Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Conil de la Frontera
3 bedrooms, two twins/one double, no smoking, self-catering apartment, free WiFi
This spacious modern apartment is ideally situated in the trendy La Bodega area, a short walk from the beach and old quarter and close to shops, restaurants and bars. The underground parking space is accessible with a key fob remote and all floors, including parking levels can be accessed by the lift. The apartment building has been built to a high standard and is designed to make full use of natural light throughout. The apartment has three comfortable bedrooms, two bathrooms, a modern kitchen and an open plan sitting/dining room on the lower floor leading to a small balcony. If you fancy a break from the beach, on the upper floor is a large private 50m2 roof terrace, not overlooked, which is a great place to unwind and enjoy a drink, sunbathe, read, dine or just hang out. If it wasn't for the great places to visit in the surrounding area, it's very tempting to leave the car in the garage and spend all the time between the beach, the town and the apartment.
About Conil de la Frontera: With over 3,000 hours of sunshine, Conil de la Frontera is a great place to visit all year round. In addition, although tourism makes up a major part of its economy, Conil is still a working town, giving it a heart and soul, even in the winter months. The hottest months are in July and August and this is when the town is at its busiest, though the tourist calendar is generally packed with all sorts of fiestas and events in and around the town throughout the year. Above all, Conil de la Frontera is a perfect place to kick back and enjoy the good things in life. Spend the day swimming and sunbathing on the beach, have a leisurely lunch in a restaurant and then later, take an evening stroll down to Plaza Santa Catalina and enjoy a drink and tapas outside one of the many bars where you can watch the world go by well into the night. In the summer, choose from a sumptuous array of ice creams, kick off your shoes and take a 'paseo' along the beach.
Places to Visit around Conil de la Frontera: Not only is Conil a great place to stay, with a wealth of things to see and do, it’s also ideally situated for visiting the Costa de la Luz and some of the beautiful towns and cities inland. There’s a huge variety of things to see, from the winding alleys and amazing views of Vejer de la Frontera, the camera obscura and dramatic sea battlements of Cadiz, the old fort and surf kites of Tarifa, the bodegas and Andalucian horses of Jerez de la Frontera, the flamenco and orange trees of Seville, the Roman ruins of Baelo Claudio on the beach near Bolonia, to the eagles, chameleons, lynxes, otters and host of other species to be found in the National Parks.
For some added excitement in the summer, head for the Aqualand Bahia Water Park in Puerto Santa Maria, or to the Jerez Motor Racing Ciruit for a track day or to watch a race or in the winter catch a football match in Cadiz. The possibilities are endless!

About Tom Bell
I live in England with my family, but visit Conil de la Frontera with my family and friends as often as I can. I have great affection for Conil and its people and it feels like a second home to us. We love the Spanish way of life, the sun, the food and the beach and we’ll continue to come to Conil as much as we can. There's still loads of restaurants and bars left to try and I'll never get tired of the amazing beach.
When I’m back in England, I manage the rentals with the help of a local company a couple of blocks away from the apartment who are very efficient, helpful and well known within Conil.
Tom Bell purchased this apartment in 2004
Why Tom Bell chose Conil de la Frontera
Travelling through Latin America and Spain, I’d always dreamed of buying a place on the coast in Spain. We’d always enjoyed holidays in Andalucia, so in 2004, after a lot of research, I set off along the South coast of Spain to look for a suitable location. I knew Conil de la Frontera was the place as soon as I came over the hill and I could see the white town and beach spreading out below. It had everything I was looking for: easy to get to, right by the sea, sunshine, a very Spanish atmosphere, a beautiful historic centre, an amazing beach, loads to do, lovely people, fantastic bars and restaurants and not overrun by foreign tourists.
I also love the area, Cadiz, Jerez and Seville and it's so easy to get onto the motorway just a few minutes away over the hill.
What makes this apartment unique
I never get bored in Conil. The thing I love about the position of the apartment is that it’s so close to the beach and the old quarter. It’s also modern and light and everything you need (to buy, eat or drink) can be found within a few blocks, so you only need the car if you go on a trip. I especially love the roof terrace. It’s unusual to find so much space, not overlooked, so close to the centre of town and I can spend hours eating, drinking and playing with the family up ‘above the world’.
Apart from that, I love the magnificent sandy beach which goes on for miles and miles and is fantastic for adults and children. Body boarding and surfing is great but there's golf and all sorts of other things to do too in and around Conil. I could go on for ages but I'm running out of space .....
