We booked this earlier in the summer as myself and sister in law go on a few dates cookery and then a couple of days in the city. What a find, this place is absolute heaven and the hosts Clive and Maki (not forgetting the gorgeous Cei and cheeky Lassie and Smokey) could not have been better. The rooms are... More

We stayed in the suite at Las Encinas for a couple of nights in September and were very well looked after. The room was spotless, spacious and had everything you could need. The house is stunning and around the pool was very well styled and cared for. Clive's food was spectacular - tasty, fresh and presented beautifully. Maki was delightful,... 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. Clive made these amazing dinners every... More

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. Maki, Clive and Kai were so welcoming, helpful and great company. Aperatifs lounging in the hammocks and supper round the pool in April was idyllic, the treehouse and olive grove... More

Great holiday spent learning to cook with Clive, soaking up some culture as well as relaxing at the Finca. Nothing too much trouble for Maki and Clive to make our stay fantastic! Warm welcome from the dogs too on our arrival! Lovely place to stay and the food was fantastic! Looking forward to being able to go back!

Maki and Clive are perfect hosts! Clive: My wife and I took 3 cooking classes with Clive whose way of teaching techniques and food and meal preparation and presentation is superb. He taught us to relax and how to cook simply and locally. Clive's recipes are now part of our at-home meals. Maki: She drove us around and organized our... More

We held our annual family reunion here this year with a range of age from eighties to teenagers with everyone delighted ! The rural location just outside Iznajar is ideal for peace and quiet but very well positioned with Granada, Cordoba and Malaga within easy reach. The accommodation is excellent with a nice swimming pool. By far the making of... More

Stayed for 2 nights in May 2015, the food, wine and musical entertainment was superb. We´ll go there again in October for more peace and tranquility surrouned by miles of olive groves with wonderful views, excellent in every way and also made very welcome by Smokey and Lassie.

We spent a couple of days in Córdoba and environs and booked a night with Clive and Maki. A little interesting... More

We stayed at Finca Las Encinas for three nights and it was absolutely perfect. You have to eat Clives delicious meals, he is a great cook and we regreted that we were not able to come back to do his cooking class because of personal reasons. They were absolutely friendly and wise in every situation. They have a lot of... More
