“Wonderful !!! From Nancy and Carl (Belgium)”
Reviewed 13 January 2014

We were in la Era for 3 nights and with pain in our hearts we had to leave there.. Because it was really wonderful !!
The breakfast was very nice and everything or home made or ecological (bio) and every day a surprise, and Davinia tries so hard to speak English, so cute.. And now we are addicted to olive-oil :-)
The dinner is also very very good, we never ate lamb that tasted so good !!!
At the evening we had talks at the large table with Raul (he speaks excellent French) and Davinia about everything : biofood, politics in Spain and Belgium,....
We loved our room, typical Spanish.
From us La Era gets a 10 !! (and more if it was possible...)

We could not fault a thing during our stay. The room was gorgeous, very comfortable and very clean. The breakfast was different everyday and perfect. The dinner was also perfectly prepared and extremely good quality. Both Davinia and Raul are very friendly and helpful and extremely accommodating. I would recommend this place if you want somewhere peaceful to relax and we found it perfect for day trips to both Cordoba and Alhambra.

There is no door between the bedroom and the bathroom in the superior double we stayed in. A little more privacy could have been nice. But this did not affect our enjoyment of the stay at all.

Hello,

Couple thank you very much for taking these words. So glad that you may find what you were looking for a quiet place away from the bustle but also near as impressive cities like Cordoba and Granada.

We love to help you discover our land.

We hope to see you around here.
A hug,
Davinia & Raúl.

We stayed 5 nights at Hospederia la Era. Apparently this is Raul and Davinia's first year in the B&B business and we are sure that they will become well known soon. The big house is magical and romantic. Raul's family have owned it for a long time and Davinia manages the hotel jointly with Raul. They are very charming people, so eager to please and with endless patience to answer questions. They are putting their own stamp on the business.We stayed in for dinner every night and worked our way through the menu. Be prepared to eat the way the Spanish eat and enjoy their creativity, especially with the starters. Likewise with breakfast, you'll get a few surprises, lovely surprises. Above all, this is a healthy way to eat. You'll feel so much the better for it. Although the hotel is in a large village and a very nice village too, the nights were very peaceful and quiet. There is an air of community about the village. You'll feel and enjoy the Spanish way of life and there are no tourists. Instead we saw a team of ladies out whitewashing the walls alongside the main street.There is an impressive Roman Villa and a fascinating musem to enjoy and, if you are exploring Spain, this is a great place to be to reach Cordoba, Baeza & Ubeda, Granada with relative ease not to mention many other smaller places in the immediate locality. I don't know what Hospideria means but if it means Hospitality then this hotel is most appropriately named and you will love the people who run it. May they be blessed for their grace, gentleness and willingness to delight their guests. This is not your average holiday experience.

After reading all the great reports on Hospederia La Era we have just spent one night here and can confirm that everything was wonderful. Location, Food and Davinia and Raoul could not have made us feel more welcome in their lovely home.
We cannot wait for our next visit to sample more of the delicious menu they offer and explore
this beautiful area.

This building is intriguing, we wondered how old it is, and what history it holds? Whatever the story, the owners are making their own history, by providing excellent food, served to guests with pride in their region, in their attention to ecology and their local tastes. we ate mainly salads today trying their "land and sea" construction of potatoes, anchovies and beans; a broad bean,scrambled egg and jamon platter was served hot, a tomato cold soup was especially tasty onion and cheese grated into it particularly set this dish off, local red pepper salad was beautifully presented. All in all this was a treat worth driving to, thoroughly recommended.

Thank you very much,

Thank you for taking some of your time to write these words about us and our restaurant.
The story that the building has is what makes our guests and who visit and enjoy our cuisine. Thanks for appreciating our home products, organic products and in the area. It is you who do the living history of La Era, of our life.

Now all you lack to you try the hotel jajajaja.

Best regards, it was a pleasure.

As so many visitors to Spain head to the coast or the famous towns and cities it is unsurprising that an area as beautiful and interesting as the subbetica is largely unknown. Flanked by the two main motorways speeding people to the beaches and golf courses, you could easily miss it. Perhaps the fact it is not an obvious choice for tourists explains part of its charm But if you do choose to explore the region, make La Era your base, or if you need a a break and want to stay somewhere really special, book. The owners have created an oasis of calm and rustic elegance, we were made to feel so welcome, the food was superb, the decor exquisite. The owners, Davinia and Raoul, care deeply about their region, its character and products, its sustainability, evident in the cooking and decoration. The morning we left we were served a wonderful breakfast and commented on the superb hot cinnamon rolls, a local delicacy. When we left, Raoul drove ahead, through the village, until we tracked down the baker's van so we could get a packet of the rolls. Somehow, I don't think you can find that kind of care on the Costa del Sol. La Era - A truly delightful experience.
