An Art Boutique Hotel

The  beautiful white village (or pueblo blanco) of Gaucín, perched high up in the Serranía de Ronda, is famous for its spectacular views. At Hotel La Fructuosa, where we have created an oasis of calm in the very heart of this lovely village, our rooms and terraces have stunning panoramas stretching right across the Genal Valley to Gibraltar and Morocco in the distance.


Our new chef, Javier Ruiz Vargas, will amaze you with his creativity and the refinement of his dishes.Our guests have a choice of eating out on our terrace, enjoying the breath-taking vistas, or in our ground floor restaurant where an ancient wine press provides an unusual centrepiece. 


Announcing a new Head Chef: Javier Ruiz Vargas.

Javier Ruiz Vargas starts in this position after an international  career of more than 20 years in restaurants and five-star hotels in Spain, Portugal, Morocco, the Netherlands, Panama, the Dominican Republic and Brazil.

Javier, 45, won several awards and has worked with renowned chefs such as Angel Leon (“Aponiente”, in El Puerto de Santa Maria (Cadiz),  3*** Michelin).

Javier's family comes from Malaga and Cadiz. What better place than Gaucín, on the border between these two beautiful Andalusian provinces, for him to take over the helm of our restaurant and steer us and our guests to new culinary horizons?


La Fructuosa is located in the middle of the Serrania de Ronda.
