Set amongst stunning scenery on the Costa de La Luz, Huerta Las Terrazas is the perfect relaxing holiday destination. Bordering the national park of Los Alcornocales, the Casita offers unparalleled views over the Straits of Gibraltar and Morocco. Within easy reach are the unspoilt beaches of Zahara, ancient Roman ruins in Bolonia and cosmopolitan Tarifa, renowned for wind and kite surfing.
The Casita is a self contained cottage that stands alone and offers privacy away from the main house. Set in 3 acres, seven terraces offer areas of sanctuary and beauty. Relax under the shade of the cork trees or sunbathe by fragrant mimosa. Towering palms, vibrant flowers, fig, orange and pear trees enrich the lush grounds. The pool is constantly replenished with fresh spring water that descends from the mountainous backdrop.
The Casita is comfortably furnished with a double bedroom, a bathroom and a small galley kitchen equipped for basic self catering requirements. It sleeps 2 but can take an extra bed for a child. The Casita has its own terrace where you can spend the late afternoons watching the golden light of the sun catch the mountains across the Gibraltar Straits whilst enjoying a bottle of wine. As evening falls, you can gaze at the stars above and see the twinkling lights of Morocco in the distance.
Guests staying in the Casita have access to the beautiful gardens and swimming pool.

The Costa de La Luz is rich in nature, bird life and the countryside provides a wealth of opportunities to walk, climb, ride and explore its vantage points. The area is one of the last unspoilt coastlines of Spain and is characterised by the miles of incredible beaches that run from Tarifa to Cadiz.
Huerta Las Terrazas' position offers a great base to explore this Costa that includes the stunning city of Seville, the sherry town of Jerez and the ancient provincial capital of Cadiz. Wind around the hills of Andalucia to visit the white villages that cling to hillsides or to have an altogether different experience and take a day trip from Tarifa across to Morocco and discover a different continent.
Huerta Las Terrazas is a ten minute drive to the ancient town of historical Tarifa. Its geographical location provides the perfect wind conditions for windsports enthusiasts that come from all over the world. Their approach to life has stamped Tarifa with a very cosmopolitan, laid back character, that maintains a very Spanish feel. Within the original walls of the port town you can find a wealth of bars and restaurants, offering something for everyone – traditional tapas to hip interiors. The cobbled streets lead you past boutiques, surf shops, coffee bars and into the market, which bustles with life. The beginning of September says goodbye to the holiday makers and Tarifa stages a week long fiesta which is well worth witnessing.
Huerta Las Terrazas lies directly in the path of one of the most crucial migration routes in Europe, millions of birds migrating in and out of Africa, south in Autumn and north in Spring, are funnelled through the narrow sea crossing and over the hills close to the house.
