“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

After reading all the great reports on Hospederia La Era we have just spent one night here and can confirm that everything was wonderful. Location, Food and Davinia and Raoul could not have made us feel more welcome in their lovely home.
We cannot wait for our next visit to sample more of the delicious menu they offer and explore
this beautiful area.

This building is intriguing, we wondered how old it is, and what history it holds? Whatever the story, the owners are making their own history, by providing excellent food, served to guests with pride in their region, in their attention to ecology and their local tastes. we ate mainly salads today trying their "land and sea" construction of potatoes, anchovies and beans; a broad bean,scrambled egg and jamon platter was served hot, a tomato cold soup was especially tasty onion and cheese grated into it particularly set this dish off, local red pepper salad was beautifully presented. All in all this was a treat worth driving to, thoroughly recommended.

Thank you very much,

Thank you for taking some of your time to write these words about us and our restaurant.
The story that the building has is what makes our guests and who visit and enjoy our cuisine. Thanks for appreciating our home products, organic products and in the area. It is you who do the living history of La Era, of our life.

Now all you lack to you try the hotel jajajaja.

Best regards, it was a pleasure.

We had a lovely meal on the terrace at Hospederia la Era. Extremely kind and helpful owners - nothing was too much trouble and we loved the food. Hope to return soon to sample more of the menu. Well done and thank you.

As so many visitors to Spain head to the coast or the famous towns and cities it is unsurprising that an area as beautiful and interesting as the subbetica is largely unknown. Flanked by the two main motorways speeding people to the beaches and golf courses, you could easily miss it. Perhaps the fact it is not an obvious choice for tourists explains part of its charm But if you do choose to explore the region, make La Era your base, or if you need a a break and want to stay somewhere really special, book. The owners have created an oasis of calm and rustic elegance, we were made to feel so welcome, the food was superb, the decor exquisite. The owners, Davinia and Raoul, care deeply about their region, its character and products, its sustainability, evident in the cooking and decoration. The morning we left we were served a wonderful breakfast and commented on the superb hot cinnamon rolls, a local delicacy. When we left, Raoul drove ahead, through the village, until we tracked down the baker's van so we could get a packet of the rolls. Somehow, I don't think you can find that kind of care on the Costa del Sol. La Era - A truly delightful experience.

From the moment we walked through the doors of this delightful hotel we knew we had found the perfect retreat. We stayed here to celebrate my birthday and the time we spent here was extremely enjoyable and restful.

The hotel itself has been beautifully and tastefully renovated and oozes character. We were warmly welcomed by Davinia and Raul and they went out of their way to make sure our stay was perfect. Our room was very comfortable and the bathroom had a combined bath and shower - the shower being wonderfully powerful. There was A/C and wi-fi in the room. There was also ample space for parking immediately outside the hotel.

The swimming pool was also gorgeous - just the right size and temperature to cool down in and the sun loungers were very comfortable. There is a very cosy dining room but we opted to eat dinner outside on the terrace, which was delightful. Our meal consisted of two imaginative salads and then my husband had a very tasty steak and I had salmon with a mushroom sauce. Davinia and Raul then surprised me with an apple cake with candles on it and a bottle of cava as a birthday gift from them, which I thought was extremely thoughtful of them. We also had a wonderful breakfast on the terrace the following morning.

Every thing about this hotel is wonderful - it is an extremely restful and relaxing place to stay and the additional thoughtful touches, like the staircase up to our room after dinner was lit by candelight (very romantic), the chocolates and freshly cut sunflowers in the room, the beautiful soft linen on the bed, the care in the way the hotel had been furnished and decorated made this the perfect retreat for us.

On a trip down through Spain we stayed just one night (would have loved to stay longer). Fabulous hospitality from the owners, could not have wanted more. Only down side was the weather which was not that special and too cool to use the pool. Food was great, breakfast just kept coming! Hope to visit again.

Lovely people awaiting your arrival; from the first moment they share their authentic joy of you visiting their place. How pleasant, friendly and warm is the company of both Davinia and Raoul. Their food, breakfast as well as dinner, is characterized by high quality, local, biological ingredients and home made products, combined in great dishes with a wonderfull taste. The B&B itself is like the people who run it: a serene place that you never want to leave. Davinia and Chef Raoul, we will be back. Ewit & Jolanda
