Casa Gompera in the heart of the mountain village of Gaucin, is an artist's imaginative conversion of a traditional house, into four self contained apartments (including an artist's studio)around a central palm shaded courtyard.
Each apartment has a private outside and inside dining area, kitchen and bath or shower room. Great for extended families, friends sharing art/activity groups or to rent separately. There is a communal dining room, shady outer courtyard, and flower filled garden. There is a pool, which can be heated among the massive rocks. Set just below the romantic castle of the eagle, the house is within walking distance of bars and restaurants, and the surrounding mountain countryside is spectacular.
La Casa Gompera is a unique traditional moorish courtyard house which still retains much of its original Andalucian character.
While the apartments have been made comfortable and private the inner courtyard with giant plam tree, semi-ruined outer courtyard and garden offer a haven to our guests, and are sofly lit at night. You can enjoy the many aspects of a stunning setting, village and mountain views, and imaginative planting in an unusual and exotic garden. Although there is much to see in the village and surrounding mountain countryside our guests' cars often stay parked outside, and we enjoy the regular return of many of our visitors.

During the summer months guests make the most of living and eating outside (each apartment has its own private outside eating area) and there is plenty of opportunity to enjoy the communal gardens and pools with a choice of several places to sit in the shade under umbrellas and pergolas, or lounge in the sun, beside the pool or in the garden. We do not have central heating, but in the winter we enjoy a mountain climate often with warm days, and cool evenings around a blazing log fire (warm clothes are a must). Electric heaters and blankets make a winter stay cosy.It may rain heavily in the low season, so guests need to be prepared, but the mountain air, spectacular mists and occasional thunder storms make for a dramatic healthy climate.
In the Spring and Autumn, or house managers Alma and Jorrian who have a wide knowlege of the countryside and can tailor wonderful walks to suit your personal interest be it birdwatching, botanical, archaeological or simply fun.
