Right in the heart of the old quarter of Sanlucar de Barrameda, this delightful hotel started life as a bodega in the C17th. Lovingly and meticulously restored, preserving many original features, it has just recently been awarded the prize of the best sustainable hotel in Europe.

Sun and light pervade throughout the building, from the pretty, ground floor patio Andaluz, embracing you with its scent of orange blossom and the sound of water from its fountain to the rooftop terrace with its splendid views across the town.

Beautifully designed and furnished and decorated in the best of taste, its spacious bedrooms, all with a balcony or large window, are modern and elegant, with emphasis placed on comfort and quality.

With a cosy reading room and cafeteria, you are a very short walk to the town’s main square “Plaza del Cabildo” lined with atmospheric bars and restaurants offering Sanlucar’s culinary delights.

 The beach and the old fishing quarter “Bajo De Guia” on the estuary of the Rio Guadalquivir where Columbus set off on his third voyage are less than a kilometre away. The special, local langostinos along with a glass of manzanilla at the typical restaurants there should not be missed.


The hotel has 15 double bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms. They all have balconies or large windows which either look onto the street or the patio Andaluz.

They are decorated in neutral, soothing tones, and furnished in the minimalist style, with contemporary touches blending in with original features.

Standard doubles – 20/21 m2. Double bed: 1,60m

Superior doubles – 22/26 m2. Double bed: 1,80 m

Junior suite – 32m2. Double bed: 1,80m. On top floor with direct access to rooftop terrace.

San LĂșcar de Barrameda, Andalucia

The reason why most people come here is to see the huge bodegas where the dry “manzanilla” wine is produced. Other main attractions are to take a boat trip up the Guadalquivir, to visit the Doñana Park, the Salinas (salt beds) and pine forest of Monte Algaida, to wander round old Salúcar, to visit its lively market, to eat the freshest of fish and the famous prawns from here and just to be in a real place, still untouched by mass tourism.

  • Visit sherry bodegas, best come in early June for Fería de Manzanilla, a celebration of the local version.
  • Doñana National Park, a haven for migratory birds
  • Boat trip up the Guadalquivir
  • Visit the local villages and Cadiz itself
  • See the famous Andalucian processions at Easter week or the Romeria del Rocío in late May
  • Horse racing on the beach, two weekends in August
