The Experience

The eccentricity of the house (its surprising layout, its nooks and crannies, its steps up and down) seems in perfect keeping with this little riverside village. And even in August it is peaceful, the only real sound that of the churches’ bells: Spanish on one side, Portuguese on the other. Casa Verde’s covered patio is a blissful place to be as you watch the boats float up and down; find a leafy inner courtyard too, a terrace among the rooftops, a sunbathing deck, a hammock for snoozing and a private plunge pool to chill in. There’s also an outdoor cinema with a good choice of DVDs. River boating, kayaking and swimming are the activities here – and a zip wire across the river, from one country to the next! Sporty friends and families with older kids will adore it. Inside: comfortable, sofas, beautiful decorative tiles, an elegant kitchen excellently equipped (note the ice cream maker and juicer), and a dining room with an outdoor fire. The four bedrooms are all in different parts of the house and each are en suite. Fresh flowers welcome you, along with coffee, tea, oranges, wine, cake, and logs for wintery stays.

Casa Verde is a beautifully situated villa in the heart of Sanlúcar. The luxury accommodation, at an affordable price, overlooks the river and benefits from amazing sunsets accompanied with the chiming of local church bells ....from both Spain and uniquely Portugal. The relaxing pace of life is magnified by the gentle flow of the river, separating the two countries, where the local water taxi service provides a useful crossing. Casa Verde provides an exceptional base to escape from mundane tourism with the added benefit of glorious sunshine for our stay.

Casa Verde is an absolutely stunning house in the middle of the small town of Sanlucar de Guadiana. With so many different spaces both outdoors and inside it's literally possible to get lost in there! Plenty of room for bigger parties. The small pool, the outdoor shower and especially the cinema-experience under a starry sky were some of the highlights. The surrounding area provides many good hikes and runs, and the free padel court was a great bonus as well. All in all a lovely stay in a lovely place, can't recommend enough if you're looking to relax and unwind!

We stayed at Casa Verde in the second week of October and the weather was perfect - not too hot, not too cold. The house itself is a gem, beautifully fitted out and cleverly laid out. I loved all the little corners I could escape to with a book; but enjoyed coming back to the big communal spaces for food and drink and chat. Sanlucar is a charming village and the zip-wire a must. It's 16 kms from the main road so feels completely cut off but is a thriving little community. We loved our stay and would recommed the beach bar in Alcoutim and the fantastic winery of Delea a Marca just 25kms away.

What a fantastic break! The house is quirky (in a good way) and its location, overlooking the river, is a delight - especially at night when seated on the terrace as you have a lovely view of the lights of the small village on the opposite side. There is a zip-wire nearby (not too scary) which takes you across the river from Spain to Portugal. Sanlucar is small and picturesque but it is on the side of a hill so there is a bit of climbing, The locals are friendly. Plenty to do. Can thoroughly recommend the whole experience.

Eight good friends looking to catch some late sun. Sanluca was new to us but what a find. Casa Verde was v.clean and v.tasteful. Each day began and ended, seated on the terrace, with morning coffee and sundowners, whilst taking in the breathtaking view. Eating out was so cheap but check out Remy’s general store, she has everything! Highlights: the cross-border zip-wire, a tour of Delea a Marca Vineyard (Villablanca) and our last night at the villa, watching a dvd under the stars with wine, tapas and jasmine. It was the perfect end to a great get-away. Thank you Casa Verde, we won’t forget you.

Tracey, Tunbridge Wells

What a lovely place to stay. The house is beautifully presented and well equipped with everything needed for a relaxed and enjoyable stay. There are great walks in the surrounding countryside and across the river in Portugal, lovely sandy beaches about 45 minutes drive away and charming little villages to visit. On the other hand the view from the terrace is spectacular so there is no real need to go anywhere!

Sharon, Norwich

Delightful, characterful Casa, spacious and comfortable, a home from home. Lovely to cook in the kitchen and eat on the terrace watching riverlife go by, listening to the cicadas and the church bells. A splendind spot to relax and the area is also full of variety to explore: river beaches, boat trips, Ayamonte old town cafe culture, endless sandy beaches at Isla Cristina, Portuguese hill towns, nature and architecture, two different languages and cultures. Thoroughly recommended.


Beautiful Casa in a delightful village. Unspoilt, friendly, gentle pace of life. Ideal for that breakaway from the frenzy of the daily grind of the world. Spacious house with all facilities needed for winding down and seeing what is important in life. Loved the house, the village, the people and especially the terrace to view the river and hear the sounds of life and music from across the river. Hope to return.


An absolute gem of a property. A real escape in a quite magical location where you can pick oranges from the trees and take a boat across the river to Portugal. We loved relaxing on the candlelit terrace in the warm evenings, listening to live music from across the water. The children adored taking the dinghy across the river for lunch and to the nearby secluded river beach. The house itself is wonderfully quirky and beautifully laid out. Great tapas from the bar opposite too. We loved it.

Local points of interest from Val Woodhouse

  • The lovely river Guadiana which winds its way between Portugal and Spain, is always changing, always moving and is a place to dream as you bob down the river in our dinghy or in a kayak.
  • Climb up to the castle in the village for the most fantastic view, and then take the thrilling ride on the zipwire across to Portugal. Better still you arrive there 59 minutes earlier than when you left!
  • Enjoying a drink - particularly a gin and tonic (they are huge!) - at the beach bar in the village and trying some of the tasty tapas whilst watching the reflections on the water. Very cool!.
  • Staying in March and November and finding that it is so warm that a T-shirt is still enough to wear even outside at 11 o'clock at night!
  • Ambling down the river path to the finca, picking the oranges and filling a big bag, to then walk back, squeezing them to make juice and ice-cream. Very very satisfying.
  • Finding one of the many fiestas taking place in the village, watching the donkeys race through the narrow streets, barbeque of sardines and a dance with the locals. Or watch the Virgin del Carmen statue cross the river and back. That is special, indeed
