Boutique Hotel Residencia Fundador

Equestrian holiday in Andalusia

Relaxation in a peaceful environment, set in in stunning countryside, dressage at a high level with our P.R.E. stallions who have characteristically well-balanced temperaments. Or go on hacks in our sloping hilly landscape without having to deal with roads, motorised traffic or even fences. Let us pamper you with our culinary variety and dine in an extraordinary atmosphere.

Guests are welcome to spend a whole holiday or just a short stopover on the way to their destination. Experience our quiet and unique location and enjoy our special individually planned meals. Away from the busy tourist hubs but still within reasonable driving distance to a safe sandy beach. Those of you who need sport activities won’t be disappointed, and will find great mountain biking with miles and miles of interesting trails and terrain.

Whether you are an advanced rider or whether you haven’t been in the saddle for quite a while, we can tailor the equestrian schedule to fit your needs. On our well-schooled and even-tempered horses, you can re-discover your love of the riding sport safely in a calm environment. Advanced riders who are looking to improve their skills and hoping for some fine-tuning, or experienced riders who would like to give classic dressage a try, or improve your skills, will be thrilled about the opportunities we offer. In addition to practising your dressage skills in our large dressage arena, with individual instruction, you also have the option of discovering our fantastic hills, on horseback, on extended guided hacks.

Yoga & Riding

Riding and yoga complement each other wonderfully. In yoga you can relax and stretch your body as needed or strengthen specific muscle groups. Your nervous system is stimulated, making it easier to consciously control tension and relaxation. The yoga classes are suitable for beginners and advanced students alike. The small group size allows an individual approach to the needs of each person. The classes take place in our hotel, in a wonderful ambience, on one of our shady terraces or, depending on the weather, on the sunny terrace next to the pool. The yoga classes can be booked with all the riding packages as well as individually.
