What we like about this property

This villa for rent in Spain sits just above the shores of the Gibraltar Straits where you can hear the waves breaking on the nearby beach. Tucked away among lush gardens, it’s a welcoming and very private retreat that offers the best of coastal Andalusia. We like the Mediterranean inspired design and the magnificent views of Tangier and the African coastline from the rooftop terrace.

Description

Located in the tiny hamlet of Punta Paloma within the Estrecho Natural Park, this traditional southern Andalusian home is within a short four minute walk to some of Europe’s best white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters. With views of the Straits of Gibraltar and North Africa in the distance, the house is just a twelve minute drive from Tarifa. A homey and secluded retreat, it’s tucked away among lovely, mature Mediterranean gardens in a privileged location surrounded by pine forests. 

Originally used as a family holiday home, the property has been lovingly and tastefully restored and decorated by the owners with an airy, laid back style that’s welcoming and simple with all of the comforts of home. The main house includes a large, open-plan living, kitchen and dining area which makes the most of the incredible views as well as two double bedrooms. The adjacent annex includes an en suite twin bedroom with kitchenette, and both houses feature wood burning stoves for cozy nights. With multiple patios, terraces and verandahs, the property has plenty of outdoor living spaces for lounging on daybeds and dining al fresco, encouraging complete relaxation day and night. The rooftop terrace is also outfitted with comfy loungers to enjoy the magnificent views and is the perfect spot for catching the sun set over the strait.

This villa for rent in Spain is a lovely retreat in an amazing setting far from the crowds.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

TV and DVD player, stereo system with CD player and iPhone docking audio system. All kitchen and bath essentials. Built in BBQ. Private off road parking for two cars.

    We just wanted to say thanks for making our visit to Tarifa a truly unforgettable one. Your beautifully furnished house really had everything we could have wanted in a holiday home: lots of room (inside and out), comfort, privacy, a lovely garden and those stunning views. Add to this the very short walk to that incredible beach and its proximity to Tarifa and it’s hard to imagine how we could have made a better choice for our family getaway. Highly recommend you! Best wishes, Simon, Michele and family.

    I stayed at this lovely house with my family and we had the most relaxing holiday ever. The immediate area is some of Spain’s loveliest and lushest countryside. It is so peaceful and beautiful. Wherever you look there is nothing to spoil the views. To the rear is pine forest with little walking tracks into the hills; to the front there is a spectacular sea view and at night, as you dine on the terrace, there is the magical sight of the lights of Tangiers twinkling across the ocean. The house itself is very stylish, chic and convenient with a real sense of country living and at the same time every modern appliance and convenience. If you feel a slight drop in temperature in the evening, the word burning stove is a delight. we hope to return and plan to make this a regular destination.

    We have had two very memorable holidays in this tastefully renovated villa. It is in a very special national park setting. It nestles under a gleaming crest of limestone, on a richly wooded incline. A beautiful and secluded beach is a short stroll down a pine scented private track. Across the sea to the south rise the mountains of Morocco, very clearly visible. The villa is colourful, spacious and well equipped. It has views of the sea and the distant hills, from both the airy lounge, and the large, shaded, patio which runs along the whole south frontage. Access to the villa is by a private road, and the location is quiet and peaceful. Thoroughly recommendable!

    “I stayed at this beautiful house with my wife and teenage son. It was truly memorable. Africa View Villa has been lovingly restored by its friendly owners, Peter and Marie Carmen, who speak English and Spanish. It is very comfortable and well-appointed. The views across the sea to Africa are amazing, especially sitting with a drink on the roof terrace at night when you can see the lights of Tangiers. The location is just a few minutes drive from Tarifa itself, in an unspoilt nature reserve. There is a quiet beach a few minutes walk away and a lovely family-run restaurant 2 minutes walk up the lane. For those who want windsurfing and other activities there are top-quality facilities nearby – my teenage son certainly had a fantastic time here! Overall, couldn’t recommend this unique property enough.”

    I have travelled very extensively throughout my life and this is truly one of the most amazing places I have ever stayed in. The home itself is beautiful and immaculately presented. It is warm, welcoming, secluded and exudes the great love and passion that its makers have created it with. With walking distance to a spectacular part of the coastline of Southern Spain and a myriad of beautiful beaches, the proximity of the incredible town of Tarifa and surrounding villages, the view of Africa across the water which becomes magical at night when the house and street lights flicker endlessly in the distance, I could go there again and again.
