Cute cabins set in beautiful gardens – the perfect place to escape the rat race. It's only a short drive to the beach and nearby Tarifa - if you walk, you have to cross quite a busy road but the beach is beautiful and there are even nicer ones only a short drive away. We stayed in chalet dos and tres and they were perfect for the four of us. It's a place for adults really, but our teenage sons loved it too. Brian and Jenny can't do enough for you - lovely people.
Many thanks for your kind and positive feedback. We appreciate your time and consideration in posting this review. We do specialise in chalets for couples and as there are five chalets, we value the tranquillity of all our guests.
However, family groups with young adults can also be accommodated in separate chalets and we appreciate, as in this case, when the family group is a delight to have as guests.
The whole of the coast of light offers spectacular beaches and it is a plus to have good beaches and facilities at walking distance from the chalets.
What a lovely place, we will come back again soon.
Brain , thank for the inspirational quotes and laughs

Lovely stay in Tarifa
We are a Dutch couple that stayed in chalet dos for two weeks. We had a great time. The park was restful and we had lots of privacy. The chalet was well equiped, so that we cooked every evening in the outdoor kitchen. We had sunbeds and beach towels. The beach was a ten minutes walk. In the evening we cooled down in the quiet little pool. If you want rest and quiet, this is the place to be. We will come back!
Fabulous Family Getaway
Great Escapes was our first time as a family holiday away from a hotel environment. We booked three chalets together for me and my wife, my teenage daughters and my parents.
My parents loved chalet dos as it was open plan and airy and easily accessible from its garden area. Its outside terrace afforded us all a lovely area to sit and eat together and enjoy the beauty of the grounds and the sounds and sights of nature all around us.
Brian the owner, has created a remarkable place to totally unwind and get away from noise, traffic and all the everyday stresses of modern living.
wonderful time in chalet dos
We had a wonderful time in the chalet Dos. Jenny and Brian are greatly hosts. Everything was perfect. We had an excellent view on the cost of Marocco.
This calm and quiet area was a really great adventure. Bying the fresh fish in the market and preparing it on the gas- barbecue in front of the chalet is a pleasure.
We recomment the visit to anybody. Dear Jenny an Brian: Thank you for this wonderful time. We will visit this lovely place certainly.

La quiétude de Great Escapes
On garde un merveilleux souvenir de notre voyage à TARIFA. La quiétude de « Great Escapes », un berceau de tranquillité dans un jardin typique andalous entretenu d’une main de maître par Brian avec tous ces petits messages « zen » ; on a été bercé dans un univers de calme et de sérénité ; cette lumière, la chaleur, les images, l’air d’Andalousie et le ressac de l’océan. On a la tête remplie de moments magnifiques : la concentration des cigognes avant l’envol de la migration vers l’Afrique ; les vautours qui planent le matin au dessus de la falaise, les meuglements des vaches quand elles recevaient le foin. Les patas negras et les chevaux qu’on a croisé sur le chemin.
Mille merci à Jenny et Brian pour l’accueil, leur gentillesse, leur disponibilité et leurs conseils. On va essayer de ne pas oublier trop vite cette lumière, la chaleur, les images, l’air d’Andalousie.
