General Golf Information: Compared to the Western Algarve and the Costa del Sol, golfing opportunities on the Costa de la Luz are as yet relatively undiscovered. Green fees are considerably lower and the courses less crowded, making it much easier to get a start time that you want and play a round in reasonable time. Most Golf courses in the area have practice facilities where you are able to hire balls to loosen up. You can play in both Spain and Portugal and all are very easy to get to and give a wide range of different course to satisfy all tastes. Please be aware that most Spanish and Portuguese courses require soft spikes. Buggies and trolleys are usually available for hire.

Local courses: Nuevo Portil: This course winds through the houses and pine trees in Nuevo Portil. It offers a pleasant walk that isn't too tiring and is a good test of golf for all levels of player. The 11th hole is worth a mention it is a par 5 with a small lake in the front right.

El Rompido (North & South): Less than 10 mins drive away finds these 2 spectacular championship courses set amongst pines, olive trees & marshland. Both courses are a very good test of golf especially if the sea breeze picks up. Look out for the marsh crabs underneath the bridge crossing the marsh on the South course. The south course has hosted a number of professional events and has also been used for the final of the Daily Mail foursomes.

Bellavista (Duhesa golf):

The is the oldest members club in Spain (founded 1916) Bellavista is a true members club in the British style. More undulating than many in the coastal area and a challenge for most golfers, the course belies its par of just 70.


This 27 hole course staged the 1996 Turespana Open and provides 3 challenging loops of 9 holes. The course varies from tight tree lined fairways with small, fast greens, to open views of the Huelva coastline with challenging shots over water to target greens. The course meanders through the pine trees and will lead you to believe you are the only golfers there. Some of the holes are lined with accommodation and with a large slice your ball could visit a swimming pool, mine did. The course is easy to find and is about 20 minutes drive away from Brisa del Mar.

Isla Canela: Although relatively new, the course has been integrated with surrounding coastal features; winding through an area of tidal salt marsh. It is largely flat, so will provide a leisurely walk for those who prefer not to slog up hill and down dale, yet also provides an enjoyable golfing challenge. The course is easy to find and is about 30 minutes drive away from Brisa del Mar.

About Jacky and Chris

Jacky and Chris live in Gibraltar but have strong links with the South West of the UK and Coventry. When we are not working, we are usually enjoying the out-doors playing golf, sailing and on the beach.

Jacky and Chris purchased this house in 2007

Why Jacky and Chris chose Nuevo Portil

We had been looking for a holiday home across Europe but most places were too small or too far from the beach, golf and restaurants. We also wanted to avoid the overcrowded 'lego land' developments that can be found on some of the more well known Costas.

A chance find on the internet led us to this unspoilt and traditionally Spanish area which ticked all the boxes plus some.

It's rare now to find an affordable house with good size bedrooms and garden space that is genuinely walking distance from the beach and golf - but we have managed it and we love it.

We always planned to rent the house when we weren't able to be there and felt that this would be a fantastic place for all sorts of groups to enjoy.

What makes this house unique

The drive to the property is alongside the sea and the views are stunning; we were nearly sold on that alone.

When we realised we could see the see from the terraces, had year round sunshine in the south facing garden plus a pergola for my bourgainvilla - we had to have it.

Most of the bars and restaurants are Spanish giving a real experience of local food and tradition. No English breakfasts or fish and chip shops here.

So, if like us, you want a fantastic beach, bars, restaurants and golf all within easy walking distance and still experience the unique friendly culture of the Spanish, this is the area for you.

Family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have been to the area before as we have relatives that stay in the area. We always enjoy the area as it is a bit quieter than the normal spanish beach type resorts. Found the town house easily, facilities were very good and not too far to walk down to the beach. Will certainly be coming back.

Hay que reconocer que es un sitio especial y muy bien preparado para las vacaciones en familia. Tenemos 3 niños pequeños (dos de 6 y uno de 3) y hemos estado alojados durante 15 días y ha sido fantástico. No falta un detalle en la casa, todo pensado para la comodidad (no hace falta llevar nada, tienen todo allí...toallas, sillas de playa, set de picnic, cocina COMPLETAMENTE equipada, así como los dormitorios) y la seguridad de los más pequeños (hay vallas para poder instalar en las escaleras si es preciso). Es una casa muy cómoda, la urbanización estupenda, y la localización ideal, tranquila para una familia, pero con servicios muy cerca. Ya la he recomendado a otras familias con niños, y seguro que repetiremos. ¡¡¡¡UNA ESTANCIA PERFECTA!!! Ruth

Extremely well equipped property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the property in early June and had a super holiday. The weather was excellent and the area was very quiet. The property was very clean, well maintained. It was extremely well equipped with almost anything that you would want for a holiday in the area, from the two bikes to the beach chairs both of which we used throughout our time there. The complex pool was supervised and open at this time and was a really nice facility? The owners could not have been more helpful with their communication and contact. The description of the property was very accurate and the photographs of the property truly reflected what we found there.It is a property which we will hopefully use again if we revisit the area.

