Entering Finca Cortesin is like entering a 19th century grand Spanish country state. This hotel is one of the better resorts in the country. It is located some 40 minutes drive to Gibraltar and to Marbella, in the municipality of Casares (one of the most beautiful white villages of Spain).
One of the better things of this hotel is the service. You don’t see them but they are around. They are courteous and they job is that everyone feels at home. Rooms are large. Ceilings are high. Space is one means luxury in the 21st century and you feel this at Finca Cortesin.
Most of the rooms have a patio, a big balcony or a small private garden. This makes the hotel very appealing for families and also very appealing for those clients looking for privacy.
The spa and the indoor pool are a dream. It makes you feel like in a 19th century “balneario” with all 21st century luxuries. The hotel also offers to clients outdoor pools and a golf course.
This hotel is a hidden gem and a not to be missed by upscale travelers willing to enjoy the best of our country.
When the Moorish King of Granada decided he deserved an outstanding palace he sent his best architects to Malaga to copy the Moorish Alcazaba…. that is how the Alhambra was born!!!
Most of our clients stopping in Malaga during a cruise will call me so to go and visit Granada and the Alhambra…. Granada is worth the bother of the almost 2 hours drive each way but…. Malaga is a GEM
And Malaga not only is the city that houses this wonderful Moorish Alcazaba and gardens but it is also the city where top Spanish painter Pablo Picasso was born. You may enjoy reading an article today on the New York times with some information on Picasso, the Picasso Museums in the city (two… its birthplace house-museum and the family museum), tapas places offering great deals and other wonders of the city.
One of the not to be missed if visiting Malaga is the wonderful Doll House Museum. It is located at Alamos Street number 32. This museum is a miniature dolls house museum. This private collection comprises over fifty hand-made, unique models, most of which date back to the 19th century. Particularly outstanding is the 19th century Andalusian collection, as well as dolls from the middle of the century and a model freight train. The houses on display run from the oldest exhibit, an 1850 Majorcan house, to a 1970 German dolls house.
