"AN UNFORGETTABLE VACATION"
This year for our holiday we went to Tarifa.
We booked the Apartment “Tanger “, in the house Estrella del Estrecho, for 11 days.
The great location of this structure, built in 1860 and restored with great knowledge and passion by the current owners, convinced us that we were in the right place to spend our holiday in absolute tranquility and breathtaking views at every awakening: view on the Straits of Gibraltar and the coastline of Marocco.
The Apartment is tastefully decorated, spacious, clean and equipped.
To make it more enjoyable, our stay was supported by the kindness of the owners, very discreet, but always there to give us some advices about the places to visit and restaurants , where you can appreciate typical dishes.
It was an unforgettable vacation to repeat for sure.

The Apartment 'Tanger' is a real gem, nestled on a cliff high above the town it offers views over the med to Morocco and the town of Tarifa itself. The walk into town was via a cobbled country track that only takes about 10 minutes so we had the best of both worlds. A truly wonderful location.

"Great apartment in an amazing location!"
We had a lovely week staying in Apartment Tarifa at the Estrella del Estrecho, a converted former observatory. Situated on top of a cliff above Tarifa, it's an absolutely stunning spot with views across the sea to Morocco.
The property is located in an area of National Park next to Tarifa itself, and you have to go the long way round to get there by road (approx. 10 mins drive from Tarifa, and easy to do once you know how!) The owners will ask you to come to a location in Tarifa and then provide the final instructions for getting to the property once you can see the relevant landmarks. However once there, you can walk down the cliffside from the apartment to Tarifa old town in about 10 mins - we found this walk absolutely fine (even on the way back up after a few drinks in the town in the evening, but perhaps not good for anyone with mobility difficulties as it is quite a steep slope).
The apartment was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed for the week (including a surprisingly good shower, very welcome after days spent kitesurfing). Tarifa itself is a lovely place, so much to do and see, would definitely recommend both Tarifa itself and this apartment!
