About the property

This light and airy Casita Pimenta has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms & a spacious open-plan sitting, kitchen & dining area at the heart of the property - ideal for an individual family or group of 6 (max 4 adults). At one end of the Casita, the double bedroom has a queen bed & an en-suite shower room, while at the other end the 2 twin bedrooms (the largest can become a king double) share a family bathroom.

The centre of the Casita is a large open-plan living area, perfect for families and friends to eat and socialise together. The well-stocked fully fitted kitchen/dining area has granite worktops, gas hob, electric oven, dishwasher, microwave and a large fridge/freezer - with a wooden farmhouse dining table comfortably seating six. For relaxing, there are two comfy sofas and a pouffe, WiFi, radio/CD, iPod docking station, UK/European (freeview) satellite TV & DVD, selection of board games, books and toy box for younger children - with a woodburner for the cooler nights between mid November to late March.

Two pairs of patio doors open onto a large West-facing natural stone patio with two sunbeds for relaxing and two round wrought iron chairs to curl up with a book - while a wooden table and six chairs sit under a tree trunk pergola shaded by climbers,perfect for a lazy breakfast or al fresco dining with the charcoal bbq. The private garden area wraps around three sides with lemon trees and colourful bouganvilla offering scent and colour year round - with a wooden swing seat is tucked under the pepper trees for a shady soothing retreat.

El Sueño is a relaxed & mellow retreat in a peaceful rural location, the antithesis to a managed holiday resort - where adults can sit back and relax in their own private space, while children run free to explore and meet new friends in acres of gardens. Welcoming guests for over 12 years (many who return more than once), Finca El Sueño is found in one of the most unspoilt areas of the Costa de la Luz, nestled into a secluded valley by the sea between the hilltop 'white village' of Vejer & the seaside towns of Zahara and Barbate. Tucked within organic laid-back grounds including a large Bees & Butterfly Herb Garden, Citrus Walk and a lake in the water meadows, there are just five individual country houses sleeping one to eight persons - offering guests a choice of individual accommodation for couples, families and friends as well as larger groups.

While our two bedroom Mimosa Casita is particularly suitable for those with mobility/wheelchair requirements, both our three bedroom Casitas are also popular as they are on a single level. The four Casitas (cottages), each named after the closest of the trees that surround them, all have their own private shaded patio & garden, sharing a swimming pool safely fenced for little ones & two play areas for children set in the central gardens - while the spacious and private Cortijo del Sueño (original farmhouse with Moorish origins) with four en-suite bedrooms has its own walled swimming pool, so perfect for families and friends to share or a base for larger groups.

Just minutes away are miles of glorious beaches, delicious restaurants & tapas bars to suit all tastes either in town, beside the sea or tucked in away in rural settings, along with a wealth of shops & markets, stunning nature reserves & a range of activities from wildlife tours, cycling, surfing, horseriding to whale watching for all ages. Dehesa Montenmedio just 500m away with its renowned NMAC art centre, acres of natural deer park, 18 hole golf course and international annual equestrian Sunshine Tour, while within easy reach are many of the historical and cultural gems of Bolonia, Cadiz, Seville & even Morocco to explore.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to write and thank you for a thoroughly enjoyable stay at El Sueno last week. Myself, my husband, our 17 year old and 22 month old all had a wonderful time at La Casita Pimienta - exploring the many stunning beaches nearby, the twisty, turn-ey streets and delicious tapas restaurants of Vejer de la Frontera, not to mention relaxing on the estate, which was a real home from home with everything we needed for our almost two year old. Your assistance beforehand - helping us to organise car hire, shopping etc - was greatly appreciated as was yours and Roberts assistance on arrival and we hope to return - with more family and friends in toe this time - very soon! Fond regards and thanks again for providing a truly magical setting for our first family holiday

Lovely holiday!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in the area and at the villa. Spacious, comfortable, clean and well equiped with children in mind. Very close to the pool which was great. The villa stood alone which was nice and private and safe for the children to play outside the door on the grassed area. Lovely gardens to explore, I liked the fact you are very enviromentally friendly and trying to have a low impact on the environment. We would definately return.
