Reviews of the Tarsan Tribe

We feel honoured to share these beautiful words written by previous guests of Casa Tarsan Vegan Eco Lodge: The Tarsan Tribe.

We had a wonderful stay at Casa Tarsan, we loved the quiet, taking in the majestic views and starting each day with yoga! Nikita even adapted her lesson to my wife who was 6 months pregnant at the time. The sunset solar-powered rainwater jacuzzi was another highlight of our stay.

What a beautiful setting to enjoy the hospitality of Erik and Nikita. Stunning mountain scenery with the best view from any bar stool I’ve ever sat on. Top class vegan food and a never ending supply of smiles from our hosts really made the weekend special.

We have had an amazing few days at this beautiful eco lodge. Erik and Nikita made us so welcome. Tried yoga in the mornings and Nikita is a great instructor and very patient, as it was my first time at yoga. Erik made us some wonderful Vegan food which we really enjoyed. Thanks guys we had a great time. ?

Really relaxing experience! This place has everything you can expect when you want to go away from the noise, the city… The views and the place are incredible! The hosts are so friendly:). We will come back for sure!!:D.

Perfect escape for nature loving people. Only spent 2 nights but need to come back to experience more hikes, yoga and the perfect human and animal hosts of the most beautiful Casa. Just can’t recommend enough, you have to experience it yourself. Perfect place to charge your batteries, and best views I’ve ever seen, no matter if it is the mountains or sea you prefer. ???

A very special place in the middle, or almost on top of the mountains! The view is amazing and Nikita and Eric are very nice people. They want you to feel good, enjoy and relax. The rooms are really magic and they take care of being ecological, what is really good! The breakfast and dinner is fantastic and seeing the sunset makes it even more great! We would definitely go back there again! This is a must see and experience for everybody!!

A refreshing stay in the middle of the heat. This place holds magical space for relaxation, self-reflection and connecting with the nature. The hosts are warm-hearted and the food they make is delicious. And I loved having so many animal friends around as well! Thank you! ❤️

I cannot recommend this fabulous place highly enough. If you love nature and scenery with a huge spoonful of Spanish peace and quiet then Casa Tarsan is the place to stay. Nikita and Eric are the most welcoming hosts and the rooms they have created for their guests are very stylish with some really beautiful finishing touches. This isn’t just a B&B, it’s a place you will want to stay and while away the hours soaking up the sunshine and gaze at the breathtaking scenery.

Eric, Nikita and their sweet guarding german shepperd ‘woef’ are the proud residents of Casa Tarsan. The villa surely suits it’s name! The scenery is spectacular to say the least. Not only the sunset but the sunrise, for those who dare, are breathtaking. Never done yoga before? With Nikita you will no longer feel the need for excuses.. in Wim Hofman’s (the ice man) words, just do it!!! Eric and Nikita did a great job preserving this artistic villa with the same passion the former owner designed it which in my opinion is definitely a piece of regional monumental art. Creative, surprisingly delicious and detoxing vegan food will make you consider the slogan “you are what you eat” more than twice. From complete silence to a sudden strong mountain breeze, hot poolside sun to clear jacuzzi night skies, unpredictable nature at it’s best! We had an unforgettable stay. Eric and Nikita thank you so much for the invitation but most of all for the inspiration. Namaste my friends….

We cannot say enough to express how good this place is. We stayed for some relaxation and yoga and left feeling so calm and relaxed….we should have stayed longer! I’m not a vegan myself but the food was excellent and cooked by Eric who claims not be a chef, but I’m not sure! One of the best curries I’ve ever eaten. The yoga that Nikita did was a type of yoga myself or my wife have never tried but now we’ve done it we want more! Nikita is a great teacher, helping you relax into each pose whilst also being mindful of your surroundings. The hour and half session felt like 20 minutes. Stunning views when you have breakfast or lunch and awesome walks nearby. Certainly planning a return trip.

Casa Tarsan is a very special place, located on top of a mountain with spectacular views. Eric and Nikita create a relaxed atmosphere and provide great tips on hiking routes and local restaurants. We especially enjoyed Eric’s delicious vegan cooking and Nikita’s yin yoga classes in the morning. Great place to fully relax and enjoy nature in a sustainable way!

