Courtyard Cottage I

Ideal for families or groups of families looking for a special place to stay with a pool.

Property Description

Two courtyard cottages that offer a relaxing, enjoyable and stress-free environment away from the town and positioned within an estate of 80.000m2. Located at just ten minutes’ drive from Tarifa and Bolonia’s famous beaches and contained within electric gates and a forty palm-tree-lined front drive, these properties remains  private and secure.

The two courtyard cottages sit next door to one another and work best when rented together. They make for an ideal holiday with friends or a large family, as they share the long 40m2 shaded terrace, that said they also work fine rented independently as they are completely self sufficient with their own kitchen.  The cottages can be found within the main courtyard of the property, mature and tropical; they are decorated in an elegant, rustic and colonial style. 

Both units sleep four, and up to five people, in two bedrooms with a shared bathroom. In Courtyard Cottage I the master bedroom has plenty of room for an additional bed behind the sofa and armchairs and in the Cottage II there is a bunk room with a trundle bed that pulls out for the fifth person. Both apartments have a bathroom with bath, decorated with letters that spell the names of Spanish birds – the decoration is always considered and stylish. 

Parking for these two cottages is in the second courtyard behind the properties, Cottage I can access the parking through the kitchen door, otherwise access is through the main courtyard.  The swimming pool is located off this main courtyard in the old orange grove and secured with a gate, giving peace of mind to families that are travelling with young children. In the stable courtyard there is a delightful treehouse with a homemade snakes and ladders set and behind this third courtyard is the tennis court. 

Other notable features are the orange grove with table tennis table, a sand pit, stunning mature gardens and more wild, untamed fields that lead to idyllic streams. Plenty of animals; horses to groom, glorious walks close to the house that have direct access to Tarifa’s Natural Parks this is a truly a very special property.

Guest Reviews

“Our stay here was if we were in a tropical dream. We love the Mediterranean feeling and the history in the house. Every corner is a story in itself and there are a lot of corners. We were overwhelmed by the vegetation, the beautiful flowers, the cute table decorations, the pool and so many other things.”

“It’s a perfect destination for beach and relaxation, but close to many fun day trips as well. Over the years the beach has gotten very crowded with wind surfers but there are beaches not far from the villa that are mostly swimmers and sunbathers. The accommodation itself is just perfect. The owners are lovely, the cook is amazing and the rooms are all beautiful. There is a lovely pool, horses, tennis and the town of Tarifa is a 10 minute drive and full of fun bars and restaurants, but you may never want to leave.”

“We went during the summer and were able to relax, book yoga classes, play tennis and get massages, all in the same place - the pool was perfect! The beaches are only a five minute drive away. It's the perfect place for family or friend outings, and it's also perfect for getting inspired by nature and writing a great book! I hope you enjoy it.”

“We had a wonderful time at this villa, which was very well decorated and impeccably clean. Our children loved the freedom of the place - there are horses to visit in the stables, a treehouse to play in, and a huge garden. It made our vacation very relaxing as they are entertained very happily! We came in November, which was really lovely in Tarifa - very quiet, very nice weather, and when we went out for a walk on the beach we had the whole place to ourselves! The owners were fantastic hosts. I hope to come back soon!”
