Description

This traditional manor house is located on a pretty, cobbled street a short stroll from the main square in the old quarter of Arcos de la Frontera, one of the finest and most dramatically situated white villages in Andalucia. The manor house, which dates back to the early 18th century, has a splendid rooftop terrace which affords stunning views to the nearby cathedral and out across the plain.

One enters the house into a lovely tiled patio with carved stone columns, antique furnishings and a selection of potted plants. Access to all six bedrooms is via the original, narrow, winding staircase.

Each bedroom is en-suite, airconditioned and simply but charmingly decorated with elements such as Arabic tiles on the walls, antique furniture, exposed wooden beams, terracotta floors, colourful rugs and shuttered windows. Two of the rooms are suites, both being more spacious than the standard rooms and one of which has a fully equipped kitchen. Breakfast as well as tasty tapas with wine can be enjoyed (weather permitting) on the rooftop terrace overlooking the historic town of Arcos.

One of Andalucia's most dramatically positioned pueblos blancos (white villages), Arcos balances atop a rocky limestone ridge, its whitewashed houses and stone castle walls stopping abruptly as a sheer cliff face plunges down to the fertile valley of the river Guadalete below.

Declared a national historic-artistic monument in 1962 in recognition of its exceptional architecture and impressive location, the old town is a tangled labyrinth of cobbled streets that lead up to a sandstone castle, the Castillo de los Arcos. As you'd expect from such a spectacular vantage point, there are exhilarating views over the town, the rolling plain below and the Serranía de Ronda.

Although its time under the Moors was one of its most successful, Arcos has had a long history of occupation, as shown by the discovery of numerous archaeological remains from the Neolithic, Bronze Age, Tartessian, Phoenician and Roman periods. Plentiful water and its superb defensive hilltop location were the main attractions for settlers.

Among the most memorable of Arcos's pretty and often strikingly narrow streets are the alley-like Calle Cuna and Calle Maldonaldo, lined with elegant palacios built by the town's 18th-century nobility and overhung by wrought-iron rejas of windows.

Tapas bars in the old town are concentrated on or near the central Callejón de las Monjas. Try the Mesón El Patio, an atmospheric cave-like bar near the Santa María church that serves good-value tapas. If you want something more formal, one of the most upmarket restaurants in town is El Convento on Marques de Torresoto, which is in a 17th-century palace and has plenty of game dishes on the menu. The terrace at the luxurious Parador on Plaza del Cabildo is the place to go for a leisurely drink in style and enjoy the best views in Arcos.

Down below the town is the Guadalete river lined with olive and orange groves. There is also a reservoir (embalse), the Lago de Arcos, which is good for a swim in summer. Part of the reservoir is a protected area, the Cola del Embalse de Arcos Natural Area.
