There is a small shop and a bar in the hamlet that is 5' drive down the track from the villa on the main road The villa is clean and spacious with a pleasant garden surrounded by fields. The pool is a good size, and an equally welcome feature is the tower room, which even on the hottest days provided respite from the Spanish sun. Highly recommended for a comfortable and relaxing stay.

This rental was perfect for sharing – the kitchen was extremely well equipped with everything one would need should you wish choose to prepare your own meals – we prepared all our breakfasts and a few suppers as well. And there is even enough room for those husbands who always seem to be under foot. This property is built into a cliff overlooking the valley and fields beyond – the view is amazing. The home has several levels and outdoor living is emphasized through the availability of numerous patios – it was difficult to decide each day where we would enjoy our breakfast or morning coffee. In the evenings we would sit outside enjoying a bottle of wine and the mornings, enjoying a cup of coffee, planning our day’s adventures, while watching the sun rise over the mighty hills of the Sierra de Grazalema. Both bedrooms were on the second floor separated by a large common room. Access to the top level balcony was available through either the master bedroom or common room – have I mentioned the view was amazing? The kitchen, dining room, living room (with two separate sitting areas) and powder room were situated on the main floor with outdoor access to the small pool and yet another patio. The pool was only large enough to enjoy a dip – very refreshing after touring all those bodegas each day, or after climbing all those steep streets in the towns we visited. Avelina’s son was on hand to welcome us upon our arrival and took us on a tour of the home – the apartment was much larger than expected and availability of a secured parking garage nearby by an added bonus. The apartment is located a short walk from the main plaza – seems to be uphill both ways! – where you can find numerous restaurants and bars. Throughout the area there were numerous small corner “grocery” stores, but you can do your main shopping at the Co-Op store just outside of town. During our stay, we visited Jerez and its numerous bodegas, attended the horse show there, visited Cadiz, and finally completed a circular driving loop which included Ubrique (known for its leather shops), Grazalema via Benamahoma and Zahara. A word of caution – do not drive through the old town like we did trying to find the apartment – ignore your GPS! Get detailed directions from Avelina and avoid the stress, although we laugh about is now. If you are planning a visit to this part of Spain, consider making Acros de la Frontera your home ba

It was as advertised, clean, well maintained and extremely well provided. The house is surrounded by quiet shaded patios and a forest of Mediterranean bushes and trees, all planted by the owner and providing us with a variety of fruit. Joaquin was very knowledgeable, friendly and hospitable and he and his wife went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. They even had Wi Fi installed for our use while we were there. Arcos itself is an active town of the region and has many good restaurants and shops. The house is ideally located for visiting all the larger centres in south west Andalucía. We strongly recommend this property as an ideal holiday home.
