Hotel Nabia

Candeleda, Ávila

High in Ávila's unspoilt nature is this stylish, eco-brilliant family hotel: mountains, massages, pool, organic dinners...a special escape


12 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


Cinematic scenes of wild nature: zoom in to emerald valleys, rocky creeks, wide plains, and sunsets to the distant Montes de Toledo. The soundtrack is birdsong or waterfall; sunsets are spectacular from autumn through to spring. This new-build hotel stands secluded on the tree line of mighty Almanzor (the highest peak in the Gredos mountains), reached by a steep, sandy drive. Taste the view in the glass-walled dining room, where a reassuringly small dinner menu trumpets organic home-grown produce. In summer, tables spill onto the terrace. Pour a drink from the honesty bar, take a dip in a saltwater pool by a shady oak copse. Find eco-comfort at every turn: good sound insulation, warm marble bathrooms, a reed waste treatment pool, a biomass furnace. Most rooms have a private terrace and there’s a light-filled, fire-warmed sitting room. Exotic souvenirs from Sofía and Iñigo’s travels fire up cool whites and greys. The couple speak good English, are eager to please, can organise bikes, lunch packs or guides for the 12-hour hike up the mountain. And massages for those who wish to do nothing at all.

Whilst travelling through Spain earlier this year we were lucky enough to have 3 nights at Hotel Nabia, we cannot recommend them highly enough. Having arrived at night we were not prepared for the spectacular, settings and views which we woke up to the next day, outstanding!! Sophia and Iggy made us so welcome, with their hard work and attention to detail they have created a haven for quiet retreat. Iggy's food was delicious, the best we tasted on our whole month long trip. Also his daily recommendations and hand written directions for walks, sights and trips were delightful. Absolutely superb

Local points of interest from Sofía Bernar & Iñigo O´Shea

  • Birdwatching in Spain to experience outstanding scenery and biodiversity guided by expert local ornithologyst. Please contact us for details!
  • Love hikking in unspolied terrain? come to the Gredos Mountains in Spain and enjoy spectacular tracks, landscape with the confort of Hotel Nabia
  • Need to rest in silence? Nabia is isolated enough to enjoy just the mild sounds of nature. Sit by our infinity pool in summer or by the fireplace in one of our suites in winter and you will enjoy again the peace of silence.
