3-4 hours on horseback per day, galopping through the ocean and even swimming with horses - here you will get even more than you expect! It is so lovely to see the people living in harmony with nature and especially the animals.

The riding, the yoga, the food (thanks Victoria!) - I loved everything about this trip! Thank you so much for this wonderful experience, Paco, Victoria and Sandra! I will definitely come back :) Kristina

"Idyllic stay with Aventuras del Sur"

The setting in the farm house in the hills above the Atlantic is idyllic. A Beautiful garden to relax in around the house with views of the beach and the vivid blue ocean below. It is a peaceful and welcoming space. The family who run the retreat are warm, friendly and accommodating and go out of their way to ensure that your needs are met. Victoria created delicious meals eaten in the garden and her lemon cake is extraordinary.

Sandra is there involved in a variety of activities ensuring all goes well but is a particularly inspiring yoga teacher offering deeply restful and relaxing sessions alongside Sascha who is the main yoga teacher. He is hugely experienced and an incredible teacher his gentle adjustments to postures were perfectly executed. As one person in the group said he seems to understand your body better than you do.

Riding along the stunning beaches with Paco and Nicola and through the incredible fir tree forests was a feast for the senses of colours and smells. I hadn't ridden for over 15 years but there is something for all levels. To see the horses released into the national park at the end of the ride adds to the scene.

An incredible week I will definitely come again it was amazing

"Amazing Andalusian familiy experience!"

My stay was a dream! I came back full of energy and good memories. Hosting family is welcoming, kind and honest. Horses are well treated and calm. Food is home made and generous. Place has an ocean view and Andalusian sun shine. I will definitely come back!

"First impressions matter"

Sascha was an excellent yoga instructor. He evaluated each student and explained the moves and techniques in detail. When no one showed up for meditation he incorporated it into the yoga class.

It has been a wonderful week, Sandra, Victoria, Paco, Lydia, the whole Family is so caring and friendly and made the group feel at home in their house.

Yoga and meditation in the morning for me was the best start in the day and the perfect balance for the riding tours. Thank you Sascha and Sandra, I’m totally reeeelaxed now.

The riding tours in this beautiful landscape where gorgeous. Thank you Paco! What a special experience! It was different everyday, relaxed walking in the mountains with stunning views, galloping on the beach, swimming with the horses, ....

The Food was amazing. Fish, seafood, vegetarian, cooked with love and mastery. Delicious, thank you Victoria.

And Lydia, thank you for the music!

I am definitively coming back.

"Beautiful, hearth warming adventure"

The horses were so balanced, reliable and with lots of spirit. Very nice to watch them go back to the herd in Freedom after the ride. The surroundings are Beautiful, every ride was different. Thank you Pacco! Victoria’s home cooked food is really yammie, fresh and something to look forward to everyday. She endlessly spoils you and is the smile of the house.

My room was made for a princes, so Beautiful..

And last but not least the yoga and meditation sessions. Lots of different elements of yoga were discussed and practised. Sometimes confronting, other times relaxing, but always inspiering and with personal attention. Thank you Sandra and Sascha!

Warm huggs for this family and all the animals.

"Will be back"

Two others were there for second time, this tells you everything. They are welcoming and clearly passionate about what they do. The horses are so balanced and cared for. They are free to wander as a herd when not working. Even two horses without riders joined us for entire ride one day of thier own choice.

You can arrange beginner rides if new rider. I am intermediate to advanced rider and agree this is best for main horse program. We did gallop 4 of 5 days! Safety is priority of course. My horse pacho was not the fast one but he has lots of heart and will do his best for you. I hope to ride my short tailed black horse next year also.

I cant wait to go back!

"The best retreat I had so far! "

Wellcoming feeling from the hosts, spaciousness of the accommodation in the way that provided opportunity for being alone as well as hanging out with people. Natural park is huge, there is plenty to see, hiking tours and horse riding tours cover really good part. Yoga & meditation are mostly tailored depending on the group likes and experience. Victoria was cooking super delicious food every day, and we could all feel very welcome

It is very like famile. I felt like home. Lots of kindness. Maybe a little more English, but it didn’t really matter. They were experts in finding the right horse for you.

"Best Day Ever....Every Day! "

What a privilege to have spent 5 days with Sandra and her family.

