Grab this super apartment in a great spot!
Sylvia's apartment is in great condition and has an open floor plan perfect for vacation! The outdoor dining was fine for breakfast and lunch if you're there in November. Be sure to enjoy the deck with spectacular views and yummy sunshine on a cool day. Though you know you'll see the Rock of Gibraltar, the Mediterranean and the mountains of Morocco; it's magical, especially the lights twinkling at night in Morocco. The listing is accurate and we'd stay again in a minute. Loved being able to easily walk around the charming village, with limited tourists. We took a fabulous photography workshop with Geoff Simpson, a Brit, who lives there now. The phenomenal workshop was focused on us getting our images not Geoff getting his. Geoff, a national geo photographer knows the perfect places to go and times to be there. If you're a photography enthusiast check it out. We never would have found the spots on our own. Besides he's lots of fun too. Though we spent time in Sevilla and Grenada, Gaucin was a highlight of our 2 11/2 weeks in Spain!
Highly recommend this beautiful,apartment!
The description and photos of the Toro Apartment are completely accurate! We loved every moment of our stay. The beauty, both inside and out, is just an added bonus to a well fitted apartment where great care has been taken to meet your every need. Our hosts were away in Rome, at the time of our visit, but they spent much time in e-mails and phone calls to assure that we had a wonderful stay...even stepping in to help, from afar, when we had lost luggage. Florencia, the maid, and her family were more than helpful with anything that we needed in the owner's absence. Please rely on the suggestions for places to visit and eat that are in the information book in the apt., it won't steer you wrong! We went on long day trips to the normal "must see" cities, but also enjoyed a lot of the little off the beaten track spots near by. We were on our own for everything except our trip to Tangier. If you're interested, there is info for a guide in the information book. I can tell you without reserve, the apartment, the people of Gaucin, the food, and the beauty of the Andalucia area, make it well worth a visit! Do rent a small car, our car was too large to navigate the streets with ease, but, not impossible. My only regret for this stay...not having enough time there. ?
This is a lovely apartment in a lovely quiet town. Roomy and modern, with a great balcony to while away the hours. All the conveniences you need, and Sylvia makes sure that everything works exactly as it should. Highly recommended, we can't wait to come back.
I fell in love with a lifestyle!
The ´´Toro´´ apartment gave me the best vacation of my life. I reccommend this apartment to anybody looking to relax and enjoy true Spanish life. The yellow and white decor, right down to the matching books and DVD´s, gave the perfect backdrop to our stay. The open terrace gives the perfect opportunity to enjoy the view outside, overlooking the famous Rock of Gibralter and even Africa on a clear day. I loved walking through the quaint town, discovering my favorite place to get churros or a cafe con leche in the morning, and watching the townspeople go about their daily business. You can even hear the classic Spanish yell in the street--Tio! Hombre! Que pasa!--making me feel a part of a true community rather than just a tourist trap. I highly reccommend Gaucin, and Sylvia and Joe´s apartments, to anyone looking for an authentic Spanish feel with a beautiful view and a wonderful location.
Gaucin is a white village in the Ronda mountains. This area attracts nature lovers as well as sightseers. We are on a major route for migratory birds, a mecca for hikers and mountain bikers. There is a lot of equestrian action, with several groups and riding rings. The town itself has a beautiful unspoiled Moorish castle and good tapas bars and restaurants. It is a perfect base to discover western Andalucia: We are 30 mins from Ronda, 25 ins from the Coast (Sabinillas), 1 hr -- Marbella, 1 hr Gibraltar; 1hr 15 mins Tarifa, 1 hr Algeciras where the ferry goes to Tanger and Ceuta on the African Coast, 2.5 hrs - Sevilla; 2.5 hrs Granada, 3 hrs -- Córdoba.
