Horse riding: There is an excellent riding school, called "Ride with me" located at Finca Juan  Berrocal (tel +34 600 351 034 - Kalle's mobile - www.ride-in-spain.com ) or at the Alhaurin Golf & Country Club (tel. +34 952 595800), both of which are about 5 minutes by car from the villa.  Horses are provided for experienced riders and lessons can be arranged if required. If you wish to see dressage demonstrations they are held every Thursday at The Andalucian School of Equestrian Art in Jerez. Many local tour operators have organised trips to Jerez include a visit to a sherry bodega. An Andalucian horse show is held locally at El Ranchito near Torremolinos every Wednesday at 5.30 pm (tel. +34 952 383140).

Tennis:  There is no shortage of places to play tennis on the Costa del Sol. The two most famous clubs are the Manolo Santana Club in Marbella where the Marbella Open is held each summer.  Ideal tennis playing conditions with an average daily temperature of 20 deg.C make it possible to play tennis all year round.
