Make a self catering villa or holiday rental in Palos de la Frontera, Spain your home away from home

It was from here in 1492 that Christopher Columbus set sail on his voyage which resulted in the discovery of America. The 1755 Lisbon earthquake later reshaped the coastline leaving the town slightly inland.

I must say it is safe, nice and quiet place. There is a lovely pool in the house and honestly kids wanted to stay in the pool all the time. Beach is about 10 minutes slow walk from the house. It is calm and quiet beach not congested at all. Centre of this town is about 20 minutes walk from the house and lots of eating places are around. We had a really nice experience. Owner of the property is a nice person and tried to provide us with maximum information about the property and area on our arrival.

Our host Antonio was very helpful and fixed a minor issue with drainage promptly. This is a great family location and we enjoyed it very much. We found plenty places to eat in Mazagon along with more beaches.
