If you’d love to combine the enchantment of Granada with hikes in the Sierra Nevada, this rustic-chic hotel, (‘Almunia’ is Arabic for country estate) immersed in gorgeous mountain scenery, has it all.

Located a 10-minute drive from Granada and 20 minutes from the ski resort, it combines comfy designer furnishings, contemporary art, and stone and slate throughout. There’s a beautiful outdoor pool, and after a day’s exploring, you can sink into a sofa in the big common room by the fireplace, and peruse the hotel’s library of travel books over a cocktail.

An exceptional buffet breakfast starts the day, and guests can book delicious dinners made with local produce, served on the panoramic terrace.

Hosts Patricia and Manuel are delightful and know all the local trails; the one through Los Cahorros Gorge, one of the great beauty spots of the sierra, is only 2km away.
