“Perfect cosy B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 December 2009

Los Arcos is located in a little village in a middle of Sierra Nevada. Even in December weather may be nice, that allows uncredibly beautiful views. Our short stay was just perfect in every aspect. The hosts were extremely welcoming, friendly (incl. a good deal of patience for our 7 year old daughter!) and helpful in every way. The accommodation was perfectly clean and comfortable. Spanish breakfast was huge. Cold and hot drinks were generously offered during the day.
We are looking forward to my next stay at Los Arcos.

Having arrived exhausted after a hard day's cycling, it was the perfect place to rest for a couple of days. much of our recovery involved beer and wine on the terrace that allows beautiful views of the valley.

Jill and David were so accomodating doing everything to make sure we enjoyed our stay.

We were both absolutely delighted with our stay at Los Arcos; so nice to be greeted by someone with a genuine interest and enthusiasm for walking in the area, which was the main reason for our stay. The building has been refurbished superbly and gives you a real sense of Andalusian grandeur, right down to the ornate tiles and chestnut beams. If it's walking you've come for and then a bit of luxury after grasping for one of the 3,000ers, or even one of the beautiful lower- level villages, then this is the place for you. Unmatched in the area.

This guest house is located in a picturesque mountain landscape near to Granada and Almeria. I was after a comfortable and relaxing break in a property with charm and easy access to the stunning countryside. Los Arcos ticked all the boxes. The capacity of the hosts for indulgence of their guests and enthusiasm for their business means no corner is cut and no detail is left forgotten. A fridge kept well stocked with cold beers at no extra cost was a welcome touch after a day in the scorching hills. A tube of handcream in the bathroom was also nice since this was something air travel liquid restrictions had forced me to leave out of my packing. The breakfast is top quality and I can't think of anything missing. However, undoubtedly the appeal of the place lies largely in the couple who run it. They take you in like a member of the family and share their home, a beautifully renovated labour of love, with you. Their local knowledge particularly regarding walking opportunities also proved invaluable.

Los Arcos, in the pretty, off-the-beaten-track, mountain village of Valor is a very well run B and B.

The accommodation was immaculately clean and the welcome very friendly indeed. When I stayed, the rooms were priced reasonably.

As menioned elsewhere, the owners run guided walking holidays. However, Los Arcos would also make a good base for exploring the Alpujarras independently, on foot or by car.

I would not hesitate to return.

This was my 4th visit to Los Arcos and I am already planning my next visit. I love the village of Valor, it is so unspoilt and you really can relax and enjoy the wonderful scenery. Jill and Dave Drummie are the perfect hosts and nothing is to much trouble. The house is so comfortable and the view from the roof terrace is stunning. The food is amazing with a wonderful buffet breakfast, delicious packed lunch for our walking trips, tea and cake on the terrace when we got back, followed in the evening with a 3 course gourmet meal with wine, and the great company of our hosts Jill and Dave, I really didn't want to come home!
