Round houses are unusual. We do not know why it was built or for what purpose and when we took over our property it was an empty shell. With the help of a local building company we converted this shell into a charming, cosy comfortable studio, which our guests love.
The two large double doors face the south, so the inside is always bright and sunny, unless you close the "tapaluzes" or inside shutters, which many guests do at night to prevent their "long lie" being spoiled by the morning sunlight. The studio is not big but there is a large terrace on the south side which acts as an extra dining room and lounge. From here you have a wonderful view through our garden to the Straits of Gibraltar and to Morocco in the distance.
The Round House has an unusual bathroom with shower, a Moroccan style queen size bed, which doubles up as a sofa and a typical Andalusian style, well equipped kitchen.
Ideal for couples or for singles who want a peaceful holiday in a beautiful location and if they wish a chat with the owners.

About this location
The Andalucia region
The western part of Andalusia is beautiful. The mountainous areas are very sparsely populated and contain several Natural Parks, the largest being the Cork Oak Natural Park. This area is home to the white villages where the Moorish influence can still be seen .
The Atlantic beaches with their fine golden sand are amongst the best in Europe The main city in the region is Cadiz which is not high on the tourist trail but is in our opinion underrated and definitely worth a visit. In the summer it is pleasant close to the sea but too warm in the hinterland. For this reason many people from Seville have second homes in and around Tarifa where they spend their holidays and weekends in the summer. If you are interested in touring in the beautiful hinterland,the best time to enjoy the coast and the hinterland is in Spring and Autumn. Throughout the summer each village or town has it's annual "Feria" or festival where people dress up in traditional Andalusian costume and where there is dancing (flamenco) music and fun for a
Tarifa is a quaint fishing village at the southernmost point of Mainland Europe and is situated between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. As a result it has a very temperate climate. In the winter it is 10C to 15C warmer than in Northern Europe, in summer it is seldom above 30 C and almost never rains. In the spring and autumn it is pleasanty warm with the occasional shower of rain. In recent years Tarifa has become a very popular tourist destination particularly for young kite and wind surfers. Other popular sports in the area are hiking, horse riding, rock climbing, mountain bike riding, scuba diving, paddle board, tennis and golf.
The Tarifa Feria is held during the first week in September. It is not a tourist event but a festival by the locals for the locals and anyone else who wishes to participate. Horses are at the centre of many of the Feria events.
There is a huge variety of restaurants and bars in Tarifa and in the evenings there is a wonderful, happy atmosphere in the town.
The recent creation of the Straits of Gibraltar Natural Park ensures that the coastline to the east and west of Tarifa will remain undeveloped in the future.
