The apartment is set in private, pretty & well maintained terraced gardens which has its own outdoor swimming pool. Nearby hotels offer additional facilities for both adults & children including evening entertainment.

Costa de la Luz: Costa de la Luz, the Coast of Light, is a unique and beautiful area of Spain. It is largely untouched and has been spared the mass tourist exploitation that many other coasts of Spain have suffered.

Here the original culture and heritage of the local people is still very much present and the land holds large national parks. Discover a warm and friendly countryside next to the glittering Atlantic, bathed in the light of the Spanish sun.

The Isla Canela resort comprises of a Golf course, vast fine sandy beaches, a modern leisure marina, luxury hotels, small commercial centres, restaurants and cafes. It is also home to a small fishing village as well as a large protected bird sanctuary.

Ayamonte: Ayamonte stands high above the river Guadiana. It is a frontier town and an important fishing port. Its maritime character is further enhanced by its dockyards and other naval trappings.

During the summer months the ferry which connects it to neighbouring Portugal sees a continual coming and going of travelers, and the town becomes especially lively. In Ayamonte, there are neatly whitewashed houses, pleasant squares, Baroque churches and some traces of the Manueline style owing to the influence of its proximity to Portugal. There is also a beautiful promenade along the harbour which is lined with palm trees called the Paseo de la Ribera, as well as stepped streets that are terribly steep, and some aristocratic mansions and palaces.

The nobleness and age of the town are made clearly evident by its monuments and ruins. The ruined castle has Roman foundations, an Arab tower and the remains of Baroque decoration.

Golf in the Costa de la Luz: There are about 25 golf courses on the Costa de la Luz! In the province of Huelva alone, within half an hour away by car, there are eight quality golf courses to choose from. The dry and sunny climate make the region superbly suited for year-round golfing and the sport has been growing steadily in the region during the past 20 years because of it.

As if all the golf courses on the Costa de la Luz and around Seville were not enough there is also all the courses on the Portuguese Algarve. Here there are 24 courses of different style and difficulty within one hours drive of Isla Canela.

About Adele or Mike

We live and work in the south coast of the UK but travel to our home from home often.

Adele or Mike purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Adele or Mike chose Ayamonte

We wanted somewhere that retained a very Spanish feel to the surrounding area. Huelva are where many Spanish take their traditional holidays and therefore this area is perfect for us to relax and explore.

What makes this apartment unique

Isla Canela means Cinnamon Island. It is actually both an island and a nature reserve with limited development allowed. You access Isla Canela via a small roadbridge which you may not recognise as taking you from the mainland to the island. Isla Canela has very large and beaches that are unspoiled and never busy. it has a few beach restaurants and bars dotted along but hidden away so you never really see them until you want to visit them. It also has great seafood restaurants and very good quality golf courses nearby.

I spent my summer holidays in this apartment at 2009, 2010 e 2011. I always remained very pleased. The listing description was 100% accurate regarding the location, layout, facilities, etc.. Everything was very clean and well maintained, including common outdoor spaces, pool and lift.

I have already recommended this apartment to friends and relatives.

Mike and Adele are very friendly.

Isla Canela is 50 minutes from Faro airport (Portugal) and 75 minutes from Seville (Spain). Many flights connect to either of these airports and there are further connections to Jerez airport.

If arriving from within Europe, especially the UK, many budget airlines fly to the above airports and very competitive prices can be obtained if booking 2 months in advance.

The stunning city of Seville is just over an hour away as is the magnificent Siera de Aracena mountain range. There is an 18 hole golf course on the island (5 minutes drive) and several other courses within a 30 minute drive.

Further details of budget airlines and golf courses can be emailed on request.

Other Activities: kite-surfing, bird watching, running

Golf: The Isla Canela Golf Club, is located between the Isla Canela beach and Ayamonte. Its 18-hole, par 72 course, easy access, the area´s pleasant climate (average 20ºC), all combine to make Isla Canela the ideal destination for Golf enthusiasts.

The Golf Course's close proximity to the sea and its lush vegetation make it a wonderful place for a great round of golf. In fact, it is considered to be one of the best courses in Spain. The salt-water lakes surrounding some of the holes are spectacular. The par-5 2nd, surrounded by water and deep bunkers, deserves a special mention for its beauty and level of difficulty.

The clubhouse has all the facilities necessary to make your time here as comfortable and pleasant as possible: a magnificent restaurant, where you can enjoy typical Andalusian cuisine, a lounge bar, a pro shop offering everything necessary a golfer needs, a swimming pool, and beautiful terraces where you can relax and enjoy the countryside. And don't forget our guests qualify for a 44% reduction on the 18 hole green fee.
