We discovered the real Spain on horseback


Holiday company: Cortijo Los Lobos

We have never revisited a place twice until we found Cortijo Los Lobos. We are a family of three. One adult who could ride well, one adult who thought he could ride and a 10-year-old who had never ridden. We wanted to discover the real inland Spain and we found it. The business Clive and June Woolf have is fantastic.

On a hill miles away from neighbours and with glorious scenery 360 degrees. They live surrounded by olive groves in the main farmhouse with their lovely teenagers, and the guests have the small cottage with a lovely courtyard. On arrival we found a very welcome welcome pack and soon found out where the best supermarket was. The outdoor space here is fantastic, the heated pool is totally secluded with uninterrupted views of the nearby mountains. I cannot describe in words how fantastic it is to lie on your sunbed looking at the scenery in total silence.

The riding is almost all offroad and very beautiful. The horses are a real mix and suit every size and ability. June is great with the children lead reining them if they wanted and always encouraging them to have a go. We found the two weeks suited us so well we booked again and last year had another great fortnight. The highlights for us are becoming friends with the Woolfs and enjoying the great atmosphere and challenges living in Spain brings. We loved the fact June's lovely daughter Elizabeth babysat for us when we went on a night ride to the local village restaurant. It was very spooky coming home by the light of the moon only. The barbecue ride we did for my husband's 40th was perfect and well worth a go. All in all a perfect holiday for everyone.

Don't expect galloping all day or five-star accomodation but do expect and receive great hosts, superb scenery, fantastic rides and horses and a lovely cosy cottage which had all you need to enjoy a blissful fortnight in the real Spain, We will definately be coming back next year.
