    Beautiful Moorish heritage seen on these tiles.
    That's how you enter the living room - through a hole in the floor.
    I was born in a place called Altavista.
    Oh, you do need a fireplace in Andalusia, you know, it's... brr... i-it's frrreezing ;-)
    Property description
    Arcos de la Frontera
    Holiday Rental House – 
    2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
    Alta Vista, Spanish for 'high views', is a sugar cube-looking house on top of the cliff in the upper town of Arcos de la Frontera, one of the famous 'white villages of Andalusia', though Arcos is very much a town. The house is built on four levels reminiscent of an English town house though one with genuine Spanish character and features retaining, however, a bright, spacious, fresh and modern feel. There is, on ground level, the entrance, an in-house garage with, on top of it, a loft which interestingly once was a swimming pool and you'll notice the modern double glazed doors and windows, unusual in Andalusia. Going up a pretty staircase flanked by Moorish tiles is the living room spanning the whole width of the house with a large, Moorish inspired fireplace (not that... more

    How to get there
    Airport: Jerez, Seville, Gibraltar or Málaga.: 0.0 km
    Nearest airport is Jerez but you will find that few flights are going to this destination. Much better is Seville, about 1 hour and 20 minutes away, while Gibraltar and Málaga, 2 and 2 and a half hours away are much further away.

    It is strongy recommended you rent a car. Motoring in Spain is, compared with other well developped European countries, simply heaven. We have a fine network of secundary roads with almost no traffic on them and to explore them at your pace through a scenery of olive, cork, orange and lemon trees, with a gentle breeze moving the palm trees, visiting those lovely white washed villages and making every now and again a tapas break whilst meeting the locals is simply motoring, or motorcycling, at its finest. BUT, and it's an important point, you must, unless yo...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago for a stay in April 2015

We stayed in Alta Vista during Semana Santa 2015. Our host, Pedro, speaks wonderful English and couldn't have been more helpful, both before and during our stay. We loved the apartment itself, which is split over four levels (entry, kitchen & sitting room, bedrooms & bathroom and rooftop terrace). This, coupled with the fact that it is located in the... more

We stayed for a night in this lovely house and recommend to travelers. The house is very well located, right on top of the town and fully equipped. The view is stunning with it wonderful Terese. The landlord was very kind and helpful. The pricing a real bargain. Kind regards, Fred more

First of all the owner was far more cooperative then many we have stayed with. He was fluent in English (and other languages) and was always on hand if we needed anything. Thus is unlike a couple of recent experiences earlier this year and last summer when the owners at that time were not that interested. The apartment in general... more

Management response:

The kitchen is now extensily equipped, even beyond what the average traveller would normally expect. The garage, well, I couldn't make it any easier to turn into but, quite frankly, it is fair to say that a small car alone would not make it into the garage - it needs human input in the way of a little bit of... more
