“A perfect retreat”
Reviewed 19 November 2017 for a stay in October 2017

We stayed in the apartment for six days at the beginning of a long vacation, and it was a perfect kickoff.

The location was great for exploring nearby towns -- Ronda, Jerez, Olvera. At night we could walk the quiet streets of Arcos to dinner. And, of course, we could sit on the terrace and bask in that magnificent view.

Isabelle made sure we had all that we needed. She met us, helped get our bags to the apartment and then guided us to our parking spot. Her restaurant recommendations were terrific. There are maps and guidebooks in the apartment, and she can tell you where to go for pretty much anything.

I especially appreciated the shelf full of books. After chatting with us when we arrived, Isabelle pulled a book out that she thought I might like. She was right! I finished it while I was there.

It was such a pleasure (& thrill!) to have an author to stay at Casa Vista Castillo so I am very glad I managed to pull the right book off the shelf for you to read! It´s always lovely to hear that our guests managed to both relax and enjoy their time in Arcos, as well as seeing some of the beautiful towns in the area. We are quite spoilt for choice around here! I very much look forward to reading your book that you kindly gave me a signed copy of...¡gracias a tí!
A big abrazo to you both.

“Loved our stay at Casa Vista Castillo and Arcos...”
Reviewed 25 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We stayed for a week in late September. The apartment has large living area and the deck that opens off it has an amazing view. This was actually one of the reasons why we chose Casa Vista Castillo, as we imagined days and nights enjoying the view and watching the world go by. We were not disappointed. The apartment is well equipped, it would be possible to enjoy cooking in the kitchen, but we chose not to do too much. Close proximity to the centre of the old town's bars and restaurants encouraged us to eat out more than we had originally planned. We also loved the space and privacy of the apartment, there was only the two of us, however the apartment could comfortably accommodate four adults or a family.
When we arrived in Arcos Isabelle took the time to explain how to make the most of our visit. She provided wonderful recommendations to allow us to enjoy the town and the surrounding area. A standout for us was our trip to the beach at Bolonia. We had not previously heard of this area and it was a lovely surprise for us.
It is important to note that it is not possible to drive your car to the apartment. It is an old town with narrow streets and so one must be prepared to walk. Having a garage available to park the car is a bonus as there is very little public car parking space available in the town.
To sum up, we loved the apartment, the view, the people of Arcos and the position of Arcos in relation to the surrounding area. It is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy Andalusian hospitality and landscape and we would love to return one day.

“Perfect base for exploring white villages, beaches and sherry triangle”
Reviewed 10 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Our family (2 teens) stayed for 4 days here and wish we could have stayed longer. The apartment itself is lovely. The living/dining/kitchen area is larger than in the photos with high ceilings and beautiful lighting and furniture. It was a vacation to just be in this room. Our kids enjoyed the rather large 'loft' bedroom - accessible by a winding staircase - with lots of storage and great views. We loved the town of Arcos itself and the quiet evenings after most tourists had left. There are many great local bars and restaurants. And we enjoyed the cookies made by the nuns at the convent just 1 minute from the apartment.

We explored other towns in the area - Ronda, Grazelema, Jerez (for sherry tasting and the horse show), Cadiz, Tarifa, Bolonia, etc and were very happy to return to our quiet Arcos.

The owners made it easy to have our rental car in Arcos. It's a walk downhill from the apartment to the garage (and back uphill when you are tired at the end of the day) but totally worth it for people watching and to be able to stay in Arcos and explore the area.

We are so happy that you and your family enjoyed your stay at Casa Vista Castillo and that the kids loved their "turret"! You are so right, Arcos makes a perfect base for exploring this area of Spain being so centrally located and we´re glad you managed to make the most of it during your 4 days here. You are and your family were a delight to host and we hope to welcome you again! Really glad you made it to Bolonia...voted one of the best beaches in Spain for a very good reason (or several when you take in those views to Morocco as well as the Roman Ruins behind!).
We hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip...un abrazo fuerte x

“A charmer with the most incredible views”
Reviewed 19 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The pictures are absolutely true. We found ourselves planning our day around being on the terrace for evening photos and to marvel at the scenery below with a glass of wine in hand.The apartment's location in the old part of the town is quaint in so many ways. Its high ceiling and beams in the main room exude an Old World feel.

We especially enjoyed outdoor dining nearby on a small square (Plaza Boticas) and along Calle Nueva. We had a rental car for visiting other hills towns and were grateful for Isabelle and Marco having a reserved garage parking spot within a reasonable walking distance.

Isabelle provided a lot of special touches in the kitchen that we appreciated even though we did no cooking. We washed a few loads of laundry and everything worked flawlessly.

Isabelle was a fantastic hostess in other ways as well: her pre-trip communications, her taking plenty of time to get us oriented to Arcos, and most notably, her willingness to receive replacement credit cards from the USA after my wife's wallet was stolen in Sevilla.

Anyone staying in the old part of Arcos needs to understand that it's a medieval town with very narrow streets and challenging turns even without pedestrians mixed in. But that goes hand-in-hand with the charm of living like the locals.
