Finca La Donaira


An Andalusian sanctuary

Set amid the rugged mountains and green valleys of Andalusia’s Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park, Finca La Donaira is a beautiful rural sanctuary with an organic farm, equestrian centre, spa and engaging range of activities.

In the rustic farmhouse, seven individual rooms are simple and of their place with contemporary touches, while two opulent yurts provide two more rooms.

Created with biodynamic ethos, everything is here to make you feel well and connected to the land, from the healthy, organic cuisine prepared each day from the farm’s produce to hiking trails, meditation points, an open-air spring-fed pool and the spa.

Explore the 7000-hectare estate on hiking trails, by bike or horseback, learn about biodynamic farming and winemaking, or simply lie in the shade of a 700-year-old oak tree and enjoy the peace and views of the Andalusian pasture.

La Donaira was founded to create a biodynamic eco-effective farm supported by tourism, with a vision of the land becoming an exemplary sanctuary for birds, bees and other wildlife. The results are evident to see.


The property is almost entirely self-sustaining, making organic wine, olive oil, almond milk, eggs, honey, goat’s cheese and more. What isn’t produced on the farm is sourced from a local network of artisan producers.
