About this location
The Andalucia region
The Costa de la Luz has some of the best beaches in Andalucia and Tarifa is an end destination as the focal point for surfing and water sports in general. Being at the southernmost point in mainland Europe, guarantees over 300 days of sunshine a year. Tarifa and the Costa de la Luz still offer Old Spain in its towns and villages along its coastline, as well as culturally beautiful cities such as Cadiz and Jerez.
Whale watching is a favourite in the Tarifa locality as well as walking, cycling and horse riding on the beach or in the surrounding countryside.
Visit Tangier for the day by fast ferry and experience another culture and continent.
Along the coast you have Bolonia beach and the Baelo Claudia Roman ruins; Zahara de los Atunes; Vejer and Conil de la Frontera and Cadiz are all great places to visit.
Inland you have Jerez de la Frontera with Medina Sidonia.
Seville is accessible for a day trip,
The area is still unspoilt and offers much of what is left of authentic Spain. The whole coast line from Tarifa to Cadiz offers beautiful sands and the Atlantic ocean.
Jenny, the owner of Casa Ambrosia offers specialist trips for two and guests can choose places and activities they would like to experience and a tailor made trip can be organised to suit their taste and budget.
Transfers to and from Gibraltar airport are available, and rates for the trips and transfers can be obtained directly from the owner.
Spanish classes are also available.

"Winter sunshine in a great setting"
Casa Ambrosia is a delight and it is obvious that the owner, Jenny, cares about her guests and their stay at her special home in old town Tarifa. The quality double glazed windows make the house warmer in winter, as despite the glorious sunshine in the day, the nights can feel chilly. The bathroom is all new and everything is tasteful and nicely presented for visitors, throughout the property. The roof terrace is great and we started our days with coffee on the terrace and at night we enjoyed a night cap with the cute solar lights making it cosy. Jenny helped with information about places to visit and we especially enjoyed Tarifa old town, Vejer and Cadiz. We hope to return again for longer and Jenny with her generosity and her sweet house will be our first choice in this amazing corner of the world.

"charming tarifa townhouse"
I really loved this sweet house right in the center of old town tarifia, great to walk everywhere. I also used Jenny's guide service for a tailor made tour of Cadiz city center and tapa bar's she was so informative on Spanish traditions and culture. Will go back next year, the house is clean and comfortable and she is so helpful.
Good to know my tailor made trips for guests are being enjoyed. My many years in Spain and the language make it a pleasure to organise off the beaten track outings, as well as what guests have in mind either when they book or whilst they are staying at Casa Ambrosia.

"Lovely stay at Tarifa old town"
Casa Ambrosia is cosy and the owner has thought of everything for a very comfortable and enjoyable stay. The welcome drink is a nice touch. You can walk everywhere and
Tarifa old town is full of great tapas places and independent shops. The local beach is less than
10 minutes from the house and is fabulous for walking and taking the sun. Jenny is happy to arrange sightseeing trips if you are without transport and I used her services to have a wonderful day at Bolonia beach.
Casa Ambrosia is a new kid on the block where rentals are concerned, and I think Jenny has got it just right.

"A taste of authentic Spain"
Our stay in Casa Ambrosia was very enjoyable and the owner, Jenny, made every effort to ensure we had a welcome break. Tarifa town is really bustling and we appreciated being so close to all the amenities. The historic old town offers great tapas and restaurants, as well as plenty of sunny terraces to enjoy an early evening drink. The local beaches are marvellous. We slept comfortably enough despite being in the town and it was fun to wake up to the sounds of a typical Spanish town. The local indoor market has a great deli and the fresh fish was amazing. Jenny offers transfers from Gibraltar airport and we will take her up on it next time around as we hardly used the car, there was so much to do in Tarifa. Thank you again for a great stay and we can heartily recommend the cute and cosy accommodation as well as what Tarifa has to offer. We will definitely be back!

"A perfect base in the historic old town of Tarifa"
New to rentals, the owner of Casa Ambrosia has got a gem in Tarifa old town. A stand alone house which is unusual in itself with no shared spaces. A regular visitor to this part of the world I value security and comfort above all and this unique place offers both. Opposite is the Girasol Mexican restaurant which is handy for a nice meal or nightcap and has good WIFI. Tarifa old town is not for those wanting tranquillity or peace and quiet but during the day on the sunny roof terrace at Casa Ambrosia it gets pretty close. At night there is street level noise but Jenny, the owner, is working towards sound proofing her property. I wish her many happy return guests and I will definitely be one of them.
It is good to know that guests feel secure as well as comfortable at Casa Ambrosia. Tarifa old town is a busy place during the main months and noise can be an issue at times. The newly opened Girasol Mexican across the way serves good food at reasonable prices and has the added advantage of WIFI. However, as locals and holiday makers dine late, especially in the summer months, I am in the process of organising the fitting of sound proofed windows to the property to ensure my guests continue to enjoy the Tarifa experience in comfort.
