Cortijo del Marqués

Cortijo del Marqués

****

In the middle of glorious Spanish nowhere, Andalucia’s Cortijo del Marqués is a beautifully restored 19th-century manor turned luxury boutique hotel. Lounge poolside, ramble hand-in-hand through fields of olive trees and sunflowers, then dine in a candlelit courtyard.

Highlights:

  • Peaceful poolside

  • Striking period details

  • Soak-it-up scenery

In the know

Also need to know:

Tablet-tappers should note that WiFi doesn’t stretch to the restaurant or the El Mirador, El Torreón, La Casita rooms. It does reach the main patio and pool.Staying in high summer? Those sultry Spanish nights can get less sexy, more sticky without air-con – and not all the Cortijo’s rooms have it. Check when booking or pack breathable fabrics.

Packing tips:

Laidback and lovely, the Cortijo is quite the perfect place for losing track of time in a paperback. Explore the Spanish theme with something old-school (Don Quixote perhaps) or something to make you laugh (Tim Moore’s Travels with my Donkey).

Dress code:

Floaty maxi dresses for lounging, crisp white cotton tees for showing off his sunkissed skin.

Mr and Mrs Smith reviews

If holidays are about refreshing and recharging the senses, then this was a fabulous reboot. My abiding memory of our time at this small, relaxed, incredibly friendly hotel, is of my daughter and her new friends playing make-believe in the grounds of the hotel as a warm night descended and stars blanketed the inky sky. Free to roam safely, with imaginations fired by stories of the Alhambra and its dazzling royal history, the courtyard became a palace, and the long galleried space used for wedding receptions and parties, was a ballroom fit for princesses.

Add to this, happy memories of splash

Dining information

Restaurant:

What the dining room lacks in visual splendour it makes up for with personable service and lovingly prepared food. It’s one three-course menu suits all. Wherever possible ingredients for the modern Mediterranean dishes (think stewed veal with greens) come straight from the Cortijo’s market garden and orchard and there’s an Arabic oven in the grounds that can be lit for larger groups (if you’re in luck and there are enough of you, you’ll get to enjoy slow-cooked lamb or suckling pig).

Top table:

Make for the wood-burning fire in colder months; in summer perched beside the arched glass doors, which are flung open to let in all that country air.

Last orders:

Breakfast's served between 9am and 10.30pm, lunch between 1.30pm and a leisurely 4pm and dinner from 8pm till 10pm. Drinks can be ordered until 10.30pm.

Room service:

None.

Hotel bar:

There’s no actual bar to sit at but you can always order a jug of sangria for lounging by the pool or sip a g&t in the courtyard at sundown. Drinks are available throughout the day and you can order plates of manchego, chorizo or Iberian jamón, too. The downstairs lobby is light and cool – perfect for morning coffee and a catch-up with the papers.
