A grand palace stay in Andalusia, with beautiful gardens, a spa and lavish interiors - includes breakfast, spa access and a treatment voucher

Roman ruins, citrus-filled gardens, and lashings of museum-worthy Tuscan and Moorish interiors set the scene at Hospes Palacio del Bailio, a 16th-century palace in the ancient Andalusian city of Córdoba. Add to the mix a series of heart-stoppingly beautiful courtyards and a truly enchanting outdoor pool with sunloungers and daybeds, and you get the sense this is somewhere quite special.

Everything about this historic building turned five-star hotel exudes class. Most exceptional, though, are the well-designed guest rooms and suites - all of which impress with contemporary boutique-chic décor, thoughtful colour schemes, soft lighting, comfortable beds swathed in high thread-count Egyptian cottons, flatscreen TVs, and plenty of modern-day luxuries.

Elsewhere, there’s a library, lots of decorative outdoor areas, and a beautiful spa that has a courtyard surrounded by Roman columns for massage and spa treatment cabins as well as subterranean Roman baths. And the wining and dining options are equally attractive; especially the signature Arbequina restaurant for avant-garde cuisine and the terrace bar for tapas, local specialties, made-to-order cocktails, craft beers, and Spanish and international wines.
