The main house (cortijo) is a family home which we run as a Bed & Breakfast. We enjoy meeting people and sharing our experience of the area. Buenvino is famous for good food, a relaxed ambiance, old world charm and stunning scenery. At the top of the hill sits the beautiful infinity pool with views out over the rolling hills. We also have 3 independent self-catering cottages dotted about the orchards and woods and some distance from the cortijo. We produce chestnuts and cork, and keep hens, lambs and pigs.

Family Run B&B in Sierra de Aracena Nature Park, near Seville, Andalucia, Spain

Finca Buenvino Bed & Breakfast is our home; it’s not a hotel, but the place where we have lived for 30 years, and welcomed guests and cookery students from all over the world. The house is set amongst 60 hectares of mixed forest, chiefly sweet Spanish chestnuts and cork oaks. We also have fruit orchards and olive groves. There is a small stream running through the valley, the "Arroyo Buenvino", which gives its name to the property. We run sheep on the land, and Iberian pigs from which which we make our own home-killed and cured Jamon Serrano, as well as salchichón and chorizo. Depending on the season, we grow most of our own organic vegetables.

The estate lies in the heart of the Sierra de Aracena National Park and Picos de Aroche near Seville in Andalucia, Spain. This is a richly endowed landscape and one of the least known and most beautiful parts of Andalucia.

The walking is outstanding and the air is pure. In spring the sounds are of birdsong and running water with spectacular wildflowers in April, May and June. Our beautiful saltwater pool is perfect for those hot summer days, and also in our later Indian summer.

In late October and early November the trees change colour and the chestnuts ripen. Once again it’s perfect for walking. Return to a hot bath and log fires and a glass of wine or Oloroso sherry. Good food, congenial company, beautiful nature, peace and comfort are all here.

Cookbook

 
The Cookbook from Spain

For over thirty years, we have lived high in the hills of Aracena in Western Andalucia. Good food has been the essence of our business and our daily lives. After many requests from our students attending our cookery courses and guests staying at our B&B, we have decided to share the secrets of our kitchen.
