Hi, my name is Berna, I live in Ireland with my husband Charly, we both love Spain and speak the language. We spent 3 years searching for our ideal home in the sun and we bought villa Cuba Libre in 2006. Our favourite city is Seville and we visit every year usually for the Feria in April, to visit the sights to eat Tapas and drink the local brew Cruz Campo. We go to Jerez for the International Flamenco Festival in Feburary/March, the Feria of Horses in Jerez in May or The Wine Harvest Festival in September. We love to spend time in Cuba Libre as it offers total relaxation. We are very active and love to walk and cycle in the area (5 minutes) from the villa is Pinar de Hierro y Espartossa National Park.) We run and swim on La Barrosa Beach. We go to the market of Chiclana and buy fresh locally grown vegetables, fresh fish and meat for the BBQ.
Owner purchased this Villa in 2006
Why Owner chose Chiclana de la Frontera
We bought the villa which we named after our favourite drink, Cuba Libre (ingredients are: Cacique rum, CocaCola, drops of Angostura Bitters, juice of half a lime from the garden and ice). We added a pool and patio garden with a built in BBQ. This year we put a Wood Burner which adds warmth and coziness to the villa during the winter. It is in the perfect location to get away from the hustle and bustle of life and relax at the same time. Chiclana is only 5 minutes drive away. Easy access to Seville, Cadiz, Jerez and Malaga. The village of Pago Del Humo has a range of bars/restaurants serving authentic food at very reasonable prices. It has a pharmacy, mini supermarket with daily fresh hot baked bread. Lose yourself in Seville spend a day tasting delicious cheap tapas, finding unique shops and hidden treasures everywhere. The Andalusian capital has it all. The Chiclana Fair begins with the holiday of San Antonio, 13 June, and forms one of the most important party dates in the Chiclana calendar. Andalusian tradition and spirit is everywhere: Flamenco and Sevillanas Music, food, sherry, the typical fair-dresses for women and men... for one week Chiclana will be partying day and night
What makes this Villa unique
Cuba Libre is convenient to a magnificent coastline that stretches for miles with golden sand and promenades, the beaches are never crowded and you have the choice of the more commercial or the tranquil stretches of unspoiled coast. The nearest beach is La Barrosa about 10 minutes by car. Water sports are popular here Trafalgar Surf, in Conil can offer you lessons, equipment hire and general help on where to go for the best surf. This relatively unspoiled area is where the Spanish choose to take their holidays. We can supply beach towels, and a set of golf clubs so visitors can travel light. There are two bicycles available to rent at very reasonable rate to explore the countryside.

Comfortable, clean, home from home
What an amazing villa. 3 happy children, 2 happy parents and 1 happy nanny!
Truly a home away from home - everything you need is here.
The villa was clean, comfortable and we had a brilliant week full of memories. The pool was great for the kids, and although cold when you first jumped in (weather was around 21 degrees), it didn’t stop them from being in the pool all day, every day!
BBQ was fab, fully equipped kitchen, beautiful space.
Thank you for letting us stay for the week.
I am delighted that you and your family enjoyed your holidays in Cuba Libre.
I hope you come back again next year. Berna
The house and pool were perfect very clean and tidy and had everything we needed.
We were there for a wedding, unfortunately the weather was cold in the mornings and at night which meant the pool was too cold to use and to cold to eat outside in the evenings. The only other thing was the barking dogs they never stopped all night, we did sit out one night with blankets and the neighbor complained about us talking was a bit surprised as the dogs did that all night.... but it didn’t mater we have a great stay.
A Hidden Gem
We spent a lovely Christmas in this Villa. It iis in a quiet area with a well maintained garden which is completely prívate. The Villa is very well equipped. We had fresh Orange juice every morning from the tree outside the kitchen
There is heating and a great log burner.
There is a local venta Casa Blas servíng traditional spanish food it's great value and a small supermarket with fresh bread daily.
The Villa is in an excellent location to visit many places of interest , Vejer, Medina Sidonia, Grazalema, Conil and Cádiz.
The beautiful beach La Barrosa is a short drive. Lunch in Los Pescadores is a must.
We had a great stay and would highly recommend it.
