We are just returning from a week in Emma’s gorgeous casita and what a week it was. It is so tastefully decorated and has everything you could think of in terms of facilities (and a few things we didn’t think of!)
I can say without a doubt that this is the best rental property I have ever stayed in, and just the perfect place for a getaway as a couple.
We spent most of our time either lounging by the pool or sitting on the rooftop (which has views to DIE for).
We are already planning our next visit. Don’t think twice about staying here :)
Another super relaxing time; reading, enjoying the sun and strolling into town for a drink or some food. Emma’s properties, both the Casa and the Casita, are real homes from home. It is the type of place where within 5 minutes of arriving you’ve completely switched off. Everything you need for a great holiday is here which is probably why we keep coming back.
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 consummate host, not intrusive at all yet there if you need her, with her wealth of knowledge about the village and the area. We loved it, and can't wait to go back again.
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 that you're not just in Andalucia's most breathtaking hilltop village; you're somehow also in Morocco. It's all around you, inside and out, full of decorative details in the hallways, bedrooms and ensuites, with stand-out features like the full-length mosaic frieze of ancient geese in the kitchen. Stunning, but also comfortable and relaxing.
So thank you, Emma, for creating this unique oasis, and letting us experience it for a while. I've been coming to Gaucin almost every year since 1998, staying in many different village properties, at different seasons. But to see and walk in these gardens in May is something special, that lifts this Moroccan dream into first place. The best you can get in Gaucin.
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. The local beach we visited was perfect and virtually deserted.

Fantastic property in a lovely setting and beautifully furnished. A real home from home with everything catered for. A lovely swimming pool a few steps away from the doors of all rooms. Emma is a charming host and will do as much or as little as you want - plus is a mine of information about Gaucin and the surrounding area. We stayed with our 1 year old boy and even a cot bed and high chair were provided. Really cannot recommend Casa Mosaica highly enough.
