Luxury villa with private pool overlooking golf course, close to beach

Bedrooms 4
Half Baths1
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

1 Double, 3 twin bedrooms. 3 bathrooms, 2 ensuite. Villa sleeps 8 plus cot

This luxury traditional style villa, situated on the 10th fairway of the golf course, is the perfect venue for a family or golfing holiday. A safe, gorgeous sandy beach is within easy walking distance and several other spectacular beaches are only a short drive away. The villa is luxuriously furnished with a large, bright living room which has seating for 8 and satellite TV. The dining area has a large extendable table and also seating for 8. There are 3 bedrooms on the ground floor consisting of a twin room with its own ensuite bathroom and seperate door to the courtyard, and two further twin rooms with a shared family bathroom, together with the fully-fitted kitchen, making the house suitable for those who require downstairs accommodation. The master suite is upstairs and has an ensuite bathroom and large roof terrace.

The large and spacious garden has a paved area infront of the large patio doors overlooking the golf course. There is a large outdoor table with seating for 10 on this patio which is also shaded by a wooden pergola. The area around the 8m x 4m swimming pool is decked and is ideal for sunloungers. The pool is also surrounded by fencing, however sections infront of the decking areas are removeable if visitors prefer. In addition their is also a large courtyard, ideal for the sunny but cooler winter months. The remainder of the garden is grassed, private and secure. Access to the car port is via an electric gate.

Hire car rates: Cars can be hired easily on line and I recommend that you 'surf' to find the best deal for you. A car is advisable but not absolutely necessary. Faro airport is the best for the villa at approximately one hour away, however Seville is also convenient only an extra few mins more than Faro. Again, 'surf' the net for the best deals for flights. Faro is extremely well served and Ryanair fly daily to Seville.

Golf information:: The villa occupies a beautiful location, overlooking the 10th fairway of the Nuevo Portil Campo de Golf. El Rompido Golf Course is less than 5 minutes' drive away. The courses here on the Atlantic Coast of Spain are relatively quiet, of excellent quality and much better value than those over the border in Portugal. In total there are 6 courses within a 15 min drive of the villa and a further 4 within another 20 minutes. Discounted Green Fees can be organised through our local rep.

Beach: The beach is a 10 - 15 min stroll away, and has miles of golden sand. There is also a 5km long sand spit aprox 200m offshore from the main beach which can be accesed via water taxi's during the high season.

Beach Towels and Parasols are provided.

Better than expexted

  • 5 of 5

Lovely villa in lovely surroundings. We went as a group of 3 couples and there was plenty of room for everyone. Very well equipped on every level from kitchen to bedrooms and bathrooms to outdoor space. The surrounding areas are great . We loved El Rompido and went for lunch there a few times. Not many restaurants open in the evenings anywhere during the week at this time of year because there are not the tourists about, but alot more at the weekends. Good supermarkets are within easy reach of the villa so not really a problem. Very relaxing and comfortable stay. Any problems we had, which were few, were quickly sorted by Emma and Chris and the team. Thankyou for a great holiday.

I have been trying to contact euro assistance (property insurance division). Since you recommended this insurance to cover any damage to Property 82896 (El Portil, Cartaya, owner: Andy Gosling, picture opposite), and we wish to claim for accidental damage to two dining room chairs by a very young child, during our stay, can you please help me to contact this elusive insurance group? I have sent two claim forms to date and have heard not one cheep back. Can you help me to contact europ assistance? I am losing patience. Colin Campbell ( Mid Street, Keith, AB55 5 BL/01542649484.

Excellent villa in peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd time that we have stayed at this villa and are hoping to return again in the future, the villa has everything that you need and is set in a peaceful area but within walking distance of restaurants and shops. The villa is very clean and comfortable and has all mod cons, Andy the owner is very helpful and informative and is more than happy to deal with any queries. We had a very relaxing stay and look forward to returning next year.

Wonderful villa

  • 5 of 5

I can not express how much we enjoyed staying at this villa. It has everything you require. We went away with another family and it was perfect (4 adults and 4 children - ages 1, 5, 6 and 8) the pool was fantastic for the kids. The area was fab, not many tourists around and it was very very Spanish... Really enjoyed seeing how the Spanish live! Eating out was fab, lots of lovely restaurants close by. Water park was a good day out and so was the camel riding. Our husbands enjoyed the golf course. We all enjoyed every moment of our holiday and the villa was super! We will be returning very soon.

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed middle of August and had a wonderful family holiday. Four adults and four children aged between 5 and 14 were easily accommodated in this great villa.

Everything is as described on the website so you won't be dissappointed. It is in a great quiet residential location backing onto the golf course and is an easy stroll to lots of nice cafes and beach bars in the town. The beach is great and whilst we ventured out a few nights to be honest it was so relaxing to BBQ and eat al fresco we did that most nights.

We really enjoyed our stay, crazy golf is a short walk and a short drive for a day out at the water park and great go kart track next door.

The owners were really helpful and couldn't do enough to make our stay perfect.

Already planning to return next year.

Can't recommend highly enough FANTASTIC!

Car: recommended

The villa is situated on a quiet road on the Neuvo Portil Campo de Golf, overlooking the 10th green of the 18 hole course. Within a short walking distance there are bars and resturants, as well as two 4 star hotels that both offer Spa / Fitness facilities. The stunning beach of El Portil is also just a short 10 minute walk away. 5min drive up the coast is the quaint fishing village of El Rompido, which boasts many fabulous fish resturants amongst others. Additionally there is a Marina complex, two further golf courses along side a 5 star hotel. If a little more excitement is in order then a little further up the road there is a water park and karting track. During the summer months the town of Punta Umbria, which is just 15 mins drive from the villa, provides great nightlife, with large open air nightclubs, for the young or young at heart to dance the night away. Our local representative will be able to provide further info on the area, as well as arranging discounted golf packages.

Other Activities: Karting + Waterpark + Theme Park (Seville).

Golf: Neuvo Portil golf is less than a 5 minute drive from the villa to the club house. Green fees are great value at a fraction of the cost to those on the Portugese side of the border. The excellent 18 hole course is rarely that busy, so no frustrating waiting around. Just 5 minutes drive from here, El Rompido golf boasts a further two superb 18 hole courses. Several other courses are also within a half hour drive. Our local representative can arrange discounted green fees (approx £22 pp) on request.
