Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
The flat is located in the old town of Tarifa, situated close to the port and a stones throw away from the Alameda. Although the exterior is in need of renovation it has a charming central courtyard typical of the Casa de Vecinos (neighbour/community house). The flat is situated on the first floor and boasts tall ceilings, giving it a lofty and spacious appeal.
It has 2 bedrooms, one double and a single with 2 beds (one of them on a maisonette). The larger bedroom has a balcony looking onto the street leading up to the market. There is also a double sofa-bed in the living room so can accommodate another 2 people.
The tall double glazed windows will shut out the hustle and bustle of the night time activity the old town provides for its night time goers. Ideal for those looking for action during the summer months (bear in mind during the siesta hours the town is dead to the world as everyone catches up on some sleep – they're either on the beach or at home resting).
The open plan living room is large with a fully kitted modern kitchen at one end and a sofa bed and armchair at the other. A spacious area framed by the large central arch, an original Moorish architectural feature.
Although the bathroom is small it is decorated with lavish stuccoed walls, enhancing the Moorish feeling of the apartment.
All of the town's central amenities are a stones throw from the apartment. From the market at the end of the road to all the bars, great restaurants and clubs Tarifa old town has to offer, and a 5 min walk to the town beach.
Tarifa is THE place for kitesurfing, windsurfing, stand-up paddle surfing... also horse riding along the beaches, mountain biking, whale watching and much more...

The Costa de la Luz region
Reaching out into the sea, the southernmost point in Europe and the closest point to Africa, Tarifa is one of the coastal towns with the greatest tourist renown, having become an authentic Mecca for windsurfers. Besides its numerous prehistoric remains (such as the naturalistic paintings in the Moro Cave, and the necropolis at Los Algarbes), there are not only Phoenician remains on the Island of Las Palomas but also remains from the Roman period, with the archaeologically important town of Baelo Claudia, considered the most important find in the province. Called Al-Yazirat Tarif (Tarif Island) by the Muslims, this was an important strategic point as frontier zone, stronghold against pirate forays and military site opposite the English occupied Gibraltar It is possible to see two separate sections of the town walls from the dating from the 10th-16th centuries: the first section is from the Islamic period and surrounded a smaller area whilst the second surrounds almost the entire historic town centre.
