About the Owner

I'm a Secondary teacher of Spanish living in Brussels with my husband and my three children (10, 15 and 17). El Olivo was our family residence when we lived in Spain before moving to Brussels. We all have very good 'recuerdos' of those good times in Chiclana.

Villa Carmen, in Sanlucar Ref. S23111, has been my mother's family residence from the XIXth century. It was rebuilt in 1990 preserving the ancient structure with the patio and the old well.

Lovely stay in a truly spanish villa

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely relaxing stay here. The villa and its grounds are really beautiful, quiet, 15 minute walk to a lovely beach with a beach bar/marina with restaurant. Julia was around to help out when we asked from some fans as the heat was quite intense. Overall and wonderful trip.

Full of Rustic Charm

  • 5 of 5

The owner Julia was there to greet us and make sure everything was to our liking. The property was full of rustic charm and well maintained with a great pool for our family of 4. The property is well placed in a naturally beautiful area of Southern Spain. There is a fantastic beach called La Barrosa 10 minutes walk up the road set in beautiful pine tree inundated sand dunes. 10 minutes walk down the road you find Las Marismas a beautiful marshy area filled with Flamingos and all sorts of other wonderful birds. A short walk away we also found a fantastic road full all sorts of restaurants to cater for any taste buds, from Italian to Mexican and wonderful local cuisine. We will certainly be back for more, thank you very much Julia and Paco for letting us stay at your wonderful home.

Great villa, beautiful location and fantastic host

  • 5 of 5

We were warmly greeted at El Olivo by owners Julia & Paco. Both went out of their way and above and beyond our expectations of showing us around and giving us information on the area.

Paco gave us a tour of the local area and also took us to the big supermarket where we were able to a good shop for our stay.

The villa had everything we needed and was comfortable for our needs. The outside space was brilliant, there were lovely sunny areas but also shaded areas when needed. Our children loved the space to play in and couldn't get enough of the pool. The villa was very secure and safe. The main beach was about a 15 minute walk and there were plenty of restaurants and bars. Just one thing that we found was because of the trees and the shaded areas it attracted the mozzies but we brought some citronella candles and some jungle formula which helped. We had a fantastic holiday, thank you Julia and Paco.

El Olivo (Chiclana)

  • 5 of 5

In terms of the value, we can't fault it (hence 5 stars). The drive from Seville is straightforward. The villa is lovely and has lots of character. It sits in a great location with a nicely shaded garden, near to a beautiful beaches (short walk / couple of minutes in the car) and really good restaurants (Rincon del Pulpo etc). Three supermarkets are a short drive. The owner is very nice and arranged for us to be me by her gardener, Marco, who was both friendly and very helpful (there was a problem with the swimming pool pump when we first arrived and it was entirely replaced within a few hours). Cadiz, Jerez, and Seville are all a manageable distance by car and each is well worth a visit. We would recommend El Olivo as perfect for a relaxing family holiday.

Fantastic Villa - Something for Everyone

  • 5 of 5

My partner, sister and mother had a great stay at El Olivio. Spacious with lovely bedrooms, a family sized kitchen and a TV/reading area. The garden is fantastic with lots of options for sun or shade sitting by the pool. The outside areas are perfectly placed for sitting and relaxing during the day and it has a great outside area to enjoy eating and drinking. Julia and her houskeepers (Marco and family) were available and extremely helpful.

From the Owner

The place, called Coto San Jose, is considered the most high standing in Chiclana Coast because of its large properties as El Olivo mainly as first residence, in a very peaceful, quiet and natural area, out of turist crowded places but close enough to reach them walking. It is a very suitable place for family life, as we can reach all the amenities in a short walk: marina and sports, beaches, paseo maritimo, shops, etc. All the area is provided with bike lanes. A completely different place in Chiclana coast. Lovely walks around the pinewood, by the seaside, around the marismas. My husband, Classics teacher, is so proud of historic importance of the area. Check about Barossa Battle in Peninsular War 1811.
