All our life turns around History. That's why we decided to live La Casa Rosa and to share the main floor Loft with guests from all around the world. We love nature, art and music and most of all to share good moments with all the people we have around. We are lovers of history and our work turns around culture, that's why we live an Historical House typical from our area, Cadiz Bay . La Casa Rosa was the Art Studio of Luis C. Zambrano Valdivia Showroom. It was a workshops place for furniture Restoration and Painting. We decided to share La Casa Rosa as Holiday Home in 2009. Now all of that coexist with our guests . We programm Cultural Events from time to time, announced through social networks. These houses were built by transatlantic traders from 17th century. They started the business overseas with America, risking fortunes, ships and lives; an uncertain era in which even 'the sea' was not the only danger, having more as pirates and corsairs lurked the coveted spoils of goods carried. Many managed wealth and fame, leading privileged lives with good economic, social and cultural position, showing it through its magnificent houses built with the utmost refinement of the time. La Casa Rosa celebrates its 150th birthday in April 2014, and it is an honor to join the group of people who have enjoyed over its long history. It's a dare to say we are 'owners' it is anaware of the people who was here before along the centuries ... but let's say we decided to care care of it 12 years ago of this 'Jewel Historic' and delight our lives in a home full of flavor and beauty from the past.. The house underwent a respectful restoration preserving the original elements (beams, tiled floors, marble, main doors, joinery ... were preserved the undivided space in which to enjoy the true luxury of these houses: the volume ...
Conchi purchased this Apartment in 2002

Amazing house, wonderful Concha and Luis
The property is a charming space full of light, history, art and sea breeze in the beautiful city of El Puerto de Santa María, one of the jewels in Cadiz. and the hosts are simply charming people.
Perfect property and host
If you stay here you have got an onsite tour guide. Conchi is wonderful. Full of ideas about what to do where to go where to eat. She obviously loves her city. It is a great base tiggt in the centre of town 2 streets from the church square, where the bars are truly spanish. You need to speak basic Spanish as a lot of locals do not speak any english. Get a basic knowledge of food and drink and you will be ok. We are going back next year we loved it
Fantastic apartment in El Puerto
We had a fabulous stay at Conchi and Luis's apartment. Very charming and welcoming hosts who gave lots of great tips on where to visit and eat. El Puerto is a great place to be based, beautiful beaches and a short ferry to Cadiz. The apartment is full of creative touches and really well equipped.
Too short a visit.
Unique property, fabulous architecture with period design and great personal touches. Conchi and Luis very helpful, interesting and knowledgeable. The town was very interesting with all the seafaring history. The cathedral was an elaborate example of the Catholic significant and historical influence in the region. My regret is we did not spend enough time there, need at least three days just for the historical experience.
Will do it again.
Warm welcome, great host
We were warmly welcomed by Conchi to the lovely apartment in central El Puerto De Santa Maria below that of her and her family. There is lots of information about the area but Conchi herself is a mine of fascinating local knowledge which enhanced our stay enormously. She left us wine, tea and coffee, travel cards for public transport and even a pill for a whale watching trip! The apartment is exceptionally well equipped with everything you might need for a comfortable self catering break for a couple-plenty of seating, storage, coat hangers, crockery and glasses, coffee makers, a washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, even hair straighteners! It was spotlessly clean, eclectically furnished and decorated with Luis’s marine artwork. The apartment is located near the centre of town within a short walk of lots of excellent restaurants and local attractions. There so much to see and do in this authentically Spanish area and La Casa Rosa provides a perfect base from which to do it.
Lovely character one bed apartment
Clean comfortable apartment with lovely hosts in a very good location.
Conchi gave us plenty of information and spoke excellent English.
Everything you needed with a small but well equipped kitchen.
A very good bar/ restaurant 2 minutes walk.
We enjoyed visiting Cadiz on the ferry,visiting the oldest bar and trying the sherry.
We enjoyed walks along the river and to Porto Sherry along the beach watching the surfers.
The beautiful tiled floors would be perfect in the summer to keep you cool .I think maybe February not the best time to visit though it was warm enough to sit outside and enjoy tapas for lunch.
Plenty of restaurants within walking distance once we realised they didn't open until around 8 pm.
The only reason I have given 4 stars instead of 5 is there was some traffic noise at 3 am ( probably only 1 noisy motorbike ).
Thank you very much. We have had a good experience with you too. Nice special people and a pleasure to help you in anything we can.
So lovely to read you enjoyed mostly of our walks.
We cannot control if a moto goes down the main street as in a race. We hope the pedestrian project will be finished soon and the motos will be gone during the day too.
Thanks for stay with us and we'll be happy to have you again as friends.
