Cortijo La Presa made the news in the UK after Mark Willey from The Sun joined us for a weekend of cycling, eating and drinking. Mark’s report on his visit to the Sierras Subbeticas appeared on Page 52 of The Sun on Saturday May 7.

As well as mountain biking, Mark also enjoyed a post-ride yoga session with Claire and a night out in wonderful Priego de Córdoba. Unfortunately, he didn’t quite have time to go for a walk with Divina – but we’re hoping he’ll return soon.

What Mark didn’t mention in the report was his epic bike ride up from Malaga airport – a distance of more than 100kms, and most of it uphill as he climbed through the mountains to reach us. Mark, we salute you!
