Further details outdoors

Enjoy the intimate wind sheltered garden, the hiking trails leading directly from the private property into the surrounding nature park area and along the wild, still virgin coast.

The Costa de la Luz region

Costa de la Luz.

One of the last virgin coasts of Europe, cristal clear waters, miles of unspoilt

white sandy beaches. 15 km distance to the mountainous coast of Africa.


Most southern town of the European continent, formally of great importance in the Moorish-Christian history of Spain (of which the old centre and the castle give evidence).

Tarifa today is a very versatile town, full of vital energy and with all kinds of interesting restaurants and shops, supermarkets and a traditional market hall.

Excursions to the most impressive cultural and historical sites of Western Andalusia.

Hiking, climbing and biking in the natural park. Horse riding.

All kinds of water sports.

Ornithological observations.

Dolphins and whale watch by boat.

Ferries to Tangier/ Morocco several times dailys, excursions.

"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.
