La Almunia del Valle - Hotel in Granada
Camino de la Umbría s/n, 18193 Monachil,
Secluded terraces, soothing fountains, channels ferrying water everywhere. An almunia is a Moorish summer residence and there's a distinctly Moorish feel to this hillside garden. The house stands in its own orchards, its white lines softened by groves of chestnut, olive and fig, its interiors a masterly mix of period and modern: traditional slate floors and contemporary art, leather chairs and woven hangings, arresting colours and lots of books. Beautifully finished bedrooms in the main house (the downstairs ones have superb terraces) smell deliciously of cherrywood and are lavishly equipped; bright kilims and ceiling fans add to the elegance. Two contemporarily gorgeous new rooms – whose picture windows embrace the view – cut into the hillside behind. From the vast rose-painted sitting room step out to admire the manicured lawns, the dramatic sweep of mountains and the valley below, enjoy the jazz during an immaculate dinner. A charming couple, José Manuel and Patricia run their house with intelligence and passion. Perfect for sybarites, 20 minutes from Granada yet tranquil and remote.
