Sierra de Aracena and Picos de Aroche Natural Park Hotels | Places to Stay in Sierra de Aracena and Picos de Aroche Natural Park

August 22, 2022 Velvet Mowry

Man and nature coexist in harmony in the Sierra de Aracena and Picos de Aroche Natural Park. Part of the Sierra Morena mountain system, this protected landscape has it all: high peaks and rocky cliffs, quaint villages, and wooded valleys shaded by Mediterranean oak and chestnut groves. The area is easily explored on foot via a system of walking paths, allowing visitors to properly take in the vivid green grass and colorful wildflowers. Make sure to taste the local fare while you’re here—this region is particularly known for its Iberian black pork and wild mushrooms.

Luxury B&B in Sierra de Aracena Natural Park

Hidden Gem

Reviewed By Bob M

What a find, this out of the way little gem of a boutique B&B was an amazing place for relaxation and a touch of history. Alec & Christina are excellent hosts, the evening meal of local pork was delicious, highlight of the breakfast was the homemade jams.

Casa Rural Cinco Balcones

Spotless, well positioned and great host

Reviewed By sheiladA4740RP

Situated within easy wAlking to all the sights. On arrival Miguel showed us two available rooms so we could decide which we preferred. We chose a nice room to the front of the hotel which gave a lovely view towards the town. Easy parking on the street opposite. Miguel gave us a map and marked the sights and places to eat. He also pointed out the kitchen and sitting room facility which was spotless albeit we only made a cup of tea. But this would be great for preparing sandwiches for walking. There was also a nice patio to the rear which was good for relaxing after walking/sightseeing. The bar downstairs was great for breakfast and closed fairly early so was not noisy at night. We enjoyed a lovely coffee and toast for 2.50 euros per person. Overall a great find ..I would definitely stay here again.

We were part of a small group touring Spain. Our room was spacious and clean. The staff were super friendly. A top notch hotel. Our room was clean and the bed was comfortable. We enjoyed drinks in the bar and lounge area, and had a pleasant dinner in the dining room. This may be the best hotel of our trip.

Barcelo Aracena

Beautiful view and hotel, but not a good experience

Reviewed By Deniscastel

The view from the hotel on the city of Aracena and on the hills (from the back side) are just wonderful. Awesome lobby, friendly and helpful staff, breakfast is OK. But for many reasons, we were not really satisfied with our stay : 1) Rooms are equipped with cold white Led bulbs, not powerful enough, which give a gloomy atmosphere, emphasized by the grey decoration. In the evening, it was like being at a funeral. Not what we expect from a hotel room ! We regret also that there is only one armchair available in the double room. Where is supposed to seat comfortably the second person ? 2) Everywhere in the public spaces, the music is loud, what is very unpleasant, especially during breakfast. Hard to relax and make it a moment of serenity, in total opposition with the beautiful nature of the Sierra of Aracena. 3) We were also surprised that there is nobody at the front desk. You have to ring to have somebody coming ! Not a soul to welcome you or to greet you ! How sad ! 4) Lastly, the old town and the restaurants are closed to the hotel, but you have to cross a main road with a lot of traffic without any secure crossway. That is dangerous. It's up to the management to improve these different points.

Relaxing Long weekend on the Outskirts of Aracena

Reviewed By LuzLiving

The finca is a 5 minute drive outside the town of Aracena. It is a perfect spot to disconnect for a while. The rooms are just like you see in the photos. Very homely and nice an warm. The staff were very helpful and you are given a pack to prepare your own breakfast in the morning. Everything is very clean and the water pressure for showers is great, only slight complaint is that the showerhead is low so a person over 6ft has to crouch a little. Would highly recommend

There is free street parking just outside...

Reviewed By 832LarsB

Small cosy hotel. There is a living room and a small yard where breakfast is served. I did not have breakfast because I did not like the very noisy "waterfall" they had installed there.... Room was small, bed was good but the chair uncomfortable. Minibar was nice to have cool water, bathroom fine, aircon. and wifi fine. My room had windows facing the yard, so I had to keep them closed during day time due to the noisy waterfall. Luckily it is first turned on just before 9 o clock and turned off again before bed time.

Still charming, 5 years after first visit

Reviewed By Maureen600

This was my 4th visit to Finca Valbono with a small group of UK walkers and our Leader Lynne (Nordic Walking Fit, UK). There is much description of Valbono on Tripadvisor and accurate photos. Suffice to say it still offers a warm, friendly welcome. I wondered if the Covid pandemic had changed it but am pleased to say it still felt the same. The Managers and staff are very good. For us hopeless Brits with only rudimentary Spanish there was never any problem making ourselves understood. We had a couple of very wet cold days and it was a real pleasure to come back to the roaring log fire in the lounge. Nice food too, although the Restaurant may not be open every day. Best to check.

La Posada de San Marcos

Enjoy a wonderful stay in a special part of the Natural Park Sierra de Aracena y Picos de Aroche at Las Posadas in Alájar providing low impact, environmentally friendly accommodation within a natural park along with invaluable help and advice from your hosts Lucy and Ángel. At La Posada de San Marcos the only sound you will hear is the breeze in the cork oak trees, the babbling of the stream, birdsong and crickets. The view towards the oak clad hill behind us or towards the village and the Peña beyond provide the perfect backdrop from your room terrace or the gardens. The perfect opportunity to experience an environmentally friendly, energy efficient hotel with a superior level of accommodation and disabled access. Relax in our garden and if it gets too warm plunge into our 12 metre pool to cool off or take some exercise.Or alternatively you can stay at our sister hotel La Posada de Alájar, a renovated inn dating from the 18th Century where you are surrounded by the history of its walls and chestnut beamed ceilings. Centrally located by the village square with its restaurants, bars and shops everything is close to hand. Cosy rooms, cheerfully decorated, ensure an enjoyable and comfortable holiday.

Wonderful

Reviewed By edm1887

We love walking and selected La Posada as a base for exploring the region, and we're so glad we did. Lucy and Angel are perfect hosts and made us, and the other guests, feel very welcome. The rooms are clean and airy, and all have access to a terrace or balcony. We had dinner there on four nights, and Lucy's cooking is amazing - generous portions of local dishes, and wonderful organic red wine to wash it all down with. We had a guided walk with Angel which was very interesting - he is a mine of information about the area, flora and fauna, and made us appreciate our surroundings all the more. We also had the jamon and sherry tasting with him, and if you want to try some of the best jamon iberico I have ever tasted, this is the place to do it. It really does melt in your mouth. Lucy and Angel also provided us with details of all the local walks, most of which can be done from La Posada, as well as wonderful packed lunches - the tortilla and empanadas were out of this world! They have also done everything they can to minimise the impact of La Posada on the environment, and if more hotels did half as much as they do, the world would be a better place. We were genuinely sorry to leave, and have no hesitation in recommending La Posada very highly to anyone wanted to spend time in Alajar. You will not be disappointed. Thank you Lucy and Angel.
