A charming 2 bedroom apartment in the centre of Tarifa´s historic old town, recently completely renovated and decorated comfortably in a Moroccan influenced style with an excellent internet connection.
The spacious and bright open plan living space has a well equipped fitted kitchen, a dining table and living area - a perfect place to chill out after a hard day at the beach! Beautifully maintained, a light restful space that is a perfect home from home!
There are 2 airy bedrooms – the master has a double bed and opens onto the back patio which adjoins Tarifa´s ancient city wall. The second bedroom has two single beds. The bathroom is spacious with a big wet-room style shower. At the entrance there is a small sun terrace - with a table and chairs - where you can sit and soak up the laid back Andalusian atmosphere as the locals go about their daily lives.
As the apartment is located at the edge of the old town it is easily accessible by car, even in the height of summer, when all the roads in the old town are closed to traffic. You can unload your car at the front door – a big plus for wind or kite enthusiasts and families with children – easier to bring all the equipment to and from the beach! This part of the old town is called ´la Barriada de Antonio Ordoñez´, a typical barrio in the highest part of Tarifa´s old town, beside the ancient city wall. You are only metres from the ´Miradaor del Estrecho´ – the scenic viewpoint where you will not be disappointed by the spectacular views of continental Africa only 14km away across the Strait of Gibraltar. A central location means you don´t need a car. Beaches, restaurants, bars and shops etc., are all a short stroll away - allowing you to fully appreciate the hypnotic rhythm of life in Tarifa - by day and night!
Walk just 5 minutes and you have a choice of breathtaking white sandy beaches near Tarifa´s Isla de las Palomas - the southern most tip of continental Europe - on one side you can see the Mediterranean and on the other the Atlantic. If you are visiting Tarifa to Windsurf or Kite Surf you need to travel 7 or 8 km out of town to Valdevaqueros and Punta Paloma.
Tarifa´s port is a few minutes away where you can catch the fast ferry to Tangier – travel time is only 30 minutes. Guided tours depart from the port to Morocco daily. If you don´t feel like going to the beach, only 50 metres from the apartment, are many hiking trails in the ´Parque Natural del Estrecho´ – the Strait of Gibraltar Natural Park – with breath taking views of the shipping lanes in the Strait, the Pillars of Hercules and Morocco, it is a pleasure to explore this undeveloped and virgin coastline.

Natalia's place is truly charming,she is a very responsive, hospitable host who has truly thought of everything that would make a guest feel comfortable and welcomed.
Bed was comfortable, she has provided essentials and then some in the kitchen and bathroom. Wifi fast and strong. It was a very chilly and wet few days that we were visiting Tarifa, but she has provided multiple heaters, there are rugs scattered for coziness underfoot, so it was very comfortable and welcoming coming home drenched and chilled to the bone!
Natalia's place is an excellent choice in Tarifa. Wonderful location, walkable to many tapas bars in old town and to the ferry, if you're planning to visit Tangier.
Natalia was really helpful - answering our questions before booking, being flexible with out arrival and departure times & making some really helpful suggestions about places to eat and drink - drawn on a little map that we then took around with us.
We like Bar Bien Star on the beach (great mojitos, gin cocktails and views); Hurricane Hotel bar up the coast a little way, and Bar Bossa in the old town.
Natalia warned us about the Levante wind forecast for three or so of the five days we stayed - so we drove up to Cadiz and Vejer for a look around on those days.
The apartment is pretty and well stocked - it is also bigger than it looks in the photos!
Extra blankets and heaters were welcome as the flat was a little chilly at times - perhaps due to the time of year.
The kitchen has plenty of pans / plates / glasses etc and the table is a nice big one to eat at.
Parking can be tricky - the streets are narrow, and you need to be happy with lots of three point turns and tight squeezes to park anywhere near the apartment! but there's plenty of parking down the hill by the sea front usually too (a few minutes walk away).
The apartment is homely and Natalia is really welcoming.
Natalia's apartment is absolutely delightful. We really enjoyed our stay. It's a great location and is very homely. She was also a pleasure to deal with, responding quickly and making the process easy. Thank you.
As Natalia was away her friend Aida stepped in and was very helpful, met us at the apartment, showed us where to eat, brought us an extra fire (due to an unexpected cold snap in Tarifa!) and was very friendly. The location is great just inside the city walls and 5 minutes from restaurants and bars and the sea. Had a lovely walk along the med coast just 2 minutes from the house. Parking was variable, sometimes we parked practically outside the apartment and sometimes down the bottom of the hill but we always managed to find a spot. The bed is really comfy and the washing machine great.
Natalia's place was nice and very comfortable. We had plenty of space. The kitchen is well equipped. The bathroom is big and the shower is nice.
Natalia is a great host. She came immediately to rescue us when we couldn't find the place.
Tarifa is a great place to visit. Her apartment has a great location.
We had a great time: that's my husband, my 16 year old son and me.
The apartment is very cosy and veryb well equipped. We spent Christmas and New Year's eve in the apartment and just felt at home.
There was plenty of room on the lounge sofa for the 3 us at night to
watch either television or programs on our I-pads.
Should we go to Tarifa again we surely will go to Natalia's charming old town apartment. The neighbourhood is very Spanish, which is nice and it's just a 5 minutes very nice walkt through small streets to the village centre. On Christmas Even and New Years Eve
there are festivities in the main streets, where inhabitants gather and have drinks and feast.
We had a lovely time. Thanks Natalia!!
