Nuevo Portil House Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 6 & baby, south facing garden & terraces, close to bars & restaurants

Brisa del Mar is a 3 storey townhouse located on Hole 14 (Hoyo 14) of Nuevo Portil golf course. It has 1 double bedroom & en suite bathroom, 2 twin bedrooms, shower room & ground floor cloakroom. The kitchen has granite worktops, crockery & cutlery for 12 & all the utensils you would expect to use. The lounge has 2 leather sofas, 32” TV with most English freeview satellite channels, iPod docking, books, games & wood burning stove. Each bedroom has ample storage, hairdryer, mirror, chair, 2 towels per guest & percale cotton bed linen. The garden is south facing with table & chairs for 6 & a large parasol; 2 private terraces with sun loungers, cushions, table & parasol; a sea view. Also included are beach loungers, 2 bicycles & secure parking. There is a large swimming pool & toddler pool (seasonal) with lifeguard. The fabulous beach, bars & restaurants are less than 10 mins walk. Other local activities include bird watching, water sports, horse riding, karting and a seasonal water park.

General Golf Information: Compared to the Western Algarve and the Costa del Sol, golfing opportunities on the Costa de la Luz are as yet relatively undiscovered. Green fees are considerably lower and the courses less crowded, making it much easier to get a start time that you want and play a round in reasonable time. Most Golf courses in the area have practice facilities where you are able to hire balls to loosen up. You can play in both Spain and Portugal and all are very easy to get to and give a wide range of different course to satisfy all tastes. Please be aware that most Spanish and Portuguese courses require soft spikes. Buggies and trolleys are usually available for hire.

Local courses: Nuevo Portil: This course winds through the houses and pine trees in Nuevo Portil. It offers a pleasant walk that isn't too tiring and is a good test of golf for all levels of player. The 11th hole is worth a mention it is a par 5 with a small lake in the front right.

El Rompido (North & South): Less than 10 mins drive away finds these 2 spectacular championship courses set amongst pines, olive trees & marshland. Both courses are a very good test of golf especially if the sea breeze picks up. Look out for the marsh crabs underneath the bridge crossing the marsh on the South course. The south course has hosted a number of professional events and has also been used for the final of the Daily Mail foursomes.

Bellavista (Duhesa golf):

The is the oldest members club in Spain (founded 1916) Bellavista is a true members club in the British style. More undulating than many in the coastal area and a challenge for most golfers, the course belies its par of just 70.


This 27 hole course staged the 1996 Turespana Open and provides 3 challenging loops of 9 holes. The course varies from tight tree lined fairways with small, fast greens, to open views of the Huelva coastline with challenging shots over water to target greens. The course meanders through the pine trees and will lead you to believe you are the only golfers there. Some of the holes are lined with accommodation and with a large slice your ball could visit a swimming pool, mine did. The course is easy to find and is about 20 minutes drive away from Brisa del Mar.

Isla Canela: Although relatively new, the course has been integrated with surrounding coastal features; winding through an area of tidal salt marsh. It is largely flat, so will provide a leisurely walk for those who prefer not to slog up hill and down dale, yet also provides an enjoyable golfing challenge. The course is easy to find and is about 25 minutes drive away from Brisa del Mar.

About The Chadwicks

Alan and Jacky Chadwick live just north of Bristol and have strong roots with the West country and also with Swansea. Alan is partially retired but Jacky keeps him busy while she is at work as an HR Manager in Bristol. When they are not in Spain or working, they can be found playing golf at Chipping Sodbury golf club.

The Chadwicks purchased this house in 2007

Why The Chadwicks chose Nuevo Portil

We had been looking for a holiday home across Europe for some time but most places were too small or too far from the beach, golf and restaurants. We also wanted to avoid the overcrowded 'lego land' developments that can be found on some of the more well known Costas.

A chance find on the internet led us to this unspoilt and traditionally Spanish area which ticked all the boxes plus some.

It's rare now to find an affordable house with good size bedrooms and garden space that is genuinely walking distance from the beach and golf - but we have managed it and we love it.

We always planned to rent the house when we weren't able to be there and felt that this would be a fantastic place for all sorts of groups to enjoy.

What makes this house unique

The drive to the property is alongside the sea and the views are stunning; we were nearly sold on that alone.

