Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Sierra de Grazalema, Spain your home away from home

The house was really well equipped, loo rolls, kitchen rolls, condiments, oils and even a shopping trolley on wheels which proved useful for the supermarket trips. Arcos is a very friendly place with more than enough bars and restaurants to keep you fed and watered and all within a few minutes' stroll of the front door. It was incredibly hot and it's a steep walk up from the car park, but well worth renting the space for your stay and maybe we sweated off a few of the calories from all the lovely food and drink! We did visit the beach at the lake twice and can highly recommend it for cooling down late afternoon - the water was like a bath. A trip to Ronda is a must too. Would happily return here if we find ourselves in this part of Spain again. Isabelle gave lots of really helpful information and directions so we were sorry that we did not manage to meet her this time! Finally, a drink on that balcony, (a little table for drinks/snacks would be a useful addition maybe?) with that view, watching the sunset is a memory to be treasured!

                                                                                                    5 of 5
                                                                                                    A big thank you to Pepa the owner who always responded quickly and was helpful. We spent 2 weeks at the property and found plenty to do to pass the time in the area with 2 teenage children. The property is a 3 bedroom end of terrace with 2 bathrooms and a small kitchen which is suitable for its purpose. As the house is in the town it can a bit noisy (especially the very efficient early rubbish collection service 7 days a week) if you have the windows open which often you needed to do as the property does not have airconditioning. Fans do help but could do with one more as 2 for 3 bedrooms led to interesting bargaining between the children. There is parking in front of the house at the bottom of the stairs but it is a busy little street opposite the doctors so other than loading and unloading it is easier to leave in the free car park a 2 minute walk away. Whist in Zahara we went canoeing and the Discovery Centre on the Reservoir also does loads of other activities. Santiago at the Playito did a wonderful horse riding trek. Note Santiago does not speak English so if you cannot speak at least Pigeon spanish get someone to book for you after that speaking horse was fine. The Playito itself was not our cup of tea but if you are going to give it a visit avoid weekends like the plague as it is just too busy (we drove past one day) With young children though it is a safe environment. We enjoyed using the public pool in Zahara which has good grounds or if you want a pool with a view go the Grazalema public pool or pop to Hotel Tadeos in Zahara for a drink and they may let you use there infinity pool for a dip. We had a great holiday and will remeber our time in Zahara for all the right reasons so Thank You

Julie and Warren were fantastic hosts and went out of their way to make sure the holiday went smoothly - the pool and gardens and setting were fantastic - very relaxing and it's in a good location as you can get to bigger towns or the national park or the village is on your doorstep for shopping etc. Recommend it highly.