We enjoyed our stay. The views and the food are amazing! Set up is great and hosts are really nice.

It was an amazing trip ! Thank you for everything Eric &Nikita (and Woofer also). The site is really amazing, we had a very good time in the river. The yoga at the morning was a nice experience, you’re food is really good. We will come back for sure !!! Thank you again for this moment ! 🙂

This place is by far the best Airbnb I’ve ever stayed it. I can’t even describe how fantastic the views are. The vegan food was delicious! Eric & Nikita provided plenty of local tips and the nature walks close to the house were unforgettable. 11/10 absolutely beautiful.

Eric and Nikita created a beautiful oasis on a top of the mountain. The place is magical, spiritual, comfortable, has everything you need for a great stay out of the city. Delicious food that Eric cooks, selection of local vines, clean eco ambience, comfortable rooms. They have an amazing area for meditation, yoga, massage, swimming pool, so its impossible to get bored. Next to the house there are tracking paths to enjoy nature and the river. And the best are the views which you can enjoy while having dinner outside or simply having a glass of wine. Both, Eric and Nikita are amazing people! We really enjoyed the stay and highly recommend!

Casa Tarsan is amazing!! An incredible home set on a stunning mountain. Eric & Nikita are perfect hosts. Eric’s cooking is delicious (especially the Green Curry!) and Nikita’s Yoga sessions are a must. We hope to come back soon!

Awesome location and great food.

This place is truly very special – the location is gorgeous with wonderful hikes and wild swimming spots. Eric and Nikita’s personal touches around the space make it very unique and it’s eco friendly focus is admirable and gives it even more of a unique touch. Eric and Nikita are amazing: we can’t recommend highly enough.

We have rented the 360° Degrees Suite for 5 days. It has magnificent views and is equipped with a very comfortable bed and lots of amenities. Eric & Nikita were wonderful hosts and have treated us perfectly. Nikita is extraordinarily supportive, while Eric is a great cook who prepares vegan meals that do make you forget about meat and everything else. Last but not least there is Woofer – a smart and loving German Shepherd Dog. We would love to return to Casa Tarsan anytime soon.

A simply wonderful retreat in a stunning location with outstanding hosts and a very special dog. Amazing mountain walks and nature. Excellent cuisine all home cooked. Highly recommend this place and it’s lovely owners.

Eric & Nikita were really welcoming and made out stay really nice. the place is wonderful, so is the region and the meals they prepare ! we’ll come back for sure.

What a wonderful hideaway in the mountains of Valencia! Nikita and Eric were truly super hosts! The views were stunning, house is gorgeous, food was delicious and they gave us lots of great tips for walks and swims near by. Thank you again – we’ll definitely be back!

#1 A wonderful remote house on a hill with a spectacular view to the sea and the Mountains. #2 An ideal place to calm down, relax and unwind from stress. #3 Nikita & Eric are super friendly and caring hosts. I had a great time and just can fully recommend to plan a vacation trip to Casa Tarzan to everyone, who needs a break and find inner peace.

We had a great stay at Casa Tarsan. Fantastic views and very welcoming hosts made it a super stay. Thanks Nikita & Eric for all your helpful tips and for making our stay such a great experience.

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful stay in Casa Tarsan! If you’re looking for completely different scenery and somewhere beautiful up in the mountains with a great view then you’ll love this place! Was a little difficult to find located at the top of an windy road on the mountain but so worth it once you get up there. Hot tub was great and so are the seats with an amazing view! Breakfast was also delicious. Hope to come back here someday soon. Thanks Eric and Nikita.

What an amazing place to chill out! Stunning views or the mountains and valley, great eco lodge with top facilities. We loved the jacuzzi watching out over the stunning view. Eric and Nikita were great and the food was tasty too. We loved switching of from modern life xx

Breathtaking views and thoughtful, funky decorations surrounded us in this eco friendly home. The entire atmosphere is so calming and refreshing. We loved the room, private terrace, spot for yoga, salt water pool, and the hosts were so kind and accommodating. You will not be disappointed!

