Deporte, playa y relax : May 2013

Hemos estado 10 días en Junio (2013) en esta casa, Villa Christina, y nos ha encantado. La piscina, el jardín y el porche están muy cuidados. La casa muy cómoda y perfectamente equipada. La zona es tranquila, ideal para excursiones en bici, ir a la playa caminando... o simplemente quedarse en la casa a relajarse. Vamos: ¡¡¡¡Para repetir!!!! PD: nos gustó mucho el Bar La Triniá en la Plaza de la Sal... sus bacalaos espectaculares...


Christmas Cracker! : December 2012

What a superb way to spend Christmas and New Year away from the drab British winter and the hassles of the festive period! Instead we found ourselves in our very own small part of Spain, with glorious warm winter sunshine (Yes we were in shorts and t-shirt every day) staying in a truly gorgeous large, spacious, very well equipped villa. Such a good decision of ours to escape. We had a great time. The villa cant be faulted. Its spacious rooms are equipped to a high standard, with lovely well maintained gardens, BBQ patio and pool. Yes, we had a few BBQ in the late evening winter sun, but no didn't use the pool! The owners were very helpful and friendly, happy to give advice on where to go etc. Situated within walking distance of the numerous restaurants and beach, it gave us the opportunity to try the local tapas bars and locally caught fish, all at very reasonable prices, as often as we wanted. Seville is within driving distance aswell as the Tinto mines-both worth a day trip to. We loved the beach, miles of glorious sand and don't be fooled, it might be winter but it was still sunny and very warm! We have such fond memories of spending New Years Day on the beach chilling at ne of the friendly beach bar restaurants...just perfect! It was definitely a Christmas not to forget.


Second year at Villa Christina : July 2012

This has been our second year at Villa Christina. Like the first one, everything was clean and tidy on our arrival. The villa is what you see on photos. The swimming pool is wonderful. Our child enjoyed it a lot. The villa is in a quiet area of El Portil. You only have neighbors on both sides, and they are not noisy at all. The location shown in the map in this web is pretty exact. You'll have to walk 10-15 minutes to the closest beach, but if you have a car you can drive towards Punta Umbria and, in less than five minutes, you´ll arrive to much better beaches. In El Portil you'll find enough shops and supermarkets. If not, you can drive to Cartaya or Punta Umbria, where you can find Carrefour and Mercadona. There are a lot of bars and restaurants, although you'll need to practice your Spanish, as English it´s not very common in this area of Huelva.


Wonderful Villa! : July 2011

The villa is exactly as shown on photos. On our arrival it was perfectly clean and tidy. It is very well equipped, so you won’t need to take anything with you. The kitchen is quite complete, and you’ll find enough dishes for 8 people. The bathrooms (there are 3 in the villa) are comfortable, as the bedrooms. You’ll find good wardrobes on each bedroom, iron and iron table, hairdryer, etc. The villa is quite cool. We did not have to use the air conditioning at all, but if you suffer with hot temperatures, you’ll find the villa well equipped. Two weeks before our arrival we received complete information from the owners. With the maps they send it’s impossible to get lost! Inside the villa you’ll find more information about things to do in the area. The swimming pool, the garden and the barbecue area are, simply, wonderful. All my family enjoyed them. We have just began the countdown to get back to this lovely villa!


A GREAT PLACE FOR A FAMILY HOLIDAY : June 2011

My family which included my daughters their hubbies and my grandson spent a glorious week at the villa. It was equipped to a very high standard and my family loved the pool. It was spotlessly clean upon our arrival and loved that the pool cleaner/handiman popped in every other day to ensure that everything was ok. It is in walking distance to the beach and restaurants and shops.. The resort was a dream and I loved the fact that there were mainly Spanish hoiidaying here which reflected in the fabulous tapas and general atmosphere...it certainly tested my knowledge of Spanish but it just added to the fun. Sevilla was only an hour away as was Portugal so plenty of opportunitites for days out if required. Would I return to this lovely part of Andalucia and this fab Villa?....ABSOLUTELY!


Lovely villa close to beautiful uncrowded beaches : September 2009

The villa was well described and spotlessly clean. The swimming pool was a delight and both the house and the garden/pool area fitted out to a high standard. The local beaches are wonderful, safe, clean and uncrowded with lots of small bars and places to eat dotted along the coast. Local area typically spanish with plenty of opportunity to practice your spanish when shopping or ordering food/drinks! Both Faro and Seville airports one hour away and roads were not busy. Villa owners very helpful. Would definetly recommend this villa to family and friends.


Our fabulous holiday! : August 2008

We had a great time at this comfortable villa in the thriving Spanish seaside resort. Spanish being the operative word, there a few non-Spanish tourists in the area and you need to operate on Spanish time! But the opportunities to relax and see a bit of the real Spain are immense. We chilled out by the pool on many days or popped down to one of the many local sandy beaches where the breeze makes the temperature very comfortable. Good watersports available. Local restaurants served good Spanish food although you will often need your phrasebook to translate. The villa is very well appointed and the air conditioning helps you to sleep at night if you are not a hot weather lover. Small children would need to be watched as the pool is not enclosed but those families with older children will love the pool and garden (ours were 10 and 14). Seville is only an hour away and the national park is worth a visit or two. Easy to drive around the local area.
