About the Owner

We are Brian and Elizabeth Wolfe and we bought our villa in Spain back in 1989 after looking at numerous countries and areas for somewhere we really liked. We are both retired and live near Guildford in Surrey with our two cats. We play golf and have found the courses near our villa to be really enjoyable, if somewhat challenging at times. I love reading which is why you'll find so many holiday reading books in the lounge. Feel free to borrow these - if you want to take one away, please leave another in its place.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house is a delight. Inside it is light and spacious with a brilliantly equipped kitchen. Outside there is a superb shaded dining area, a BBQ and a sun terrace. There are so many places within easy reach to visit. We are counting the days to our return visit! We love this haven of peace and quiet and have holidayed here as a family and with friends. Elaine Cox, Crowborough

A fantastic holiday villa, this property is not just another holiday villa but is a cared for home. It has everything you need at your finger tips! The pool is beautiful and sits in a spacious garden, which our children loved to play in. The outdoor BBQ and terrace are stunning and the garden gets the sun all day. The house sits in a quiet part of Roche but only 5 mins walk to the fabulous beach. Roche centre is also a short walk and has a great park with a variety of shops. I would definitely book again and if giving stars this one gets 5 in my book. Joanne & Peter McKay 1-15 July 2012

Beautiful villa in unspoiled part of Spain

  • 5 of 5

Spacious, well equipped and thoughtfully laid out villa, beautifully kept and spotless. Large garden, with plenty of shade, BBQ area and delightful pool. Idyllic location, within walking distance of unspoiled long sandy beach, ideal for families.good resteraunts within easy reach. If you want to cater for yourself there is an excellent place nearby to get fresh fish and vegetables, Tuna is a speciality of this area. The owners go out of their way to help, also a good comprehensive guide to the villa and local amenities provided. I have brought my family here twice and we will definitely return. A beautiful uncommercial part of Spain - a million miles away from the busy beaches of the Costa del Sol.

A perfect place

  • 5 of 5

For almost 15 years I have been escaping the Irish "summer" regularly to find guaranteed sun and beaches suitable for bikinis rather than wetsuits in the South of Europe. Returning not only to the same place but the same house this summer was a first, however. But why keep looking if you have found the perfect place! Elizabeth and Brian's house is exactly as you see on the website pictures: spacious, clean, nicely furnished with a wonderful garden with lots of shade. If anything, house, garden and pool are bigger than what they seem on the pictures. What we really appreciated was the fantastically equipped kitchen, not only in terms of appliances but also in terms of kitchen wear, pots, pans, cutlery - several grades above your average holiday-home standard. Also, everything from dishwasher detergent to candles, from basic spices to sugar was available - great start if you plan to do lots of cooking yourself. Which is a good option in Roche, as supermarkets, fish shops and green grocers are nearby - easy to reach by car, but also by bicycle, if all you need is the fish and the vegetables for dinner. Very nice outdoor barbecue also availablee; much appreciated: the stable and fast wifi connection in the house. How things work, tips about what to do and where to eat are all available in a big, up-to-date folder. And Elizabeth and Brian are great for providing information by e-mail before you arrive - including excellent directions for driving from Jerez airport to the villa. Booking and payments are absolutely hassle free and reliable. And the beach, a five minute walk away, is simply spectacular. Make sure to go at different times during the day as the atmosphere is completely different during the quiet, misty mornings, the busy afternoons and the romantic sunset.

Absolutely Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

I came to the villa with my family, including my one year old daughter. The location is absolutely fantastic, with easy access to a stunning beach and very good restaurants.

The villa has everything you could need and more, with an excellent kitchen, very comfortable and well equipped living room and comfortable bed. There was also a proximity wristband to make sure my daughter didn't get too close to the pool which was a wonderful thing to have. There was also a cot and everything we need for the baby.

The pool was very nice, and was super-refreshing in the August heat and the BBQ was fantastic for days we stayed in.

It is so nice at the villa that it's tempting to just stay there all day, but it is worth visiting local towns too, and there are lovely places a short drive away. There are also good supermarkets a short drive away.

I really recommend, especially for families. It is a wonderful location untouched by foreigner-friendly bars and Blackpool-esque horridness! The microclimate of the Cadiz region also means it's much cooler than other parts of Spain and there's always a nice breeze. It was very pleasant even in August.

