Wonderful beaches of golden sand and beautiful shells, sand dunes, coves, low hills and orange groves equal a holiday away from the hustle and bustle. In Costa de la Luz - the Coast of Light, where the sun shines 310 days a year.

Costa de la Luz extends along the Atlantic, from the Strait of Gibraltar to the Portuguese border. It is primarily located in the province of Huelva, on the south coast of the Spanish region of Andalusia, which offers everything that is most commonly associated with Spain. Wide and sandy beaches, friendly and professional service, as well as an excellent standard of hotels makes it difficult to leave this unique place. In Andalusia you can find everything that is the best and most interesting in Spain: great food - delicious tapas and "jamón iberico" ham, the most famous sherry from Jerez de la Frontera. Flamenco and castanets were born here, the tradition of folk entertainment and fetes originate from here, even the corrida.

The coast is more peaceful compared to the vibrant Costa del Sol, there aren't endless rows of hotels and crowds on the beaches. Controlling the purchase of land and investments causes that only here, especially in the province of Huelva, where the hotels offered by us are located, can you still find endless, and wild coasts, with plenty of golden sand beaches. Driving along the Costa de la Luz coastline, we have the impression that we are in another, better, world - the small green hills, orange groves, Storks' nests, numerous coves and wild dunes. The wonderful climate with an average annual temperature of 23°C promotes relaxation, away from the hustle and bustle of big cities and crowds on the beaches.
