We offer you the most memorable cultural experiences
PRIVATE FLAMENCO EVENING IN OUR COURTYARD
And at night comes the best: a more intimate and real flamenco evening
than that of a zambra or a tablao. Don’t even think about going to sleep.
El Pais, February 2022
Experience the purest flamenco right in our hacienda. Amidst the backdrop of our spectacular courtyard, inspired by the Alhambra, we arrange dramatic performances by some of the best flamenco dancers and musicians in Spain.
Throughout the year, we offer special themed performances including shows with horses. Meanwhile in the winter, we recommend an intimate flamenco evening in front of the fireplace in our salon or master villa while you enjoy traditional tapas prepared by our private chef.
These are perhaps some of the most exclusive cultural experiences possible in Granada.
PERSONALIZED ASTRONOMY SESSION
TO SEE THE PLANETS AND THOUSANDS OF STARS
A personal recommendation? Don’t miss the astronomy evening under the stars.
National Geographic Traveler, September 2021
The astronomical experience is one of our most popular experiences because the skies are simply beautiful from our property. We have no light around us, so it is possible to have an amazing clear view. National Geographic magazine highly recommends this experience at our villa. Astronomers are also very good storytellers, so even those who are not interested in the stars fall in love with the stories.
For our clients, they bring to the villa one of the largest portable telescopes in the world. They also have a six kilometer long laser pointer. Along with the giant portable telescope, our guests can see Venus and Saturn and so many other planets with their own eyes.
MEET THE LOCALS
Oftentimes a wonderful trip revolves around the people you meet.
At La Esperanza Granada, we offer you opportunities to experience real Andalucia hospitality. Our guests can visit the homes of couples and families who trace their roots in Granada back many generations and enjoy a meal or an afternoon with them — whether it is a gastronomic lunch with a stylish couple in their well-appointed apartment in the city, paella with a family in their farm with a view in the next town, or a barbecue with a a multi-generational clan.
Learn about the real Spain via this most memorable way.
PRIVATE PAELLA COOKING CLASS
Our in-house chef will teach you how to prepare Spain’s favorite dish in our spacious hacienda-style master kitchen. You will learn everything from the authentic ingredients required for a tasty paella to the cooking techniques for creating the burnt rice effect that sets a great version apart from all the others.
Afterwards you will sit down at the kitchen table and enjoy your own cooking, along with an appetizer and a dessert. A real gastronomic experience.
MAGICAL EVENINGS WITH THE SPANISH GUITAR
Fill your evenings with music as our romantic hacienda is the perfect backdrop for the soothing sounds of the Spanish guitar. A classical Spanish guitarist will perform the beautiful songs of Andalucia, as well as of famous Spanish composers, just for you in our Alhambra-inspired courtyard, your private terrace, by the fireplace, or in the gardens.
PRIVATE TENNIS COACHING & PLAYING PARTNER
Our English-speaking tennis professional is an excellent teacher for players of all ages and levels. He also makes a great playing partner for guests who do not wish to book lessons. Playing on the La Esperanza Granada tennis court, with its amazing views of the Sierra Nevada mountains, is an exhilarating experience in itself.
