Cadiz


Cadiz is the oldest recorded city in Europe, dating back to 1100 BC when the Phoenicians arrived and settled. The old town with its golden-domed cathedral, its grand open squares and high turreted houses looks much the same today as it did in the 17th and 18th centuries, when Cadiz was a thriving international port, with trading links with the Americas.

Picturesque Towns


Chiclana is the economic hub of the area and although not the most picturesque town in Spain it does have a few things going for it, including a very attractive beach area on the outskirts known as La Barrosa, five 18 holes golf courses and the marina at Sancti Petri. So in between sunbathing, golfing and sailing come in and see our range of properties. Fancy a villa in Chiclana? A townhouse in Conil? A finca in Alcala? The chances are we can find the right property for you.

A short drive north takes you to Jerez, the home of Sherry and many bodegas where you can enjoy a guided tour and sample the product! Jerez is also famous for its equestrian links, notably the Royal School of Equestrian Art and the May horse fair.
A few miles to the south lies the charming old fishing village of Conil, with its huge sandy beach stretching for miles either side of the town. This ideal family beach shelves gently to the Atlantic ocean, suprisingly calm considering the distance to the next landfall.

A few miles on from Conil lies Vejer de la Frontera, a classic, Moorish white town dramatically perched on a hillside overlooking the bay of Trafalgar. Virtually unchanged over the years a wander round its somewhat hilly streets will take you back in time to its Moorish roots.

Across the Bay of Cadiz lie the towns of Puerto de Santa Maria, Rota, Chipiona and Sanlucar. El Puerto is an attractive town with some beautiful old houses. The other three may lack some of the history of El Puerto but they all have great beaches and many pleasant streets and squares.

Inland there are beautiful white villages like Arcos, Medina Sidonia, Alcala de los Gazules, etc. where you can combine village life with beautiful landscapes. The area offers a combination of great views, good walking country, very attractive property prices, and great potential for anyone thinking of setting up a rural tourism venture.
