One-Off Feature

In the heart of a nature reserve, and just a four minute walk to a sandy beach, you will find this gloriously secluded property for six.  This is a place to just ‘be’ - enjoying views to the African coastline from the spectacular roof terrace, just a few minutes drive from the picturesque Andalucian town of Tarifa.

General Info

African view is a fabulous beach retreat, set in an oasis of tranquility.  It’s a totally secluded and private house, yet a four minute stroll down a sandy track gets you to some of Europe’s finest beaches.  The house is in the tiny hamlet of Paloma Baja in the very heart of a nature reserve, and surrounded by pine forests.  It is less than a 15 minute drive from the walled fortress town of Tarifa, where there are masses of activities on offer, wonderful restaurants and bars, and a range of shops.  Punta Paloma itself in a tiny hamlet, 3kms from the main road, so if a rural and peaceful idyll is what you’re after, then you’ll find it here!

The Area Surrounding The Property / Accommodation

If you can drag yourself away from your rural idyll, then you’ll find a wide range of activities and places of interest in the vicinity.  Tarifa itself is a mecca for windsurfers and kitesurfers and the crystal clear sea provides ample opportunities for snorkelling and scuba diving.  Other watersports are also on offer - deep sea fishing, whale and dolphin watching, canoeing and sailing.  Or choose from a variety of land based activities from horseriding, mountain biking, rock climbing, walking and quad biking.  For the culture vultures, there are Roman ruins and Moorish towns, and the beautiful hilltop towns of Vejer de la Frontera and Castillo de Castillar de la Frontera.  You’re also well positioned for day trips to some of Andalucia’s most vibrant major cities - Cadiz and Jerez are an hour or so away, Seville two hours.  Or if you fancy a change of continent for the day, head to Tarifa port, and jump on the 35 minute ferry to Tangier in Morocco!

Accommodation Details

Interior Details
The house can sleep up to six people.  There are two bedrooms in the main house (one double and one twin) which share a bathroom, and a separate annex with two single beds, an ensuite shower room and toilet, and a kitchenette.  The house feels spacious and airy, and has a mediterranean style.  There is a large open plan living, kitchen and dining area which makes the most of the fabulous views of the surrounding countryside and the coastline of north Africa.  The kitchen is fully equipped with all the necessary crockery and appliances including coffee maker, microwave, fridge freezer, washing machine and dishwasher.  There are woodburning stoves in both the main house and the annex to keep you cosy in the winter months if it feels chilly.  The house also has TV & DVD player, music system with CD player and iphone dock.  Extra bed or baby cot available on request. All bed linen and towels provided.

Exterior Details
The house is beautifully secluded.  Within its stone walls is a mature garden with several large terraces and pergolas for shade.  The mediterranean garden is home to palm trees, oleander, yuccas, mimosa, bougainvillea and banana plants. There is a purpose built BBQ, exterior shower and ample seating, loungers and day beds where you can while away some lazy days.  There is exterior lighting which adds charm to al fresco evenings in the garden.  The piece de resistance is the large roof terrace which has panoramic views over the Gibraltar straits to Tangier and the African coastline.  You can spend many an hour up here enjoying the views, and watching the spectacular sunsets.  Off road private parking for 2 cars.

Further Details
The beaches near the house are ideal for young children as they have lots of rockpools to explore, as well as a large natural swimming pool known as El Corralito.  It’s sheltered from the open sea by a circular rock formation which makes swimming here very safe.  Young children will also love all the local animals - horses, donkeys, cows and mountain goats everywhere!  For the foodies, Tarifa is a delight.  There are many excellent restaurants and tapas bars and you mustn’t miss a visit to Tarifa’s fish market.
