About Claire Sandford

I live in Spain with my husband, two children and chocolate labrador. We both love Ayamonte and the surrounding area which has so much to offer.

Claire Sandford purchased this house in 2006

Why Claire Sandford chose Costa de la Luz - Huelva

We bought a property in Ayamonte as we were looking to get away from mainstream tourism and to savour a part of true Spanish Andalusian culture.

The area around Ayamonte and indeed the Eastern Algarve (only a stones throw away) is truly unspoilt and offers miles and miles of long sandy beaches which you would be hard-pushed to find elsewhere whilst enjoying one of the best climates that Europe has to offer.

What makes this house unique

The house has its own private pool and is within walking distance to the centre of Ayamonte. The house is set on the banks of the River Guadiana and offers breathtaking views from almost all rooms across the river towards Portugal. Sunsets are truly sensational and sitting out on one of the terraces watching the boats on the river will make you forget any stresses - it truly is therapeutic.

Fabulous stay

  • 5 of 5

Myself husband 3 children in their twenties and spouses had a fabulous time at the villa, the pool although not huge was sufficient for a cool down and the villa was immaculate and well maintained. Larger than the photos suggest. Claire was great from the first enquiry answering all questions. Jason met us at the villa in the evening we had directions and got a taxi from Faro. We did not hire a car and found Ayamonte a lovely town with numerous bars and restaurants, the walk took approx 10-15 mins turn right from villa and then left and follow the road almost straight into town. We used the El Jamon supermarket which was about 5 mins walking. We took the ferry across to Portugal which was a nice trip but other than that we relaxed by the pool and had lovely food and drink and family time. I would highly recommend.

Exactly as pictured and stated

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived we were bowled over by the accuracy of the description and details. Large clean modern town house with charming wall pictures that gave a homely feel. Every where was immaculate. Although there were many stairs and the access to and from the town of Ayamonte was a fair walk, we managed very well considering our senior years. The spectacular view of the river and Portugal opposite was awe inspiring. We certainly will be returning in the very near future.

Lovely house, fantastic views, great location

  • 5 of 5

A great property in a fantastic location. The views over the river to Portugal are beautiful. The house is very well equipped with everything you would need. The pool was lovely especially in the afternoon to cool down after a busy morning exploring Ayamonte. The town itself has a pretty square and numerous shops and restaurants. The best restaurant in town is a must but would recommend some of the smaller restaurants such as cocina de mi madre which serves great tapas. We took a couple of trips over to Portugal via the ferry and over the bridge which you can see from the house. We have stayed in several areas of Spain but we genuinely feel this is our new favourite place. Overall a great house in a great location.

Super house!!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a 2 week holiday in the house and we loved it!

The house is the best equipped we have ever seen. Absolutely no problem to cook anything you would like. Nice that the spices and so on were left for the next guest to use. Makes for a quite good collection that we added to! Super barbeque by the pool that we used most nights.

Pool and area around the pool was large enough for our company of 4 adults and 4 children and the pool towels that were waiting for us at our arrival were great!!

Since the house has bedrooms on 3 levels it doesn`t feel crowded and one can easily find a quiet place.

We spent almoust every evening on the terrace alooking at the sunset!

The Jamon supermarket just down the road was good for the everyday shopping but a more interesting supermarket is the Mercadona at the shopping center that is a 10 minute walk away. Easy to walk there, do the shopping and then call a taxi to go back, it`s only 5 EUR and well worth it! Large selection of fresh fish and lots of meat! Great vegetables.

We used the Fran/Javier taxi service. It was great, we texted them and they responded immediately and sent a taxi straight away. We used them several times to go to the beach in Isla Canela at a 10 EUR cost each way.

Last but not least, very close by the house, at the crossing where the green bricked house is, turn right and walk a few meters down to the to the Meson los Caleros. This place is an absolute gem, food is great, drinks are great, prices are great and the satff is great! A five star from us, we ate here 7 times over our 2 weeks stay!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six, including our 2 year old son and my mother of 76 had a great holiday. The villa is really nice with a lovely pool. The gate securing the pool made it very suitable for families with toddlers. Great location with walking distance to the charming town of Ayamonte. Lovely view over the river. Thanks for a great stay!

Summer of 2015

  • 5 of 5

A Beautiful well equipped house, making for an easy enjoyable stay, Ayamonte is a lovely typical Spanish town, great places to eat and shop, with an added bonus of being on the boarder with Portugal. I would recommend hiring a car as there are so many places to visit and things to do. The only down side for us, because we took elderly parents, was a short steep hill getting back to the property, and no hand rail to assist getting into the pool. having said this i would still recommend this property as it did not spoil a wonderful relaxing 2 weeks. The owner Claire and Jason the manager who greets you are helpful and accommodating and very very nice :). We have stayed in many villas in Spain over the years and this would be in our top ten for location views and Ayamonte Town.
