  • hotel-la-escondida-0850

A recently-renovated indoor pool with experienced spa therapists, and a brand new outdoor pool for the sun worshipers are sufficient temptations to keep you at Escondida for as long as your stay.

But for the more energetic there is a vast array of activities that can be arranged via the hotel: walking, mountain biking, horse riding, golf, hunting, sight-seeing and days out to villages and nearby places of natural beauty to name but a few.

Escondida's surrounding woodlands are also rich in animal life - wild boar, deer and the rare Iberian lynx roam the land - and you'll also spot an abundance of different bird life, including golden eagles - a species rarely seen in Europe.
