Flat in Conil de la Frontera, Cádiz, Spain

Our apartment is located in Conil de la Frontera, an Andalusian “white town”, really beautiful and quite. It has wonderful spots and good quality services (shops, restaurants, “tapas” and nightlife) and it is nearby other beautiful places to visit in Cadiz such as Tarifa, the Rock of Gibraltar, Cadiz city, Cadiz's mountains, its white towns or even Northern Africa (you can find organized visits to Morocco just to spend the day). Fifteen of thirty minutes away from Conil by car you can find other wonderful beaches such as Zahara de los Atunes or Bolonia beach, which is a quite beautiful white sand beach, with the highest mobile dunes of Europe and a very well preserved Ancient Roman city by the sea. 
The apartment has two bedrooms, one with a double bed and a playpen cradle, and another bedroom with two single beds (80 x 200 cm each). It also has a nice living room and a balcony with wonderful sea sights of Conil beach and the long beach of El Palmar. The whole house is really sunny.   
Conil's beach is less than 100 metres away from the house, you just need to cross the street. It is a very ample white sun beach and it's such a pleasure to have a long walk by the sea early in the morning or at sunset. When the tide is low, you can walk the beach from Conil to Trafalgar Cape (8 Km away). 
If you like sports, in Conil you can snorkle, surf, ride horses by the cliffs of Barbate, mountain bike,...
  
Exchanges:
We are looking for any kind of exchange for two/four person during the whole year,  but during summer,  we are looking for a 6 person exchange for one or two week.

This apartment is our second house so our exchange doesn’t need to be simultaneous.

  Conil de la Frontera is  a picturesque fishing village  of white houses and narrow streets situated on rolling hills and golden sand beaches on a coastal plain to the southwest of the province of Cadiz. It is bathed by mild water of the Atlantic Ocean. It is far from Cadiz city about 42 kilometers, 54 kilometres away from Jerez de la Frontera -where the nearest airport is situated-, 140 kilometres from Seville (airport), and 200 kilometres from Malaga (international airport). 

Its average high temperatures vary between 16º-20º C in winter spring and autumn and 20-25º C in summer . The average lower temperatures are under 20ºC degrees in summer.
It is a really quite town of about 20.000 inhabitants, through the year, that in July and August triples in size as families and people arrive from other interior areas of Spain and rest os Europe to spend the summer holidays.
Fishing, agriculture, and more recently, tourism are the three main sources of wealth of Conil. Since historical times Conil was known for its fishing activity, in particular the tuna fishing which was already an important source of commerce in Roman times due to the garum, a tuna sauce which was the delight of the Roman Empire. This fishery continues to be practiced today during the spring in the almadraba, a network of fishing gears to capture tuna when coming to spawn.

Its major attraction is undoubtedly its beaches of fine sand and clear waters which gets longer than 14 km along the coast without interruption. All kinds of water sports can being practice and enjoy hiking trails. When the tide is low, you can walk the beach from Conil to Trafalgar Cape (8 Km away). It also has amazing cliffs extending from the beautiful `Fuente del Gallo´ beach and from the Faro (lighthouse) de Roche to the neighboring town of Chiclana, with scenic strolls on the cliff surrounded by wind protecting woods, and lovely coves of curious names as “del Aceite”, “Los Pitones”, “del Tío Juan de Medina”, “El Frailecillo, guarantees you a beautiful sea promenade with unforgettable views.

Conil has wonderful spots and good quality services and it is nearby other beautiful places to visit in Cadiz such as Tarifa, the Rock of Gibraltar, Cadiz city or even Northern Africa (you can find organized visits to Morocco just to spend the day). Fifteen of thirty minutes away from Conil by car you can find other wonderful beaches such as Zahara de los Atunes or Bolonia beach, which is a quite beautiful white sand beach, with the highest mobile dunes of Europe and a very well preserved Ancient Roman city by the sea.
