Golfers? We’re tee’d-up to help you

Stunning local nature & wildlife: Ideal for walking, cycling, painting or just relaxing, the area is set in acres of Pine woodland & boasts stunning local scenery, nature, birds & wildlife (90% protected no-build area prevents over-development) next to the Donana National Park - one of the last great wildernesses of Europe & home to flamingos & the rare Iberian Lynx. The beautiful mountains of Andalucia are also nearby. In addition to Nuevo Portil's peaceful, chilled-out atmosphere, on its doorstep is the wonderfully tranquil village of El Rompido with a newly-built marina and multiple fine fish restaurants. The nearest large town is Huelva, 20kms away, hosting many fine shops, historical sites & familiar Spanish cobbled squares & walkways.

*Unlike many of the other ‘Costas’ that are swamped by foreigners, Costa de la Luz is swamped instead with an abundance of blue flag beaches, golf courses and 90% protected countryside. It is one of the Spaniards’ best kept secrets – they all love to go there on holiday themselves!

Activities & Eating Out: Nuevo Portil is on a 120km stretch of uninterrupted golden beaches, for which Huelva has been awarded the European Blue Flag for many years due to their variety, quality and beautiful natural surroundings.

In addition to 'sight-seeing' the area also offers some fantastic golf courses, or for the more adventurous, fun activities such as kite-surfing, go-carting, a water-park, horse riding, a wide array of water sports and cultural activites such as local 'ferias'. There are also many new cycle paths developed through the local forests.

...If this all may prove a little too much, it is still an ideal place to just come and relax..! The garden & sun terraces benefit from sun all day long and into the evening.

The swimming pools (adult & toddler pools, with lifeguard) is only 20m from the front door, but far enough away that its noise won't disturb you.

Padel tennis courts (Spanish game - cross between tennis & squash, entertaining to watch & even more fun to play!) are sunk down into the ground at the rear of the property as well as a large grassy lawn, shaded with trees.

Highly recommend is the local cuisine & wonderful wines at the excellent seafood restaurants, tapas & beach bars nearby. There are a number of restaurants in the area within walking distance, but even more by car (within a 10 min drive there are about another 20 places situated around the villages of El Portil, El Rompido and along all the beaches).

Night Life, Weather & Group Bookings: There are great local bars & watering holes (as in any traditional Spanish coastal village), but if you really want to paint the tiles, nearby Huelva is cracking for the night life! It’s far enough away that it doesn't disturb the local tranquility, yet is only a short ride in a cab & it tends to be extremely busy at the weekends especially. The Spaniards keep the clubs open & rocking until 8am including a fantastic one in an old castle…

…or you might prefer to stay ‘close to home’ to watch sport in the local Sports Bar.


With 300 days sunshine a year in the Costa de La Luz, it’s hot practically all year round, rarely dropping below 20C even in winter (check out

Enjoy your lunch outside on one of the three patios / sun terraces…

Bookings for Groups

We will gladly help plan trips for groups and even help plan itineries: We can arrange transport to and from the airport and during your stay and organise a variety of activities to suit for you to do while here. Just let us know what tickles you!

£300 Refundable Security Deposit payable in cash upon arrival.

What Maria loved about your listing:

La casa es perfecta! Con todo tipo de comodidades. Espaciosa, aire acondicionado en todas las habitaciones y todo lo que se pueda desear durante una estancia vacacional. Hay sillas para la playa, todo tipo de juegos, raquetas de padel, palos para jugar al golf, libros, DVDs... de todo! Incluso todo lo que necesitamos para nuestra bebé (trona, bañera, cuna, flotadores...). Paul ha sido un anfitrión inmejorable. Pendiente de todo hasta el más mínimo detalle! Siempre disponible! Las piscinas son ideales y la playa se encuentra a un paseito, así que genial todo! La recomiendo al 100%! Mil gracias de nuevo a Paul (y a las chicas que nos recibieron) por todo!!! Nuevo Portil es una gozada de lugar. Todo estuvo perfecto! No descarto repetir en un futuro!

Cambridgeshire, UK

Great apartment. Very pleasant stay June 09.

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed an excellent break in this very well appointed and modern holiday apartment in Nuevo Portil in June 09.

Very spacious and tastefully furnished dining and living room area with terrace. Three bedrooms of which two have their own terrace areas with views over adjacent golf course and woodland. Well maintained swimming pool available in the centre of the apartment complex.

