Great spot for family break
We stayed for three weeks and had glorious sunny warm weather. Surroundings were very dry and rocky as you’d expect after the hot summer. Loved all the cotton fields. We felt at home in the house immediately. Sunrise and sunset views from the tower were gorgeous. We loved day trips to Cádiz, Vejer and into Arcos (we’d come from Jerez which is nearby and also lovely). Wonderful falconry experience in Zahara de la Sierra called Skywings. Thanks for a great stay.
thank you so much for your lovely review. We are always happy to receive such good feedback and it is really satisfying to know you and your family had a great holiday in our house.We always welcome returning guests if you ever consider a further visit in the future.
Excellent escape! We loved it! Arcos de la Frontera beautiful and within easy driving to Grezamela, Cadiz, Jerez!
Would definitely recommend.
Fred thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. It is always good to hear back from guests, especially when they have enjoyed their stay so much as to award 5 stars. We always look forward to having returning guests if you so chose to any time in the future. It was a pleasure to host you and your family at our house. regards Jacinta
Lovely holiday home for a relaxing vacation
This is a spacious home that is very well equipped. It is located in the beautiful countryside and has a great pool where you can relax and unwind.
Great and quiet house in a very good location
We (family of 5) visited the house for the second time. Once again, we very much appreciated the quietness and uniqueness of the Location. From this place, it is very convenient to reach both the seaside as well as the hiking tours in Grazalema. Jerez and Arcos are nearby. Certainly worth a visit - hopefully we will be able to visit a third time... Car is needed for this house.
Rest and Relaxation, deep in the Spanish countryside
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).
Thank you Martin for the lovely review of your stay at my house. So glad you enjoyed the facilities, and your comments about things to do in the area are really helpful for future guests.
Always look forward to receiving returning guests if you so chose to any time in the future.
Regards to you both
Rural tranquility, great pool, highly recommended
Highly recommended. With its wonderful, peaceful and private location, this spacious property provided us with everything we needed for a great holiday. We really enjoyed the large private swimming pool. The house has plenty of shaded seating areas; we particularly enjoyed the tower room and courtyard. Overall the house was cool despite it being particularly hot during our stay; the aircon and ceiling fans in the bedrooms helped keep us cool at night. A large selection of books and DVD added to the opportunities to relax and chill.
