**ESPAÑOL** UBICACIÓN: La casita es situada cerca al torre nueva (principal), donde la carretera de playa gira, a 150m del restaurante 'La Dolce Vita' y Venta El Morito. La casa cuenta con nuevos electrodomésticos, como nevera, sofá, lavadora, todos comprados en 2013, y una muy buena directora, quien trabaja en la zona desde hace muchos años. AHORA tenemos WIFI !!
Not highly developed - think sand-dunes and super laid-back bars and restaurants, but with a chemist, supermarkets and take-out pizza & other good restaurants on hand (summertime). Fantastic artisan market, surf schools, kite-surfing, golf courses, and horse-riding are some of the more active things available locally. Stylish bars are scattered along this coastline all the way to Tarifa (e.g. Canos de Meca), catering to the funky Madrid crowds that come here in August in their droves. Its worth renting a car, to give you access to so many interesting places in the area.
A 5 minute drive into Conil offers many, many restaurants. bars and action. Local cafe has free-wifi.
Generally fantastic, but can sometimes get the wind from Africa (El Levante). Plenty of other things to do on such days - certain beaches are protected from the wind, or explore the beautiful white-washed local towns of Vejer & Conil - or venture further afield to Cadiz, Jerez, Gibraltar, or Seville. In winter the average temperature is 16-20 degrees.

About this location
The Andalucia region
The best months to visit are June/July and September/October because the average daily temperature ranges from 23-27degC and you'll miss the (v busy) Spanish holidays in August. Here, temperatures jump to 30-35degC, and at times the midday sun can be quite fierce. Outside the traditional holiday period, Easter is a very popular time as the fields of sunflowers are in full bloom and the local residents celebrate in style with many street parties and traditional baby bull runs through the streets of Vejer. During late March and April, the temperatures are very pleasant, averaging 20-22degC
The area has not suffered from the over-development that characterises some of the other Spanish Costas despite having some of the most spectacular beaches in Spain, backed, not by ribbons of development, but by sand dunes, marshland, farmland and dense pine forests. With an average of 3200 hours of sunshine per year (the highest in Spain) and cooling sea breezes off the Atlantic ocean, it is a haven for holidays at all times of the year.
Between late June and early September, the Costa de la Luz is still largely the preserve of Spanish holidaymakers. Out of high summer season (and except for Easter) there are few tourists, though the weather in Spring and Autumn is often perfect.
There are three surf schools operating in El Palmar (mostly out of high season). There are also several 18 hole golf courses in Roche, and the stunning 36 hole Severiano Ballesteros designed golf course at Novo Sancti Petri. Kite-surfing is very popular along this stretch of coast, particularly in Tarifa.
Eating out - The choice locally (including Conil) ranges from beach shacks to haute cuisine. The prices vary accordingly, but generally it is cheap to eat out (although beach front restaurants in El Palmar have definitely increased in price in the last couple of years). There are numerous restaurants along the beach road. Remember that the Spaniards eat late in the evening - often after 10 at night, so dont expect restaurants to open before 8pm. Children are always welcome and sharing of plates is normal. Just order something and then order something else. Take a dictionary because not all restaurants have menus in English (though many do). Go where the Spaniards go and enjoy!!
Self-catering is easy with local shops, supermarkets, hypermarkets and even shopping malls all within walking and driving distance.

"Lovely little house a stones throw from the beach and bars"
We stayed here for a winter getaway with our 6 month old daughter. The house itself was spotlessly clean and had was well stocked with everything we needed. The wood burner was great and we found it… More

Für Familien mit Wellenreitenden Kinder wegen der Nähe zu den Surf Schulen prima gelegen. 2 Schlafzimmer und alles wie beschrieben und auf den Fotos zu sehen. Auch spätes Ankommen war kein Problem… More
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. I hope you had some good weather, and that your daughter enjoyed the surfing. I look forward to my own children being old enough to do that!

"I love Cadiz"
This is an area that I think has the most beautiful beaches in Spain. Kilometers of fine sand, clear water and of course good weather. I try to go every year if I have at least a week off. Many good restaurants with fresh fish and seafood.
At "casa de Alison" we were really comfortable. The house is fully equipped with everything necessary for a good holiday, especially the BBQ in yard is a must for these occasions. Just 5 minutes walk from "el Palmar", one of the best preserved beaches in the Spanish coast.
