As we stepped through the entrance gates of this smart coastal home we instantly knew that its neat garden, stylish accommodation and enviable location would make it the perfect base for a holiday by the sea. From its stylish and up-to-date interior we looked out across attractive grounds and an eye-catching circular pool and found ourselves in one of the most sought after positions along this beautifully unspoilt stretch of coastline since just 1.9km away was the stunning sandy beach of Zahora with its rustic beachside restaurant and idyllic views down the coast towards the lighthouse of Trafalgar.

The pretty seaside village of Zahora has long been a favoured spot for guests staying on the Costa de la Luz and it is easy to see why. Beyond a picturesque sweep of golden sands a series of lanes wind their way past the gleaming white facades of charming local cottages, in amongst which can be found a butcher, baker and other local amenities.

Being situated off one of these country lanes and only 250m from the village pizzeria, Casa Zahora is within easy reach of the beach, its charming waterfront restaurant and all of these other appealing facilities. At the same time it is just a 15 minute drive from the quintessential hilltop ‘pueblo blanco’ of Vejer de la Frontera where an atmospheric network of ancient streets snake their way between uniformly whitewashed homes, stunning historic buildings and some of the finest dining establishments in the area.

Inside the house, beautifully presented rooms display an attractive décor that is neat, bright and up-to the minute. Forming the focal point and hub of the home is a wonderfully lofty living room which boasts an impressive high pitched ceiling of wooden beams and open tread stairs to a galleried landing from which the upstairs rooms are entered. The lawned garden that surrounds the house is easily accessible thanks to the patio doors that lead conveniently from the sitting area to a covered dining terrace overlooking the pool.
