A harmonious home for happy horses – and riders! – awaits in the breathtaking landscape of Andalucia’s National Park. While riders can go on scenic hacks and breakfast rambles, non-equestrians can walk, trek, drink from mountain springs, nod off in the shade, bask by the pool and make Spanish omlettes with eggs from the hens. June and Clive’s ethical horse rescue and riding centre is a slice of olive-groved, pine-shaded, southern-landscaped heaven, with a charming whitewashed farmhouse at its heart. As for the two cottages, these are sweetly rustic inside, all checked fabrics, wood-burning stoves and cheery reds and blues, with gleaming kitchens and barbecues and private terraces for al fresco living; there’s also a self-catering apartment for up to 4. Your kind, easy-going English hosts produce convivial meals at tables and cushioned benches in the farm’s delightful inner courtyard, shaded by a rambling vine. With the many seating areas dotted around the various courtyards and beautiful landscaped gardens leading down to the horses, Clive and June have thought of everything, including a Jacuzzi – perfect for watching the stars.