A home from home for everyone

  • 5 of 5

We returned to the property after a gap of three years. fortunately standards had not slipped and we found a beautifully clean villa with every need catered for. Did we miss wifi,our son and daughter maybe, same with sky but did it spoil the holiday, no way.We had a wonderful stay and will certainly return soon.

Owner's Response: Great to welcome you back and a big thank you for writing this review. We are considering whether to install wifi for next year although some guests have given us feedback saying that they were pleased to 'switch off' on holiday. For those who haven't been to the area, wifi is readily available at the local bars for free with a drink (a beer or coffee are about €1) - the nearest bar with wifi is only 5 minutes walk away. The removal of the central Sky satellite has unfortunately left all homes on this coastline without any main UK TV channels (BBC, ITV, C4 etc) but as we have our own satellite dish we still receive over 40 Engligh speaking channels for TV addicts or cooler winter evenings indoors. There is also a DVD player and a number of DVDs if you get bored. We're glad that our guests found that our standards are still as high as before. We spend several weeks a year refreshing the property inside and out to ensure that we provide the best facilities and products that we can. We hope to welcome you back again soon.

A very well-equipped, comfortable home from home

  • 5 of 5

A very relaxing environment with all guest needs anticipated and catered for. It is the thoughtful little touches like plenty of pillows, optional duvet ratings and the like which make a big difference between acceptable and extra comfortable holiday accommodation. The reasonably priced golf club and trolley hire was a welcome bonus, and we enjoyed several rounds of golf on the well maintained and landscaped course which surrounds the housing development. The owners have provided a useful information booklet along with supporting material such as maps,guides and phrase books which cannot be faulted for detail and usefulness. We sampled tapas and delicious fish and chicken dishes at but a few of the plethora of bars and restaurants within a short walk of the holiday home. Jacky and Alan provide helpful recommendations in their boklet for everything from shopping to eating out to daytrips to golf courses.

We will definitely visit again, a very good value holiday which we thoroughly recommend to others.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your kind comments. We aim to provide our guests with those little extras that we enjoy when we travel too that make the stay more comfortable. Hiring golf clubs and trolleys from us saves a considerable sum in aircraft carriage costs and means that you don't have to try to squeeze your clubs into the car with you suitcases. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Great house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Dad loved – being able to walk to golf and the sea fishing so no hassle over who gets the car; price of golf at only €25 so I played three times; golf clubs available from the owners so no extra luggage to pay for at the airport

Mum loved – a real kitchen with ‘proper’ equipment; a private balcony so I could sunbathe without people looking at my wobbly bits; space to read in peace away from the kids; good selection of books there when I ran out

Kate (aged 17) loved – my own balcony and space away from the parents (!); decent hairdryer and mirror etc; being able to walk to the beach without having to get someone to drive me there; karting

Chloe (aged 12) loved – the ice cream shop; playing padel tennis (and I beat Kate once); the swimming pool; the waterpark

Ticks all the boxes. We will be back. Thank you Alan and Jacky.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We're glad you enjoyed your stay. Having two sunny and private terraces in addition to the garden does give plenty of options for peace and quiet. We also have golf pull trolleys available to hire with the clubs if needed - big saving on golf course hire rates. Beware - the padel tennis is addictive!

Costa de la Luz is one of Spain's best kept secrets with miles of unspoilt blue ribbon beaches backed with pine forests & sand dunes. Water sports are popular and south west facing coast provides fabulous sunsets. Other activities nearby include birdwatching at the local lake & nature reserve, horse riding, racing at the karting circuit or cooling down in the summer at the water park. For some true Spanish culture and architecture, visit some of the many small towns and villages or spend a day in Seville. Other excursions include boats trip us the river guardiana between Spain & Portugal, the Rio Tinto Mining Museum or a foot ferry to the sand spit (La Flecha) opposite Nuevo Portil.

For golfers there are many excellent courses within an hours easy drive for players of all abilities. Green fees are often half the prices found in Portugal and courses are much quieter.

This is a fabulous area for families & couples seeking lovely beaches, golf or just some relaxing sunshine.

Other Activities: Bird watching, karting, water park (seasonal)

Golf: Costa Esuri: Two courses West and East. The West is a long course but easy walking with some stunning views of the bridge linking Spain and Portugal over the Guadiana river and the natural marshland. It is a riverside parkland course with a real links feel. It is intended that it will host tour events but the fairways are wide and fair. The East is designed with holiday golf in mind with seven lakes. Despite being on a large development the courses have a very natural feel to them.

Dunas de Doñana: Dunas de Doñana Golf Club is located at the southern end of one of the most important national parks in Europe, La Cota de Doñana, and close to the Atlantic Ocean. This location provides a real golfing gem with challenging holes well protected in many cases with water and bunkering.
