“Fabulous!”
Reviewed May 23, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

I had previously stayed in the apartment, but this time I rented the house, and came with a family friend. It was amazing on arrival to find so much thought and care had gone into welcoming us to the house on arrival. And, as for clean, I could have eaten supper of the floor !!!
The local beach, and beach bar, in Bologna was pure heaven, watching our first sunset of the holiday. And the weather for two weeks was fabulous. The local shop keeper, Fernando, spoke great English, and couldn't do enough for us, including supplying us with the freshest local eggs - which were huge and tasted great.
The housekeeper for the house was at the end of a text in seconds when we had a query, and made our departure from the house so easy and friendly.
I'm booking the house for two weeks every May from now on! A real find.

“Facinas 2015”
Reviewed January 7, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Facinas is a village located 17km from Tarifa, a great distance from the hustle and bustle of being in the heart of Tarifa. From Facinas, we were able to drive to Vejer de la frontera, Gibraltar and other nearby sites with ease. Make sure you have transportation. The house was clean and as advertised. The house came fully equipped. I would recommend this house to any traveler to Southern Spain. Luz was outstanding and helpful. Luz is a great resource for information related to the region.

We have returned to Casa Facinas for another family holiday and are even more in love with it than before! This is a fantastic house - beautifully laid out with wonderful open space and big windows. The views are glorious and the calmness of the largely Spanish traditional village is truely welcome.

We travelled with our 2 young children (9 and 10) and have found it the perfect get-away. Great beaches within 10 minutes drive, and lovely walks straight from the house. The village has a small market every day and several small shops for every day essentials. It's 15 minutes drive from central Tarife and only about 45 minutes from Gibraltar.

The house itself has wonderful cooling polished plaster walls and a great kitchen with really good equipment. There's a lovely roof terrace for relaxing and BBQs.

All in all a fantastic house - we're already booking in for our next trip.

“Terrific house !”
Reviewed January 24, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

It not only felt like a perfectly appointed home, we found it wonderfully spacious with a log fire cosy feel on cooler winter Spanish nights. The roof terrace was fabulously spacious (and 5 star posh) and the view magnificent. We really loved this incredibly well built and very thoughtfully maintained house - great combination of charming rustic design and the very best of modern standards (bathrooms were impeccable). We will definitely book to go to Casa Facinas again.

“An ideal retreat to visit southern andalucia”
Reviewed September 23, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed three weeks in Casa Facinas, and we enjoyed every bit of it. 10-15 minutes to a wide array of beautiful beaches (Bolonia, Mirlo, Punta paloma)... The house is very well equipped and will make you feel like home, Facinas is quiet village with friendly shops that cater to your daily needs (no need to go to Tarifa every day!). Last but not least, Luz is as nice as oen can be, and is always prompt to answer any questions you may have.

“Fantastic Apartment”
Reviewed May 1, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We stayed here for 12 days in April 2013. It is a wonderful apartment, well equipped and with spectacular views over the surrounding hills. The owner could not have been more helpful, sending us information about the local area ahead of our trip. Facinas is a gorgeous, tranquil little town and very well located for the local beaches and nature reserves- provided you have a car.

Strongly recommended.
