Acquapendente villa description

Very spacious, luxury 4 double bedroom and 4 bathroom villa in exclusive quiet gated development with spectacular views directly overlooking the Islantilla Golf Course. Large private sun/roof terrace and secluded private patio and lawned garden. Set in beautiful well maintained tropical gardens containing 2 attractive pools and tennis court. Close to main beach/resort, golf club house and miles of unspoilt sandy beaches including two sand dune national parks. There are also 6 other championship golf courses within half hour's drive. Faro/Seville airports approx 1 hour by car.


Booking Details: Holding booking deposit required of £250 per week to reserve accommodation. Full payment is then required 2 months before departure date. A £50 per week refundable key/damage deposit is also taken when full payment is made.
On changeover days during the peak season (July and August) we would respectfully request departing guests to vacate by 10am and for incoming guests to arrive after 4pm to allow for full cleaning.
Mid - stay change of linen/towels service available for additional 40 euros.

Seville: The stunning city of Seville is only just over an hour's drive away (120 km) from the property on excellent motorways and this therefore makes it a comfortable and easy day trip from Islantilla. This city is an absolute must see and could easily take up 2 or 3 days of your holiday to see the main sights.
Also importantly the airport is an excellent gateway to the region, particularly as Ryanair now fly there and it is quite possible to book flights from Stansted for as low as £25 per person including taxes!! The airport is large and comfortable but is very quiet compared to the Costa airports and it is therefore very easy and quick to get in and out of the terminal. Car hire is also very cheap and easy to arrange and we can recommend a car hire company where you can get a new 5 door air conditioned car from £100 per week.

Ayamonte/Algarve: The very pretty fishing port and town of Ayamonte on the Spanish/Portuguese border is only 20 minutes drive away and is definitely worth a visit. The town is lined with street cafes and nice boutiques/shops and the freshly caught fish and seafood in the restaurants is a must! A nice place to just stroll around and relax in the cafes.
The Eastern end of the Portuguese Algarve is also worth a day trip or two. It is a beautiful and largely unspoilt region with lovely long sandy beaches, small fishing ports and villages and attractive national parks. The historical town of Tavira is only 40 mins drive away and has a lovely square next to the river and contains a hilltop castle/gardens, churches and other ancient buildings. It is also lined with street cafes and restaurants.

                  Car: Recommended

                  The property is situated in the beach and golf resort of Playa Islantilla which is in the central area of the stunning Costa de la Luz coastline running between the Portuguese border town of Ayamonte and the main city of the region Huelva to the east. The area is famed for its long sandy beaches fringed with sand dunes and pine forests and there are numerous national parks of this type in the area. Within a few minutes drive of the property is the main Islantilla beach resort and commercial plaza containing over 20 different types of restaurants where you can sit in comfort with direct views over the sea. The region is famed for its fresh fish and seafood. It is also full of championship golf courses. It is also relatively unspoilt and some Spanish is still needed even in cafes!

                  Golf: The region is famed for its many golf courses and there are in fact - in addition to the 27 hole championship standard Islantilla golf course onto which our property overlooks- another 5 comparable courses within half hour's drive. Those being Nuevo Portil, El Rompido, Isla Canela, Bellavista and Castro Marim (Portuguese Algarve).

                  Not much further and certainly no more than an hour's drive are some of the best golf courses in the region, including Quinta da Cima and Quinta da Ria in Portugal and the Real Club de Golf Seville - apparently one of the best and most challenging in Spain designed by Jose Maria Olazabal!

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  About the owner: We are a family with two children and have owned our holiday home for nearly 10 years now. I am English and my wife Anneli is Swedish and we live permanently in Oxfordshire, UK.

                  Why the Owner Chose Acquapendente:
                  We love the area which is very beautiful and relatively unspoilt. We spend two or three weeks a year at the villa and the children adore it, especially the swimming pool and tennis court!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                  Very safe, quiet and peaceful with stunning views yet very close to the sea and main amenities. The swimming pools/tropical gardens and roof terraces mean you do not have to go anywhere if you do not wish to. It all makes for a very relaxing summer holiday!
