The hosts Maki & Clive were very welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable about the local area. Our room was immaculate, spacious, cool and tastefully rustic, during the couple of days bad weather the underfloor heating was fab, and when it was hot there was plenty of space around the pool with comfortable beds. The views from the pool and patio where... More

My friend and I had a great time with Clive and Maki. The Finca was gorgeous and it was delightful to learn to cook Spanish cuisine using produce from the gardens! It was unseasonably cold and rainy for early May so we weren't able to use the pool but we did explore the surrounding towns (Priego de Cordoba was a... More

It truly felt like mum and I had lived with a family for a week. Clive and Maki were so accessible for advice, for stories, recommendations and just sharing their day with us. We tended to head off after breakfast (I think I was early to bed so I could wake up for this!) after taking direction and then return... More

I stayed at Finca Las Encinas at the end of March as part of a horse-riding holiday - I was a solo traveller and I couldn't have asked for a warmer welcome and happier stay. The hosts, Clive and Maki and their son are so relaxed, friendly and keen to see guests enjoy their time. For me, it felt like... More

My sister and our husbands took a 3 1/2 wk trip to Spain and included a couple of cooking classes. It was a wonderful trip! Our stay and the cooking class with Chef Clive was absolutely one of the best highlights of the whole trip. Clive's class was the best we've taken - ever. It was challenging and yet not... More

What an amazing week I spent with my two boys right in the heart of Andalucia on the Olive route. This trip far exceeded any expectations i had, from Clive's outstanding culinary skills to Maki's tender loving care- I felt like a queen, so well cared for each day it was difficult to leave.

We had such a lovely few days at Finca las Encinas, I just wish we had booked for longer. Clive's cooking was amazing with vegetables totally fresh from the Finca.
