The Casita is set in tropical trees and offers 1,000 sqr mtrs of well laid out gardens to be enjoyed by guests and a further 1,000 sqr mtrs through the archway of lawns and shrubs offering total privacy and open views to the hills behind the Casita. The owners property is set well away from the Casita. We are in a quiet location 6km from the centre of Chiclana de la Frontera. It is within easy driving distance of miles of golden sands from Conil to Cadiz. The property offers unspoilt views of the hills and countryside for as far as the eye can see. The property is very private and has full use of the pool; for your use there is a Merendero under cover with seating and a table for candlelit evenings, your own barbecue, terraces and a variety of areas in sun and shade to enable you to relax and chill out. We are in easy reach of the historical town of Cadiz, Jerez is 40 minutes drive and Seville is about 110 km we also enjoy easy access to traditional white Andalucian Villages. For the visitor that enjoys nature and beautiful views this is the perfect location for bird watching as we have birds of prey nesting close by, it would also be an artists dream. There are a lot of unspoilt tracks for walking,cycling and horse riding, we also have many golf courses and a variety of water sports.

About Mrs. Dianne B Cale

My husband and I have lived in Spain since 2008 and enjoy our home very much as it is set in a beautiful area with open views of the countryside and now has a well established garden with lawns and flowering shrubs. We have fallen in love with the area especially the unspoilt coastline and natural pine forests. We are outdoor people and love sporting activities. Our passion is cycling and will help guests who enjoy cycling to hire bikes and find routes. This area is ideal for cycling, walking and horse riding as there are miles of quiet roads.

In England we owned a Bakery working day and night, so this is paradise. We are animal lovers and have 2 dogs and 2 cats who are very sociable and well used to meeting our new guests.

Mrs. Dianne B Cale purchased this chalet in 2008

Why Mrs. Dianne B Cale chose Chiclana de la Frontera

We bought a property in Costa de la Luz because it is relatively unspoilt especially the rugged coastline with no high rise apartments. We enjoy our open views and the feeling of freedom and with long warm summers what better than being able to jump in the pool whenever you like. We feel that we are a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of city life, but it is just down the road if we want it, and it only takes 10 minutes to get there. We have a great range of bars and restaurants with a great range of authentic food at reasonable prices, or if you prefer you can just have a Tapas.

What makes this chalet unique

The casita is set in a quiet location with a great variety of birds, so perfect for bird watchers but if you just want to relax you will feel the stresses of everyday life just fall away while taking in the extensive views and beautiful gardens.. We have a perfect climate here, the heat of the summer is offset by the cooling sea breezes and the winters are generally warmer than England with much lighter evenings.

This is the Costa de la luz (the coast of light) named aptly because of bright clear long days. Ideal for artists and bird watchers.

Fantastic away from it all casita!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay, and thanks to Di's help and local knowledge we recovered from a weeks stay in hospital. Our time at the casita was short because of it but we loved it. Everything you need and more and a lovely pool and grounds.

Really pleasant stay!

  • 5 of 5

Little to add to what many other people have said. The accommodation is really comfortable, and the grounds immaculate. Superb swimming pool!

Dianne is really friendly and welcoming. She is also very helpful, but will leave you alone so that you can have as much privacy as you want. Lovely dogs and cats. Our favourite, “Patch”, is really friendly.

We had a great time, and would thoroughly recommend it.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure having these guests share our little bit of paradise, they had a great plan to visit as many as possible of the outstanding cities and coastline beaches with all the history and unspoilt beauty of Costa de la Luz. They loved every minute and are hoping to come back next year to explore even more of this delightful part of Spain. Dianne

Special interest holidays:

My husband and I run a cycling group, we normally meet every Sunday and cater for all abilities, we know of many routes and have a local bike hire shop close by so you would be able to join in if cycling is your passion.

We also have spare bikes for your use if required.


We have a magnificent coastline that stretches for miles with golden sand and promenades, the beaches are never crowded and you have the choice of the more commercial or the tranquil stretches of unspoilt coast. The nearest beach is La Barrosa about 15 minutes by car. Water sports are popular here and Laura at Trafalgar surf can offer you lessons, equipment hire and general help on where to go for the best surf.

This relatively unspoilt area is where the Spanish choose to take their holidays.


Airports: Jerez de la Frontera is 35 minutes. Seville is 1.5 hours. Gibraltar is 1 hour. Malaga is 2.5 hours via motorway. Use of a car is recommended: car hire is available from all airports. There is a local bus service to Chiclana, and from Chiclana there are connections to Cadiz, Jerez and Seville and all the beaches. Madrid is 6 hours drive. NEW FROM THIS YEAR EASY JET BRISTOL/GIBRALTAR, GREAT FOR PEOPLE LIVING IN THE SOUTH WEST!!!


Pago del Humo has all facilities including a pharmacy, a mini,supermarket general stores with a hot bread bake-off and many bar/restaurants. Chiclana is a 5 minute drive and is a large bustling town with old and new, it has a Tuesday market by the river not to be missed. Jerez famous for it's sherry and horses is 40 mins drive, Conil a pretty seaside town is 10 mins drive, Medina Sidonia (over 3000 years old) a white village is 20 mins drive. Cadiz steeped in history is a 35 min. drive

Further Details:

White villages set in the hills slightly inland are well worth a visit. Medina Sidonia, Vejer de la Frontera and Arcos are all worth a visit with their hilltop presence and magnificent views, cobblestone streets and beautiful town squares. Sample the Fiestas and Carnivals in the premier city of Seville. Isla Magica (like Alton Towers) is also to be found here for the kids amongst us! Also visit Puerto Santa Maria for the Waterpark. Visit and enjoy the tours around the Sherry and Brandy bodegas of Jerez and for the evening visit one of the many shows from the famous dancing horses to the fabulous Flamenco.

Explore Tarifa famous for it's wind and kite surfing and of course it's dunes, Roman ruins and plenty of white sands. You can also take a trip whale and Dolphin watching from here.

If you are feeling adventurous take the ferry to Tangiers Morocco and shop till you drop in the Souks also tantalise your taste buds with Moroccan cuisine and a culture with a difference.

Gibraltar with it's history, rocks, caves, Barbary Apes and duty free shopping is a good day out, but be prepared for long delays at the border and remember to take your passport!! It's better and cheaper to park outside for the day, walk through and take the buses, a day pass is cheap and the open top buses are fun in the summer.

Take the ferry from Puerto Santa Maria over to Cadiz (the oldest port in Europe) steeped in history and charm with quaint Tapas Bars.

Street markets are a must and will be found on different days in all the local towns.