We love this part of Spain, Roche in particular, as it's very Spanish. This was our fourth visit but the first time in this villa and it will definitely be our preferred choice in the future. Elizabeth was more than flexible with our dates and times of arrival and departure, which made our holiday the more relaxing. The villa is very clean, the kitchen has everything you could need & more & the garden/pool area is huge and excellent. We spent more than just a few days relaxing here as the villa is perfectly located for a quiet holiday. Barrossa beach is fantastic, lovely sand, lots of space (except weekends when the locals descend!!) and good surf for body boarding. Cadiz & Tarifa are definitely worth a visit and are easy to drive to. Local restaurants cater for everyone's taste but the villa has a BBQ for those nights you just don't want to go out. We love Roche and the square in the evening is a good place to visit for a drink or something to eat too.

Spent two weeks at this lovely peaceful villa on Roche, which had everything you needed and I mean everything. Lovely pool set in a lovely garden. Elizabeth the owner was always very helpful and Claudia her local agent was also very helpful. We will be back.

Sun, Sea and Sand!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautifully and generously equipped and comfortable house for a family in the quiet and tranquil environment of Roche, a private estate. It is five minutes walk from the sea where there is the most fantastic, long and wide beach - perfect for sandcastle building. There were also a lot of surfers around with some good waves. There is a nearby playground for small people, sports facilities and further along the beach in both directions are restaurants (accessible by car or a beach walk). The owners agent, Claudia, was delightful and most helpful.

We spent a week there with our son, daughter-in-law and two small granddaughters. There is a security system for the swimming pool and still plenty of space in the shady part of the garden for play. There is lots of seating outside, both for dining and lounging.

An excellent small but well provisioned supermarket (owned by the delightful Manolo and his family) is about a mile away. Other shops and a larger supermarket is a mile or two further on.

There are the charming "white towns" nearby and Jerez (home of sherry) and historic Cadiz are not far away. The new motorways in the area are excellent and free! We flew to Gibraltar where Spain is literally a short walk away. We pre-booked a hire car and found the process of picking it up relatively easy. It is only about 1.5hours from Roche.

Whether you are a family with young children or older youngsters this is the perfect spot for a beach or poolside holiday. If you prefer more of a sightseeing holiday there is plenty of choice in the surrounding area with lively restaurants, etc. but you do need a car.

We look forward to going back!

Activity and Interests

Car: necessary


The Costa de la Luz has the longest, cleanest and quietest beaches in Southern Spain. 5 minutes walk takes you to Roche's unspoiled sandy beach. In summer (July to September) there are beach bars, showers, lifeguard stations and toilet facilities provided. Weekends are relatively busy (in August) but there is always plenty of space to walk, swim in the sea or relax on the sand. Between Roche and Conil there are small coves to swim from (Calas de Conil) accessed via steps down the cliff faces.


Driving time from airports are around 40 minutes to Jerez de la Frontera, 1.5 hours to Seville via motorways, 1.5 hours to Gibraltar and 2.5 hours to Malaga via motorways. Motorways to Seville and Malaga are toll roads (Peaje).

Car hire is essential.


Roche is situated halfway between Conil and Chiclana de la Frontera, both of which can be reached within 15 minutes drive. Cadiz and Media Sidonia are around 30 minutes away. Vejer, well worth a visit, is around 20 minutes drive.

Further Details:

The historic cities of Seville, Jerez (Sherry bodega tours, the famous riding school and the home of Flamenco) and Cadiz (the oldest city in Europe) are within easy reach. Travel to Cadiz by boat from Puerta Santa Maria, a fun way into the city without the hassle of parking. Magical hilltowns are perched high above groves of cork oaks, olives and vinyards. A drive through these to Ubrique (fantastic local leather goods) via Alcala (National park) takes you through beautiful scenery and provides a tase of the real, unspoiled, Spain. There are many local restaurants providing good, local, food. El Timon, in Roche, on the cliff top with beautiful sea views. Manguita in La Barossa, offering fresh fish, prawns, crab, lobster etc, in true Spanish style. La Patria in the hills near Vejer with excellent food and views, El Cachito in Novo Sancti Petri has good Spanish food and the Golf club house itself offers very good value and tasty lunches. For self catering there are two good supermarkets in 10 minutes drive in El Colorado and next to Novo Sancti Petri. A fruiteria on the main road into Roche, five minutes drive, provides all basic requirements with fresh fruit, vegetables and bread. Supermarket in Chiclana,& Conil covers every need and is only 15 minutes away. Roche and El Colarado also have mini-markets, newsagent and pharmacy etc are within 10 minutes walk or 5 min drive of the villa.
