El Olivo, Total tranquillity and space.
On a hill near La Muela, the spacious, clean cottage is in the centre of 1.6 hectares of the finca. Here, you will have peace and quiet, spectacular views to the Atlantic and setting sun.
Imagine sitting in your own private pool, with a refreshing drink, with the aroma of freshly picked vegetables on your barbecue as you watch the sun setting over the Atlantic Ocean.
Finca Higueron is situated on the Costa de la Luz, Spain's southern Atlantic coast, halfway between Tarifa and Cadiz. The accommodation consists of two detached, private one bedroom cottages.
Just, fifteen minutes from the white Moorish village of Vejer de la frontera and ten minutes from the beautiful beach at Conil.
Positioned on top of a hill, 190 meters above sea level, the finca has spectacular all round panoramic views and being three kilometres from the centre of the nearest village, La Muela, the two cottages are an idyllic venue for either a wonderful beach holiday, a quiet relaxing holiday, or both.
El Olivo is a purpose built cottage that has been designed to provide both space and comfort for two people, with a fold away bed in the lounge for a third person.
The private patio, with a shaded area, looks to the west; there is a 2m X 2m mini pool with integral seating to offer complete relaxation while watching the setting sun.
The bedroom and lounge windows face southwest and provide our guests with spectacular views to the Atlantic Ocean.

About this location
The Andalucia region
Before EU investment in the local motorway network, the Costa de la Luz (Coast of Light) despite its wonderful beaches and beautiful scenery was a well kept secret, with very few holiday makers. Now it has become the holiday playground for the Spanish and you will experience a truly authentic Spanish holiday, as this spectacular coastline is a popular destination for mainly Spanish people. The area is ideal for relaxing on long sandy beaches, and enjoying real Spanish cuisine in restaurants or tapas bars. For the more adventurous it offers some of the best conditions in the world for surfing, kite surfing and windsurfing; also cycling is a very popular sport / pastime in the area, with a large network of roads and tracks. The Costa de la Luz is not just a summer destination, it's a place to visit all year round as there are lots of carnivals and festivals to enjoy, plus many beautiful and historical places that you can also discover at your leisure.
Surfing, wind surfing and kite surfing lessons can be arranged.
Detailed cycle routes, cycles and crash helmets are available
Places that we recommend include CADIZ by boat, into the old town from EL PUERTO DE SANTA MARIA.where Columbus set sail for the Americas in a vessel named after the town. JEREZ - home of the famous Royal School of Equestrian Art and the centre of the world's sherry production. TARIFA - Moorish walled town, looking like mini Marrakech, hosts world windsurfing championships. From here boats take you to Morocco or whale and dolphin watching in the Straits of Gibraltar. MEDINA SIDONIA - the Duke of Medina Sidonia led the Spanish Armada's attack on England. Spectacular views over the area from its walls. SEVILLE -which is the capital of Andalucia is famous for its cathedral, Al Cazabars, tapas and spacious parks and walks.
Vejer de la Frontera
Finca Higueron is on the outskirts of La Muela a small village halfway between Vejer de la Frontera and Conil dela Frontera. In walking distance (2.2km) the nearest bar provides traditional Andalucian country food and there are two further ventas in the centre of the village (3km). There is a famous (with the Spanish) Italian restaurant that provides great value for money meals as well as a takeaway service. Also nearby in Patria (3km) there is a Hotel and Danish restaurant that provide excellent cuisine.
Vejer is one of Andalicia's most famous pueblos blancos and even though it is steeped in tradition it is a very popular venue for the rich and famous, with wonderful restaurants and bars and views that are memorable. During the summer many bars and shops open for the season.
El Palmar –known locally as Vejer Costa is popular with surfers and kite-surfers all year round. El Palmar has seven kilometres of golden-sand for those wishing to do what they like doing most during their summer holiday, there is also a more secluded stretch for naturists'
Even though it is a working town in the winter, Conil de la Frontera is nothing less than a fun summer holiday resort with a fantastic beach, with beach bars open 24 hours a day during the height of the holiday season. The town in a buzz of restaurants, bars and ice-cream parlours built into the old town. It is a pueblo blanco with narrow winding streets with small traditional shops selling new products with an old style service. Although not in town, Conil's fishing port along with local vegetable farming is the hub of it's all year round business, which is enjoyed by visitors to the area.
