About this listing
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.

We had a lovely two days in Tarifa. Natalia's place is perfectly located in the heart of things in the old town and was all we needed for two adults and two kids. She was really helpful when we arrived and had the place in perfect condition. I was sorry to leave the town which even at the height of the season was easy to deal with - great food, cool shops and the lovely strolls along the winding streets in the old town. The beach is a short walk which was great with two young kids and Natalia offered us use of her beach umbrellas. 10 out of 10 for the whole experience. We would stay in Natalia's cute local apartment any time.
Casa molto accogliente e bella.. Perfetta per trascorrere un'ottima vacanza a Tarifa
El alojamiento de Natalia es un sitio fenomenal. Bien situado y limpio. Está todo muy bien organizado y Natalia nos ofreció todas las facilidades para llegar.
Estuvimos muy bien en la casa de Natalia, todo fué fácil con ella y con el apartamento. La posibilidad de poder aparcar bien y tener el acceso al pueblo tan a mano hacen que puedas disfrutar de Tarifa en todas sus versiones. La casa estaba muy limpia, acogedora y cómoda. Muy recomendable!
Natalia was very forthcoming, contacting us in advance and really making sure we know and get everything we need to arrive safe. The apartment is as charming as it gets, so many lovely details and sends out so much positive and peaceful energy. It's a very short walk to all the nice cafés and restaurants
This place is wonderful. It's so close to amazing restaurants and so conveniently located. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed. The couch and the beds were so comfy. Really, everything was so comfortable. I wish we could have staid there longer!
