About Ms Gale Vincent

The Villa is my haven away from it all and often a time when the whole family get together under one roof as its large enough for all of us.. When I'm not lying at the pool or walking on the beach or being creative in the kitchen, I hang out with the wonderful friends I have made in Zahara or walk along the beaches. I love the friendly local culture and I get to practise my Spanish too. I also love making Las Rocas a wonderful place to be for my guests. I never thought I could share this special place but I have had so much pleasure over the years from the wonderful feedback and knowing that the people who stay love the privacy, luxury, space and comfort it provides. I do my best to make it an easy, beautiful and enjoyable place to be. Curro and Victoria are the stars who take care of the guests and they do it with love and respect. They are shining examples of nothing is too much trouble. So I count myself very lucky to have and to share this magnificent space with all who come here and to have the support of the team who work with me to do that. Whilst you are staying at the villa I may be in my home town of Cape Town, or in Surrey in the UK where I now live or travelling just like you.

Ms Gale Vincent purchased this villa in 2003

Why Ms Gale Vincent chose Zahara de los Atunes

We came on holiday in an area unfamiliar to us and heard that it was an unspoilt part of the Spanish coast. We thought we might purchase a holiday apartment whilst we were there and left 10 days later with an absolute jewel. It was this most incredible 360deg view that clinched it. The house at the time needed a lot of work so it was a great opportunity create a magnificent holiday home .... a far cry from a little holiday apartment ! We simply fell in love with it.

What makes this villa unique

We realised that :as Rocas could accommodate our large extended families or we could have a large group of friends or run a workshop making all of the dreams we had possible. I love it because it spreads over 3 floors providing privacy and 'space' for all. The gardens are tranquil too and there are so many areas to hide, chill, read a book or play. I feel like Queen in her castle high above the world with the miracle of also being able to listen to the birdsong in the quiet of the day or the waves on the beach as I drift off to sleep at night. Im so glad that this property is not right on the beach because at times the energy from the sea can be overwhelming, the people on the beach invasive and we would never have the luxury of the breathtaking views we have. Its heavenly.

I CAN ALSO OFFER NEIGHBOURS VILLAS FOR LARGER GROUPS OR DATES I DONT HAVE AVAILABLE

Guestbook comments from the manager

Everyone enjoyed the holiday thanks and had a great time at the villa. The property is as advertised, but you’ve clearly spent money on the bathrooms and kitchen plus, I was told, the floors and it shows well. We all enjoyed the panoramic views and found the place very quiet and free from noise .



In the first week there was a gentle breeze which made staying outdoors very pleasant, certainly noticeably cooler than other parts of Spain which is good. .



The staff were excellent and we couldn’t praise them highly enough. They keep the villa, pool and gardens in great shape and are both pleasant and willing to help in any way.



We were obliged to go in August because of the school holidays, but Spain certainly de-camps to the beaches during that month. I imagine the area is considerably quieter at other times of the year.



Overall, we had a great time and would recommend your villa whole-heartedly.



Regards

las rocas was exactly what we was looking for

  • 4 of 5
As a group of 12 kiters this villa was great for us a little out of the way but that added to it, we think. close by for so many attractions, views was amazing and best way to wake up to eat breakfast looking out across to morocco. Weather wasn't great but open fire made it not a problem for cosy evenings sat around.

Great Villa in a great location.

  • 5 of 5
Very nice villa with impressive views of the Gibraltar Strait, on clear days you can see the coast of Africa. Well furnished accommodations. Pool is a big plus after a long day at the beach. Great vews of the close by beach Los Alemanes, crystal clear water and beautiful setting.
The property owner, Gale, was most helpful setting up online payment thru VRBO for us. Curro, the housekeeper was fantastic, very helpful and resourceful.
Overall we had a great experience renting this Villa. The only complaint is the road up to the house, and the entrance thru the gates, if you have a large vehicle you might have issues getting in and out but it won't be a problem for most full size sedans.
I would definitely recommend this Villa to my friends and anybody wishing to have a great time in one of the few remaining pristine coastal areas in Europe. You might want to check out the local restaurants for fresh bluefin tuna at the end of June, it is caught the traditional way (same way the Romans did 2000 years ago) right in front of the house, and it is the highest grade tuna you can find, try the Sarda in Barbate's restaurant El Mirador, simply excellent.

Great place with breathtaking views of the strait.

  • 5 of 5
Very nice house with impressive views, on clear days you can see the coast of Africa. The pool feels great after a day at the beach. The closest beach Los Alemanes and specially Bolonia are highly recommended. Los Alemanes beach can be seen from the house.
The house caretaker, Curro, was great and made sure we felt right at home.
The only issue was the road up to the house, it is poorly paved and very curvy, access to the house parking thru the front gate is pretty tight if you have a big vehicle. Great places to eat nearby, you must try the Sarda at the Mirador in Barbate.
Thank you Gale for sharing such a great place with us.

We stayed at Las Rocas in Sept 2011 with our family as we had our wedding in Zahara.

The villa is simply stunning and has a vast amount of seating area's so even though we had 12+ people there at any one time you could have some quite time alone.

The care takers (husband and wife) are on hand day and night if you need ANYTHING ! I cannot recommend it enough.

Great holiday had by all and fantastic attention to detail by the owners!

We will be going again!

CALENDAR: PLEASE ENQUIRE ABOUT DATES AS I DONT ALWAYS UPDATE MY CALENDAR AND I HAVE OTHER LARGE VILLAS

From the commanding position at the top of the headland where there are breathtaking 360 deg views sits Villa Las Rocas. Walk directly from the villa into the surrounding countryside to birdwatch and appreciating nature , visit an ancient Roman city of ruins or trundle down to the long unspoilt beaches to enjoy the warm ocean. The villages close by offer a range of restaurants tempting you with local and international cuisine, quaint shops and traditional Spanish white villages. In May and June the fisherman in their trawlers can be seen harvesting their catch from the Almadraba in front of the villa and the fresh fish is quickly available locally. Whale watching, kite surfing, fishing and horse riding are popular attractions, besides flamenco, salsa and the sherry bodegas of Jerez. Or for a day out why not take a 35minute ferry across to Tangier in Morocco? Just over an hour away are Gibraltar or Jerez with airports and just a little further Sevilla and Malaga and then Granada.

Other Activities: Kite surfing