When we realised we could see the see from the top terrace plus had year round sunshine in the south facing garden plus a pergola for my bourgainvilla - we had to have it.

Most of the bars and restaurants are Spanish giving a real experience of local food and tradition. No English breakfasts or fish and chip shops here.

So, if like us, you want a fantastic beach, bars, restaurants and golf all within easy walking distance and still experience the unique friendly culture of the Spanish, this is the area for you.

Great house in a great location

  • 5 of 5
Dad loved – being able to walk to golf and the sea fishing so no hassle over who gets the car; price of golf at only €25 so I played three times; golf clubs available from the owners so no extra luggage to pay for at the airport

Mum loved – a real kitchen with ‘proper’ equipment; a private balcony so I could sunbathe without people looking at my wobbly bits; space to read in peace away from the kids; good selection of books there when I ran out

Kate (aged 17) loved – my own balcony and space away from the parents (!); decent hairdryer and mirror etc; being able to walk to the beach without having to get someone to drive me there; karting

Chloe (aged 12) loved – the ice cream shop; playing padel tennis (and I beat Kate once); the swimming pool; the waterpark

Ticks all the boxes. We will be back. Thank you Alan and Jacky.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We're glad you enjoyed your stay. Having two sunny and private terraces in addition to the garden does give plenty of options for peace and quiet.

We also have golf pull trolleys available to hire with the clubs if needed - big saving on golf course hire rates.

Beware - the padel tennis is addictive!

A home from home for everyone

  • 5 of 5
We returned to the property after a gap of three years. fortunately standards had not slipped and we found a beautifully clean villa with every need catered for. Did we miss wifi,our son and daughter maybe, same with sky but did it spoil the holiday, no way.We had a wonderful stay and will certainly return soon.

Owner's Response: Great to welcome you back and a big thank you for writing this review.

We are considering whether to install wifi for next year although some guests have given us feedback saying that they were pleased to 'switch off' on holiday. For those who haven't been to the area, wifi is readily available at the local bars for free with a drink (a beer or coffee are about €1) - the nearest bar with wifi is only 5 minutes walk away.

The removal of the central Sky satellite has unfortunately left all homes on this coastline without any main UK TV channels (BBC, ITV, C4 etc) but as we have our own satellite dish we still receive over 40 Engligh speaking channels for TV addicts or cooler winter evenings indoors. There is also a DVD player and a number of DVDs if you get bored.

We're glad that our guests found that our standards are still as high as before. We spend several weeks a year refreshing the property inside and out to ensure that we provide the best facilities and products that we can. We hope to welcome you back again soon.

A very well-equipped, comfortable home from home

  • 5 of 5
A very relaxing environment with all guest needs anticipated and catered for. It is the thoughtful little touches like plenty of pillows, optional duvet ratings and the like which make a big difference between acceptable and extra comfortable holiday accommodation. The reasonably priced golf club and trolley hire was a welcome bonus, and we enjoyed several rounds of golf on the well maintained and landscaped course which surrounds the housing development. The owners have provided a useful information booklet along with supporting material such as maps,guides and phrase books which cannot be faulted for detail and usefulness. We sampled tapas and delicious fish and chicken dishes at but a few of the plethora of bars and restaurants within a short walk of the holiday home. Jacky and Alan provide helpful recommendations in their boklet for everything from shopping to eating out to daytrips to golf courses.

We will definitely visit again, a very good value holiday which we thoroughly recommend to others.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your kind comments. We aim to provide our guests with those little extras that we enjoy when we travel too that make the stay more comfortable. Hiring golf clubs and trolleys from us saves a considerable sum in aircraft carriage costs and means that you don't have to try to squeeze your clubs into the car with you suitcases.

We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Even better than we remembered from 2008

  • 5 of 5
We don’t usually return to the same place on holiday (as there are so many new places to try out) but sometimes DIY holidays can be hard to organise and a bit of a gamble especially if travelling with small children. This year we were taking our young grandchildren on holiday for the first time and wanted somewhere we could trust to deliver as promised on the website and would be easy to organise so we decided to return to Brisa del Mar. It didn’t disappoint!

When we stayed in 2008, the house had just been finished and everything was brand new so we expected to see some evidence of wear and tear this time. However, Alan and Jacky have obviously been busy each year and the house is still beautifully maintained from the décor to the soft furnishings and linen.

