Travels with a Gourmet

a food lover's travels, memorable meals, culinary trials and gastronomic experiences

Yesterday night was the opening party of the Hotel Finca Cortesin, a 67-suite property up in the hills of Casares. It will be part of a large development with villas, residences a small shopping area and a golf course.

We were welcomed into the hotel courtyard its’ lovely cobblestones and colourful tiled wall before being ushered into the hotel where there were several buffet tables spread out – at the bar and outdoor terrace, drinks were served – from champagne to cocktails; at their all-day dining restaurant, there were plates of jamon, cheeses and assorted cold cuts; at Schilo, their fine dining restaurant, there were tiny tasting plates of sushi and dim sum from their Asian-inspired menu; at the Moroccan-inspired courtyard, there was a large table of petits fours, desserts and even an ice-cream bar.

Instead of a usual cocktail, guests were free to roam around the hotel and a few suites were even left open for guests to have a look. It was very relaxed and had a pretty good turn-out. After a bit of schmoozing, we left and had a quick tapas dinner at Asador Guadalmina. I’m looking forward to returning to Finca Cortesin and having brunch on their lovely terrace one of these days.

    I’ll come with you for that brunch – only if we go to the Asador place after!
