We stayed overnight, having found out about Cortijo La Haza from the Michelin Guide. It is in a truly rural location in Olive tree country but only 15 minutes or so from the A92 motorway. A small converted farmhouse, Patriek and Bernadette run it very much themselves and both are delightful and welcoming. There are several secluded outdoor sitting areas to relax in and meals are taken in the middle patio(or inside). The room we had was rather small and dark but perfectly comfortable and with a well equipped bathroom.
The highlight is the cooking of Patriek. We had an excellent and imaginative dinner, better than any we had in Marbella.
A bonus was the welcome given to our little dog, although she disgraced herself by eating some of the cats' food.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A beautifully restored 250-year old olive cortijo, hidden away amongst the olive groves south of Iznajar, with stunning, ever-changing views of the Sierra Nevada and the valleys. 6-star service, home from home, a little corner of paradise are but a few items of praise we have received. A warm welcome awaits is our motto, but we may need to change it soon to: so good you won't want to leave! ... more less
