Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Costa de la Luz - Cadiz - Cortijo del Huerto

sleeps 4, large garden with pool, 200 m to the sandy beaches

El Cortijo del Huerto forms part of a completely renovated, typical Andalusian farmyard. Hidden between plants and trees, it is situated at only 150 m from the magnificent beach of El Palmar. It has a lounge, an open-plan kitchen with dining area, a bathroom and one bedroom with double bed downstairs, and a bed gallery with two single beds upstairs. It is very tastefully decorated, in a modern and rustic local style, and fully equipped with microwave, washing machine, refrigerator, stereo, etc. It has a beautiful fenced garden with a small swimming pool for exclusive use of the guests. From the garden, you have beautiful views of the surrounding countryside.

(For further info or to view the owner's website, please do not hesitate to contact the owner of the property).

Conil de la Frontera: Conil is one of the most popular seaside resorts on the Coast of Light. On it's 7 mile coast, different types of beaches can be found : open and extensive, small coves surrounded by cliffs. Some of the characteristics of rural southern Spain can be perceived through rich agricultural small holdings. The architecture is alive reflecting fishing, trade, and the religious side of the town, thanks to it's preservation the town has been declared a historical artistic monument. Conil is rich in traditions, it produces craft work, especially pottery. The gastronomy is abundant from the fertile fishing and farming grounds.

Vejer de la Frontera: This is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful towns, not only in Andalusia, but in Spain. It has been declared an historical artistic monument, and was awarded the'Premio Nacional de Embellecimiento'. Thanks to it's privileged location, on a hill 190 meters above sea level, it offers an amazing view of the surrounding countryside. The twisty narrow streets are a walk through the rich and varied history of this town. Particularly prominent is the influence of the Arabs who held the town for 593 years.

Cape Trafalgar and Zahora: From the famous lighthouse of Cape Trafalgar direction north-east you arrive at the beautiful white sand beach of Zahora. Because of the lagoons formed at low tide, makes this a popular beach for families with small children. Lots of fun can be had snorkeling in the crystalline waters.This area is frequented mainly by nature lovers who come to enjoy the beauty and tranquility it has to offer.

a beautiful little house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at the cortijo! It's much more than just a holiday rental, from the first moment you step in, you feel like home. It was very clean, had a beautyful interieur, a very nice garden&pool - and you really have privacy, which makes it easy to have a relaxing stay.

Thanks a lot juan antonio for the very friendly welcome and the fresh eggs in the morning.

We will return

Best regards

Ulrike and Carlos

A wonderful oasis of calm

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in El Palmar; not only is the beach unusually underdeveloped for Spain (its more of a surfer hang-out), but Juan Antonio's house was just perfect. Clean, well appointed, with every you could need, and full of character (and five minutes tops from the beach). The pool is small and well-kept, and the garden is huge and beautifully looked after. Juan Antonio is a charming, patient and knowledgable host, and his cats and dogs are equally agreeable. You could not ask for more - the perfect place to relax in Andalucia.

Our paradise in Andalusia

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Cortijo del Huerto. We enjoyed again so much. Especially we like the big garden, the pool and the proximity to the beach.

Our kids like to play with the dogs and the cats. It is a true place to calm and relax. Juan is so friendly and helpful.

While El Palmar is developing (a lot of nice bars with Quality Drinks and Entertainment) this house is a quiet oasis.

We will come back definitely.

Peaceful oasis in walking distance from the beach

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house with pool in a peaceful property.

The property consists of three houses, which build up what seems a little paradise in walking distance from the beach, still away from the crowd. Very clean an perfectly well maintained, with great attention to detail!

The owner is very friendly and helpful. The welcome included free eggs from the chicken which were kept at the place. Our children loved to feed the chicken, and to play with the dogs and cats at the place.

The sandy beaches are long and clean. If you are a runner, you may use the morning hours to run to cap Trafalgar (lighthouse), sports activities include surfing, windsurfing and kitesurfing - very affordable surfing schools and rentals within walking distance - try "pata negra" for surfing classes.

Plan to visit Vejer (white village) and Cadiz.

A lovely holiday at a beautiful vacation home!

Thank you Juan Antonio, we will certainly visit again!

Peaceful vibe - little oasis in Andalucia

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing time in El Cortijo del Huerto! Juan is such a warm hearted person - always there to help - the house is furnished with a lot of beautiful detail. Everything is cleand and tidy. The kitchen has everything you need. Every knife is sharp, every pan in a perfect condition. We were there with a teenager and a 12 year old. You can have wonderful family time in this little oasis and if you walk a few meters you have the beach and some entertainment. Thank you Juan for everything. We would love to come back soon!!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely property, an eclosed garden inside a gated compound so very safe but also very private despite there being four properties in total in the compound, one of which is Juan's home. Juan was an ideal host, available to give advice when asked but otherwise invisible. Our daily guests included two of the dogs, a host of cats and many chickens. Fresh eggs daily was an added bonus. The bedrooms had limited storage space, none at all in the upstairs section but apart from that the place was well stocked from a kitchen point of view and generally very comfortable. To be recommended.
