About the Owner

We are an Irish Couple with 3 grown up children living in England. We have been coming to this beautiful area for over 35 years. The closeness to the Sea and the Magnificent Views from our Villa are some of the reason we enjoy the area so much.

This is a beautifully furnished villa. A home away from home with all the little luxuries you would have at home, 50 inch plasma tv, American fridge freezer with filtered water and ice machine, TV's in all the bedrooms, Dishwasher, DVD, Music Stereo, Juicer, Coffee machine, Pool Table etc, etc.

We are sure anyone staying here will feel as relaxed and at home as we do.

Spacious villa with beautiful pool area and magnificent views

  • 5 of 5

The villa was perfect for our family holiday of 3 generations which included children and grandparents. The pool area was the outstanding feature with a large pool which was cleaned regularly for us. The covered outdoor lounge area with lovely rattan furniture and large dining area meant that we spent very little time in the villa during the day, and the poolside bar with fridge was a big hit with the adults! We also liked that the pool was a short walk through the pretty garden from the villa, with wall and gate with latch, making it safe for the children to be in the garden without us worrying about them going in the pool.

The villa itself is very clean and has very generous sized rooms and the 3 bathrooms meant that there was never any waiting around, and there was always hot water. The lounge has magnificent views through the panoramic window to Gibraltar and North Africa and the large sofas and armchairs make it a very sociable room with space for everyone. The kitchen is very well equipped with modern appliances, including American fridge freezer, range cooker, microwave and washing machine. We cooked a number of meals at the villa and found everything we needed, including lovely plates, bowls, glasses etc for dining outside.

The caretakers live in the accommodation below the main villa and are always on hand to help you if you need it, without getting in your way at all. We also found the owners very helpful both before and during our stay.

The location was great - we went to the local beach and restaurants, and 5 minutes drive away is the up-market port of Sotogrande with lovely shops, restaurants and bars. As we hired a car, we also visited Gibraltar, Estepona, Puerto Banus and Marbella, before enjoying going back to the peace and quiet of the villa! A great choice for a relaxing family holiday.

Wonderful villa in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a lovely 9 days at this villa. Hilary and her daughter are very helpful in the organisation and provided all the required details. The villa is beautifully spacious and has a lovely pool in the well tended garden. There is a lovely shaded terrace for dining and a welcome pool table which entertained us late into the evening. There is a very modern kitchen and the ice water dispensing fridge is most welcome. Each bedroom has air conditioning although the villa is actually sufficiently airy anyway. The poolside area is very spacious with a lovely shaded bar and fridge as well as a dining table. It was lovely to sit by the pool most of the day and there is ample shade coupled with a cooling breeze. Views to Gibraltar and North Africa are really splendid as the villa is at the top of the hill above Torreguadiaro. Supermarkets and restaurants abound locally and are of great quality. Wifi and Sky TV make it great for kids in the evening. We would not hesitate to recommend Los Arcos and hope to go back again next year.

Relaxing, fully equipped holiday home

  • 5 of 5

This is the third property we have rented through OwnersDirect and it did not disappoint. The house has all you need and probably more. As commented on by others, the filtered cool water from the American style fridge is great and saves you tramping to the supermarket to get water all the time. There is wifi both inside and out by the pool, so our three teenagers could satisfy their need to connect: it was pretty reliable although the router did require a reboot a couple of times. The pool gets the sun all day long: pool temp was 28-29C everyday. There is a real feeling of privacy out by the pool as there is no one overlooking without feeling hemmed in as the Med and coast of Africa are plain to see. There are fridges by the pool/bar so you can store beer/meat or whatever for your BBQ without the need to keep going back into the house. There is ample lighting next to the pool so you can sit out at night if you wish. In other holidays in Spain and Portugal we have had problems with insect bites etc. We had none of that at Los Arcos. You can watch the resident birds swooping and there are many Monk Parakeets to be seen. We easily walked to the village and Sotogrande in the evening for meals and only used the car a few times, but the hill may be too steep for some especially in the heat of the day. Andrea, her husband and son were very discreet, you would hardly know they were there. The air conditioning was really great in the house, however the house does remain cool without it, even when temperatures were reaching 37-38C. We flew to Gibraltar which is ~20mins drive away hiring a car on the Spanish side. Pain free, easy drive. All in you will have a relaxing holiday at this property.

Wonderful spacious villa in a brilliant location

  • 5 of 5

Just wanted to let you and Hilary know what a wonderful time we had at Los Arcos. The villa was perfect for our family's needs. The villa is really well equipped, the pool was amazing and the location magnificent. It was great to be able to walk to the beach and have access to a variety of bars and restaurants.

Wonderful villa what more could you ask for

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 with 3 young children and this villa was absolutely superb and would highly recommend this property to families. The bedrooms are all a fantastic size, 2 with en suites and all bedrooms come with air conditioning too. The living room is lovely again with plenty of room and boasts fabulous views of Gibraltar. The kitchen is large with all the mod cons and huge American size fridge/freezer with ice machine which is hooked up to a filter so there really is no need to buy bottled water whilst you are there. Most of our time was spent by the pool/bar area. The pool area is absolutely gorgeous and the pool itself is a decent size and it is well looked after. The owners have obviously given great attention to detail here.There is plenty of room to dine outside and there is a shaded area which is great too if needed with very comfortable rattan furniture. There is a fridge and freezer outside in the dining area which is great as it saves you having to keep going back inside to the villa, we just topped up the freezer with loads of icelollies and the kids were in their element oh and a few beers for us!!. And again wonderful views. We stayed for 10 days, I only wish we would of booked to stay for longer as it is well worth the money. The owner of the property is a pleasure to deal with which makes the whole holiday booking process very straight forward and stress free. I would recommend hiring a vehicle if you can however there are loads of bars, restaurants and shops about a 10min stroll away. If you get chance get up early and what the sunrise over the Med on the balcony it is truly beautiful. We have honesty thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and we will treasure all the lovely memories of this fabulous holiday and would book to stay again. Schatynski family

The perfect holiday home

  • 5 of 5

The location was lovely and quiet with beautiful views and some yummy restaurants. Would definitely recommend Pedros Mexican restaurant, if you are into sombreros and fajitas! Just a 10 minute walk to the beach where we enjoyed Bahia Limon beach bar with Kopparberg and Tinto on draught. The villa was spotless when we arrived and we were wowed by how spacious it was with an area for everyone. The owner was very helpful providing an information folder and we were able to contact her with any questions that we had. The wifi reached all around the villa, once we worked out how to use it, and the connection was good! The pool and bar area was also very big and provided us with hours of fun. There was even an ipod dock by the pool! Everything needed was provided and it made for a very relaxing, worry-free holiday! Would 100% recommend :)
