Covering captivating small hotels, pensioni, auberges, inns and guest houses

Our selection of places to stay in Andalucia is one of the best on this website. This large, well-known area, covering more or less the whole of southern Spain, takes in the provinces of Huelva, Sevilla, Cordoba, Jaen, Granada, Almeria, Cadiz and Malaga.

It also includes the much-visited cities of Seville and Granada, and the Costa del Sol, a strip of coastline developed for mass tourism which includes the high-rise resort of Torremolinos. We have few recommendations on this unattractive coastline, but plenty inland. The influence of the Moorish invasion of Spain in the 8thC is felt strongly here.

As elsewhere, our selection of places to stay in Andalucia offers an exceptionally interesting range to choose from: guesthouses (hostals), restaurants-with-rooms and small hotels. Whichever, they all have the special qualities of hand-picked character and charm we seek out. Among our favourites are Castillo de Monda and Casa la Siesta.
