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.

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 and towns such as Córdoba, Almería, Ronda, Ubeda and Málaga each have a rich mix of castles, palaces, churches, squares and many of the best places to stay in Andalucía.
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.
What Not To Miss
- A trip to Andalucía wouldn't be complete without a visit to Granada's Alhambra Palace. This medieval complex is a stunning representation of Moorish architecture, complete with beautiful cloistered courtyards with fountains. An iconic spot.
- Head off hiking through the Doñana National Park, a vast nature reserve and wetland ecosystem brimming with different species of birds.
- Seville's Plaza de España is a delight, mixing Renaissance with neo-Moorish architecture and brimming with history. Rent a boat out and take a trip along the canal for a truly relaxing afternoon.
- Be sure to visit the El Caminito del Rey walkway (it's about an hour north of Malaga), pinned against the steep walls of a narrow gorge and offering wonderful views. It can be dangerous though, so is probably not suitable for young children.
- The Bioparc Fuengirola is a great family day out. This is a special spot, a zoological park where the 200 species of animals coexist and share the same habitat in an effort to keep things as natural as possible. A truly captivating experience!
Use our guide to the best places to stay in Andalucia, whether you want to explore the gorgeous white villages, or simply chill out by a pool with a good book, and start to plan your trip.
