Cortijo los Lobos

Villanueva del Trabuco, Málaga

A boon for nature lovers: horse ride through stunning Andalucia or ramble mountain paths. Head back to cool off in the pool; BBQ supper


13 beds


5 bedrooms


Sleeps 10


A harmonious home for happy horses – and riders! – awaits in the breathtaking landscape of Andalucia’s National Park. While saddle-hardened riders can go on moonlit hacks and breakfast rambles, non-equestrians can walk, trek, drink from mountain springs, play with numerous cats, dogs and goats (all friendly), nod off in the shade, bask by the pool and make Spanish omlettes with eggs from the hens. June and Clive’s centre of natural horsemanship 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 inner courtyard, delightfully shaded by a rambling vine. Clive and June have thought of everything, and that includes a gorgeous heated pool.

Lovely accommodation set in beautiful gardens and a rural landscape which encourage relaxation. Being able to ride was the icing on the cake, even for a beginner like me and I felt safe at all times. June and Clive run a very special place, its a real haven.

We were made to feel instantly at home in this delightful haven in the countryside. The surroundings and the pool were calm and relaxing and for us being adopted by the family pets was an added bonus. Clive and June make a point of understanding peoples preferences and June has a knack of matching her horses to riders for those wanting to take advantage of the option to ride. A gentle hack through olive groves in the early morning sunshine was just a delight even for a nervous rider like me.


We came to Cortijo los Lobos for a week in October half term and had a fantastic time staying in El Establo. The cottage was very comfortable and well equipped, with plenty of outdoor space (both private and shared with other guests). The heated pool was a favourite with our two young children, as were all the animals. We also thoroughly enjoyed exploring the surrounding area - the authentic Spanish nature of both Villaneuva del Trabuco and Antequera was a joy to experience. Similarly, the surrounding countryside was fantastic to watch and walk in. Many thanks, Clive and June. Gracias!

We arrived to a warm welcome from our hosts, June and Clive and instantly felt at ease. We had booked 2 hours of riding a day, leaving us plenty of time by the pool! This place surpassed all our expectations. The accommodation was traditionally spanish, comfortable and clean. The stunning pool and location were great but the friendly horses and dogs really steal the show! Riding was through the olives groves and on mountain tracks on shoeless, bit-less and very happy horses. As inexperienced riders we gained a lot of confidence and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. We hope to return soon!
