Despite all the pros, that have been described at length by other reviewers, such as true tranquility, majestic building(s), good size swimming pool etc. one cannot overlook that there is a lot of neglect, disrepair and - very simply - dirt around. Bring your own domestos and cleaning utensils. We found blobs of hair in the shower and dead insects... More

The place is in a fantastic countryside location: the night sky alone makes it worth a visit! The views across the hills and the sunrise and sunsets. The rooms are fairly basic, beds a bit firm, pillows a bit thin. There is an lovely courtyard and refreshing swimming pool. There a re a few wasps nests that could do with... More

Beautiful Cortijo in lovely countryside. We spent four nights here at the beginning of August as a family of four. Had a few problems with the original rooms allotted to us, but this was very quickly sorted without fuss and we were moved to a family room with stunning views, a terrace and it was very quiet. A great place... More

Spent 3 nights here to visit a local fighting bull ranch & the lovely old hill town of Arcos de la Frontera. Rooms are simple but adequate. Pool area was relaxing. Buildings have many original features. Breakfast is charged separately but unless you want to drive a few kilometres, there is no alternative. You can squeeze your own orange juice,... More

We ended up on this property by chance, and it was one of our favorite stays. The farm was charming, with stunning views of the countryside. The room was comfortable and the price was more than reasonable. I would love to stay there in warm weather, and enjoy the pool and magical surroundings. Please note that you need a car... More

The pros: fantastically located in very easy driving distance from Jerez, Cadiz, Sevilla, the "white villages" (Grazalema, El Bosque ...) etc. Apart from the inhabitants of the cortijo and the odd tractor (they also run a farm) you can hear nothing but the sounds of nature. Very useful swimming pool. Extremely relaxed owner-managers who try to accommodate whatever is requested.... More

A week here on a singing course was idyllic. Located within easy distance of Cadiz, Seville, Jerez and Grazalema, the temptation to stay by the swimming pool reading from the library or playing with Toby, the sandal-stealing puppy, proved impossible to resist, though I did make the effort to visit Seville, Grazalema and Arcos. Self-catering casas and apartments are available,... More

I cannot speak highly enough of this place. My husband and I discovered it a few years ago and have visited four times since. We married there in may 2013 and it was perfect. The receptionist, remedios, was fantastic, as were all the staff. We stayed for a week with all our guests and it is fair to say everyone... More

Brilliant setting, lovely hidden away accommodation. Remember to bring provisions as service is limited but once you are here then it's heaven. No busy hotel type settings, pet friendly small and perfectly run. if you do need food etc The is a short journey to the town where you can stock up. Hot and quiet just what you need. Limited...

I recently dragged 50 friends and family from the UK to Arcos for my wedding at El Cortijo Barranco. It was an incredible venue that left our friends speechless. It is situated in the middle of nowhere which created the perfect intimate wedding atmosphere. One of our guests is disabled and was amazed by the lengths the staff went to... More
