Available as a boutique hotel, or a fully serviced villa for up to 14 guests, La Esperanza is a breathtakingly beautiful, Spanish Mission-style retreat that promises to spirit you blissfully away from hectic life back home.

Perfectly positioned in a microclimate zone just 35 minutes from Granada, the hacienda (or estate) drips with glamour, nestled amongst 11 acres of sweet-scented flower gardens, pine and organic fruit trees to provide a sense of your own private, secluded paradise.

Indeed, you may find it extremely difficult to leave, particularly when surrounded by indulgent delights that include a panoramic swimming pool and hot tub, a yoga and meditation terrace, and tournament-grade tennis courts.

Meanwhile, you’ll have six en-suite bedrooms to choose from; two opulent suites, three sumptuous double rooms, and a luxury twin.  

Featuring two scenic terraces, La Feliz is a grand suite that showcases spectacular views of the Sierra Nevada mountains.  You’ll also have your own living room, dining room, and kitchen to relax in… as well as a walk-in dressing room, and a spa bathroom with a view!

La Majestuosa, the second suite, boasts direct access to two private patios, and the magnificent courtyard, which was bespoke created by traditional Moors craftsmen from Granada, to emulate the imposing style of the world-famous Alhambra palace.

Each of the remaining rooms have been designed in Andalusian style, with traditional archways and Moorish tiles complementing vaulted wooden ceilings. Not only do they feature private patios that overlook the Rio Albunuelos Valley, but access to that beautiful courtyard.

What the guests of La Esperanza say

“For me, without a doubt, La Esperanza Granada is the best place where you can enjoy a few days of relaxation. The place is spectacular, beautiful and spacious rooms with private bathrooms, incredible views of the valley and its mountains. It is very close. Both from Granada capital and from the coast. The treatment you receive from Christine and Napo makes it even more beautiful. For me it is the best place I have visited in a long time.”

“Not only is it a true wonderful place in a really beautiful valley, it’s a place to experience the magic of southern Spain. Sitting by the gorgeous Sierra Nevada mountain among oranges trees mixes with olives and all kinds of fruits. La Esperanza is a channel to connect with that simple silence that give meaning to life. Thank for the most delicious food, for it’s a taste that feeds my soul. Will be back!”

“This place is just simply magical! Located in the beautiful surrounding of Valle de Lecrin, amongst century old olive trees, it’s a quaint place where you forget the screens and come back to the essential. Decorated with the most amazing details, it is a pleasure for the senses, and gazing the night sky is just breathtaking!”
