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.

Great Escapes hält was es verspricht

  • 4 of 5

- Einfache Hütte in der alles da ist, was man so braucht - sehr sauber

- Neuwertige Dusche und Toilette (mit herrlichem Ausblick bei geöffneter Tür) :)

- Küche hat alle Utensilien, die man für Selbstversorgung so braucht

- Rundum-Bepflanzung sorgt für angenehme und ruhige Privatsphäre

- Brian ist ein sehr aufmerksamer und - wenn gewünscht - unterhaltsamer Gastgeber

- Insider Tipps gibt es gratis dazu von ihm :)

==> Würden wir nochmal nach Tarifa reisen, würden wir definitiv wieder zu Brian und auch wieder in das Chalet Tres gehen

Great Escape @ Tarifa We loved the place & Brian!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Bungalow Tres and loved the place! Brian and his wife are great hosts.

We are a young couple and went for our first time to Tarifa to kite surf and enjoy the beach. We flew in from Malaga and arrived at night at the Bungalow. Brian guided us to the place because it was a bit hard to find in the dark.

How to find?

From direction Tarifa second right up the road after you passed Hotel Codorniz on your right hand.

We enjoyed the tapas restaurants, night live and beautiful chill out place @ Great Escape Tarifa. A nice place to sit outside, cook on your BBQ and shower and sleep in the little Chalet. Thanks for having us! Rik & Nanda

Le jardin d'Eden!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Vous avez besoin de calme et de vous reposez?

Voici l'endroit idéal pour passez des vacances superbes. Nous avons passé 2 semaines dans le chalet numéro 3. C'est un chalet sur pilotis avec un chalet annexe pour les sanitaires et une cuisine extérieur.

Brian, le propriétaire et sa femme sont très sympathiques et vous êtes garantie d'avoir de bonne discussion avec lui.

Quant à l'entretien général des chalets et du jardin, je vous défie de trouver mieux à Tarifa.

Nous étions à tarifa pour le kitesurf. Vous aurez à disposition un tuyau d'arrosage pour rincer le matériel. Le centre ville est à 5 minute en voitures et la plage de Valdevaqueros (kite surf) à 3 minutes.

Location de voiture avec malaga car (137 euros pour 14 jours + 40euros pour le demi plein payé au départ)

Bonne vacances!!!!!!!!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed in Chalet Tres for 9 days. We've had a wonderful time and we will definitely come back to Great Escapes some day.

Chalet tres is the smallest of the four chalets on the grounds. Nevertheless, it provides everything one needs for a calm and relaxing holiday apart from the noisy and crowded tourist places one can find on the Costa del Sol. The beautilful garden and the chalet itself simply made us feel at home. The pool is great for cooling down from the heat and is always clean. During our stay we almost always had it for ourselves. There are lots of things to do around Tarifa if one is looking for some action and sports. The beaches around great Escapes are beautiful and never crowded. The beaches of Bolonia and Punta Paloma/La Duna can be accessed easily by car and offer good parking facilities. The supermarket Mercadona in Tarifa is a good place for shopping groceries at modest prices.

When deciding for great escapes one must note that it is not comparable to hotel vacations. The chalets are well equipped and offer everything one needs but it is more like luxury-camping. Chalet Tres does not offer lots of space and can get hot during the day. Nevertheless, for us it was more than enough for spending a perfect time in Tarifa.

Brian and Jenny were truly amazing hosts. They were always there for us, helping us whenever they could, and making our holiday even more special. We truly never felt that welcome during other holidays. Whenever there was a slight problem, Brian and Jenny were there to help us. During our short stay we felt like staying at old friends. ?

Owner's Response: Chalet tres is ideal as a base for exploring the area and relaxing outside on the sunloungers or hammock. Obviously in July and August the temperatures are at their hottest but it is hot everywhere in Andalucia during this time. The beauty of the area is that there is always a nice breeze to cool us down. Our guests specifically choose Great Escapes because it isn't a hotel atmosphere but a one off private site which offers the ideal place to unwind and completely relax from the daily routine. Our guests come to Great Escapes for peace and tranquillity and above all to enjoy the natural beauty of the area and gardens. Chalet Tres may be described like luxury camping but with the added advantage that it is situated in a spectacular site with views to Morocco across the Atlantic to the south and mountains to the north. Guests have their own private space and parking and can enjoy their own balconies and terraces with bbqs and cooking facilities. Hosts are on site for any eventualities. Please note that the other three chalets are bigger and offer extra outside space, especially chalet uno and dos. Future guests please note that chalet tres is also our most economical chalet, being at least 100 euros less per week than the others throughout the rental season. We try to provide for different budgets and this is borne out by the positive things that guests say in their reviews for all 4 of our chalets.

A Fun Time For All

  • 5 of 5

My teenage daughters stayed in chalet tres as part of our 3 chalet booking.

They loved their independence but also enjoyed the fact they could eat with the family at chalet dos.

Chalet tres is ideal for a young couple or siblings to share, as our daughters did.

Chalet tres is the closest chalet to chalet dos and made it a perfect setting for our daughters to spend time with their grandparents in chalet dos.

My daughters loved the hammock on the side terrace and the fantastic views.

The Atlantic ocean can be seen from the bedroom as can the spectacular sunsets.

Although initially concerned there was no wifi at Great Escapes, the girls found plenty available in the town and actually read a book instead!

A success all round.

Owner's Response: We are happy to encourage family bookings, where 2 or more chalets are block booked by one family. It is gratifying for us when several generations can benefit and enjoy what Great Escapes has to offer. So far we have resisted the introduction of wifi as we believe that disconnecting is valuable for a true get away from it all, which we want to offer our guests.
