The best breakfast

The long catalog of awards won by Finca Cortesín, one of the best resorts in our country, was missing the award for the

The culprit of everything is chef Lutz Bösing.

We will have to go to Casares, between Marbella and Sotogrande where this exclusive independent hotel is hidden and as such, a member of Preferred Hotels & Resorts.
