La Bobadilla, a Royal Hideaway Hotel 

A slow living finca with Michelin-star dining

One of southern Spain's best-loved hotels, La Bobadilla is a secluded Andalucian estate of poolside relaxation and rural pursuits.

At this countryside pad, earthy rooms and rustic-luxe spaces sit in acres of olive groves and gardens. Flit from slow days by the pool to spoiling at the spa. Discover the area by cycling and hiking or spice up a stay with cookery classes and olive oil tastings. Centre of attraction are the two sensational tasting menus at one Michelin-star restaurant La Finca.
