Boutique Hotel Rancho Los Lobos

Jimena de la Frontera, Andalusia, Spain

Thanks to the protected and varied nature around Rancho Los Lobos, you can enjoy a special feeling of tranquility here. The house is surrounded by two hectares of untouched nature. From the windows you can see the romantic inner courtyard, the horse paddock or the diverse gardens with old trees. The rooms are lined up around the inner courtyard, making the complex look very sheltered, warm and stylish.

Barbara and Karl have lived here since 2018. The hotel is over 120 years old and was first opened as a hotel in 1982. Before that, it served as an inn, which many travelers passed by. Since the village is not particularly big, everyone knew: r this "Venta". The place has a very special magic that the hosts felt immediately on their first visit. The tingling in her stomach made her buy, even if the hotel was in dire need of renovation.

Guests are personally welcomed here and can look forward to a special holiday experience away from mass tourism in Andalusia. Guests are treated like friends and are happy to be taken to their favorite bar. It also happens that Karl cooks for them individually.

All rooms are individually furnished and all furniture was deliberately selected in antique shops or at flea markets. The result is a mix of retro and shabby furnishings, which is complemented with modern, hand-made cement tiles and designer lamps.

Sustainable

ArchitectureThe building structure of the house is over 120 years old. Natural stone was used wherever possible. The conversion and renovation took place with companies from the region. In some cases, materials from old houses could be reused. The thatched roofs were made on site.

FoodOnly slow food is offered in the kitchen, mostly from our own garden. The ingredients of the dishes are mainly from organic farming and vegetarian and vegan dishes are served. Everything that grows in the garden and is not consumed immediately is boiled down. If certain foods or vegetables are missing for the preparation of dishes, the employees who also have their own vegetable gardens are asked first. The honey comes from the nature park. Incompatibilities can always be taken into account.

All employees live in the village. If there is cooking for the guests, the employees are always invited to eat with them. Once a year, the hosts organize: a pool party for the entire team. The hosts are involved in the local environmental association “EcoSystemArte”, for example in tree-planting campaigns and the organization of rubbish collection campaigns. They also support a small sponsorship project (NGUVU Edu Sport) in Togo and Kenya.

EnvironmentThe house draws solar power and is equipped with energy-saving lamps. The toilets have an economy flush and the taps have a special jet regulator, which significantly reduces the consumption of water. The rubbish is separated in the kitchen. The chickens get the organic waste. The vegetable garden is fertilized with the horse manure. The accommodation is cleaned with biological means. In the room folder you will find the concerns and the vision of the hosts: inside on the subject of the environment. This is particularly important to them as the accommodation is in a nature park.

Well-BeingThe guests are offered a wide variety of wellbeing activities: singing bowl, yoga (the yoga teachers come from the village), tai chi in the garden, Ayurveda cures and meditation in the morning. A hairdresser can come to the house on request. There is also a pool and soon a sauna. The well-being offer is rounded off by hikes in the nature park, guided e-bike tours, tennis games, EMS training, horse rides under the full moon, forest bathing, etc.
