“Restful place with wonderful views”
Reviewed 21 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Perched near the top of a hillside overlooking a very deep valley, Casa Muneca offers super views over mountains, valleys, forest and farmland. The facilities of the house are first class, wanting for very little in a village that offers all you need for a rural holiday. If there's one piece of advice - in hiring a car, make sure its small as the streets in Gaucin are not generous

“A house with a View”
Reviewed 13 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Casa Muneca sits at one of the highest points in Gaucin so provides a spectacular view down to Gibraltar and across to the Rif mountains of Morocco. The terrace receives sun from noon hour on so it is a lovely spot to relax and enjoy a snack or a meal. The house is well appointed with everything needed for a comfortable stay. There is a well stocked collection of DVDs, books, and CDs, and the kitchen has a full range of everything that might be needed for meal preparation. There is an excellent food store close by and many good restaurants within a five minute walk. The local manager of the house, Agustina, is welcoming, friendly, and always available to help with anything guests might need. Nights can be cool but there is good heating from a gas heater, a fireplace, and a small electric heater in the bedroom. Hikers and birdwatchers will be able to enjoy countless trails and many migratory birds as well as local eagles and raptors.

“Truly Excellent House!”
Reviewed 11 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

This was the second time we had stayed in Casa Muneca in the last 3 years. The house is in the center of the village in a quiet location. It is clean, comfortable and nicely furnished. We could see that a number of small improvements had been made which added even more to our very enjoyable stay. There are stunning views towards Gibraltar and Africa from the terrace, sun loungers to sunbath and relax on, the comfortable bed, the various artefacts add even further to the unique character of the house. The village is friendly with many bars and several good restaurants. In the house there were guide books about local walks which we found very useful, a wide selection of DVDs and the open fire gave a touch of romance in the evenings. Agustina who looks after the house was always on hand to answer questions. All in all this house offers all you could possibly want.

“A Fantastic Place for a Holiday!”
Reviewed 9 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The house in Gaucin was the most perfect retreat. Located in this unique village, the home offered all the amenities required for the ideal break with fantastic views from the patio across the mountains down towards Gibraltar and, on a clear day, the north African coastline. The village itself is a remarkable place with lots of culture, friendly people and a variety of excellent eating places. We can thoroughly recommend this holiday home!

“We felt like home, only better weather”
Reviewed 8 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Casa Muneca is a fully equipped, spacy and calm house, in walking distance to a supermarket and bars. It has a balcony with a lot of sun; however, there was no sun in the morning when we had breakfast.. But that was actually the only thing we could complain about. Great place to stay!

“Convenient house with stunning view”
Reviewed 4 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

A small but convenient house suitable for a couple. Nice terrace with a beautiful view where you can see Gibraltar as well as Atlas mountains in Africa on a bright day. Gaucin is a charming small white town with beautiful surroundings suitable for walks. The narrow streets is a challenge for newcomers in particular if you come by car.

“Wonderful homely casa in a lovely village with awesome views”
Reviewed 31 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

A wonderful casa that feels like home from home and the open fire on a winter evening makes the stay so special. We were lucky to have a few days of sunshine most days during our 13 night stay and the terrace is just wonderful for sunbathing and relaxing with spectacular views over the green green land with river and hills to the coast and beyond to the rock and africa. The location is inland and we had a car so made our holiday an adventure and as most restaurants in the village are closed in january, allowed us to travel to the coast to dequesa and sabinillas some evenings to eat out. Such an experience having large groups of vultures flying overhead and we were lucky enough to see eagles too. A bumpy, windy road from the coast but worth the drive for the scenery ...every bend has a new view and the villages in the hills look different from every angle. The local villagers all seem friendly and the local supermarket was suprisingly well stocked making eating in an option. The only improvement i can think of would be an oven as i personally dont use microwaves but the kitchen had everything else you would need. From time of booking to when we got back Philip the owner was always informative, thorough and friendly throughout. Agusta the lady who looks after the casa in Gaucin is a character too and recommends the translation app on google so we found out how to use it for the first time. Much fun was had and a beautiful casa in a wonderful part of andalucia. Hope to return again in the future!
