The villa was very spacious & quite quirky in its decor. A well-equipped kitchen with good quality appliances, plenty of seating & dining areas inside & out. Lovely large bedrooms with comfy beds & en-suite bathrooms. Several beautifully-maintained garden areas so lots of space for large groups not to be on top of each other. Sandy beach close by with sky full of kites from the many kite-surfers. A couple of nice beach bars about 10-15 mins walk along the sand - it’s windy but that’s refreshing & quite necessary! Tarifa is a lovely town with great chic boutiques & tapas restaurants. It has an African/hippy vibe - cool but not full of posers! Unfortunately the natural pool was not really for us. Several of our party did venture into the ‘black lagoon’’ but we tended to spend more time at the beach or in Tarifa. That said we did have a great week & everyone (there were 11 in our party) loved the villa, the grounds & the location.
We spent ten days at El Chapparo and the only issue was the road, but if you go slow its okay. The property is situated in beautiful countryside amongst the cork oaks with many wild flowers. We enjoyed pleasant walks in the hills. The property is lovely with fantastic views down the valley to the sea and even across it to North Africa. There is a secluded seating area which is perfect for watching the eagles and vultures as well as the domestic animals from the nearby farm. It is so peaceful, the only noise is the bells on the goats which is just lovely. There is a log burner and wood is supplied, so on a couple of cool evenings we had a fire, which makes the bedroom in the loft area very warm. During our stay we had several walks in Tarifa, along the beach and round the old town. There are three good supermarkets in the town so plenty options for shopping.
We explored the local area and would definately reccomend it if you are looking for a holiday away from busy resorts
