About the property

Villa in Chiclana de la Frontera, Costa de la Luz, Spain - 10 - 15 Minutes Drive from Barrosa Beach

Beautiful three bedroom white washed villa which was built in 2005. Located in Pinar Francesces which is a semi rural residential area situated outside Chiclana De La Frontera. The villa is one of four identical villas, two of which are the primary homes of Spanish families. The villa is ideally located for you to visit numerous places of interest in the region but you will need a vehicle. This area of Spain offers all modern amenities but has not been commercialised. Our villa is situated in a totally private, gated plot with views over farmland and is not overlooked at all. It has a small private swimming pool which is kept scrupulously clean and has underwater lighting. The villa is very well equipped and extremely secure.

About Sue Parker

Casa Feliz is owned by Jean Parker, who is retired and lives in Cheshire.

It was purchased as holiday home for all the family to use. We visit the villa as often as we can, we chose this part of Spain as it is so easy to get to from most of the British Airports, it is in the most southerly and sunniest part of Spain and because the area has so much to offer.

When we were looking to purchase a villa, we viewed many properties in the area, and this one stood out - spacious and in a particularly good location, being very private and not close to any industrial areas.

We take pride in maintaining the villa to the highest standard and have had many compliments on the tasteful interior. We are sure you will love staying here!

Why Sue Parker chose Los Franceses-la Vega

We chose this area of Spain for so many different reasons! It is easily accessible with daily flights from the UK to most of the airports in the region.

The Costa De La Luz offers the best weather in Spain, it is southerly the endless sunshine is tempered by the breeze that comes off the Atlantic coast, making the air fresher than on the Mediterranean.

The area offers so much to see and do, historic cities and towns, wonderful walks in the countryside, real Spanish food, fantastic horse riding, and plenty of very good golf courses.

We also love that the area is very 'Spanish' and that the wonderful festivals and fiestas are so authentic and real.

What makes this villa unique

We love the fact that the villa is so private, being not overlooked and not close to any industrial areas. The plot is spacious and quite often we have found ourselves staying in during the evening, round the pool until 9pm during the summer months. There is a choice of airports in the area which was another big plus for us. There are endless places to go sightseeing, such as the historic towns of Cadiz and Jerez, known as the birthplace of Flamenco and Seville which is easily accessible by car or the local train from Chiclana,which is very reasonable. The beaches in the area are stunning, with fine sand and are much less crowded than the Mediterranean.

There are countless places to eat, offering authentic Spanish dishes and wonderful wines.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have a visitors book at the villa which is full of lovely comments. I think one of the best testimonials we can offer is that a number of our guests have returned to the villa for a second, or even third holiday!

Very clean and well equipped. Lots of great places to visit in this area of Spain. The villa had good wifi and tv and was in a peaceful location. We loved it and will not hesitate to recommend to friends, Sarah.

Good base to go exploring from with Cadiz and Sevilla not far away. Quite at this time of year and a car is a must. Villa is well equipped and clean. The area is very Spanish!

Super holiday in a lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for three weeks out of season and were very happy with our choice of villa and the area. The villa was in a very quiet location and was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. This villa is spacious and very comfortable with tasteful decor. We did not use the private pool as we stayed in December and it was covered over, but it was a large pool and totally private, we would think very welcome in the warmer months!

Good WiFi and tv connections if this is important.

Beautiful area of Spain, with many wonderful places to visit in the region.

Recommended....we would book again.

We would not recommend this property. Not up to standard you would expect for a holiday rental.

  • 1 of 5

Overall our experience was totally unsatisfactory.

This was primarily due to an extremely large lurcher type dog next door barking at all times of the day and night. This included the middle of the night and happened every night. Consequently my family had very little sleep during our stay.

Whilst we accept a neighbours dog is out of control of this villas owner we had contacted the owner prior to travel after seeing a bad review about this. We were reassured it was not an issue as the dog only barked for a few minutes during the day when someone arrived at the villa next door.

