“Mountain trails”
Review of Los Olivillos

Los Olivillos
Reviewed 5 August 2014

I sent my wife off here for a half day ride out. I dropped her off at a small picturesque abandoned hydro power station and they drove down their mountain trail to pick her up. When I came back that afternoon to collect her, she couldn't get the smile off her face, and regaled us with tales of beautiful Spanish horses and cantering along mountain ridges.
Apparently a wonderful experience, and we'll probably go back for a full riding holiday in the future. Hopefully my wife will pop online later and update this review with better details.

Los Olivillos is an amazing place, tucked away in the mountains, only 45 mins drive from Malaga. I enjoyed 3 wonderful days riding Spanish horses, simply not long enough ! The horses were very well behaved and my husband who is a novice rider was able to enjoy this experience on a beautiful horse who looked after him well on the mountain trail. The owners Donna, Tony and Jeff are very hospitable and friendly, down to earth people who look after their guests and horses very well. This facility would suite any type of rider ranging from an experienced to a novice ( riding in the traditional Spanish saddle is a must) as well as people who love the spending time in the mountains and wish to explore the natural park. The accommodation is a beautiful cottage and an apartment, with its own private pool a organic food. ( we did not stay this time but we defiantly will next time). We will be back again to experience this truly magical Spanish riding holiday,it was a first time for me and I can honesty say it was one of the best holiday.'s both me and my husband have been on. Please make sure you bring your camera and comfy riding boots and prepare yourself to fall in love with a Spanish horse..

Los Olivillos is a truly wonderful escape high in the mountains in The Sierra Tjeda area where you can lose yourself in rural Spain whilst being only 30 minutes from the coast. Designed for people seeking an outstanding authentic Spanish riding holiday, Los Olivillos will also appeal to keen hillwalkers and foodies alike! Donna, Tony and Jeff go out of their way to make your holiday special and with Donna's cooking, you are bound to go back a few pounds heavier! For horse lovers, this is paradise! All horses are very well cared for and love their work. There's a horse for everyone and to suit all abilities. No plodders here - sure footed, well trained and responsive, each and every one of the horses is a joy to ride. The terrain is mountainous but the rides can suit all riders with canters and off track riding for the more adventurous. Holidays here are full board and I can honestly say the food is first class. Always plenty of it and lovely that Donna prepares it empathetically with a Spanish influence. Accommodation is very comfortable in traditional Spanish style rustic fincas. I have holidayed here alone, with girlfriends and my husband and 7 year old daughter and I have returned again and again over the last 6 years. There are no negatives here. Los Olivillos - amazing place that will leave an etch in your heart forever.
