At the crossroads of history and old legends rises the white and magnificent Arcos de la Frontera, declared a National Historic Landmark and a piece of artwork in itself. Just a few kilometres from this village lays the Finca Barranco, a charming holiday complex that combines the beauty of the mountains with the rolling farm lands and olive trees groves. One of the best assets of the Finca Barranco is the country estate Molino Nuestra Señora de la Luz, a traditional Andalucian farm which dates back to 1754 and served as an olive oil mill. In what was once the old mill and today is a restaurant, weary travellers will be able to enjoy the most delicious dishes of traditional Mediterranean cuisine, prepared with products grown on the premises. This building complex adds a number of rooms and adjacent houses to the farm, some attached to the main building. The others are scattered around the complex and were once used as lodging for the mill workers. Both the rooms and the independent houses have been restored and redecorated in a charming and traditional style. The gentle climate of the Sierra in Cádiz, with average temperatures near 20 C, is ideal for activities like hiking, outdoor photography, horseback riding, mountain biking, swimming, hunting, water sports, golf and many more. Guests can enjoy such activities and commune with nature throughout the year. The tranquillity and beauty of the landscape guarantee an unforgettable stay, far from the stress and distractions of the cities. The Saloon is equipped with billiards, and in winter and fall, when the temperatures are a little lower, the clients can sit closed to the fire place and enjoy a glass of wine watching the flames consuming the wood. This room is decorated with some very beautiful artefacts of the past and it is a pleasure to gaze at all the different things. A mini - bar and television are at our visitor s disposition in this saloon. The meeting room is equipped with television and video and can be leased by groups and enterprises. The capacity is 35 persons. Just upstairs from this room is the library. In our shop you will find a selection of products from this region.
This hotel is a special building with great old architecture and lots of beautiful furniture and antiques. The location is superb in its own estate grounds. Quiet.
Maybe the service is excellent at busy times but my wife and I were the only guests and felt like spare parts (but the resident housekeeper was very helpful and efficient). On arrival we asked about dinner..not possible because chef recovering from previous day's banquet...booked for next day..res hkeeper gave excellent info to eat near Arcos. Returning from dinner at night it was scary trying to find the entrance from main busy road .took 4 tries..as entrance sign not illuminated . Hotel dinner for 2 next evening was very poor in so many ways that I complained to the res hkeeper...she immediately took the dinner cost off the bill without hassle. A great place to stay so perhaps we were unlucky with our timing.
