Absolutely Perfect

5 of 5
I'll keep this short as i don't want to rehash what all the other reviews have said, my wife and i have stayed in a lot of holiday properties and without doubt this is the best equipped, most comfortable we have ever stayed in, the house wants for nothing and we had a fantastic stay there, everything from payments, enquiries, administration to arrival, welcome pack and local management was spot on. Everything else about the rest of our holiday was great also but i'll spare the details as it's all been said previously. No doubting the quality of this acommodation, just book it!

Wonderful house in Arcos

5 of 5
The property was as described, spotlessly clean & spacious. The views are amazing & Avelina was always very helpful as was Antonio who met us . I would suggest visitors take the road signposted east of Arcos as although the road up to the garage is no entry you are allowed to drive up if you are going to the garage & this means you don't have to negotiate the very narrow streets to the property! It was good to have basics in the kitchen ( bread, butter, coffee , etc ) . A beautiful house with various terraces to admire the views.
