The courtyard of this 19th-century mansion in Cuenca is home to a lovely magnolia and palm trees. Persian carpets lie on the floor of the large, airy suites, with hardwood floors and modern spa showers. Relax in the second floor salon, which has a fireplace and wonderful antiques.
An atmospheric destination, all cobble-stoned streets, old churches and a charm that has disappeared in much of the rest of the world. The city is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site and there is a selection of excellent museums telling of the Inca and Canari history.
