Lovely holiday home for a relaxing vacation
This is a spacious home that is very well equipped. It is located in the beautiful countryside and has a great pool where you can relax and unwind.
Great and quiet house in a very good location
We (family of 5) visited the house for the second time. Once again, we very much appreciated the quietness and uniqueness of the Location. From this place, it is very convenient to reach both the seaside as well as the hiking tours in Grazalema. Jerez and Arcos are nearby. Certainly worth a visit - hopefully we will be able to visit a third time... Car is needed for this house.
Rest and Relaxation, deep in the Spanish countryside
We enjoyed our stay at Cortijo Buena Vista immensely. The weather was absolutely fabulous which made the air conditioning in every room very welcome. The villa is very well appointed with everything you could possibly need supplemented by a thoughtful welcome pack and access to many staple products and cleaning products you normally need to purchase.
The lounge, diner, kitchen is great, sofas are comfortable and there is satellite access to main UK channels if you can ever tear yourself away from the idyllic garden.
We enjoyed the pool as swallows swooped over our heads and birds of prey circled in the distance. There are various tables, chairs, pool loungers throughout the property in various locations which means you can chase the sun or stay in the shade whatever your preference. The tower room offers great views and a cooler, breazy location to read a book or sample some of the fino sherry left for us in the fridge.
The location is convenient. We flew in from Seville airport which is just over an hour away and is a fantastic city to visit. Don't miss the cathedral or the Alcazar (beat the queues by paying a little extra for a guided tour).Jerez is less than 30 minutes, where we enjoyed the school of equestrian art which on certain days includes dressage performances where the horses dance to music and colourful pageantry (tickets can be purchased online from the UK). Sandeman's bodega is next door. It takes less than an hour to get to Cadiz which is worth reaching via the ferry from El Puerto de Santa Maria. This is really cheap, solves any car parking problems and gives you a virtually free 30 minute cruise into the town. Cadiz is full of the history you would expect connected with a strategic Spanish port, but take care of your belongings as we had a bag stolen within seconds while we were having lunch.
Arcos de la frontera is the closest town to the villa and is worth exploring. We drove up to the Plaza Del Cabildo, via very narrow roads to the view point looking over the valley. Its worth spending time contemplating the view from the terrace of the parador over a glass of wine or cold beer.
Our days however, always ended meandering back to the peace and quiet of the villa for a G&T, to swim, to read and to BBQ (a very efficient charcoal BBQ is located in the little courtyard at the front of the property).
Thank you Martin for the lovely review of your stay at my house. So glad you enjoyed the facilities, and your comments about things to do in the area are really helpful for future guests.
Always look forward to receiving returning guests if you so chose to any time in the future.
Regards to you both
Rural tranquility, great pool, highly recommended
Highly recommended. With its wonderful, peaceful and private location, this spacious property provided us with everything we needed for a great holiday. We really enjoyed the large private swimming pool. The house has plenty of shaded seating areas; we particularly enjoyed the tower room and courtyard. Overall the house was cool despite it being particularly hot during our stay; the aircon and ceiling fans in the bedrooms helped keep us cool at night. A large selection of books and DVD added to the opportunities to relax and chill.
Great tapas in old Arcos and with beaches, mountains, Cadiz and Sevilla easily accessible.
Excellent accommodation in a lovely part of Spain
We had a lovely week at Cortijo Buena Vista. We found it a very pleasant house to stay in during the hot weather. The bedrooms are relatively cool and we only needed to have the ceiling fan on a low setting at night. But there are air conditioning units in each room if you need them. Getting a good night's sleep on holiday is fantastic! Bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen and sitting room are very attractive and well equipped. There are so many books to read and DVDs to watch. It was very windy for the first few days but that was fine because we took the chance to do some sight-seeing. We really enjoyed the pool - it is a good size and depth. The property is down a long rough track but we found it fine to drive along as long as you go slowly and it means that it is in a very quiet location. We had some lovely walks along the roads from there, through the farming areas.
We went to Arcos reservoir on a couple of occasions where there is a sandy beach with swimming which was fantastic. We liked going up to Arcos in the evenings and wandering around the narrow streets (make sure you park and walk up!) and going to some of the tapas restaurants and a great new Moroccan Spanish restaurant. We also had a great day driving to Zahara and stopping off to see the views from the mountains on the way and the griffon vultures. It was very beautiful and although the roads wind around the mountains it felt quite a safe drive.
The property is clean and well looked after and Jacinta was really helpful and was contactable by text if needed. All-in-all a great holiday!
De boerderij op zich was mooi en mooi gelegen. Helaas konden wij niet zwemmen in het zwembad omdat de skimmers niet werkten waardoor het water vies was en dus onaantrekkelijk om in te zwemmen. Verder was één van de drie slaapkamers niet te gebruiken vanwege een sterke kelderlucht en overmatige vochtigheid. Bij een andere slaapkamer functioneerden de rolluiken niet en bleken de lattenbodems van de bedden improvisorisch aan elkaar geplakt, waardoor er een behoorlijke kuil in het bed ontstond.
Op het raam van deze slaapkamer bevonden zich bijzonder veel slakken.
Het keukenkastje waar de pannen stonden produceerde eenzelfde sterke kelder- en schimmellucht, die ook in de pannen en de theepot was getrokken, waardoor koken ook niet aantrekkelijk was. Zoals gezegd, de boerderij is op zich mooi en heeft een mooi uitzicht, maar al met al was het verblijf vanwege bovengenoemde zaken dus teleurstellend.
Thank you for the review of your stay at our villa - Cortijo Buenavista and I am pleased that you found the house to be ‘beautiful, quiet and with beautiful views’. We welcome all feedback and any suggestions for improving the holiday experience for our guests. We have been renting the villa out for the last 14 years with feedback generally being highly positive, and many return visitors. We take it very seriously, therefore, when a guest reports not being fully satisfied with their overall stay. I would therefore like to address the issues raised in your review;
You rightly brought to our attention that the swimming pool skimmers were not working properly on your arrival, and arranged for this to be checked out. We also asked trusted neighbours, to check on the condition of the pool. Each confirmed that, although there had been a problem with the skimmer, the overall filtration system was still working effectively and that the pool was clear.
The pool is cleaned once a week, as well as the filter operating on a timer twice a day to keep the pool clean between the visits. Given this is an outside pool in a rural farming area; it is inevitable that some debris might drift into the pool; especially if it is windy. We therefore leave a net for guests to use.
You told us the ensuite bedroom shutter did not function properly. We asked someone to call during the next day but as you advised this was not suitable, it was subsequently fixed later in the week, at a time more convenient for you. You report there being a ‘dip’ in the middle of the bed in this room. These are, however, twin beds, not a double, so I am unclear as to what the issue is. Some snails on the outside of this bedroom window, these ‘caracoles’ are very common in rural Spain in the summer and are notorious for their ability to stick like super glue. I will arrange for these to be cleared as far as possible in future.
Humidity in the middle bedroom. Given that temperatures can be very high during the summer period, we have air conditioners in all the rooms as well as ceiling fans in the bedrooms. There is also a dehumidifier to assist with air circulation.
In recognition of any inconvenience, we paid some compensation. I hope that this, and my responses to the above, goes some way to addressing issues raised, and thank you for bringing them to my attention. Happily, guests staying subsequent to your visit have not raised any concerns relating to any of the above issues.
