Dehesa de las Yeguas
Discovered on a private family-run farm in Bahia de Cádiz Natural Park, Andalucia, Dehesa de las Yeguas (Spanish for "pastureland of play") is home to three luxury safari-style tents and an inviting swimming pool, all surrounded by a breathtaking panorama of sweet-scented Mediterranean pine trees.
Perfect for couples, families and groups of friends who want to get up close and personal with nature whilst living in the lap of luxury, this is the ideal place to watch horses trot by, as you relax on your private veranda and luxuriate in the lush natural landscape.
Each air-conditioned and fully heated 50m2 safari tent is built on a raised wooden platform and is completely self-contained, featuring its very own bathroom and one or two bedrooms. You'll also find a well-equipped kitchen, a separate dining room, a sitting area with sofa, and a furnished veranda with stunning natural views (chatting over morning coffee and evening drinks never enjoyed such a glorious setting!)
Inside, you'll find vibrant natural décor reminiscent of traditional Spanish life, together with luxuries that include wooden flooring, comfy beds dressed in crisp Egyptian linen, a rain shower with plenty of piping hot water, a supply of fluffy towels, toiletries and even some cosy slippers!
Why not treat yourselves to even more Spanish tradition by arranging a freshly-cooked meal? Choose from local delicacies that include mouthwatering grilled fish, cooling gazpacho...or for a real treat, a delicious paella, made from a recipe that has been in the owner's family for generations.
Once you've taken in all the luxury of your tent, cooled off in the swimming pool that just begs to be enjoyed and had a delicious meal, you're sure to want to get out and explore the area. Discover acre after acre of lush land to hike, run or cycle through, as you breathe in plenty of fresh natural air, collect a few mushrooms and say hello to the farm animals and local wildlife along your way.
The area is ideal for horseriding (if you feel so inclined, you can even bring the family horse along to enjoy your holiday along with you!), though if you prefer, you can sit back and relax on an excursion in a horse-drawn carriage instead.
Slightly further afield, jump in the car to find the beautiful sandy beaches of Cádiz just ten minutes away, together with plenty of exquisitely traditional villages to browse through. For an extra taste of holiday indulgence, why not arrange a sherry tasting tour to the world-renowned bodegas in nearby Jerez de la Frontera?
After a long day of sightseeing, walking, relaxing and sherry-sampling, steal away to your luxury safari tent and prepare a refreshing drink, poolside...just in time to watch the blazing orange sunset from the comfort of your veranda. As the Spanish say, "viva la vida!"
