Taking much from its heavenly Andalucían surrounds, La Bobadilla sits in the Sierra de Loja, not far from Granada or the coast. And having stepped onto this isolated rural estate with the mountains in sight, it is easy to forget that any other mode of life exists. Riding, cycling and walking tracks make for breezy days of exploration between farms and olive groves under the southern Spanish sun, while the resort itself resembles a charming white-washed town.
Here, stately terraces, courtyards with quietly trickling fountains and secluded nooks are matched by soaring Mudéjar architecture (an enchantingly ornate style that merged European and Moorish design between medieval times and the 17th-century). Spotless and thoughtfully detailed rooms follow in the same vein, with breathtaking views of the landscape from balconies or handsome exposed brick bathrooms. After lounging by its two palm-lined pools, your soul will surely feel fulfilled.