This is a family business and the family are wonderful hosts. You live on their farm and enjoy a truly authentic Andalusian life whilst riding in the most amazing countryside and on the beaches during the day. We then spent the afternoons on the beaches sunbathing then returned for evening yoga and dinner. Each day was wonderful. You won’t want to leave!

"Experience of a lifetime! "

From the moment I arrived and saw the location with the craggy mountains and horses and cows walking freely around, to being greeted by Sandra and Victoria in their family home as if old friends, I could tell it was going to be a very warm, homely and natural experience. At first I wasn’t sure if the yoga would be challenging enough for me, but actually it complimented the riding perfectly as the restorative yoga and stretching meant you never felt sore once from riding 5 days. Sandra was a beautiful instructor and throughout the week we tried a few differently styles of yoga such as flow yoga, which was more active so I was very satisfied by the end and felt wonderful from the combination of meditation,

Yoga and riding. The horse rides were incredible with every day providing something new and exciting from climbing up and over the steep mountains with fantastic views, to galloping along the beach and then finally swimming with the horses in the ocean. The horses were in really good condition, well looked after and very well behaved, which I was so happy to see. I think I was also very lucky with the group that I shared the experience with, because although the ages were varied we all got on very well and enjoyed spending time together during the planned activities and also in our own time going to the beach. We were all very flexible, which was important for going with the flow of the daily activities if things needed to be changed. I would highly recommend this experience

The yoga and meditation were excellent and were conducted in a calm and relaxed manner. Sandra has a great personality and her yoga classes are so interesting and varied. She is very flexible with the times as some days we had to go horse riding earlier due to it being so hot.

Also it is a family run business and I felt so at home in Analdulcia. Victoria's home cooking is out of this world. Paco and Victor manage the horse riding and Sandra will answer any of your questions with a smile!

"A little piece of heaven here on earth "

Aventuras del Sur is an oasis of peace, beauty and wsrm affection set in the stunning andalusian countryside. The yoga and meditation had a profoundly calming effect and I felt so much more supple by the end of the week. Paco is a horseman second to none and all of his horses are well looked after, keen in the gallop and soft in the mouth. And the food! I've never eaten so well from the fresh fruit, cheese tomatoes and cereal, the picnic lunches with salad from the kitchen garden and each night a beautiful andalusian meal from paella to tuna steaks, beef casserole and calamari with plentiful local wine and beer. We were spoiled!

"Amazing holiday"

This holiday was wonderful, fabulous hosts in a beautiful environment, the national park is just stunning. Paco and his horses are so wonderful, seeing the horses live freely and being part of the natural environment and then saddling up and enjoying exploring the mountains and coastline is very special.

The yoga is great, coupled with meditation and incorporating lots of variation, it really met my needs.

Topping it all off with Victoria's wonderful cooking, I had a really fabulous time.

"An adventure for the soul"

I chose the horse back riding adventure and highly recommend this option. Paco, the horse whisperer, carefully matches you with your horse for the week. I loved my horse Trueno! The rides are 4-4/12 hours daily and Paco takes you all on the most beautiful treks.

The location and accommodations are perfect. There is a beautiful garden and a stunning view of Morocco. The beach is a 5 minute drive down the road. Tarifa is close by and is quite enjoyable. The horses and cattle roam free and it’s fun to have them show up and say hello.

Yoga and meditation are optional. There were 1-2 yoga classes available each day. There is a great amount of stretching and I think I am now 2 inches taller now 😊

The meals are made with love by Victoria and are so very delicious!! Her paella was amazing!! There is an abundance of food and warmth.

