On a plateau in Spain’s stunning Sierra de Aracena, hugged by cork and chestnut trees and reached by a steep track, this elegant new hotel comes with views that stretch to distant points of the compass. U-shaped with open cloisters around a chequered Andalucian patio, Charles and Reyes’s early retirement project blends solar panels, spring water and top quality (often organic) food with a real care for guests’ comfort. Generous bedrooms are smartly furnished with huge beds and pretty sitting areas; there are double basins in bathrooms and private terraces. Laze by the poolside, pick mushrooms and chestnuts on the 25-acre farm or enjoy the fire in the spacious lounge, bright with pictures by local artists. You can pop into whitewashed Alájar for dinner or ask for a simple meal or sandwich – the best jabugo ham is reared nearby and homemade jams and bread appear at breakfast. Hike in the Parque Natural de Picos de Aroche, uncover layers of history in Aracena or join in with local festivals. It’s as secluded as can be in this rural retreat, but there’s no lack of life round here.

A very lovely small hotel in an exquisite location atop a mountain side with spectacular views. The family who run it are extremely warm and hospitable - nothing is too much trouble. The food, both breakfasts and evening meals, if you choose to eat in are made with the highest quality ingredients, a lot home grown or home made and are absolutely delicious. The chef obviously has an extremely good palette and is very talented. There are a lot of beautiful walks all around. We stayed nine nights and where extremely impressed. I have already recommended it to many friends. We will be regulars.


I spent a long weekend in January and the place is beautiful! The room was spacious and very comfortable. The food and the service in general was impecable, making us feel very much at home. The area around the Finca is perfect for long walks, with lots of small villages to discover. Don´t miss the saturday market in Aracena
