Casa Estoque is a beautiful villa set in secluded private gardens, minutes from the beach and the wonderfully traditional town of Chiclana de la Frontera. When you stay with us you get that super beach based holiday while also enjoying all the splendour of a true Spanish culture. This lovely villa is an ideal holiday home from home for you and your family. It is all on one level, so no stairs to negotiate.
As you enter, the house is lovely and light and the corridor leads to a bright and sunny lounge with large comfortable sofas and a super bay window. English tv, dvd and music system. Wireless internet is provided free of charge. There is also a dining area (which is rarely used as most people like to sit outside). Along the corridor is a fully fitted kitchen complete with dish washer and washing machine, microwave, two fridges with freezer compartments and all the customary gadgets. In here is also a small breakfast table. A door leads straight out to a covered eating area fantastic for evening meals and breakfast al fresco.
There are three good sized airconditioned bedrooms. The master bedroom has a large en suite bathroom with a corner bath/shower, toilet and bidet and windows facing out into the garden, lovely to wake up to in the morning. Two more bedrooms, one with twin beds and the other a double bed. Both have large fitted cupboards.
The family bathroom is spacious with bath with shower over, toilet and bidet.
The villa is set in the quiet residential area of El Sotillo which is perfectly set between the town and the beach.
In the tranquil gardens is a great 8 x 4 metre swimming pool with roman steps to get in easily ( a must for small children or the less able) The garden is enclosed by a high wall, fencing and shrubs and has an electric pedestrian gate and a roller running car access gate.
The garden is lawned around the pool area and we have a lovely BBQ, perfect for dining alfresco.
We also have a large covered porch area with comfortable seating, perfect for chilling out with a cool glass of sangria or beer. Here is a dining area, for those who prefer to eat in the shade.
We are 4 minutes by car to the beach which means you can enjoy all the joys of the seaside, but not the noise when you just want to relax in your own garden. There are 3 supermarkets just down the road, including Lidel and Mercadona. There are several Spanish ventas and restaurants and also a pharmacy nearby.

Our Villa is on the Costa de la Luz- the coast of light. So called because it is so sunny and the light is something special. In this province of Andalucia you can discover a true taste of Spanish life. Traditions such as flamenco dancing and tapas are wonderful here.
The beaches are glorious ranging from the perfect family beach with swathes of sandy shores and gentle seas, to the rugged coastline dominated by majestic cliffs and secret coves which are fantastic for snorkelling and fishing. It is on the Atlantic ocean which is beautifully clear and aquamarine in colour.
The winter is short with plenty of sunshine so we spend lots of time out of doors – strolling along the sandy beaches, playing golf, sailing, going to one of the many local festivals or my favourite - simply sitting on the terrace of a bar, enjoying the local food and wine.
Festivals - such fun. Ladies and children and men dress in colourful flamenco costumes, many riding on beautiful horses. Its a great chance to enjoy unusual tapas, drink the local sherries and dance or just watch the locals dance Sevillanas, the traditional flamenco dance. It is such a great experience.
The best things about this coast are the glorious beaches, unspoilt towns and villages, dramatic sunsets and huge nature reserves. You may not find an all-night foam party but you can dance on the beach till dawn, sample the locally made sherries and savour some of the best food in Spain.
If golf is what you are looking for then Andalucia is a must! There are 10 golf courses, including 4 championship courses, all between 5 and 40 minutes drive from the villa. You can hire a car yourself or we can organise a full package for you including transportation. Your clubs will always be fully secure inside our gated walls. Chiclana one of the sunniest places in Spain and has ideal weather for golf.
We can arrange all your golf for you before you come.
So much to see so little time to see it
Chiclana is an typical old Andalucian town with an interesting history and access to some of the best beaches in all of Spain. The town has a wide range of shops as well as bars, restaurants, markets and sherry bodegas. In the town centre you'll find narrow streets and courtyards filled with flowers - typical of this region of Spain.
The centre, located around the town hall square and the covered market, is bustling and lively. The market has an array of fruit and vegetables, fish and meat stalls. Also a weekly market with all your holiday must buys!
Casa Estoque is an excellent base for touring Andalusia. Seville, Gibraltar, Bolonia, Caños de Meca and the Pueblos Blancos all a great day out and not far away. Here are a few of my favourite things to do:
1. Watch the fantastic horse show in Jerez..
2. Take the ferry over to Morocco, Africa for the day
3. Drive to Gibraltar (90 mins)
4. Visit Jerez (40 mins), for its flamenco, sherry & brandy bodegas!
5. For the kids there is the Isla Magica theme park in Seville, a zoo and crocodile farm in Jerez and a waterpark in Puerto de Santa Maria (and don´t forget crabbing in the rock pools)
6. Drive into the mountains and visit a (pueblo blanco) white village like Arcos de La Frontera .
7. Take a boat trip up the Guadalquivir river to the Donana natural
8. Visit Bolonia and see the ancient Roman ruins .
9. Go to the oldest city in Europe, Cadiz, and explore an enchanting spider web of narrow alleyways dotted with atmospheric tavernas
10. Watch a fantastic flamenco show whilst eating tapas on a warm sultry evening
