About Charlotte McManus
We are a family of five who holiday every year at this apartment if it is free. Our 3 children have loved every minute of the complex and area.
Charlotte McManus purchased this Apartment in 2004
Why Charlotte McManus chose Los Gallos-Cerromolino
Our apartment is in such a prime location, shops, restaurants and the beautiful La Barrosa beach are all within a few minutes walk. From lazy pool days to body boarding beach days right through to kayaking and water sports, La Barrosa has it all. Uncrowded, unspoilt and full of culture, Costa de la Luz is a true gem.
What makes this Apartment unique
less than 5 minutes walk to the beach. English speaking support and assistance on call if needed.

The apartment is part of a beautiful low-rise complex around a huge shared pool. There is also a pleasant cafe and sports courts on site and the whole place was very friendly and full of the most beautiful trees and flowers. It all felt very Spanish. The complex itself is only a few minutes walk from the fabulous beaches and many varied restaurants, shops and little markets. It is obviously a holiday place but feels very friendly and inclusive. Everywhere, including the many public WCs, was spotlessly clean. Few locals speak much English but many menus have translations and although we don't speak Spanish, we didn't find it to be a problem. The apartment itself is pleasant and well equipped. There are fans provided that we were very glad of at night and it was lovely to have a place to sit outside in the evenings. It proved an excellent base for exploring this most beautiful of locations.
We had a wonderful week in this lovely apartment which is in the most fabulous location.
Just a few minutes walk to the beach and perfectly located for trips to Cadiz
Thank you so much. We're delighted that you had such a great time.
In a really perfect spot for walking to the beach and enjoying the many bars and restaurants. I was holidaying alone and found the apartment secure, comfortable and well equipped. It all felt very Spanish as I was there in mid-May so it was quiet but lively at the weekend.
Chiclana town is a must and the walks along the beach are just lovely. Further afield is really not that far for anyone wanting to visit more of the coast or inland. A thoroughly enjoyable stay.
A quiet corner of real Spain
This is a lovely apartment in a very quiet and secure area only minutes walk from a fantastic beach. There are lots of restaurants and bars in easy walking distance but out of season (as we were ) not all are open. It is a much more "Spanish" part of the Costas which we loved. The apartment is very well equipped with a big patio area for eating or just relaxing. To visit most of the places of interest you need a car but we loved Cadiz, Sanlucar and the stunning coastline.
Needs to be updated
Nice place, nice village. Good, but quite expensive for what it is actually offered.
