"All you could wish for...and more!"
We received a warm welcome to this beautifully restored and well presented apartment in a wonderful setting. We found the facilities met all our needs and were as stated on the website. Access via the track was straightforward at low speed in a standard car. Walking into town along the coast was a delight (it took only 10 minutes). The elevated position affords stunning views to Tarifa and across the Straits to Morocco, and the house and garden provide shelter from wind and sun (if required). Our visit was timed to coincide with the southern migration of birds returning to Africa and the apartment was in an ideal location to experience this annual spectacle. The owners were very friendly and helpful, offering their knowledge on the local history of the house and the area. We will definitely be returning to this or any of the other properties owned by this couple in the future.
