We recommend this place to all families, whether you are horse riders or not

“We spent an amazing, relaxing, Christmas week with June and Clive at Cortijo Los Lobos. Our apartment was perfect for a family with three kids. The kids loved playing on the swing and train and visiting the sheep. The horses were friendly and obviously very loved. June and Clive have a great philosophy in which the needs of the horses are considered very carefully and they are excellent at maintaining a safe, fun, riding environment for the whole family. The area is absolutely beautiful with sunsets to take your breath away and it is an easy drive to Malaga, Granada or a number of other great local sites. Grocery options nearby are great and we had everything we needed. We would definitely come again and recommend this place to all families, whether you are horse riders or not.”

the spirit of Cortijo Los Lobos will sustain me when I go back to reality

"A very special place, the accommodation is full of Spanish character but with all the conveniences of home. Everywhere are inviting places to sit and enjoy the beauty and tranquility of this gorgeous spot. If you have come to ride you can rest assured that you won’t find a riding establishment in Spain with better cared for horses, everything is done with consideration of their needs. There are rescued and retired horses in sanctuary here, and by riding you are contributing to their upkeep. Clive and June are the most considerate hosts who will do their utmost to provide the perfect stay. If you are catered for, the food is delicious, made with love from fresh ingredients, and tailored to multiple requirements. I’ve never felt as relaxed, the spirit of Cortijo Los Lobos will sustain me when I go back to reality!"

Cortijo Los lobos is a beautiful and relaxing retreat with amazing trekking
"The views are stunning and the accommodation and facilities are second to none. June and Clive are welcoming hosts who really make you feel at home. Most importantly the horses are loved and cared for, they are always the number one priority and they enjoy a level of care that is rare in equestrian businesses."
- Gail P.
We choose this place due to it's kind ethos and we were not disappointed
"June and Clive are excellent hosts and made us feel very welcome, our apartment was lovely, so lovely we slept for 11hrs one night, it was so peaceful 💕 The cortijo gardens are beautiful and give a real sense of calm, the pool area has great views of the mountains and countryside. We had two rides in walk, on trails through small hamlets, forests and olive trees, the scenery and calm horses are idyllic. We choose this place due to it's kind ethos, barefoot & bitless and we were not disappointed, the horses, dogs, cats, sheep & chickens are very well cared for and loved 💕 The amazing food, hospitality and beautiful surroundings were just the icing on the cake."

A perfect gem for any animal lover or anyone with anxiety. Just breath in and relax!

"Just returned from our second stay here. On both occasions we have stayed for a week with our animal loving, extremely anxious, autistic daughter. It is so peaceful and beautiful. She loves this place and relaxes here like nowhere else.

We stayed this time in El Establo and the first time in El Granero and we have found them equally as comfortable and charming. The private courtyards and the outside barbecues make it so easy to spend the majority of our time outside, enjoying the scenery, the weather and the many pets. The pool was once again quiet, private and very refreshing.

As before we rode almost every day on June and Clive's gentle ponies/horses and thoroughly enjoyed our quiet trips up and down the mountain and through the olive groves. The love and care that is shown to these beautiful animals only added to our enjoyment. If you want to go tearing along then this is not the place for you but if you are a genuine animal lover then you couldn't find a better place to ride. Because of our daughters needs we choose to self cater and as this is old Spain the locals still keep siesta hours and the shops are largely untouched by British supermarket habits so shopping has to be planned but we have always managed to communicate and to find sufficient food to feed her to her satisfaction.

The therapeutic nature of this holiday for our daughter cannot be emphasised enough and I would thoroughly recommend it for anyone with any anxiety issues, or indeed anyone in need of a holiday, as it is just such a relaxing environment. We will certainly be returning again.”

We have never revisited anywhere twice let alone three times!

“We recently visited Cortijo for our 3rd time and again it did not disappoint. The relaxed atmosphere, beautiful setting and high quality accommodation are the reason we keep coming back to holiday in this special place. Our daughter was able ride sometimes twice a day and is always inspired by June's knowledge and genuine care for the horses. In all our years of going away on holiday we have never revisited anywhere twice let alone three times! Thank you to June and Clive for a lovely holiday.”

So relaxing and balancing that it simply fixes me every time

“Cortijo los lobos has became a retreat for us where we really can get rid of the feeling of stress and rush. This was our third family holiday at the beautiful farm in Villanueva del Trabuco. The surroundings are magnificient. It is peaceful and quiet but still only a one hour drive to Malaga, and many other places to visit. The apartments as well as all the patios and the pool area are absolutely lovely. In the atmosphere there is in my opinion something magical. Riding with the calm and well-kept horses either early in the morning or later in the evening - when it is not too hot - and admiring the spectacular mountain views at the same time is amazing. It is maybe the incredible beauty of the place together with all the lovely animals that makes it an unbeaten combo. The effect is so relaxing and balancing that it simply fixes me every time.

