Spanish holiday heaven for horse riders

2nd September 2010 Print
Barceló La Bobadilla

The romantic five star Barceló La Bobadilla, built to resemble an Andalusian palace and set within 350 hectares of forest land is a true horse rider’s paradise.

Trekking through the Andalusian countryside, guests can discover rolling hills, local deer, birdlife and valleys covered in wild flowers, aromatic herbs, olive trees, almond trees and Holm oaks.

The paddocks are home to Andalusian horses renowned throughout Spain as the Pure Spanish Horse. They are strongly built, compact yet elegant, with long, thick manes and tails. Until the 1900’s they were traditionally used as war horses but now they are ideal for enjoyable trekking.

This luxurious retreat boasts 70 exquisite rooms and suites all unique in layout and design with enchanting views over the forest. Situated in between Malaga and Granada, the hotel is also home to a 1500m2 pool, fitness club, tennis courts, adventure sports and some of the finest cuisine in southern Spain including the award winning La Finca restaurant.

Stay at the Barcelo La Bobadilla from £142 B&B per room per night (including VAT) and enjoy exploring the Andalusian countryside on horse back for an extra £10 + VAT per hour or £25 per hour with a guide.
