When Marisol & Alberto described the way they imagined their wedding, I couldn't hold the excitement in, I knew it was going to be something truly special and unique, just like the two of them.

The perfect ingredients for an unforgettable night.
Driving a few miles out of the city and into the mountains that border Cordoba, you will find La Vieja Cigarra resting on a hilltop overlooking the picturesque landscape that surrounds it. As you follow rustic signposts dotted along the road and drive up the flowery passageway into la vieja cigarra you feel as though you have entered some sort of mystical garden. The cool air breeze will wash over you as the scents of jasmine lavender and lemon trees fill your nostrils.
The exclusive Spanish country house also boasts nine luxury rooms that undoubtedly keep with the atmospheric ‘cortijo’ feel that runs throughout the hotel. Most rooms come with a large bathtub and views of the stunning surrounding countryside. Each has been individually designed with scrupulous attention to detail in the decor, with a wonderful level of privacy through their own sun terraces.
