The 1.5-hour ‘How the Andalusian Horses Dance’ show is held at the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art, in the historic center of Jerez.

MUSIC

While at the FInca, Denis has invited top professional performers to entertain us. We will enjoy Flamenco; Classical Spanish guitar and a duo of singers who play the pan flute and guitar. It is performed by the audience as well as the artiste and anyone else who feels the urge to participate.These performances will be at our villa after dinner.

AMAZING MEALS AND EXPERIENCES

“Dinner started with salad and the a pork slice drizzled in a sauce topped with capers. The main course was a delicious pesto pasta. Dessert was a plum and apple and cherry crumble. After dinner Lucho and Eddie from Equador played guitar and pan flutes for a delightful evening concert. Many artists were dancing to the lively music.” – May 25th 2017 diary entry from Karlyn Holman  See More
