I bought this property in 2003 having fallen in love with the area. I carried out the reburbishment myself and lived there very happily until life took me back to the UK.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed in the apartment for one week in July, and we couldn't have had a better holiday. It is located in the quiet village of Facinas, approx 15kms from Tarifa. The apartment is modern and well equipped - a perfect place to chill out (we loved the hammock chair!). Organising our holiday was made easy with swift and clear communication with the owner, and the on site manager could not have been more helpful or friendly, The beach and restaurant recommendations in the information pack were very good, although we would also add 'Surla' in Tarifa for fantastic breakfast/brunch and excellent, welcoming service. All round a brilliant apartment in a great location for a relaxing holiday.

Simple furnishings with everything you could need. Fantastic views from small terrace.

  • 5 of 5

Excellent communications with owner. No hitches, helpful with local info. Car essential. Extremely beautiful location, very peaceful village. Nice food in Le Fonda restaurant in the village & an amazing Spanish meal in nearby restaurant Le Nene authentic Spanish family run establishment. Fantastic beaches within 15 mins drive & a must see white town 'Vejer a la frontera about 45 mins drive away. If you are a nature lover or in search of a 'getaway from it all' holiday then I would highly recommend Facinas and this holiday apartment.

Nearly Perfect :)

  • 4 of 5

We had a really nice time in facinas.

The apartement is equipped with almost everything you need. We took alot of inspirations of Andrews little guide, which i can highly recommend.

Only downside:

Since it is a old house you can hear people in the other apartement from time to time. But thats mainly a problem if people are noisy and hyperactive at late night (1am and later)

Thanks to Andrew for keeping everything uncomplicated

Best Regards

Wunderschönes Appartement in idyllischem und sehr freundlichen Dorf.

  • 5 of 5

Wir wurden nicht enttäuscht: Es war alles sehr einfach, der Vermieter sehr zuvorkommend und die Unterstützung vor Ort sehr verlässlich. Das Appartement beinhaltet alles, was man braucht, und das Dorf ist ein idealer Ausgangspunkt für Touren aller Art, egal ob Strand oder Bergwelten.

Perfecto piso, muy bien condicionado y equipado, decorado con gusto, a 10 minutos de la playa en coc

  • 3 of 5

No se le dan las 5 estrellas porque te cobran 50 euros por la limpieza, cuando está era bastante deficiente, telas de araña en cada esquina del piso y el hornillo lleno de mugre.

Solo le falta de equipamiento una pequeña tv y sobretodo un microondas, por lo demas esta genial.

Facinas is a wonderfully peaceful place and a perfect base from which to explore the local region. The village itself boasts some of the best restaurants in the area, at weekends attracting many visitors from the neighbouring towns. There are fantastic opportunities for walking and cycling in the hills behind Facinas, with prehistoric cave paintings, forests and waterfalls to be discovered and explored.

Whilst being a quieter alternative to the busy nightlife centre of Tarifa, Facinas is also closer to the areas' most popular beaches. Nearest is the amazing beach at Bolonia where you can wander around the impressive Roman ruins of Baelo Claudia before dining on fish straight out of the sea! A little further south is the natural paradise of Punta Paloma followed by the stunning bay of Valdevaqueros and the long kitesurf mecca of Los Lances.

The nearest main town of Tarifa has something for everyone. Wander around the labyrinthine streets of the old town and shop in the many stylish boutiques, explore the medieval castle, eat in one of the myriad tapas bars and restaurants or dance the night away. Whale watching tours into the straits of Gibraltar leave daily and Morocco is only 35 minutes away by ferry; lunch in Tangier is a fun way to spend a day. For those that fancy a late night out, taxis run all night to get you back to Facinas.

Head northwest and you soon reach the stunning hilltop Moorish town of Vejer de la Frontera which has been declared a national monument. Overlooking Las Breñas national park, the beaches of Los Caños de Meca and El Palmar, and Cape Trafalgar, it is a fantastic place to spend a day exploring the medieval old town with its tiny cobbled streets, tapas bars, shops and historic buildings including the original castle which in parts dates back to the 10th Century.

The beaches near Facinas are all unspoilt, clean and spacious even in the middle of summer. The area is famous for windsurfing and kitesurfing and it is easy to arrange lessons if necessary. Other activities that are offered locally include horse-riding, mountain biking, rock climbing and scuba diving. The nearest golf courses are at Montenmedio or Benalup, or, heading in the other direction, the many courses of the Costa del Sol start at Alcaidesa, all 45 minutes away.
