Saladeviciosa, Tarifa

“Not only the tower, but the entire place is absolutely magic and unique. Domesticated wildness in a holistic and harmonious way. Ideal for nature lovers, adventurers and peace-seakers. It’s very close to fantastic beaches and if you need a little more entertainment, beautiful Tarifa is close too. A great experience, I’d love to repeat!!”

Property Description

This unique, rural hideaway is positioned at the top of Saladeviciosa, a tiny hamlet opposite the Sierra of San Bartolome (Betis) and the climb to Bolonia and close to the small “pueblo blanco” Facinas. Its position in the mountains means it enjoys some impressive views looking out over some of Tarifa’s most dramatic countryside. It is very much for the nature lover; the owners live on the same property with their two cats and dogs and they also keep chickens and grow their own vegetables. It is quite normal to be stuck behind cows, goats and donkeys on your way up to the property as they graze freely on the mountainside.

This is domesticated wilderness in a holistic and harmonious enclave of Tarifa.

The property itself is a collection of buildings, which is how people in Andalusia have always lived. The property has been thoughtfully designed and stylishly decorated. The kitchen is well equipped with an oven, six hob stove, dishwasher and large fridge and freezer. Whilst the living area of kitchen, sitting room and eating area is open-plan, the sitting room can also be closed off with hidden sliding doors and used as a second bedroom when there are more than two guests. There is a pellet stove for the winter, which makes this a cosy spot and the wrap-around terrace equips it beautifully for the summer months.

The master bedroom is in a separate building, what the owners call the “magic tower” with its stunning intricate circular roof. Downstairs is the only bathroom – rustic but charming – with a shower, WC, large clay sink and a washing machine.

Between these two sections there is room for four guests, and if there are up to six guests the yoga studio at the upper end of the plot converts into a double bedroom. This circular wooden structure is alternatively where you can take private yoga lessons from the owner, who has twenty years of experience and is extremely professional and an excellent teacher.

The garden is not manicured, but natural with indigenous plants and there is a delightful stone pond with healthy looking Koi fish and lotus plants.   

This is a small slice of heaven for those looking for somewhere to recharge and reconnect in nature, at only 15 minutes from Tarifa town and 10 minutes from the Tarifa and Bolonia beaches in the car.

Guest Reviews

“Our stay was super relaxing and so much fun! The owner was extremely warm and welcoming and we truly enjoyed getting to know him and his hot sauce! He treated us to fresh eggs and an excellent bottle of wine when we arrived and proudly gave us a tour of the home, tower, and property. We slept on a comfy bed in the tower above the bathroom and enjoyed the cozy pellet stove. Cats, dogs, chickens, horses, donkeys and cows visited from time to time. The two fish ponds were mesmerising. Peace and serenity prevailed as we listened to the sound of silence or chirping birds and the wind in the palms. The view of the ocean with Africa in the distance from the yard and tower was awesome. Seeing a vibrant sunset and a multitude of stars at night was a rare treat. The location is perfect - an easy drive to beaches, restaurants, Roman ruins, and the surf town of Tarifa. If this property is available, book it before someone else snags it!”

“We had a fantastic time at This beautiful house! We enjoyed the peaceful setting! Our 2 year old son loved playing with the dogs and the chickens! Thank you for your hospitality! We will be back very soon! A tip for other travelers: you MUST try their HOMEMADE KEMAKULO HOT SAUCE!”

“A piece of paradise for us. Nature close by, romantic yet stylishly decorated.”

“This place is a gem of a retreat and only wish we could have stayed longer to walk more in the hills and go to the beach another day.”

“The experience at the magic tower has been a great one, both for the hosts who have made us feel at home, the perfect location for a sea and mountain trip, and we were also very lucky to have yoga classes, which were spectacular and highly recommendable, so much so that we plan to repeat the experience as soon as possible.”
