The villa is set in its own grounds with a patio and barbecue area set in a lawned garden with trees and shrubs. The garden is fully enclosed and is private and very secure. There is a swimming pool (8x4m) for the sole use of guests and a shaded area is provided to escape the heat of the hot summer sun. Within a 5 minute walk you will find the nearest Venta (bar/restaurant), Casa Blas, where you will always get a welcome reception. This is the busiest Venta in the area although the Florentina, which is approximately 1 kilometre away is also worth a visit. There is a small shop next to Casa Blas which sells basic requirements and is open late in the evening. A Pharmacy is a further 2 minutes walk away. There is a bus stop outside Casa Blas, which takes you into Chiclana, where you can catch buses to other locations. The beach at La Barrosa (Novo Sancti Petri) is a 15 minute drive, the town of Chiclana a 7 minute drive, the city of Cadiz a 20 minutes drive and Gibraltar, for tax free shopping and Rock Tours, a 1 hour drive.

Clean, comfortable, home from home
Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property. Come year after year as we love the villa, pool, garden and location
We have just returned from our 11 night stay at this lovely villa.
On arrival the villa was spotlessly clean and very well presented. It is very well equipped a real home from home.
The weather was fantastic the whole time we were there so it was very difficult to remove ourselves from lying around the pool everyday. We did visit Gibraltar, La Baroosa beach, which is lovely and Cadiz a couple of times. Thoroughly recommend visiting Cadiz a beautiful city with nice beach and lovely buildings and the market is superb.
As the villa was so lovely and the weather so good, we mainly ate at the villa, lots of lovely supermarkets near by with fresh produce.
Overall was a lovely holiday would recommend the villa to couples and families, we came back feeling totally relaxed.
Gary and Gina have been lovely hosts from start to finish, with prompt responses on booking and providing information for our stay, the directions to the villa were spot on,
Perfect family villa
Have just returned from an lovely relaxing family holiday. The villa itself had everything we needed and swimming pool was a great size. The garden space was secure so we felt the children were safe. Gina and Gary answered all questions leading upto our arrival and after that their advisor Eileen in Spain was very helpful. Lovely beaches and plenty to do within the surrounding area. Would definitely return again.
estancia 29-7-2018 al 12-8-2018
Los dormitorios muy bien. La cocina totalmente equipada. Lo que más destacaría serian el jardín y la espectacular piscina. su mantenimiento muy bien. La zona algo alejada de la playa pero muy tranquila y segura. Restaurantes cercanos muy bien. Si tengo que poner algún pero sería el grifo de la ducha y los días de mucho calor a pesar de los ventiladores, se nota la falta de algún aparato de aire acondicionado. nos dio mucha tristeza tener que marcharnos.
A villa with all the facilities available to have an enjoyable stay.
This is the third time we have stayed in the villa, it's has now become a home away from home. The pool is located close to the main living quarters and therefore giving a great family environment. It has all the facilities one wants for a short stay.
Location is great, close to the beach in car, great roads if you cycle and not far from a pine tree forest should you want to do some trail running. There are a few ventas (restaurants) close by, one at walking distance. The food quality in the ventas was great at economical prices.
We will sure return next year.
Nice little villa
We have visited this villa numerous times. It is very well looked after, clean and has all the facilities you need for a nice break. Pool and garden areas are always very well maintained. A home from home, very highly recommended!
The beach at La Barrosa is approx 15 minutes by car and provides miles of golden sand. Along the coast can be found several small villages as well as pine forests and these are well worth visiting. You can take a walk along the long sandy beaches which line the Atlantic coast of Andalucia.
Fly to Jerez from Stanstead which is approx 30-40 minutes from Chiclana. Seville airport is approx 1 hour 30 minutes away, Gibraltar 1 hour 15 minutes and Malaga is approx 2 hours 30 minutes. Ryanair fly to Jerez and Seville from Stansted and to Malaga from Liverpool, East Midlands and Dublin. Easyjet fly to Malaga from Manchester, Gatwick, Stansted and now to Gibraltar from Gatwick.
Situated in Pago del Humo it is approx a 7 minute drive to Chiclana, the nearest town. The historic city of Cadiz is a 20 minute drive away. Gibralter with it's tax free shopping and the rock apes is about an hours drive. Tarifa, for windsurfing is an hours drive, from here you can also get a day trip to Tangier in Morocco. Other places that may be of interest include the Donana National Park, Selwo Wildlife Park, and the city of Seville all within 1 hour 30 minutes drive away.
There are 6 Ventas within walking distance although the liveliest is just at the top of the road and you will always get a friendly welcome from the owner (Blas). The food served is Andalucian and is good and very reasonably priced.
Further afield, a taxi ride away, or you can take the bus to Chiclana and then a further bus, is the resort of Novo Sancti Petri where you will find a wide range of restaurants and bars, including Indian, Italian, Mexican and even a Swiss restaurant (details of locations will be in the information pack in the villa). In the town of Chiclana there are a range of Venta's (bar/restaurants), three Chinese restaurants and an Indian Restaurant.
This is a great area for experiencing real Spain and not a tourist resort. The area is awash with 'Pueblo Blancos' (white villages) and if you go to Vejer de la Frontera you will be assured of a fantastic view across the plains.
The city of Cadiz is a must for a visit where the old meets the new. Take a walk around the old quarter and visit the old market, walk around the walls of the old city or just sit outside a cafe and enjoy a glass of coffee and watch the world go by. At the bottom of the city is a lovely garden with some fantastic bourgainvillea displays.
For guests with children there is a water park, Aqualand, situated near to El Puerto de Santa Maria. The park is open from the middle of June to early September.
