A large and majestic home available at the Molino, Casa Carmen is spread over two floors offering three decadent bedrooms and a sumptuous open plan living area with double height ceiling.
Sleeping six in total, each bedroom has a vaulted ceiling and stunning views of the village and Rif mountains of Africa. Two have patio doors opening onto juliette balconies and the third is encompassed by large panels of sliding glass, to let the outside in. The main bedroom also has the benefit of air-conditioning.
En-suite facilities, which include a Moroccan spa bathroom complete with recessed bath, are to be found in the two main bedrooms. The third bedroom (with sofa bed), accessed through the second bedroom, is ideal for children of the family. Alternatively, it can be used as a sunroom in which to enjoy the 180 degree views of the village, its castle, the mountains and coastline.
The apartment contains the original machinery from when the Molino was a working olive mill. The presses, pumps, grinding stones and olive mats are still in situ. The soft furnishings complement the traditional features and the kilim rugs and Moroccan lights throughout, add a touch of exotica.
Outside the wisteria bedecked Mirador offers splendid and spacious seating around a marble table – large enough to seat 20! Relaxing on the beds of the Mirador, soaking up some sun or simply taking in the uninterrupted views is the perfect way to experience Gaucin.
Additional facilities include a fully equipped rustic kitchen, air-conditioning in the main living area, a separate WC on the ground floor, office area with internet connection, satellite TV and own entrance through studded antique double doors.

"Carmen's moods were like the weather of our country. Among our mountains a storm is never so near as when the sun shines brightest."
(Don José of Carmen)
