At first glance, the Finca Cortesin could be a 17th century Andalusian country house. In fact, it’s the creation of some of the finest architectural, interior and landscaping design talent in Europe. The hotel’s Castilian and Moorish influences are evident in large, bright, luxurious interiors, punctuated with antiques lovingly sourced from Southern Europe and North Africa. Meanwhile, white walls, shady courtyards and fragrant gardens create an irresistible sense of serenity.
Within easy reach of Malaga and Gibralter airports, the 215-hectare estate looks out over the Mediterranean and the Casares Mountains. Bahia de Casares Beach with a private club, infinity pool and restaurant is less than a five-minute drive away. However, a championship golf course, Michelin-starred fine dining, and leading French and oriental Spa treatments are all even closer.
It could be on one of the Cabell Robinson-designed fairways. Or maybe it will be in the hotel’s uniquely rejuvenating snow cave. What’s certain, is that at some point of your stay, you’ll realise you are somewhere unlike anywhere else you’ve ever been.
