The Costa de la Luz region
The Costa de la Luz region: La Barrosa Blue Flag beach has 8 kilometres of beautiful silver sand on which there is also horse riding, or take out a jet ski, or simply stroll to one of the superb fish restaurants. Excellent, fine sand beaches are close at Conil, El Palmar, Trafalgar and a marina at nearby Sancti Petri.
There is plenty to interest the keen ecologist, with a mirador just 600 yards from the villa overlooking the inland Bay of Cadiz. Whale and dolphin watching are offered between Tarifa and Morocco from day boats, and within a day's drive is the spectacular Donana Nature Reserve, with a unique opportunity to see the last pairs of breeding black eagles and wild boar. This is the largest wetland reserve in Europe.
For those wanting some retail therapy, spectacular Seville and duty-free Gibraltar cater for all tastes. There is a fresh produce market on each weekday in Chiclana, which itself has lots of shopping opportunities, as does nearby Novo Sancti Petri. There is also plenty of night-life within seven kilometers at Barrosa, Cadiz, San Fernando and Jerez.
Sancti Petri, Conil and district: Seville boasts some of the finest architecture in Spain, including a magnificent gothic cathedral, the final resting place of Christopher Columbus. The magnificent Grand Palace at Plaza Espana is unforgettable and the city was host to both the 1929 and 1992 Expos. Seville is the spiritual home of flamenco guitar, opera and the art of the matador, having one of the largest and grandest bull-rings in Spain, while the sensational 'Isla Magica' theme park caters for the young at heart. Meander through the cobbled streets, sip a robust vino tinto in one the many authentic tapas bars, and sample the famous Iberian ham.
'El Circuito de Velocidad' at Jerez offers a full programme of motor sport - A premier speedway in Spain. Jerez also hosts the famous Andalusian horse fair every May - a fantastic colourful two week pageant of equestian art and colourful fiesta.
Sports enthusiasts can enjoy a PADI drive centre at Conil, and a large family Waterpark at Porto Santa Maria. The well preserved Roman remains, mosaics and amphitheatre of Bolonia town are unforgettable, overlooking the sea just south of Vejer, and a visit often forms one day of an itinerary for many guests visiting "La Brisa"
