About Andrew Davies

Hi, I'm Andrew owner of Mandevilla. I currently live in Dorchester, Dorset with my wife Emma and 4 children; a daughter aged 11, twin 8 year old girls and my baby boy aged 7. I grew up in Cardiff, Wales and studied Engineering at Loughborough University.

I married my wife Emma (from Ruislip) 16 years ago and we moved to Weymouth where we set up her Estate Agency, Direct Moves, which still trades successfully now.

I am based at home and spend most of my time divided between childcare and restoring our 18th century Manor House.

Andrew Davies purchased this villa in 2004

Why Andrew Davies chose Costa de la Luz - Cadiz

We visited this area of Spain one weekend in 2003 with a budget of 100,000 Euros with the intention of buying a villa for family holidays. We ended up spending two and a half times as much to buy Mandevilla off plan. We realised the location was perfect knew that this modern spacious villa would offer the perfect base for our Holidays on the Costa de la Luz.

We have shared the villa with over 100 holidaymakers over the last 9 years and Mandevilla still looks fantastic!

What makes this villa unique

The builder responsible for Mandevilla clearly had very high standards; rarely the case for villas in rural parts of Andalusia. The villa always feels fresh, clean and new.

The garden is professionally maintained and laid to lawn so children can run and play freely. The pool was built to the same high standards as the villa and carefully maintained and chemically balanced by a dedicated pool contractor.

The suburb of Las Veguetas is perfectly situated with easy access to all the attractions of the Costa de la Luz (especially the beach). The necessary amenities are also really convenient with a choice of supermarkets including Lidl for the cost conscious.

The neighbours are quiet and friendly.

I believe we were very lucky to have discovered Mandevilla!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at the villa in september 2010. We have been Holidaying in Chiclana for 20+ years In different Hotels/ Villas But we are returning in June 2011 To Mandervilla as we enjoyed it so much there was everything you could ask for and more. The villa was very clean and well maintained.The garden was perfect for all the family especially for my 7 year old son. The pool was perfect for us and we enjoyed lots of time swimming and sunbathing. The agents were brilliant and welcomed us into the villa and were very helpful with any information we required.We found the beach only a few minutes drive. The shops/supermarket and restaurants at Novo Sancti Petri are only 5 mins drive from the villa. We are so happy that we are able to book for June 2011 and we would have no problem reccomending this villa to any of our friends or family . We can't wait to get there again.

Owner's Response: It is great to get positive feedback and even better when guests return. We visited in March 2011 and updated the lounge, master bedroom and porch furniture which we felt were getting tired. Hopefully you will approve of the new additions. I'm delighted that Angie looked after you well. She also does a great job of keeping the big garden tidy and under control! Enjoy your holiday this June.

Spacious and simply furnished which kept it cool and uncluttered with a spacious garden.

  • 5 of 5

As a family of 7 we had a great time at the villa. Lots of space so we weren't on top of each other. Great garden space so my twin 6 year olds could play football safely away from the pool. The pool was really well looked after ( which has been a problem in the past), big and deep so great for real swimming as well as having fun since we all like the water. Only 10 mins from the fabolous Barossa beach which enabled a great balance with the energy of the beach with the peace of a villa. All in all we had a great time as we always do in this area.

Excellent return visit

  • 5 of 5

Little to add to our 2013 review - the fact that we came back for more says it all, especially as we were lucky enough to stay for 4 weeks this time! Very peaceful setting but within a short drive of La Barrosa beach: great walks along the beach, superb sunsets and plenty of restaurants & bars.

Mandevilla is very comfortable and well equipped. Our son, daughter-in-law & 15 month old grand-daughter joined us for a week and we had all the facilities we needed. The grounds are really extensive which gives a wonderfully spacious feel - many other villas can feel "boxy". The pool is brilliant. Oh, and keep an eye out for hoopoe birds in the garden. Highly recommended.

Wonderful Stay in Mandevilla

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a wonderful relaxing two week stay in Mandevilla. The villa was spacious, clean, well equipped and set in a large private garden ideal for families. The beautiful large pool provided both a source of exercise and welcome relief from the heat in the afternoon.

Both Andrew, the owner, and his agent Angie were extremely helpful and friendly. On asking where the nearest Internet cafe was to print of our return Ryanair boarding passes, Angie immediately offered to do it for us. They were duly delivered to us later that day.

The villa is located in a quiet residential area but is close to supermarkets and several nearby ventas which offer cheap but delicious food and drink. Barossa beach, which must be the best in Spain, is only 5 minutes away by car. Watching sunset sitting on the beautiful soft sand is absolute must. Happy memories!

A car is essential but this gives you freedom to visit so many interesting places nearby. The ancient cities of Cadiz, Jerez and Tarifa are all within easy reach, but don't miss out on trips to Medina Sidonia, Arcos, Conil and Vejer. You will not be disappointed!

We particularly enjoyed shopping at local fresh produce markets and returning home to dine alfreso. I doubt I have ever eaten so well such is the quality and variety on offer.

Being a keen amateur cyclist, I hired a quality road bike from one of several outlets in Novo Sancti Petri and greatly enjoyed using the safe bike lanes and quiet roads in the area.

I cannot recommend this property highly enough and we are currently planning a return trip next June.

Owner's Response: Angie is typically 100% efficient; our villa and guests are always in safe hands with her. My family and I are staying for a week in April next year and I think we will follow your lead on the cycle hire. Something we haven't tried yet! Great review thank you. We look forward to welcoming you back. Andrew.

absolute great to stay in this house.

  • 5 of 5

A great villa. A lot of space insight the villa and around the villa. Very clean rooms, nice big kitchen, two bathrooms and cool, dark en claen bedrooms. The wall around the big garden makes this villa a perfect private area. The zwimmingpool is big enough to swim and play. The garden is well maintained and the seets outside gives you the real Spanisch feeling. The owner is very friendly in the period before visiting the house. (mail, calling, etc) The manager of the house is great, friendly, gives you a lot of freedom and will help you if you need her.

You need a car to visit the beach or to visit places in the neighberhood. Chiclana is not very special. The beach of Sancti Petri is beautiful. And the restaurants on the boulevard are great. Nice to visit Jerez the la Frontera or Sevilla.

secluded luxury villa in stuning setting

  • 5 of 5

Our family (with 4 children under 11) stayed at the villa. The standard of the villa is excellent, beautifully furnished and tastefully decorated. The gardens and swimming pool are fantastic. The pool is particularly good for proper swimming and there is also a shallow area with steps for smaller children. There is shaded seating area, and a large patio area for alfresco dining.

The beach is a few minutes drive and is outstanding ,with miles of golden sand. We went to a number of authentic Spanish restaurants and tapas bars. A great location for a family holiday.

From Tarifa, the most southerly point of Europe, the Costa de la Luz runs like a golden ribbon west wards to Cádiz and beyond to the border with Portugal. The Spanish themselves favour this Atlantic shoreline. The sand is finer and a more golden colour than the neighbouring Costa del Sol. The typical beaches here are more spread-out and probably backed by sand dunes and pine trees. This part of the coast has not seen the high-rise hotel development of other areas. The temperatures are slightly milder in the winter, the air is clear and fresh and the colours are brighter and of very special intensity. This is why it is called the 'Coast of the light'.

The town of Chiclana has a population of 60,000 people but it still holds onto its village atmosphere. You will find public transport, Medical facilities, good shopping and markets, and an abundance of restaurants and bars. Chiclana a is a high quality tourist destination.

Other Activities: quad biking, go-carting
