And you wouldn’t be disappointed. From castles to palaces, Roman to Moorish to modern Mudejar, the region offers some of Spain’s most alluring and spectacular places to stay, on beaches and mountain tops, in the heart of cities and in secluded countryside.
Finca Cortesin, the Alfonso XIII, Marbella Club, La Bobadilla, the Parador de Granada – all legendary five-star hotels with something no other place can offer, be it a golf course which hosts international championships, original ceramic tiles and furnishings fit for a king, a palace built for a Nasrid ruler, an astonishingly authentic Andalucian village, or the chicest beach club on the Costa del Sol.
Everyone who is anyone comes to stay here in Andalucia’s landmark hotels, from Pierce Brosnan, Brad Pitt and Shakira, to Eva Longoria and the US’s First Lady, Michelle Obama.
