The villa was very quiet and peaceful. Lovely large pool and plenty of sun loungers and shaded veranda for those who wanted to stay out of the sun. The surrounding area was mainly farming land and housing - no village to speak of. There were a few restaurants and bars within walking distance - the most local restaurant (just a couple of minutes walk) had really good and inexpensive food and a good atmosphere.
The area surrounding the villa was unfortunately quite scruffy - big refuse bins at the end of the road and lots of rubbish surrounding the immediate area. This in no way detracted from the villa when you were inside the walled area of the villa and pool.
The villa itself was comfortable and clean. The kitchen was very well equipped and had everything you could possibly need. I would suggest to Mandy (the owner) that she invests in some new towels and bedding. The towels and bedding supplied were clean but definately past their best - nice towels and bedding make a huge difference to your comfort when you are on holiday.
Mandy was a great host - we arrived late at night so she had got some basics in for us for the following morning. She gave us useful information about the area and was there if we needed her. Although she lives in the villa next door we did not see her unless we needed something. She was extremely considerate to her guests.
You certainly need a car if you are staying at this villa - the beach area is about a twenty minute drive away and the supermarkets are a good 15 min drive away.
There are some interesting places to visit within easy driving distance - Cadiz (the old town in well worth a visit), Vejer- again well worth a visit. For the evenings we enjoyed going to Conil de la Frontera - a very spanish seaside resort about 15 mins drive away. It had a lovely atmosphere on an evening - busy with a real buzz about it. Loads of restaurants and bars to choose from on the narrow streets - well worth a visit.
We flew into Seville and it was an easy drive down to Chiclana - about 1 1/2 hours.
Overall we had a really good week with the weather being extremely kind to us.
