About the Property

“The epitome of casual chic …Orange groves, peace and quiet and eagles soaring”  Harpers & Queen Magazine

This very special Spanish Farmhouse offers a relaxing, enjoyable and stress-free environment at just ten minutes’ drive from Tarifa’s famous beaches. The electric gates ensure absolute privacy during your stay. An avenue of forty palms leads to the main entrance, which opens into a beautiful shaded courtyard with tropical planting and swaying palms. A long wisteria covered terrace opens onto the lawned swimming pool area, set in an old orange orchard which is fenced and gated. This pool is an idyllic temperature during the summer months. Wooden sun beds are in the pool area and this long shaded terrace provides the ideal spot for lunch.

There is accommodation for fourteen people, and some extras if necessary, in four different sections – all with their own theme and immensely stylish. The honeymoon suite with a four poster king size double bed, high ceilings and plenty of natural light through the picture windows with views over the oleander-filled walled courtyard. The surfer’s cottage which is wonderfully quirky; decorated with real flair using original pieces and marine antiques and lastly the two courtyard cottages that are elegant, rustic and colonial in feel. 

The Finca is 80.000m2 and has so many fabulous corners and terraces, some with shade and some without. There are so many divine spots one can enjoy meals – the wisteria terrace by the pool, the impressive shaded terraces by the courtyard cottage and surfers cottage and lastly the BBQ terrace – perhaps it is just best to rotate?!

The swimming pool is located off this main courtyard in the old orange grove and secured with a gate, giving peace of mind to families that are travelling with young children. In the stable courtyard there is a delightful treehouse with a homemade “snakes and ladders” set and behind this third courtyard is the astro turf tennis court (tennis racquets and balls are usually left on the court, but if you are keen we recommend you bring your own). 

Other notable features are the orange grove with table tennis table, a sand pit, stunning mature gardens and more wild, untamed fields that lead to idyllic streams. Plenty of animals; horses to groom; glorious walks close to the house that have direct access to Tarifa’s Natural Parks, this is a truly a very special property.

Guest Reviews

“I have stayed at this lovely place several times over the past 10 or so years. It’s a perfect destination for beach and relaxation, but close to many fun day trips as well. Over the years the beach has gotten very crowded with wind surfers but there are beaches not far from the villa that are mostly swimmers and sunbathers. The accommodation itself is just perfect. The owners are lovely, the cook is amazing and the rooms are all beautiful. There is a lovely pool, horses, tennis and the town of Tarifa is a 10 minute drive and full of fun bars and restaurants, but you may never want to leave”.

“Our stay here was if we were in a tropical dream. We love the Mediterranean feeling and the history in the house. Every corner is a story in itself and there are a lot of corners 🙂 We were overwhelmed by the vegetation, the beautiful flowers, the cute table decorations, the pool and so many other things.”

“A charming house with the world’s nicest hosts. We feel like we are part of the family. There is local food prepared at home if you eat at the cortijo, otherwise there are good places to eat in Tarifa or on the beach. We went during the summer and were able to relax, book yoga classes, play tennis and get massages, all in the same place – the pool was perfect! The pool is only a five minute drive away. It’s the perfect place for family or friend outings, and it’s also perfect for getting inspired by nature and writing a great book! I hope you enjoy it.”

“We had the pleasure of having this farmhouse as our wedding venue in September 2018. Friends of ours were married here 10 years ago and we said at the time that when we would get married, it would be here. The place is simply breathtaking, a truly romantic and idyllic setting from all points of view and from the moment you arrive at the gates you know you are in for something special, and it does not disappoint. It is perfect for self catering holidays as well as boutique weddings and although the farmhouse has organised some very large weddings, it was perfect for our smaller, more intimate occasion. Our guests were impressed by its character and charm and we have memories to last a lifetime. We consider the cortijo to be our home. . . . . .and very selfishly we want to keep it that way. We know that writing such a good review will encourage more people to find this little gem. But the owners deserve it. . . . …and so do you!”

“We had a wonderful time at this villa, which was very well decorated and impeccably clean. Our children loved the freedom of the place – there are horses to visit in the stables, a treehouse to play in, and a huge garden. It made our vacation very relaxing as they are entertained very happily! We came in November, which was really lovely in Tarifa – very quiet, very nice weather, and when we went out for a walk on the beach we had the whole place to ourselves! The owners were fantastic hosts. I hope to come back soon!”
