“Beautiful home for 2 weeks”
Reviewed 16 September 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Arrived to be met by the owners Javier and Rosario and the best welcome pack we have ever had. The house and terrace are gorgeous with a very welcome pool. Everywhere was spotlessly clean as well as comfortable. We hired a car but were so relaxed and at home in the house we only used it twice. Frigiliana is a beautiful village with loads of characture, small steep cobbled streets, white washed houses decked with colourful flowers and restaurants with terraces overlooking the village and hills. Stunning! Would definitely re visit Frigiliana and stay at Arcos de la Almona again.

“Delightful apartment in Frigiliana”
Reviewed 10 September 2012 for a stay in August 2010
1
person found this review helpful

Arcos is a spacious, well appointed apartment situated at one end of the beautiful old Moorish village of Frigiliana. The apartment has everything necessary for a relaxed, laid back vacation. The terrace with a small plunge pool is a wonderful surprise, a perfect place to spend those long hot summer evenings with a glass of wine, gazing over the rooftops of the village down the valley to the sea.

There are a number of great walks in the area and the old village is a joy to explore and there are a number of good restaurants within easy walking distance.

“Truly a gem of an apartment”
Reviewed 8 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Within a few hours of arriving we knew we had made a mistake booking this apartment for only one week - we should have booked it for two! It is in an ideal location, and the roof terrace with plunge pool is terrific offering great views over the town and to the mountains beyond. Furnishings are perfectly adequate and the property was spotless when we arrived. The owner Javier and his wife are very friendly and nothing appeared to be too much trouble for them - they genuinely want their guests to enjoy their stay - we certainly did.

“PERFECTO”
Reviewed 17 July 2012 for a stay in July 2012

This property is perfect in every way. On the edge of this stunning village 'Arcos De La Almona' has every amenity you could possibly want. The plunge pool on the terrace was very welcome on the hot July days and the owners Javier and Rosario were there when you needed them but invisible when you didn't. I can't recommend this property highly enough

Thank you Javier and Rosario, you truly are wonderful people. See you in June 2013

“The Perfect Match”
Reviewed 11 July 2012 for a stay in June 2012

An absolutely outstanding choice for a couple wanting to be stay in Frigiliana, and to be honest who would not want to stay in Frigiliana. Javier and Rosario make you feel most welcome without be intruding. Their attention to detail and the lovely touches they add make the stay even more memorable. The house was perfect for us; this was our third stay in Frigiliana and of both previous occasions we had promised ourselves that we would stay in town next time. Well this place fits the bill perfectly; will definitely use again. Javier and Rosario thank you for a wonderful stay.
