luxury riding holidays

Our holidays are our star attraction. Our onsite luxury accommodation with unbelievable facilities means you can combine a luxury holiday with your unforgettable riding experience.

riding

On riding days you will spend up to 3 hours in the saddle either in our arena or out hacking through this incredible area. Visiting the surrounding villages, and taking in the beautiful views all around you all on our wonderful safe surefooted horses.

 

We encourage all of our riders to get to know their horses and take part in grooming and tacking up as well as the riding as we feel this helps you to get the most out of your experience.  All hacks are guided by Darren, with more than 20 years experience as a professional jockey, whose incredible horsemanship, vast knowledge and expertise help make our holidays truly unique.

We prefer riders coming along on our riding holidays to be comfortable in all three gaits and to be able to control the horse due to the amount of saddle time involved. Although we can take beginners in smaller groups, please contact us to discuss your requirements.

accommodation

Our luxury apartments are well appointed, spacious and very comfortable meaning you have everything you need to enjoy an incredible holiday. They are stylishly decorated and equipped with both air conditioning and heating so you are comfortable no matter what the time of year. They feature Samsung Smart TV's, DVD players and Bluetooth speakers and have private terraces overlooking the front of the property with its stunning cactus garden, orchard and views across the olive groves to the mountains.

 

Standard accommodation is based upon two people sharing a twin room, but if you don’t fancy sharing, double rooms are available with a single person supplement. All bedlinen and towels are provided, including pool towels. 

catering

Our holidays are partially catered, for example on a 7 night stay you will enjoy a fantastic continental breakfast each morning, with traditional evening meals on riding days.  Our fantastic meals are mainly catered at the retreat using a lot of our own freshly grown produce (time of year allowing) as well as locally sourced goods, but we also like to take our guests out to some of our best local restaurants to sample the local cuisine and experience the local lifestyle.

 

All meals include a drink, either a soft drink, a glass of wine, or a beer. Extra food and drinks are available at an additional cost. Read "Whats included" for a list of the meals provided.

Self catering options are available please contact us for details

facilities

We believe our facilities are second to none, our fabulous south facing swimming pool means you can soak up the sun whatever the time of day. Surrounded by sunbeds you can relax around the pool with a good book or even sample one of our cocktails from the bar. When you get bored of sunbathing you can enjoy a game of pool or darts, or even a game of Petanque on our specially build court, you can take a walk around our 30000 sq mt retreat, taking in our beautiful fishing lake, the river bed and the incredible array of wildlife that can be found here or you can simply sit on your private terrace with a cold glass of wine and enjoy the incredible panoramic views.
