Gaucin holiday lettings for your self-catered Andalusian break
Gaucin is a village in Andalusia, Spain. It is also a part of the province of Malaga. The location is ideal, being close to other great tourist destinations such as Jimena de la Frontera. As this village is situated on the top of a hill, your Gaucin holiday rental may also be. Spectacular views of Gibraltar can be seen from the tops of these hills. On a clear day, which is most days, the coast of Morocco can even be seen. The population here is very small, just 2, 000 roughly, so Gaucin should offer visitors some well-needed peace and tranquility, more so than nearby tourist resorts such as Marbella. A Gaucin holiday letting will offer an authentic experience and allow tourists to really get involved in Spanish life. This destination does not compromise on natural beauty and offers all the charm to be expected from southern Spain.
Gaucin holiday accommodation – attractions & recreation
The main attraction here has to be the Castillo del Aguila, which literally means Castle of the Eagle.

There is also a charming little church there. El Hacho is a nice walking, where one can also enjoy impressive views and picturesque scenery. There are a number of festivals here throughout the year, mostly religious once but more just fun events for anyone to take part in. So try to book a Gaucin holiday rental at a time when one is taking place, and join in with the festivities.
