The
Experience

A medieval banquet wouldn’t look amiss in this secluded manor house set in olive groves and mountains. Indeed, with its glorious domed chapel, delicious food and cobbled, fountain’d courtyard it’s popular with wedding parties. Hidden behind stone walls, the hotel – once a convent, a marquis’s mansion, a civil war barracks – feels like a rural Andalucian hamlet: citrus-dotted patios like village squares, swathes of white or earthy walls topped with terracotta; a pretty swimming pool; a huge events barn. Charming new owners Silvia and Eilko are putting the final polish on a dining room, where sumptuous plates of duck confit are accompanied by fine rioja and a roaring fire. Bedrooms – so big they swamp four-posters – revel in history: romanesque columns, pigeonholes, a bath set in olive oil tanks, cattle mangers, chunky stone walls, a granary’s soaring vaulted ceilings… stunning. (Tubs and showers are splendidly old-fashioned.) Beautifully rural, deliciously authentic and within reach of both beach and Sierra Nevada skiing – and if all the rustic finery isn’t grand enough, Granada’s Alhambra is 20 minutes down the road.

Reviews

Having recently got married here and had the perfect weekend with family and friends, we can't recommend this hotel and the lovely owners enough. It's provides a beautiful away from it all experience and relaxed holiday. The service and food are really fantastic and we place a lot of value on good food and wine!. The rooms are all huge, stunning, individual and quiet. Lovely swimming pool to relax around. Perfect place for a long weekend/ week away from it all, or tied in with visiting Andalucia. We will definitely go back to stay!

What an incredible place! My husband and I had the most wonderful stay at the Cortijo Del Marques and plan on returning every year for some much needed R & R. The hosts were so helpful and extremely welcoming. They made sure that we had the best possible stay and nothing was too much trouble. Silvia is amazing! I am a fussy vegetarian and was a bit nervous about food in Spain but she worked with the chef to make sure I enjoyed the fabulous 4 course dinner every night. It was complete indulgence and I loved every minute. Stunning place - cannot wait to return!

Local points of interest from Silvia Roth-Bruggers

  • We serve a 3-course dinner menu for 29 euros per person (15 euros for a child or teenager). At lunchtime we serve Spanish tapas specialities, salads and sandwiches, and we also have an excellent wine and drinks list.
  • enjoy the great country side around the Cortijo on horseback! We work with a nearby riding school which has well trained horses available for you. The price is 25 euros per person for a tour of 2 hours, with a minimum of 2 riders.
  • We also have a couple of suggested walking and cycling trips, for which we have high quality KTM mountain bikes for rental, as well as a couple of children’s bikes. The charge is 10 euros per tour per bike and 25 euros for a family of four.
  • Even if you’re not interested in history or culture the Alhambra palaces in Granada should not be missed. It is a well preserved example of Moorish architecture with beautifully attended gardens that has maintained its allure and magic through the ages.
  • The Albayzín is the most interesting neighbourhood in Granada, consisting of narrow twisted alleys and hidden little squares; from most of which the view on the Alhambra will seem like a dream. Simply stroll through these beautiful and tranquil streets.
  • Don't miss a Flamenco performance in the gypsy caves of Sacramonte in Granada. We can recommend the cave of María La Canastera. They have daily live Flamenco Music and Dance Shows in a cave on the Sacromonte hill, near the Arab quarter.
