Why Catherine Guiver chose Costa de la Luz

Our house is located on a quiet lane and reached from through the pine woods from El Colorado but at the same time is only 10 minutes from the motorway giving easy access to the white towns of Vejer and Medina Sidonia as well as beautiful cities and towns like Jerez, Cadiz and Seville.

We chose our house with family holidays in mind. The lovely curved walls make it just that bit different, the open feel of the living area with light coming in from all angles and a cool breeze that blows through because of the french doors at either side of the house make it a very relaxing place to be during the summer.

Outside, the garden is:

- perfect for children with large lawns suitable for football, babinton or just running around

- has a large pool with safe shallow end and plenty of space for swimming and games

- a shaded terrace with a table that comfortably sits 10 for long lunches or dinners with family and friends

- private and safe with gates opening onto a quiet lane and hedged borders

The Beaches: We're

- 10 minutes from the cove of Cala del Aceite

- 15 minutes from the perfect waves and surfing of El Palmer

- 20 minutes from the laid-back vibe of the Zahora beaches

- 20 minutes from Novo Sancti Petri and Barossa

Conil:

Our local town (10 minutes) is the very Spanish seaside town of Conil with family restaurants and ice cream shops but plenty of nightlife too and of course an amazing beach. Conil now has a number of supermarkets where it is easy to buy fresh milk, cereal and other British favourites as well as a huge range of Spanish specialities like local tuna, fish and amazing Spanish meats.

Guestbook comments from the owner

'Another really good point was the showers. So often when

you go away the showers are hopeless, but these were particularly good and always hot.' Carol, August 2009



'We had such a great time and are considering next year already...The house is very spacious and so cool during the day , the beds are really comfortable and it was very well equipped. What a variety of beaches!' Kerry, August 2010



'Thanks again for making everything so easy for us during our stay at Casa Curvada. The house was a great size for us and the boys made the most of the large garden for football in the evenings, after enjoying the pool most of each day. ...it exceeded all our expectations and we had a wonderful stay.' Ruth, June 2011



'It exceeded what we expected in a house, comfortable beds, lovely pool and great garden for the children. Local area had fabulous beaches, great surfing, and lovely old towns to visit. Far preferable, in every way, to the Spanish Mediterranean coast.' William, April 2014

A perfect villa for a relaxing Spanish holiday

  • 5 of 5

The villa is a very nice property and unusual with its curved walls. Very comfortable with everything you need inside and an exceptional outside space with an enclosed garden incorporating a pool and sunbathing area with a barbecue and more shaded area also for when the sun becomes too much!

You will need a car as there is nothing much within walking distance but 3 supermarkets within close proximity so an excellent place to stay once stocked up if you happy to just chill.

We visited Cadiz, Jerez, Vejer, Cabot de Trafalgar and of course Conil very easily by car (would have been difficult in Jerez without GPS!) and spent lots of time just chilling by the pool in the sun. We not beach people but there are loads of beaches both busy and more remote within easy driving distance.

Great checking in procedure with Katherina and partner who explain everything and are available during your stay if necessary.

Loved our stay and would definitely recommend

Excellent stay at Casa Curvada!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Curvada was absolutely brilliant. We loved our stay so much, that for the first time ever, we would actually visit the same place twice. The villa itself is very private, and secure, with no one overlooking.

The pool was clean anyway, but was cleaned again half-way through our stay. The layout of the villa makes you feel like there is plenty of space, and allows for a sociable atmosphere if you are staying with family and/or friends. All bedrooms were a good size, the 2 bathrooms were well maintained, and the entire property was very clean.

The nearest town, Conil, is approximately a 10-minute drive away, and offers all local amenities, and much more. Excellent beaches, restaurants and shops. Great location for other towns such as Vejer de la Frontera and Cadiz, which are both musts!

Wonderful holiday had by 3 generations of family in a comfortable villa with a large garden and pool

  • 5 of 5

The villa was very clean, comfortable, spacious and well-equipped for our party of seven (with ages ranging from 5 to 80+ years!) The large, lawned garden was completely private and not over-looked. The pool did not need to be heated as it was south facing and warmed by the sun. There were parasols, and an outside covered dining area to the side of the property provided shade when required.

A car is essential but the villa is only about 10 minutes easy drive into the lovely town of Conil with it's characterful streets, numerous restaurants, enormous white sandy beach and several supermarkets. Nearer still is the delightful sheltered bay of Cala del Aceite (only about 5 minutes drive) with it's gentle waves ideal for younger children and nice beach restaurant.

From the villa it was easy to access this beautiful, unspoilt part of Spain. Historic Cadiz is only 30 minutes drive and well worth a visit. The hill-top town of Vejer is wonderful (although with steep narrow streets and many steps not ideal for those with walking difficulties). To the south is the lovely town of Tarifa with it's more cosmopolitan feel and plentiful bars and restaurants.

Our whole family had a wonderful holiday - the villa and the area had much to suit all ages and I would be very happy to return and to recommend it to others..

Excellent property. Perfect for a family or group of people. Excellent outdoor space and pool

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the property in April 2017. The house is located just outside Conil which is an ideal base from which to travel north to Cadiz (which is a must visit, particularly the market) and Jerez and south to Tarifa and the excellent beaches all the way along the coast. The road network in the area is very good and it is easy to get around by car.

The house is attractive, very well equipped if you wish to self cater, has large open plan internal space and a large garden for outside dining and a good size pool.

The beaches are right on the doorstep and Conil has all of the facilities which any tourist would require and a multitude of restaurants.

The house is only 15 minutes from the beautiful hill top town of Vejer andvits many excellent places to eat

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the house and will definitely return very soon

Comfortable, spacious and perfectly located

  • 5 of 5

This has been our fourth holiday at Casa Curvada. We liked it so much we stayed for a month a few years ago.

The owners and their caretakers are charming and helpful, the house is spacious and comfortable.

5 minutes/20 minutes walk drive from Cala de Aceite ( a lovely cove with a great friendly restaurant/cafe) and 5 mins drive from Conil - the house is perfectly placed to explore the multitude of beaches up and down the coast.

Easily visit Barbate, Trafalgar, Canos de Meca, Zahora etc etc and north up to Roche and Chiclana. The seafood in the beach side restaurants is amazing and the people welcoming. A day trip to Jerez is easy ( half hour drive) Cadiz likewise. You can venture inland to the stunning hill towns like Vejer.

There is so much to do and see but it is equally as nice just hanging around at the house and pool. It never feels crowded even with 8/9 noisy people in staying there.

Perfect house for families.

Stunning property

  • 4 of 5

Had an excellent stay at Casa Curvada. The property was spacious, clean and well maintained.

The facilities available were great - there was 8 of us and we made use of everything.

Loved the gardens, pool and the covered eating area off the kitchen.

Visited some gorgeous beaches in the area and some very nice restaurants - one of which the owner recommended 'Pizza in the woods'!

We had a great weeks stay.Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Both have supermarkets, banks and pharmacists as well as cafes, bars and restaurants of all kinds, including tapas, pizzas and traditional Andalucian fish restaurants. The excellent Cabo Roche rstaurant serves wonderful fish and paella and is only 3 minutes drive from the house on the way to the beach.

Local towns: In summer Conil is a lively family resort bustling with street entertainers, markets and outdoor restaurants and cafes. Vejer, a little further up the road is one of Andalucia's prettiest hilltowns. It enjoys wonderful panoramic views and its winding lanes are bursting with interesting shops and highly recommended restaurants and cafes.
