Locations on the beautifully unspoilt Costa de la Luz do not come much better than this and we feel fortunate to have found this gem of a property which is located in a smart residential street only a 15 minute walk from the sandy beach of Roche with over 4km of golden sands and sheltered cliff backed coves.

Roche is an attractive neighbourhood of coastal homes set within the middle of a 1400 hectare pine forest and is one of the most prestigious along the Costa de la Luz. Sports facilities include tennis and a local surf school – a haven for sports lovers and those looking to relax and unwind.  A gentle 15 minute stroll from the house will lead you to the shaded square where one can find the local mini-market, café, church, tapas bar and children’s play area whilst one of the most well-known restaurants of the area is also within walking distance.

Guests at Casa El Pinar will find a smart and comfortable family home decorated in a traditional Andalucian style with tiled floors and neutral colours.  The large windows in the open plan living/dining room allow the natural light to flood in, making it bright and airy.  The kitchen conveniently opens out onto a dining terrace which looks towards the gated pool, lawned garden and palm trees.

Four of the five bedrooms and a family bathroom can be found on the first floor where a door leads from the landing to a south west facing terrace, the ideal place to which to retreat!

Roche is ideally located for exploring the delights of the Costa de la Luz. As well as a choice of beaches to visit within the neighbourhood itself, the golden sands, crystalline waters and fish restaurants of El Palmar, La Barrosa and Conil are just a short drive away.  The white hilltop villages of Vejer, Medina Sidonia and Arcos are not to be missed; the provincial capital Cadiz is only 30 minutes away by car and the flamenco capital of Jerez can be reached in under an hour.

Please note:  Guests paying the small party rate will have use of the ground floor double bedroom and one of the twin bedrooms on the first floor.

Locality

Great Things to Do Near Casa El Pinar

Magical sunsets

The sheltered coves and the long sandy beach at Roche are all west facing - the ideal spot to watch the fantastic sunsets whilst enjoying a drink at one of the local chiringuitos.

Snorkeling

The crystal clear waters at Roche and Conil make them the perfect beaches to practice snorkeling. From La Fontanilla beach it is even possible to view canons and canon balls on the sea bed dating from the Battle of Trafalgar.

Shop for local delicacies

Visit one of the daily fresh food markets in one of the local towns such as Conil, Chiclana or Barbate. Purchase seasonal fruit and vegetables, freshly caught fish (including the famous Almadraba tuna), locally sourced Retinto beef or Iberian pork - all perfect to cook on the BBQ back at the villa.

Cycling

It is possible to hire road or mountain bikes locally, the latter ideal for exploring the coastal cliff top routes and pine forests of Roche.

Aquasherry

Treat the younger members of the family to a day out at the local water park in El Puerto de Santa Maria. Rapids, slides, wave pools and much more.

Flamenco

Visit one of the tablao flamenco bars in Conil to see an exhilarating performance including dancing, singing and guitar. The Barrio de Santiago in Jerez is where you are likely to see impromptu flamenco in the evening.

Horse riding

The nearest horse riding school is just 5 minutes away by car. From beginners to experts, they can provide lessons or treks to suit your needs. Ride along the beach at La Barrosa or through the pine trees and parkland in Roche.

Conil market

The Friday morning flea market is one of the best in the area. The ideal chance to purchase clothes, swimwear, leather shoes and handbags, jewellery, spices, herbs, sweets and olives. Even if you do not buy anything, it's a great people watching event.

Take the train to Sevilla

It is less than 1.5 hours on the train to the capital of Andalucia. Take a horse and carriage ride around the city and Maria Luisa park, visit the bull ring, wander around the Alcazar Palace and Gardens close to the Cathedral and its Giralda Tower. You will be sure to return.

Tapas tour around Cadiz

An easy day trip from El Pinar. Spend the morning strolling down the seafront and then head into the centre of town to visit the flower market and indoor fresh food market - featured recently in a TV program with a famous UK celebrity chef! Enjoy lunch and a cool drink at any one of the stalls/tapas bars around the market or in La Viña neighbourhood.

Whale watching

An amazing day trip for all ages. Depart the port of Tarifa and head out into the Staits to witness dolphins, pilot whales and orcas swimming in their natural habitat - simply beautiful.

Vejer - pueblo blanco

Visit the white hilltop village of Vejer which is just 20 minutes down the road. Meander through the narrow cobbled streets, by-passing geranium filled patios and courtyards. Stop to browse in one of the boutique shops or enjoy a leisurely lunch/evening meal in one of the local tapas bars or fine dining restaurants - a delight for all foodies.
