Stylish Penthouse Apartment near to beaches.
THE COMPLETE PACKAGE FOR A PERFECT HOLIDAY OR GOLF BREAK.
This modern, air conditioned and stylish penthouse apartment is the perfect base for a relaxing holiday or a golfing break on Costa Esuri. Located just north of the unspoilt Spanish border town of Ayamonte.
Simply cross the Guardiana River at the bridge from Portugal into Spain and after 2 Killometers you are "home" on Costa Esuri.
If you are looking for a quiet and relaxing location then look no further.
Just a 35 minute drive east on the motorway from Faro airport or west from Seville for 90 minutes. This beautiful fully furnished 2 bedroom apartment forms part of the peaceful gated community that is Rago 2 Costa Esuri. The master bedroom has a four piece en-suite bathroom. There is air conditioning to all rooms. The property is equipped to provide you with everything you need to make your holiday memorable. This includes power showers in each bathroom. A picnic box, beach chairs and sunshades are stored in a rooftop storage cabinet.
A lift serves this cool north facing second floor penthouse property that has panoramic views across the fairway of golf course No2. A kidney shaped solar heated swimming pool is the focal point of the manicured communal gardens.
A spiral staircase leads from the terrace up to your own private sunbathing roof top with breathtaking views of the nature reserve. Padded sun beds and a giant parasol are provided.
With over 300 days a year sunshine, this unspoilt corner of South West Spain lives up to its name of the "Coast of Light". Refreshing sea breezes take the edge off the summer heat. Mild winters give way to warm springs, with a profusion of blossom from the January-flowering almond trees to the explosion of orange scent in April. T-shirt and shorts weather through to the autumn make this an ideal all-year-round holiday destination. The first choice of holiday location for many Spanish people, and one of Spain's best-kept secrets.
Some of Europe's best sandy beaches are to be found in the little resorts along this coast, both on the Spanish and Portuguese sides - the Algarve is just 5 minutes' drive across the magnificent new river bridge. The sights and sophistication of Seville are just over an hour by car. Charming, unspoilt towns abound on both sides of the border, with castles and fortresses to remind you of the region's colourful past.
Nature lovers will relish the Dunas de Donana National Park just over an hour away - home to lynx and Imperial eagles.
Food lovers will enjoy the rich variety of fresh seafood, and the much-prized ham from the famous acorn-fed black pigs
Few months go by without one of the colourful and exuberant festivals (fiestas) for which the region is famous.
The golf resort of Costa Esuri is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty, right on the River Guadiana that forms the border between Spain and Portugal. Look out for the flamingos, storks and wild ponies as you cross the bridge into the resort. Miles of unspoilt countryside lie right behind the apartment, with rolling, pine- and cork-oak covered hills as far as the eye can see.
Just 5 minutes drive away is the traditional but bustling town of Ayamonte. Take a gentle stroll round the shops in the picturesque, winding (and pedestrianised!) streets. Relax over a drink or a meal at one of the many excellent restaurants and tapas bars in the pretty little squares, or by the marina. The perfect place to try the local specialities of Iberican ham, and seafood straight from the local fishing boats.
The nearest beach resort is Isla Canela, just a few minutes' drive from Ayamonte. Miles of golden sands, friendly beach bars and a range of watersports make for a perfect day out for the family. With sandy beaches within 15 minutes' drive on the Portuguese side as well, you will be spoilt for choice. There are 30 km of uninterrupted sandy beaches on the Spanish side of the border alone, most of them "blue flag".
The Cartaya waterpark is only 30 minutes drive away. Riverboat cruises up the Guadiana provide an opportunity to relax (and eat!) amidst stunning scenery. Go-karting, quad biking, fishing, cycle hire and horse-riding are all available too.
The area is a golfers' paradise, with no fewer than 15 courses (including the resort's own 2 championship-standard courses) within half an hour's drive, both in Spain and Portugal. The Costa Esuri West Course has a links feel to it because of the river, while the recently-opened East Course is a great challenge. Compare them with the new Seve Ballesteros course at Quinta do Vale, visible over the river from Costa Esuri, and with the sensational Jack Nicklaus course at Monte Rei, already rated as one of the top golf venues in Europe. But holiday golf in gorgeous surroundings is available at a host of other courses, at a fraction of the price of some of the well-known and overcrowded courses of the Central Algarve.
The area's rich and varied wildlife make it a haven for birdwatchers. Look out for the storks, egrets, black-legged stilts, avocets, purple herons, flamingos and purple gallinules on the golf courses and by the river, and for the bee eaters and golden orioles in the countryside behind the apartment.
There is a regular walking group that meets twice a week for comfortable-length guided walks in the beautiful unspoilt countryside on the Portuguese side of the river.
Sorry, no pets. Sorry, no smokers. All bookings are handled by our efficient English- and Spanish speaking resident neighbours Claire and Bill. They will be available during your holiday to answer your queries and give you peace of mind.