Beautiful house in an amazing area of Spain, a real hidden secret. The quaint local bars definitely worth a visit and of course to the amazing beaches of la barrossa and el palmar with there abundance of restaurants (los pescadores highly recommended) BBQ's by the pool im missing already. Cant wait to go back :)
A little piece of paradise
We spent three fantastic weeks in this villa. The villa was spotlessly clean and well equipped. We had many evenings on the porch doing BBQs. The pool was well maintained. The villa is in a perfect location to visit many interesting places I.e Seville, Cadiz, Medina Sidonus, Vejer, Bolonia, Conil and Jerez. La Barrosa is definitely one of the nicest beaches in Spain. We will definitely be back next year.
Lovely Villa and a Lovely holiday
We had a lovely time at the Cuba Libre. Although it is a little difficult to find the first time we soon got our bearings. Also the roads approaching are narrow unmade roads, but don't let this put you off as it is a gem of a villa. Very private with floral lined walls all around. A big thank you to Berna for providing 2 extra sunbeds as there were 6 of us. The villa managers, Leigh and Richard were very helpful and we found the place in a spotless condition. The villa is close to lovely beaches at La Barrosa and Conil. Also within a few minutes drive of Chiclana for shops. We spent most evenings at the villa using the great BBQ. There are a couple of bars within walking distance but would recommend only doing this in daylight hours as an unlit area. We had plenty of fun at the villa though so didn't need to venture out at night. A few days were quite windy but laying on the sunbeds, the wind is not an issue at all. We moved the table under the front porch on the windy days and all was fine to eat there wind free.
We have a magnificent coastline that stretches for miles with golden sand and promenades, the beaches are never crowded and you have the choice of the more commercial or the tranquil stretches of unspoiled coast. The nearest beach is La Barrosa about 15 minutes by car. Water sports are popular here and Laura at Trafalgar surf can offer you lessons, equipment hire and general help on where to go for the best surf.
This relatively unspoiled area is where the Spanish
choose to take their holidays.
Airports: Jerez de la Frontera is 30 minutes. Seville is 1h 15m Gibraltar is 1h 20m Malaga is 1h 5m via motorway. Use of a car is recommended: car hire is available from all airports. There is a local bus service to Chiclana, and from Chiclana there are connections to Cadiz, Jerez and Seville and all the beaches. Madrid is 6 hours drive.
Pago del Humo has all facilities including a pharmacy, a mini supermarket general stores with daily freshly baked hot bread and many bar/restaurants. Chiclana is a 5 minute drive and is a large bustling town with old and new, it has a Tuesday market by the river not to be missed. Jerez famous for its sherry and horses is 40 mins drive, Conil a pretty seaside town is 10 mins drive, Medina Sidonia (over 3000 years old) a white village is 20 mins drive. Cadiz steeped in history is a 35 min drive
White villages set in the hills slightly inland are well worth a visit. Medina Sidonia, Vejer de la Frontera and Arcos are all worth a visit with their hilltop presence and magnificent views, cobblestone streets and beautiful town squares. Sample the Fiestas and Carnivals in the premier city of Seville. Isla Magica (like Alton Towers) is also to be found here for the kids amongst us! Also visit Puerto Santa Maria for the Waterpark. Visit and enjoy the tours around the Sherry and Brandy bodegas of Jerez and for the evening visit one of the many shows from the famous dancing horses to the fabulous Flamenco.
Explore Tarifa famous for its wind and kite surfing and of course its dunes, Roman ruins and plenty of white sands. You can also take a trip whale and Dolphin watching from here.
If you are feeling adventurous take the ferry to Tangiers Morocco and shop till you drop in the Souks also tantalize your taste buds with Moroccan cuisine and a culture with a difference.
Gibraltar with its history, rocks, caves, Barbary Apes and duty free shopping is a good day out, but be prepared for long delays at the border and remember to take your passport!! It's better and cheaper to park outside for the day, walk through and take the buses, a day pass is cheap and the open top buses are fun in the summer.
Take the ferry from Puerto Santa Maria over to Cadiz (the oldest port in Europe) steeped in history and charm with quaint Tapas Bars.
Street markets are a must and will be found on different days in all the local towns.