Close proximity to sea (c. 10 minute walk). Enjoyed the beautiful long beach which has dunes at the eastern end. Great for swimming and water sports. Bars and restaurants available within walking distance in Nuevo Portil town. Would recommend the Bar Restaurante As De Oro in Nuevo Portil (you can find it on Calle Camaleon towards the eastern side of the town). Extremely friendly and generous owner (Antonio). Town has an authentic spanish feel to it.

Easy access via road from Seville – would definitely recommend spending a day in Seville itself. Nearby Huelva very interesting too – Columbus sailed from here – visited an interesting museum about him where you can go on replicas of his ships. Very successful and relaxing holiday.

Owner's Response: We're glad that the 'Cycling Man & his Clan' enjoyed themselves and we look forwards to welcoming this group back again this coming year! Yes, there are quite a few new & extensive leisure cycle & walking paths starting just a stone's throw away, right through the surrounding green bank of pine forests and connecting plenty of the seaside villages, beaches & beach bars & restaurants along the coast. The beach is just 500m from the front door. Sailing, (sunset) cruises, canoeing and even sailing lessons can all be easily arranged, as we did for this group. We're not surprised also that they found a good local bar - the locals are so so friendly and fun loving - we'll have to look up Antonio ourselves!!! The house is stocked with an information package about local sights of interest, such as Columbus' Port (as mentioned in this review), and we can gladly send you much of this electronically in advance when you book so that you can plan in advance what you'd like to do...

Superb house - high quality and great complex

  • 5 of 5

This house is very well equipped and well looked after. Friendly owner who communicated productively with us. Complex where the house is located is also very smart, with excellent paddle courts (we took a couple of bats we'd bought cheaply on-line and some balls) and a swimming pool which we didn't use. Short walk down to the beach, shops and bars/cafes/restaurants nearby. Locals friendly despite our lack of Spanish. If you're into golf, the course goes just out the back of the complex - not something we care for I admit!

We will go again!

Nice house to stay, pool opens May 15

  • 3 of 5

Friendly contact via email with owner Mr Malone finalizing the booking and a also a phone call from Titan properties before arrival.

Titan (Antonia) was very helpful during our stay. Sad we didn't read the pool was closed until May 15th. With two very young children a huge disappointment. No alternatives either in surrounding area only a public pool in Cartaya 15 minutes away. Tip EUR 37 for a two week entry!

The nearby AC Hotel at the entrance opens June 1st.

Sandy beaches enough, all with shower and drinking water. Cleaner beaches / water with less seeweeds etc can be found on the way to Punta Umbria.

The beach area close to property is beautifull and safe to swim but water is mixed with sweet water from river mouth and was not very inviting with mud to cross.

On the other side of the sand barrier clean water and beach (Atlantic ocean side). Ferry to sand barrier runs in low season only from El Rompido.

El Rompido has some nice restaurants and terraces. Caribe II is very good.

Beach near Bar / restaurant Cheringueto Costa Recife on way to Punta Umbria is very clean and the owner of bar is very nice and prices are low. It looks shabby but food was cheap and drinks were good.

Be aware photo from house at pool area is not the house were you actually stay.

At rear of house (fenced garden) are three paddle courts which are open until late. Lots off noise.

Master bedroom matrass is 190 cm but in Spain this size is normal.

No wifi in the house and Sky Sat tv is recently blocked outside UK. So only Spanish channels during our stay. Lots of DVD and books and games.

We had some things which were not OK but Antonia organized several things for us.

Would certainly recommend a car.

A hidden gem of a villa!

  • 5 of 5

A most well equipped, well looked after villa catering for in our case 4 adults and 3 young children. The villa is well stocked with all you could need for a home from home including some UK television. The villa is very spacious and has a lovely, private patio / garden area. Situated in gated community means you feel 100% safe during your stay. The complex has a lovely pool and three astro turf tennis courts. Within walking distance there is a nice, quiet beach and just a short drive to the nearest village finds you a range of amenities and restaurants. We also discovered several nice playgrounds for our little ones. There are lots of other towns and villages less than an hours drive and well worth a visit. Our overall stay was very good and we would definitely consider returning and exploring this hidden gem further!

Happy holiday

  • 5 of 5

Arrived early morning very tired only to be met with a lovely house and a welcoming bottle of wine the fridge already cold and the beds made.. The house is very welcoming, pretty and yet functional. The patio on the first floor is a lovely sun trap and thats only one of three...The surrounding area is beautiful and peaceful the beach is just a 10 minute stroll away and the 2 pools in the complex are just 2 minutes from the house. If you are looking for night clubs this is not the holiday for you but if you are looking for peaceful family or friend oriented then this is perfect. There are lots of friendly places to eat serving fantastic food at a range of prices. I would recomend hiring a car as this will allow you to explore the wonderful area and lots of recomendations are given by the owners. This holiday was perfect for us 3 adults and a 1 year old child but equally a group of up to 8 people of any age would have a great time..Hope to book again for next year. Would i recommend this?? a big fat yes...

sun,sand & surf superb!

