“Exceptional hospitality”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

We are a family of 4, well-travelled throughout Spain, with 2 children age 12 and 14 who spent a weekend at La Era. The Hotel was delightful. I usually don't like to eat in Hotels, preferring to seek out some local restaurants, but the meals there were superb, and we knew going anywhere else would be a disappointment.
We took a bike ride from the pretty white village of Zuheros to Cabra and Lucena along a "Via Verde" which is a disused railway line through dramatic and beautiful countryside filled with spring flowers. It is downhill or flat all the way and easy for the children. The owners Raul and Davinia lent us their high-end mountain bikes and took us up to the top of the village to start, and picked us up at the end. Highly recommended, though I would advise ending at Cabra if you have children, to not make the trip too long. There is a great park there with a river where you can have a picnic lunch.
In the village of Almedinilla don't miss the Roman Villa. It is remarkably well preserved with mosaics and murals.
What really made the trip special was Raul and Davinia's exceptional hospitality and kindness, doing everything possible to make our stay there so enjoyable. If you want to combine a charming hotel, great food, beautiful countryside, sporting activity, historical sites, and a taste of Andalucian culture you could not do better than to start here.

We came bicycling from Puerto Lope via Alcalà la Real and naturally needed some relaxation. La Era couldn't have been better! From the moment we entered the reception, we felt at home. Raul and Davinia treated us to tea, coffee and "dulces" by a geniously charcoal heated table! The room we got was excellent with regards to views, comfort, cleanliness, design and most importantly - the most comfortable bed we've ever slept in - better than home! After taking a bath we had a wonderful dinner in their restaurant. Both the dinner and breakfast can be recommended.

Raul and Davinia are hosts that really "see" their guests and they are genuinely interested in the people who stay there. It is with pleasure that we recommend this hotel. Enjoy!

What can we say? Raúl and Davinia have spoiled us. They take care of every single detail. Wonderful nice, clean rooms. Beautiful environment. Superb breakfasts. Best local cuisine, using organic products (meats, vegetables, fruits…) The best hotel we’ve ever been to. Not a single con to point out. And at a reasonable price.

First time at La Era, but surely not last!
