My experience was too short, only there during day time, for a few hours but I could already feel the benefit and privilege of staying in such a property. A fine country private estate is what it is, but the reason why I immediately felt as I could be its ambassador was the “how you feel” when you are at La Nava del Barranco.

Experiencing a place like this, away from the crowds, in total privacy and intimacy and with good company is probably a unique experience as it depends on the nature, the season, the company. It is not a hotel, it is something else that you or your client will experience it his own personal way, as every moment will be tailor made to his preferences, likings, feelings and wishes. Yes, anything you can dream of may be possible at La Nava.


Half way between Madrid and Granada or Cordoba, right in the land of Don Quijote, only a few privileged will know of probably the most exclusive “Country Private Estate” in Spain. Located in a natural retreat it offers a universe of experiences in privacy and luxury.

The location is superb right on top of a hill. This is about 6,000 hectares of unspoiled nature and carefully crafted, exclusive experiences. Spot deer, rams, rabbits, thousands of birds and even endangered species on a 4×4 photo safari. Your clients can enjoy a horseback adventure through the Castilian countryside or admire it from above on a thrilling hot air balloon ride. And a private airstrip of more than 2km. What about that?


An ultimate luxury all-inclusive experience in with anything that is available at La Nava your client can enjoy. Pricing starts from a set price per night for the whole unit and will vary depending on the number of guests, but then everything is included, each meal, drink, and bespoke experience.

For decades, La Nava has been owned and operated by the Medem family. Thanks to their involvement in the Spanish tradition of partridge shooting, the villa has been closely linked to this activity throughout its past. Today, Javier Medem preserves the spirit of the traditional family business while taking La Nava to new heights—updating its offering while paying respect to its history and opening it to the worldwide luxury leisure market so more people can enjoy it.


La Nava’s cuisine truly sets it apart, featuring prime ingredients from the very best suppliers. Here you can savor the most sophisticated Spanish gastronomy, accompanied by local wines.

Guests can enjoy Iberian cured ham and aged cheeses, along with specialties like salmorejo and migas. Enjoy meat sourced straight from the north of Spain, and traditional dishes expertly prepared by our private chef as well as local recipes inspired by our surroundings.

We truly embrace the concept of sustainability through organic dishes that come from our own backyard. For something really special, we may recommend the fresh partridge and other local game, reflecting the tradition of hunting that’s been practiced here for generations.


Enjoy the laid-back Spanish lifestyle in one of our 15 en suite rooms, all with stunning views of the countryside. Each room has its own bathtub and shower, terrace, custom decor and plenty of space to settle in and relax.
