Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Swimmimg Pool, Quiet Rural Location

Nestled into the Andalusian countryside on the Costa de la Luz (Spain’s best kept secret) the house is surrounded by lush farm land (mainly stunning sunflower fields) and the only noises you hear are the tweeting birds around you. The first thing most people comment on when they arrive is how peaceful the place is. There is absolutely no background traffic noise and the closest road is too far away to hear. It really is bliss!

The house has been fully restored in its original style, and of course we have added all the usual mod-cons plus some extras to keep you all comfortable (underfloor heating, heat/cold isolated roof and windows, fully equipped kitchen, LED TV, etc.).

Long leisurely walks up the nature-protected hill behind our house give you a magnificent view over the farm land and down to the nearest village (Cantarranas 3km), across the forest and towards the backdrop of the huge Alcornocales National Park hosting a stunning flora and fauna. On a clear day you can also see the coast of Africa and the Atlantic Ocean. The views from the roof terrace over the La Janda valley are incomparable!

Whether you want to laze around the pool, take a long walk or bike ride, go surfing at one of Spain's most consistent spots, or play golf in nearby world class golf courses (Montenmedio is the nearest)... we've chosen our location so you can do just that.

It's a nature-lover's paradise, you’ll often see rabbits or partridges in the garden and the shyer pheasants, and deer if you’re lucky. The hill behind us - El Algar - is a protected site for the Imperial Eagle and we have plenty of buzzards, hawks, owls and an array of other species to spot.

The Situation

We are between two of Andalucia's most famous white villages, Vejer de la Frontera and Medina Sidonia, dating all the way back to the Phoenicians. Both villages are steeped in history and boast great sightseeing, local bars & restaurants for an authentic experience.

El Palmar, the Costa de la Luz’s most popular surf spot is the nearest beach with cool surfy vibe. You can’t help but love it! It has some great fish restaurants to offer and lots of live music at sunset to be enjoyed

The neighbouring villages of Conil and Caños de Meca offer white endless sandy beaches and again provide some great fish and local style cuisine packed with live entertainment night clubs and general fun.

The situation is ideal for day trip and excursions, on one side to Cadiz, Europe's oldest city, Jerez with its famous sherry Bodegas and Royal Equestrian School, and in the other direction you can visit Tarifa, famous for its Kitesurfing and Windsurfing and probably one of the most picturesque and vibrant little towns along both coasts. Gibraltar is near enough for some Duty Free shopping and pay a visit the famous Apes on top of the Rock.

All of the above are within a one hour drive from the house.

The Finca

Originally three individual farm houses, our wonderful Finca has been lovingly restored and the three houses joined together to create one large property. The house consists of two barns connected by a rebuilt stone ruin which today forms the salon.

The upper area one has a very large fully equipped kitchen, dining room and lounge area with a large open fire place with safety heat proof glass doors which can be completely closed, one double bedroom with its own en-suite.

The large salon with its floor-to-ceiling glass doors gives you a fantastic view onto the pool and garden. The glass doors can be opened for a lovely indoor-outdoor feel.

The lower area has a very decadent 35 sq/m master bathroom with bath and shower. Next door is the second double bedroom, and then the master-bedroom with its own en-suite bathroom (bath and shower) and French doors opening up to the other side of the garden.

About Pierre Richardson

I am a friendly, outgoing, fun loving person, I enjoy kitesurfing, windsurfing and snowboarding, and I love good food and great wine. I am lucky to have turned my passion into a career, and I have owned my own wedding photography studio for over 6 years now.

I spend a lot of time in Amsterdam, London and Dublin where many of my friends family, and especially my girlfriend is based, but I will never leave the Costa de la Luz, the most magical place in the world.

Pierre Richardson purchased this villa in 2007

Why Pierre Richardson chose Costa de la Luz - Cadiz

This is a retreat-style property so if you are looking for peace and quiet on your holiday and want stunning views of the Andalusian countryside, then this is the rural property for you.

Lovely property in a great quiet location close to Vejer and the coast

  • 5 of 5

Casa Tranquila is exactly that - a lovely, peaceful property in a beautiful, unspoiled part of Spain. The house had everything we needed and more then lived up to expectations. Pierre was really helpful and relaxed. We had a wonderful time and would recommend wholeheartedly. Thanks Pierre!

