STARGAZERS get excited – the Olive Press brings you Spain’s top five hotels for watching the night sky. And, with the summer season bringing on the meteor showers, you’ll want to take advantage of these truly stunning views.

1: Parador de Canadas del Teide – Santa Cruz de Tenerife

Nestled in the Canadas del Teide National Park, this parador (one of the ultra-high end hotels that dot the country) is totally free of light pollution. It is even equipped with an observatory with two high-resolution telescopes.

2: El Milano Real – Avila

El Milano Real entertains its guests with themed suites, each representing a different city from across the globe. It is superbly placed near the Sierra de Gredos, a location ideal for catching a glimpse of the meteor showers.

3: Vilar Rural de Cardona – Barcelona

Located just outside the village of Cardona, a stone’s throw from Barcelona, Vilar Rural combines the tranquil nature of a pastoral retreat with the comfort of a luxury hotel. It’s remote location ensures a clear sky for stargazing.

4: Hotel Port d’Ager – Lleida

In the heart of the valleys of the Sierra de Montsec, the Hotel Port d’Ager provides guests with homely rooms filled with rustic charm. The excellent restaurant has a sweeping terrace bar with unspoilt views of the countryside and night sky.

5: Melia Tamarindos – Las Palmas

From your neoclassical suite at the Melia Tamarindos you can look out on San Agustin beach, take a breath of crisp sea air and gaze at the heavens. Though a coastal resort, the Melia is free from tourist trash and offers many activities, including astronomy sessions taught by university professors in its observatory.
