La Casa Noble
Ranked #1 of 2 Aracena B&B and Inns
Reviewed April 11, 2013

We spent five nights here and loved every moment of it. The hotel is amazing, with original tiles and frescos, a big, comfortable, relaxing bedroom with gorgeous Molten Brown toiletries, a cozy fire in the living room at night, and delicious breakfasts to wake up to. Melanie the owner was fantastic, giving us brilliant tips of where to eat in the evening and highlighting the local delicacies, going out of her way to be helpful, for example photocopying walks for us so we didn't have to take the whole book. Melanie was so welcoming and friendly, we felt like we really got to know her and her sister, and one of the days they invited us to take a hike with their friends in the countryside and go for a meal with them - it was a fantastic, hilarious and unforgettable day! Aracena and the surrounding countryside was a kaleidoscope of wild flowers, with picturesque white-washed villages surrounded by rolling green hills. Great food, great scenery, great company, and tinto con limon - what more could anyone ask for?

What a fab time we had with you guys too - I love it when people come as clients and leave as friends. It was our pleasure to have you guys come with on the walk and lunch (and I especially appreciate your editing here) ha ha.
I can't take all the credit - the Sierras put its best foot forward and was truly gorgeous - and clearly my sisters razor wit and sunny disposition helped to create the mood.
Thanks too for the photos that you posted on Facebook - they were excellent.
Catch you guys sooner rather than later I hope - Sending sunshine from Spain. Melanie

From the very moment we made our reservation, owner and host, Melanie went out of her way to make our stay enjoyable and memorable. Emailed directions, assistance with car parking, accompanying us to a good local restaurant, watching the local easter holy week procession, all of this and more, and all provided with a smile and good natured humour.
The hotel itself has been beautifully renovated, the rooms are spacious, well lit and very comfortable. Bed, linen and bathroom are all superb. We had elected to take the full "package" and can recommend that to other guests. The tapas and cooked breakfast were very good indeed.
Our only regret was that we had only planned for one night. In hindsight, we should have liked to stay longer, using La Casa Noble as a base for visiting the surrounding area. (It is only 1.5 hrs from Seville)
In short, we absolutely loved this place. Thanks Melanie, for a wonderful time!

Room Tip: The Castillo suite is wonderful and has a great view over the town.

You really should have stayed longer . . . Christine and I both missed you when you guys left. Thanks so much for taking the time to share your experiences - As it turned out you caught one of the few Easter processions that went out (running back early to get out of the rain not withstanding).
It means a lot that you enjoyed the tapas . . . you came with high standards and expectations - I am glad we met them.
Hope to catch you guys again somewhere in your voyage around the globe - the world certainly is a small small place. Thanks for coming - great knowing you both! Melanie

Having read the reviews we expected it to be good, but it was great. We stayed for two nights in mid March. We had wonderful hospitality in a beautiful house lovingly restored and two hughly enjoyable evenings spent enjoying the owner's tapas and wine in the sitting room with the other guests. We had a lovely lovely time.

I am so pleased that you chose to join us for the Tapas at Twilight - they were definitely some fun evenings in front of the fireplace and thanks for taking the time to let other travellers know what you enjoyed most about your stay. We strive to maintain a high standard, and we know that the pressure is on to make sure we meet the expectations of each of our guests - I am thrilled that we not only met, but exceeded those expectations.
Thanks for making the evenings so much fun.
Cheers, Melanie

The first decision that you are faced with when making a reservation with La Casa Noble is between B&B or "The Full Package" including gourmet breakfast and evening Tapas and concierge services.
Deciding to take The Full Package was the best decision we made.
The title of the review is "The Magical Mystery Tour" the phrase Magical Mystery Tour describes wonderfully the four nights we enjoyed at La Casa Noble.
From the moment we arrived our host Melanie made it her business to make sure our stay was the best possible.
Her detailed knowledge of local attractions and restaurants is second to none. Do not be afraid, take her recommendations.
Melanie booked four lunchtime meals at different restaurants to suit our intended travels, all were fantastic, allowing us to sample some of the best food we have eaten anywhere.
All this, then evening Tapas with wine in the cosy lounge with Melanie, lots of laughter and super tasty Tapas.
We stayed in the Castillo suite with views over Aracena to the Castille. Real quality......the attention to detail throughout really shows. The bed was one of the most comfortable imaginable.
The next morning enjoy your personalised breakfast.....freshly prepared........delicious.
Later in the evening make sure to wander downstairs to the bar that is part of the establishment, Davide the barman will make you welcome and at home, a perfect place to relax and end the day.
If at all possible reader....take "The Magical Mystery Tour" you will not regret it

Room Tip: Castillo has the panoramic views.