Beautiful secluded Villa, totally off the beaten track

  • 5 of 5

If you wish to escape the 'rat race' and hanker after total peace and quiet then this is the Casa for you.

Five of us (adults) stayed in Pierre's tastefully decorated Casa. Pierre was

utterly charming and was easily contactable for any problems, along with Juan who visited early morning to check the pool etc ., and would always relay messages back to Pierre, if need be.

The Casa is in an ideal area for exploring Cadiz, Jerez, Medina Sidonia and the beautiful magical town of Vejer de la Fronterer, plus of course

the beaches fairly nearby.

We would barbecue at night and sit and play our raucous games of cards until late without disturbing anyone.

There was a friendly Spanish Bar not too far away, good for an early evening drink.

All in all a delightful laid back break which made it quite difficult to return to normality.

The only downside was locating the Villa, but we found it in the end after a phone call and driving along a field first!!!!

We would all love to return.

True Andalucia, gorgeous villa.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed last week of April and first two weeks of May. Fantastic experience in a beautiful villa in a top class location. I picked this property before so many others. The villa has a large living space and is secluded in a quiet location. My wife and I arrived at the start of wild flower season - an unexpected bonus. The villa is very spacious and easy to live in and adapt to. As a terrible sleeper I had the best sleep I have had in a long time.

The whole experience was excellent and Pierre proved to be an excellent communicator and was very helpful. The villa met/exceeded my expectations and turned out to be an excellent worthwhile holiday. I would recommend this villa for families/couples or those wishing to 'drop out' for a few weeks.

Although in a quiet location up a farm type track. The villa is brilliantly served by the local road networks (part of the reason we picked it). Within 15-30 mins (Medina-Sidonia, Vejer, Las Brenas Park, Los Canos De Meca, Conil, Barbate), within 40 mins to an hour (Cadiz, Jerez, Arcos, Via Verde, Gibraltar, Tarifa). Excellent area and too many places to list. Genuinely good experience and hope to repeat it some day. The only thing I didn't like was going home. Usually after an extended break - going home seems okay. I could have happily moved in and lived there - if only.....

Lucid dreaming

  • 5 of 5

Watching travelling shows on television and Facebook timelines from your travelling friends, you might get the impression that it's impossible to be just that perfect.Here's where Casa Tranquila delivers (and why).

It's situated in no mans land, so if you come here for relaxing in a tranquil environment, you are good to go.

It has al facilties to host medium ranged groups, great kitchen, plenty of bathrooms and a pool.

Beautifull villages and their fresh markets are only a 20 min drive, bigger cities / higlights are one and a half hour.

To satisfy your "hipster"friends it's self supportive with solar panels etc.

It is children friendly, we were there with two children under the age of two - well facilitated!

It has a lounge room inside and outside as well, including a brick barbeque and a cosy fireplace.

All you need is some friends to bring along to have a splendid time here. You don't need to bring wine, they have plenty of good ones over there - and the first one is on the house.

Host is a combination of a Socializing Swede, with some French Finesse and an American sense of Amazing hospitaly who is very good communicative.

Only reason to not hire this fantastic villa is not having any friends. But you can always write that novel you are talking about for ages on the lovely roof terrace.

Or make some easy new friends by boasting you have this amazing villa in Andalusia (the villa to back that statement up is only three clicks away!).

Owner's Response: Me sorprendió mucho oír que este invitado no disfrutó de su estancia, y me decepciona que el no me ha llamado con sus problemas, que podrían en su mayoría haber sido solucionado fácilmente con mejor comunicación. La casa tiene ventanas con mosquiteras, y ventiladores en los dormitorios principales, pero por alguna razón ninguno de éstos se utilizaron. Estoy de acuerdo en que la casa parece lejos de todo, pero eso es para mí lo que le da su encanto, y de verdad está a tan sólo 15 minutos de Vejer o Medina-Sidonia. También es cierto que no tengo canales de televisión terrestres españoles, porque normalmente son suficientes todos los canales internacionales de Filmon, y los que se pueden ver por internet o streaming. El confort de nuestros clientes es muy importante para nosotros, así que si hay algún problema, nosotros pedimos ser informado imediatamente, ya que siempre nosotros haremos todo lo posible para proporcionar soluciones inmediatas, y asegurarnos de que su estancia en la casa es lo más agradable como posible.
