Hotel El Cortijo de Zahara THe Senses Collection
Hotel El Cortijo de Zahara THe Senses Collection sleeps in the arms of Zahara de los Atunes, one of the most seductive corners of the Andalusian coast.
Located south of the province of Cádiz and about 170 kilometers away from Seville, Zahara de los Atunes is located at the foot of the Sierra del Retín and in the mouth of river Cachón.

Naturally, the people here - friendly and polite as good “gaditanos” are (people from Cádiz) - is another good reason to come and enjoy this experience. The cultural offer is wide: the evening concerts are especially known and flee markets conquer the village streets.
The climate of Zahara de los Atunes is Mediterranean Oceanic, characterized by having mild winters and temperate summers. Any time of the year is excellent to dive deeper into this unique place.
