All our Andalucían collections:

Andalucía occupies a particularly special place, on an invisible and ever fluctuating religious border between Christianity and Islam, and this cultural verge has its own look and feel. And of course then there's also the spectacularly beautiful landscape! The best places to stay in Andalucía are just as varied as the scenery, from citrus scented hilltop hideaways to city pads ringing with flamenco rhythms, from luxury hotels and guesthouses, to affordable self catering apartments and villas (for a selection of these we recommend our online partner,

Andalucía's coastline has a lot more to offer than just the glitz and sunshine of the Costa del Sol. At the western end of the coast, Costa de la Luz has huge sweeps of Atlantic sands and the immense wetlands of the Doñana National Park. And to the east, the Mediterranean Costa Tropical and Costa Almería have unspoilt fishing villages tucked between lovely bays and mountains.

The eight provinces of Málaga, Granada, Almería, Córdoba, Jaén, Huelva, Sevilla and Cádiz are all well worth visiting if you can drag yourself inland. Andalucía’s cities are grand, noble and usually ancient, each with a glorious architectural legacy. Seville and Granada are the queens, but less-known cities such as Córdoba, Almería and Málaga each have a rich mix of castles, palaces, churches, squares and many of the best places to stay in Andalucia.

Andalucía's interior is varied, from the fabulous wooded hills and craggy peaks of the North - heaven for hikers or riders - to the Sierra Nevada, the tallest mountain range in Western Europe outside the Alps and the Tabernas where spaghetti westerns were filmed.

The fascinating architecture of the region has been influenced by the best of both Muslim and Christian design, and you'll find vast mosques which are used as churches, and vast Arabian looking palaces with beautiful Renaissance interiors. Andalucía's cities are full of surprises.

The region's famous white, hilltop towns have plenty to offer as well when it comes to history, art and architecture. Many times the conquered and many times the conqueror, these outposts borrow from both traditions. And from them the region has spawned its own cuisine and music, and some of the world's most unique festivals!

There is a fiesta somewhere every month of the year in Andalucía, some celebrated across the entire region, others more local. Many are religious festivals but all have a celebratory element. The best places to stay in Andalucía can become booked up well in advance of the fiestas so forward planning is essential.

The Best Places to Stay in Andalucía

For a City Break

  • The Hospaderia de El Churrasco in the old Jewish quarter of Córdoba is traditional, antique-filled and ornate with Roman mosaic tiling and Moorish influences.
  • The Palacio de Villapanés AlmaSevilla is a good mixture of Moorish and modern influences in the heart of Seville.
  • Also in Seville, Las Casas de la Juderia in the old Jewish quarter is a cluster of 27 interconnected town houses linked by mustard-coloured and green courtyards.
  • La Casa Morisca in Bajo Albayzín in Granada is a prize-winning restoration of a 15th Century house with a galleried inner courtyard, wooden bannisters and a marble pool. One bedroom has its original wooden painted ceiling. There are lovely details like this to be discovered all over this enchanting region of Spain.
  • The super-stylish EME catedral hotel has luxurious rooms, a spa, a Michelin-starred restaurant and wonderful views of Seville Cathedral from the rooftop.
  • The Hotel Santa Isabel La Real in Granada has tower rooms with views of the Alhambra. A small and family run guesthouse, this is our recommendation if you value a personal touch. They make you feel as if there's nothing that's too much trouble.

For a Beach Break

  • The Amanhavis Hotel in Malaga on the Costa del Sol, is a distinctive small hotel, set apart from the tourist note spots in an charming Moorish mountain village a short drive from the sea. The food and pool are excellent.
  • The Hotel Claude in Marbella is worth staying in for its sunlit central courtyard alone. The food is good and the rooms although slightly masculine in design still manage to be romantic.
  • The Hotel Punta Sur in Tarifa is a beachside hotel with views all the way to Africa. This is a lively spot with big rooms, a tennis court, a large pool and an array of sporting activities. It's also great for families.
  • Casa la Concha is a set of chic, little B&B cottages set on a hilltop on the Costa del Sol. Quiet, green and relaxed, the views of the Mediterranean are lovely, and because you have your own cottage it is a good option for those with kids.
  • The Hotel Hurricane on the Costa de la Luz is another hotel with views stretching all the way to Africa. These ones are tinged with a tropical foreground and a windsurfing beach. Plenty of activities again, and quite fashionable.

For a complete escape!

  • For a complete getaway in a remote spot La Posada Del Torcal is romantic and intimate with views across the valley that will make you smile every morning.
  • The Hacienda de San Rafael on a former olive estate mixes rustic charm with modern sophistication. Bedrooms are all split-level and there are three romantic garden casitas (small cottages).
  • La Fuente de la Higuera has an olive-related history as well, being a former olive mill. Comfortable unfussy rooms and a homely garden give this hotel a country house party feel.
  • The Casa Vina de Alcantara is a converted 19th Century hunting lodge on the edge of a family vineyard and has a shady garden with a swimming pool and lake.
  • Alqueria de Los Lentos is a gorgeous old mill renovation surrounded by olive groves and magnificent gardens on the edge of the Sierra Nevada. Rooms and suites are 'rustic chic': think fireplaces, stone floors, exposed beans and brightly painted walls.
  • Cortijo La Fe is a relaxing retreat in the hills above Granada. Surrounded by olive groves and almond trees, these rustic rooms have silk rugs, beautiful tapestries and panoramic views. The hotel also has beautiful gardens, and kitchen gardens, and authentic Arabic baths.

The best of rural Andalucía

  • The town of Ubeda in the Jaén province is home to the Palacio de la Rambla, a homely converted 16th century urban palace. The cloistered ivy-clad courtyard and the rooftop views are two very good reasons to stay there.
  • Casa Rural las Chimeneas is a beautifully rustic guesthouse on a hilltop, with both rooms and self-catering cottages. The views from the private terraces span from the mountains to the Med., and there's plenty to do here all year round, especially for those who love the great outdoors.
  • Enfrente Arte in Ronda is a laid back hotel surrounded by historic buildings, with a laid-back vibe and contemporary decorations. A home rather than a hotel with its help-yourself philosophy. One of the best places to stay in Andalucia for families and local exploring.

For a holiday villa or apartment

  • If you're travelling with a group of friends or family, then the best option may be to rent a villa or apartment. For a great selection from luxury villas to budget studio apartments, check out our online partner,
