Description from owner


Nestled in the mountains near the pueblo blanco of Gaucin and only 1.5 hours from Malaga airport, Finca Avedin is an unbeatable destination for relaxing with family and friends.

A short walk from the pretty village of Gaucin, Finca Avedin is set within its own 15 acre estate of cork forest, woodland and olive and almond groves. It's a peaceful setting that gives you a feeling of calm as soon as you arrive. On the slopes of the Serrania de Ronda in the Andalucian mountains, it offers fantastic opportunities for walking, birdwatching and other outdoor pursuits and, if you're an art lover, you're only moments from the renowned art studios of Gaucín. Whether you're relaxing by the pool, discovering secret corners of the landscaped gardens or admiring the fabulous views, you'll truly feel like you've found your own Spanish oasis.

A traditional farmhouse, Finca Avedin has been lovingly restored to create a wonderful country home. Wrapped around a large central courtyard, you'll find Moorish-influenced rooms with whitewashed walls, exquisite furnishings and carefully-chosen antiques as well as all the modern comforts you'd expect. The villa is spacious yet cosy, luxurious yet comfortable and has been described as having an amazing energy. With seven en-suite bedrooms and extensive indoor and outdoor living space, Finca Avedin offers you a gorgeous home away from home.

Our seven ensuite bedrooms are spacious and beautifully furnished with bedlinen, towels, hairdryers and toiletries provided. The beds in bedrooms 2, 3, 6 and 7 can be separated to provide two single beds or joined together to create Superking beds. Our small casita with its own kitchenette and ensuite shower room provides two additional single beds and our wonderful Belle Tent which is available from May to October and also has two single beds and its own ensuite shower room. The casita and tent are available on request at an additional cost.

Set against the backdrop of the majestic mountains and with the scent of orange and lemon in the air, there's no better place to recharge your batteries. Families and groups of friends can enjoy the spectacular infinity pool, immaculate gardens and nature on your doorstep. You won't want to leave....

Very Good

“Beautiful mountain top retreat”

Reviewed 18 Mar 2018

We had such an amazing holiday at Finca Avedin! The house is enormous and is set around a pretty courtyard. All the rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated. The house has stunning views from all round but for us the most breathtaking was the view of the surrounding mountains from the pool area. The photos don’t do it justice! It’s perfectly located just outside Gaucin which is a picturesque village with lovely bars and restaurants and friendly locals. I would highly recommend Finca Avedin to anyone looking for a holiday in Southern Spain.

“Perfect Mountain Retreat in Gaucin”

Reviewed 18 Mar 2018

We spent a week at this stunning Finca in the summer with family and friends. The views are incredible, the pool is gorgeous (huge!) and it's a short walk in to the village of Gaucin for delicious tapas and cava. The Finca itself has been decorated to a high standard with moorish influences, and even with 12 of us in the house there was plenty of room, we were never on top of one another. One of our favourite spots was the wonderful terrace at the front where you can dine in the shade when it gets too hot and while away the twilight hours over cocktails. There are plenty of walks from the front door taking you over green hills, through forests and into the Genal Valley. All in all a fabulous Finca in a truly fabulous location. We can't wait to return!

“A beautiful hidden Gem”

Reviewed 17 Mar 2018

A truly stunning property with breathtaking mountain views from the infinity pool. We enjoyed a week’s stay here with our family and were very well looked after by Victoria the live in housekeeper and chief breakfast maker. A lovely local lady. The house is a real “get away from it all” place but equally fantastic for children with loads of space, large bedrooms, all en suite, each with its own Moroccan character, the amazing pool, table tennis, boules and exploring the surrounding hillside. Our boys loved it! We spent most evenings cooking BBQ’s in the large brick built BBQ on the terrace overlooking the mountains. A gorgeous spot to eat dinner watching the sun going down behind the hills. One night we treated ourselves to a fully catered meal cooked in the house by the recommended chef. Fantastic! It’s also an easy drive to the coast which we did one day and to Gibraltar. We will definitely be back - when we can get a booking in!! Highly recommended.
