This fabulous Tarifeña home was built in 1893, it is now available to rent by the room or as a whole. All the very special original features have been preserved– marble floors and staircases, retro hydraulic tiles, high wooden beamed ceilings, large and spacious living space and bedrooms, balconies, terraces, wooden windows and shutters and not forgetting the Cool Moorish Patio…
The interior courtyard is a typical feature in Al-Andalus properties and whilst once upon a time this space would have been open to the elements, it is a now a covered glass skylight which allows the property to enjoy the lights for which this area has become famous.
There is accommodation for up to 22 people in 7 different sections. Everyone has access to the communal facilities of the Kitchen, Large chill out sitting and dining room, Moorish Patio and the 125m2 Roof Terrace complete with views out to North Africa and the Straits of Gibraltar.
The feel of the property is that of being in one’s home and we hope to welcome all ages to enjoy this unique property. Riad Lolita is positioned just inside the Castle Walls of the Historic Old Town, 10m from the Puerta de Jerez Archway with the best tapas bar literally 50m from the property, the pastry shop next door and the popular Calle de Nuestra Senora de La Luz with Tarifa’s blooming boutique shopping is a glance out the kitchen window. Everything is close at hand, including the beach at 800m, this is for people looking to learn about real Andalus living and hoping to find out some of Tarifa's best kept secrets …
Let us show you a small tour of the different rooms and facilities:
This is the largest bedroom in the house, of approximately 50m2 with en-suite complete bathroom. It is completely open plan with its own independent access on the street. Access from within the house to this room is off the Moorish Patio.
Decoration is Moroccan with a wrought iron sofa (converts in to a single bed 90 x200cm), large coffee table and stunning decorative cushions for sitting on.
This suite located on the ground floor of riad lolita, off the moorish patio, is divided into two rooms, the bedroom and the sitting room the approximate size of the two rooms is 40m2.
This room is all beiges and creams.. very peaceful and zen.
The double bedroom is ensuite with a shower, wc and sink. There is a mini bar fridge and air conditioning. There is also a marble circular table to work from if necessary.
Two double bedrooms on the first floor, which can be rented independently or together at a lesser rate. There is a corridor that adjoins the rooms, but if rented independently the rooms also have their own privacy. The selling feature for these two bedrooms is the magnificent hydraulic Moroccan-tiled floor and the bay window in south room and the balcony in north.
Beds are 135cm x 200cm.
North room has two entrances, one off the main courtyard on the first floor or via the adjoining corridor. The bathrooms have a shower, wc and sink.
An original proposition was created at riad lolita with the family suite, as so many of the places we have wanted to stay over the years with our children are not child friendly. Riad Lolita is absolutely child friendly :)
The family suite on the first floor opens on to a small sitting room with sofa, arm chair and two stools. Off the sitting room is the master bedroom a double with a 150cm x 200cm double bed with a small balcony looking down on to calle general vives. The triple bedroom is off the sitting room to the right, with three single beds and a desk. Once again there are shutters that open on to a small balcony on to calle general vives.
The complete bathroom is shared between the two rooms.
Located on the first floor, Nicolas' room is the most economical room as it is an interior bedroom. There is no air conditioning, but they have a fan that can be used and they will be installing a roof fan shortly. This room enjoys its natural light from the glass bedroom doors and balcony doors in the bathroom that look down on to the Moorish patio. The advantage of being an interior bedroom is that there is no street noise.
More spacious bathroom than north and south room, with wc, sink and shower (with a seat).
