The main entrance to this Frigiliana village house, which is accessed via a small open-air porch, reflects all the character and style of the Frigiliana area. From the street you see its beautiful facade with nine arched windows through which all the light and the sun enter the house. Inside there is plenty of space (approx. 85m²). The kitchen is decorated with tiles, expertly handcrafted in Seville and is fully equipped with a vitro-ceramics hob, electric oven, fridge/freezer, extractor hood, washing machine, iron and ironing board, coffee machine, kettle, toaster, juicer and mixer.

The dining area has a large table and four rustic wooden chairs. In the lounge area of this Frigiliana village house there is a wonderful wood-burning stove and, on the opposite side, a large comfortable sofa, two comfy armchairs and a coffee table. There is also a TV (with channels in English and Spanish), a DVD and CD/radio (with a good selection of films and music) and bookshelves with books in both languages. Arcos de la Almona also has air conditioning (cold & hot), a safe, smoke detectors and broadband internet connection (ADSL, free for customers with their own laptops, cell-phones and tablets). The beautiful bathroom is decorated with ceramic tiles (with metallic insets) which highlight its original wash basin which is handcrafted in ceramics and hand decorated. These and other details are emphasized by the sun which streams in through the skylight. The built-in shower is protected by a screen with doors. The water for both the bathroom and the kitchen is heated by solar panels. The bedroom is at the end of the house. There is a double bed with bedside tables, a large wardrobe and bookshelves (with a selection of books in English & Spanish). From the window there are views of the large terrace (approx. 100m²) which is complete with a private plunge pool (3m x 2m x 1m). Like the rest of the house, the terrace is quiet and peaceful. As well as the pool, there is a shaded pergola, a bench, two tables, several outdoor chairs, two sun-loungers with mattresses, a large parasol and a barbeque. All this is finished off with a wide variety of native, indigenous plants (jasmine, night scented jessamine, geraniums, aloha verde, camellia, bougainvillea, pansy, begonia, roses, ferns, adelfas, orchids etc.).The terrace views of Frigiliana's countryside and sierra are spectacular and the sumptuosity of the sky by night will turn your Frigiliana holiday into an unforgettable experience. We thank all our guests comments on TripAdvisor and incorporate both in our guestbook. Thank you all for your continued support. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: VTAR/MA/0872More

About the neighbourhood
The historic quarter of the town of Frigiliana, and with in it the Mudéjar Quarter, represents a monumental grouping that some authors have named the most popular architectural structure of Arab origin in existence in the province of Málaga. To this among others, is owed the prize received in 1982 of the I Premio Nacional de Embellecimiento de los Pueblos de España ( 1st National Prize for the Embellishment and improvement of the Spanish Towns). At present, the Historic Quarter has begun its filing for its declaration of Artistic Historical Grouping. Sports:- In this village we have a gymnasium and semi Olympic size swimming pool. There is also a covered sports complex where there are always different sporting activities taking place. All this is available to the public at very reasonable...

It is our wish to be your hosts, and our houses are and will always be your houses; you will always be welcomed here. Further than business, we focus more on our relationships with you, since the
