“A little piece of heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014 via mobile

Well what can I say, this was a perfect holiday for me and my daughter, she had horses, swimming and puppies, I had a little girl who cried when we left because she didn't want to go home, (that itself is a review on its own) if you book this holiday don't look at it as just booking a hotel, look at it as arranging to stay with friends because that's how you'll feel when you leave, I'll guarantee you'll enjoy as much as we did.

We spent a week at Uribe and felt welcome and at home from the moment of our arrival. The ability of the small team to meet the needs of different levels of rider was impressive. Everyone at the Cortijo works so hard to make guests' visits special. The atmosphere is calm, relaxed and professional. The accommodation is high quality (shame it was too hot for the fluffy dressing gown!) and the environment kept spotlessly clean - even the stable yard is spotless. And the horses are also loved and cared for to very high standards.

The hacking was fun and for me challenging as I never had chance to canter long distances across fields and through olive groves. I have always dreamed of cantering through stubble fields and did it lots both on the flat and uphill. It was awesome. The picnic and bar rides were excellent and I will never forget riding to the top of a hill to see the sun set with a glass of wine in hand and then riding back in the dark.

And then there were the lessons. I so wanted to show Antonio I had improved my lateral work and thanks to Princesca I think I managed this in the last session. Thanks for letting me ride the beautiful Princesca - I only wish I could have bought her home with me. She is very special. And then of course there was the enthusiastic Flamenca; steady Misty and fabulous Star. All great to ride.

Finally, it was great to meet people from all over the world and to chat and drink wine together; and to cool off in the pool after a long hot ride. Thanks to Jorge, Jose Maria, Sonia and Sonia, Antonio (the very patient trainer!) Adrian, Paul and Chris. And if course the puppies. Hope I haven't missed anyone. :)

We spent a few days at Cortijo and had an amazing time. The staff were brilliant and the place is just beautiful. The horses were just amazing. My husband had only ridden 5 times before we went and by the end of our three day stay he was cantering along next to me through the olive trees. So from inexperienced rider to experienced rider there is something for everyone. As soon as we returned home we have starting looking at how soon we can go back!

We spent three nights in Cortijo Uribe and enjoyed it so much. We arrived late but were warmly welcomed by Chris, Paul, Nikki and Adrian. The atmosphere is relaxed, informal and friendly. Waking to the singing of birds and the occasional neigh of the horses was lovely. Our room in the Tower was idyllic - and as it’s on three levels ‘room’ is really doing it a disservice. The views were spectacular. On the morning hack, though olive groves and past fields of sunflowers, we rode the best behaved horses who were incredibly responsive. My mount Flamenca was great fun. This was followed by lunch and then a couple of hours lounging by the pool. The late afternoon lesson with Antonio was challenging and I loved it! I learnt much more than I’d anticipated too. The horse I rode, Fin, was super – a 4 year old Andalucian. Evening dinner outside watching the puppies playing and the birds flying about was heavenly. A good chat and sumptuous food capped a great day. Day two was even better as we relaxed into the weekend. Although I didn’t want to leave, the change of pace and the different nature of this weekend, left me feeling that I’d been away from my normal life for much longer. We’re very much looking forward to returning.
We took the flight from Cork and then a 50 minute drive to Cortijo Uribe – short hop to a tremendous break.

If you want to combine great hacks with very professional lessons this is the place! I stayed for three nights and am already planning when to come back - and next time I will stay a week. The riding is great - fantastic hacks in beautiful nature and really good lessons. Christine and Paul, who owns and runs Cortijo Uribe are two fantastic persons - taking care of both guest, horses, staff and homeless dogs in a very warm and caring way. Accomodation was also very good as well as the tasty spanish food! I will definitely return!

I had a wonderful holiday at Cortijo Uribe. Nice people and good horses, very high standard on everything. The mix of dressage lessons and hacks was very good. The rooms were great and the staff in the kitchen served a lot of really good spanish food . Thank you for an really nice week.
