Highly recommended

We had a great week in this beautiful property. It’s generally very well equipped and comfortable. Beautiful views from the tower room and very well positioned for trips to Arcos Jerez and Seville. Highly recommended.

Lovely house

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and tidy, and very well equipped. It was easy to drive to. It was a perfect base for exploring the wider area; we enjoyed trips out to Jerez and Cadiz and also popped into Arcos de la Frontera, which was nice. There are plenty supermarkets within easy reach of the house. The area around the house is very peaceful and quiet. The views are of rolling hills, trees, farmland, with mountains in the distance. It was lovely to eat and drink in the tower room and enjoy the views. We especially enjoyed the pool, which is very big with shallow and deep ends so useable for swimming or just splashing about! We spent most of our time lounging by the pool and then using the pool to cool down - perfect! We would recommend the house to anyone and wouldn’t hesitate to return. Thank you!

Maison spacieuse, au calme, proche d'Arcos de la F

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine très agréable dans cette maison claire et spacieuse, au calme, tout en étant très proche d'Arcos. La cour devant la maison, le jardin, ainsi que la pièce ouverte sur trois côtés, dans la tour, qui bénéficie constamment d'un vent frais, ainsi que la maison elle-même offrent la fraîcheur souhaitable. La maison est bien équipée, les lits confortables. Seul (petit) inconvénient: le bruit du vent (probablement parce que nous sommes venus en avril) dans les fenêtres le soir (il faut alors les fixer avec un carton pour les empêcher de vibrer). La maison est idéalement située pour visiter les villages blancs. Nous y retournerons certainement lors de notre prochain séjour en Andalousie et la recommandons.

Relaxing in the countryside

  • 4 of 5

A spacious villa set in the countryside yet only 15' drive from he white-walled town of Arcos de la Frontera, with easy access to Jerez, Cadiz and Seville from there. There is a small shop and a bar in the hamlet that is 5' drive down the track from the villa on the main road The villa is clean and spacious with a pleasant garden surrounded by fields. The pool is a good size, and an equally welcome feature is the tower room, which even on the hottest days provided respite from the Spanish sun. Highly recommended for a comfortable and relaxing stay.

Rural tranquillity, yet easily accessible

  • 4 of 5

We have now been to this villa 3 times and will come again. The house is spacious and very well equipped (air con a bonus) and very easy to relax in. It is in a pretty, rural location with great views from the pool terrace and especially from the elevated tower room. We love the peace and quiet and the opportunity to see a variety of birds. The pool is a good size and suitable both for 'proper' swimming and for children to play in. Though in a rural location, the house is straightforward to reach and easily accessible from a range of airports (we use Seville). Arcos is nearby and well worth visiting and also provides all the useful things you need for a self catering holiday. A little further afield but easily reached are historic Jerez to the west, with its bodegas and the Spanish riding school, east will take you into the stunning Grazalema national park with Cadiz and the beaches of the Costa de la Luz to the south and of course Seville to the north. Now that the children are older we have been able to go horse riding near Prado del Rey (20 minutes) and kayaking on Arcos Lake (15 minutes) and there is also the aqua park near El Puerto de Santa Maria. You could easily spend all the time sightseeing as there is lots to see and do, but we also love just being in the garden and by the pool. The house represents excellent value for money and the owners are very helpful. If you are looking for an active nightlife scene or don't want to hire a car, this is not the villa for you but overall this is a great place to stay and we recommend it.
