Excellent!

  • 5 out of 5
Great Escapes is a beautiful place to stay and perfect when you are looking for a comfortable retreat and some digitial detoxification. The location is fantastic. In a nature park - with just the sound of some distant cowbells and the occasional donkey - but close to beaches, restaurants and Tarifa.

We both had a brilliant week in chalet Uno. The charming chalet was spotlessly clean, very well equipped and really spacious. Jenny and Brian have thought of everything to make their guests as comfortable as possible. Every day we had breakfast on the veranda and dinner on the large covered terrace. From both places we had an excellent view of the sea and Africa. The chalets are located in a large and beautifully maintained garden with a nice swimming pool and lots of lovely details. Every chalet has ample privacy.

Jenny and Brian are excellent hosts, very friendly and helpful with queries and knowledgable about local places, routes, and restaurants. They made it clear they were available when we needed anything whilst always maintaining a discreet presence. We appreciated being able to stay a few extra nights at short notice (before the agreed arrival date). As chalet Uno was already occupied, we spent those nights in chalet Tres, where we had a perfect time as well.

We had a very relaxing stay and would certainly recommend the chalet to all our friends and family.

Thanks for a great time and hope to return!

loved it!

  • 5 out of 5
This is the perfect place for some time away from the stresses of modern life; a striking setting with comfortable accommodation bathed in sunshine and cooled by the sea breeze.
Rugged countryside surrounds the chalets with common land grazed by donkeys, cattle, horses and the marvellous black pigs. Birds circle the crags high above you and more familiar sparrows and blackbirds flit about the varied plants in the well kept grounds of Great Escapes.
My chalet was spacious, clean and laid out thoughtfully. Ample running water - hot and cold - with ready cooled bottled water for drinking in the fridge. Well equipped kitchen and bar-b-que area. There are comfy chairs on the deck and recliners on the patio but my favourite place to sit was on the beautiful terrace with its stone floor, large wooden table and sturdy pergola draped in vines.
You could see glimpses of two of the other chalets and occasionally other guests might wander past on their way to the pool or away to the beach or into town but the atmosphere was of privacy and tranquility. As a single traveller I can reassure anyone that you feel secure here.
The owners are present on site in their own home and have a wealth of knowledge about the area's attractions. I found them to be attentive but not intrusive and interested in a range of topics if you felt like a chat.
I enjoyed Tarifa's whitewashed shops in narrow streets and squares, particularly the fish market and small boutiques. I had the luxury of a friend fluent in Spanish guiding me about but a few basic phrases will be all you need to get by. The day time atmosphere is laid back with good food and coffee available plus bars that are well frequented at night.
20 minutes away, Bolonia beach is an amazing place to visit. With fine sand and good swimming it can be a little busy on weekends (get there early) but it is worth the effort. It is situated in a national park with Roman ruins in the dunes and an adjacent archaeological museum Baelo Claudia housed in the most remarkable modern building. Those who appreciate unique architecture should see this place, I loved it and it is free to get in if you have an EU passport.
The mixture of personal space for reading, yoga practice and campo walks was perfect for me. I can not think of anything that I missed while I was there. When I got home, I felt as if I had been away for months.
I hope to return sometime and would recommend this experience wholeheartedly.

Wonderful New Year at Great Escapes!

  • 5 out of 5
A great way to see in 2013. Chalet uno is wonderful and cosy with a beautiful terrace from which to enjoy the sea views and Brian and Jenny made our stay as comfortable and special as possible.
We had heating provided and also lovely throws to use on the terrace as the winter evenings can feel cooler, especially when the days are so lovely and warm. The terrace was decorated so we felt very festive and we made the most of the restaurants in Tarifa town and visited Bolonia beach on New Year's Day!

It was special to climb the sand dunes and take in the views across to Africa from one of the best beaches in Europe and just a short drive from Great Escapes.

We felt truly relaxed and ready to take on the New Year and for me one of the best bits was no wifi! My other half spent time talking to me and we read books from the great up to date selection in the chalet.

I can recommend Great Escapes to couples wanting to escape the ordinary and the noisy. I love the cow bells and the birds. The hammock is blissful.
We will come again and again!

Wonderful break, wonderful hosts

  • 5 out of 5
We spent a fantastic week at Great Escapes staying in Chalet Uno. Brian & Jenny were wonderful hosts providing us with a lot of advice and information on the local area from restaurants and places to eat, to day trips and great beaches.

