La Esperanza is a magnificent Spanish Mission style hacienda set amongst 4.5 hectares of private flower gardens, organic fruit trees and evergreen forests. Only 35 minutes from Granada and 90 minutes from Malaga, it is also a boutique hotel and a fully serviced holiday rental villa with a housekeeping team on call.
Private chefs, a sommelier, masseuse and teachers of everything from the Spanish language to cookery classes, painting, yoga and flamenco can also be hired by villa guests.
La Esperanza is the perfect backdrop for the owner’s collection of spectacular artworks and antiques from southern Spain. Its calm surroundings offer an opportunity to escape the modern world in style and luxury. On cool evenings the fireplaces in the lobby lounge and on the terrace provide a soothing ambience.
The hacienda lies within a microclimate zone so it is relatively warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
Its outdoor swimming pool and hot tub offer panoramic views of the picturesque Lecrin Valley and its white stone villages, while the back gardens open up to the Sierra Nevada mountain range, home to Europe’s southernmost ski slopes.
Pine trees ensure that the estate is green and lush all year-round.
Those who wish to read, write, draw, meditate or practice yoga will find perfect spots to do so everywhere.
The hotel has seven rooms, all unique with vaulted ceilings in the traditional style of Andalucia.
