Location: The villa is of unusual architectural design with ‘rotunda’ and some Moorish-style windows. It is located amongst the pine groves in a peaceful and private orchard setting of palms, fig trees and vines, yet near several stunning sandy beaches.
The large, secluded Andalucian landscaped garden is protected by high cypresses and includes a completely private pool with shower. The patio overlooks the pool. However, there are several other areas to enjoy a meal ‘al fresco’ as the sun moves round. Relax under the shade of old fig trees and banana palms, whilst oleander bushes and old ‘Muscadet’ vines add further atmosphere.
Cala de Aceite is the nearest beach and is only 10 minutes walk away, through the pine grove. This is the local sandy cove, complete with ‘chiringuito’ - beach bar. It is sheltered by sand-stone cliffs. The conservation area of pine forest invites you to walks, bike-riding and horse treks.
Through the pine groves is the little local fishing port where you can watch the daily catch being landed. Beyond this is Cape Roche lighthouse which is a key viewing point along the coast to Cape Trafalgar. The two lighthouses wink at each other!
The clean Atlantic Ocean offers lengthy golden sands – La Barrosa beach which stretches from Roche to Cadiz; La Fontanilla in Conil has safe shallow waters, ideal for children, or choose from the several sheltered coves of Roche.
The local restaurant serves fresh local fish. Alternatively, eat a home-made pizza under the vines in the family-run pizza house round the corner. Otherwise resort to a ‘take-away’!
Nearby Conil is an attractive, traditional white seaside town. Wander its winding streets or stroll along the promenade. Delicious patisserie is recommended in the ‘pastelerias’ or enjoy a drink ‘al fresco’ in the church square. Chiclana, by the river, is buzzing and full of atmosphere.
Restaurants abound nearby and in the seaside town of Conil and Chiclana.
However, we have secret haunts where you can dine watching the magnificent sunsets!
