Hacienda El Santiscal on the outskirts of Arcos de la Frontera is a gorgeous, rustic hotel and a wonderful piece of history. The XV century hacienda sits in peaceful countryside with fields and a lake making giving it lovely views and sunsets.
A typical, and the earliest, hacienda with a lovely open inner courtyard surrounded by what are now the restaurant, lounge, bar, kitchen and reception.
The upper floor consists of 12 unique bedrooms of varying sizes with olde-worlde charm, if a little tired in places. Antiques and history make a charming rustic retreat where peace reigns and service is relaxed. You will unwind here. An escape and delight to return to after a busy day’s sightseeing.
Or it’s an ideal spot just to take a good book, relax by the pool take in the fresh air and vistas and do nothing. We did both followed by stunning sunsets a great way to end the day and then retire to the comfiest bed I’ve ever slept in.
A great escape in a beautiful corner of Andalucia, perfect for exploring and for unwinding.
