The Experience

A harmonious home awaits in this 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. June and Clive, your kind, easy-going English hosts run an ethical horse rescue and riding centre and 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. 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 omelettes with eggs from the hens.

There are several aspects that struck me about Cortijo los Lobos: it's a magical place as the valley and views are stunning. The owners are passionate and transmit this in a lovely, calm way. I also felt I was at a unique and special place, because it was largely created for abandoned animals, and this comes across when one wanders around and sees the well-kept horses in their open paddocks.

We had the most wonderful stay in El Granero Viejo at Cortijo los Lobos! The surroundings are completely stunning and so relaxing. The little villa is beautifully decorated and has everything you could need - our private courtyard was amazing. The grounds are so lovely with so many different areas to sit and relax. It was a perfect week away, we feel so refreshed! We really hope we'll come back one day! Thank you June and Clive!

We are a couple in our 70 ‘a and do not ride horses now, but that did not prevent us from having an amazing stay at this beautiful, characterful Cortijo. The owners are delightful and completely dedicated to their home and especially their animals. 14 horses, 2 dogs and 7 cats all kept in amazing condition. From other guests we spoke to the riding was fantastic - out into the beautiful countryside surrounding the house. June (the owner) cooked delicious meals for us every night which we ate outside on their lovely courtyard. We can not recommend this place enough, and my daughter and her fami

This is a magical place to stay whether you come for the riding or just for the beautiful scenery and warm welcome. The accommodation was perfect - private and comfortable and beautifully decorated in a Spanish style. The gardens and courtyard are also wonderful. The pool wasn't open when we visited as it was too early in the season, but there are beautiful views from the pool area. The rides are through breathtaking landscape on June's well cared for horses. They are ridden without bits or shoes which was surprisingly easy. Just a lovely place to stay.

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 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!

Fran, Manchester

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!


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.
