We had recently one of the best experiences one could have staying at a hotel. A truly discovery among charming hotels in Malaga, specifically in the town of Antequera. As a five star hotel, it assures you that everything will be at your desire but, what if you get more than you expected?
First we have to talk about the place. It is a restored old convent from the 16th century, placed in the middle of nowhere. You can perfectly imagine how life would be so peaceful for nuns and monks living there. But the fact is that, although isolated, it is very well connected, so at one hour drive you could be in any of the major cities in Andalusia.
There are only 27 rooms, which assures you that even in high season, you won’t find many people around. Each room of the lower level has its own vegetable garden so that, if you are up to it, the gardener can explain you what is growing in front of your window and show you his work.
The landscape is absolutely fabulous. You have views to the famous Torcal de Antequera, a mountain range known for its peculiar shapes and very much visited by trekking lovers. But if you are fond of sports, you will have many more options, paddle, football and golf, among others. There’s a small gym too and a spa with free entry all day, and you can request a massage if you want to.
The architecture is very much part of the experience. Paintings on the walls at the main patio are simply amazing, you could be watching them for ages! The restoration of the chapel has turned it into a place where to have dinner, celebrate a civil wedding, etc. There is also a winery where they hold flamenco shows or the lovely tea room, between old stone walls full of history. You may descend to the crypt, where you can watch archaeological discoveries while listening Gregorian chants. Or simply enjoy a meal in the beautiful restaurant with unbeatable views.
Some rooms have been restored from the old convent, so they keep the wooden beams on the ceiling or the old floor tiles. The restoration work and decoration make you feel you are staying in a place full of personality.
If you plan to make a special event, this is your place. The entrance patio makes perfectly the place for a dinner party. Wedding parties can be celebrated there or at the garden, the restaurant or the church. But to increase their offer, they have another building, called La Hacienda de la Magdalena, with a 1.000 people capacity, with spectacular views to the convent.
