“Lovely place, lovely people”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

I had a few wonderful days in this hotel in Arcos de la Frontera. A guest house providing harmony and a special atmosphere in every corner and every room, each of them decorated in a different style. Great view over the lake, great service, I really felt like home there!
Having breakfast on a fresh summer morning, with the smell of jasmine and the view over the lake is priceless, an unforgettable experience. It's amazing to be that far away from home and still feel like home. This guest house is to me recommended!

The host of Casa de Bovedas, Remi, has poured a lifetime of life experiences into his wonderful guesthouse. We did not have the chance to meet his wife, but together they have clearly put a lot of love and attention into creating one the most wonderful guest houses I have ever had the pleasure of staying at.

A genuine and authentic quality pervades the guest house and you can feel that as soon as you enter the patio through the old wooden door. It only grows with the time you stay. The potted plants, the comfortable sitting areas, the relaxing balcony with splendid views over the valley, and all the details and collected objects that are consciously put into place and make the spaces come to life.

Our room was comfortable, charming and tastefully decorated and had a lovely little balcony with a great view.

From conversations with Remi you get the feeling he is not necessarily trying to please his guests with excellent quality, so much as that is the person he prefers himself to be. And seemingly effortless, that is the atmosphere he creates by simply being himself. When he put a lovely breakfast on our table in the morning, we asked him how he was doing today. His answer: "a bit better than yesterday, hopefully, but not as good a tomorrow; always trying to be a bit better every day."

We have traveled all over the world and stayed at countless hotels and guesthouses, but Casa de Bovedas stands out as something special. We cannot recommend it enough.

We were sorry to have to leave and would have love to stay longer, if only to hear more stories and wise words about Remi's experiences in life and travels across the earth.

Charming B&B with beautifully decorated and clean rooms and an authentic Spanish feel. We stayed there with our family of five (one infant, a three and six year-old) and had a great time. As other reviewers have said, our hosts only added to the charm and were so personable and helpful. Our boys still talk of the nicknames Remy gave them. Ask Remy about places to explore in the village. We recommend parking at the underground garage in the newer section and taking a cab to the house. It's worth the extra money to not have the stress of driving through the narrow streets, and we're pretty frugal. Don't miss out on tapas at nearby Taberna Jovenes Flamencos and try the abajao, a traditional dish of Arcos. Will recommend Casa de Bovedas to everyone interested in Arcos.

We highly recommend staying at this very special house. We are very experienced global travelers in our late 60s and were extremely pleasantly surprised when we arrived at Casa Bovedas. Very authentic and artistic, but the best part are the owners who are very willing to help you and share information. Cecilia recommended a great restaurant in Benamahoma La Fuente and it was very good. Not easy to drive in the very narrow alleys, we did it but we also were pretty scared. Remy told us where to park and it worked out, but you may want to consider parking in the new city in the bottom....... Loved the experience, very comfortable beds, nice shower, great breakfast and great atmosphere.

Room Tip: We had a nice room with a terrace

Casa Bovedas is a hidden gem in the narrow streets of the Casco Antiguo of Arcos de la Frontera.

It's a quiet, charming place in harmony with the Andalusian architecture that really gives you a warm feeling of being home.

The hospitality of the host, the passion for his "Casa" and the Andalusian culture gives an extra dimension to this charming B&B.

Exquisitely and idiosyncratically restored house in the old town centre. Very much to our liking. We had a beautifully furnished, comfortable and spacious room on the road side with our own lounge and a little balcony with lovely views .Remy, our host, was welcoming and a mine of useful information. Fresh fruit at breakfast was a welcome inclusion. Don't try and take your car up into old Arcos. Leave it down in the newer part and take taxi or regular bus. It does tend to rain somewhat in Arcos so this is a good place to retreat to. This is a very interesting and unusual B & B in just the part of Arcos you are there to see.We would not hesitate to recommend it - and even return to!.

This is a truly cozy unique little place. It is in the center of a wonderful town. The view from the balcony is astounding. The owners have remodeled the entire place with lots of dedication and effort and it shows.
