Casa Carob is a unique home full of character. The owner is an artist and has spent many years building her home, decorating the villa with original art work and individual items that have been collected over the years. All creating this homely and individual space.

Casa Carob is Surrounded by 5 acres overlooking the natural mountainside, over to the sea and the coastline of Africa, with not a neighbour in sight. The finca used to be an almond farm and has figs, carobs and olives as well as plenty of almond trees. The outside areas and pool are idyllic with a large 8m x 4m private pool and a partly covered roof top terrace – perfect for star gazing. Wifi is available and parking is outside the house. This really is a home from home.


At the heart of the house is an open plan kitchen/dining/sitting area with glass skylight giving a bright and airy feeling. The kitchen is hand made from oak and well equipped with stove and oven, 5 ring hob, dishwasher, fridge freezer, toaster, microwave and plenty of dishes and utensils. Large glass double doors lead onto a vine covered terrace and another set of glass double doors lead into the sitting room/TV room with DVD, DVD library, games, books and fireplace.


The master bedroom is located on the entrance level where the living and dining area is situated. With a king size four poster bed and windows facing easterly allowing fabulous sunrises to be admired. On the same level is a bedroom with a single bed. These rooms are accessed by a small hallway connecting them to the bathroom with separate shower and bath tub. Down external steps, beside the pool area, are two further bedrooms with double beds and a shower room, accessed via a covered terrace.

Outside Areas

The large partly covered top roof terrace with 360 degree mountain and sea views is an amazing place to have an early evening drink and enjoy the sunset. There is a table and chairs to dine or simply relax. The vine covered lower patio just off the dining area has a sofa arm chairs and large mosaic coffee table. There are many mature plants and climbers around most of the house. The private swimming pool, 8m x 4m, located beside the 2 bedrooms on the lower level is accessed by steps. It is beautifully built, surrounded by natural stone and a decking at the far end.

The rest of the land is ripe for investigation, there are many amazing walks directly from the house including the old smugglers track from Gibraltar.

Please note, there are three cats living at the property, they are very friendly and are not the guests responsibility though they may be around.

My family of 5, our 3 kids aged, 7, 7 and 8 in age and my wife and I absolutely loved this place. The pictures can’t capture the amazing setting this place is in. Gaucin is beautiful as re the neighbouring towns. The house was a home form home. The setting was quiet and peaceful. Sae loads of wildlife including eagles and wild Boars! I’m normally ready to go home after being away 10 days but none of us wanted to leave.
