We stayed for just one night in November. Jill and David's aim in life seems to be to run the best Bed and Breakfast in Spain and they may well have succeeded, not having been to all the others I could not say for certain. From the way they have remodelled the interior to the best petit pain au chocolate... More

We recently spent almost two weeks on a white village to village trek in the Alpujarras and one night was spent in Valor at the Los Arcos B&B. The town was lovely with a choice of restaurants and cafes plus other essentials. Los Arcos was the lodging highlight of the trip. Jill and David were exceptionally helpful hosts serving a... More

Walking in the Alpujarra for a week, we stayed in 5 different hotels and B&Bs but none came even close to Los Arcos. David and Jill are the perfect hosts, their little hotel is beautiful, clean and comfortable and we were made to feel at home from the moment we arrived, it was like staying with friends. The food was... More

We only stayed Valor for one night but wanted to write this review as this B&B is exceptional. Super friendly hosts who have thought of everything in creating this really comfortable place to stay in the centre of the village.

An exceptional place to stay. Within a few minutes of meeting David and Jill, we were treated like family. Their home is your home, with cool tiled floors, large luxurious bedrooms and en suites, and the most amazing roof terrace with lots of different seating areas and amazing views. Dinner was served on the roof terrace, cooked by Jill, and... More

Excellent on all levels? The hosts are extremely welcoming, knowledgable and entertaining. If you enjoy walking then this is the place for you, experienced guides providing a whole range of information. Food and accommodation equivalent to, if not better than a 5 star.

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

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

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
