Almohalla 51

This small hotel is located in the historic heart of Archidona, a beautiful and unspoilt hill town just 45 minutes from Malaga and Granada. It was created from two adjoining town houses, previously owned by 12 brothers and sisters. Uninhabited since the 1960s, they presented the opportunity to create the first hotel in the centre of Archidona, which would also make an ideal base for visiting the highlights of northern Andalucia: Malaga, Granada, Cordoba, Sevillle and Ronda. Unusually for town houses, both premises not only had small Andalucian patios but also large vegetable gardens perched high above them, with views across the town and valley beyond.

Behind the whitewashed façade, there are communal sitting rooms with a wood-burning stove, shaded patios, landscaped terraces and a plunge pool. The outside seating areas are perfect for breakfasting or for enjoying sundowners.

The upper terrace and pool have beautiful views across the town and the sierra, up to Archidona’s famous 17th-century Sanctuary of the Virgin of Grace. There’s also the ‘Gallinera’, a converted barn that is perfect for hiding away with a book or making the most of the views.
