La Portenita has been at the hub of the Hayes Brothers operation from the beginning and has been enjoyed by hundreds, if not thousands of shooters over the years. Approached down a long drive and set on a small hill top, the lodge enjoys stunning 360° views, but particularly to the Sierra Chicas to the northwest.
The lodge has six bedrooms and bathrooms with a huge living room. Additional guests can be accommodated in the three bedrooms in the Casita, just nearby in the immaculate grounds. There is also a swimming pool and a charming Jesuit Chapel.
The doves, vermin in the eyes of the locals for the damage they do to crops, roost 25 – 45 minutes way from La Portentia and by their sheer numbers each days sport is guaranteed. A restorative massage at the end of the day is very welcome indeed.
