El Cortijo Boutique Siete Calas

Often our most treasured travel memories are those unexpected discoveries, just like our latest hidden gem.

El Cortijo Boutique Siete Calas is a magical Mediterranean hideaway, secluded within the spectacular Cabo de Gata-Níjar Natural Park, a protected haven hugging the striking coast of Almería.

In a little over two and half hours east from Malaga you will be world’s away, immersed in rugged, wild, and soul-stirring landscapes that have inspired artists, poets and filmmakers.

Here a rustic farmstead, the once bustling hub of an estate made rich from the region’s historic silver and gold mines, has been exquisitely reimagined as the refined and sustainably driven, Boutique Cortijo, offering authentic Andalucian hospitality with a luxurious flair.

Set within the ancient volcanic caldera of the Rodalquilar Valley, with seductive views of the pristine untouched shores of the Mediterranean, Cortijo Boutique Siete Calas has two self-contained ‘villa’ apartments, as well as seven signature rooms and suites, beautifully designed and appointed in natural materials, and equipped with 5-star amenities.

Each is evocatively named after seven secluded coves that mark this extraordinary coastline, including ‘El Playazo’, the protagonist of the spectacular Cortijo views. This blissful beach of pristine sands is sheltered by fossil dunes, with crystalline waters that are home to rare sea life – a must for snorkelling.

Each sun-kissed day begins with an epicurean breakfast on the terrace, before a hike to a hidden cove, a charted sailing trip, or maybe a guided tour of the nearby deserted goldmines. As the sun sets, it’s time to relax at the rooftop Chill Out for cocktails, before dinner under the stars, savouring home-cooked Mediterranean and international dishes.

This is Europe’s sunniest (and driest) region, so take a road trip east, for sun-splashed days of boutique luxury at this hidden gem.