A magical experience, the treatment received by Eric and Nikita has been wonderful. The studio is beautiful, the views, the pool, the jacuzzi, everything has been perfect

My partner and I spent 3 days at Casa Tarsan and had an amazing time. Eric and Nikita are wonderful hosts, so warm, friendly and welcoming. They really looked after us. The breakfast and dinner were really nice, especially the Thai curry! The property itself is incredible, with amazing views all around. The surrounding area is beautiful, perfect for hiking and exploring. Our little dog loved it. We really enjoyed our stay here and really look forward to coming back again soon. Thank you Eric and Nikita!

We had never guessed that eco and luxury could go hand in hand. Forget every cliche about eco-tourism, and be ready do discover a new wave of luxury. It is not so much about what Eric and Nikita have found, nor about what they have added & created – to us it was all these things as well as how they deliver on the eco-luxury message within each tiny detail. Well done. One more thing: go for breakfast, lunch or any other cuisine excuse – try any one of the outstanding cocktails. Which, you may have guessed by now – were as lush, ecological and well thought of as anything else …

We had a lovely time in a paradise created by Eric and Nikita on their mountain top. We felt privileged to be a part of this but unfortunately we ran out of time. Too much to see and too to talk about. Just remember Walt Disney’s words: “if you can dream it, you can do it”. Go for it. Until we meet again, Monica and Roland

Amazing place.. Amazing hosts.. My expectations where over exceeded.. I would recommend the place to anyone and everyone!

Lovely secluded house in the mountains.

The wonderful couple and their sweet young dog, invites you with open arms into their mini mountain hotel. Three room all together, that results in possibility for quiet and relaxing holiday. And it is always possible to find shadow if the sun is too strong. The mountain and river nature near by is beautiful. But the view from the terrace is incredible. Finally the breackfast is the best ever. Only good things to say.

If you want to stay somewhere unique with plenty of opportunities to explore the area – AMAZING!!! – and appreciate an awesome accommodation with great hosts who are always going way beyond the extra-mile to ensure to have everything you want while respecting your wish for privacy… well, go for Casa Tarsan! I loved Nikita & Eric’s extraordinary home, the morning Yin Yoga sessions with Nikita (donation-based if you want to join in) and the diversity of Casa Tarsan’s location… check out the different beaches not too far away, the impressive mountain surroundings including several rivers and lakes, etc. …. You will love it! ENJOY!!!

Nikita & Eric are wonderful people and their house is a fabulous spot in the mountains not to be missed. The jacuzzi outside made my body feel new! Just what I needed after a week of intensive yoga. The bedroom is very comfortable and we also loved the walk-in shower. Plenty of places to relax in the outdoors of the house, all with incredible views. Breakfast in the morning was also just what we needed to be ready to climb up the mountain to La Finestra (something not to be missed!) There is a bike ride along river Serpis through incredible scenery to a cute little town called L’Orxa. It’s around 26 km return and it’s also something not the be missed. The bar by the river “Diddleys” run by twin brothers is always packed with locals. The food the dessert the coffee and the service were all pretty great! Also must mention the morning yin yoga with Nikita was a great way to start our day. All in all we recommend their home to everyone!

Eric and Nikita were wonderful hosts. They made us feel at home and could not have been more helpful with tips about the local area and anything we needed in their home. The house is situation at the top of a large hill – the views are incredible! We loved everything about our stay including the delicious breakfast, morning yoga, outdoor cinema, pool and hot-tub and the kindness of the hosts. The 360degree view from the terrace was spectacular! Woofer is a very friend German Shepherd dog who likes to chase the two cats around! We loved going for local walks and saw a beautiful range of plants, flowers, butterflies and birds. Overall Casa Tarsan exceded our expectations and it was an unforgettable experience to stay there.

Thanks to Eric & Nikita for their great hospitality, and for offering a wonderful stay in a wonderful environment. A very nice room with a big terrace to enjoy the amazing view. We had a perfect stay !

Eric and Nikita not only have the most beautiful rooms & location but are beautiful hosts themselves; The location is very special and the nature that surrounds Casa Tarsan is unforgettable and well worth dragging yourself from the comfy bed and refreshing swimming pool to go out and see. Easy to find and breathtaking views make your stay feel like you are miles away from reality having only taken a short drive really from the bigger cities. We can’t wait to return!

