Arcos de la Frontera, Spain

In early April we took a week of vacation to explore south-western Spain and enjoy some warm weather.  We rented a small home in the hill-town of Arcos de la Frontera (about 1 hour south of Seville) and invited Nick and Pam (Bruno's parents) to join us.  We spent a few days exploring the town of Arcos and its ancient buildings and quaint shops.  We also made day trips to Cadiz (a seaside town), Seville, and the picturesque mountain town of Grazalema. By the end of the week we had barely scratched the surface of all the possible adventures available, but we felt well rested and relaxed.  We even managed to read a few books and sample the local tapas and wines!
