Why Catherine Guiver chose Conil de la Frontera

Our house is located on a quiet lane and reached from through the pine woods from El Colorado but at the same time is only 10 minutes from the motorway giving easy access to the white towns of Vejer and Medina Sidonia as well as beautiful cities and towns like Jerez, Cadiz and Seville.

We chose our house with family holidays in mind. The lovely curved walls make it just that bit different, the open feel of the living area with light coming in from all angles and a cool breeze that blows through because of the french doors at either side of the house make it a very relaxing place to be during the summer.

Outside, the garden is:

- perfect for children with large lawns suitable for football, babinton or just running around

- has a large pool with safe shallow end and plenty of space for swimming and games

- a shaded terrace with a table that comfortably sits 10 for long lunches or dinners with family and friends

- private and safe with gates opening onto a quiet lane and hedged borders

The Beaches: We're

- 10 minutes from the cove of Cala del Aceite

- 15 minutes from the perfect waves and surfing of El Palmer

- 20 minutes from the laid-back vibe of the Zahora beaches

- 20 minutes from Novo Sancti Petri and Barossa


Our local town (10 minutes) is the very Spanish seaside town of Conil with family restaurants and ice cream shops but plenty of nightlife too and of course an amazing beach. Conil now has a number of supermarkets where it is easy to buy fresh milk, cereal and other British favourites as well as a huge range of Spanish specialities like local tuna, fish and amazing Spanish meats.

Guestbook comments from the owner

'Another really good point was the showers. So often when

you go away the showers are hopeless, but these were particularly good and always hot.' Carol, August 2009

'We had such a great time and are considering next year already...The house is very spacious and so cool during the day , the beds are really comfortable and it was very well equipped. What a variety of beaches!' Kerry, August 2010

'Thanks again for making everything so easy for us during our stay at Casa Curvada. The house was a great size for us and the boys made the most of the large garden for football in the evenings, after enjoying the pool most of each day. ...it exceeded all our expectations and we had a wonderful stay.' Ruth, June 2011

'It exceeded what we expected in a house, comfortable beds, lovely pool and great garden for the children. Local area had fabulous beaches, great surfing, and lovely old towns to visit. Far preferable, in every way, to the Spanish Mediterranean coast.' William, April 2014

A perfect villa for a relaxing Spanish holiday

  • 5 of 5

The villa is a very nice property and unusual with its curved walls. Very comfortable with everything you need inside and an exceptional outside space with an enclosed garden incorporating a pool and sunbathing area with a barbecue and more shaded area also for when the sun becomes too much!

You will need a car as there is nothing much within walking distance but 3 supermarkets within close proximity so an excellent place to stay once stocked up if you happy to just chill.

We visited Cadiz, Jerez, Vejer, Cabot de Trafalgar and of course Conil very easily by car (would have been difficult in Jerez without GPS!) and spent lots of time just chilling by the pool in the sun. We not beach people but there are loads of beaches both busy and more remote within easy driving distance.

Great checking in procedure with Katherina and partner who explain everything and are available during your stay if necessary.

Loved our stay and would definitely recommend

Lovely Holiday

  • 4 of 5

The villa is set down a quiet lane, quite tight to get a large people carrier in, have to reverse it but once through the gates there is parking for three or four cars. The villa is secure and locking gates over the doors and with cages over the windows give a good feeling to the place and able to leave windows open at night.

The villa has four decent sized bedrooms, two double rooms, one with en-suite, one twin room and one with bunk beds, beds are okay but nothing special. Showers are good in both the en-suite and main bathroom.

The main room and kitchen are open plan with a large dining table between the kitchen and living areas. The kitchen was more than adequately equipped with lots of crockery and cutlery, although some of the crockery was chipped I would hope that this was being towards the end of the holiday season. Everything worked well in the kitchen and along with the bbq area outside were well used and the patio dining table was also used more often than the internal dining table.

The pool isn’t as big as it looks on the photos but that was not surprising and it was very useful at about 6m by 4m, clean and serviced while we were there, it provided hours of good times. The garden is lovely as is the garden furniture and the hedges afford a lot of privacy.

The villa is about 20 minutes walk (5 minutes by car) from the beach, the beaches are wonderful and the prices at the beachfront restaurants reasonable.

Conil de la Frontera is fantastic! 10 minutes up the road by car is a supermercado and a Burger King, but the best things are the high street and beach. The high street has a lot of restaurants, tapas bars and ice cream parlours, but be aware that some don’t open every night and others don’t open until gone 8pm. The atmosphere is lovely, especially in the evening. The beach is also lovely with convenient parking.

Cadiz old town is well worth a visit, too.

Overall, the villa is well equipped, spacious and well worth the four stars we have awarded it. It is perfectly located for exploring this beautiful area of Spain although a car is essential.

Would we stay again? Yes, I would, it ticks all the boxes for a relaxing holiday, for us anyway.

I would not hesitate to recommend this villa to friends and family.

Happy days at Casa Curvada

  • 4 of 5

We had a fabulous fortnight at this spacious villa near Conil.

