Casa Vesta hotel review
Every so often when travelling around Andalucia, you stumble on a really exceptional hotel, and this is the definitely the case with Casa Vesta in Zufre.

A remote location with 360º views to the Sierra de Aracena natural park and the surrounding countryside, with its gently rolling tree-covered hills and fabulous infinity pool. The hotel has what must be one of the finest collections of contemporary art in Andalucia. Loads of boho charm and a joy to photograph.
