About This Listing
It is in the countryside of Cadiz, a most interesting area of Andalusia. It consists of a living room-kitchen with access to garden. A large bedroom with double bed, bathroom and loft with two beds (website hidden) pool is a good size
Cádiz: the best of Spain! Rich in cultural influences such as its deep roots in Flamenco history & the fascinating architecture that includes the panoply of varied cultures which one would expect from the province whose capital is the oldest—continually habitated—of all Europe.
I am Maribel, psychologist originally from Madrid (in another life) & now lover of the rhythms & bucolic beauty that I have found in this jolly area of Andalucia—I hope to be able to offer you a warm welcome soon!
I have two cottages for rent on the same 2000m2 of garden & fruit trees where I live, 5 kilometres from town. Each one has a layout of 50m2 plus the second bedroom on a loft. The kitchens are fully equipped with cooking utensils & dishes as well as electric appliances (microwave, tea kettle, oven, fridge, iron etc). the loft bedroom offers two single beds in a room open to the kitchen/dining/sitting area. The bathroom is fully equipped including washing machine & bath with hydro massage. The main bedroom has a double bed, chest of drawers & a large closet.
We provide towels & other toiletries as well as firewood proportionate to your length of stay. A large swimming pool (12 x 6 metres) is shared with me & any guests that might be staying in the other cottage.
The cottages are private & charming with their thatched roofs but they also have excellent insulation that makes them easy to heat with no more than the wood stove in winter & are comfortable with no more than fans at the height of summer.
The minimum reservation for two people is for two days with prices starting at 110€ for a week-end & 320€ for a week with decreasing rates for longer stays.
The garden and pool are shared and open access only for guests and hosts. Availability grill. Parking space for each of the houses.

Les 4 jours passés dans cette jolie maisonnette bordée d'une piscine furent très plaisants et nous ont permis de découvrir arcos, Cadix, jerez et ronda a proximité.
Il est aussi original de partager le jardin avec les poules, le coq et les chiens de la charmante propriétaire.
Maribel's cottage was just perfect for our 5 days in Andalucia. It was simple, secluded and very peaceful. Maribel was very welcoming but left us alone to come and go as we pleased. The shower was powerful with plenty of hot water (though a bit hard with the limestone landscape) and wifi was good too. Arcos was closer than I thought and easy to get in and out of, although you cannot drive up into the old town. Also it seemed to be more bars than restaurants though the food at the tapas bars was generally very good. All in all a very positive experience and good value for money.
Maribel responded promptly to our questions before we arrived and greeted us warmly when we did arrive.
We enjoyed our Spanish getaway to the countryside of Arcos de la Frontera. The cottage made us feel like we were having an authentic Spanish countryside experience. This includes the fantastic views and 3am rooster wake up each morning :) If you plan on staying here you absolutely need a car. It is an 18 minute drive from old town Arcos. Maribel was a lovely host!

About the Host, Maribel
Me crié en Madrid pero en el campo me siento más libre, no disfruto con los compromisos y convenciones sociales. Tener un trabajo satisfactorio, relaciones honestas con las personas y el entorno y rodearme de un ambiente sin estrés son mis necesidades vitales.
Me gusta relajarme de mi trabajo como psicoterapeuta con el de la huerta, el jardin, las tareas domésticas o actividades manuales artesanales, aunque también dedico tiempo al estudio.
Me interesan las diferencias y me considero tolerante. Recibo a menudo amigos y familia en mi casa pero también aprecio la soledad. Disfruto con los animales, tengo una perrita, dos patas y una pareja de gansos, que me resultan muy divertidos.
Cuando puedo me gusta hacer viajes largos para encontrar nueva belleza y gente distinta, más urbana. Los libros y las buenas películas satisfacen mi necesidad de nuevos estímulos entretanto.
