Un entorno privilegiado

Costa

The small hotel is located facing meadowland dotted with stone pines that extend to the coves of Roche. The area is characteristic for the existence of protected species such as the juniper. The area nearest the hotel has been adapted as a zone for leisure and enjoyment.

The area’s beaches stand out for the great quality of the water, which means they are perfect for scuba diving, and for the light-coloured, very fine sand that often forms gentle dunes. Along most of the coast there are conveniences such as beach bars or chiringuitos, showers, toilets and coastguard posts for everybody to use. In addition, there are places where one can enjoy nature at its purest. Some of the most prized beaches are those of the coves of Roche, hidden among cliffs, whose wild beauty invites one to have a dip and a walk.

The Prado de Castilnovo beach and the Salado River mouth are also especially attractive. Inaccessible from the town except via the bridge over the river, there is a line of fine sand upon which one’s only company is usually that of cows. There is also a watchtower that dates back to the 18th century and trenches from the Second World War that were never used.

Parque Natural de la Bahía de Cádiz


Las Cumbres - Entorno

This zone has been exploited for centuries due to the quality of its salt flats that are used today as saline farms for estuary fish such as sole, dorado and mullet. The contact between the sea and the land creates a landscape of pines and beaches of large dunes. One place not to be missed is the Sancti Petri Park. The first thing one finds is an abandoned town that was once exclusively dedicated to the millenary almadraba art of tuna fishing.

From this curious place one can reach a beautiful island and the ruins of the Sancti Petri castle (16th cent.), where according to legend the temple of Hercules once stood.

Cádiz

Las Cumbres - Entorno

The oldest city in the West is located on ancient islands that are now joined to the peninsula. The attacks from the British imposed a different urban development from that of the rest of Andalusia, where big noble and religious buildings with handsome gardens predominate. This ancient city is military and bourgeois in style and is hemmed in by strong walls with beautiful views of the sea. The city’s typical shell limestone gives shape to large city blocks crowned by lookout towers that forever keep watch over the sea.
