This romantic and unique Andalucian estate consists of several buildings. A 12th-century fortress is adjacent to the main Renaissance building and may be explored.
A former barn has been converted into an inviting living room that is beautifully decorated with original 17th-century Flemish paintings. It’s a perfect place to curl up with a book in front of the fireplace in the winter months.
The gardens of the estate, copied after those of the Alhambra in Granada, are outstanding. Moorish-style irrigation canals and fountains are cool and soothing. Trees and plants abound.
There are only a dozen guest rooms here, giving the hotel a small, intimate feel. If you want a room with medieval atmosphere, ask for the “tower room.”
A small restaurant provides well prepared meals.
The attentive and friendly staff are more than helpful in providing information on how to best enjoy your stay.
The estate is a Spanish National Monument.
