Lovely villa:stunning location!

Firstly I would say that the instructions for finding the villa were excellent. Thank you, as the last couple of kilometres can be very stressful at the end of a long tiring journey. We had not appreciated how elevated the villa was so when we arrived we were blown away by the views from the pool terrace and the upstairs bedrooms. All the rooms/ beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms clean. Air conditioning in the bedrooms would have been better as the ceiling fans only offered limited relief from seasonal temperatures. That being said, we all slept well enough. The kitchen was well-equipped although as a group of 10 we would have struggled for fridge space without the second fridge out the back. We hardly ate indoors as being outside under the trees was really special for lunch and dinner, including a great BBQ. After discovering some table tennis balls in the undergrowth that became a massive hit, particularly with the younger members of our group. By far the best feature for me was the pool terrace and garden area - beautifully kept, by the way. With enough loungers for everyone, including the big seats by the veranda this is where we spent most of our time...and of course there were those views! The layout of the villa was such that we could not be overlooked, not could we overlook someone else - great planning. The entrance is quite tricky to get in and out of so there was quite a bit of manoeuvering of cars (3 in our group) but sufficient parking for all. All the staff were helpful and friendly and Curro's suggestion for horseriding was great. We also went whale watching at Tarifa which was a good afternoon out. In terms of shops etc. the Mercado in Barbate was best for an initial big shop, therefater we used the local supermarkets or the market in Zahara. All in all this was a lovely place to stay for our group (ages from 19-67).

Amazing getaway!

We stayed in Las Rocas for 14 nights and had an amazing time! It was 12 of us staying at the property including 4 small children and it was a perfect mix of common areas to sit as family and quiet areas to have some lone time. The property is close to lots of amenities and beaches. The owner Gale was very prompt in communication before, during and after our stay and has been very helpful. The local staff of the villa were very friendly and had some great local information to share. Overall we would highly recommend this property!

Outstanding experience! Can't wait to go back

It was a pleasure dealing with Gale throughout the reservation process. She was always accommodating and very patient. The house truly met our expectations and our experience was extraordinary to say the least. I have already reserved the house for next year and can't wait to go back.
Owner comment

Wonderful holiday in February!

We had the most wonderful time at Gale's Las Rocas. We were two families with 6 kids between 2.5 and 8. Gale gave us all kind of tips about the area, and we really enjoyed our walk with Nature explorer. We walked from Bolonia to Las rocas with the older children, quite an experience. We also ate in top notch restaurants in the area, which were recommended to us by Gale and also other locals. El Ancla in Tarifa is just superb, and I would highly recommend it. You can eat outside even if windy. Las Rocas is perfect. We swam in the pool everyday, had barbaque outside, and looked at the stars in the hammock (a winner with the kids, we need one more of those!). Kids have plenty of space to run around relatively safely. I know this area relatively well as I holiday around Zahara for two years now. I have always gone in the summer. I was not sure what to expect this time of year. I was pleasantly surprised. Locals are much more relaxed and you get a real feel of the place. Service is really good as all the infrastructure is there but not so many turists. Some places are closed, but there are enough good ones opened. You risk it with the weather, but we were really lucky and got sunshine most days. Only two days were cloudy but that was perfect as we went to Veger and.. the beach. In fact, I really enjoy this time of year, as in summer it is too hot to for example explore the area walking.
Owner comment
Such delightful guests. Thank you for staying with us and really enjoying the whole area. You asked the best questions and it looks like you had a great time as a result. We all look forward to seeing you again.

Get away from it all

The Villa lived up to and in fact exceeded expectations in always. The owner,Gale, was totally responsive and very pleasant in all our e-mail communications. Her staff,Curro and Victoria, were always helpful and extremely pleasant. The Villa itself offers numerous separate areas for people to occupy. This is particularly conducive to a large group as it allows for multiple simultaneous interactions between different combinations of folks in a very comfortable way. This holds true both inside and outside the house itself. It is only a very short drive to the small local village of Zahara de los Atunes and only a slightly longer drive to Barbate where there are large supermarkets. There are many options for activities but also for what our family was really seeking which was relaxed, un-pressured time together. All appliances and equipment worked very well and made for a very comfortable experience. The Price to Value ratio is extremely appropriate. There is nothing negative to say about this property or its owner but rather only glowing praise. Our group consisted of 11 adults and 3 small children. There are not that many places that could so comfortably accommodate such a group in such beautiful surroundings. Lastly, I would say that the website does not fully reveal the true beauty and comfort of the Villa and it's grounds. In reality it is even better.
Owner comment
It takes two! Thank you for being the most respectful and enjoyable family to welcome. Thank you for your wonderful review and it is a joy to know that the Villa could accomodate all the family coming together so comfortably.

Ohioans on Winter Escape to Southern Spain!

We did not know what to expect of this area in the winter months. Weather was as predicted - 50's-60's during the days; 40's at night. Villa itself is spectacular, with lots of rooms and amazing views. In nearby Zahara [small town] and Barbate [next larger town] we were able to find groceries and a fresh food market. The kitchen is complete, and we were able to cook for ourselves handily. Gail and her caretakers could not have been more accommodating. Gail is incredibly responsive - often responding to emails within hours. We built fires in the wood-burning fireplace most evenings, and watched movies from Gail's plentiful supply of English-speaking titles. Day trips to Cadiz, Ronda, Gibraltar and Morocco were easy to accomplish. The beaches are gorgeous, but driving to them was required [one could walk but not easily]. One caveat if you plan to rent here - get there during the day. We found it very difficult to find at night - and our GPS was of no value as the roads to the villa are not mapped [and there is no physical address for the villa]. However, once we arrived and set our coordinates, all was good! I imagine that summer visits here would be markedly different!
