Isla Canela is located in the southwest of Spain, in the province of Huelva, between the Andalusian Atlantic and the Portuguese Algarve. It shares the charms of both Andalusia and the Algarve, and is set within an area of spectacular coastal scenery, with wide, sandy beaches, sand dunes and salt marshes.The beautiful 7 kilometre beach of fine, golden sand is what attracts tourists to Isla Canela. For golf enthusiasts there is an 18 hole golf club, and a marina, the commercial centre provides good amenities such as shops, bars and restaurants.The town of Ayamonte is a few minutes' drive away - a lovely place to wander around with plenty of tiled benches, wall icons and interesting buildings to photograph. La Plaza de la Laguna is particularly pretty. You can also drive over the border and be in Praia Verde, Portugal, in 30 minutes.
This is a pretty, well-kept complex set in attractive gardens with a water feature and children's play area. There is a fabulous pool and a smaller one for children.
The apartment was extremely well equipped with every need met, also included were the use of the bikes and golf equipment. The balcony is huge with the option to dine el fresco should you wish, whilst enjoying the breath taking view.
I particularly liked the generous amount of wardrobe and storage space,
To summarise the accomodation, location and weather were faultless and I hope to visit again.
We were amazed when we saw the view from the terrace overlooking a nature reserve direct to a view of Portugal over the river. The apartment is set in beautiful well kept gardens with a splendid large swimming pool and tennis courts. So peaceful to sit and relax in. The apartment is tastefully furnished and very well equipped. The gated complex.makes this a safe environment for children and adults alike. It is situated in close proximity to the unspoilt beach and marina in Isla Canela and the picturesque town of Ayamonte. Myself, my wife and daughter have already booked again to return next year. I cannot recommend this highly enough.
We visited the beautiful location of Isla Canela in July. This apartment was everything we needed to make our stay perfect.
The apartment is in a fantastic location and with the kind use of the bikes it was only a short 10 minute ride to the beautiful beach which has a great selection of tapas restaraunts or 20 minutes to Ayamonte. From Ayamonte is it only a short ferry ride across to Portugal which is a must do!
The pool area is very large and clean and perfect for relaxing, swimming and sunbathing with loungers available.
My favourite facility available was definitely the paddle tennis courts with the owners kindly leaving bats and balls available to use.
The apartment was very large and clean with fantastic cooking facilities and a beautiful terrace with spectacular views and sunsets to enjoy a meal and some drinks on.
I look forward to returning to this fantastic apartment in the future.
Fantastic spacious apartment in a great location. Fell in love with Isla Canela and Ayamonte on this being our first trip to this area. It was the perfect base to explore the delights of both Spain and Portugal. The apartment had everything you could possibly need to make the most of your trip. Was excellent to have two bicycles available to use free of charge. The beach was only a short 5 minute cycle away and one of the best beaches I have ever been to! Lovely soft sand and pleasant sea temperature.
The large pool area which was quiet and peaceful, it was kept immaculate and plenty of comfy sun loungers and there was a lifeguard on duty too.
I also played a round of golf on the Isla Canela course, it was a real bonus having a set clubs in the apartment that were available to use for no cost too. This saved the hassle of bringing clubs or the cost of hiring them here.
The views from the large terrace were absolutely stunning! It was a lovely area to eat meals or relax and enjoy a drink or two :)
The owners have went the extra mile to make to provide everything possible to make your trip as relaxing and enjoyable as possible. I cannot wait to return back!
We spent a wonderful week here in April. What can I say, the apartment is finished to a very high standard and fully equipped with everything you would possibly need, right down to cycles and golf clubs at your disposal. On the spacious terrace, I spent many an hour enjoying the stunning views and the spectacular sunsets. The terrace comes fully furnished with an sitting area to relax in, with separate table and chairs for dining and also sun loungers should you fancy an after lunch siesta. I had a lovely, leisurely cycle down to the sandy beach of Isla Canela which only took 5 minutes, where I found miles and miles of unspoiled coastline. I can not fault the contact of the owners and my holiday was a pleasure, so much so, I hope to return again soon.
