Many women have told us they would like holidays to get away from it all to totally switch off and relax and revive. We found Finca Vegana which is just the place. Only just over an hour from Seville and easy to reach but still away from it all. We stay at a Finca with a swimming pool, lovely walking and the option to do daily yoga sessions. This is a little oasis in an undiscovered part of Spain. If you want to extend in Malaga we have 25% discount at our partner hotel in Malaga - the Mariposa run by two sisters. Let us know and we can help book.

Our holidays focus on Andalucia as we have connections here and we love to share our favourite places. This idyllic Finca is located in a quiet valley between Zahara de la Sierra, one of the most beautiful white villages in Spain and the traditional village of Algodonales. The white villages are a feature of this area and you will have the chance to walk and experience the simple,slow life of southern Spain.
The Finca is a peaceful place to relax and the pool is lovely for an early morning or evening dip between walks and yoga. And there is always time to read or simply sit and stare.
We will also visit the beautiful town of Ronda only 1 hour away to experience more of the area and maybe try some tapas.
The Finca is the ideal starting point to visit the nearby city of Seville or a little further off Malaga , or perhaps spend time on the beach’s of the Costa del Sol or Costa Tropical. We can help if you would like to extend your holiday.
The itinerary may change depending on the weather but you can expect a lovely relaxed programme to explore this part of southern Spain
Each day starts with breakfast together between 8 and 9.30am
It is a short walk to a river for those who may want a start the day with a dip. It is deep enough for refreshing dips but not a swimming river. There is the pool for swimming. There is also a nearby Lake which we will visit for a walk and swim one day.
There is the option to do yoga every day and the time will be fixed with the yoga teacher on the first day. We expect early evening sessions before dinner.
Walks will be varied to show you the area
Day 1 – arrival and settle in to the Finca. Time for a swim and dinner together.
Day 2 – La Breña Walk – a fascinating 3 hour walk through a mature Mediterranean forest. We will walk through the forest where deers roam to reach a platform where you have great views over the sierra.
Day 3 – Arroyo de Bocaleones – a 3 hour walk following the river. We walk to a magnificent canyon ‘ La Garganta Verde’ within the Sierra de Grazalema National Park. This area is a biodiversity hot spot and your local guide will interpret its ecological and historical value. We will continue down the river into a canyon within a Biosphere Reserve where we will find fairy pools with clear blue waters to dip in.
Day 4 – An optional day trip to visit the nearby historic town of Ronda
Day 5 – There will be an option of a longer walk in the National Park or a shorter walk from our Finca .
Day 6 – Llanos del Rabel – a 3hour flat walk into the heart of the national park. Our aim is to reach El Pinsapar, a forest that has been here since the ice age. This is a unique forest on the world and your guide will explain its significance. This is one of the most protected areas in Spain and quite undiscovered. It is possible to see deer, mountain goats ( we love these !) and various different birds.
Day 7 – Departure for flights from 14.00