"Amazing horseriding holidays "

The most perfect spot to do one week of horseriding. The finca is at a wonderful location. The trails you ride bring you to even more beautiful places. The horses you ride are well trained and to top it off: breakfast, pick-nic and dinner: finger licking good

Louise Taylor

I simply can't recommend this retreat highly enough! It was like stepping into my very own Spanish family! The yoga was amazing! The yoga instructors have so much competence and experience that they are able to adapt the sessions to the level of their clients. Our group had a lot of exprience so we were able to explore a lot of different yoga styles and meditation techniques. I came away with newly acquired knowledge and inspiration for my practice at home. The riding couldn't have been better! The day rides aren't for beginners or the faint hearted! Everyday brought new adventures and challenges! Galopping on the beach at full throttle was the stuff dreams are made of! Victoria was our Spanish mum for the week taking care of all our needs and providing us with traditional spanish soul food, which was much needed after the arduous days in the saddle and on our mats! I will definitley be going back! YA echo de menos vosotros. Abrazos x

"Absolute Paradise"

We wanted to book an all-inclusive retreat and got so much more than we even expected. The meditation/yoga classes are super professional and Sandra and Sascha explained a lot about the effects on both body and mind. (Their equipment is really cool, too!)

The riding on the beach is really amazing. Paco is the sweetest guide ever and adjusts the courses and speed according to the group's abilities. If you speak some Spanish he'll tell you about the beautiful nature around.

The cherry on top however is Victoria's cooking. Fresh vegetables from her garden and lots and lots of Andalusian flavor. Even if you have any allergies, she'll do everything she can to accomodate and make an extra portion without whatever you can't have. We usually topped it off with one of the local wines they always keep plenty of in their kitchen.

Overall, if you love hanging around beautiful souls, lots of animals and have an amazing time far away from your daily worries, this is the place for you to go.

I liked the attention given to each guest to make sure that needs were met and that I was having a good experience. I loved the location and the retreat center. This retreat has a new name in my mind: Rancho de gran Corazon.

"Fantastic location, food, hosts, yoga and horse riding."

Loved every minute of the break in the most relaxed tranquil beautiful scenery. Lovely family with beautiful food and welcoming home. The horse riding was absolutely fantastic on the beach and through the mountains. Scenery was breathtaking. Horses were forward going and very safe. Brilliant little hidden treasure away from the stress of life.

"Fantastisch! "

Het was fantastisch!

Een week boven alle verwachting, ontzettende lieve mensen, prachtige paarden en andere dieren.

Mensen met veel hart voor hun business, dieren en de gasten.

Alles in een zeer ontspannen sfeer, waardoor je je erg snel op je gemak voelt.

De omgeving is prachtig en de routes te paard adembenemend en bijzonder!

Zelfs met de paarden in zee gezwommen en de combinatie met de yoga sessies is erg prettig.

Het eten heerlijk en met liefde en zorg bereid!

Kortom... Ik kom graag hier weer terug en kan iedereen deze reis aanbevelen! 👌☺️🐴

"Cours de Yoga"

Marcel a été notre professeur pendant notre séjour, c'était plus que des cours de yoga traditionnels, on a apprit beaucoup sur le corps, la santé, la méditation. Il nous a partagé ses connaissances avec beaucoup de générosité et il a répondu à toutes nos questions. Nous repartons encore plus passionnées. La famille est très acceuillante, Victoria cuisine très bien, tout le monde à le sourire, l'ambiance est relax, c'est propre. On a fait fait de l'équitation sur la plage au coucher de soleil avec Paco le papa. L'emplacement est idéal, dans la nature mais a 5kms des restaurants, bars de plage. Merci à tous. Sophie et Alyssa

"Extraordinario, lo recomiendo un 100×100"

La práctica de yoga con Sacha y Sandra. Sacha te explica principios básicos como la respiración y corrige tus posturas con gran sabiduría. Sandra con su yoga restaurativo lleno de amabilidad y respeto hacia uno mismo.

También las lecciones de meditación guiada importantisimas para la práctica. Me enseñaron un montón y me ayudaron mucho para la relajación.

Los paseos a caballo. Caballos preciosos guiados por Paco por senderos maravillosos, despuntando el día o al atardecer por playas de ensueño.

Los desayunos y comidas de Victoria, siempre atenta a cualquier cosa que necesitas.

Son una familia maravillosa.

Una experiencia que no olvidaré. Me siento muy agradecida.

"Amazing place!!!"

Everything-the meditation, yoga ,horsebackriding & the food was perfect and in balance. The main reason for this, is that you stay with a family that runs it all by themselves and all on their own premises.

Everyday is a different day because of the variety in horsetrails and variety in yoga. I was afraid I might not be able to walk because of muscle pain but although I feel a good stretch, no muscle pain at all!

Nothing but love and respect for this family and their so friendly horses, dogs and cats.

