Paradise in Spain
We met the owner of Finca La Donaira a couple of years ago. He was working on setting up a beautiful place, called Finca La Donaira in Andalusia Spain. He bought several items of us and because it was quite a lot we offered to bring these items to his place. Once we came there we never wanted to leave again!
La Donaira is a unique place: in an exquisite and remote Andalusian valley you will find an old 'finca' with several accommodations to stay, an indoor and outdoor swimming pool, sauna and hammam and access to the farm, woodland and medicinal garden.
The farm's philosophy
Besides offering accommodations La Donaira covers 1700 acres high in the Serranía de Ronda, Andalucia. On the farm you will find many animals such as sheep and goats, Pajuna cattle, hens, bees, mules and donkeys. Farming happens along permaculture principles. The same principles underpin everything that happens at La Donaira from green education and accommodation design to collaborative arts festivals. There is a coming and going of volunteers, experts and guests from all walks of life, bringing a fresh way of thinking that seeds bright new ideas about better ways of doing things in all areas of life.
One of the best things of La Donaira we did not even mention yet: the breeding of beautiful Lusitano horses. The breeding actually lies at the heart of the work at La Donaira. There are currently 70 horses bred and raised according to natural horsemanship principles.
We can only highly recommend this place! We assisted the owner in buying and placing antique mirrors, paintings, chandeliers and several decoration items.
