a privately owned charming hotel in Malaga
This romantic boutique hotel is the result of a lot of hard work, passion and imagination from owners Patrick and Emma. Posada Los Cantaros is a charming rural hotel with just 5 rooms in Malaga, Andalucia. After extensive love, pampering and renovation this 19th-century farmhouse was brought back to life whilst retaining many of the original features. Handmade terracotta floors, stone walls and fireplaces and embroidered cotton sheets are just some of the features that make this little gem so treasured by its owners and guests.
Hiking, horse riding, canoeing, cycling and canyoning are all available nearby. Enjoy a candlelit drink on the roof terrace and watch the sunset across the surrounding countryside.
Owner, Patrick, is well aware that many people's happiness starts with food which is why he has spent so much attention on the dining experience at Posada Los Cantaros. Succulent stone-grilled meats, Iberico ham and cheese fondues are just some of the delicacies to be enjoyed during your stay.
