Casa Menta. Typical Spanish townhouse, romantic and rustic
From £1,300 per week
Inside Casa Menta there is exceptional character with numerous spaces full of individualism. The rustic style creates a wonderful Spanish/Moroccan atmosphere with cosy rooms and delightful surroundings. The outdoor terrace areas are spacious, and the centred courtyard and walled garden where the pool lies provides an area for relaxing in privacy with a barbeque, fig trees, orange trees and endless plants creating a home from home.
One of only a handful of houses left in Gaucin with some walls as thick as 70 cm, this house has great history. Many years ago La Residencia was an extremely large house owned by a compulsive gambler who, piece by piece, sold off sections to clear his losses. This is the largest part. The courtyard garden and pool was once home to his horses.
The house consists of 3 levels, which can be viewed on the Floor Plans.
The top level is where the master double bedroom is located with a wood burner and private en-suite bathroom with bath, over head shower and basin. Next to this is the spacious and airy living room with an open fireplace and comfortable interiors. There is a television, DVD and wifi access. Leading off the living room is a terrace for outside dining or relaxing while admiring the views. There is a table seating up to six and an additional cushioned bench area.
The middle level is where the kitchen and dining room are located. The kitchen is fully equipped with all you need for your holiday including a dishwasher, oven and fridge freezer. There is also wood burner. A separate washroom sits beside the kitchen where the washing machine is located. This also has a shower, basin and wc. The kitchen leads you through a central courtyard down to the pool. On this level there is also a twin bedroom, with two single beds, an en-suite bathroom and wood burner. The balcony overlooks the pool and garden. From here an outdoor staircase leads you up to the top level or down to the pool. You can also enjoy the coolness and quietness of the day room.
The Lower Level is the entrance to the house. As you open the traditional wooden door from the narrow Spanish street the hidden delights begin. This is an incredibly private space with a shaded alcove for relaxing, sunbeds to enjoy the sun and a wonderful arched entrance to a delightful pool. There’s a barbecue and fridge, wooden garden furniture, plenty of plants and greenery, fig trees and lemon trees. There is also the third bedroom behind the pool area with a double bed and basin. You can walk back up through the central courtyard or all the way up to the top terrace from this area.
Please note, there are numerous steps around the house, therefore we do not recommend this house for the elderly. Those with young children should be aware and take care.
Casa Menta is located in the heart of Gaucin. There are traditional tapas bars and delightful restaurants nearby. There are also plenty of shops around the corners of the narrow streets with local produce, plus larger general stores and a pharmacy, local banks and a health food shop.
Gaucin is perfectly situated in the Andalucian Mountains to enjoy both the cultural and historic cities and the buzz and glamour of the coastal towns. The mountains provide a sense of peace with wonderful walks, horse riding and many other cultural activities and art filled pleasures. The coast being so close also allows you to explore and have some fun on the water, take your pick of many Golf courses or indulge in the boutiques and nightlife.
