Perks for the Parents

This tranquil property with a large garden and pool is less than half mile from the beach in Islantilla, a 40-60 minute drive from Huelva. Set in a quiet location near to a golf course, it’s a great base from which to explore Spanish beaches and the Algarve. Hit the water to sail, surf and swim or trek for the day on foot or take a pony to explore the countryside, dotted with picturesque hamlets and olive trees. Head into Huelva to enjoy the maritime delights or take a day trip to the region’s capital, Seville, a 1.5 hour drive away.

Why Kids Love it

There is a great garden for playing in, a pool (unheated, not open year round) and a beach a short distance away. Two bedrooms are ideally set up for kids, each with 2 twin beds, so 4 kids can be accommodated. A travel crib is also available. Excursions with kids are easy: there is a harbour and horse riding centre, both 2 km away plus the town itself is walkable (1km away) and there is a supermarket 200m away. The house is very close to the border with Portugal; it’s easy to drive over for a day trip and an extra passport stamp.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 5 days except in June and September when it is 7 nights, and July and August when it is 14 nights. The pool is available May-October only. There is space to park at the property. The 5 bedrooms sleep up to 10 but 2 further guests can be accommodated on the double sofa bed in the lounge. The house is 200 m from a supermarket, 45 km from a train station and 5 km from the bus station. Portugal is 20 minutes away by car. Car rental is essential in this rural destination.

About the Location

The property is in Islantilla, a beachfront suburb of Andalusia, approximately 60km from Huelva on the Andalusian coast. Seville is a 1.5 hour drive away and Faro Airport is 85 km away; it is an easy location to reach if flying into either Faro or Seville. It is within driving distance of Seville, the Algarve in Portugal and Doñana National Park, with its beautiful marshes, shallow streams and sand dunes.

Accommodation Details

This 5-bedroom house includes 3 double bedrooms with king, queen or double beds and 2 bedrooms each with 2 twin beds. There are 3 bathrooms, all with showers, and 1 further WC. Downstairs, there is a large fully-equipped kitchen, a dining/living room and a large terrace. Two bedrooms and 1 bathroom are on the ground floor. The upper floor includes a suite with a large bathroom and terrace overlooking the golf course. Outside there is a garden, terrace with grill and garden furniture, and a pool open May-October.

Style Notes

Simple comfort. The house is relatively new and finished to a high standard. The back deck is ideal for sunbathing and relaxing, guests can enjoy outdoor dining in the garden, or sit back and simply listen to the birds. We love the oil paintings, the white and serene bedrooms and the outdoor space for days of fun.

I'm a mother of two kids who are 15 and 13 years old. The eldest one enjoys outdoor sports, listening to music, going out to restaurants and visiting places. The youngest one -Lola- loves to read and cultural activities. My husband and I just enjoy traveling to different places and learning about other cultures.

Islantilla, Andalusia

In the province of Huelva, close to the Portuguese border, this Spanish town on the Costa del Luz is renowned for its beaches. Visit pretty ports and watch the boats coming to and fro, try out water sports (kite surfing is particularly good in this area, as is wind surfing) or take the countryside in by bike or on horseback on the region's famous steeds.

We had a pleasant stay at Chirina Residence. Tatiana was very welcoming and made gifts to the children. The residence is close to Portugal where we spent a great day. The pool is not heated so we couldn't swim but the children had good time on the beach.