You can definitely find me here again a next time! Namaste..

"Think of honey, sun and the smell of a rose: That's it!"

The experience at Aventuras del Sur is very authentic, caring and warm. The hosts, Paco, Victoria and Sandra are amazing people who know their country, their horses, their food ... The riding paths are well selected and provide you with stunning views. The beach gallops will leave you breathless. The morning yoga sessions are generally more calm in order to give your body balance and relaxation after many riding hours (restorative yoga, although you can get power yoga on request). We had a very cool group dynamic coming up during the week, but that of course depends on the group and what you make out of it.

Die Yoga Klassen werden individuell mit der Gruppe abgestimmt und sind für jedes Level geeignet.

"What a wonderful week"

This week was absolutely amazing!!I The combination from horsebackriding and Yoga is just perfekt, and I enjoyed every minute. Sandra and Sasha are very ambitioned Yogateachers with different styles, and they love what they do. Just the mix of both of them is fantastic.

The meditation in the morning at 7 a clock, when it is still dark is very unique .

And the horsebackriding was so wonderful. The horses are all well trainend, well tempered and they move like goats sometimes in the mountains.

We did every day 3 to 4 hours rides in the mountains or at the beach , and Paco was a wonderful and funny guide, and you feel how much he loves the horses and the country.

And even after 4 hours riding we had another yogalesson , and so I hadnt a minute pain from riding!!!

The food , cooked by Victoria was fresh and so tasty an d yummy , that I eat a lot, much more then at home.

The appartment are so cosy and you have a wonderful view over the ocean. The enviroment is beautiful, it is also wonderful for hiking, all about are free animals, and you get a small glimpse of a typical andalusien live.

The place is so perfect for calming down and relaxcing, and it wont be the last time ill be there.

We were just 3 women, wich made it even more worthed, but even with some more it is all very familiar

What a wonderful experince!!!! Thank you for everything.!!!

"Der perfekte Urlaub für Körper und Seele"

Die Familie Trujillo schafft es mit viel Liebe und Begeisterung eine perfekte Urlaubswoche zu gestalten. Der kleine Ort Betis ist einen Katzensprung entfernt von der Küste zwischen Tarifa und Bolonia. Es bietet sich ein traumhafter Ausblick über das Hinterland in ruhiger Umgebung. Die Yoga- und Meditationsstunden werden liebevoll nd individuell von Sascha und Sandra gestaltet. Mit viel Feuer, Erfahrung und Gelassenheit sind die Ausritte unvergesslich. Alle Pferde bieten eine einmalige Trittsicherheit, einzigartige Charaktere und einen besonders weichen Gang. Das kleine Gebirge und den Strand meistern sie wie Bergziegen und sind auch einem Galopp nicht abgeneigt. Man sollte sich im Gelände und in allen Gangarten sicher fühlen und 4 Stunden Ritte durchhalten können. Purer Genuß! Die Wandertouren mit Sascha habe ich sehr genossen. Vorbei an Kletterwänden, hinauf zu Felsen von denen aus Gänsegeier beobachtet werden können und hinunter zum Strandspaziergang - so vielfältig. Dabei hat Saschas ruhige Art und seinen ortskundigen Erklärungen das Erlebnis noch bereichert. Nicht unerwähnt lassen möchte ich die modern, sauber und geschmackvoll eingerichteten kleinen Appartements und dass tolle Essen von Victoria. Man wird rundherum verwöhnt.

Ich überlege jetzt schon, wann ich das nächste Mal hinreisen kann...

In einer traumhaften Lage fand ich unglaublich herzliche Menschen, liebe Tier und absolute Ruhe. Die Yogasessions haben mich sehr weit nach vorn gebracht und ich habe in einer Woche mehr gelernt, als in einem halben Jahr. Ich möchte unbedingt wieder kommen.

"Amazing Retreat at an awesome place!"

Cannot describe in words how my experience was! Something changed in me cause Sandra & Sascha were such awesome Yoga and Meditation teachers with a great view on life! They made me take a different view on things, which helps me a lot and hope will stay when I am back home. The food Victoria cooked was really delicious and the place so peacefull with great nature around! That made the hiking trips with Sascha to a special event. Thanks!
