horseriding on the costa del sol
Horses have been central to life in southern Spain for many centuries and equestrianism remains one of the region’s best-loved pastimes and most important visitor attractions, with the native Andalucian breed a much sought-after line in bloodstock circles around the world.
As a central feature of Spain’s popular summer ferias, beautifully groomed horses are proudly displayed by young ‘caballistas’ dressed in the traditional ‘traje corto’ who parade their prancing mounts around the town, often with an equally well attired wife or girlfriend in colourful flamenco costume precariously perched behind the saddle.
On a more practical note, should you wish to go horse riding – or take some lessons – during your holiday at Villa Feliz, there are plenty of opportunities to do so, with several clubs and stables within easy reach of the villa.
Establo El Castillo, Fuengirola
Literally right on the doorstep of the Club La Costa World resort, this small stable offers horse rentals for experienced riders and riding trips of 1, 2 or 4 hour duration, as well as regular horse and flamenco shows and a nice restaurant. Simply walk in, have a look around and make your booking! Tel: 0034 952 472 780
Club Hipico, La Cala de Mijas
Just 5 minutes away by car – or take a bus to La Cala and walk – this small, friendly club has horses, ponies andriding lessons available for children of all ages and adults. Experienced riders can also rent horses as required. Tel: 0034 677 761 066

Padel has seen exponential growth in recent years because it is an enjoyable sport of a distinctly social nature. During this time the Costa del Sol has become one of the main hubs for this sport in Spain thanks to its pleasant temperature throughout the year, and the large, modern open-air facilities where it can be played.
We recommend you to try! Many families found out that this became their favorite activity also when they arrived back home. We can also arrange padel-trainingcamp and other padel activities. Contact us for more information!
These are our favorite clubs:
Cerrado del Aguila is one of the most "down to earth" facilities and its location (only 5 minutes away from the villa). It has nine padel courts and a sports academy where both children and adults can learn to play and improve their game. Padel is very easy to play, but having lessons will help you to make quicker progress, of course. The club also hosted WPT in 2017. Good snackfood, drinks and under roof courts. Talk with Gabbi or Louis at the club and say your regards from Johnny (In Norway) and you get a warm welcome (you always do).
Since the creation of the Fuengirola Padel Club, padel has occupied a privileged place among its activities. The centre has eight courts which have been graced by some of the best players on the national scene, thanks to hosting many of the biggest tournaments. Very friendly, good snack food. Ask for Dennis and say you regards from Johnny in Norway.
Club Municipal de Raqueta and Reserva Higuerón (Benalmádena)
Benalmádena can boast two places that are important venues for playing padel. The Club Municipal de Raqueta in Benalmádena has been prepared exclusively for playing tennis and padel. It is located in the centre of the town and is only three minutes away from the beach and 10minutes with car from the villa. The Reserva del Higuerón is one of the largest padel resorts on the Costa del Sol and in the whole of Andalusia. There are a total of 11 padel courts.
