Advertorial – Fuerte Hoteles
Six places you can’t miss in Andalucia: paradise is not far!
Andalucía in southern Spain is a land of sun, culture, good food and nature. With more than 50 years’ experience in responsible tourism , Fuerte Hoteles invites you to travel across some of its most idyllic corners and to discover its captivating nature. Enjoy a walk through Costa de la Luz and its virgin, white sandy beaches , the National Park of Sierra de Grazalema Ronda and its route of the Pueblos Blancos (White Villages), or the Costa del Sol and its enviable climate.
Andalucia Huelva’s Fuerte Hoteles offer traditional Spanish cuisine from Jamón Serrano (dry-cured ham), paella and Malaga’s ‘pescaíto’ (exquisitely-fried fish), to Cádiz tapas and fine wine. Facing the sea, its luxury hotels are immersed in unique landscapes, and not far from lively town centres, inviting visitors to feel the magic of flamenco and the charming happiness of Andalucia fiestas in places like Marbella, Estepona, Torrox-Costa Nerja, Conil de la Frontera, Grazalema Ronda and El Rompido Huelva.
Costa de la Luz
Everyone should visit at least once the National Park of Doñana , declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, and situated next to Fuerte El Rompido in Huelva. This hotel has a unique location featuring an idyllic beach – right in the heart of the natural park of Río Piedras. It is surrounded by juniper and pine trees with stunning views of the Atlantic ocean – an ideal place for hiking and playing golf .
Not far away is Conil, in Cádiz; the perfect place to taste delicious fish and seafood, as well as its world-famous Vino de Jeréz (Sherry wine). Fuerte Conil-Costa Luz , situated opposite a golden sand beach, offers a spectacular swimming pool and spa. The kids will love the entertainment programmes of Forti Club.
But, if what you really like is venturing up to the mountains, there is no better place than the Bosque de Pinsapos – Europe’s biggest Fir tree forest – and Fuerte Grazalema Ronda – a paradise for those who love walks in nature. This rural hotel offers breathtaking views (from its sensational swimming pool) of the Guadalete river valley in the National Park of Sierra de Grazalema Ronda. There are many great options for hiking in this location.
Costa del Sol
If you are looking for a peaceful place to rest, look no further than Torrox Nerja in the eastern Costa del Sol, renowned for having the best climate in Europe . You can relax in the private coves of the Natural Park of Maro, and enjoy the astonishing views (from the seashore to the snowed heights of Sierra Nevada) in the luxury apartments of Fuerte Calaceite .
In the western side of the Costa del Sol lies the glamorous Marbella , and Puerto Banus – one of Europe’s most elegant and international marinas. The wonderful views of the Mediterranean sea make Fuerte Marbella an oasis within the city. These two luxury hotels have the best location to enjoy the local culture and entertainment.
Estepona, near Marbella, delivers a wonderful contrast of mountain and sea . Surrounded by Sierra Bermeja, Estepona offers many different hiking options and long beaches. With its spacious luxury suites, Fuerte Estepona , between Sotogrande and Puerto Banús, boasts 25,000 square metres of beachline gardens.
