Hacienda el Santiscal Reviews


The very name of this exquisitely restored and noble 15th-century manor house evokes a sense of romance and adventure as profound as the Spanish Golden Age itself.

The term "Santiscal" comes from a Roman country villa located in the grounds of the Hacienda that was discovered in the late nineteenth century. The area known comprising a peristyle, a swimming pool, water pipes and various mosaics among which figured the only issue with the representaion of Venus and Adonis. The building and pavement indicate extensive use of the villa throughout the Roman empire until the sixth century which accounts for the Visigothic Bulgarico tombstone, found in 1890.

Story has it there was once a knight called Juan de Armario. In 1485, when Ronda was laid to siege by the Christians, he was the first to enter the mine where the moors kept all their supplies and died in the venture. As a reward for his bravery, the King granted the knight’s sons five estates at the foot of the Sierra del Santiscal mountain range, where they built what would become the family residence, today called “Hacienda El Santiscal”. This beautiful fortified building has magnificent views to the Lake and its Nature Park thanks to its strategic location.
You can now enjoy it for yourself.

Our countryside property is located in Arcos de la Frontera, a historic city, capital of the Route of the "Pueblos Blancos" of Cádiz (White Villages), near the Nature Park of Grazalema, declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO.

Arcos de la Frontera, declared a Historical Monument in 1962, is one of the prettiest towns in Spain, perched on a high rock from which hung a multitude of white houses together with a medieval castle that is testimony to the magnificent past of this romantic and legendary town which belonged to the Arab court of Medina Sidonia.

Today, Hacienda El Santiscal, is a unique accomodation that has maintained the flavor of yesteryear in its walls with the conforts of today, without losing the charm of the old manor houses, as has successfully adapted to the new times in order to become a green hotel, as they credited the two quality labels obtained in 2011, the spanish "Parque Natural de Andalucía" y the european one "ECEAT".

The hotel has four Standard rooms, four Superior with Balcony, 3 Superior with Views, one Superior with Private Terrace and a Suite with a lounge and a fireplace. All are air conditioned with private remote control and fully-equipped with free safe, ceeling fun, direct telephone, wifi, and a full bathroom with hair dryer, towel heater, ecological dispensers, water saver and welcoming products among other amenities.

Since the hotel occupies a protected historical building (15th century), all the rooms are different, having opted for the mix of strong colors on the walls, referring to the 70's Pop Art, with furniture and antiques, most of the original house and quite valuable as a dresser of the sixteenth, a trunk of Vuitton for the carriages or an Elizabethan style sofa thats retains its original upholstery, among other pieces .

Some rooms have wooden beam ceilings, Arab brick or earthenware tile floors, paneled furniture, etc. although all are decorated in a cosy style that fits in with the style of the house, imbuing it with simplicity, elegance and character but always respecting the architectural ensemble that was declared "SINGULAR".
