Description (written by the owner)

On a hill near La Muela, the spacious, clean cottage is in the centre of 1.6 hectares of the finca. You will have peace and quiet, spectacular views to the Atlantic and setting sun.

Imagine sitting in your own private pool, with a refreshing drink, with the aroma of freshly picked vegetables on your barbecue as you watch the sun setting over the Atlantic Ocean before a peaceful, quiet nights sleep. That's what you get a Finca Higueron.

We are situated on the Costa de la Luz, Spain's southern Atlantic coast, halfway between Tarifa and Cadiz. The accommodation consists of two detached, private one bedroom cottages, El Olivo has a double bed and El Almendro has twin beds.

Following improvements. There is an excellent Internet service available in all rooms and the patio and pools of the cottages. Also, the Internet is available when sitting on the pagoda, at the highest point, looking over the Atlantic.

Just, fifteen minutes from the white Moorish village of Vejer de la frontera and ten minutes from the beautiful beach at Conil.

The beaches in the area are some of the best in Europe. There are a few coves and protected beaches, but many are wide expanses of golden sand that never get full. Even in the middle of August. The nearest beach town of Conil is very Spanish and full of fun all day and night during the summer and boasts 3km of broad sandy beach, very good inexpensive bars and restaurants. Whilst the old hilltop town of Vejer de la fontera has beautiful buildings and narrow streets and chique shops and bars to explore.

If you have too much sun, take a day out and visit Cadiz by boat (ask us), Jerez or the pueblo blancos ofMedina Sidonia and Arcos de la frontera.

A great day out. Visit the Roman ruins at Bolonia, followed by whale watching at Tarifa. Then take a little tapas lunch at Tarifa before exploring the town and visiting the castle of Guzman the good. On the way back, just before Vejer, visit the art display at NMAC and enjoy an evening stroll in the pine woods, at the same time. Finally spoil yourself in one of the assorted ventas and restaurants just a short distance from your holiday base.

Positioned on top of a hill, 190 meters above sea level, the finca has spectacular all round panoramic views, which include Trafalgar light house and the Atlantic ocean, Africa, Cadiz, and the surrounding area. Only being three kilometres from the centre of the nearest village, La Muela, the two cottages are an idyllic venue for either a wonderful beach holiday, a quiet relaxing holiday, or both.

El Olivo is a purpose built cottage that has been designed to provide both space and comfort for two people, with the possibility of a single bed in the lounge for a third person.

The private patio, with a shaded area, looks to the west; there is a 2m X 2m mini pool with integral seating to offer complete relaxation while watching the setting sun.

The bedroom and lounge windows face south-west and provide our guests with spectacular views to the Atlantic Ocean.

The cottage and patio areas are very private and considerable effort has been made to ensure that adequate furnishings, fittings and utensils have been added to satisfy all requirements.

Once you arrive, you will be welcomed by the owners and we will accompany you to your clean and tidy cottage that is surrounded by well-maintained gardens. During your stay, we are available to provide help, assistance and valuable information, if required.

As well as free fresh in season organic vegetables and fruit we have free range chicken that provide us and our guests with lovely brown eggs

Cyclists - There are many cross-country routes both near, far, easy and challenging, with routes planned and maps or way-points available. Also, on route recommend refreshment stops. We can arrange for hire of both mountain bikes and road bikes at a discounted rate, our supplier has in excess of 50 bikes available, to suit all. We provide safety helmets.

Birdwatchers - If you are visiting the area for the first time, take advantage of the knowledge we have acquired from previous visitors, over the last 12 years. We know many of the well publicised areas to visit, but we also know a few gems that are not in the books The finca is on the flight path of many birds that migrate from southern Spain to Africa. Watching the Storks and Bee Eaters flying over is wonderful, but the Eagles, Hawks and Vultures that glide, hover and swoop overhead on a regular basis are nothing less than spectacular. In the unspoilt common land adjacent to the finca, there is a large variety of bird-life all year round.

Without getting in your car, the surrounding countryside is ideal for walking, cycling and horse riding. Also, for golfers there are six demanding courses within half an hours drive.

Thanks Val and Tad!!!

We spent a week at the El Oliva cottage in September 2016. It is the smaller of the two, but large enough for a couple and indeed very private. You have a spectular view over the beaches between Trafalgar and Conil, and you can even see the hills Morocco on a clear day. Val and Tad were great hosts, who did everything to get the most out of your stay. The fridge was filled when we arrived and Tad gave us some excellent tips for restaurants (don't miss La Patria!) and places to visit. We managed to see Tarifa, the Roman ruins of Bolonia (Baelo Claudia), Cadiz (take the ferry from El Puerto de Santa Maria) and the hill top village of Vejer de la Frontera, all well within an hour from the cottage. We also planned to visit Jerez de la Frontera, but preferred the beaches which were at only 15 minutes from the cottage. To go to Seville or Gibraltar will take you about 1.5 hours. Particularly Seville is worth the journey (Plaza d'Espagne, the Cathedral and the Real Alcazar), but it will be a long day. All in all, a great week at the Costa de la Luz. If you have already seen Granada and Cordova, then just forget about the Costa del Sol. This coast is much more relaxing, and away from the mass tourism and the high rise buildings of Torremolinos and Marbella. Thanks again Val and Tad...!!

Friendly place

We had a nice stay at the property and were impressed by the couple's friendly attitude. The fridge had been stocked before our arrival so that we didn't have to go shopping immediately!

A lovely cottage on a beautiful site!

In spite of the bad weather, we had a warm welcome. The owners are very helpfull and friendly people, fresh bread, water, wine and more were waiting for us in the kitchen. A good bed and a very large and nice shower make the cottage comfortabele. The internet was very well. The vieuw from the garden is great and the nearby town Conil is a nice white town at the sea.
Owner comment
Thank you for visiting us at Finca Higueron, Bettie and Tom. It was a shame that the weather was so poor during your stay, it is very unusual for rain in May, but as you found out, there is a great deal to do and see even when the weather is not perfect. You were our first guests with our new internet service and we are delighted that the signal in the cottage was excellent. As you know we are only happy when our guests are happy, so we are smiling. Once again, thank you for your visit. Val and Tad Jones

Great holiday

Wonderful location with spectacular views. Close to so many interesting white towns, beautiful scenery and stunning beaches. Lots of helpful advice from Tad and Val. Will definitely be returning - still so much to see and do.
