Rural Retreat with Cooking Courses in Andalusia
Tucked away in the heart of the olive country in Andalusia that borders the stunningly beautiful Parque Natural de las Sierras Subbéticas lies Finca Las Encinas. This Andalusian Finca occupies an amazing setting surrounded by the breathtaking views: superb panorama of hillsides carpeted with mature olive trees rolling gently across the horizon as far as the eye can reach. It is authentic rural Andalusia yet, the Finca is within easy reach to explore the World Heritage cities - Granada, Cordoba and Seville.
The Finca has been lovingly restored to a high standard yet retaining many original rustic features with plenty of cosy nooks and crannies for the guests to enjoy. Shying away from the extravagance, the atmosphere is very intimate, homely, idyllic and rustic.
The fresh and fruity aroma of the olive oil will dominate your sense as you approach the region; this is where the producers of the world's finest quality extra virgin olive oil originate. The region is full of outstanding natural beauty, diverse history, and rich cultural heritage that the people here thrive to preserve. It will be a unique travel experience - exploring some of the undiscovered jewels and a genuine flavour of Andalusia.
The nearest town Iznájar, of Moorish origin (from the Arabic hizn, fort, and, achar, refuge) is a picturesque whitewashed village in Andalusia with a stunning view of the surrounding countryside of endless olive groves and the Natural Park.
It is perched on top of a rocky outcrop below a remarkable 8th century Moorish fortress overlooking the reservoir known as The Lake of Andalusia.
Cooking courses with an award-winning chef is also available. Fun-filled sessions are very hands-on and his laid-back style and gentle nature will assist to increase your confidence in cooking and inspire your imagination.
