It was our pleasure to have Iona and Rob from the Olive Press newspaper join us at Cortijo La Presa for a weekend of mountain biking, yoga and walking with Divina the goat.
Mountain biking was the major theme, with a fast spin down Olive Groove – one of our own network of trails – and a gentler ride along Almond Avenue to the river and cave. Next day we climbed to 1,000 metres with our ride up to the ruins at the base of La Tiñosa. Rob now appreciates the benefits of padded shorts!
We also enjoyed a visit to Lake Iznajar beach and the white-washed town’s historic Moorish castle. This was topped off by an enjoyable night out in Priego de Cordoba, where we feasted on modern tapas at the funky Zyrah.
