Save to favouritesPrintMailLa FructuosaGaucin residents know that for great food and a convivial atmosphere Restaurant La Fructuosa is the place to go. Since it opened, it's become a firm favourite with locals for long lazy Sunday lunches and romantic starlight dinners on its beautiful terrace. The cuisine is authentic Spanish and Mediterranean; the views of the distant coast are fabulous. Jesus Balsa and Luis Ruiberriz, the owners, created this wonderful restaurant and small hotel from an old ramshackle village house. The old wine cellar was transformed into a cosy restaurant where paintings and sculptures by local artists adorn the walls, and the original chestnut beams and wine press remain as prominent features. Then they added 5 imaginatively-decorated [r:SP010:bedrooms], most with Jacuzzi bathtubs. It makes an ideal destination for relaxing, walking in the mountains and exploring Andalucia's "pueblos blancos" (the white hilltop towns).