The villa is beautiful and set in quite a rural area surrounded by large gardens and a great pool. We were just four people but there was loads of space for more. We particularly enjoyed the terraced area outside the kitchen for barbecuing etc.

Definitely need a car as it isn't right next to anything but that wasn't a problem - the Spanish were super organised with parking at all beaches/towns - charging around 1 euro. Great beaches nearby and beautiful towns to visit such as Vejer and Tarifa. We also loved that this area is where the Spanish go on holiday rather than the masses from England.

Thanks for a lovely holiday - the Lang family

Excellent stay at Casa Curvada!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Curvada was absolutely brilliant. We loved our stay so much, that for the first time ever, we would actually visit the same place twice. The villa itself is very private, and secure, with no one overlooking.

The pool was clean anyway, but was cleaned again half-way through our stay. The layout of the villa makes you feel like there is plenty of space, and allows for a sociable atmosphere if you are staying with family and/or friends. All bedrooms were a good size, the 2 bathrooms were well maintained, and the entire property was very clean.

The nearest town, Conil, is approximately a 10-minute drive away, and offers all local amenities, and much more. Excellent beaches, restaurants and shops. Great location for other towns such as Vejer de la Frontera and Cadiz, which are both musts!

Wonderful holiday had by 3 generations of family in a comfortable villa with a large garden and pool

  • 5 of 5

The villa was very clean, comfortable, spacious and well-equipped for our party of seven (with ages ranging from 5 to 80+ years!) The large, lawned garden was completely private and not over-looked. The pool did not need to be heated as it was south facing and warmed by the sun. There were parasols, and an outside covered dining area to the side of the property provided shade when required.

A car is essential but the villa is only about 10 minutes easy drive into the lovely town of Conil with it's characterful streets, numerous restaurants, enormous white sandy beach and several supermarkets. Nearer still is the delightful sheltered bay of Cala del Aceite (only about 5 minutes drive) with it's gentle waves ideal for younger children and nice beach restaurant.

From the villa it was easy to access this beautiful, unspoilt part of Spain. Historic Cadiz is only 30 minutes drive and well worth a visit. The hill-top town of Vejer is wonderful (although with steep narrow streets and many steps not ideal for those with walking difficulties). To the south is the lovely town of Tarifa with it's more cosmopolitan feel and plentiful bars and restaurants.

Our whole family had a wonderful holiday - the villa and the area had much to suit all ages and I would be very happy to return and to recommend it to others..

Excellent property. Perfect for a family or group of people. Excellent outdoor space and pool

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the property in April 2017. The house is located just outside Conil which is an ideal base from which to travel north to Cadiz (which is a must visit, particularly the market) and Jerez and south to Tarifa and the excellent beaches all the way along the coast. The road network in the area is very good and it is easy to get around by car.

The house is attractive, very well equipped if you wish to self cater, has large open plan internal space and a large garden for outside dining and a good size pool.

The beaches are right on the doorstep and Conil has all of the facilities which any tourist would require and a multitude of restaurants.

The house is only 15 minutes from the beautiful hill top town of Vejer andvits many excellent places to eat

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the house and will definitely return very soon

Nearest Airport
73 Kilometres
Nearest Beach
5 Kilometres
Cala del Aceite
Car: necessary


The waves on the gently shelving local beaches are perfect for children to play safely. The villa is 5 minutes drive through the pine woods to the nearest beach at Cala (cove) del Aceite; Conil, El Palmar and Roche beaches are within 15 minutes drive, with still more beaches of every kind, from isolated coves to long windswept playas perfect for windsurfing, within easy reach.


Jerez 45 minutes. Seville 1 hour 30 minutes. Gibraltar 2 hours.

Malaga 3 hours.


Conil 8 minutes. Vejer de la frontera 15 minutes. Medina Sidonia 30 minutes. Cadiz 30 minutes. Jerez 40 minutes. Tarifa 40 minutes. Seville 1 hour 30 minutes. Arcos de la Frontera 1 hour 30 minutes.

Further Details:

Amenities: Although located in the pinewoods, Roche Viejo is only 10 minutes drive from El Colorado and Conil. Both have supermarkets, banks and pharmacists as well as cafes, bars and restaurants of all kinds, including tapas, pizzas and traditional Andalucian fish restaurants. The excellent Cabo Roche rstaurant serves wonderful fish and paella and is only 3 minutes drive from the house on the way to the beach.

Local towns: In summer Conil is a lively family resort bustling with street entertainers, markets and outdoor restaurants and cafes. Vejer, a little further up the road is one of Andalucia's prettiest hilltowns. It enjoys wonderful panoramic views and its winding lanes are bursting with interesting shops and highly recommended restaurants and cafes.

Activities: As well as spectacular beaches, local activities include horse riding, surfing, windsurfing and golf courses. Just inland from Roche Viejo the beautiful unspoilt hills are home to ranches where the famous black bulls are bred. The gentle hills soon give way to the mountains which reach across Cadiz provice to Ronda and beyond. To the north Jerez with its sherry bodegas, horse fair and elegant streets is well worth a visit.
