The Experience

This typical Andalusian finca is surrounded by the rolling green hills and cork oak forests of Los Alcornocales Natural Park, and you’ll reach it down a dirt track, stopping for herds of goats along the way. There are no immediate neighbours, but a nearby railway line has the occasional train passing by.

The food here is outstanding, as Karl is a professional chef: homemade porridge with dates, fresh bread and a plate of local cheeses and hams for breakfast; delicious lunches and dinners are available at least four times a week or you can find great tapas bars in Jimena de la Frontera, a five-minute drive away – ask Barbara for recommendations.

Rooms look out onto a central patio on one side, and the garden on the other; induction electric stoves keep them warm in winter and cool in summer. Relax, read, snooze or play a game of volleyball; there’s a nicely private swimming pool with an honesty bar too. Borrow a bicycle or saddle up one of Barbara’s five horses if you’re an experienced rider; you can walk, ride or bike on paths for hours without crossing a road.

Very peaceful place with wonderfully decorated rooms. The Ranchos is the ideal place to relax, to enjoy fantastic food and the great hospitality of Barbara & Karl and the warm atmosphere around (not only the weather 😉). A place we do fully recommend to everybody who is looking for a quiet, relaxing place with wonderful hosts around.

Antje & Claudia, Leichlingen, Germany

We absolutely enjoyed our stay at Rancho Los Lob and can highly recommend this wonderful place. Barbara and Karl created such a lovely and peaceful environment! Once you enter the gate you feel like in a complete different world. Also the rooms are so beautiful, very clean and with so much love to detail. Not to forget the amazing food of chef Karl, we definitely come back :)

Christina, San Roque

The luxury of being in a National Park, with paths leading for many miles into the wilderness, and being able to return to an attractive & comfortable bedroom and fine cuisine makes this place unique. But above all the wonderful energy of the owners who transmit their enthusiasm of living their dream and wanting you to share in it.

The neighbourhood

The finca is fairly remote, with views of hills and cows. The nearest town, Jimena de la Frontera, is 2km or five minutes’ drive away, and you’re 30 minutes’ drive from the typical Andalusian small town of San Roque, which has shops and plenty of authentic restaurants – try El Molino del Conde. You can also reach the exclusive resort of Sotogrande and La Linea on the Bay of Gibraltar in 30 minutes.

Barbara and Karl

Karl and Barbara are living their dream and their enthusiasm and passion reflect this. Barbara, a physiotherapist, is incredibly friendly and welcoming, and Karl, a professional chef is very pleasant but speaks little English and Spanish. They spent a year completely renovating the interior of the B&B after purchasing it from the previous owners, Wolf and Esther, who still live on-site
