La Peñita

Historic Old Town, Tarifa

“Lovely apartment decorated to the highest standard with lots of touches like fresh flowers, plants, very nice colours and very stylish. All new and in perfect condition. Kitchen perfect to cook in, lounge with a very comfy sofa, lovely bed and very quiet, spotless clean! The owner lives next door with her family and is a very warm, welcoming person. We enjoyed our stay a lot – and spent a lot of time in this lovely place – we did not even want to go out. Thanks a lot!”

REF: CA/VFT/003089
Ideal for couples or families with two children (not too small) looking for somewhere peaceful in the old town.

Property Description

A gorgeous house located at the top of the old town, bordering the castle walls, in a quiet and residential area. There is accommodation for two adults and two children and the possibility of coming with a larger group, as the owner has two more properties for rent in their charming little corner of Tarifa (please enquire for more information).

Fully renovated in 2016 by the stylish Spanish / French owners (who live next door) in a contemporary fashion; all the original arches and doors have been preserved and mixed in with clean, modern lines.

To get to the house one needs to go through the traditional Andalusian patio, which dates back to the XVII century, complete with years of lush vegetation. The bedroom and bathroom are on the ground floor, up stairs on the first floor is the well-equipped kitchen and sitting room, and on the second floor there is a second “snug” sitting room (that converts into a sofa bed for two children).

The roof terrace is on the second floor and enjoys magnificent views out over the town and castle walls and beyond to Africa, an ideal spot to wind down after a day on the water…

Guest Reviews

“We've spent some wonderful days in a place full of charm. The owners had the house prepared so that you don't need anything, very complete and with many details that make your stay more pleasant. They are also at your disposal to recommend a good beach or a good restaurant. A whole experience in the heart of Tarifa, you can reach all places of interest on foot. Not to mention the spectacular views from the sun loungers on the top floor terrace.”

“The whole house is new and perfectly equipped, with all the comforts. In addition it is central but without noise. The owners are charming, very friendly and attentive.”

“Lovely comfortable apartment just inside the old town, perfect for a couple. Very tastefully decorated and with a very comfortable bed (so important). The apartment is on three floors so not suitable for anyone with mobility issues. It has a rooftop terrace with two sunbeds and wonderful views overlooking the old town and the African coast. The owner is a wonderful hostess. Old Tarifa town is very unspoilt and obviously loved by the Spanish. There are plenty of tapas bars and restaurants in its narrow streets and squares. We’ve visited Spain many times and can honestly say we ate the best food ever in Tarifa and it was exceptional value. Highly recommended.”