WOW what a place…..on the day we arrived ” A Place in the Sun ” ( a famous UK TV show) arrived to feature Casa Tarsan on the programme as one of the “special houses” in the area and they are right…it is indeed special . The attention to detail on this unique Casa is amazing and the views are breathtaking . You will not find anywhere else like it in the mountains. The Casa has areas to relax and enjoy the views everywhere and the energy from the mountain area is really rejuvenating for a weekend retreat. Its in great area for walks, beaches and the local towns with good restaurants if you are are here for more than a weekend and want a day out . I would recommend a car to see the area and be assured considering you are so high in the mountains its an excellent road to get there. The rooms are gorgeous but the most special thing are the hosts. Eric and Nikita they make guests feel at home and welcome and you can see they really enjoy what they do. You will not be disappointed if you visit and i cannot recommend it enough, we would definitely stay again we loved it it really is a unique place to relax and re charge .

Eric & Nikita place is really a gem up in the mountains. Casa Tarzan is a funny little property which has many places to lounge and outstanding views. We enjoyed hiking, which was particularly nice as we could leave directly from our front door. We had a wonderful meal just down the road at a very lively bar on the river. Would recommend giving the place a try.

Extra special location and wonderful area! Nikki and Eric were super helpful and the house and room were clean and beautifully furnished. The breakfast was delicious and everything from the shower to the friendly dog made for a wonderful stay. Super recomendado para escapar de la ciudad. La casa tiene una localización increíble, rodeado de montañas y naturaleza.

This place was absolutely amazing, we felt so at home in the mountains and had a lovely time with Eric and Nikita. The eco-friendly vibe was so refreshing and has inspired us to do more for the environment whilst enjoying the luxuries. The views and surroundings are spectacular and we will definitely be returning in the future.

This place was magical. From sunrise to sunset you can see it all and enjoy all that the mountains have to offer. Nikita and Eric have really made a special home with everything you could want for a relaxing stay in the mountains. You have to see it!

We had an excellent stay here. The place was absolutely lovely, the view was spectacular, and the Eric and Nikita are exceptionally welcoming. The apartment was cozy, very clean, well furnished and had everything we needed to cook all our own meals. The outdoor space here is gorgeous, a very nice environment to hang out in overall. It was close enough to climbing areas (with a vehicle) and hiking out the door. We ended up extending our stay a couple nights because we liked it so much. Thank you Eric and Nikita for extending your home to us! We highly recommend this place.

Nikita & Eric are great hosts, quick in communication and very hospitable. We weren’t able to use all the awesome things the lodge comes with, such as the pool or the hot tub, as we were visiting during the cold season. But we did enjoy the view a lot, and Nikita gave us great tips for beautiful hikes in the mountains and valleys of the area. Highly recommended for a calm vacation to recharge your energy.

This place is great any time of year! Thanks to the hosts!

Super host, super nice, everything is like it is promised. I‘ll never forget this view from this house! Nikita and Eric thank you for these nice week!

Wonderful place . perfect for a chilled get away ! Amazing breakfast and yoga . The hosts couldn’t be more helpful …… Worth a Visit !

Great! We spent a wonderful weekend. The views from the room windows and from the terrace are awesome and Eric & Nikita lovely. The room is nice, comfortable, and extremely quiet & peaceful. You only hear mountain winds and birds. We will repeat.

Amazing location, great mountain view (sunsets and sunrises are awesome here) and some nice hiking trails in a walking distance. We had a great little holiday here, relaxed and enjoyed every day of it. Nikita was a very attentive and lovely host and had quite a few good tips about the area. Highly recommended!

This is one of the best place I’ve been as a week end guest in a “casa rural”! The house is unique, with beautiful views, very quiet, the hosts are soo friendly and helpful, the rooms are super clean and the environment is perfect for some relax, hiking in the mountain, or walking around. We will definitely come back!! Many thanks Nikita and Eric, keep it like this!!

Fantastic! Try it. Will not find it better.

Very nice house. I spend with my girlfriend an awesome weekend. Very nice views and unique moments at the jacuzzi watching the sunset. Nikita were a very kindly hostess. Highly recommended.
