About the Property
Large old restored farmhouse, over 150 years old, in the hamlet of Betis (this is between Bolonia and Tarifa, above Punta Paloma), Tarifa. A wonderful location with easy access to both Tarifa and Bolonia beaches, 5 mins away, and with Tarifa town at just 10 minutes drive.
The position up in Sierra de San Bartolomé offers spectacular views over the bay below and the straits of Africa, in a very private, rural and privileged location. Betis is popular for mountain climbing and walking, and there is a lovely restaurant which is a local secret in Betis called El Tesoro – originally a gastronomic club and now open to the public – a romantic and special place to eat with delicious food. From the gardens you will be able to enjoy all the farm animals, a wonderful opportunity for children as the goats, cows and donkeys roam freely by the house in the green pastures and also for bird watching as there are always birds of prey and vultures circling overhead.
Casa Betis is more than a holiday house, and makes a very comfortable and elegant country home for a summer or winter holiday. In the renovation all the stunning original features have been restored, including the Tarifa stone floors, wooden beams, metre thick walls (heaven in the heat of the summer as they keep the house nice and cool) and reed roofs. There are two sitting rooms; a winter one – with wooden floors, fireplace, stereo, Satellite TV/DVD and and a summer one – with terracotta tiled floors, air conditioning and a piano.
The house sleeps eight people in four bedrooms; two doubles (with air conditioning) and two twins with three bathrooms.
There is a well equipped kitchen with eating area, dining room and conservatory – so plenty of space for everyone. There is the opportunity of renting this house with the white house in Betis which sleeps 4, so ideal for any larger groups or families.
Decorated in classic Italian furnishings with stunning doors from Mali, this would be a very special place to spend your holiday in Tarifa.

We stayed in this beautifully restored mansion for 2 weeks. We were 3 families of 2, with 3 children. Our stay was very pleasant. The villa is located in the very small rural village of Betis, where cows and horses walk freely around. The house is very tastefully restored with a furnished kitchen. (even if we did not cook our own meals because in Betis, Bolonia and Tarifa there is a lot of very economic small restaurants). In the house there is also a piano! The gardens and swiming pool are well kept. From the garden, where there is an outside tennis table, we did birdwatching (many vultures) and had a stunning views of the surrounding “mountains” similar to Dolomities (we had some guided climbing too). Villa is close enough to the beaches (3 mins by car) but far away enough to escape the hassle of Tarifa’s nightlife. A well thought out holiday house. You definitely need a car as the house is in a hilly position and you need to drive everywhere.
We will definitely be booking a return holiday.
