Overview

Combine a luxury holiday with an unforgettable riding Xperience in the Alpujarras Mountains in the heart of Andalucia. Each day you can enjoy stunning treks and/or take lessons at the arena with professional instructors. This Xperience is fully customized  and there are different riding itineraries to choose from, giving each and every rider a unique Xperience offering programs to suit all abilities and budgets.

We offer a range of highly flexible riding packages to suit your needs and desires and aim to make your time as enjoyable as possible. Everyone has unique requirements and expectations as to what their perfect horse riding holiday should look like. We cater for individuals, small groups, couples and families. You may want to focus on improving your riding in the arena or maybe you want to enjoy a series of mountain trails. Trail groups are kept small so you will never find yourself trailing behind an endless line of horses nose to tail. There will never be more than six riders on a trail at any one time, ensuring maximum safety and a personal touch. All abilities are catered for and you will be matched with suitable horses based on the information you provide. Massage and reflexology treatments are available on request throughout your stay (paid locally).

This is the perfect Xperience for anyone wanting to get away from it all and simply ride and relax.

You will be welcomed by your hosts Les and Audrey who will assist you throughout your stay. On this horse riding holiday you will stay in your own private apartment surrounded by beautiful gardens within a luxury complex with its own pool. Full self catering facilities are provided in your apartment so you have the freedom to eat what you want when you want. The apartments are set in tropical gardens with a dramatic mountain backdrop. It truly is an oasis of calm and tranquility and the perfect place to head back to after a morning spent in the saddle

The south facing pool area is surrounded by gorgeous palm, orange and olive trees and wonderful flowers. Around the pool are Balinese style lounging areas and a Moroccan day bed. The summer house hosts an honesty bar and provides seating.

The apartments are a short walk (approximately five to ten minutes) from the equestrian facilities which is located a little further along the same road.
