Description of the house
Hacienda Don Esteban overlooks the delta of the Barbate River. The extraordinary modern design architecture of the Hacienda is harmoniously integrated into the environment. All rental apartments have fine wooden beams at the ceiling, creating a pleasant and warm ambience.
The detached house Al Sur, accommodating 6 people, is also a holiday let and is positioned on a somewhat higer level on the estate. Levante and Poniente, 2 detached holiday apartments for 4 people, are in the gardens adjacent to each other and at a lower level. With central heating (Levante and Poniente) and under-floor heating (Al Sur) the houses are also very comfortable in autumn and winter.
According to the legend, the Moorish army commander conquered this area in a battle in 711, which paved the way from Morocco to the Iberian Peninsula. The river that flows through this nature park, is at a few kilometres from sea. Otters and osprey have their hunting ground here, whilst it’s a resting place for migratory birds. A colony of storks make their nests in the pine trees on the hills.
On a clear day you can see the hills around Tanger and the Rif Mountain Range beyond.

Vejer de la Frontera, a 10 minute drive, is a well preserved Andalusian white village with much Moorish architecture, whitewashed streets, restaurants, intimate bars and shops.
Between Zahara de los Atunes and the resort of Conil are miles long yellow-golden beaches. Tuna is being caught in the traditional way of the Almadraba and is tastily served in the numerous fish restaurants. If you can, do visit Los Alcornocales Nature Park with its colonies of vultures and petroglyphs; Gibraltar with its famous monkeys; the restored Roman town of Baelo along the wonderful beach of Bonia; and of course, Cádiz with its seafood restaurants and numerous bars within easy distance from the house.
Hacienda Don Esteban is an ideal holiday destination for hikers, bikers, nature enthusiasts and action seeking visitors. Golf course and horse riding centre Montenmedio is accessible in only 5 minutes.
