We had such a great time...Jill and David had family in town while we were there...all were WONDERFUL people! Valor is a quaint, little village...not a ton to do there. The really special heart of Los Arcos (Valor )are the hosts. They had a birthday dinner for my mother, could not have been NICER-ate outside under twinkling stars with LOVELY... More

A lovely small B&B perfect for the overnight we had there and we would certainly return and stay longer. We had our own balcony but there is also a magnificent roof terrace with lots of chairs/loungers and the most amazing view. Our hosts were welcoming and extremely helpful. Breakfast was excellent with lots of choice. Nothing was too much trouble... More

Many thanks for such a positive review. It's nice to see that all Jill's hard work with the plants on the roof terrace doesn't go unnoticed. It would be lovely to see you for a bit longer next time. More

Valor got our vote as the prettiest village that we visited during our 8 day walk, and Los Arcos was the perfect place to stay to enjoy it. Beautfully decorated, spotlessly clean and wonderful hosts in David and Jill. The room was spacious, light and airy and the balcony was a real treat. I also loved the roof top deck... More

It is very kind of you to take the time to write something about your stay with us, especially when you say such lovely things. I agree with you that Jill's lemon drizzle cake is to die for. Winter now for you in Australia, whereas our summer is just starting! More

I returned to Los Arcos for my 12th visit. The hospitality was as good as ever and I had a great holiday. Jill and David are such welcoming hosts and nothing is too much trouble. It is a beautiful village and completely unspoilt. The surrounding area is wonderful for walking and I am hoping to return in October

This beautifully designed house was built with love and detail in order to best accommodate its future guests. It's obvious that David and Jill have filled this bed and breakfast with love and care about the comfort of their guests. I don't think we could have found a nicer place to get away from everything and just relax. It was... More

Thank you so much for this lovely review. It was really good to have you here for a few days. You really took advantage of being in the centre of the Alpujarras, and seemed to enjoy exploring the area. We hope to see you again. More

Meticulously and lovingly renovated old building with thoroughly modern amenities. Breakfast with baked goods freshly prepared by hosts were wonderful (Jill can prepare gluten-free and/or dairy-free ones if requested). Valor is a charming tiny town beautifully located in the Alpuyrras region with many other interested small towns to visit (can do a nice circuit in a day). While we didn't... More

After a long day's cycling, we were delighted to experience the warm welcome from David and his complimentary beers on the terrace whilst admiring the fantastic views. This is a delightful place to stay - newly renovated with modern bathrooms, well-appointed rooms and an inclusive comprehensive breakfast. David and Jill are great hosts with great local knowledge and their place... More

Hi Rich. Thanks for finding the time to write about your stay with us. I was unseasonably warm when you came, especially for cycling, so I’m sure a cold beer hit the spot! I’m glad you are home safely, and hopefully refreshed for the second half of the Christmas term. More

We were on the first day of 8 days of hiking from village to village. David picked us up, as promised, just before Yegen and drove us to Los Arcos. We were soaking wet from getting caught in an afternoon downpour. Nothing could have been better than being welcomed in to Jill and David's home. Jill found a place for... More
