Rural B&B with Good Food

Do more of what you love, slow down… and feel great

We are on a journey to feel fulfilled everyday – at work place and in private life. Life goes too fast or too much pressure… so it is OK to take it easy or do something out of the ordinary at times. We cordially invite you to join us at this small rural retreat in Andalusia.

Our gourmet B&B Finca Las Encinas enjoys a beautiful setting surrounded by the unspoilt natural landscapes of gentle hills and olive groves, a clear blue sky above our heads over 300 days of the year.

If you feel energetic, start your day early and enjoy the still morning listening to the quiet as the sun rises. Watch a bright full moon slowly rises over the mountain range from the terrace on our patio. When the local farmers harvest their olive fruits in autumn, a delicate aroma perfumes the air. Even in winter, a crisp air is refreshingly pleasing.

Enjoy great food and fine wines with other friendly guests or participate in cooking courses for an exceptional culinary experience.

We believe that these little moments matter. Go on, indulge yourself!


Dining at Gourmet B&B Finca Las Encinas is an uncompromising affair. We make sure that all ingredients we use are the freshest and finest, which are ecologically and ethically produced by ourselves on our grounds, local farmers known to us personally or we purchase seafood from sustainable sources. Using such wonderful seasonal ingredients, no wonder Chef Clive always produces magic in his Spanish kitchen!
