Ideal for families or groups of friends looking for a property with huge horizons.

Property Description

I love, love, love this property!

I think one of Tarifa’s secrets as a popular holiday destination is its ability to surprise, and Casa Alcornoque is testament to that. The house is positioned on the edge of a rocky, mountainous ridge in La Peña and only a ten minute drive to the best beaches Tarifa has to offer. Climbing the steep country track to the house, even a vivid imagination does not prepare you for what you will encounter; an exciting and truly hot property!!

The kitchen is a modern, compact and attractive element of the open-plan living, that consists of a sitting, living and dining room (120 m2 of it)! The roofs are high, windows enormous, and the design is interesting; one’s eyes do not settle, as there is such detail.

Ultimately it is the view that holds one’s attention. The huge doors that are the height and the breadth of the living area, lead to the garden and for me the most exciting view in Tarifa – perhaps because it can be enjoyed from such comfort – looking out towards Tarifa town, Los Lances and Africa. If comfort is not your thing, why not enjoy the view cooling off in the most impressive infinity swimming pool in Tarifa!

The master bedroom capitalises on this one-off view with windows covering half of the wall space, so not at any time can you forget where you are. It has an en suite bathroom with bath, shower, and twin sinks. The house sleeps eight comfortably, each with their own private en suite bathroom. There is also a sofa bed on the second floor which would be suitable for two more people or children.

Guest Reviews

“We booked this property as our first family holiday with our one year old. The house is beautiful, the pool is fantastic. The owners could not have been more accommodating. Not only is the house so lovely you don’t want to leave, but it’s also a stone throw from beaches, amazing restaurants and Tarifa town, which is beautiful. Couldn’t recommend this place enough - we’ll be back!”

“We spent a week at this villa and everything was perfect. It is a wonderful house, situated on top of a hill and with incredible views. The surroundings are natural and very quiet but at the same time close to everything. Tastefully decorated and with excellent hosts! 100% recommended!”

“We spent two weeks at this property in Tarifa. The villa is incredibly spacious and tastefully decorated. The exposed location with a great view and the infinity pool made the stay a real pleasure. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. They gave us very good recommendations of restaurants in Tarifa and surroundings. An oasis of well-being that leaves nothing to be desired. We will be back!”

“Spectacular location overlooking the bay of Tarifa. Kindly managed and furnished.”
