We returned to the magical resort of Finca Cortesin, west of Marbella & Estepona, to celebrate our second wedding anniversary.
This resort is flawless, magical and really inspirational. It was nothing but countryside and a small farmhouse a few years ago but the family (a wealthy Spanish property developer) invested a mammoth 250 million euro in creating a world class resort in the classic Andalusian style. (Their original farmhouse remains, near the entrance for private rentals).
Architects Roger Torras & Ignacio Sierra have cleverly created a thoroughly modern destination but using classic Andalusian design and vintage materials.
The interior design is by the late Duarte Pinto Coelho (Portuguese, lived in Spain) who has used reclaimed materials such as stone flagstones from a former monastery in Portugal and loads of antiques to create a wonderful ambiance.
Bedrooms are stunning by Ana & Cristina Calderón – muted tones, luxurious fabrics, 4 metre high ceilings and acres of space. The hotel had kidly upgraded us to one of the Pool Suites, a stunning space!
