Remember the romance of Zorro movies where Antonio Banderas comes tearing in, on the back of a black stallion, hooves clattering on the cobbles, to the safe haven of white cortijo walls smothered in crimson bougainvillea? Now you have the image of La Penuela.

Two incredible, large family homes on top of a small hill in the heart of Andalucia create the perfect estate with large patios, courtyards and gardens – ideal for first-class, large-scale events.

Stray from the dramatic arrival courtyard and wander down an arched corridor to marvel at the family’s private capilla and wine bodegas. The heady smell of old wine in oak casts adds to the sensory pleasures of this amazing location.

The corridor leads off to a vine-canopied patio with magnificent views over the rolling countryside. This is the ideal location for a sit-down dinner, conference, wedding reception or any other exterior gathering.

Another integral part of this rural hideaway is the private bullring which will crown any event as a nightclub, disco or show place.
