For birders, there are many storks about and I have seen Marsh harriers, Booted, Bonelli's and short-toed eagles as well as many other raptors. This area is one of the main migration routes for birds crossing the Straits of Gibraltar.
Furthermore, there is a colony of extremely rare Northern Bald Ibis at nearby La Barca de Vejer. It is about 6kms away by road, or 3kms as the crow (or ibis) flies, occasionally they fly over Casa Clara.
Very rarely, in winter, I have also seen flamingos.
Also, the springtime wild flowers displays every April and May are spectacular.
This self catering accommodation is in the small village of El Soto, which has two traditional Spanish bars, one of which has a small restaurant.
Casa Clara is in the small village of El Soto, nearby Montenmedio has several restaurants as well as a golf course and in February the "Sunshine Tour" with around 1,500 horses competing in one of the busiest equestrian events in Europe. The event lasts for over five weeks, with people competing from all over the world. The first two weeks are dressage, followed by show jumping.
The rest of the year is very quiet however, perfect for a romantic break, or as a base to drive to the beaches and many sights, or enjoy the bars and restaurants of the nearby resorts.
The changeover day is Saturday, although outside of peak season we are flexible. The house is available for rent the whole year round.
The fabulous white village of Vejer is around ten minutes drive away and Barbate´s beaches are 15 Kms away. It is only a little further to the beaches of El Palmar and Caños De Meca , whilst the windsurfers paradise of Tarifa at the far end of the Costa De La Luz is a half hour away.
Casa Clara is about 1 hour’s drive from the airports of Jerez and Gibraltar, while Malaga and Seville are around 2 hours away; airport transfers can be arranged as well as any excursions', but car rental is strongly recommended.
