Amparo’s wild and wonderful 500-hectare working estate has been in her family for generations and was once used for breeding and training fighting bulls. Now, set amongst the pine forests, there are tents for glamping and a rustic self-catering house. The one-storey whitewashed building wreathed in bougainvillea has an authentic air to it; inside the living/dining room is adorned with saddles and a stag head mounted on the wall. Family photos, heavy furniture and squishy sofas in front of a huge open fire invite you to unbend. The three bedrooms (one en suite, one family bathroom) keep you cool with handmade barro floor tiles; carved wooden doors, new curtains and comfy beds mean you’ll sleep deeply, and two overlook the garden. The simple kitchen is perfectly fine for cooking seafood that you’ve bought at the market in Puerto Real (4km); eat out on the terrace as the sun goes down. Get lost in the many sandy pine trails around the estate (on foot or horseback), jump in the pool, hit the sherry tours in Jerez, history in Cadiz and, of course, there are beaches galore.
