9 ROOMS. 1700 ACRES. ABSOLUTE PEACE.
La Donaira is an organic farm, equestrian centre and discreetly luxurious eco-retreat set high in the Serranía de Ronda, Andalucía, southern Spain. We offer accommodation in just 9 individually-designed rooms; friendly, professional service; state-of-the-art installations including a spa; and an infinite list of tailored activities from riding and wellness to weddings. Tourism is one of the many activities at La Donaira we hope will inspire conversations about smart design and architecture, the arts, farming in the modern age and our role in the natural world.
LA DONAIRA JOURNAL
Thoughts, news and daily life on the farm
IKIGAI IS THE NEW HYGGE
2018 is all about Ikigai and this month’s good read is Awakening Your Ikigai by Ken Mogi which introduces the basic principles. Ikigai is a Japanese way of seeing things, most simply explained as being a ‘reason to get up in the morning’ (and translating as ‘reason to live’) and you can never have too many of those.
THE SALON SESSIONS
This year we are launching the Salon Sessions, a series of informal evening concerts held in the convivial setting of our own salon. Music from an impressive line-up of international classical artists lies at the heart but good company, good food, fine wine and general merriment are high in the mix.
“A world in which human activity is
as beneficial as that of bees and trees.”
