Costa de la Luz - Cadiz villa description
The villa is situated by the sea in the urbanization of Atlanterra, West of Zahara de los Atunes; a stroll down the garden leads to the beach at Cabo de la Plata. The villa is about 30 years old and has a mature garden of palm trees, hibiscus and bougainvillea. The beach is a fine clean stretch of golden sand, which stretches for several miles to the little town of Zahara and on to Barbate; the sea is lively and shells wash up with every tide. A quiet road passes behind the property, leading to the lighthouse at Cabo de Gracia, past gardens and whitewashed walls. Downstairs, the lower level leads straight out into the garden and also looks out to sea through the palms. A tiled terrace area extends to the beach steps.
About Zahara de los Atunes: Zahara is a small tourist town built around an old fishing village which has been known to produce excellent fish since Phoenician times, when tuna was first trapped in traditional nets (almadrabas) extending from the coast. The ruins of the Castillo de la Almadraba built in the 15th century by the Duques of Medina Sidonia can still be seen in the village. The surrounding area is almost untouched by mass tourism, and only in the summer months it turns into one of the most popular beach resorts of the Andalusian Costa de la Luz. The longest beach in the area is this massive stretch of white, fine, golden sand and crystal clear waters, just over 8 km in length, and spans the length from Zahara to el Cabo de Plata. It is all ideal for windsurfing and diving and offers a wide range of services. The ocean is sometimes rough but always beautiful. Occasionally, a school of whales swim along the shore.
Activities in the local area: Around Zahara and Atlanterra there are several nature reserves to be visited, such as the expansive national park La Breña y Marismas de Barbate, with its pine forests and salt marshes, where many endemic species of plants and animals can be found. The whole area is characterized by en extraordinary biological diversity and is known as a bird watchers’ paradise, since it lies on the route of migratory birds on their way to Africa. Great hiking trails along the coast and horse riding along the beach or in the forests invite the active tourist to explore the beauty of this area. Of course windsurfing, kitesurfing, sailing, and all watersports are possible. The windswept town of Tarifa, only 30 km away, is known as Spain’s most famous surf spot.
Daytrips: For the culturally interested visitor, the province of Cádiz, historically frequented by various cultures such as the Vikings, Berbers, Phoenicians, and Romans, is full of surprising sites to explore. Nearby, you can visit the ruins of Baelo Claudia, a major town built by the Romans, from where fish preserves were exported all over the Roman Empire. Vejer de la Frontera, one of Spain’s famous white villages, lies on a hilltop just 15 km from Zahara. 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. Daytrips to Morocco and whale watching trips in the Straights of Gibraltar are not to be missed.
