Hola from Angela, Ash, Queenie (Siberpoo) and Carlos (Perro de Agua), why not come and stay with us...
Atelier88 is a beautifully authentic BnB in the city of Alcala la Real. Located in the heart of the centro historica, we are just a stone's throw from the stunning Fortaleza de la Mota, this city's jewel in the crown.

Our whole ethos is based on a love of tradition, of craftmanship, the bold use of colour and an eclectic approach to interior design whilst at the same time retaining an authentic look & feel and providing those all-important modern amenities.

Atelier88 has two primary guest spaces (Rothko &
Miro), each having their own private, shower room. Facilites in each room comprise airconditioning, central heating, hairdryer, towels & toiletries, water and a complimentary bottle of local red wine.

We have a third bedroom (Frida Kahlo) that can provide additional accommodation for a large group or family.

All guests rooms are situated on the first floor.
The historic city of Alcala la Real is situated in the southern hills of Jaen Province and is a great base for discovering this wonderful region. It is a province rich in culture, architecture and history and one of the least populated. Think of Jaen, think unspoilt wilderness (it’s been described as Europe’s largest national park), think castles (literally more than any other province), think olive groves (the world capital of olive oil)...

The beauty of Jaen’s diverse landscape is simply breathtaking and this, together with the quiet, undulating (well maintained) roads, make it the perfect choice for discovering this less travelled part of Andalucia, on four wheels or two (or two feet). There are many established routes for cycling and hiking, probably the most famous hiking route that takes in Alcala la Real is the GR7 (Gran Recorrido Siete). It is also one of the destinations for pilgrims following the Camino Mozarabe route, heading north to Santiago de Compostella.
Alcala la Real was given its royal (Real) title by Alfonso XI of Castile (1341) and its city status by King John II (1432). However, with a population of around 22,000, it feels more like a small working town and you will hear it referred to as such, some locals even call it the village... As you approach Alcala la Real from any direction the skyline is dominated by the magnificent Fortaleza de la Mota, a fortress that marked the border between the kingdoms of Granada and Castille for over 150 years. It truly is a wonderful place to visit and the views are spectacular.
