Eight close friends. Los Arcos is a beautiful house, well equipped , nice pool and gorgeus view of the mountains. The village is very friendly.
Very steep hill to and from the villa but Isabel or Juan are very helpfull in case one needs transport.
A quiet piece of paradise!
What a wonderful week. We loved the house, the pool, the views. This was the perfect rental. Any cricticism that has come before means that a few of its visitors have had unrealistic expectations of living in rural Spain. Yes, there were a few ants (don't leave food out!) , in our case there was even some unexpected roadworks outside our door for most of the week and no water one day, but you take it in stride. Our hosts were very caring of our comfort and even went as far to treat us to a lovely meal at The Casita restaurant to compensate for the roadworks. All in all, a perfect place to relax for a week. Thank you to a very generous owner for sharing your beautiful home with strangers, and a big thank you to Carolyn for giving us great ideas for day trips. It was great to meet you and yes, it is indeed a small world!
Thank you very much. You are very right and very welcome next time.
Family group of seven. Villa spacious light and airy. Loved the pool being same depth throughout. Any issues we had were quickly resolved. Beautiful village. Climb to the top of the hill through winding lanes behind the Main Square to get an amazing view of the area. Had great Tapas in the bars in the Main Square. Friendliest village I've ever been to. Shops in the village are a bit limited but good enough for topping up supplies. Good meal to be had at the Italian restaurant near to the Villa. Excellent pizzas. Highly recommend the hotel Molino del santo in the next village for a special treat. A little expensive but well worth it. Carolyn and Kevin in the house across the road are very helpful.
Only a few minor points. No storage in the upstairs bedrooms and very little in the kitchen area. OccUpants should probably be made aware of the steep Hill to and from the villa. Could be problematic for elderly or less able.
Overall an excellent holiday venue.
Spacious house in a sleepy little village
We are a group of 8 people (family and friends), who just stayed a week in Los Arcos. We chose the place because of the many positive reviews, but kind of agreed that calling it a luxury house is a bit exaggerated. When we arrived the house smelled a little moldy, and there were dust lying in the corners and cobwebs under the bed (and a spider IN the bed :-)) The smell disappeared after a day, so no big deal. Still not something you expect from a luxury house. The dishwasher didn't work properly, so you had to wash the plates and glasses by hand afterwards. Also, the internet is really slow. Some of us had to do some work while we were there, which was almost impossible, at least if more than one person was online at the same time. Another thing that was a bit inconvenient are the toilets in the rooms. They have no doors. Only a little curtain. Using the toilet by night when your friend is lying just beside felt weird and we usually waited till the next morning. Doors would be nice :-) Also, the kitchen was filled with ants and even though we put our bread in plastic bags the ants usually found a way in. All of us also agreed that the fountain in the pool was annoying. It's very zen and cosy the first five minutes when you arrive, but after a while when you sit by the pool and almost can't hear what each other are saying, it gets really irritating. We asked if they could turn it off, but that wasn't possible. It turns on and off at different times of the day. We made our own homemade solution with some plastic underneath etc in the pool to quiet it a bit. That helped. It may sound like we're nitpicking, but from all the positive reviews we had expected a different standard. Also, many of the things could be easily improved. And now to the good stuff :-) The house is quite big, the rooms are okay and the showers are great. The village is a cosy, little and charming village even though not much is happening. It's a great place if you want to hike in the mountains or visit the caves nearby which several of us loved. If you want to have a really nice dinner, head for Molino del Santo in the next village. The food and the service there is great! Also, the communication with the agent before and after arriving was fine. And when the fountain was off, we very much enjoyed the outdoor area and the pool and had a couple of cosy nights barbecuing.
This is the first review that is not so nice. We put all our effort, together with the local people in Montejaque, in making the stay of our guests in our house as comfortable as possible. You can read it in all the other reviews When you need help you can call Isabel. She is the best and will always help you. When there are major issues please call me. I like to help you. After 10 years of owning this house these comments are a little chocque for us. Because our house is in a mountain village the internet can sometimes be week but you can use the Montejaque internet in a school. It's strong. You can put off the fountain very easily. And cleaning problems I have never heard off. But I will tell Isabel. So she and her team can make an extra cleaning effort. Sorry for the inconvenience!!
Perfect holiday house!
Having seen the photos of this property, our expectations were quite high, but the reality is even than the photos! Los Arcos is a fabulous house - beautifully designed, well-equipped and a pool with the most gorgeous view of the mountains behind. We spent 10 glorious days in Montejaque - a wonderful little village which certainly comes to life during the August Feira - there always seemed to be something going on in the square whenever we walked up the hill! We couldn't have asked more of our holiday - the village is perfectly situated in order to visit Ronda and many of the stunning surrounding Pueblas Blancas. Normally, even though we love a place, we wouldn't necessarily return as there are so many other places in the world to visit, but in Montejaque, and Los Arcos we really found a place that will stay in our hearts forever, and we can't wait to go back. Thank you to Carolyn and Kevin across the road for making us feel so welcome and answering any queries! We will enjoy cooking dishes from your cooking book!
Thank you very much for your nice and kind review. We think you are totally right, Montejaque and the people are so nice and social. The surrounding is wonderful and peaceful. Kevin and Carolyn are the best and nicest neighbours of the world! We hope you will visit our house in the next years. You are very welcome!!!
Excellent luxury house in a great location - perfect holiday!
This is a real luxury house with everything you need especially the pool. Everything was as described, it's big and comfortable for all, we are family of 5 and we had room to spare. Great wifi especially if you have teenagers. The village is small and interesting, nice square, with all you need in terms of shops, bars and restaurants in a village of this size. Lovely friendly restaurant almost next door! The location is great, close to Ronda, a longer drive to Seville (which is worth it) and surrounded by a really impressive landscape.
Communication was great, Carolyn who is the contact replied immediately to any query and was extremely helpful. This is an excellent holiday house.
Thanks for your lovely comments. Very much appreciated! You are very welcome next year!
