Swan up the private drive to Hotel Barcelo La Bobadilla and you'll find yourself on a 1,000 acre country estate, peppered with whitewashed buildings.

This five-star Andulucian bolthole is relaxed enough to properly chill out in – with its beautiful private gardens surrounding the property – but also has enough going on in the form of quad biking and horse riding to keep the itchy feet at bay.

Plus, most of the rooms have stunning views over the Granada hills. Ideal for a 'fly and flop' holiday if the British heatwave has exhausted you...
