“Amazing place”
Reviewed 26 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We had fantastic holidays at El Tajil. The house has amazing views. The surroundings are very quiet and peaceful. There are few waterfalls nearby worth visiting.
The house inside is simply unique and a credit to the owners. There are well equipped kitchen (with a dishwasher!) and a very good BBQ outside.
Our children were delighted to find a Wendi house tucked away behind the villa, a slide, swings and a hammock.
The owner, Ele, was extremely helpful and quick to respond to texts. Although, there is plenty to see in neighbouring villages and towns, we opted to relax outside enjoying the views.

“perfect place to relax”
Reviewed 18 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

When we booked El Tajil we were confident it was going to be a great place to spend a week relaxing and we were not dissapointed. When we arrived the owners Sady & Ele were there to greet us and they made us feel very welcome straight away. Fortunately Ele's English was good enough to give us all the information about the property and the surrounding area as well as places to visit.
El Tajil itself is a very comfortable place that has a nice homely feel and feels very spacious, the kitchen is spacious and well equipped. The lounge has two sofas and a TV that has a few English speaking channels. The bedrooms are comfortable and we slept very well. The showers were fantastic, plenty of hot water and great pressure.
Outside there are plenty of places to sit and chill out including a hammock ,swing chairs, sun loungers and a large table and chairs for a bit of alfresco dining!!
The pool may not be the biggest you will ever see but it is definitely a welcome sight on a hot day.
There seems to be plenty for kids to do including Table football, pool table, table tennis and obviously the swimming pool.
The nearest town is Algarinajo which is less than 5 minutes in the car but I must recommend you walk via the river path at least once which includes waterfalls and plenty of wildlife.
Algarinajo has several places to eat and a supermarket.
Back to El Tajil, the view from the villa is very pleasing and for anyone who enjoys bird watching, plenty of different species can be seen as well as bats in the evening.
Once again I must just mention how helpful and welcoming Sady & Ele were and should be very proud of the fine holiday home they have created.
Enjoy!!!

“Second Honeymoon”
Reviewed 11 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

What a fantastic place. It was everything advertised. Very large for two people of course but that was ok. The kitchen is great and has everything you need to make some nice meals at home. It's so wonderfully quiet. I wish we'd been there when the pool was full but even without that there was plenty to do. Don't miss the river walk into Algarinejo (nearby pueblo); parts are a little treacherous where the cliff side path has narrowed with age but we did it twice and it was such a nice way to go into tone for a meal. Montefrio is also lovely. Sady and her family are very sweet and helpful. They live an hour away but she responds usually in minutes to texts and gives clear answers (e.g., where is X, how to operate such and such an appliance. This was one of the nicest places we stayed at during our 2 month trip around Spain.

“A beautiful house in a stunning location”
Reviewed 5 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We stayed two weeks in "El Tajil" and loved every minute of it. It is hard to find accommodation suitable for entertaining young children but this guesthouse was perfect. It is surrounded by olive groves for walking, a waterfall and stream for paddling and close to a walking trail which follows the river to the village of Algarinejo.

We had a great time picking wild figs, walnuts, quince, berries and pomegranate from trees and bushes around the house and on the walking trail.

The house itself is well- appointed for families as well as adults as there is a play house, ping pong table and pool (however the pool is not fenced and may not be suitable for toddlers).

Cordoba, Malaga and Granada are all close enough for day- trips but other smaller and closer towns such as Priego, Loja, Montefrio and the local village of Algarinejo are well worth visiting as well.
