Casa Julio Verne
Townhouse | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
This beautifully restored house offers quality, space and comfort. The views from the terraces of Morocco and Gibraltar are breathtaking. The lounge is huge and has a wireless internet connection, flat screen TV and lots of DVDs, books & games. The beamed dining room has an open fire place and a table to seat 8 people. Cool off in the pool which is situated in the typical Andalusian patio in the centre of the house and measures 7 metres by 3 metres.
The location can not be beaten; situated in the southwest tip of Andalucia there is something for everyone. Fabulous national park which has great walking and is a bird watchers paradise, stunning unspoilt beaches both on the Costa de la Luz and the Costa del Sol and some of the best golf courses in Europe. In summer you will be very grateful to be near the sea as inland is scorching and our local beaches don't get the galeforce winds of the west coast.
Without doubt Casa Julio Verne is a fabulous house set in a wonderful part of "real Spain".
NB. There are cheap flights into Gibraltar this summer (just 15 minutes away) from the UK, please check.

|Further details outdoors|
The property has a garage for one medium sized car and there is parking most of the day on the square outside the house.
There are many stairs in the house and it is on different levels, so you may not consider this house suitable for the elderly or very young children who are not used to stairs, however we do have a child ourselves so there is a stair gate on the main staircase and most importantly, the door to the pool can be locked.
The Andalucia region
The province has some of the most beautiful unspoilt beaches in Spain, great golf courses and the stunning Los Alcornacales national park which is a haven for walking and bird watching.
Whales and dolphins can be seen in the straits off Tarifa.
Seville has some of the most beautiful architecture in Spain and Jerez has numerous sherry bodegas and the school of the famous "dancing horses".
Go up the rock of Gibraltar, absorb its history and see the apes and siege tunnels.
San Roque is a traditional charming village with great value tapas bars and restaurants within a few minutes walking distance. The bullring, which has its own museum, is one of the oldest in Andalucia. San Roque has its own carnival, ferias and an impressive Easter procession.
Although in the centre of the old town Casa Julio Verne is tucked away in a very quiet street so there is no road noise.
Within 10 minutes drive, there is a choice of quiet beaches, including the stunning Alcaidesa beach, which has an EU blue flag. Tarifa and the west coast are just 30 minutes away.
Travel 10 minutes inland to the spectacular Los Alcornocales National Park, with its picture-postcard pueblos blancos - white villages - nestled into the hillsides and turquoise lakes, for superb walking and bird-watching.

The building in question has been renovated and painted. As stated in our response to this client's earlier review, the 'boarded up' doorway was where our neighbours were putting in a garage door. It was plastered and re-painted within a few days.
We were very disappointed that the clients were unhappy about our neighbours' property; we took a loss of 50% of the cost of rent. They are the only clients to complain about the location in our seven years of business in this traditional Spanish town - all our other guests have been very happy.

"A taste of traditional Spain with a warm and friendly welcome ."
I visited San Roque with my golfing friends in April this year.This was our fifth annual visit to Casa Julio Verne.The house is very comfortable and spacious with wonderful views of Gibralter from the roof terrace . San Roque itself is very pretty and we always receive a warm welcome in the local tapas bar.
Our every need is catered for in this beautiful traditional Spanish home and look forward to our sixth visit in 2013.
It's always really great to see you fun ladies. Hope to see you next year!

We stayed at Casa Julio Verne for a week as we were attending a wedding in Tarifa. We had the most amazing time and have come home with some fond memories! This house is beautiful and we spent most of our evenings on the roof terrace overlooking the sea and Gibralter! We would recommend to anyone and everyone!! As well as being picturesque it was also excellent value for money and we look forward to planning our next trip there! Thank you Rose!!
We are very happy that you enjoyed the house and your holiday so much. Thank you.
