Great family Villa with excellent pool.
El Abeto is a great place to stay. First impressions were it was obvious that the property was well looked after, as it was clean with good facilities. The kitchen lacked nothing as regards utensils, plates, cups & bowls. It was no problem to prepare a meal & the BBQ was big enough to cook for a group of friends that visited for the day.
Beds were surprisingly comfy which is unusual when you go abroad. Wi-fi was excellent as at times all five of us were using it, you can even connect sitting next t o the pool.
Chiclana is a nice place to stay. Our impression of it was that it is a resort that is used mostly by the Spanish, it's certainly not full of rowdy British holidaymakers which is a bonus. La Barrosa beach is beautiful , probably one of the best we've come across in Spain. A trip to Seville is also a must being only about 75 minutes away.
We thoroughly recommend El Abeto & Eileen who looks after the place can't do enough for you. She came out of her way to let us know that the local electric company were doing some repairs in the area the next day & that our electric would be going off.
THANK YOU! It is so lovely to receive praise! I do hope that we will be able to welcome you back very soon. I am extremely glad that you have enjoyed your stay with us (despite the electricity company plying up). We do try!
Wonderful El Abeto
Me, my girlfriend and our Kids (14) started the trip with an VW van T3. We drove all the way at the Sea (~2700km) and it was great, we have seen very nice city's and super pic's to the sea.
At the second day we arived El Abeto, we was so happy to see a verry nice and clean apartment, the big pool and a wonderful place to stay. Two friendly people waited on us to show the area. The apartment got everything you need, a modern kitchen, real nice bedrooms, verry good bathrooms ...
We enjoyed the sea (not packed with people) nice sand, the many restaurants and the sun all the day.
It was my best holiday at all. I will be there again for sure :-))
Disappointing! The owner did not inform us that
the tap water is salty and not only unfit for drinking but also not suitable for use in cooking or even brushing your teeth. If that was not enough the water pump that pumps the water from the well into the property kept going off and we had to go a few times a day to reset it, we had that for a whole week when we left it had still not been fixed. Overall we did not get what we paid for it is worth half the rent being asked and only if you are prepared to put up with salty water in the swimming pool too.
The lady in question objected to being charged for the microwave that was burned on the INSIDE from misuse ie. not through any electrical fault.
Her objection to slightly salty water in the property is unreasonable as this happens all over southern Spain especially in places that are close to the sea. All people living in the Costa de la Luz area use bottled water and supermarkets supply it in gallon bottles for approx.59 cents a bottle. Not one of my clients in the last 4 years found this to be a problem.
As for the swimming pool- people pay a fortune to have salt water systems instead of chlorine ones. All the best spas have them.
She had both my telephone number and e-mail address but did not contact me while staying in my villa. She chose to do so after her arrival home and after telling both my caretaker and gardener that she had a really good holiday.
Hello, we had our holiday here in Chiclana at El Abeto. It was a very, very good holiday. We didn't expect such a top house. The pool was absolute fantastic and the right size for our children to play waterball and more. Though the very hot weather, we always slept well in the house.
Everything was fine, but you have to go buy car for everything you need. It was very quiet. A Bar in the near would be fine.
We all had a wonderful holiday at El Abeto. The pool is amazing and the gardens large enough for our boys to play ball games. The house was equipped with everything one could possibly need and was very comfortable- even at the height of the Spanish heatwave we had no problems sleeping. The beaches nearby were incredibly beautiful and the position of the house made it an ideal base for exploring the area.
We will definitely be back.
Pretty villa! The garden is really nice and you have everything you need to enjoy relaxing near the swimming pool and having lunches and dinners outside. The house is very well equipped ( I love cooking and I found the kitchen even better than mine!) and kept and we found the owner and the people taking care of the place very helpful and nice.
The place is very well located and the beaches there are really wonderful. It was not our first time in Chiclana but this has been the best for all of us. No doubt where we will stay next time in Costa de la Luz. Thank you!
Great nearby places to visit: CADIZ - the oldest still inhabited city in Europe. From here the Conquistadors overwhelmed much of Latin America and looted gold enriched the town.
JEREZ - home of the famous Royal School of Equestrian Art and the centre of the world's sherry production. It is also known for motor sports (Moto GP and Formula One). TARIFA - Moorish walled town, looking like mini Marrakech, hosts world windsurfing championships. From here boats take you to Morocco or whale and dolphin spotting in the Straits of Gibraltar. EL PUERTO DE SANTA MARIA - Columbus set sail for the Americas in a vessel named after the town. LA DONANA - largest wildlife reserve in Spain (50,000 hectares). 300,000 birds representing 120 species as well as lynx, wild boar and otters. MEDINA SIDONIA - the Duke of Medina Sidonia led the Spanish Armada's attack on England. Spectacular views over the area from its walls. SEVILLE - this Spanish jewel is well worth the 75 minute drive.
