With breathtaking mountain views and a spectacular rural location, heated pool, Jacuzzi, terraces, and gardens, whether you come to ride, or just to enjoy a relaxing holiday, you will unwind and recharge in this peaceful corner of Andalusia.
Guest accommodation is centered around Cortijo Los Lobos' beautiful old family farmhouse and Mediterranean courtyard garden. Two Spanish style cottages have private patios, one also has a roof terrace. All rooms are twin rooms. Twin beds that can be pushed together to make king size beds for couples.
There are a further self-contained apartment and two farmhouse rooms. Guests share a heated swimming pool with breathtaking mountain views, gardens, and a children’s play area. The Cortijo is surrounded by olive groves which you are free to wander through.
There are no fixed timetables, Cortijo Los Lobos will fit in your riding hours to suit your arrival and departure times, times will also vary according to how hot it is. A typical day in hotter weather would be a 2-hour ride in the morning with the rest of the day to relax by the pool, go for a walk, or whatever you would like to do.
Weather and riding ability permitting, we may do a picnic evening ride on one of the days, giving you a longer ride with your evening meal on the mountain, enjoying the views while the sun goes down. Breakfast picnic rides may also be possible. Cortijo Los Lobos would aim to fit in a ride on either your arrival or departure day, giving you 7 days with riding.
Horses are by nature gentle, sensitive creatures. Over centuries, man has often abused and misunderstood these wonderful animals. Cortijo Los Lobos believe that horses deserve to be treated with kindness and understanding at all times. Cortijo Los Lobos' horses all live together in a family group and they try to make their living conditions as natural as possible.
The horses' happiness is very important to Cortijo Los Lobos and their comfort and well being is Cortijo Los Lobos' priority. They train using positive reinforcement and ride without bits or shoes. Cortijo Los Lobos do not agree with the use of whips or force of any kind.
Please note: if you are only interested in riding hard and fast and your enjoyment comes before the horses well being, Cortijo Los Lobos is not the place for you. Their ethos is definitely happy hacking at walking pace with the emphasis on enjoying the scenery.
Cortijo Los Lobos tend to concentrate on hacking as it is the perfect way to be at one with your horse and the surrounding countryside and wildlife. Cortijo Los Lobos are happy to teach beginners, but prefer to teach whilst out riding in the country side. This is more enjoyable for both horse and rider.
If you have never been on a horse before, don’t worry, Cortijo Los Lobos can walk along with you to help you gain your confidence and learn the basics. The horses are very good with beginners and you probably won’t need any help.
Five of Cortijo Los Lobos’ horses were born here and are very lucky to have never experienced pain or negative treatment. This is reflected in their gentle but independent characters. Many of the horses have been rescued from sad past lives, but with kindness and patience they have now overcome their past fears and traumas and it is heartwarming to witness them learning to trust again.
Cortijo Los Lobos like their guests to feel that the horse they allocate you at the start of your holiday is yours for your stay if that’s what you want. You are welcome to care for them, grooming, tacking up etc. if you would like to.
You may request your choice of the horse before your stay if you have fallen in love with one in particular. However, this must be appropriate for your riding ability and Cortijo Los Lobos can’t guarantee that someone else hasn’t already chosen your favorite!
