What We Love

  • A rural location surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, but it’s just 12 miles from Granada and a 30-minute drive from the ski slopes of the Sierra Nevada mountains
  • The haute cuisine restaurant, which serves a classy, innovative Mediterranean menu
  • Views of the countryside and snow-covered mountains
  • Rooms are light and spacious, with hardwood floors and oversize windows
  • Informative tours of the wine cellars and sommelier courses

What To Know

  • There is a two-night min for Triple and Hacienda Superior rooms
  • Wine tours cost about $13 (€10) and take place Monday through Saturday, while sommelier courses cost about $32 (€25) (advance booking is essential)
  • The outdoor pool closes during winter
  • You’ll need a car to explore the area
  • Not a destination for party animals; the evening scene here is low-key
  • Easy to miss from the main road
  • Better suited to wine lovers and couples than young families
  • Around a two-hour drive from Malaga Airport

Overview

The Review

Hotel Señorio de Nevada is a charming balance of the timeless and the contemporary. The views are of ancient vineyards and the majestic Sierra Nevada mountains in the distance, but the hotel is a model of uber-efficient modernity, with minimalist interior and exterior design, and all the gadgets of 21st-century living.

The 52-acre vineyard that gave the hotel its name, and which produces the award-winning wine made on-site, remains the clear focus. Informative tours, taking in the vines and the cellars, show visitors just how the humble grape becomes the drink of the gods. Being a mere mortal, I generally enjoyed the tasting part best, and for those who really want to polish their sommelier skills, several courses are offered, in English and Spanish (advance booking is essential).

Natural light pours in through the oversize windows, and artificial light comes from high-style lamps. Brown and robin’s egg–blue armchairs and sofas are jauntily positioned next to coffee tables with tall vases and posh lifestyle magazines. The open-plan bedrooms and suites are equally fresh-faced. With huge beds (I’m tall, and they felt pleasingly proportioned even to me), top-quality linens, throws and towels, plus plasma TVs and recessed lighting, the rooms effortlessly combine home comforts and art gallery sophistication.

But for me this hotel is all about drinking in the view of the Iberian countryside, unchanged for centuries, up toward the Sierra Nevada mountain range, which pierces the huge blue skies. Of course, it’s also about drinking in the wine. Indeed, both — the vista and the vino — always make me merry at Hotel Señorio de Nevada.

A stunning hotel set in equally stunning scenery who also produce stunning wine! Very friendly and efficient. We had a junior suite which was beautifully furnished in a contemporary way - huge amount of space with beautiful bathroom. Very quiet, very clean. Popular for weddings but we didn't experience any noise in our room. Great for relaxing and enjoying the countryside. Would return in a heartbeat .

Lovely relaxed atmosphere with a great pool set in a lovely scenic location with a lovely view of the snow capped mountains behind, a walk through the vineyard worthwhile.
Nice airy rooms with friendly staff
The food in the restaurant is exceptional as are the wines.
Well worth a visit!

We stayed here for 2 nights and enjoyed the good sized room, comfortable bed and views over the vineyards. Staff were very helpful and made our stay memorable. The restaurant food was excellent and the wine and tapas provided for an evening reception on the terrace were amazing. The breakfast buffet was very good with fresh orange juice, a wide range of fruits, breads etc as well as hot dishes and good fresh coffee. Our lunch dishes of Iberico ham and coquettes were so good - and very generous portions. This hotel is about 25 mins from Grenada so a car is probably necessary but it is a good base to explore the area. We hope to return again soon.
