On its own 1,000-acre estate amid olive and oak trees, 42 km (24 miles) west of Priego de Córdoba, this complex resembles a Moorish village of white-walled buildings with tile roofs and patios, and there are fountains and an artificial lake on the property. Guest buildings center on a 16th-century-style chapel that houses a 1,595-pipe organ, and each room has a balcony, a terrace, or a garden. One of the three restaurants, El Mirador (open in summer only), concentrates
on dishes prepared from locally grown ingredients while El Cortijo offers Mediterranean dishes and La Finca a four-course menú de degustación. A spa rounds out the list of nice extras. The hotel is just south of La Subbética region, technically in Granada Province.
