About the property

Ideal for year round golf and beach holidays in a traditional Spanish area.

5 bedroom luxury VILLA sleeping 10 furnished and equipped to the highest of standards. Our rental registration Number is VTF/HU/00026

The property overlooks the Nuevo Portil golf course hole 9 and 10 with a private pool and garden. Main building with three bedrooms and two bathrooms plus annex over the Mediterranean courtyard with two bedrooms and bathroom (ideal for older children or grandparents)

Only 15 minutes walk from miles of unspoilt coastline. This Spanish resort is ideal for year round golf and beach holidays.

The Sunday Telegraph on the 24th February 2008 stated ' Huelva has some of the best beaches in Europe' and we agree.

Will rent out main house only that sleeps upto 6 outside peak holiday season, please enquire for rates.

Local area: Within 10 minutes walk of Villa Limonero is a selection of local shops a small supermarket/ bars/restaurants and miles of fantastic unspoilt BEACH. There are larger supermarkets in Punta Umbria and Cartaya(about 15 minutes by car), you will be sent our full local information after booking or please email and I will gladly forward to you by return.

Beach and activities: Nuevo Portil beach is very suitable for young children, as the Fleche del Rompido, protects the beach from the high winds and rough currents of the Atlantic ocean. The beach stretches for 14Km and is backed by juniper woods and sand dunes.

The vast woodland is very popular for activity tourism like rambling, cycling and horse riding. Bike hire and Horse riding are is available locally per hour, half day or all day.

On the road into Cartaya you will also find the Kartodromo de Cartaya (Carting track) open year round and the very popular Aquopolis (water park) which opens normally the middle of June until first week in September.

Places of interest : HUELVA : The most visited attraction in Huelva is Muelle de las Carabelas, a wharf where you can see replicas of the Pinta, Nina and Santa Maria and from which Columbus sailed to discover the Americas. A visit to the Monastery at La Rabida is very interesting this is where Columbus planned his journey.

DONANA: One of Spain’s loveliest national parks and one of the largest dune areas in Europe, it is a World Heritage Site.

SEVILLE: The capital of Andalucia and the seat of the Andalucian Parliament. The truly wonderful city, the Plaza de Toros, the Cathedral and the Giralda tower with amazing views of the city from the top, Royal palace, the Santa Cruz quarter with it’s narrow streets and small squares full of flowers and charm. are all worth a visit. SIERRA DE ARACENA: Villages of white houses set amidst woods of holm and cork oak- above all the best cured ham in Spain known as Jabugo.

EL ROCIO: Famous for the annual Rocio Pilgrimage is a strange outpost of the wild west

We are a British family from Yorkshire with 2 boys, the photo above is of my boys at Isla Magica in Sevilla.

JILL BARRETT purchased this villa in 2008

Why JILL BARRETT chose Cartaya

We purchased 2 townhouses on the Nuevo Portil Golf course in 2003 and soon realised that we wanted a forever home in the area, so chose the plot and build style to suit our family.

We hope one day to make it our home but currently we can only visit in school holidays!

What makes this villa unique

Nuevo Portil is a very Spanish and family friendly resort with the benefit of a sandy beach that stretches for miles within 10 minutes walk and a 18 hole golf course.

All that's needed for a golf and beach holiday!

Absolutely fabulous

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a 10 day stay and cannot give enough praise for the Villa owner Jill the local agent Pam and our overall stay. Such a stunning villa in a perfect setting very well equipped and maintained the owner provided excellent local information on facilities and activities with great travel direction. The villa its self was very comfortable with everything you need a real home from home we will be returning again and again. Karen (Ashford Middlesex)

An enjoyable and relaxing family holiday!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Villa for 2 weeks and enjoyed every minute of the holiday. There were 10 of us but never felt as though we were under each other's feet.

The annexe was perfect as it meant one family could use that while the rest of us were in the main house. 3 bathrooms and the extra toilet also meant no long waits for a shower.

The Villa is very well placed and easy to get to. 10 to 15 minute walk to shops/restaurants and just a little further to the stunning beaches. We were not going to hire a car but did so in the end and glad that we did. Allowed us to travel to large supermarkets for the food. As the area is not a tourist resort this made shopping costs so much cheaper than normal.

We played golf a few times and enjoyed the course. Great to stop at your back garden on the 9th to re-srock on refreshments. Between 11am and 5pm you hardly see any golfers go past.

Pool was fantastic. Really hot when we went and provided a welcome escape from the heat. Gets the sun most of the day but nice at about 6pm when the shade starts creeping over.

Only thing that was frustrating was the power cuts but, if you do what the rules tell you and turn off air-con units when not in rooms then this minmises these instances.

Overall, a fantastic holiday and would definitely make a repeat trip.

Lovely villa in a peaceful spot

  • 5 of 5

The house was really lovely, perfect for our needs and very well-equipped. We particularly loved the enclosed courtyard and ate all our meals at the house, there. It was over 40 degrees the first few days so we were very grateful for the air conditioning at night and the generous umbrellas and awnings.

The beach is just lovely. It goes on for miles and it is so nice that it is not built up behind it.

Lovely villa.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a lovely holiday in this well appointed villa in early September. The accommodation is spacious and the annexe a good addition for family members who want a little space from the larger party. The pool and gardens were a lovely place for our two very small children, and the lockable courtyard area meant that they could go outside without adult supervision.

The owner was very pleasant and accommodating and the manager very patient when we arrived rather later than we expected. The instructions for the drive from Saville airport were a little confusing and might need to be reviewed, although it was dark and less easy for us to find our way.

The villa was clean, although a little more attention to drawers and cupboards would be appreciated, and it's closeness to shops and beach made it a very suitable place to stay with children. We definitely hope to be back in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, look forward to welcoming you back in the future. With regards to cleaning of the drawers and cupboards, the villa has a spring clean every April before the start of the summer season, and we expect the guests to leave as they found, unfortunately it looks like this has not happened this summer and the time restraints between change overs does not allow the cleaners to do this. Please accept my apologies.

Good family residence

  • 4 of 5

The property offers a large accommodation with a courtyard and annex , ideal for a large family or group ! The pool and grounds are spacious and private with an outlook onto a golf course which , whilst we were there , was not at all busy . The facilities are good and the location well placed to access the local restaurants and bars .

We enjoyed our stay and felt it worth another visit in future .
