In a quiet, cobbled street in the white mountain village of Aracena we discovered ‘La Casa Noble’. It’s much more than a boutique Bed and Breakfast, it’s a beautifully restored and welcoming home with lots of character and style.
Once in our room I thought I just have a few minutes lying down – but once I was on the bed I didn’t want to get up again! The bed was really comfy, with a large mattress covered with luxurious downy, embracing topper – just like in a really upscale hotel.
The linens and decorative fabrics were really lovely - overall all the room was very welcoming and comfortable.
The bathroom was immaculate and had lots of Molton Brown toiletries, and in the wardrobe were large slippers and thick cotton robes – again, as in a posh hotel.
It was so unexposed to find this kind of luxury in a small Andalusian mountain village. I was there to explore the interior of Huelva province and owner Melanie arranged for us to tour a local ‘jamon’ estate and see how the world-famous local artisan ham is produced.
Later we all met up on the terrace, together with a couple of fellow guests that checked in at the same time as us. Looking out as the sun set over the village, we all enjoyed some local gourmet ham and sipped manzanilla sherry – heaven! This led to tapas in the village, and a really fun evening out.
Melanie is a great host, arranging for activities and tours as well making this elegant home feel welcoming and friendly.
