“Guided by Mother Nature, the food is super fresh, local and seasonal.”
Wildfitness guests stay at the beautiful 17th century Cortijo near the pretty village of Arcos de la Frontera. The Cortijo has 16 bedrooms arranged around a courtyard hung with grape vines and shaded by orange trees. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable with breath-taking views of the surrounding wild hills; bathrooms are en suite, fitted with hair dryers and some have baths. There are many places to chill out inside and out, with chairs and tables in the gardens, courtyard and by the pool. There are communal rooms with fires, including a library to ‘retire to drink brandy’ (or herbal tea) and the veranda offers an authentic setting for Spanish al fresco dining. The Cortijo is that amazing mix of authenticity, style, functionality and comfort.
Most of the food we source is grown organically in the local area by neighbouring farmers. There are also rabbit and pigeon shot on the estate (although Spring is not the shooting season, so it will have been frozen). Wild asparagus and herbs are grown near the Cortijo, and you can get involved with harvesting them if you feel like it.
The menu provided on the course has been adapted to follow our wild eating principles (see Wild Eating page for details). We can also provide a personalised menu for vegetarians or those with specific allergies.
The Cortijo is that amazing mix of authenticity, style, homeliness and comfort.
