About the location

During your holiday, you will stay in a traditional Finca which has been tastefully restored to a high specification whilst retaining the original rustic charm, this 150 year old rural retreat is intimate, homely, and idyllic.

Surrounded by breathtaking views: unspoilt landscape of rolling hills carpeted with ancient olive trees, valleys covered with almond blossoms, fields of wild coriander and wild asparagus – the location of the Finca and equestrian centre in Andalucia is the perfect setting in which to experience traditional Spanish cooking and learn to horse ride on this horse riding holiday.

Tucked away in the picturesque whitewashed village of Los Juncares, near Iznajar on the edge of a national park, the Parque Natural de La Sierra Subbetica and centrally located in the Andalucian triangle between Cordoba, Malaga and Granada; this Finca is ideal for exploring this stunning area that boasts over 320 days of sunshine per year.

Your Finca hosts, Chef Clive and his wife Maki, are passionate about food, wine and olive oils from the area and if you choose to take the Spanish cooking lessons, you’ll have the pleasure of cooking seasonally with vegetables and herbs that are organically grown on the Finca’s land or purchased directly from the local farmers.

Established in 2002, the small and friendly family run equestrian centre is around a 15 minutes drive from the Finca and gives a warm welcome to riders of all abilities. The centre has a total of 18 horses and 2 ponies varying in age from one month to 20 years that are well trained and schooled to suit riders of all abilities.

The equestrian centre boasts a varied and exciting programme of horse riding lessons and activities that will not only improve your horse riding skills but also enable to experience Andalucian life and take in the spectacular scenery.

Rich in natural beauty, culture, heritage and history and within an hour of some of Spain's most beautiful historical cities, taking a cooking and horse riding holiday in Andalucía will ensure you make the most of your holiday.
