La Fructuosa

Gaucin, Andalucia, Spain


Jesus and Luis have decorated this old house in an artistic modern style, using bright warm colours to create light, spacious and cheerful rooms. Gone is the white-wash more commonly found in the old village houses; instead, you'll find striking walls of raspberry red, cobalt blue, corn yellow and grass green.

Four of the rooms have Jacuzzi bathtubs, making the Double with shower room slightly cheaper. There are 2 Twin with Jacuzzi rooms, of which Pensión has the benefit of a double sofabed. There are also 2 Double with Jacuzzi rooms, and of these Almagra has a single sofabed.

Old brass fittings, big oil paintings, an eclectic collection of antique knick knacks make this hotel a very individual, aesthetic and cosy place to stay. For extra comfort there are fans to keep you cool in summer, heating for winter, TVs and WiFi access. There is a shared roof terrace with fabulous views as far as Morocco and a quiet morning room in which to sit and contemplate village life.

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).
