Zahara des los Atunes is the best kept secret in Spain and this apartment has the best location and views in this wonderful village. The apartment is perfectly appointed with spectacular, undisturbed views of the amazing beach. The apartment is really comfortable, has every modern amenity and feature to ensure a great stay, including access to a very private pool, on the ground level, with direct access from the pool area to the beach.

We were spoiled for choice with lunch and dinner venues. We stayed for a week and ate in a different restaurant for lunch and dinner every day. Each restaurant got better and better as the week went on. My only regret is that we missed the Tuna Festival in early May. We will definitely be back next year. I can't recommend this apartment or Zahara highly enough!

The nicest apartment we've ever stayed in.

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we came in the door we both said, wow! The photos don't even do this apartment justice because the main living room space (and bedroom) have large windows all over looking the huge, long beautiful sandy beach. It's the only apartment we've stayed in where you can sunbathe inside as in the late afternoon the sun comes into the main living room. It's got such a nice feel to it, with so much light.It is beautifully decorated with attention to detail and real care. In the late evening you can watch the sunset. One evening a group of horse riders came past just as the sun was setting.

Zahara itself is fast becoming a gastro town with superb tapas bars, El Campero & Zoko (a few minutes walk from the apartment) to name but two. The only thing which would improve it is perhaps a small TV in the main living room as this is the space we just loved to be in most of the time. The apartment is very well equipped throughout.. We loved it that much we booked for next year whilst we were still there! (And as a rule we like to try new places).

Bravo Marie-Aude, this is our favourite apartment in Spain and we've stayed in many over the years!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your excellent review and the 5 *! It is true that the website photos don't do the apartment justice.. and that the "wow" factor is even greater when you step in! And yes, the cuisine in Zahara is superb and getting better every year! You are the first person to mention a TV for the main living area: I thought that one TV in the dining area was sufficient, but I will take your comment on board. I am delighted to welcome you back next year!

Magnifique !

  • 5 of 5

Endroit magnifique ! Hôtesse très disponible : même si elle n'est pas sur place, elle répond à nos demandes et interrogations. L'appartement est immense ! La vue est splendide ! Le village est tout à fait charmant, surtout en soirée ! Nous avions prévu visiter la côte, de Cadix à Tarifa, finalement, nous sommes restés à Zahara !

Happy Days

  • 5 of 5

What a charming place to stay! This is a wonderful apartment with panoramic views. Maybe brilliant is a better word to describe this bright and light home away from home, full of sea sparkle. I knew it was on beach with sea views, but it really is on the beach. Sitting on the couch, or at the table I could see the fishermen taking out their boats, mammoth ocean liners making their way into the Atlantic from the Straits of Gibraltar and tantalising close –the coast of Africa. It was amazing to think that for thousands of years sailors and traders have landed on this coast, Phoenicians, Romans and Moors obviously it remains a popular spot.

I slept like a log in my comfortable bed, with crisp white linen and woke to clear blue skies. Easy to conjure up a tasty breakfast in the well equipped kitchen, or head out for breakfast in one of the many good restaurants only 2 minutes walk away along the sandy streets. Naturally only after having a wake me up coffee from the Nespresso machine – how civilized!

Zahara is a lovely town. Lots of very good restaurants, very friendly staff, and excellent food. It’s all here, Spanish traditional, Spanish modern and Spanish cool and hip. And that was the key for me – it is Spanish. This is a holiday town, but it is an absolute Spanish holiday town. It is another world from Costa del Sol and if you are looking for real Spain and more precisely real Andalucia this is it. The locals are welcoming and chatty, justly proud of their delightful and pleasant town. Everybody was most keen to engage with us and recommend things to do, places to go and food to taste.

Zahara is a great base to explore from. Barbate is a good sized town only 7 km away, if you need something you can’t find in Zahara. We went to Cadiz, Vejer de la Frontera, Medina Sidonia and even Africa for the day from Tarifa. Along the way saw flamingos and some very rare Bald Ibis (s) – not sure how you spell that. All of these lovely places are close enough to allow some afternoon beach time, if you are not interested in beach time – there are any amount of places to visit. If you are interested in beach time – there is no need to ever leave you can walk out the door onto the beach or lounge by the private pool.

Marie Aude was very helpful and very knowledgeable about the area, and had great suggestions about places to go and things to do.

This is a lovely place for a holiday, this is a lovely, tastefully decorated, pristine clean and comfortabl

We stayed in this beautiful apartment in late October and early November 2014 and I would honestly say had one of the best holidays we have ever had. A really balanced combination of doing everything and doing nothing in perfect temperatures of the early 20˚s.

You know what they say - location is everything; well this spectacular location, directly on the finest sandy beach, which must stretch for 15km or more?, meant early morning walks, then something tasty from the bakery with freshly brewed coffee on the balcony, and sunset strolls, sometimes for miles along the beach or sometimes just standing there in awe – and all on the doorstep!

No matter where the day was spent, mooching around all the old towns and cities nearby - Cadiz with its lovely narrow streets and shops bursting with the finest leathers, or Jerez to sample the sherries in the old bodegas, or the lovely Vejer de la Frontera sitting high on top of the hill to one side of Zahara, or walking in the hills above Barbate or Bolonia we would finish the day back in the waves at Zahara before the evening aperitif (sherry for one and the finest Spanish wine for the other!), leaning over the balcony of the apartment and watching the sun go down and the lights of Tangier begin to appear in the distance. Magic.

This is a beautiful, fully equipped apartment and I love the nautical theme – blue and white everywhere, we lacked for nothing. It even has its own telescope to watch the shipping and the stars!

Extremely friendly local people (went to the Library for lunch as you recommended, and because the barman/waiter knew we didn’t understand what the dish of the day was, he brought the pot to the table to show us!) There is even a hardware store in the village, with basement and more upstairs, so someone was very happy!!

We flew into Malaga and had a very easy journey, motorway (starts at the airport!) nearly all the way, to Zahara de los Atunes. Great location for visiting Trafalgar, Gibraltar, Cadiz, Jerez, the hill towns of the old frontier and even a short hop (1 hour ferry) from Tarifa to Tangier for a day trip to Africa.

Holiday Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a week (Sept. 2014) at this incredible apartment located directly on the beach in the wonderful village of Zahara de los Atunes. The apartment is very spacious, clean, and very comfortable. The views over the beach and ocean are spectacular, sunsets are incredible. You are directly on the beach, which is long and wide, so there are no crowds of people near the apartment. It is very quiet at night. A two minute walk brings you directly into town, a beautiful white village with numerous bars, restaurants, shops and markets. Although some great day trips are within an hour (Cadiz, El Puerto de Santa Maria, Bolonia Beach with Roman ruins, Jerez, and several other villages along the ocean) it is very relaxing to just soak up all Zahara has to offer while staying in this great apartment. Marie, the owner is very easy to communicate with and her hospitality is a real addition to the overall pleasure of staying at "Sunset Atico". We will definitely return!
