Dreamy breakfast in the hills of Andalucía
As the sun begins to rise from the back of the mountains, the low rays hit our faces, as we get ready for a dreamy breakfast. Waking up at the Spanish countryside is pure relaxation, especially when the surroundings are visually this pleasing. We watch the glorious sun come up as we hear the coffee machine ramble as it makes our first frothy cappuccino.
We stayed in the countryside hotel Balneario Aguas de Villaharta for a few nights just to relax by the pool and fully wind down. Moreover, after spending some days in various cities in Andalucía, heading out to the mountains near Cordoba was the perfect thing to do. The drive up from Cadiz to this hotel was stunning, the rolling hills of dried sunflower stretched for miles and the occasional white doted towns shined in contrast against the greenery. I must mention that driving in Spain has changed so much in the last 15years; the roads are in great condition, it is much more safe and people actually follow regulations.
We enjoy breakfast outside as the day isn’t hot yet and watch the sunlight push through the fig trees and white sun curtains. The somewhat bohemian and aesthetics of this hotel reminds me of many Puglian masserias, which is probably why I felt at home right away. The rustic white wooden tables, the tassel sunshades and even the staff wore matching linen dresses that looked so chic. After several cappuccinos and a beautiful slow breakfast, a wonderful mood was set for the entire day.
