Conil de la Frontera: Conil is one of the most popular seaside resorts on the Coast of Light. On it's 7 mile coast, different types of beaches can be found : open and extensive, small coves surrounded by cliffs. Some of the characteristics of rural southern Spain can be perceived through rich agricultural small holdings. The architecture is alive reflecting fishing, trade, and the religious side of the town, thanks to it's preservation the town has been declared a historical artistic monument. Conil is rich in traditions, it produces craft work, especially pottery. The gastronomy is abundant from the fertile fishing and farming grounds.

Vejer de la Frontera: This is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful towns, not only in Andalusia, but in Spain. It has been declared an historical artistic monument, and was awarded the'Premio Nacional de Embellecimiento'. Thanks to it's privileged location, on a hill 190 meters above sea level, it offers an amazing view of the surrounding countryside. 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.

Cape Trafalgar and Zahora: From the famous lighthouse of Cape Trafalgar direction north-east you arrive at the beautiful white sand beach of Zahora. Because of the lagoons formed at low tide, makes this a popular beach for families with small children. Lots of fun can be had snorkeling in the crystalline waters.This area is frequented mainly by nature lovers who come to enjoy the beauty and tranquility it has to offer.

Cortijo Del Huerto, El Palmar

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying as guests of Juan Antonio Cruzado and we have already booked a third. You could therefore say enough said!

It suits us perfectly as we enjoy self catering and shopping at the local butcher and fish shop and going to the splendid market in Barbate for vegetables, where you can also sneak in some indulgent churros with your morning coffee.

The cortijo is charming and very comfortable for 2 (+2). The location is perfect for walking to the low rise coastal resort of El Palmar, with it's fabulous beach stretching from Cape Trafalgar to Conil de la Frontera, every inch of which we have walked on one trip or another.

The property is well maintained and you will never run out of eggs, which are a splendid feature of Juan Antonio's relaxed but perfectly attentive customer service.

We have recommended the cortijo to people and indeed some friends of ours, who have their own property in Spain, were much taken with it when they came to stay one night, including an especially magical sunset at a nearby beach bar.

We are especially fond of Gurugu Chiringuito on the beach, Restaurante El Alferez - the closest restaurant to the cortijo and Venta El Toro at Santa Lucia, just beneath Vejer de la Frontera.

Ausserordentlich schön

  • 4 of 5

Das Haus und die Lage sind ausserordentlich schön. Die Einrichtung des Hauses liebe- und geschmackvoll. Juan-Antonio ist sehr hilfsbereit und seine diskreten, unaufdringliche Art ist sehr angenehm. Er ist sofort da, wenn man ihn braucht. Der Garten ist gross und gepflegt, der Swimmingpool nicht gross, aber gerade richtig. Die Tiere im und ums Haus waren für uns eine schöne Nebenerscheinung, wir haben uns über das morgendliche Hallo der Gänse und Hähne gefreut. Und die Hauskatze Juana ist uns sehr ans Herz gewachsen. Wir hatten sehr schöne Tage hier. Einzig die beiden Matratzen in den Einzelbetten unter dem Dach sind nicht für Erwachsene absolut nicht geeignet, erst recht nicht, wenn man einen etwas heiklen Rücken hat.

Una casa con encanto muy especial

  • 5 of 5

La propiedad esta cuidada con cariño y mucho detalle, el jardin y la piscina impecables. La casa cuenta con todas las comodidades y si surge alguna necesidad, el propietario, una persona muy amable y cercana, siempre esta atento y disponible para ayudar. A cinco minutos andando de la playa. Nuestra estancia ha sido inmejorable y si tenemos oportunidad, sin duda volveremos.

Lovely place

  • 4 of 5

The garden and pool are exceptionally nice. An enclosed space, well cared for and surrounded by trees full of bird song. The house is full of character with artistic touches all around. We were four adults, which in retrospect was not ideal as one of the bedrooms is open plan with the communal area and gave little privacy, and also has no storage space for clothes. Would be better for two adults with children.

Great rural hide out

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with 2 adults and 2 young children in April for a week. El Palmar is not very lively during that period, but exactly to our liking. The beach is 5 minutes by feet and is a very long strip stretching for kilometers to both sides. Some surfboard rentals are already open (main activity here on nice shorebreak) and some restaurants, as well. Not the best quality for money, though. Better cook at home. There is a small supermarket in El Palmar (veggies not best quality) and a large one in Conil. All kitchen gear is present (except an oven and teapot). Eating outside is a pleasure in the spacious garden. There is even a BBQ to grill the sardines from the local fishery. The swimming pool is 4 x 5 m and non heated: a refreshing dive in April, but probably welcome in hot summer months. It is located in the back of the terrain of the very sympathetic Señor Cruzado, with parking space for your car. Dogs, cats and chicken add to the rural flavor, much to the liking of our kids. The attic with a low roof is a good place for 2 kids with its 2 separate beds, but is not a separate room. So if you want to test the stereo in the evening (CD with USB access available), the kids will be witness. We did not watch television, but usually for us vacation is a good time for watching a DVD (however, not available). So we read a lot instead or just enjoyed the garden outside with some local wines. In short, one of the best places we ever stayed in because of privacy, tranquility, easy access to the beach and facilities.

Car: recommended

Situated to the south of Conil, and close to the famous Cape Trafalgar lighthouse, making an 7 km stretch of white sand beach with crystalline waters, it is ideal for families, also considered one of the best beaches for surfers in Andalusia. Every year in March the national championships for surf are celebrated here. Along the beach front a great variety of bars and restaurants can be found, with superb local gastronomy. Amongst the rural residencial area small supermarkets and shops can easily be found.

Other Activities: Kitesurf,3 golf courses at less then 30 minutes by car

Golf: 3 golf clubs are very close to our property, at about 10-15 km far from our houses. Montenmedio/Vejer, in Chiclana and in Nuevo Sancti Petri
