Zum Entspannen verführt - Tarifa, Chalet Tres!

5 of 5
Zu zweit verbrachten wir einen wirklich schönen Urlaub im Chalet 3. Die ganze Anlage ist sehr schön gestaltet. Auf dem Weg zum Chalet geht man einen Hügel hinunter, passiert Chalet 1 und zwei, muss über einen kleinen Graben und steht auch schon am Chalet 3. Auf dem Weg entdeckt man die vielen Details der Anlage: Lebensweisheiten, Hochbeete, einen Maulwurf - nicht umlaufen - und natürlich den Pool. Das Chalet selbst besteht aus einem Schlafraum, wo auch der Kühlschrank, ein Ventilator, das Doppelbett mit Moskitonetz und Aufbewahrungsmöglichkeiten sind. Koffer verstaut man am besten unter dem Bett. Links auf dem Bild des Chalets sieht man die kleine Veranda, wo man sehr gut essen, spielen und lesen kann. Mittig zwischen Grillstation und Schlafraum ist das Badezimmer mit der Dusche. Eigentlich wollten wir in unserem Urlaub unglaublich viel am Strand liegen. Leider war der Wind so stark, dass wir lieber abends an den Strand gingen und tagsüber auf der Anlage oder mit einem Städtetrip verbrachten. Wenn man gut zu Fuß ist, kann man von Great Escapes aus, den ganzen Hügel erkunden und auch zum Strand spazieren. Es ist gerade mal den Weg hinunter. Die Anlage ist winddicht eingezäunt, wodurch leider die Aussicht etwas versperrt ist. Beim abendlichen Grillen und direkt vor der Ausfahrt bzw. hinter dem Chalet hat man aber einen gigantischen Blick bis Marokko. Wir arrangierten die Liegen tagsüber um das Chalet herum, sodass man ein wenig im Schatten liegen konnte - hatten uns am ersten Tag (Strand Bolognia - wunderschön) direkt verbrannt. Zur Abkühlung ging es in den Pool. Das Wasser des Pools brannte uns etwas in den Augen. Trotzdem kann man darin planschen, tauchen oder Wasserball spielen. Strandzubehör muss man auch nicht kaufen. Hinter dem Regal links im Schlafraum, verstecken sich mehrere Sonnenschirme und auch Schläger für Strand- oder Poolball. Es wurden ausreichend Handtücher, Zewa und Toillettenpapierrollen zur Verfügung gestellt. Genauso gibt es Feuerzeug, einen Gasgrill, Herdplatten, Geschirr und jede Menge Teelichter. Probleme mit Mücken hatten wir keine. Nur ein wenig mit den Ameisen, die unser Körnerbaguette wegschleppen wollten (Am besten aufhängen oder in den Kühlschrank). Obwohl Chalet 4 direkt neben Chalet 3 steht, hat man nicht das Gefühl, dass die Nachbarn einen zu nah sind. Wir konnten hervorragend und ausgiebig entspannen und uns erholen nach unserem stressigen Alltag und werden wieder kommen.

A truely 'Great Escape!

5 of 5
A truely wonderful place to escape. We stayed for two weeks and thoughly enjoyed every moment. Brian and Jenny were fantastic hosts and made us feel right at home immediately. The terrace made a fantastic kitchen, dining room and lounge - the Weber grill was brilliant for all our cooking needs. Decided not to take a car and we didn't miss it- the Summer bus picks up regularly at the end of the road and takes 15 minutes to get to Tarifa town. Jenny kindly offered trips to The supermarket in her car - what more do you need? We Are already planning our return trip! Thanks for the wonderful holiday and great conversation!
