Our favourite rooms
All rooms at Hotel V are beautiful – so there’s no need to worry about being stuck with the chamber that no one wants. Our absolute favourite, though is Exclusive Room 10, the only room with a private terrace, which has wonderful views over the hills and down to the ocean, while the latter has high ceilings and a mezzanine level that acts as the ideal sitting area. Its enormous windows and well-chosen antique furniture are real selling points, too.
There is no pool at V – but the inviting waters of the Atlantic Ocean are less than 15 minutes’ drive away.
Take a surfer-style hoodie to protect you from the levante winds that occasionally sweep down from the north. And make sure you pack a parasol or two – many of the beaches in the area are completely unspoilt, and devoid of sunbed hire.
