Superior Villas on the Costa de la Luz

The Costa de la Luz - Coast of Light, is an area of outstanding natural beauty with long and fine sandy beaches set in the shelter of pinewoods. The stunning sunsets stretch in an arc from Tarifa the southernmost point of mainland Spain near the Straits of Gibraltar, to the northern town of Ayamonte on the Portuguese border. This Western Andalucia coastline is home to the Provinces of Huelva and Cadiz - the 'Gateway to America'.

The intensely bright light reflecting off the silvery Atlantic Ocean is what gives the Costa de la Luz - Coast of Light - its name. It is also the influence of the Atlantic Ocean tides that make the 128km stretch of sandy golden beaches different to the rest of Spain. Most are long, straight and unspoilt, and backed by low cliffs, dunes and pines.

The Costa de la Luz - Spain's best-kept secret, has so far managed to escape the package based mass tourism seen elsewhere in this country. As a result, there is very little high rise development, and therefore holidays in villas and apartments set in sympathetic and traditional surroundings are popular.

The climate on the Costa de la Luz boasts over 3,200 hours of sunshine each year, and due to its location on the Atlantic Coast, the temperatures are slightly cooler than its neighbouring Mediterranean resorts, which can be a blessing in high summer.

The newly developed resort of Islantilla is the result of a philosophy combining relaxation with activity known as 'Active Leisure'.

Its location can be found between the tranquil resort of La antilla and the picturesque town of Isla Cristina. The charming town of Lepe is only 4km away. The natural beauty of Islantillas virgin beaches together with its famous 27-hole championship golf course dominates this resort.

The busy and nearby resort of Punta Umbria and the picturesque fishing village of El Rompido on the Piedras estuary, are only a short drive away and both well worth a visit.

The charming maritime town of Ayamonte, which stands high above the river Guadiana and positioned on the Spanish and Portuguese border is not to be missed, and becomes very popular with tourists during the summer months.

The historic walled city of Cadiz is approximately 2 hours away, and the world renowned treasures of Seville are not much more than a one hour drive. For nature lovers, the Aracena Mountain Range and the National Park at Donana, are also within easy reach.

Activities available at Islantilla include nature walks, horse riding, cycling, water sport activities, and of course, the golf.

Islantilla is the perfect choice to experience 'Active Leisure' and absorb the culture and hospitality that is on offer in the friendly café/bars, taverns and restaurants of this charming holiday resort.