The owners are great hosts and make you feel very comfortable there. They are fabulous cooks too; we had a Greek, Italian, Mexican and Spanish nights with many delicious meals served with very good wines. You can cook your own meals if you wish, the apartments have all the kitchen utensils needed. This time we stayed in the farmhouse that was charming. The two bedrooms were in their own floors and had their own bathrooms. There was a big living room with a beautiful fireplace. Our daughter had a friend with her and the girls got to learn how to ride with just a neck rope. They swam for hours and enjoyed the sun and pleasant companion of the animals. For us it is very important that the animals are well-kept. At this farm they are really taken care of with a big heart. As are all the guests too.”

"Although I liked the idea of riding bitless, I had never done so before and was a bit nervous but it was fantastic. The horses are so relaxed, it's amazing. Gorgeous cortijo and surroundings with lovely welcoming and accommodating owners!"

cosy accommodation with a family feel

“My friend and I had a 5 day holiday at the Cortijo Los Lobos and are so pleased to have chosen it. Our reason for deciding this particular cortijo was the ethical horsemanship, June & Clive did not disappoint, June explained that the horses are only ridden in walk now for several genuine reasons and to put the horses health and happiness first. We completely understood this, admire their ethos and respect their decision. We very much enjoyed the rides, on well behaved, bitless horses, through the tranquil countryside. We also walked as leads for an American family with young children, which was alot of fun.

The cortijo itself is beautifully maintained and offers cosy accommodation with a family feel, but equally, if you want some solitude, it is not hard to find a quiet spot. Our apartment was well equipped with very thick walls which kept any noise or light out, we slept for 11hrs one night! June is a fantastic cook and we dined with other guests in the evenings, we met some lovely people, June also catered for my dairy free diet deliciously. All in all this was a fantastic holiday, it was value for money and it was very relaxing. I feel refreshed and will definitely be returning for more.”

It's a gem of a place run by an amazing couple

"Having just returned from my 2nd time here this year, I would highly recommend it to anyone who cares deeply about animals. June and Clive are deeply committed to the lives of their animals. I have just completed a barefoot trimming course which was amazing and so informative. Both of the professional trimmers concluded that the hooves of all the horses are in excellent condition and have been well maintained by Clive and June. The horses are all so well looked after, June and Clive do an amazing job and work tirelessly to ensure that all of their animals are well cared for.

The riding is at a time and a pace to suit the horses, there is no riding in the hottest part of the day which would be so unfair on the horses. The rides are amazing as is the scenery. I can't recommend it enough, but if it's cantering around the countryside that's wanted then this isn't the place, the welfare of the horses is priority, as it should be. The welcome and hospitality received is fantastic, the food and the accommodation is 5 star. I really can't rate it highly enough."

The evening meals June cooked were delicious

“We are a couple in our 70’s who no longer ride but that did not exclude us from enjoying this magical place. So many good things have been said in previous comments but one thing that may not have been said is the dedication and love that June and Clive, the owners have for this wonderful home and their animals. They have strived for 20 years to make it what it is today. The accommodation is really lovely, well thought out with huge attention to detail in this characterful finca. The evening meals June cooked were delicious, beds comfy, views beautiful and everywhere spotlessly clean. June has also written a book about her time there which is worth reading ‘No time for a Siesta’ by June Wolfe. When our batteries need recharging again we will return. So thank you June and Clive."

We visited Cortijo Los Lobos for the third year in a row

"Our daughters got to ride through the mountains and olive groves each day, and we got to relax by the pool in the afternoon. We have also enjoyed June and Clive's home cooked food - the paella and evening ride with picnic supper to a stunning location overlooking the countryside. We also had a wonderful trip to Granada and the Alhambra to provide a bit of variety. A huge thank you to June and Clive for all the hard work and for creating what is, for us, a little slice of paradise. The girls love the assortment of well behaved pets and horses. Many of the horses have been rescued from poor treatment elsewhere. June and Clive's great care for all of their animals is clearly evident. We wish them a good year and are already looking forward to visiting again.”

When an American comes back to stay at the same place in Spain three times, it must be special.

"This lovely small resort nestled into the hills north of Malaga keeps me returning. The secret of Cortijo los Lobos’ appeal is its fabulous setting and its charming hosts.

They have thought of everything to provide a relaxing and contented holiday. Each accommodation has a convenient kitchen - or you can have your meals provided. The first time I stayed, I enjoyed full catering, and June and Clive are wonderful cooks. Her paella nights are legendary. The tranquil countryside around this lovely inn is a great place to enjoy long walks. Her horses are willing and gentle for any rider. She has rescued many from abusive or neglectful situations and they give back to their riders the kindness and understanding they have received. The horseback or walking rambles through the hills are truly restorative.

Spring is my favorite time to come now, because of June’s garden and the wildflowers, but a January visit provided ample sunshine - a great break from a wet, gloomy winter. Even when there are showers, the changing dramatic cloud-scapes are breath-taking. I will return. Cortijo Los Lobos also makes a wonderful base for day trips. I especially recommend a circle drive to Zahara de la Sierra and Ronda in the spring. Antequera and Granada are near, as is the Mediterranean. Writing this has made me start thinking about my next visit... hmmm."
