Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Conil de la Frontera - Casa Luis
Roche, Costa de la Luz. 4 bed/2 bath, beach 200m, fenced pool, WIFI, heating
Let the sound of surf and nightingales send you to sleep! Well-kept, mature garden, with umbrella pines, palms, and rubber plants provides sun and shade, and the fenced 8mx4m salt-water pool is perfect for children. 150m away, the 8km Atlantic beach is ideal for sand-castles, beach cricket, and surfing. This Andalusian-style villa sleeps 2-8 with comfortable furnishings and many of the Spanish owner's personal touches (including his own paintings of local scenes). The sitting/dining room opens on to 30 square metres of covered terrace. Fully furnished from spring to autumn and looking over the pool, it faces west and makes the ideal spot for lazy afternoons. Another smaller terrace outside the kitchen is perfect for breakfast. Pot plants and aromatic plants abound. Jerez, Cádiz, Tarifa, Seville, and the famous 'white villages' are all within easy reach. Activities include watersports and tennis (walking distance), golf (5 mins), mountain biking (from doorstep).
Immediate vicinity: Casa Luis is situated in what is arguably the best corner of the most exclusive urbanisation on the Costa de La Luz. Positioned on a cul-de-sac in the oldest corner of Urbanización Roche, for 9 months of the year you are normally able walk the 150 metres to the beach without seeing anyone. 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 (el Timón de Roche and at the Hotel Barceló Sancti Petri). The Hotel Barceló also has a wonderful spa. Within Roche itself there are basic shops and sports facilities (see above), all of which are walkable.
Activities: There are numerous activities available in the surrounding area, ranging from hiking or surfing to bird watching and ballooning. The owner can help you organise all of these, including personal guides: please contact him for details.

Guestbook comments from the manager
We had everything we needed in the house. With small children it worked very well for us. Nice fenced pool and outsite sitting area. The owner was very helpful.
