The Escapio Hotel Description:

If you prefer a room with a view, you will feel right at home in this small country hotel in the Spanish province of Malaga. Each of its 12 rooms enjoys an unbelievable panorama of the Frigiliana Valley with the Sierra Nevada peaks on one side and the sea on the other. A mix of fashionable Andalusian style with Arabic influences make for fascinating design. An absolute highlight: dinner on the hotel terrace, as delicious as it is romantic.

Country Hotel: Peace between the sea and mountains

Gleaming white, La Posada Morisca is nestled in the mountainside above Frigiliana. Like all houses in this traditional village, it reflects the Arabic Mudejar architecture from the time of Andalusia’s Islamic rule. In fact, the village has received multiple awards for lovingly maintaining its traditional character. The hotel itself is surrounded by lush greenery, offering a powerful view of steep mountains, a verdant valley and the Mediterranean. Its secluded location guarantees absolute peace and quiet, not to mention peaceful sleep. Romantic window frames ensure that the morning sun won’t wake guests too early. For hikers and bikers, the area is a real paradise, with impressive stretches of landscape ideal for everything from easy walks to demanding treks or mountain bike tours.

Boutique Hotel: Andalusian charm & top comfort

All 12 guest rooms are designed in a charming, typically Andalusian yet unique country style. Hand-fashioned furniture, terra cotta floors and lots of solid wood create an authentic, stylish ambience. Each room has a separate entrance and its own terrace, making you feel as if you are in your own home. This is particularly true of the spacious Superior category. A wood stove ensures cozy warmth in the winter months, while air conditioning keeps rooms cool in summer.

Food & Drink: Quality breakfast & Regional southern Spanish cuisine

Each day begins with a delicious Continental breakfast buffet in a charmingly furnished dining room, or on the terrace if the weather is nice. For dinner, guests can choose from a small selection of dishes in the hotel restaurant. Their southern Spanish cuisine is truly excellent.

Athletics & Leisure: Hiking, exploring caves & lazing by the pool

In summer, guests can relax on lounge chairs by the fantastic pool, shaded by straw-covered sun umbrellas, enjoying a sweeping view of the valley from the garden. Around La Posada Morisca there are countless attractions, particularly for hikers and those who love the mountains, but also for history enthusiasts. These include the town of Nerja, only 8km away, with its medieval caves, the Tejeda mountains, Almijara, and of course the nearby beaches of the Costa del Sol. The village of Frigilian itself has a few sights and is worth a visit for its rural Andalusian character.

Location: Hillside location with a wonderful panorama of mountains and sea

La Posada Morisca is situated 8km from the coast, on a hillside above Frigiliana with a magnificent panorama view of the mountainous region around Malaga. The town center of Malaga (1500 m) is 15-20 minutes away.
