Check-in and switch off at this rural idyll tucked away in the hills between Estepona and Sotogrande. Finca Cortesin leads the way for its R&R qualities. The suites are gorgeous and come in palatial proportions (particularly the super-sized bathrooms) and there are two four bedroom villas perfect for families or groups of friends. However tempting it is to retreat within the cocoon-like walls, the hotel is also brilliantly located for exploring. Drive up through mountain villages to Ronda, head to Marbella or five minutes down the road to the hotel’s brilliant beach club. Other wow factors include exceptional golf and a spa snow cabin.
