Our host, Joaquin, went out of his way to welcome us and to ensure that we had a comfortable stay - he even brought us some home-made almond biscuits mid-week! We couldn't have wished for more. We can highly recommend this property and hope to return ourselves one day.

A lovely house sympathetically restored with all requirements for the 8 of us. Essentials such as hot water was in plentiful supply and because it was so early in the year the open fire was a nice addition when we returned late at night. Beds nice and comfortable. Plenty of bars and restaurants within easy walking distance although the house is in a quiet part of town. Small convenience store within 50yards discreetly placed between the properties. Its all a bit frantic when you drive up to the house first time....but take it easy, park and unload the car and all will be well. The welcome from the cleaner went all according to plan. Nice outside terrace on the roof that would be great in the summer. The local people are fantastic. We became friends with a few bar / restaurant owners, but you have to avoid the tourist traps as they are more pricy than the traditional eateries. That said it was a fantastic experience and I would stay again. Parking is a slight issue, there are places in town but we parked in the main free area down in the new town and walked up. I didn't kill us and was an interesting start and finish to the day. A slice of real Spain with easy access to tourist areas. I would recommend this property.

Arcos is a picturesque town, ideal for visiting historic towns on the Costa de la Luz and Gibraltar. I would recommend also renting the garage parking space offered.
