Mal Wir verbrachten wunderbare Tage im schönen Haus am nahen Strand. Das Haus war noch schöner eingerichtet (wunderbare Bilder kamen dazu) und es hatte einen neuen Anstrich der Außenfassade. Die Inneneinrichtung hatte uns schon das erste Mal begeistert. Besonders die kurze Distanz zum traumhaften Strand fanden wir toll. Konnten schon um diese Zeit baden gehen. Besonders die Strandspaziergänge waren für die ganze Familie total schön und entspannend. Die Aussicht auf das Meer und das rauschen des Meeres genossen wir von der schönen Terrasse aus. Wir hatten eine tolle Woche.

Owner very helpful and on hand if required. Tarifa old town is great as everything is within walking distance and it is a typical old town in Spain. Can be noisy at times, as in any town in Spain, but as the bedroom in Casa Colon is at the back away from the street, it is less affected by people passing. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and can recommend the apartment and Tarifa old town.
