Villa in Pago del Humo, Chiclana de la Frontera - Self Catering, 3 Bedrooms, near to the Local Amenities
Villa with patio and barbecue area set in a lawned garden with trees and shrubs. The garden is fully enclosed and is private and very secure. There is a swimming pool (8x4m) for the sole use of guests and a shaded area is provided to escape the heat of the hot summer sun. Within a 5 minute walk you will find the nearest Venta (bar/restaurant), Casa Blas, where you will always get a welcome reception. This is the busiest Venta in the area although the Florentina, which is approximately 1 kilometre away is also worth a visit. There is a small shop next to Casa Blas which sells basic requirements and is open late in the evening. A Pharmacy is a further 2 minutes walk away. There is a bus stop outside Casa Blas, which takes you into Chiclana, where you can catch buses to other locations. The beach at La Barrosa (Novo Sancti Petri) is a 15 minute drive, the town of Chiclana a 7 minute drive, the city of Cadiz a 20 minutes drive and Gibraltar, for tax free shopping and Rock Tours, a 1 hour drive.
About the Owner
Guestbook comments from the owner
The villa was just perfect and everything was just as described or better.
We enjoyed our holiday in Chiclana and we would love to do it again.
We enjoyed our stay very much what a lovely tranquil place, the pool was fab, everything we wanted!!! We hope to stay again.
We had such a lovely week and really enjoyed the area. The house was great and it was nice having your representative on hand for any queries that we had, she was extremely helpful. We really appreciated the CD collection that you have!
Activity and Interests
The beach at La Barrosa is approx 15 minutes by car and provides miles of golden sand. Along the coast can be found several small villages as well as pine forests and these are well worth visiting. You can take a walk along the long sandy beaches which line the Atlantic coast of Andalucia.
Fly to Jerez from Stanstead which is approx 30-40 minutes from Chiclana. Seville airport is approx 1 hour 30 minutes away, Gibraltar 1 hour 15 minutes and Malaga is approx 2 hours 30 minutes. Ryanair fly to Jerez and Seville from Stansted and to Malaga from Liverpool, East Midlands and Dublin. Easyjet fly to Malaga from Manchester, Gatwick, Stansted and now to Gibraltar from Gatwick.
Situated in Pago del Humo it is approx a 7 minute drive to Chiclana, the nearest town. The historic city of Cadiz is a 20 minute drive away. Gibralter with it's tax free shopping and the rock apes is about an hours drive. Tarifa, for windsurfing is an hours drive, from here you can also get a day trip to Tangier in Morocco. Other places that may be of interest include the Donana National Park, Selwo Wildlife Park, and the city of Seville all within 1 hour 30 minutes drive away.
There are 6 Ventas within walking distance although the liveliest is just at the top of the road and you will always get a friendly welcome from the owner (Blas). The food served is Andalucian and is good and very reasonably priced.
Further afield, a taxi ride away, or you can take the bus to Chiclana and then a further bus, is the resort of Novo Sancti Petri where you will find a wide range of restaurants and bars, including Indian, Italian, Mexican and even a Swiss restaurant (details of locations will be in the information pack in the villa). In the town of Chiclana there are a range of Venta's (bar/restaurants), three Chinese restaurants and an Indian Restaurant.
This is a great area for experiencing real Spain and not a tourist resort. The area is awash with 'Pueblo Blancos' (white villages) and if you go to Vejer de la Frontera you will be assured of a fantastic view across the plains.
The city of Cadiz is a must for a visit where the old meets the new. Take a walk around the old quarter and visit the old market, walk around the walls of the old city or just sit outside a cafe and enjoy a glass of coffee and watch the world go by. At the bottom of the city is a lovely garden with some fantastic bourgainvillea displays.
For guests with children there is a water park, Aqualand, situated near to El Puerto de Santa Maria. The park is open from the middle of June to early September.
