“Perfect Stay”
Reviewed 20 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

My husband and I had a wonderful time in this charming town house which is in the historical part of Frigliana. We stayed here the first week in September.
We were met by Javier the owner who was delightful and friendly, he showed us around and we were also given a welcome pack (we have stayed in many villas and have never had this before it was very thoughtful thank you).
The house had enough space for our needs with all the amenities you could hope for. But the STAR was the outside terrace it was a great space with plenty of options for relaxing in or out of the sun along with a plunge pool. the views were breath taking it would be hard to find a more striking view.
We were very close to some great restaurants The Garden and El Adarve which we visited twice each and again had wonderful views along with delicious food. I would also recommend Marisqueria El Sacristan which was at the bottom of the town.
This Villa is ideal for a couple and you did not need a car but do need to be fit for the hills.
We really enjoyed our stay and would thoroughly recommend this villa and hope to return in the near future.
Thank you for a memorable week.

“EN EL CENTRO DEL HERMOSO PEUBLO BLANCO”
Reviewed 29 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

people found this review helpful

My wife and I stayed at this beautiful apartment for a week during the Festival Tres Culturas. As the town was going to be busy with limited parking the owner, Javier very kindly offered to pick us up from the airport. The apartment is named after the row of arched windows that throw light into the american style lounge, kitchen,dinner area which were well presented and very clean. WiFi and satellite TV with British channels were provided. The bedroom has a very comfortable double bed with ample drawer and hanging space. The bathroom with shower cubicle is beautifully tiled and has a light funnel to provide illumination. The 'wow' is when you walk out onto the terrace which has lovely views to the mountains, a plunge pool which is wonderful on a hot afternoon and ample sunbathing space with two comfy loungers supplied. There is also a covered porch with table and chairs to escape from the heat of the sun. The terrace is decked with beautiful plants which Rosario has a passion for. At the quieter end of the village, you have all the bars and restaurants within a 5 minute walk, but enjoy the silence when you return home at the end of an evening. And don't forget the welcome pack of wine, beer, milk, water and enough cheese and meats to get you by for your first couple of days.There are plenty stores in the village to replenish your stocks, but we did not need to. Rosario and Javier are lovely hosts who want to ensure that you enjoy your stay with them and they are very proud of their village. They are always there if you need them but are not intrusive in any manner.

Everything about our holiday at Arcos de almona was fabulous and the experience summarised by so many other reviews. Lovely hosts javier and family were welcoming, warm, helpful and unobtrusive. Nice welcome pack, spotless apartment with everything you need. Fantastic location with supermarkets and restaurants on the doorstep. Wonderful terrace with amazing views, sun or shade all day/evening. We will return either later this year or next. Muchas gracias!

“Beautiful accommodation, facilities, plunge pool and large terrace...can't fault it!!”
Reviewed 9 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

My second experience of Arcos de la Almona, previously in 2005 and the place is as beautiful as ever. Extremely well equipped...all facilities we could require. As it was early in the year we found the evenings rather chilly however Javier and his son, Nicholas, scoured the village for logs and we had an amazing log fire (2 or 3 evenings) which kept us snuggly!! Daytimes were tremendous out on the well equipped terrace along with occasional dips in the plunge pool..yes it was actually warm enough to do that despite cool evenings! And of course, Frigiliana itself, we couldn't wish for more bars, restaurants and cafe's. Ate out every evening, some breakfast times..just glorious! Shall go again...but not such a long gap next time!
