Refugio del Juanar

Sierra Blanca s/n, Ojén, Andalusia, 29610, Spain

Once an aristocratic hunting lodge (King Alfonso XIII came here), this secluded hotel and restaurant was sold to its staff in 1984 for the symbolic sum of 1 peseta and is a world apart from the glamour of Marbella, just 30 minutes' drive away. It's an ideal base for hikers and refreshingly cool in the summer. Inside, the hunting theme prevails, both in the common areas—where a log fire roars in winter—and in the restaurant, where hearty game dishes dominate the menu (perfect fare after a hike in the mountains). The rooms are simply decorated, and six (including the three suites) have a fireplace.
