The 5 holiday homes are set in a new african-mediterranean style building that nestles in pastures between mature trees only 50 metres from the beach. You have private access to the beach via a short track that passes beautiful horses and the odd chicken and turkey. The Beach is wide and sandy with a few rock pool areas to explore and washed clean twice a day by a pristine deep blue Atlantic ocean. This definitely is a piece of secret Spain.
Zahora Beach - 3000 metres long and 40 metres wide – is in the Cape of Trafalgar (next to the Caños de Meca). The beach, with its fine sand and ideal wind conditions, is perfect for Windsurfing, Sailing and, occasionally, Surf and Bodyboard. The beach starts in the area of Mangueta where, in the middle of the last century, the old Civil Guards Headquarters used to be located (the building has since been knocked down) and it comes to an end at the famous Trafalgar Lighthouse.
Besides the wonderful sunsets, the most spectacular aspect of this beach is the huge reef that appears at low tide, together with the formation of an enormous lagoon with shallow water, where the youngest members of the family can enjoy bathing in complete safety. Fishing is also very popular on this beach, especially on the reef mentioned above.
Without doubt, Zahora is an ideal place to spend a holiday, whether as a family, with a partner, or unaccompanied. The area offers all essential services, thus ensuring nobody is in need of anything. The beauty of Zahora can be appreciated from all angles. A leisurely stroll at dusk, the breathtaking sunset, a restful siesta and the abundance of nature make Zahara a perfect place to spend some unforgettable days. Quality of life in abundance.

CASARA is 5 minutes from the Natural Park of Acantilado and Pinar de Barbate. It is an authentic, ecological treasure of the area. It is a forest that was created artificially at the end of the 19th century after carrying out a reforestation process, in order to preserve the dry, sandy earth.
However, the park is not just a forest; it also boasts a coast line of considerable natural and scenic value and majestic cliffs, up to 100 metres high, which provide shelter to a great representation of Mediterranean avifauna. The Natural Park of Acantilado and Pinar de Barbate is not too big to explore and it is possible to plans all types of excursions: on foot, by bike or on horse.
Visitors cannot miss making a trip to the Torre de Meca, situated to the west of the park. The watchtower, 170 metres high, stands on the summit of the mountain with the same name. The tower can be reached by following the old Barbate road (that circles the mountain before joining the current local road which runs from Caños to Barbate) and taking a right-turn at the summit.
Another option is to continue on as far as the Torre del Tajo. There are two ways to reach the tower: either by road, turning right at a signposted turning before reaching Barbate, or from Los Caños, by walking through the pine forest, going along the edge of the cliffs up to the tower. The area of the Tajo is especially interesting. Fences have been placed on the cliffs and from this height visitors are offered the opportunity to contemplate the wonderful view: the vastness of the sea, the reefs under the cliffs, the coast of Barbate and Zahara and, on clear days, it is possible to make out the coast of northern Africa, from Tangier to Yebel Musa.
Cádiz is the province with the highest number of protected areas in the whole of Andalusia. Birds are the most characteristic animals in the province, since it is on the path of the great migrations towards Africa. Many of the species are in danger of extinction and the natural parks allow the birds to reproduce in an ideal environment.
