We stayed at La Casa el Tajil during the first week of September 2012. We were completely taken aback by how beautiful this villa actually was from the moment we stepped out of the car. The villa is done beautifully, as the owner is an architect, so there is amazing attention to detail. Everything you could possibly need has been provided from games, to towels to hammocks! The grounds themselves are also breath-taking with rare views over the rolling hills covered in olive trees, sunbeds on wooden decking (which the owner said is soon to be replaced with a "moving" sunbed which sounds even more luxurious!) and a lovely pool enough to cool down in. You are spoilt for choice on where to enjoy your beer and tapas, for one you have the table by the pool, another table is situated near the front of the house which is ideal for dinner and there is also a terrace which chairs with a view overlooking the grounds and hills. If it is activities you are after, again you will be spoilt for choice! There is the pool of course, and a full size ping pong table complete with bats and balls and a darts board inside. The town is a short 5-10 minutes drive which is really convenient. The owners are incredibly hospitable, which is part of the reason we had such an amazing experience. They were kind enough to drive us down to the river and show us where to go. We walked to the river on our last day and it is definitely worth a visit. The walk leads you alongside the shallow river, on paths alongside waterfalls and beautiful blue/green plunge pools which we constantly dipped in and out of! This villa is one of the most outstanding places we have stayed in and you will not go wrong by booking your holiday here.
