COSTA DE LA LUZ:

The „Coast of the Light“ on the Atlantic Ocean stretches from Tarifa - the Strait of Gibraltar - until the Portuguese-Spanish border and consists of the provinces of Cádiz and Huelva. It is considered as one of the last coastal lines that have been spared of massive construction, where you can still find endless, unspoilt, fine sandy beaches, natural sand dunes, small hidden bays and romantic typical Andalusian white villages. More than 3,000 hours of sunshine per year is certainly one of the highest in the whole of Europe – that’s why it is called “Costa de la Luz” – Coast of the Light!

CONIL DE LA FRONTERA:

Situated at approx. 40 km from Cádiz and with 20.000 habitants. In former times the most important sources of income were agriculture and fishing (especially tuna) - nowadays tourism has become the main industry. Its main attraction - and well-known in almost the whole of Spain -  is its 15 km long virgin sand beach which even during the high season always offers enough space for everybody, whether for a sun bath or for long walks on the beach. Conil has a small, romantic old town with small narrow streets, whitewashed courtyards decorated with flowers, typical Tapas bars and excellent fish and seafood restaurants. During the high season (especially in August!) it gets very crowded with mostly Spanish tourists as Conil has become very popular especially among people from Madrid and Northern Spain. The best time to visit Conil is during spring (March to June) and autumn (September and October), but also during the winter months it offers pleasant tempartures of 15 to 20 degrees and especilly a lot of light - therefore its name "Costa de la Luz - Coast of Light".

Conil is also an excellent initial point for visits in the surrounding (Cádiz, Jerez, Seville, the route of the white villages, Ronda, Tarifa, Gibraltar, etc.).

CADIZ:

The provincial capital is also called "Tazita de Plata“ (“Little silver cup ”) by their habitants . The old town is located on a headland, surrounded by the Atlantic sea. It is the oldest town of Western Europe (approx. 1100 B.C., built by the Phoenician). Walking through its narrow streets with their little shops, and enjoying the special light and the salty breeze, makes you feel like being in a different age. The most famous sights are the Cathedral and its more than 120 look-out towers, the best known one called “Torre Tavira” offering a spectacular and amazing view over the whole city and bay of Cádiz.

JEREZ DE LA FRONTERA:

Situated approx. 60 kilometers from Conil, it is called "The Town of the Famous Sherry Wine, the Andalusian Horses and the Cradle of Flamenco" – most of the visitors go there because of the many wine cellars - the Sherry Bodegas - and the Spanish Horse Riding School. We especially recommend a visit to the colourful celebration of the “Feria de Caballo” – taking place every year for one week at the beginning of May – it´s when the whole city gathers with thousands of decorated horses, carriages, horse riders, pretty women with their gorgeous flamenco dresses, and thousands of visitors from all over the world visiting Jerez – it is then when the whole town celebrates with its wine, its horses and its Flamenco music and dance – OLÉ!

SEVILLE:

approx. 150 kilometers from Conil away, also called „the princess among the Andalusian towns“, has become during the past years more and more the future center of economy and industry. The old town of Seville impresses with the famous cathedral, its clock tower “la Giralda”, the old castle “Reales Alcázares” and the beautiful place “Plaza de España”. Furthermore you should not miss a visit of the lovely, former Jewish district “Barrio de Santa Cruz”, with its romantic narrow streets, original tiled bars and small hotels – the best way to discover it is during a unhurried walk.
