review 5 Nov 2012

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

So many things; Watching the sun rise every morning, star gazing at night, our toddler feeding the chickens our daily food scraps.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Certainly. The farm is off the grid, water is recycled. Alot of the food waste is given to the livestock. We shopped and ate locally. A hybrid car was provided for our stay.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

It is a wonderful place for a family holiday with small children and a great place to recharge your batteries.

review 1 Mar 2011

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Staying in a yurt on a site with over 100 chickens, various cats, rabbits and even a donkey roaming around. Great for kids with donkey rides, missions to collect eggs every day, and to hang out with other kids on the communal trampoline, pirate boat and playground.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Really relaxed atmosphere in this family-run eco business, far away from the crowds of package tourists. Definitely get the organic food box, it had the most delicious produce.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

Definitely. The site employed local people. It was 100% self-sustaining, with solar power, its own well and its own sewage system. We even had little solar powered lamps for our yurts at nights!

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Fabulously relaxing, beautiful island, relaxed yet very responsive hosts. A great experience

review 26 Oct 2010

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The rural location with an opportunity to see the landscape and vegetation. The space, both our private area around our yurt and outside where the kids were free to play on the trampoline and meet the chickens and donkey. The smallness of the resort and the uncrowded beach. The morning bike ride into the village for bread.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

Yes.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

The right holiday for our family at this time.

review 11 Dec 2009

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Beautiful accommodation and right next to a lovely beach with great and unpretentious Spanish restaurants.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

The immediate surroundings of the finca are a little bleak and unpromising but once you are inside their gates it's lovely. In time that will change as planting etc matures I expect

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

Definitely.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Excellent. As good as we had hoped and will go back with our children next year who will also love it!
