As the long shadows of the umbrella pines fall across the vast stretch of lawn at Casa del Jardín, you will be facing the first dilemma of your holiday: should you have your drinks on the protected terrace overlooking the pool or in the chillout area from where you can keep an eye on the rather splendid barbecue... and still enjoy the view of the pool? But there will probably be few other such difficult decisions; this property has been purpose-refurbished to encourage families and friends to relax. The garden, pool, and outdoor kitchen/dining/chillout area are all generous to say the least, the sitting room is stylish and fresh, the kitchen brand new and geared to comfortable cooking, and with the beach just 500 metres away, the sound of the breaking rollers will help lull you into a holiday slumber.
It is actually pretty unusual to find a property in this area with quite so much garden (2,400sqm) this close to the beach (500m). It also comes with a large (12x6m) pool with a wonderful covered outdoor dining area, kitchen, and chillout. The refurbishment was completed in 2019, and it makes an ideal holiday property for groups looking for space outdoors.
The house itself is on one floor, built in the traditional L-shape like so many properties in this area, so as to provide protection for the central terrace. One side of the “L” is made up of the sitting/dining room and kitchen, and the other by the bedroom wing, which includes a large main suite with doors and views down the length of the garden, another double, a twin, and a childrens’ twin with optional bunk beds. These three bedrooms share the second bathroom, but there is also a third large and very nice bathroom next to the pool.
The main living area has been refurbished in pastels and whites, making for a fresh light room in the summer months, but the wood-burner creates a cosy corner for the damper weeks off-season. The feeling from the inside is that of a cottage by the sea, although from the outside it is that much more!
It is a short walk (400m) to the local shop, pharmacy, bar, and childrens’ playground. Roche also has its own tennis courts and five-a-side football pitches. In the summer months, there are several beach bars/restaurants to choose from, and within a 5-10 minute drive you have a larger selection of places to eat all year round. The area offers an endless list of activities, information on many of which you will find here on our website and on our Facebook page. And if you book with us, we provide you with detailed information on all our recommendations, details on local amenities, and our up-to-date guide to the best of everything! You could spend a wonderful holiday here without a car, and just hire bikes; but, assuming you will have a car, it’s 15 minutes to Conil, 20 minutes to the hill-top village of Vejer-de-la-Frontera, 30 minutes to Cadiz, 40 minutes to Tarifa and Jerez, and 90 minutes to Seville, all of which are worth visiting. So, it’s good to have a car and probably worth coming for two weeks rather than one!!!!
