Villa With private pool and large Garden near beach. Ideal for exploring area.



Updated: 24-Jul-2016
Villa near Barossa Beach. Costa de la Luz - Quiet Peaceful Location, Close To Amenities And The Beach But Very Private

La Palmera is a one storey detached villa set in the semi-rural area of Sotillo. It has three bright and airy double bedrooms. Its unusually large and not overlooked garden is laid out to grass, stone and patio with mature plants and palms. There is a good sized very private swimming pool for your exclusive use. It is located along a quiet residential road just over a mile from the beautiful La Barossa beach with 8 kms of Blue Flag sandy beach and half a mile from a parade of shops and tapas bars from where you can catch the bus to Chiclana or La Barossa. The nearest large supermarket is 1.5 miles away. There is an outside covered porch with table and chairs at the front and also a patio area at the rear, directly accessed from the kitchen with a brick built BBQ, sunloungers, umbrella etc. and a path leading to large 8x6m pool. Our English representative will meet you at the villa and tell you about all the things that make our area of the Costa de la Luz so special; where to eat, where to shop, where to swim etc. She is available to help you with any unforeseen problems throughout your stay.

I suspected the villa might be a bit too good to be true but, on the contrary, it was far bigger and better than the pictures led us to believe. We barely left the pool side for an entire week! Bea, Sophie and Nel. June 2013

La Palmera is a beautiful villa with a fantastic garden and pool. It is an ideal base for a great holiday.Mike & Hayley,June 2012

Fantastic Holiday At Villa Palmera

  • 5 of 5

First of all thank you lis for making the booking process so easy and for all your help with the little details you need when going on holidays with small children very refreshing when booking a holiday, The Villa was stunning and spotless even nicer than i expected, loads of room and we all enjoyed having our breakfast on the terrace in the morning, the pool was fab and we spent loads of time splashing about, i found the location to be perfect as we had privacy but could drive to the beach in a few mins and i would walk up to the Venta bar the odd evening for a cervesa and a tapa or 2, i would like to thank hazel who was very helpful and helped us with finding a medical center before we even arrived , when we arrived hazel met us at the villa and gave us some great advice very nice lady , if you are looking for relaxation and a really nice place to stay i would highly reccomend

Great property, tranquile and very private

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in La Palmera for two weeks. The property is exactly as seen in the pictures, we didn't have any bad surprises. Everything was in perfect working order, the pool was great, clean and well taken care of and the air conditioning was welcomed in some hot afternoons. There is shops, bars and restaurants within a few minutes drive and the barbecue was great to meet with family and friends for a nice Al fresco dinner. The house was clean and had everything needed for a relaxed trouble-free experience (even some UK adapter plugs, always very handy). Elizabeth,

the owner, and Hazel, the on-site property manager were nice, honest and helpful. The beach is really close and the area has some great things to visit, including whale watching. I hope to come back some day. Very much recommended.

Great location and facilities

  • 3 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our first stay in this area. Perfect location for local amenities and sightseeing. The villa was very comfortable, well equipped and clean. The pool was wonderful and it was great to sit in the lovely garden and relax. La Barrossa is the best beach ever and Cadiz is a must.

Filthy dirty kitchen,oven, (Ice trays had mould/fungus) everything sticky,windows not cleaned. WCs not working properly,shower heads spraying everywhere, even on arrival the bed linen was STAINED most of the spare linen musty, we spent the first 4 days cleaning & washing everything.

Too many things to mention,but really horrible experience, although we had a discount for 5 weeks, YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR, there is NO WAY that we can reccomend this awful place, on complaining to the owners they denied all our complaints,i'm sure our standard of cleanliness outweighs theirs by miles.(good points,the Gardener a great person,likewise the Agent, but needs to employ more conscientious cleaners & supervise thoroughly.

Owner's Response: This was a very long rental out of season and all your complaints were immediately addressed to your satisfaction at the time. We were only aware of your unhappiness when we received an email on your return to England, asking for compensation. We have spoken at great length to our manager and all her team but feel there was nothing more that they could have done to make your stay a happier one. We pride ourselves on the cleanliness of our villa, which was our home when we lived in Spain and is still our own personal holiday home when not rented out. Lis and Nev

Family holiday 2015

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this villa for 11 nights and really enjoyed the experience. The property is very private and has a great pool with steps for the little ones. It also has plenty of shade in the garden provided by tall coniferous trees to the left of the property. We drove to the beach and other nearby spots during the day and spent time at the villa in the evening. We had many meals sitting in the veranda and listening to the local roosters! A car is necessary however as although the villa is near the beach the roads around it are small and without footpaths. This was not an issue for us as we have young kids and would not have walked the distance regardless. We have been visiting the Chiclana area for the last 5 years and this property is one of the best we have stayed in. I would easily recommend it !

Owner's Response: Thanks and am so glad you enjoyed your stay. Yes a car is essential and we do advise all guests that. I'm afraid footpaths are a rarity in the area and when we first bought the villa, ten years ago, even the road was a dirt track though now thankfully it's tarmacked. The advantage is the lack of traffic if you really want to relax in peace!!

The nearest venta (Spanish bar) is within easy walking distance and going the other way, there is a parade of small shops and bars about a kilometre away where you can catch a bus either to the beach or Chiclana.
