The Andalucia region
The Costa de la Luz is one of the last unspoilt stretches of coastline in Spain. The Cádiz stretch runs from the tourist hotspot of Tarifa in the south to beautiful Cádiz in the north, believed to be the world's oldest city.
Within the province also lies the fascinating town of Jerez and a tour of the famous sherry bodegas is a must. The picturesque white towns of Vejer, Zahara, Medina Sidonia and Alcalar are all within an hour's drive.
The Natural Park of Alcornocales starts just behind Facinas and continues all the way to Ronda.
Facinas is a wonderfully peaceful village and a perfect base from which to explore the area. The village itself boasts some of the best restaurants in the area and at weekends they are busy with visitors from the neighbouring towns. There are fantastic opportunities for walking and cycling in the hills behind Facinas, with prehistoric cave paintings, forests and waterfalls to be discovered and explored.
Whilst being a quieter alternative to the busy nightlife centre of Tarifa, Facinas is also closer to the areas's most popular beaches. Nearest is the amazing beach at Bolonia where you can wander around the impressive Roman ruins of Baelo Claudia before dining on fish straight out of the sea! A little further south is the natural paradise of Punta Paloma followed by the stunning bay of Valdevaqueros and the long kitesurf mecca of Los Lances.
The nearest main town of Tarifa has something for everyone. Wander around the labyrinthine streets of the old town and shop in the many stylish boutiques, explore the medieval castle, eat in one of the myriad tapas bars and restaurants or dance the night away. Whale watching tours into the straits of Gibraltar leave daily and of course Morocco is only 35 minutes away by ferry- lunch in Tangier is a fun way to spend a day. For those that fancy a late night out, taxis run all night to get you back to Facinas.
Head north and you soon reach the stunning hilltop Moorish town of Vejer de la Frontera which has been declared a national monument. Overlooking the Las Breñas national park, the beaches of Los Caños de Meca and El Palmar, and Cape Trafalgar, it is a fantastic place to spend a day exploring the medieval old town with its tiny cobbled streets, tapas bars, shops and historic buildings including the original castle which in parts dates back to the 10th Century.
The beaches near Facinas are all unspoilt, clean and spacious even in the middle of summer. The area is famous for windsurfing and kitesurfing and it is easy to arrange lessons if necessary. Other activities that are offered locally include horse-riding, mountain biking, rock climbing and scuba diving. The nearest golf courses are at Montenmedio or Benalup, both 45 minutes away, or heading in the other direction, the many courses of the Costa del Sol start at Alcaidesa, also 45 minutes away.
Details on all of these activities will be available in the house.

"Stunning views, beautiful village location."
The property is in a lovely unspoilt village location, with stunning views over fields and mountains. Lots of things to do in the surrounding area. The property itself is well equipped and very comfortable. Would recommend highly.

"Amazing location, views, and house"
Mid July 2011 we had a short but great stay at Casa Facinas, on a short round trip through Andalucia. The house is spacious and comfortable. The views from the rooftop terrace are great, and moreover, the terrace is a good place to relax during the evening or siestas. The Tarifa-Facinas-Cadiz area offers plently of things to do. I would recommend trips to Vejer and Jerez, dolphin and whale watching (please opt for FIRMM and not Tumares! FIRMM provides way more value for the same money - including a short but interesting introductory lecture - and actually cares about the animals), and the beaches are windy but great at Bolonia and Punta Paloma. The Venta Pinto restaurant below Vejer (first exit to Vejer from Facinas) is great, although a bit pricy. I would advise everybody to visit this place.

Our stay was on of luxury combined with practicality. The townhouse itself is situated on the edge of the beautiful town of Facinas. The lovely old town is quiet during the day with a few general shops but come the night strolling down the streets is filled with life and atmosphere. The house was well laid out with the most amazing kitchen. Relaxing couches and swinging chair lookin out onto the most amazing sunsets. The main bedroom was very comfy and well designed bathroom. The upstairs was well equipped with laundry room, second bedroom and outdoor entertaining area. With a barbeque and relaxing seats what a lovely way to spend the evening lising to nice music and enjoying the beautiful countryside. Very close to the local beaches we can rate this family environment a must holiday stay.

"Peaceful, relaxing and and well appointed apartment in Sleepy Fascinas"
I stayed here for 5 days whilst visiting a friend in the area. The apartment was spacious, roomy and well appointed. Kitchen had everything needed, bedroom was spacious with ample closet space, bathroom was clean and upstairs roof terrace a great bonus for post beach sundowners. Furnished in a neutral palette throughout, this apartment was very good value for money and provided a great base from which to explore Tarifa, Bolonia and the surrounding countryside.
