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.

Even closer is the sweet village named ‘El Colmenar’ (or also called Estacion de Gaucin). In El Colmenar there are three very nice and reasonably priced restaurants.  Also it is possible to swim in the river.  El Colmenar has a train station with connection to Ronda and Algeciras.  The train journeys take you through stunning scenary and are very enjoyable.  The owner prefers El Colmenar to Gaucin, as it is more peaceful.

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 45 minutes drive from the holiday villa to the beaches and golf courses of the Mediterranean coast.

Guests about this villa

“We hadden het prima naar de zin in de zeer mooie, prima ingerichte villa. Als we al een uitermate klein puntje van opbouwende kritiek mogen uiten, dan het ontbreken van ovenschotels voor gebruik in de oven. Een pietluttig detail dus. Dit was werkelijk de perfecte villa, zowel naar stijlvolle inrichting, grootte, zwembad .. alles. Ook de hulp van Josefi en Jamie waren uitmuntend, iedereen zeer vriendelijk, ook de ‘poolboy’. Niets dan positieve commentaar dus. Ook de organisatie en hulp van jou was prima, absoluut niets aan op te merken, bedankt!! Ik hou je aanbod zeker in beraad voor volgende reizen. Met vriendelijke groeten,”

Pierre Demesmaeker, August 2018

Dank voor je uitgebreide terugmelding! Fijn dat jullie het zo lekker gehad hebben bij Las Maravillas. Ik heb Jamie al gevraagd een paar ovenschotels toe te voegen. Graag tot een volgende keer, Maaike, Vida Rustica


“Prachtig huis op een fantastische plek! Zeer goed geoutilleerde keuken. Fijne bedden. Heerlijke tuin en een mooie binnenplaats om ’s middags te lunchen. Echt een plek voor iedereen die rust en ruimte wil. Wij hebben genoten!”

G.H. , May 2016


“We hebben een heerlijke tijd gehad in Las Maravillas. Wat een rust en wat een uitzicht! ’s ochtends wakker worden van het geluid van de vogels en soms een paar schappen die verderop op de heuvel voorbijlopen en dan de hele dag wegdromen bij het uitzicht over de middellandse zee, waar je bij helder weer de rots van Gibraltar en zelfs het gebergte van Marokko ziet liggen. Het huis is lekker groot, goed ingericht en met name de geweldige keuken heeft ervoor gezorgd dat we ons ontzettend thuis voelden. “
