“Deep inside, we still have a longing to be reconnected with the nature that shaped our imagination, our language, our song and dance, our sense of the divine.”

Janine M.Benyus


Whether you dream of outdoor adventure or total relaxation, you’ll find it here.


Choose from equestrian activities designed for advanced and leisure riders, and spa and wellness programmes, mountain biking, hiking and trekking, farm tours, medicinal garden tours, hands-on gastronomy workshops, wine or olive oil tasting, and guided stargazing on the property. Or just lie in the shade of an ancient encino, breathe deep and take in the peace and spectacular views.



A guided tour through this magical space is a chance to learn about La Donaira’s approach to holistic permaculture. Modelled on medieval monastery gardens which served as living pharmacies, our garden has more than 350 types of healing and edible herbs and flowers.



A guided tour into the Medicinal Garden to learn about La Donaira’s holistic permaculture approach, followed by a tour in the Perma-culture Vegetable Gardens. The tour is specially designed for individuals or families who want to build their own garden, from scratch, back in their home. It will provide tools, insights and practical knowledge to help you make the first steps towards self-sufficiency.


Much more to enjoy including the natural spring-fed open-air pool, a well-stocked library, a cinema, and – for the musical – a Steinway piano, guitars, and sizeable vinyl collection.
