About the property

1 bedroom cottage sleeping 2 people

For some years now the Costa de la Luz has been courted by the travel scene as the place 'to go'. The natural beauty, unspoilt beaches, watersports and Andalucian charm are just a few reasons to come and visit. Casita Las Terrazas presides in the hills, over looking a truly remarkable view to Africa. Ten minutes to cosmopolitan Tarifa and the incredible beaches or ten minutes in the opposite direction to the fantastic daily market of Algeciras. The casita is set in the large grounds made up of 7 terraces, which once used to be a market garden. Weave between shaded corks, flower beds and a natural space rich in birdsong and fauna. Palms tower high, and the mature gardens provide a special ambiance to get that element we all need to relax on holiday.

Good weather turns inside living outside and you'll find the large outside terrace becomes the hub for BBQs, hammock life, and simply soaking up the sun whilst absorbed with the beauty of the mountain range across the Gibraltar Straits. The deep pool provides a wind free way to cool off and the mature gardens offer space and peace from the outside world.

Your comfort is well set up with a large double bed (zip bed converts to 2 singles), a basic but well equipped galley kitchen, shower/ compact bath, simple and comfortable furnishings.

Great location and setting!

  • 5 of 5

Brilliant location and a well-equipped casita with stunning views over the Straits of Gibraltar. Friendly and helpful hosts that made you feel really welcome. Only 2 (small) downsides - the local dogs bark alot during the night and some of the paths are are little uneven - but that won't spoil your stay! Tarifa is a great little place to explore only 10km away. Enjoy! We did!!!!😎👍

Very well cared-for, a great get-away spot for two.

  • 5 of 5

Spent a great week there, scenic views over the Strait of Gibraltar, and the large grounds are gorgeous. We enjoyed the settee on the front landing for sitting out and relaxing, and had our meals out there as well. The casita is comfortable and well looked after. The owners (Amy and Alistair) were welcoming and attentive. Tarifa is quite close, for groceries, and the beaches along the Costa del Luz are much more natural (and uncrowded) than the Costa del Sol. A great base, away from the crowds, certainly hope to return again. E&H (Canada)

Great escape within reach of all the sights

  • 4 of 5

Thanks to Amy for such a lovely stay! Very relaxing and a beautiful location looking out to Morocco on a clear day. The dogs provided great entertainment. Loved the cool pool. Lush gardens and a very welcoming host. Felt totally relaxed here. Also close enough to get on the road and see the sights.

Simply lovely!

  • 5 of 5

This simple but lovely little casita is a great bolthole for two, perched on picturesque terraces above Pelayo and just 10 minutes from Tarifa and Algeciras. Anything the casita lacks in sophistication is more than made up for by the stunning views over the Straits of Gibraltar clear across to Morocco, by the private use of the spring fed pool on the terrace above and by the sheer rustic charm and thoughtfulness that have obviously gone into making the casita a little home from home. Add to this a warm welcome and general helpfulness (in our case above and beyond the call of duty) that we received from Amy and Alistair and you have the perfect recipe for a wonderful and relaxing holiday. Enjoy it - we did! T&J, Nottingham, June 2016.

Eine wunderbare Casita, in der man sich sofort wohl fühlt

  • 5 of 5

Die Unterkunft, der Pool und die gesamte Umgebung ist sehr sauber und gepflegt. Amy ist eine sehr freundliche Gastgeberin, die gute Tipps für die Gäste hat, wenn diese es wünschen. Uns hat es sehr gut gefallen und wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Der Ausblick von der Terrasse ist wunderschön. Einzig die vielen bellenden Hunde in der Nachbarschaft waren manchmal etwas störend. Wir empfehlen diese Unterkunft gerne weiter an Personen, die zur Entspannung kommen.
