La Esperanza is a magnificent hacienda in the Spanish Mission style set on 4.5 hectares of private flower gardens and forests of organic fruit trees and almond trees. 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. A private chef and sommelier, masseuse and acupuncturist can also be hired by villa guests.
La Esperanza is light and airy. It benefits from morning sun and provides shade in the afternoon. On cool evenings, the fireplace in the lobby lounge or on the terrace provides warmth. Guests will enjoy this private hacienda, full of walking trails amidst flowering bushes, fruit trees and pine trees.
The pine trees ensure that the estate is green and lush all year-round.
