Costa De La Luz Hotels

Mini guide to Costa De La Luz

     

Known as the 'coast of light', the Costa de la Luz is situated in the Andalucian southwest corner of Spain facing the Atlantic Ocean. This 250-kilometre coastline consists of long golden beaches and lovely fishing villages in beautiful surroundings.

The largest and most important cities in the region are Cadiz and Huelva. Cadiz boasts a magnificent 18th century baroque cathedral, containing the tomb of Cadiz-born composer, Manuel de Falla, lying in its splendid crypt. Huelva is famous for its monastery, La Rabida, from which Columbus set sail on his 1492 journey to America. The low key tourist attraction has a landscaped nature reserve and modern amphitheatre and is just 8 kms outside Huelva.

Costa de la Luz is a lot less developed than its lively neighbours and is a place where one can truly unwind and soak up the atmosphere. Spend your days listening to jazz in 15th century monasteries and take mud baths beneath the cliffs or watch pink flamingos flying to Africa. On a clear day the view stretches right across to the great continent.

From horseback rambles to yoga in the Art y Vida Hotel, or a round on Europe's most picturesque golf course; quality accommodation and restaurants, cafés and bars, the Costa de la Luz is not short on style.

For one of the most romantic drives in Europe, head for the Facinas Road. Once a Roman highway, it winds through the Parque Natural de los Alcornocales, a vast protected cork forest. Lying in between Cadiz and Huelva on the coast is the beautiful stretch of undeveloped wilderness of the Coto Donana nature reserve, home to hundreds of birds, deer and other wildlife.

The Costa de la Luz can be reached by the A4 and A49 highways, and by rail. Seville Airport is the closest to the region and receives regular European flights. Shuttles and taxis can be arranged for the short transfer to your destination.