We haven’t travelled abroad with toddlers before so having a high chair, travel cot (with optional mosquito net) plus stair gates already there were a Godsend. The kitchen really does have everything you would expect at home including things like a hand blender – ideal for the baby’s food – and enabled us to cater for the more particular food preferences that British kids seem to have these days!

The kids soon found the box of outdoor beach toys in the cupboard which saved us a fortune as we expected to have to buy these things locally. We also discovered a bargain mega store which had everything you might need or have forgotten and bought a paddling pool for the garden for just €5 – great when we couldn’t be bothered to leave the comfort of the house to go to the communal pool just a few yards away. We put the beach parasol and beach chairs provided to good use too.

The set up that Alan and Jacky have in place is well thought through and should cover all realistic needs of a family on holiday. Their reservation process, payment system and key management is professional but still with the personal touch. We are really glad that we returned to this holiday home and, dare we say it, we may even return for a third time!

Fantastic Holiday

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic holiday at Brisa del Mar. The directions to the property were spot on which made for a stress free journey and the townhouse was exactly as described. It had all the facilities that you would expect to find at home with a very well equipped kitchen which made cooking easy.
The surrounding area is beautiful with miles of uncrowded and unspoilt beaches. The closest is about a 10-15 min walk from Brisa del Mar, but our favourite was the one opposite the hotel where you could catch a ferry to the La Flecha (well worth the trip).
We had two 18 year olds with us and were worried that they might be bored, but they had a great time and as the area is so safe we had no worries about them staying out until the small hours.
You will need to use your phrase book as this is a mainly Spanish area ( a real bonus for us - not a Full English Breakfast sign in sight), but everyone is really patient and friendly. We found that sign language and big smiles went a long way!
I definitely recommend and hope to be going back again next year

Owner's Response: Many thanks for such a kind review.
We hope you found the English / Spanish dictionaries and phrase books in the house helpful in the smaller restaurants.
And yes, if loaded up with beach chairs, sun parasols and cool boxes, it can take a few minutes more than the usual 10 minutes to get to the beach!
We would be delighted to welcome you all back again. Thank you.

a fabulous return to El Portil

  • 5 of 5
We have vacationed on this complex for 3 years running but this year was the first time we had used the Chadwicks accomodation. We will certainly be considering returning next year and would have no hesitation in recommending their home to anyone else thinking of discovering this wonderful part of Spain. It is by far the best villa we have stayed on on the complex.Their home is exactly that, a home from home, with every conceviable convenience available. It is beautifully maintained and spotlessly clean and benefits from having hosts that cannot seem to do enough to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
We love the area, very unspoilt by british tourism, you need your phrase book as there are no English Pubs and Restaurants here, thank goodness. It is a perfect venue for families and couples alike but you do need a car.

Costa de la Luz is one of Spain's best kept secrets with miles of unspoilt blue ribbon beaches backed with pine forests & sand dunes. Water sports are popular and south west facing coast provides fabulous sunsets. Other activities nearby include birdwatching at the local lake & nature reserve, horse riding, racing at the karting circuit or cooling down in the summer at the water park. For some true Spanish culture and architecture, visit some of the many small towns and villages or spend a day in Seville. Other excursions include boats trip us the river guardiana between Spain & Portugal, the Rio Tinto Mining Museum or a foot ferry to the sand spit (La Flecha) opposite Nuevo Portil.

For golfers there are many excellent courses within an hours easy drive for players of all abilities. Green fees are often half the prices found in Portugal and courses are much quieter.

This is a fabulous area for families & couples seeking lovely beaches, golf or just some relaxing sunshine.

Other Activities: Bird watching, karting, water park (seasonal)

Golf: Costa Esuri: Two courses West and East. The West is a long course but easy walking with some stunning views of the bridge linking Spain and Portugal over the Guadiana river and the natural marshland. It is a riverside parkland course with a real links feel. It is intended that it will host tour events but the fairways are wide and fair. The East is designed with holiday golf in mind with seven lakes. Despite being on a large development the courses have a very natural feel to them.

Dunas de Doñana: Dunas de Doñana Golf Club is located at the southern end of one of the most important national parks in Europe, La Cota de Doñana, and close to the Atlantic Ocean. This location provides a real golfing gem with challenging holes well protected in many cases with water and bunkering.
