Vacation Rental Description
This beautifully restored house is run as one of the best B&Bs in Andalucia for much of the year so you are guaranteed quality and comfort. The views from the terraces of Morocco and Gibraltar are breathtaking. The lounge is huge and has a wireless internet connection, satellite TV and lots of books and DVDs. The beamed dining room has an open fire place and a table to seat 8 people.
The house has one large double/twin bedroom, one suite with a kingsize bed and private lounge, a master suite which has a large sunny bedroom and a lounge. The 4th room has twin beds and is smaller so is more suitable for children. All the rooms are full of personal touches with fresh flowers, fabulous beds with egyptian cotton sheets and each have a private bathroom (except the 4th room which has a lavatory next door). The master suite is on the second floor and has air conditioning, bedroom 2 & 3 are on the ground floor and remain cool in the summer months and have ceiling fans. Bedroom 4 has a mobile fan.
Cool off in the pool which is situated in the typical Andalusian patio in the centre of the house and measures 7 metres by 3 metres. This can be locked for peace of mind if you have small children.
The location can not be beaten; situated in the southwest tip of Andalucia there is something for everyone. Fabulous national park with great walking and which is a bird watchers paradise, stunning unspoilt beaches both on the Costa de la Luz and the Costa del Sol and some of the best golf courses in Europe. In summer you will be very grateful to be near the sea as inland is scorching and our local beaches don't get the strong winds of the west coast.
Casa Julio Verne is tucked away in the old quarter of San Roque, a traditional charming village with great value tapas bars and restaurants within a few minutes walking distance. The locals are warm and welcoming to foreigners. The bullring, which has its own museum, is one of the oldest in Andalucia. San Roque has its own carnival, ferias and an impressive Easter procession.
Within 10 minutes drive, there is a choice of quiet beaches, including the stunning Alcaidesa beach, which has an EU blue flag. Tarifa and the west coast is just 30 minutes away.
Travel 10 minutes inland to the spectacular Los Alcornocales National Park, with its picture-postcard pueblos blancos - white villages - nestled into the hillsides and turquoise lakes, for superb walking and bird-watching.
Without doubt Casa Julio Verne is a fabulous house set in a wonderful part of "real Spain".
