Beautifully appointed house, everything you could need in a self catering property, located in the old part of town. Great views from the roof terrace. Very friendly and helpful hosts. Good restaurants and bars within easy walking distance.
We would not hesitate to return if we were visiting this area again.
We enjoyed our stay at Cortijo Buena Vista immensely. The weather was absolutely fabulous which made the air conditioning in every room very welcome. The villa is very well appointed with everything you could possibly need supplemented by a thoughtful welcome pack and access to many staple products and cleaning products you normally need to purchase.
The lounge, diner, kitchen is great, sofas are comfortable and there is satellite access to main UK channels if you can ever tear yourself away from the idyllic garden.
We enjoyed the pool as swallows swooped over our heads and birds of prey circled in the distance. There are various tables, chairs, pool loungers throughout the property in various locations which means you can chase the sun or stay in the shade whatever your preference. The tower room offers great views and a cooler, breazy location to read a book or sample some of the fino sherry left for us in the fridge.
The location is convenient. We flew in from Seville airport which is just over an hour away and is a fantastic city to visit. Don't miss the cathedral or the Alcazar (beat the queues by paying a little extra for a guided tour).Jerez is less than 30 minutes, where we enjoyed the school of equestrian art which on certain days includes dressage performances where the horses dance to music and colourful pageantry (tickets can be purchased online from the UK). Sandeman's bodega is next door. It takes less than an hour to get to Cadiz which is worth reaching via the ferry from El Puerto de Santa Maria. This is really cheap, solves any car parking problems and gives you a virtually free 30 minute cruise into the town. Cadiz is full of the history you would expect connected with a strategic Spanish port, but take care of your belongings as we had a bag stolen within seconds while we were having lunch.
Arcos de la frontera is the closest town to the villa and is worth exploring. We drove up to the Plaza Del Cabildo, via very narrow roads to the view point looking over the valley. Its worth spending time contemplating the view from the terrace of the parador over a glass of wine or cold beer.
Our days however, always ended meandering back to the peace and quiet of the villa for a G&T, to swim, to read and to BBQ (a very efficient charcoal BBQ is located in the little courtyard at the front of the property).