I love the title of your review!! Thats classic. So thrilled that you took the time to share your experience with (hopefully) future travellers to the area. I had a brilliant time with you guys - it can hardly be considered work when you are having that much fun though. Thanks to you both for your super positive out look on everything and your willingness to go with the suggestions and truly explore the lesser known nooks and crannies of the region.
I shall pass on the comments to David in the bar also - he was quite depressed when you guys left.
Until next time our paths cross - and I for one hope they do - thanks a million and a big Whey Aye Man from all of us at La Casa Noble!!
Cheers Melanie xx

My fiancé (now wife) and I were lucky enough to stay here for a few nights on our pre-wedding honeymoon trip this past Summer. We couldn't have had a better experience! The place is exquisite inside and out. Each room has its own theme and fitted decor that transports you to another time and place. After traveling to 9 different countries in two months, we can easily say this was the best accommodations we had the entire trip. Also, don't forget to go down below to the underground bar. The design, layout, and service absolutely put this place over the edge. I told Melanie, the owner, they should open a place up like this in Hollywood. It would be an instant hit.

Anyway, long story short: We loved it and can't wait to come back again soon. Melanie made sure we were always comfortable and made us feel like we were at home. Thanks for everything!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Mariposa suite, which was nice because it wasn't connected to the main building...

I am so glad that you were still so full of happy memories to write your review now - and what fabulous photos. I absolutely love the "Besos de Chocolate" (Chocolate Cup Kisses) photo from the bar. I would love it if you could send me the originals - they are all so beautiful.
Thanks for taking the time to write te review, I truly appreciate it . . . perhaps we will see you guys back here for your anniversary . . . or I shall have to catch you both in California.
Thanks again! Melanie

Had a lovely night at La Casa Noble. The house is a beautifully renovated. Melanie is a wonderful hostess, and directed us on a beautiful walk, starting from Aracena, with an excellent map. We were there at the end of October. Our 10 km circular walk took us through the 'dehesa' forest, with lots of falling acorns, and Iberian pigs to eat them. The countryside consists of lovely rolling hills. We followed a dirt road through various kinds of oak trees, including cork oaks. Old stone walls, donkeys, horses, geese, sheep, ducks, goats - all on centuries' old farms (still actively farmed). The Museo del Jamon in Aracena was cute. The caves, which are right in town, are also nice. Had an excellent meal for 2 for 14 euros at Rincon Juan , that was right around the corner. I hope to go again but for a few days, to explore some more of the walking.

I am always thrilled when someone not only reviews the house but gives such a vibrant description of the natural beauty that surrounds us here in the Sierras de Aracena. You were certainly here at a perfect time to enjoy the walking trails - but you have many left to discover.
I look forward to when you do return . . . I (and Pepe in Rincon de Juan) will be waiting!
Until then - Safe and Happy travels!

Although we were booked in to La Casa Noble we got lost once once we were in Aracena, but a quick phone call got Melanie to beam us in by coming to meet us! She was totally welcoming and friendly and saw us into the Mariposa Suite - wow! Attention to detail, the ambience of the house with so much good heart, art and friendliness - the most comfortable bed, the tastiest tapas (its presentation a piece of gastroart in itself that we just gazed before grazing, no, gorging discreetly) all on a small terrace with an view of the castle and sunset - seriously romantic, and all making our short stay memorable. Jenny's dietary requirements were all taken care of at breakfast and Melanie recommended and provided map and directions to an excellent seafood restaurant where we had lunch on our way to Portugal . I would therefore recommend the very special CasaNoble experience provided by Melanie and her staff without any hesitation - definitely the best place we stayed at on our trip through Spain and Portugal. Go for it!

Room Tip: We'd recommend the Mariposa room because we experienced it - also it sort of has its own terrac...

I am completely thrilled to see that you were able to find my favourite hole in the wall restaurant in Portugal following my less than specific directions . . . Thanks so much for taking the time to write an opinion of Tripadvisor, and an even bigger thank you for the kind words . . . I am especially chuffed at the term 'gastroart" - it is not one that I have used or seen before, but it certainly conveys what I try to achieve with the tapas in the house - an experience not just for the tastebuds, but for the eyes as well.
Until we meet again - happy trails!
Melanie
