The Andalucia region


Andalucia is the true home of typically Spanish experiences. Bullfighting, flamenco, tapas, guitar, all began in Andalucía and remain deeply embedded here. Other aspects of Spanish life take on their most extreme forms here: Andalucian fiestas are the noisiest and most colourful (do you know Seville’s Feria de Abril?), Easter processions have more pageantry, the summer heat is more broiling, the people are at their most vivacious, fun-loving and family-oriented. The coastal tourist resorts are the most densely crowded in the whole country, though you may be able to find a beach to yourself along the Costa de la Luz and Cadiz province if you like.

In Andalucía you will see the jewels of Islamic architecture, Granada’s Alhambra and Cordoba’s mezquita. The region also has a fabulous heritage of cathedrals, palaces and castles from later eras. Contemporary Andalucía is ever more cosmopolitan and fashionable, with towns and cities like Seville, Cordoba, Cadiz and Malaga, full of stylish restaurants and pumping nightlife maintaining their historic charm.

Andalucía is a land of surprises: pristine beaches, inland green hills, white villages, huge nature reserves (one-fifth of Andalucian territory is under environmental protection), and the snowcapped highest mountain in Spanish, the Sierra Nevada.


Cádiz is an elegant, old port city of largely 18th century construction. Cádiz is crammed onto the head of a promontory like an ocean-going ship, and the tang of salty air and ocean vistas are never far away. It has a long and fascinating history, absorbing monuments and museums and enjoyable places. The people of Cádiz, the gaditanos, make the place truly special: warm, open, cultured gaditanos are concerned chiefly to enjoy life, whether simply enjoying each other’s company in the city’s bars or plazas, or indulging in Spain’s most riotous spring carnival.



Betis is a very small place of only about 30 house just half way between Tarifa and Bolonia, at the base of Sierra de San Bartolome, in front of the mountains of the Parque Natural de los Alcornocales. In the aldea there are still some old farmers who let their cattle walk around freely during the day so don’t be surprised if you meet cows, horses, donkeys and other animals crossing your road.

For lovers of climbing, in the area there are also more than 60 climbing routes, both for beginners and for more experienced people.

For birdwachers Tarifa is the crossing area for birds from Europe to Africa


Tarifa is a little fishing town, whose name origins from an early Moorish invader, Tarif Ibn Malik, who led a raid in 710. It is considered the windsurfing capital of Europe and is located in the straits of Gibraltar between northern Africa and southern Europe, where the meeting of the Mediterranean and Atlantic create almost constantly-blowing strong western breezes. Tarifa is the only european town who each morning weak up looking at Africa

Local fishermen still use the Almadraba method of fishing, a practice which has not changed since 13th Century. The Tuna fishing season starts beginning of April and end in June.

The narrow cobbled streets, plenty of little tapas bars and beautiful wrought-iron rejas make Tarifa old town a charming place with castellated walls and whitewashed houses much of what constructed in the 18th Century. Castle of Guzman el Bueno, the city arab Castle, was built in 960

On the hills behind Tarifa are hundreds of wind turbines, one of the largest wind farms in Europe.

Tarifa fans will also be interested in 'The Alchemist' by Paulo Coehlo featuring the tales of the little shepherd boy who visits Tarifa on his way to Morocco.

Tarifa is famous for its 10 km of white sandy beaches, a paradise protected as a Natural Area and location of annual world wind surf championships, and well known as a Wale-watching center. Wonderful opportunity to get close to whales, dolphins and other sea mammals.


Tangiers, reached from Tarifa by ferry in just 35 minutes, has a fascinating history: "international zone" from 1920 until 1950, become a haven for Europeans in search of an alternative lifestyle, spies and millionaires. Among famous writers attracted by its exotic atmosphere there are W. Burroughs, T.enessee Williams, Allen Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac. Matisse also painted in the city. Visitors are now attracted by the medina, by its winding streets, by the famous Kasbah and colourful souks.


Bolonia is a small isolated fishing village (5 mins from Betis) site of Roman archaeological excavations “Baelo Claudia” which became famous as the source of a fish-based savoury paste, garum, a gentlemen’s relish much prized as a garnish in meals by the Roman inhabitants of first-century.

Due to its cul-de-sac situation Bolonia bay, one of the most beautiful sandy bay and dune system in Europe, is still a well-kept secret and remains largely unspoilt.

"Wonderful holiday in a particular place"

We stayed in this beatifully restored mansion for 2 weeks. We were 3 families of 2, with 3 children. Our stay was very pleasant. The villa is located in the very small rural village of Betis, where cows and horses walk freely around. The house is very tastefully restored with a furnished kitchen. (even if we did not cook our own meals because in Betis, Bolonia and Tarifa there is a lot of very economic small restaurants). In the house there is also a piano! The gardens and swiming pool are well kept. From the garden, where there is an outside tennis table, we did birdwatching (many vultures) and had a stunning views of the surrounding "mountains" similar to Dolomities (we had some guided climbing too). Villa is close enough to the beaches (3 mins by car) but far away enough to escape the hassle of Tarifa's nightlife. A well thought out holiday house. You definitely need a car as the house is in a hilly position and you need to drive everywhere. We will definitely be booking a return holiday.
