Cadiz is one of the oldest cities in Spain, but modern and luxurious hotels won’t tell you that. Fishing boats bob on the brilliant green Atlantic and white buildings run along the coast. Winding cobblestone streets reveal charming restaurants and tapas bars. This charming city is the perfect place to summer in Spain.

Casa La Siesta was built from the ground up by the owners and this dedication shows in every detail. Guests are offered gardens to roam through, bikes, a book and CD library, pre-loaded iPod, and Ren bath products.

Although Cadiz is more than 1,000 years old, the city keeps expanding. Hotel Monte Puertatierra is found in one of the city’s newer parts but remains a short walk from old Cadiz and the beach and shopping are close at hand. Large rooms with simple and stylish furnishings come with views or balconies, depending on the side of the hotel and a talented chef prepares a wide variety of menus according to your taste buds.
