My wife and I had an unbelievable experience staying at Cortijo La Fe during our recent bicycle tour. We had cycled about 50 km to get there, and within 1 km of the hotel my wife took a spill on her bike on the rough and rocky road and received a small but scary head wound. After recovering enough to continue we arrived to see Dominique rushing out to meet us. After seeing we had a first aid problem, she rushed to get her very well stocked first aid kit and her husband Richard (Ricardo) to assist. Luckily, we got everything cleaned up and dressed without a trip to the hospital and were able to continue with our stay. We had already decided to spend the next day there at the Cortijo to rest and recover and had the unbelievable luck to be the only guests there during our 2 nights. So we had the place to ourselves and were treated to a wonderful & romantic dinner and fantastic conversation for too short a time. The turkish bath was fantastic, and I haven't been anywhere this quiet and relaxing in a long time. They helped us make arrangements for our next stop in Granada, getting Alhambra tickets, and reservations at Las Estrellas Mirador San Nicolas (which is THE place to splurge for a meal in Granada). Dominique & Richard have a fascinating life story, and were so entertained getting to hear it in Dominique's enthusiastic and inimitable style. We loved her to death!
If you're in the area, it's worth a stop for a drink or just to say hi even if you can't stay the night. Beautiful place and fantastic hosts we'll always remember.
