Delight in all that is Mediterranean
The design of this villa uses the panorama of the green landscape to maximum effect
Located at the very edge of Gaucín is this superb holiday villa with amazing views and with the benefit of being an easy walk into town.
The entrance to the house is by the kitchen at the side of the house, and this door opens to the bright and very cheerful interior.
The kitchen is full of sunshine with full length windows letting in light and the amazing views. Because there are so many windows and you can see the landscape all round, the sensation feels a little like you are floating in the air.
A kitchen table and four stools are in the centre of the room, with another wooden table and five chairs by the windows for an informal breakfast eating area.
One kitchen sink looks out to the landscape, another double sink is closer to the 5-ring electric hob (with full width electric oven). The big fridge-freezer has an ice dispenser and overall the kitchen is very well equipped
The pool terrace is so delightfully pretty
The terrace is full of white daisies and vermilion geraniums. The only sound is birdsong and the gentle ripple of the swimming pool.
From the entrance courtyard, steps go to the swimming pool. To the back of the pool are steps leading to a wildflower meadow.
There are six sunbeds arranged around the swimming pool, all shaded by mature trees. On one side of the pool terrace, the rock wall is planted with shrubs and plants, you are surrounded by nature and it is marvellous!
Down from the pool terrace is another smaller patio and then further down is a terrace that runs along the whole front of the house.
This long walkway is shaded with olive trees and green climbing plants. It’s furnished with a mosaic topped table and a sweet little pool– it’s so restful just to sit and watch the fish.
The walkway terrace continues around the property. You can gain access into the house from the end of this terrace – 13 steps up leads you to a side door to the laundry room (with washing machine, tumble dryer, iron, utility sink).
Vivid textiles are used with flair
The bedroom curtains in this villa are heavy and lined, and there are also blinds to keep out the sun
Bedroom (1) is off the living room, this is a double bedded room with sliding glass doors along one wall to let in the full impact of the stunning view and the balcony.
The en suite bathroom is through an arabic-style archway giving a hint of the treat to follow. This bathroom is beautifully tiled and lit with Moroccan lamps – the whole experience is exotic and stylish. There is plenty of space with a large, well it mirror above the marble-topped basin, walk-in shower and bath tub. The WC is placed separately from the other fittings.
The other two bedrooms are on the lower floor, bedrooms (2) and (3) which are next door to each other.
Bedroom (2) has glass sliding doors to the views (just like bedroom (1)). It has a double king-size bed, and a private terrace which overlooks the walkway terrace below. It has an en suite bathroom.
Books on every subject
The living room is classical but interesting because of all its colourful artwork, textiles and ornaments.
Bedroom (3) is a double twin-bedded room—ideal for children whose parents may be next door in bedroom (2). Although this room doesn’t have an en suite bathroom, there is access (via a small room with a baby’s cot) to a light and bright bathroom.
The bathroom has a walk-in shower, hand basin and WC.
The living room has everything for relaxation and entertainment, one wall is made up of sliding glass doors to let in those amazing views – and to give access to a furnished dining terrace. What a wonderful place to eat at any time of the day!
Off the living room is the entrance lobby to the front door, with a small cloakroom with a WC and washbasin.
You can drive down to the house (Gaucín, like many traditional white villages has narrow streets, so the drive may be steep and tight in places, but certainly navigable) and park on the forecourt which has space for two cars. Alternatively you could park on the street above the property before walking down the lane to the house (2 minute walk).

Amazing views, the best ever. The locals are very hospitable and friendly. Restaurants are superb. Small supermarket nearest to villa is very reasonable with lovely bread. Barking dogs very annoying! Fabulous holiday -will definitely return.
