Gaucin, Andalucia, Spain
The best place to stay and dine is La Fructuosa in the center of Gaucin. Its bedrooms are simply but comfortably furnished, each with a tiled bathroom with tub and shower. The hotel restaurant, serving meals for 18€, is open only Wednesday to Saturday 8 to 10pm. The style of cooking is typically Andalusian, and portions are generous.
Conde Nast Traveller
"La Fructuosa... decorated in a distinctive mix of Spanish retro and modernism and with roomy balconies offering views across to Africa."
Los Angeles Times
"At night, as we dined, a swirl of stars rose over the mountains behind Gaucin. I ate a first course of oranges, olives and red cabbage drenched in a local olive oil so green, it seemed to have been pressed that afternoon; next came a delicious fresh goat cheese grilled with rosemary. The squid entree was too chewy, but the dessert, a surprisingly fruity avocado mousse, was divine. And so was the view down the steep valley, so clear I could see the 22 miles to the coast."

“Amazing accommodation there. A particular advice for clients is do not miss an afternoon at their restaurant.”
