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.

Apparently only open until end of September, but no information given in advance. Its not a beach house, at least 20 minutes walk to the beach and finally a neighbor with a dog that was barking constantly nearly every day between 5 pm and 8 pm
