The Cortijo del Marqués is a historical property in the countryside just outside Granada. If you are looking for a special place to unwind, come and stay at this unique place in Granada. Large patios, olive groves, wheat and sunflower fields – experience the beauty of Andalusia at this beautiful hotel.
The Cortijo del Marqués is the perfect place to wind down and relax. Surrounded by olive groves with wide swept views of the surrounding mountain ranges, we have restored this property mixing old world charm with modern comforts.
There is a swimming pool for summer days and fireplaces for cool nights. The Cortijo del Marqués was built to cope with Andalusia’s climate with its stone walls, patios and fountains.
The hotel is situated 20 kilometres to the north of Granada, between the Sierra del Pozuelo and the Sierra Arana, offering beautiful views of both mountain ranges, as well as the Sierra Nevada in the distance.
It is an ideal base for a variety of excursions and activities. It is only 30 minutes to drive to Granada centre, 35 minutes to the Alhambra and less than one hour to the Sierra Nevada or the Costa Tropical. The hotel is also a perfect base for different outdoor activities, such as hiking, mountain biking and horse riding.
Our restaurant serves Mediterranean cuisine with a focus on local recipes and seasonal produce, as well as a slight modern touch. We also recommend you have a look at our excellent wine list.
During the warm months, you can enjoy your drinks on our large terrace while taking the sun. The doors under the arches of the restaurant will be fully opened so that we can enjoy your meals in a semi-al fresco atmosphere. During the cooler months, our two lit fireplaces give meals an intimate and cosy ambiance, and you can enjoy your drinks on our comfortable Chesterfield sofas.
