Atmospheric Arcos

  • 5 of 5

A stunning White Village (Pueblos Blancos) of Andalucia, Arcos de la Frontera is a step back in time for those used to the fast pace of modern living. Tiny cobbled streets, whitewashed walls, sit atop of a high ridge giving dramatic views over the lake to the North and the rolling plains to the South.

We flew into Malaga and hired a car and took a stunning drive through the hills via Ronda (recommended). I had my Sat Nav with me which helped until we got into Arcos. A small map had been provided to locate the house / garage but I guess both I and the Sat Nav weren't prepared for the very narrow streets and one way system - we got lost. I was glad we had not upgraded the hire car from the small VW Polo to anything bigger as it only just fit through some of the narrow sections ! Look at the route in Arcos on Google Maps street view as it helped us find the way. Pleased to see Juan Miguel (Caretaker) waiting for us as we were by then 30 mins late.

No 6 Calle Bovedas is on a one way street and one of the few houses with a garage. The locals park anywhere they can, including outside No6 garage blocking you in - the tip from Juan Miguel was to leave the garage shutter half way open so they can see its in use. We were blocked a couple of times - hit the horn - they quickly moved the cars !

The accommodation is bright, clean and airy set over three floors. An en-suite double room and large garage on the ground floor, A double bedroom, lounge (fold out bed settee), kitchen and bathroom on the 1st floor and a small single bedroom and roof terrace on the 2nd floor. Lovely views from the sun trap terrace are over the rooftops to the lake and haciendas in the hills beyond. Decor is principally white with splashes of Spanish colours in wall hangings, posters, pictures.

There is wifi at the property - Took a while to get working - had to phone the IT helper who re-set something. Kitchen was well equipped for us to prep meals and there was a Fridge / Freezer dishwasher and washing machine. The property is very secure - I had a lot of expensive camera equipment :) .

We ate in Arcos several times and found the local food very good - try the Parador Hotel - stunning view while you eat. A large Carrefour on edge of town has all you need and a local shop is 30 steps from the door.

Brits unless you speak Spanish use Google Translate / phrase book as few people speak English.

Overall loved it - recommended as a base for your holiday in Andalucia

Lovely location at the top of white hill town

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was on three levels with two bedrooms and two baths, and an extra twin bed near the entrance to a rooftop terrace. The staircases and floors were marble. There was a nice kitchen, which included a clothes dryer (with a clothesline on the spacious terrace), and a comfortable living room suitable for families or college students. Arcos is a charming town, with very narrow streets. The owner provided information on the best places to eat. Her suggestions were very good and the food was inexpensive and just a short walk from the apartment. We loved the town and enjoyed the apartment, which because of its hilltop location, is best suited to a relaxing stay rather than a place from which to visit the surrounding area.

I can highly recommed the

  • 5 of 5

The appartment is nice with everything you need. There is a terrace on the roof where breakfast and evenning coffee can be enjoyed. The appartment is central in the old Arcos, so you have to pass through some narrow streets to get there - so do not rent a Caddilac :-)

We where guided to the place by a very friendly local citizen without problems, but use a little bit of time before getting there to find out how to get to the meeting point - that will help you a lot.

Very charming house in historic center of Arcos

  • 5 of 5

Very nicely restored house in the middle of the old town in Arcos, 3 min from the Cathedrale and a fantastic mirador. Sophie is a lovely host and provided everything we needed. We felt very much at home and especially enjoyed the roof top terrace. Thanks, Sophie!

La casa es muy acogedora y con mucha luz natural. Vistas preciosas al embalse desde la azotea. Y la ubicación es excelente en pleno casco histórico.

Buena climatización y camas muy cómodas. Bien equipado, todo en buen estado y limpio.

supoer logement

  • 5 of 5

logement spacieux, très propre, très bonne literie, bien équipé, avec une superbe vue de la terrasse au deuxième étage. Idéal pour deux couples, mais sur plusieurs niveaux, alors attention si vous souffrez des genoux.

Arcos est très joli, et bien situé pour une semaine de visites en Andalousie. Je vous le recommande.

Météo très chaude en aout.