This was completely inaccurate. The numerous comments dating back several years about lack of sleep and barking written in the guest book in the property indicate the owner is well aware of the issue and concealed it even when asked directly about it.

In addition to noise the condition of the pool was poor. There were numerous missing/loose/broken tiles in the pool. It was not looked after well whilst we were there either. During our stay the pool developed green algae. As a direct consequence of swimming in the pool before it was obvious to the naked eye the pool was contaminated my son developed a serious ear infection. He required antibiotics upon our return home.

Finally the fridge was unclean upon our arrival and full of stagnant water in the bottom which I had to clean before being able to use. Indeed whilst the villa was clean overall it was superficially clean only eg kitchen cupboards were grubby inside.

We addressed all concerns directly to the property owner first and invited them to respond. All we received back was a catalogue of excuses and denials. There was no acceptance of the credibility of our issues.

We always use Home Away properties and have never had a poor experience prior to this. It will not stop us using Home Away again but I will never use this property again nor would I recommend anyone else to.

Owner's Response: So very sorry you did not enjoy your stay and that you disliked Andalusia in general. We did discuss the location before you left and gave you the option of a full refund as you were not sure the region was suitable for your needs. Post trip you reported issues in relation to your stay which we have noted, although your comments were very much at odds with the lovely comments recorded by other guests in 2017 and two parties have asked to return to our villa in 2018. We did have another comment on the barking dog from the next door villa - we are happy to report that the neighbor has addressed this problem and is using a remote/sonic collar on the dog (I am not sure exactly what but the last two guests reported that there was no issue with a barking dog). The swimming pool does get a slight bloom in very hot weather due to the chlorine - but this is unavoidable in keeping the water clean. We have owned and rented out our villa for 12 years now and have had consistently lovely comments from our guests, many have returned for a second and even third stay. Kind regards

Lovely villa, lovely pool, lovely location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Casa Feliz - we loved the rural location, the close proximity to shops and beach, the pool was fantastic and the villa had all the facilities you need. Only thing that could improve it is air con. We absolutely loved it and would book to stay again in a heartbeat. Hope to be back next year.

8 Miles
Car: necessary


The villa is located 10 -15 minutes drive from Barrosa Beach which is five miles long and sandy, with bars and restaurants along the promenade. There are also numerous other beaches and coves to be discovered in the area, all of which are sandy. The Costa de la Luz is a prime location for windsurfing. Tarifa (approx one hour drive,) is the southernmost point of Spain. This town is well worth visiting, for whale and dolphin watching boat trips, or ferry to Morocco (half hour crossing).


The nearest airport is Jerez which is approx 35 minutes drive. Gibraltar Airport is around one hours drive, Seville Airport is around one hours drive and Malaga Airport is around two and a half hours. The driving routes from all the airports consist of mainly A class roads.


The nearest shops and bars are around five minutes drive. There is one small bar approximately ten minutes walk from the villa and there is a large Eroski supermarket approximately one and a half miles from the villa. Chiclana De La Frontera town centre is around four miles away. The historic City of Cadiz (20 minutes) Jerez (30 minutes) and Seville (1 hour) by car. Local trains are a cheap and easy option to some of the major cities.

Further Details:

The area has so much to offer. Our villa is well placed for you to visit the historic cities of Seville and Cadiz. There are some lovely walks in the region, and numerous little villages to visit, but you will need a car. Of particular interest is Jerez, with its' Sherry and wine tasting houses and the Andalucian horses - there are two dressage shows per week. We would also recommend Tarifa which is the most southerly town in Spain, and is just over one hours drive from the villa. From here you can get a ferry to Tangiers in Morroco (fastest crossing is just 35 minutes). You can also go dolphin and whale watching as this stretch of water has one of the highest concentrations of sea mammals in the Northern Hemisphere.

The villa is located in a quiet semi rural residential area yet is within a short drive of all amenities.
