Superb Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a well equipped, very spacious apartment within a quiet complex. It is nice and airy with balconies front and back The large balcony to the back is perfect for evening sun, and the smaller at the front is great for breakfast time.

We stayed here in August with our teenage family and there is loads to do and lots of fabulous beaches to explore within a half hour drive. The town of Ayamonte is busy with lots of excellent and very reasonably priced restaurants, whilst there is a good selection of beach side cafes and restaurants at Isla Canela.

Would definitely recommend and would love to go back!

Excellent apartment in a fabulous unspoilt area.

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable and well apartment in a wonderful undiscovered part of Spain. Excellent pool in well-maintained and secure grounds with fabulous beaches a short drive away. Ayamonte is a lovely town with plenty of good restaurants / bars. Owners are very helpful. We've booked to go again next year - what more do we need to say?!

Great stay - very hot in July

  • 4 of 5

The flat is one of the most comfortable and well appointed we have stayed in and excellent value. Having said that, a car is a must; the town and good beaches are not really in walking distance. The swimming pool is really excellent, beaches are brilliant, and the main town Ayamonte nice and interesting. This is still spanish Spain; very few Brits, prices low - great getaway spot! Would go again perhaps not in July though - seriously hot. The owner Jackie, pleasant and very easy to do deal with.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to review our property, we aim to be as helpful as possible in order that our guests have a good experience in our second home and with the aim of them having a relaxing stress free holiday. You will need a car to get to either the beach or the town unless you enjoy walking. Take a look at some images of Spain's best kept secret of the long and wide unspoilt beaches of Isla Canela.

From the Owner

Perfect location for both a beach based holiday or a golf/leisure based activity holiday, whether you want to unwind and chill out with long walks on a fantastic unspoilt beach or brush up on your golf skills on any of the 6 golf course around. Lots of local walks and many other sporting activities available locally. The town is vibrant throughout the year as it is not purely a tourist destination. Plently of opportunities to taste authentic spanish food or with a short visit (15mins) to portugal to taste the Portuguese food. The Marina serves european fayre so all the family can be suited. In the mild winter months as well as golf there is a local (brand new) swimming pool and spa, walks and wildlife to explore.
