Nice that you are here – Welcome to our Hotel exclusively for adults
Boutique Hotel Rancho Los Lobos
The gravel road to the house is rough and bumpy.
In Jimena de la Frontera, turn left directly into the Parque Natural Los Alcornocales, into the wild forests of cork oaks and eucalyptus trees over a narrow iron bridge, always following this gravel road. But on your arrival at Rancho Los Lobos, a gateway opens up to a little paradise: it’s another world, a special place, sheltered by gentle hills, surrounded by pastures with goats, cattle and horses. From time to time, a locomotive slowly passes by and gives the whole scenery a charming touch of nostalgia.Our Rancho, with its garden, cosy corners and arbors dotted around the house, the paddocks and romantic stables, is a true refuge in the middle of the idyllic Natural Park Los Alcornocales. You can feel the wonderful tranquility between the palm trees, the horses and the refreshing cool pool. The house has been successfully run by an Austrian-Swiss couple for over 40 years and in 2018 we transformed it into a little gem with a lot of craftsmanship and attention to detail. The more than 100-year-old foundations have been completely renovated.
We, Karl (a passionate chef from Bavaria) and Barbara (an experienced horsewoman and physiotherapist), created at Rancho Los Lobos our vision of a small hotel with horses, delicious food and enchanting rooms . Our shared dream led us to this hundred-year-old gem in Andalusia.
Now the Rancho is beautifully renovated inside and out with Arabic and Andalusian influences, lots of wood, stone floors and open bathrooms in warm colors . With lovingly embroidered pillows and fresh white curtains blowing in the wind, our rooms are adorable little paradises. Your stay at Rancho is designed to offer you an unforgettable stay:
Restore Rejuvenate Relax
Breakfast with homemade cereals, fresh organic eggs from our chickens, delicious fruit from our garden and freshly brewed coffee awaits you on a table in the romantic courtyard.
Later on, enjoy some delicious Manchego cheese served with fig chutney from the region and homemade gazpacho with freshly baked bread. Help yourself to a glass of wine or fine sherry from our “ bodega” honesty bar.
How about taking part in our morning meditation session, helping to clean the barn the vegetable garden or exploring the area around us on horseback or e-bike.
In the evening Karl cooks dinner for our guests in the open kitchen. He learned his culinary skills in the well-known market hall of Barcelona and is happy to pass on his tips for preparing delicious tapas . Barbara will charm you with lots of interesting tales about horses and will inspire you to embark on a ride through the wild nature around the Rancho.
Welcome to dreamy laziness !
