Celebrity Gossip: Princes William and Harry enjoy hunting expeditions on a magnificent country estate in Cordoba

The rolling landscape of Andalusia has long captured the hearts of artists, poets and writers, dotted with historic houses, farms and estates. La Garganta is a magnificent centuries-old country estate in the southern Cordoba province owned by the Duke of Westminster (and Godfather to Prince William).

With an ancient house, 6 villas, vineyards, olive groves and 32,000 acres of land including caza (or hunting grounds), the Duke has welcomed many a colourful visitor to the region, the likes of whom include Princes William and Harry. It is reported that the brothers can often be spotted during the high season, where it is common to hunt wild boar, partridge and stag among other luxury pursuits.

The appeal of owning and visiting a Country Estate isn’t hard to fathom, with many working estates producing olive oil, citrus fruits and crops as well as big game. Add to this the favourable climate, unique history and exquisite local cuisine for a destination fit for royalty.
