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 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. 



Michelin-starred chef Michael Riemenschneider takes over our restaurant.

Michael Riemenschneider (40), the Michelin-starred chef who has had a string of successful restaurants across Europe, from the UK and Germany to Turkey, makes a surprise but most welcome move to one of Andalusia’s most beautiful pueblos blancos and takes the helm of the quaint La Fructuosa Restaurant in the middle of the season.


After a very short break, the restaurant will reopen its doors on Friday, the 1st of July under his stewardship. It will offer its patrons a gastronomic experience at affordable prices. Unlike most restaurants, it will have no menu: the chef will offer dishes based on what the season, what’s at peak condition on the market and, obviously, considering the guests’ dislikes, allergies, and dietary requirements. As a result, each table may well have a different menu, depending on the guests’ tastes and desires.


A very reasonably priced lunch will also be available including on weekends. 


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