Surfer's Cottage

Nr. Facinas, Tarifa

“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.”

Surfer’s Cottage

Ideal for a family looking for a special place to stay with a pool.

Property Description

This very special Spanish Farmhouse offers a relaxing, enjoyable and stress-free environment at just ten minutes’ drive from Tarifa’s famous beaches. The electric gates ensure absolute privacy during your stay. An avenue of forty palms leads to the main entrance, which opens into a beautiful shaded courtyard with tropical planting and swaying palms. A long wisteria covered terrace opens onto the lawned swimming pool area, set in an old orange orchard which is fenced and gated. This pool is an idyllic temperature during the summer months. Wooden sun beds are in the pool area and this long shaded terrace provides the ideal spot for lunch.

This accommodation for up to five people is wonderfully quirky, decorated with real flare with original pieces and marine antiques. For 2020 there is a second bedroom, which can sleep three people and a spacious covered terrace for dining and wiling the afternoon away with a good book.  

The cottage can be accessed via the delightful Spanish cobbled courtyard that houses the horse trap, two of the owner’s friendly mares and a magical wooden tree house. Alternatively it can be reached through the new terrace with private parking literally outside.  There is everything one could possibly need for your Mediterranean holiday in style… 

The kitchen is well equipped and there is a farmhouse style solid wooden table, sitting room with plenty of space, a stylish red pot belly stove for the winter months. The bathroom is on the ground floor and one has to access the twin bedroom either from outside or passing through the bathroom. The twin room is painted in a bold turquoise and decorated with vintage accessories, but the highlight is without a doubt the windows which quite often might have two horses looking through. For animal loving children this property is truly a heavenly choice. The master bedroom is up a flight of stairs. 

The surfer’s cottage has shared use of the swimming pool, astro turf tennis court, stunning mature gardens and various terraces scattered throughout the property. The property can also be rented as a whole with accommodation for up to 12 guests please see Farmhouse Tarifa Sleeps 12 and is a fabulous option for an event or special occasion.

Guest Reviews

“The epitome of casual chic – orange groves, peace and quiet and eagles soaring.”

“The place is simply breathtaking, a truly romantic and idyllic setting from all points of view and from the moment you arrive at the gates you know you are in for something special, and it does not disappoint. ”

“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 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!”
