, Gibraltar etc.). Der kleine Pool im Garten mit einer wunderbaren Aussicht auf die Berge hat insbesondere unseren Kindern sehr gut gefallen und bot trotz der Lage mitten im Dorf durch die geschickte Bepflanzung rundum sehr viel Privatsphäre. Gaucin ist ein sehr schönes weißes Dorf und wir hatten das Glück, dass in der Woche die “Semana Cultural de Gaucin” stattfand. Jeden Tag wurde auf dem unmittelbar in der Nähe des Hauses gelegenen Dorfplatz etwas geboten (Lifemusik, Flamenco, Weinverkostungen, Theater etc.). Die Aufführungen wurden teilweise von den Kindern des Dorfes bestritten und waren daher sehr besonders, z. B. im Vergleich zu den üblicherweise in Touristenzentren gebotenen Shows. Besonders angenehm fanden wir auch, dass man vom Haus aus alles zu Fuß erledigen konnte: Geschäfte für den täglichen Bedarf und Restaurants und Bars waren in unmittelbarer Nähe. Wir können das Haus und Vida Rústica jedem empfehlen, der einen authentischen Urlaub fernab des Massentourismus sucht. Wir kommen bestimmt noch einmal wieder.”

Liebe Susanne, Vielen Dank für Ihre netten Kommentar auf Facebook! Das Bild sagt alles … schön, dass Sie so genossen haben. Ich empfehle Ihnen gerne zu einem nächsten Mal! Maaike, Vida Rustica

“Wir sind gestern aus dem traumhaften Ort Gaucín begeistert zurückgekehrt und möchten unsere tolle Eindrücke von dem gesamten Ambiente der Casa de Correos weitervermitteln. Es war ein sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet mit allen drum und dran, sehr freundliche Menschen die wir dort begegnet sind, einfach unbeschreiblich schön. Auf jeden Fall werden wir Vida Rustica weiterempfehlen und hoffen auch für uns daß es nicht das letzte mal war so ein Urlaub zu machen. Vielen Dank für ihre Mühe und viele Grüße an alle die dazu beigetragen haben so ein schönes Haus und die Atmosphäre zu kreieren.”
