Photos and Description of this 7 bedroom holiday villa in Conil de la Frontera - Casa del Médico
Perfect family beach house, big pool & garden, walk to tennis, shops, playground
Sleeps 10-12 (6 bed/4bath), and less than 700m from the perfect Atlantic beach. Big garden and fenced pool, perfect for children to run around. Sat TV, DVD, CD, Ipod -dock, and Internet. Short walk (400m) to fantastic children's playground, pharmacy, mini market, and bar.
The 1,500m2 garden is far larger than the norm in Roche, and offers plenty of sun and shade, both in the pool enclosure and on the main lawns, which provide plenty of space for games. There are north-facing and south-facing terraces, the latter being the main one, with its large dining table (seats 10-12), sitting area, and built-in BBQ. There is also room here for the ping-pong table!
Jerez, Cádiz, Tarifa, Seville, and the famous 'white villages' are all within easy reach. Water sports and tennis (walking distance); golf (5 mins); bird watching, mountain biking (from doorstep).
Immediate vicinity: Once on the beach, one of the best on this coast, you can walk 8km in one direction (to the old tuna fishing port of Sancti Petri) or 1km in the other, to a series of protected bays with rock pools know as the Calas de Conil. The sea is normally warm enough to swim in right through to December, and it starts to warm up again at Easter. During the summer months, there is a choice of beach bars, and there are also good restaurants (walking distance) that are open throughout the year
