Horse riding and mindfulness holidays

Spanish hacienda and tree lined path

The traditional hacienda accommodation

Head to Spain for horse riding with Pilates or yoga & mindfulness to create the ultimate wellbeing experience. Combine the intuitiveness & gentleness of the horses with restorative yoga or Pilates and you’ll gain greater mental focus and emotional resilience while working on balance and body alignment.

This traditional Spanish hacienda, with accommodation, stables and swimming pool on a 34 acre working olive farm, is located in the stunning countryside just 30 minutes from the vibrant city of Seville.

All meals are included, and we don’t need to tell you that the food will be outstanding as you eat the best locally sourced food available, enjoyed in the hacienda or by the pool in the evenings. Expect Andalusian cuisine, tapas, and Moorish spices, served up daily with local wine and cold Spanish beers.

And with Seville so close, you may want to extend your holiday and spend some time there, but while you’re with your hosts, the nearby National Park is yours to explore and towns of Pilas and Aznalcázar are within walking distance and filled with restaurants, shops and culture.
