The Costa de la Luz region
The Costa de la Luz is the last remaining unspoilt coastline with chrystal clear seas, golden sandy beaches and wide open spaces; a popular destination for Spaniards and foreigners alike. It is literally the 'Coast of Light'. You can wake up and break fast to dazzling sunlight playing on the rippling sea and after a hard day on the beach sip cocktails watching the most amazing sunsets.
Apart from a few rainy days in October/November or March/April, winters are mild with temperatures still reaching 18 degrees C in December and January. In a sheltered spot you can sunbathe year round. A cold day is when the temperature drops to 12 degrees! From May through to September it's warm and sunny with maximum temperatures up to 35 degrees occasionally.
If you enjoy driving, you'll love the traffic free roads and wide open countryside and exploring the many 'White Villages' in their hilltop positions with commanding views all around. Vejer, Benalup, Medina Sidonia and Arcos de La Frontera are all short drives from the coast. Further inland is an area like the Lake District - Sierra de Grazelema - the wettest part of Spain within the Parque de Alcornocales - the most extensive cork oak forest in Europe.
In the old fishing villages like Tarifa, Barbate and Conil tuna fishing takes place every Spring using the exact same methods as the Phoenecians centuries ago.
Everywhere there are signs of the past, best seen at the Roman Ruins in Baelo Claudia and the Moorish castle in Tarifa.
Tarifa is 'The Adventure Capital of Europe' and a mecca for windsurfers and kitesurfers.
There are no English bars and restaurants.
But if you enjoy extreme sports, outdoor pursuits and the simple things in life - walks along the beach or birdwatching in the countryside or whale watching -and want to get back to nature, you'll love Tarifa, the surrounding area and the people here.
When you're bored with Tarifa, you're probably getting bored with life.
The old town - 'Casco Antiguo' - is a warren of narrow white cobbled streets, opening on to delightful small squares, with a 'Tapas' bar on every corner and restaurants offering the best of local produce. 'Organic' must have been invented here as it's all the local market and spice shops have ever sold.
There's an old Moorish castle, recently renovated, a colourful fishing harbour (no luxury yachts here) but with daily whale watching trips and regular fast ferries to Tangiers just 35 mins away.
Just a few kms out of town are some of the best and cleanest beaches in Europe with plenty of room for everybody, even in the Summer; with windsurfers, kitesurfers and sunbathers each respecting their zones. No laying out your towels and bagging a sun bed here; there aren't any.
You'll find a guide to all this and more in the property along with the latest copy of Costa de La LUz Vida magazine.
Local activities include golf, tennis, watersports, diving, whale watching, fishing, birdwatching, horse riding, hiking, rockclimbing, mountain biking, quadbiking, hanggliding and microlite flying.
