Golfers? We’re tee’d-up to help you
Stunning local nature & wildlife: Ideal for walking, cycling, painting or just relaxing, the area is set in acres of Pine woodland & boasts stunning local scenery, nature, birds & wildlife (90% protected no-build area prevents over-development) next to the Donana National Park - one of the last great wildernesses of Europe & home to flamingos & the rare Iberian Lynx. The beautiful mountains of Andalucia are also nearby. In addition to Nuevo Portil's peaceful, chilled-out atmosphere, on its doorstep is the wonderfully tranquil village of El Rompido with a newly-built marina and multiple fine fish restaurants. The nearest large town is Huelva, 20kms away, hosting many fine shops, historical sites & familiar Spanish cobbled squares & walkways.
*Unlike many of the other ‘Costas’ that are swamped by foreigners, Costa de la Luz is swamped instead with an abundance of blue flag beaches, golf courses and 90% protected countryside. It is one of the Spaniards’ best kept secrets – they all love to go there on holiday themselves!
Activities & Eating Out: Nuevo Portil is on a 120km stretch of uninterrupted golden beaches, for which Huelva has been awarded the European Blue Flag for many years due to their variety, quality and beautiful natural surroundings.
In addition to 'sight-seeing' the area also offers some fantastic golf courses, or for the more adventurous, fun activities such as kite-surfing, go-carting, a water-park, horse riding, a wide array of water sports and cultural activites such as local 'ferias'. There are also many new cycle paths developed through the local forests.
...If this all may prove a little too much, it is still an ideal place to just come and relax..! The garden & sun terraces benefit from sun all day long and into the evening.
The swimming pools (adult & toddler pools, with lifeguard) is only 20m from the front door, but far enough away that its noise won't disturb you.
Padel tennis courts (Spanish game - cross between tennis & squash, entertaining to watch & even more fun to play!) are sunk down into the ground at the rear of the property as well as a large grassy lawn, shaded with trees.
Highly recommend is the local cuisine & wonderful wines at the excellent seafood restaurants, tapas & beach bars nearby. There are a number of restaurants in the area within walking distance, but even more by car (within a 10 min drive there are about another 20 places situated around the villages of El Portil, El Rompido and along all the beaches).
Night Life, Weather & Group Bookings: There are great local bars & watering holes (as in any traditional Spanish coastal village), but if you really want to paint the tiles, nearby Huelva is cracking for the night life! It’s far enough away that it doesn't disturb the local tranquility, yet is only a short ride in a cab & it tends to be extremely busy at the weekends especially. The Spaniards keep the clubs open & rocking until 8am including a fantastic one in an old castle…
…or you might prefer to stay ‘close to home’ to watch sport in the local Sports Bar.
With 300 days sunshine a year in the Costa de La Luz, it’s hot practically all year round, rarely dropping below 20C even in winter (check out http://news.bbc.co.uk/weather/forecast/2404).
Enjoy your lunch outside on one of the three patios / sun terraces…
