The south of Spain is a world unto itself: alpine mountains to fertile plains, farmhouse days to flamenco nights. Andalusia is about savoring two millennia's worth of rich culture and architecture, and feasting on local produce, wine and sherries. A walk down the streets of Seville is the best kind of history lesson. Add that to Granada, a fairytale-like place of minarets, flowing fountains and garden-shrouded villas, and you have the makings of an enviable Spanish experience.
Explore deep in the Andalusian countryside, lemon groves perfuming the air outside rustic farmhouses. Prepare a country-style feast or wander the back streets of Seville on a tapeo (tapas crawl) experiencing what the Andalusians call alegría: an explosion of food, wine, laughter and joy. Explore the halls of the mighty Alhambra, beguiled by its fairytale pavilions. Sample the freshest regional delicacies in the most lush countryside settings.
From a family getaway, to a small group of wine enthusiasts or larger groups looking for the most flavorful Andalusian delicacies, this MO/AD Retreat is made to be savored by all.
May and September are ideal times to visit for the weather and minimal crowds. April, June and early October still have pleasant weather and opportunities to avoid the mid-summer crush.
More time exploring local wineries or meeting with local farmers and producers, or explore farther afield in Barcelona, Madrid and beyond.
An avant-garde outpost in the center of Seville, a palatial former convent in the heart of Granada's old town—our accommodations reflect the best of Andalusia's artistic and historic influences.
In the heart of the city, opposite the Parque de Maria Luisa stretching with greenery along the Guadalquivir River. It's an avant garde masterpiece with all the comforts you'd expect, including indoor and outdoor pools plus a spa. Have a snack—and a drink—on the rooftop deck as you revel in Seville’s glorious skyline.
Nestled in Granada’s historic center, it's an artistic and historic monument built within a 16th-century convent and 12th-century Moorish house. Stroll to the Albaicin and Sacromonte sites, the wonderful Triunfo Gardens, and of course, the Alhambra. It’s your slice of that Granada magic to call home.
