Harpers & Queen
Country House (Hotel) of the Year
"The epitome of casual chic - orange groves, peace and quiet and eagles soaring"
El Aguilón provides a perfect place for different generations to relax and spend time together. One of the most magnificent houses in Andalucia, this colonial gem is just 10 minutes' drive from Tarifa's famous beaches.
Stunning house, guest cottage, large swimming pool in lawned orange orchard, tennis court, mature gardens, spectacular unspoilt views; this superb property is in a class of its own.
Open all year round
Each season offers something special. On hot summer days, guests can unwind by the pool or doze quietly in a hammock. During the winter months, the climate is wonderfully mild; warm sunshine, but not too hot. Perfect for a game of tennis or a ride on the beach!
The walks from El Aguilón are spectacular. The surrounding hills have an abundance of wild flowers and breath-taking views of Africa across the Straits to the Rif mountains beyond.
On cool winter evenings, you can relax in front of a roaring fire.
For keen golfers, El Aguilón is less than an hour’s drive from some of the finest golf courses in Europe; Valderrama, Sotogrande, Montenmedio etc.
Tarifa enjoys an almost perfect climate. However, all bedrooms have air-conditioning, and for those cool winter nights, guests enjoy the benefits of underfloor heating. Wifi is available throughout the house.
