The Space

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.

Guest Access

The garden and pool are shared and open access only for guests and hosts. Availability grill. Parking space for each of the houses.

  • Staying in one of the cottages is real vacation, the two cottages are really spacious, with a lot of privacy. We rented the one next to the swimming pool. Maribel and het sister Carmen are very nice and always there when you need them and ready for any help you might need. Arcos de la Frontera is a lovely little white village within 5minutes by car. It has a lot of authentic spanish eateries and bars in the old town. I recommend to park your car in one of the parking lots outside the center. because inside the old town there's almost no space available and you will
    need all your driving skills to get through the narrow one way cobble streets. The other attraction are the mountains (20min) nearby. And after a hike you can keep siesta at the swimming pool. We stayed with two, but there's an attic for another couple to sleep. Advise: ask Maribel for GPS coordinates if you have GPS-navigation. because it's really hard to find. Arriving in the dark I do not recommend.

  • We stayed with our one and half year old in Maribel's casita for almost three months and it became like home, we miss it! It is very cozy and the countryside location is perfect if your looking for a slower pace. It is also a great base to explore from as it is a short distance to the ocean, hiking (Grazalema Sierra) and to many historical and beautiful towns. We had a wonderful experience,
    Muchas gracias Maribel!

  • Nuestra estancia en esta acogedora casa ha sido estupenda gracias a la amabilidad de Maribel.
    El emplazamiento es ideal para visitar los pueblos blancos, además de ser tranquilo y relajante, con su jardín y la piscina que, en los días de sol, se trasforman en un salón al aire libre.
    En la casa no falta de nada y la estufa hace su trabajo calentando muy bien los distintos ambientes.
    Ah ¡no olvidéis los perros! porque ellos también han agradecido la estancia...

  • We stayed for a week in Maribels casita and found it a nice place to stay. Our little girl (13 months old) had plenty of crawling space. Maribel made sure she could sleep in a good baby bed and eat in a high chair, which was great! Less stuff to bring on a plane :)
    The evening we arrived there was a hot water problem. Maribel was very helpful and solved it asap.
    The location near Arcos de la Frontera is very good for exploring the area. In picturesque Arcos you find all the restaurants and supermarkets you need.
    Maribel is a very nice woman - pity we didn't see her the morning we were leaving, we couldn't say goodbye and thank her for the lovely stay. So Maribel, thank you!

  • We had a wonderful stay at Arcos de la Frontera. The cottage was cosy, clean and well equiped, everything you need for a nice and comfortable stay. We liked our holiday weeks in Spain. Especially Grazalema, Ronda, Sevilla, Granada. Malaga and Cordoba . It was a relaxing time in a very warm period in Spain. So the swimming pool was an outcome.

  • These cottages are beautiful and comfortable. They are perfectly located for a guest wanting to explore all the best of Andalucia. Maribel is extremely warm and accommodating. What an amazing holiday!

  • It was wonderful to stay with Maribel in one of her cottages! The place is really very quiet and the cottages are spacious and well equipped. The beds are comfortable and inside the cottage the air was cool, despite the midday heat outside. The pool is lovely and very welcome after a day of hiking in the Grazalema park or discovering the beautiful city of Arcos de la Frontera, which are both close by.
    The direct surroundings are also pretty good for a stroll in the countryside and spotting birds.

    Maribel is a wonderful host and has promptly answered all of our questions in advance and during our stay. She is a warm person and made us feel very welcome. She has several pets walking around the house, but they are small and very friendly; they haven't bothered us in any way.

    We would definitely recommend her cottages to anyone who likes to spend time outdoors, with all the comforts of the cottage and the city at hand. We hope to come back and spend some more time in the future!

    Eva y Marcus, gracias por vuestra extensa y completa valoración.
    Me ha encantado conoceros y realmente me hubiera gustado tener la oportunidad de conoceros mejor. Vuestra "vibración" es agradable y positiva. Os deseo todo lo mejor en el parto y con el bebe y que disfruteis de esa época tan especial.
    Os mando besos virtuales. 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.
