There are many locations for stargazing but what better than a romantic, rural hideaway hotel in Andalucia?Andalucia covers a vast area from the Atlantic Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea and between those two are huge swathes of olive groves and vast dramatic mountain ranges where light pollution doesn´t reach.
Stargazing in rural Andalucia is pretty common, I can do so on my patio, but make the decision to really get away into one the many Starlight Reserves and you´ll be stunned at how many stars sprinkle our night sky.
We have some beautiful hotels in stunning locations where you can stargaze from the roof terrace or grounds but many of these can also organise a stargazing experience. A visiting astronomer will go for couples or groups and bring the night sky even closer through telescope and information.

There´s little more sobering and romantic than silence and darkness under stars, even more so if you happen to catch the shooting star season usually July and early August when we see the most.