The Chalet was wonderful and everything we could have hoped for with a spacious BBQ area, sun deck and a well stocked kitchen finished off with some quirky pictures, poems and quotations on the walls! Perfect for a couple who want a relaxing break. The views out across the countryside to the sea and Morocco beyond were incredible, particularly in the mornings and early evening. Finally, there was a lovely pool on-site for cooling off after a day at the beach!

The chalet is a few kilometres from Tarifa itself so a car is recommended, but once in situ it is easy to catch a bus or taxi along the coast road or take a short walk to the local beaches down the hill if you don't want to drive.

We will certainly be recommending Great Escapes to our friends and may well be back ourselves in the future!

Owner's Response: Great to get such a positive review from a lovely young couple.
A car is defintely recommended as the nearest shopping is in Tarifa but the nearest beaches are easy to walk to and there are also restaurants within walking distance at Los Lances beach.

Wunderschön

  • 5 out of 5
Unser Urlaub bei Jenny und Brian im Chalet Uno war einfach nur traumhaft. Wir hatten zuvor all die positiven und tollen Erfahrungsberichte gelesen, dementsprechend groß waren unsere Erwartungen und die Vorfreude auf Tarifa. Als es dann endlich soweit war und man uns herzlich im Great Escapes willkommen hieß, wurden wir in keiner Weise enttäuscht. Es war genauso wie wir es uns vorgestellt hatten. Eigentlich noch besser!!! Für uns war es der perfekte Urlaub. Ausschlafen. In Ruhe auf der wunderschönen Terrasse mit Blick aufs Meer und Marokko frühstücken. In der Hängematten dösen/lesen. Zu den traumhaften, weitläufigen und nie überfüllten Stränden fahren, um dort wieder zu ruhen oder ewig spazieren zu gehen. Sich ab und an in dem kleinen, super sauberen und erfrischenden Pool abkühlen und abends auf der Terrasse grillen und sich erneut an dem herrlichen Ausblick erfreuen. Wir fanden es sehr schön das Tarifa und Umgebung sowohl ein Ort zum herrlich faulenzen ist, bei Bedarf aber unheimlich viele Möglichkeiten für allerlei Unternehmungen bietet. Zum Glück ist Tarifa von Massentourismus und Bettenhochburgen verschont geblieben. Ein sehr sympathisches und relaxtes Fleckchen Erde . Jenny und Brian sind unglaublich hilfsbereit und möchten, dass die schönste Zeit des Jahres so angenehm und komfortabel wie möglich für einen ist. Es ist ihnen gelungen.
Wir waren so begeistert von unserem diesjährigen Urlaubsdomizil, dass wir schon unseren nächsten Aufenthalt im Great Escape planen. Vorfreude ist die schönste Freude!!!

A great escape you will never forget!

  • 5 out of 5
We spent two weeks in Chalet Uno and enjoyed everything. The photos on the website already gave us a good idea but in real it is even better. The view from the terras is amazing, during day and nighttime (with all the lights a cross Tarifa and Morocco).

Our daughter, she is five, loved the pool and the garden. She also felt very welcomed by Brian and Jenny, the owners. They were a big help with all our questions and needs.

The Chalet has everything you need, it is very clean and pleasant.

The distance to Tarifa is only a few minutes by car, as well as the beach with all different beach clubs. You can walk but we did not because of our little daughter.
We spent most of the time at Valdevaqueros / Club Mistral. We went to Cadiz, Vejer and the boat trip to see Dolfins and Pilot Whales.

Overall a great place to stay and enjoy at Great Escapes! We will come back somewhere in the future... definitely.

In Holland we say Tot ziens!

Punta Paloma offers pure white sand dunes and exceptional beaches. The towns of Zahara de los Atunes and Vejer de la Frontera are easily accessible white villages and offer local Spanish flavour and cuisine. Jerez de la Frontera offers the Andalucian equestrian spectacle as well as the opportunity to sample excellent tapas. Birdwatching is another bonus in the area as is whalewatching,

Guests at Great Escapes can horseride, do yoga, kite and wind surf, as well as diving. The local natural park is wonderful for mountain bikes and fabulous walks.

Notes:
Chalet Uno has two fans and four windows with mosquito blinds built in. It is strictly non smoking inside the chalet but covered ashtrays are provided on the terrace/balcony. The grounds at Great Escapes are so designed that all 4 chalets are detached and independent of one another, thereby respecting guests' space and privacy at all times. The outside pool is shared by the chalets but the beauty of the beaches means it's rare all the chalets want to use the pool at the same time. As we have 4 chalets, we do not encourage guests to bring back visitors as we value the peace and tranquillity of all our guests. PLEASE NOTE - the facilities at Great Escapes are for the use of guests only.