  • 5 of 5

Let’s start with the villa:Perfect!

Fantastically appointed you couldn’t want for anything more, right down to supplying you with beach towels, chairs/umbrellas and I mustn’t forget the cool-box, brilliant!

All bedrooms are large bright and air conditioned.

Ample storage in each of the rooms means you won’t be falling over holiday bags throughout your stay.

Bathrooms are well appointed the fact you have two full size bathrooms (bath, shower, toilet) as well as another separate toilet on the ground floor is great.

The kitchen is complete with washing machine/oven /micro/toaster/coffee percolator all cutlery/plates/cups/glasses etc.

The lounge/dinning is a great size and plenty large enough for good sized gatherings(Tv/dvd/books/games etc)

Outdoors (rear patio area) is of good size, as well as being nice and private it gets the best of the sunshine through the day.

You have a big table and plenty of chairs; sit back and watch the sunset with a local vino, what a way to finish a hard day on the beach.

Around this gated community (very secure) you will find manicured grounds that accommodate a large pool and a smaller toddler pool (life-guard on duty) lots of trees gives you a good option when you have worshipped the sun for long enough.

You will also find 4 tennis courts available just off the rear patio area.

The gardens within the complex are immaculate and if you are a keen golfer then it doesn’t get much closer as you have an 18 hole course on your door step and a very nice bar/restaurant for that well deserved finish to the game.

The little group of shops are selling local fresh produce it’s all absolutely delicious, 2kg of the best strawberries I have had in my life for €2.50 you can’t go wrong!

A quick note on the beaches, there is not a bad beach amongst them, white sand, crystal clear water (and warm) very safe for the young to the young at heart, we visited many and loved them all.

Out-door sports, take your pick.

Sailing, snorkeling, diving, fishing, water skiing, swimming, windsurfing, golf, tennis, bike riding (great paths along the beaches)


If you are worried about keeping your family busy then don’t; there is something for everyone within short distances.

Our family of five from the old to the new were at the villa for 11 days, not one day was spent thinking what can we do now; we were up and out exploring what I truly believe is a very well kept secret.ssshhhhh.

We will return!

An hour's drive from Faro and Seville airports: On a 120km stretch of uninterrupted golden Blue Flag beaches on the Spanish Algarve: 20 minutes drive from the Portuguese border & the Portuguese Algarve and one hour by motorway to Seville , Cadiz and Jerez - three of Spain 's most atmospheric and interesting cities. The nearest beach is a 500m/10 minute stroll around the local golf course and is protected by a promontory of sand dunes - 'La Flecha' as locally known. This has created a 300 metre-wide sheltered stretch of seawater, which provides a haven for fishing and water sports. One can also catch a local ferry across to the land spit to wander along its deserted 4 kilometre long golden beach and appreciate the natural, unspoilt beauty that it has to offer. The area also features a host of nature with stunning local scenery as it is in acres of Pine woodland, next to the Donana National Park - one of the last great wildernesses of Europe & home to flamingos and the rare Iberian Lynx. Nearby are the beautiful Andalucian mountains.

Other Activities: Go-Karting, Waterpark

Golf: Where to start…?

The property is located in the midst of a cluster of courses, from Nuevo Portil itself to El Rompido, Bellavista, Islantilla, Isla Canela and Dunas de Donana all within an hours drive maximum giving enough variety for a new course every day!

Nuevo Portil’s own golf course covers an area of 46 hectares, completely surrounded by pine trees. Founded in 2002, the exquisite design by Alfonso Viador maintains its initial flavour with wide fairways and soft pleasant greens. While the course's smart technical design is suitable for international championships, golfers of every level will find the course enjoyable. Likewise the El Rompido golf has just seen its second 18-hole course open June 2008, and it is surrounded by natural marshes and parklands with views to the sea.

Over the holes of the courses you will always enjoy the heat &beautiful scenery of the coastline of Huelva Province: never ending dune beaches, ocean vistas, pines and century-old savins…

There is the option to pay tee fees from the UK that might work out cheaper & we also have a very professional team who can also cater for golfing parties – Ladies’ & Men’s – on & off the course. We will arrange minibus/transportation as desired…

**We are TEE’d up to tailor-make you an individual golfing holiday, if that’s what DRIVES you!
