The house is in a beautiful location!Very rural and traquil. The walk to the village alongside the river was beautiful.We liked the Jacuzzi!

The only difficulty was the heating with the olivepits...It was more an art I think...It would be good to have a written instruction.

But the owner helped immediately and was very kind.
And we used the wood fire.
Don't forget to eat at Casa Piolas in Algarinejo....never had a better meal...

“Beautiful holiday house, and a paradise for our small children.”
Reviewed 8 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

person found this review helpful

We stayed for two weeks with our two boys of one and three. The evenings were stillquite cold in January but the fire place kept us warm and added the romantic touch. We loved relaxing at night in the spa when the kids were in bed, and during the day when the sun was out our oldest loved to play in the spa with dad. The play house out the back was the favorite place to play for our boys. The owners are incredibly friendly and came straight away in case of any problems! They even cooked us a traditional paella, which was unmistakably the best paella we ever had!

“Wonderful Spanish experience”
Reviewed 10 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We rented this house with our three boys 8, 10 and 12 years of age. They loved swimming in the pool, sleeping in the hammock, and playing ping pong. Sady and Eli were lovely and very helpful with activities. They left us homemade marmalade and Eli showed us everything about the house. Eli also offered to come back if we needed anything. We really enjoyed watching the sun set over the olive groves and the atmosphere was lovely. We also enjoyed the river and water mill walk between the house and Algarinejo. Finally, the kids were thrilled there was WIFI, which worked great. Overall, it was a wonderful get away, and we felt like we really got to experience rural Spain. You should note that the roads around the house are very "twisty and turny" and my children actually felt car sick several times when we were driving from the house to other cities. The only issues were that I had told Sady what time we were coming in but Eli seemed surprised when we arrived at the house, and it was not ready for us. As a result, the hot tub was not ready (and actually never got hot - but they reimbursed us for that) and none of the beds were made. We also could not get the TV with the satellite to work (which wasn't a huge problem, as we didn't watch much TV) and to be fair, we never mentioned to Eli. Again, overall, we really enjoyed our stay.

Hello family, we are very happy that happen as well in our house.
When you arrived the house was not ready at all because the previous occupants left a little later than expected and although you told us when you arrived, about 12 hours we did not give us time to get everything done, we no problems in the huespeded arrive before the check in normal within 17 h, but you must understand that may not be all set.
Anyway, is not that the beds were not made, is that we let the clean clothes on the bed so you can see that they are not used and the host's place.
We definitely had a problem with the hot tub, appeared to be broken water heater.
We would not have had any problem in showing you how to work the satellite television.
A big hug and hope to see you back again some other time.

“Idyllic Andalucian cottage”
Reviewed 18 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

person found this review helpful

Lovely generous hosts. Spotlessly clean cottage. Thoughtfully provisioned with everything. Great location. Idyllic views. We've stayed in cottages all over UK & Europe & this was in the very top league. Great for us as a couple but would be perfect for small groups & a wonderland for children with caves & nooks & crannies. Brilliant

“A magical Andalucian getaway”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014
1
person found this review helpful

We booked El Tajil hoping for a relaxing break where we could have fun with friends and family in beautiful surroundings with guaranteed sunshine and plenty of entertainment and we couldn't have been happier with our choice.

Ele and Sady were wonderful hosts, meeting us on arrival and showing us all of the facilities, inside and out, including the well-stocked vegetable garden and the fabulous waterfall that can be heard from the villa.

The house itself was perfect for our needs, accommodating 2 families of 4 very comfortably, with a pool, jacuzzi, sun terrace, table tennis, table football and pool table providing all of the entertainment we needed. The kitchen was very well stocked and all the appliances worked well (allthough the cooker was a little fiddly to operate). We brought our own music system, but not sure what would have been available had we not.

We enjoyed daily trips to the local town of Algarinejo (a 5-minute drive away) to top up on supplies at the local supermarket, which stocked pretty much everything we needed. A visit to the waterfall along the river walk to Algarinejo and a trip to Cordoba (1.5-2 hours away) to see the old town and Le Mesquita are also highly recommended.

I would thoroughly recommend a stay at El Tajil for anyone looking for a peaceful and relaxing holiday - the beautiful views from the terrace and balcony and the fun, laughter-filled evenings sat around the outdoor dining table accompanied by the sound of the cicadas and the running water from the waterfall will stay in my memory for a long time to come. Oh and there were no mosquitoes - amazing!!
