Property description

The penthouse is situated in private gated grounds a few minutes walk from the beach on the beautiful Atlantic coastline of the island gem of Isla Canela. The apartment sleeps six, having three tastefully furnished bedrooms, two of which open onto the western seaboard. The master bedroom also has a full ensuite bathroom. There is a family bathroom, fully equipped kitchen and a large living room which opens onto a truly magnificent sun bathed terrace which boasts the finest views and sunsets on the island. The terrace is fully equipped with tables, chairs and shaded area for relaxed convivial outdoor dining. There is also a raised jacuzzi. A dedicated lift will bring you and your guests straight from the underfloor gated car park to the penthouse. Beneath you lie beautifully manicured gardens, the largest, lowest occupancy pool on the island, tennis courts, play area, showers and privately gated access to the beach.

Active Holiday or Relaxing Rest: The geography and ambient culture of Isla Canela combine to make it a truly refreshing area in which to unwind, whether through the host of available recreational activities, or, by simply lying back, relaxing and chilling out to the rhythms of the waves falling on the beach at night and the village culture of the fishermen of Barrio de Canela and Punta del Moral. Activities there are aplenty - fishing, swimming, windsurfing, cycling, beach volleyball, jogging, walking, golfing, tennis, boating and sailing. Or watch the local villagers celebrate the fiestas with fireworks, mule races, music and dancing from Ayamonte to Villablanca and back. Or relax over coffee and churros in Ayamonte, enjoy a lunch of grilled sardines and chilled wine in a beach 'chiringuito', have a siesta, and then stroll with the Spanish families along the lighted marine promenade, before heading out for a late evening dinner. Or savour your own freshly caught fare as the Western sun sets over the terrace.

In Spain: The town of Ayamonte lies over the bridge, some 15 minutes from the island. It is a vibrant bustling Spanish town, peppered with pleasing walks, generous plazas, and alfresco dining - locally caught and marketed fish enjoy pride of place together with excellent Iberian hams and reasonably priced good quality wines. Its citizens are proud of their culture and traditions, as exemplified in their fiestas, processions and dance and music festivals. The town and its citizens exude hospitality and while many are happy to use English, they are very pleased if their guests try out their Spanish. The fast food chain, litter, loud thumping music and wall-to-wall soap coverage culture has been successfully resisted. This is very much a traditional Spanish town, in which one cannot fail to be impressed by the scores of multi generational family outings of toddlers, teenagers, adults and grandparents happily relaxing together over long family meals into the wee small hours. In August,usually 15/16 ,there is an open air art festival which is well worth a visit.

Just across the River Guadiana lies the Portuguese town of Vila Real de Santo Antonio. It also has a vibrant marina, and pleasing riverside restaurants. Walking from the marina into the town one can find great bargains in the port and wine shops, and, in the many linen outlets. Heading due west on the motorway will - in little more than 90 minutes - bring you to the most westerly point in continental Europe - the windswept fastness of Cabo de Sao Vicente lighthouse. The 90 minute trip east from Ayamonte brings you to historic city of Seville, the capital of Andalucia, with its old quarter housing its magnificent cathedral, with its famous Moorish Giralda Tower, and the nearby Alcázar palace. Nearer to Ayamonte and Isla Canela is the regional 'shopping' hub of Huelva.

NB - Pool opens for the first two weekends in June, then full time from the 15th June until the 15th September, then for the last two weekends in September.
