El Armador Casa Palacio


Cádiz

Cádiz is een bijzondere stad met een bijzondere uitstraling.

Er zijn plekken waar je direct voelt dat je in een zuidspaanse stad rondloopt maar er zijn ook plekken waar je je bijna in Havana op Cuba waant.
De gelijkenis is dan ook frappant, er zijn zelfs speelfilms opgenomen die op Cuba spelen.

Maar de tapasbars en spaanse restaurantjes zijn er toch wel in de meerderheid en overal wordt je omringd door de levendige spanjaarden dus je zal je toch niet snel overzees voelen.

Midden in het centrum van deze levendige stad hebben we dit recent geopend en kleinschalige appartementencomplex gevonden waar.
De 9 appartementen en studio´s zijn in deze 18e eeuwse casa gevestigd wat veel ruimte betekent in het pand.

Statige brede trappen voeren je naar je ruime appartement of studio welke van de zaken zijn voorzien die het plaatje complete maken. Zitkamer, kitchenette en goede bedden. Ook voor families zijn er geschikte appartementen met 2 slaapkamers beschikbaar.

Je kunt natuurlijk zelf aan de slag gaan in je (eenvoudige) kitchenette maar een zeer ruime keus aan restaurantjes en barretjes zitten bij je om de hoek. En ook je ontbijt kun je makkelijk scoren bij één van de buurtbakkertjes die een terrasje voor de winkel hebben staan! Local zijn met de lokalen, dát is leuk!

Een verblijf in Cádiz is tevens uitstekend te combineren met een dagje strand, op 10 minuten lopen kun je je strandlakens uitspreiden!

Minpunten:
• Parkeren alleen op een openbare parkeerplaats in de stad.

Pluspunten:
• Prima verzorgde appartementen welke ruim zijn bemeten.
• Pand dateert uit de 18e eeuw, prachtige details.
• Centrale ligging t.o.v. stad en strand.

surrounding area

Cádiz
The modern part of Cádiz is a busy port. A visit to this city would not be complete without a walk along the quays. The old town is contained by fortifications that rise up from the sea. Within the ring of walls and fortresses there are houses and palaces from the 18th and 19th century, side by side with run-down quarters and squares with plenty of bar and cafes.
The city’s sights include the Castillo de Santa Catalina, a bulwark right on the tip of the small peninsula. In the centre you will find the cathedral, Catedral Nueva, and the Museo de Cádiz on one of the city’s nicest squares, the Plaza de Mina. And then there are a number of interesting churches, the baroque church Oratorio de San Felipe Neri and the Oratorio de la Santa Cueva.

Active
There are plenty of options in the area if you want to be more active, like playing a round of golf, horse riding, walking and cycling.

Family
The beaches near Cádiz are the most suited for swimming.
Between Cádiz and El Puerto de Santa María you will find the Aqua Sherry water park with 17 different slides.
In Cádiz you can explore the tourist centre in a horse-drawn carriage.
You can also head for the zoo in Jerez de la Frontera, or check out that city's horse riding school.
In Tarifa you can catch a boat that will take you whale and dolphin spotting. In August and September you can even spot orcas here.

Nature
The Parque Nacional de Coto Doñana on the other side of the water can be reached by boat from Sanlúcar de Barrameda (54km; 55min).
This park is one of Europe’s largest swamp lands. This area is especially important for birds. Over 250 bird species have been spotted here, half of which come here to over-winter, such as the spoonbill, stork and the particular favourite of most visitors, the flamingo.
The best time of year to visit this park is winter or spring. In the summer and autumn the swamps are dry, although that is when visitors get excited about spotting deer, boar, buffalos and otters. With a good guide and some luck, you might even spot a lynx.
Between Tarifa and Arcos de la Frontera you will find Los Alcornocales nature reserve. This area is made up by cork tree forests, easily recognized by the painted trees.

The following villages/towns in the area are definitely worth a visit:
Jerez de la Frontera (40km; 40min):
Jerez is the sherry capital of the world. A tour of one of its bodegas (Sandeman, Pedro Domecq, Gonzalez Byass) is not only good fun, but you will also learn something. How to distinguish fino from amontillado or oloroso sherry, for example.
Jerez is also famous for its horse riding school, the Real Escuela Andaluza del Arte Escuestre. Apart from visiting a show here, visitors can also attend lessons and tour the stables.
Other sights include the inviting cafes on the Plaza Asunción and the old town hall from 1575, Casa de Cabildo Viejo. The San Mateo quarter is famous for its flamenco bars, and is also where you will find the official flamenco centre: Centro Andaluz de Flamenco.

Vejer de la Frontera (57km; 50min)
A lovely white village that is 10 km inland, sitting dominantly on top of a hill above the main road between Gibraltar and Cádiz. Vejer has a medieval centre, with very steep streets and alleys, beautiful whitewashed houses, ramparts and a Moorish fortress.

Medina Sidonia (47km; 50min)
The white village of Medina Sidonia (between Vejer de la Frontera and Jerez de la Frontera) is imposingly nestled on a hill surrounded by grain fields. The village’s most striking monument is the Santa María la Coronada church in the higher part of the village. This village is known for its traditional sweet biscuits with honey and almond, alfajores. You can purchase these delights from the bakery on the Plaza de España, among other places.

Arcos de la Frontera (67km; 1h):
Arcos is one of Andalucía’s finest little towns; it often serves as a base from which to explore the pueblos blancos (white villages); its entire medieval centre has been declared a Historic Monument. In Arcos you should just stroll around its cobblestone streets, past small whitewashed houses, its many squares and its patios. Arcos’ oldest building is the Castillo, a dilapidated castle that is strategically situated on top of the hill. From the town walls you have a great view of the Guadalete valley. Other sights include the churches Iglesia de Santa María de la Asunción, Iglesia de los Jesuitas and the Iglesia de San Pedro.
The town hall, the ayuntamiento on the Plaza de Cabildo, is also worth a visit because of its fine mudejar-style ceilings.

And you can, of course, head for one of these world famous cities for a day trip:
Seville (125km; 1h30min):
The capital of Andalucía is a compact city with a rich past. Most of its major sights are in or near the city centre on the Guadalquivir river’s left bank. And they also know how to party and have a good time in this city of flamenco and tapas.
As you wander through the old Jewish quarter, the Barrio Santa Cruz, through a maze of white streets and patios, you should not forget to take in the imposing cathedral, the Moorish bell tower, La Giralda, and the royal palace Real Alcázar.
You can unwind in the María Luisa park, where you can spend the hottest part of the day under orange trees and palm trees.
The museum Museo de Bellas Artes, one of Spain’s best museums of art, is a real must. And then there are its magnificent palaces and other sights, such as the Plaza de Toros de la Maestranza (bull ring); Casa de Pilatos and the Torre del Oro.
