Stunning Villa With Private Pool Overlooking Sandy Beach

Bedrooms 4
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 5 - 7 nights


About the property

4 bedrooms (sleeps 10/11) 3 bathrooms

Magnificently located Villa with private pool. The property has sea views from downstairs lounge and upstairs terraces with a breathtaking coastal panorama from the rooftop terrace; Portugal can be seen in the distance. Restaurants/cafes are 2mins walk, a 4* hotel and mini-market are close (5 mins walk).

Ayamonte and The Algarve: The very pretty fishing port and town of Ayamonte on the Spanish/Portuguese border is lined with street cafes, restaurants, tapas bars and nice boutiques/shops - the freshly caught fish and seafood in the restaurants is a big draw to Spaniards from Sevilla, Cordoba, Badajoz, Madrid and even from the north of Spain. Other nearby places of interest are Huelva, from where Columbus first sailed to the New World; El Rocio, famous for the annual pilgrimage; and Andalucian capital Seville, home of tapas, flamenco, Moorish architecture and so much more. The eastern end of the Portuguese Algarve is also worth a day trip or two, it is a beautiful and largely unspoilt region with long sandy beaches, small fishing villages and attractive national parks. The historic town of Tavira is only 40 mins drive away and has a lovely square next to the river with a hilltop castle/gardens, churches and other ancient buildings. It is also lined with street cafes and restaurants.

Beaches and Activities: The beach is very safe and ideal for water sports, with a sandbank out to sea where “almejas” (mussels) can be fished without nets!. The beaches are highly prized by Spaniards, but still little known to foreigners. The long pristine sandy beaches provide a base from which to enjoy the watersports for which the area is famous - sailing, windsurfing and kite surfing. If you do not want to try it yourself, you can just relax on the beach and enjoy the skilful gymnastics of the kitesurfers and windsurfers. There are marinas at Isla Canela & Isla Cristina where sailors of all abilities can hire boats to enjoy the Atlantic Coastline.

For younger family members, on the road into Cartaya (approx 30 mins) there is the Kartodromo de Cartaya (Karting) open year round, and the very popular Aquopolis water park.

Cycling in and around Isla Canela is great for the whole family. There are cycle paths with no cars along the side of the beach, tracks into Ayamonte and a disused railway line.

Golf and Kite Surfing: Five excellent golf courses nearby: Isla Canela Golf, Costa Esuri Golf, Monte Rei, Castro Marim and Islantilla Golf Courses, winter home of the Swedish & Danish Golf Unions. Facilities include Driving Ranges, Putting & Chipping Greens, Practice Bunkers, Resident Golf Pros. Isla Canela also has 2 international standard bowling greens, tennis courts & football training areas. Other nearby courses are: El Rompido, Nuevo Portil and, just across the border in the eastern Algarve: Quinta de Cima and Quinta da Ria.

For the keen golfer the Costa de la Luz, Huelva and the Eastern Algarve are as yet “undiscovered' when compared to the western Algarve and Costa del Sol. Green fees are lower and the courses less crowded, making it much easier to get a start time. They are also some of best courses in all of Spain.

The beach is very highly rated by kite-surfers and there are good instructors. Part of the beach is reserved for kite-surfers/ sailors in summer.

Chalet Isla Canela

  • 5 of 5

Muy bien ubicada la casa en un entorno tranquilo. Buen estado de la casa, que es bastante amplia, quizas necesite ciertos cambios de decoración en la habitaciones para hacer mas agradable la estancia. Magnifica atención de las personas de mantenimiento de la casa, cualquier problema lo solventan de forma rapida y eficiente. Creo que es un buen sitio para disfrutar de las vacaciones

Isla Canela is the beach resort of the picturesque white Andalusian town of Ayamonte, originally a traditional Spanish fishing village with a market, old town and plazas. The prized Atlantic 'golden' sandy and clean beaches of Isla Canela can be accessed by a beautiful road causeway, with cycle path, through protected salt Marismas. The sea is very safe for children, you can walk for miles along the beach, there are great seafood restaurants and yacht marinas.

Isla Canela is in the Huelva district of Andalucia on the Costa de la Luz (Spanish Algarve) , 45 mins from Faro and 1hr from Seville, towns served by airlines such as EasyJet, Monarch, MyTravel, Ryanair, Jet2 and BA. Ayamonte is located by the Rio Guadiana which is a wide, tidal and exceptionally beautiful river. It separates Spain from the Portuguese Algarve; you can hire boats to explore it for miles. A quaint ferry can be taken to Portuguese Vila Real de San Antonio with its shopping streets and market.

Other Activities: Kite-surfing

Golf: There are four golf courses at a distance of less than 20 mins by car. They are all very different. Isla Canela Golf Course wends its way through beautiful coastal marismas and is 5 mins from Villa Canela. It has a picturesque restaurant, bar and competition bowling greens. Costa Esuri golf is on the east bank of the Guadiana River, good for a game, but without many surrounding services. Then just over the border are two Portuguese courses, Castro Marim near the old castle and the Jack Nicklaus course of Monte Rei, well known and a world-class golf destination. By staying at the beautiful beach of Isla Canela you really can combine exciting golf, including competitions, with a beach holiday. I have a large secure basement for storing golf bags/trolleys etc adjacent to the gated car parking area by the house. Also, I have negotiated REDUCED GREEN FEES for my clients.

At Monte Rei Jack Nicklaus designed his first of two 'Signature' Golf Courses in Portugal. There is highly qualified staff to ensure top quality playing surfaces, instruction and catering. I understand there is an award-winning Chef, Jaime Perez, in the Fine Dining Restaurant, 'Vistas'. The dining terraces offer superb views of the sea and mountains.
