Arcos de la Frontera Holidays

Gateway to the white towns of Andalucía

As you explore the steep and narrow streets of hilltop Arcos de la Frontera (one of Andalucía’s famous white villages), it’s not hard to see why it’s considered one of Spain’s most beautiful towns. With an ancient castle, churches, and manor houses within this walled town, there’s a palpable sense of history here, made all the more attractive by floral displays and citrus and olive trees.

You can use Arcos as a base to explore other white villages of Andalucia, a string of similarly lovely locales in this pocket of Spain, including Ubrique, Medina Sidonia and Vejer de la Frontera. It’s also close to the Sherry Triangle of Jerez de la Frontera, Sanlucar Barrameda, and El Puerto de Santa María, and it’s easy to come across this smooth Spanish wine on your travels through Arcos de la Frontera and beyond.

Your Arcos de la Frontera questions, answered

Blissfully warm, dry and sunny in the summer, with temperatures rising to the late 20s in August.
This town is best explored on foot. If you hire a car, park it outside the town to avoid navigating through the narrow roads.
Authentically Spanish, with an emphasis on seafood from the nearby coastline and plenty of hyper-local sherry, too.
