It offered us the peace we wanted whilst giving access to the beaches and bars whenever required! Our family joined us and loved the setting too. The interior of the chalet is wonderful and we spent many happy evenings sat on the porch watching the stars! Lisa and Dom were welcoming and kind, even shopping for us before we arrived... a real treat. We would happily recommend this to anyone.

The casa is very tastefully decorated with artistic touches throughout. The bathroom is brand new with an excellent shower. We slept very well all week. The outdoor space is shady and pleasant and there is a beautiful restful area for guests as well with a fountain and hammocks. We love the organic natural way of life, with friendly dogs, cats and chickens and Juan Antonio is a very friendly host. The casas are located in a beautiful lush green garden. El Palmar is perfect for those who like a wild beach and just a handful of amenities. There is a supermarket about 20 minutes away which has lots of fresh produce and a fishmongers as well. There are 3 good restaurants serving local fish and quite a few cafes. When the surf is up you can still swim at the next beach Zahora or small beaches to the west of Conil which is a town worth visiting. Vejer is also nearby, a stunning town set up in the hills.

                                                                                                      We, a family of four with two boys (11 and 8), stayed in Casa de Maria this summer for two weeks. Casa de Maria is a cosy house, thoughtfully equipped with everything a family needs. Juan Antonio designed the interior very artfully, with handpicked decorative items, nice furniture and the highlight being the sculptured bed side tables reminding of Gaudi’s architecture. We loved to take our meals on the terrace in front of the house which is surrounded by beautiful flowering vines offering privacy and shade during the heat of the day. Only a few minutes walking distance away from El Palmar beach (water and beach, both very clean), Casa de Maria is located in a private estate amidst a garden with lush greenery and a little pond – giving the whole property the touch of an oasis. The garden offers space and privacy to chill in comfortable hammocks and a brick BBQ with a seating corner can be used to have romantic meals in the garden. The absolute highlight for our kids were definitely the lovely animals. Juan Antonio has three dogs that are all very friendly, a number of cute cats and some chicken from which you can get really fresh eggs. Juan Antonio is a wonderful host. He is always approachable and happy to help with any question you may have, including translating when local farmers or fishermen come to offer their products at the gate (we had delicious fruits and fresh fish from them). We will definitely be back. Hasta pronto Juan Antonio, Konstantin, Vincent, Alex y Kat
