Montenmedio in Vejer de la Frontera

The Montenmedio dehesa (managed Mediterrranean forest) is spread over approximately 500 hectares of a unique natural area. The dehesa de Montenmedio has a hotel, the NMAC foundation museum, horse riding, the sunshine tour horse competition, and golf.

Hacienda Montenmedio

The rooms of the estate are designed with the exquisite simplicity typical of old Andalusian country houses. The rooms have all what you need to feel like at home, such as a wireless internet connection and satellite TV.

NMAC Fundation

The NMAC Foundation is located in the interior grounds of the Dehesa Montenmedio in the Cadiz province of Vejer de la Frontera. The NMAC Foundation was created as a point of interaction between its social, cultural and territorial context.

Following the current model for a relationship-based centre, the NMAC Foundation project started as a mediating museum. NMAC commits to support contemporary artists promoting social dialogue and understanding through art.

It is situated in a rural setting, far from urban centres. The Foundation invites artists from all corners of the world to undertake site-specific projects in the form of installations, sculptures, photography, video-painting, performances and architectural projects within nature.

Montenmedio Equestrian Centre: Sunshine Tour

Montenmedio has the most extensive equestrian facilities in all of Europe for the equestrian sport in all four disciplines; Jumping, Dressage, Driving and Eventing.

The equestrian centre in Dehesa Montenmedio is perfect for international and national competitions, as well as national championships. Their facilities have two main areas so there may be different competitions happening at the same time.

The Sunshine Tour for both jumping and dressage are in February and March with 450 riders from 46 different nations and 1.500 horses.

The Montenmedio equestrian centre has 1300 permanent stables, 11 training and competition arenas, parking for 250 lorries and trailers, village area and restaurants. It is only 5 minutes away from the beautiful white town of Vejer de la Frontera, if you need a break.

Golf in Vejer de la Frontera Cadiz

The Montenmedio golf course (6.260 meters, 18 holes and par 72) is different from all other Spanish courses. Not a single building affects its fairways and Greens. Forests of wild olive, cork oak and pine trees surrounds this golf course. It has impressive views of the Atlantic, of white towns such as Vejer de la Frontera, Benalup and Medina Sidonia, and also of the African coast of Tangiers and Espartel.

Playing its 18 holes is always fun and surprising: deer, rabbits, ducks and other animals accompany the player along this gentle round. The club house is designed in neoclassic Andalusian style with Asian influences and subtle furnishings and offers excellent golf services. As Severiano Ballesteros said in an edition of the OKI Tour, “Montenmedio is one of the Golf Courses that no golfer should miss”

Hiking tours in the natural parks of Cadiz

In these private guided hiking tours in Cadiz province I offer incredible hikes in La Breña, El Estrecho and Los Alcornocales natural parks.

Cadiz province is one of the most biodiverse provinces in mainland Spain. Habitats range from dense forest reminiscent of cloud forest to Mediterranean forest, dune systems, and more. Moreover, enjoy the majestic views of Cadiz and the Strait of Gibraltar. Cadiz has the highest % of protected habitat in Andalusia, while its climate and sunlight hours are similar to Canary Islands.
