I stayed in the lovely Chalet Tres through Oct and November 2015 whilst learning to windsurf at the nearby Valdevaqueros beach. Had an incredibly laid back, peaceful and relaxing time. I thoroughly recommend to anyone. In summary: LOCATION - EXCELLENT. Great Escapes is situated almost exactly halfway between Tarifa Town and Valdevaqueros beach. Means you are away from any noise/hustle-bustle...

The most relaxing place to visit on the Costa de la luz, breathtaking views of the Atlantic ocean and eagles souring overhead. Al fresco dining on our large private patio area. Has a back to nature feel about it. Private parking and very secure. Would definitely recommend a stay here you won't want to leave.

Stayed in chalet tres for 10 days in September 2014. It was a wonderfully serene place. We really could not have asked for more. We cannot wait to return. Brian and Jenny were the loveliest of people and the perfect hosts.

It is quite unique in its beauty with views to Africa and we just loved our time at chalet cuatro. The combination of outdoor space and balcony which provided incredible views across the Atlantic plus a comfortable and clean...

There is a very special outdoor terrace space for cooking and eating, which was like having an enormous outdoor living room. I spent much of my time in a hammock while my husband preferred the garden loungers. It was thoughtfully furnished, with comfort and...

My second visit to this special location was even better than I remembered it. The grounds and beautiful trees and plants have matured and the chalets have been updated. It is obvious that the owners have invested in Great Escapes, to offer a truly unique experience to their guests. The views across to Morocco and the local beaches are spectacular...

“All the chalets are different and have their own special beauty but we loved Chalet cuatro for its amazing views, being built on high and taking advantage of its position.”
