The following recreational activities are available at, or within
easy reach of El Chorrillo: Nature, Birding. and Wildlife
Half the 18, 000 sq. m of El Chorrillo is covered with natural growth
of trees and bushes - a tiny nature reserve in itself, harboring
several species of resident birds and small mammals, untouched except
for paths cut through for visitors to enjoy. In Spring and Autumn
there are spectacular displays of wild flowers. There are several
National Parks and Nature Reserves in easy reach, including Coto
de Donana, the largest National Park in Europe. We are also on one
of the main bird migration routes. Nature and birding guided walks
and tours can be arranged.
Hiking and Walking
We have good short walks in and around the grounds of El Chorrillo,
and good hikes and walks along the coast, in the neighborhood, in
the nearby National Parks and Sierras.
Vejer, 6 km away by road, is a picturesque “white pueblo”
town, perched on top of a hill, with wide views to the Sierras on
one side and to the Atlantic beaches on the other, full of whitewashed
houses lining narrow streets, and historic buildings. Cadiz, Ronda
and Seville (historic buildings and museums), Jerez (sherry and
horses), Tarifa (windsurfing), Bolonia (roman ruins) and many other
places of interest, are all in easy driving distance.
If you are a golfer and you want to play championship courses the
Cadiz area of the Costa de la Luz is the perfect venue. There are
eleven outstanding golf courses less than an hours drive away from
Finca El Chorrillo, and four within half an hour.
Horseback riding can also be arranged nearby.
If you prefer to take things easy, there are many wonderful beaches
a few minutes away by car, where the sand is golden, the Atlantic
Ocean is clean and the long wide beaches have a gentle incline to
the sea, making them safe, quiet and beautiful.
Shopping & Eating Out
For retail therapy, we have shops, markets, supermarkets and hypermarkets,
all close by. And if all that shopping makes you hungry, there are
four good restaurants and bars within 2km, and many others not much
to get there
