This video gives you an idea where you will be going Our Hacienda Holiday

This is a perfect location for a retreat and we are running several holidays here. All to give women the chance to get away from it all to walk, connect and revive.

This idyllic Hacienda 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 Hacienda Molino Nuevo is set in stunning landscape with wonderful walks all around. The last WalkingWomen group said they loved the walking in the National Park and would have liked more as it was so off the beaten track. There will be walks of 3-4 hours each day.

The Hacienda has a terrace with outstanding views and will give you a real taste of this lesser known, tranquil part of Spain. If you are in need of a true break this is the perfect place to relax in peace. The pool is lovely for an early morning or evening dip between walks, coaching sessions and yoga. And there is always time to read or simply sit and stare.

This is the ideal starting point to visit the nearby city of Seville or a little further off Malaga, or perhaps spend time on the beaches of the Costa del Sol or Costa Tropical. We can help if you would like to extend your holiday.




This itinerary gives you great walks but also coaching in both groups and individually. It is to give you the time to focus on you whilst you walk, talk and have options for other nourishing activities.

Each day starts with breakfast together between 8 and 9.30am.

Each evening you will eat your evening meal together around 19.30.

You may want to start the day with a solitary walk around the Hacienda or take a dip in the hotel pool. Or watch the sunrise over the hills.

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 and give you the best of this part of Andalucia.
