About the Property

This very special cottage 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.

This accommodation for up to five people is wonderfully quirky, decorated with real flare with original pieces and marine antiques. There is a second bedroom, which can sleep three people and a spacious covered terrace for dining and wiling the afternoon away with a good book.  

The cottage can be accessed via the delightful Spanish cobbled courtyard that houses the horse trap, two of the owner’s friendly mares and a magical wooden tree house. Alternatively it can be reached through the new terrace with private parking literally outside.  There is everything one could possibly need for your Mediterranean holiday in style… 

The kitchen is well equipped and there is a farmhouse style solid wooden table, sitting room with plenty of space, a stylish red pot belly stove for the winter months. The bathroom is on the ground floor and one has to access the twin bedroom either from outside or passing through the bathroom. The twin room is painted in a bold turquoise and decorated with vintage accessories, but the highlight is without a doubt the windows which quite often might have two horses looking through. For animal loving children this property is truly a heavenly choice. The master bedroom is up a flight of stairs. 

The surfer’s cottage has shared use of the swimming pool, astro turf tennis court, stunning mature gardens and various terraces scattered throughout the property. The property can also be rented as a whole with accommodation for up to 17 guests please see Farmhouse Tarifa Sleeps 17 and is a fabulous option for an event or special occasion.

End Cleaning

End cleaning is included in the cost.  However, in all cases you are responsible for keeping the property and all its contents in the same state of cleanliness, repair and condition as at the commencement of the holiday. The owner reserves the right to make deductions from the security deposit for any extra cleaning, over the number of hours committed to departure cleaning.

Car Rental
I would recommend a car that is slightly higher off the ground, such as a Citroen Berlingo, Peugeot Partner something of this kind or even just the simple Fiat Panda. Family estate cars can sometimes be very low to the ground and I would definitely never rent a sports car they do not suit the Tarifa roads.

Booking Conditions
50% non-refundable deposit to be paid by bank transfer, the remaining 50% to be paid by bank transfer 8 weeks prior to arrival

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.”

“The epitome of casual chic – orange groves, peace and quiet and eagles soaring”  Harpers and Queen Magazine

“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!”
