Crystalline Waters of Gredos

5 star rating   15 July 2017

It was a very good combination of adventure whilst having enough comfort to enjoy a relaxing time. Everything was taken care of by Emilio and Mamen to make my holiday an excellent experience. My holiday started immediately with the smile and warm welcome of Mamen when picking me up at the airport. Emilio is very a friendly man and he quietly observes his riders to make sure he gets the best match for the rider and horse. I had a great horse, very forward going and yet so reliable. This made me feel very comfortable at riding and I could really enjoy this trail. All horses had a very friendly character and are so beautiful and healthy. Every day we experienced something new during the trail, there was always something else to discover and to admire. It is a pleasure to see that they treat their horses so well, they really love their horses. Mamen is a great cook. Every day she prepared something else for us (paella, grilled steak, tortilla's with different flavours, desserts) and not to forget the homemade 'happy juice'. And last but not least, their amusing dog Brasas accompanied us on the trail. She's a pleasure to have had her around! Thanks Emilio and Mamen for this great experience! I'm so happy I joined your trail!

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

The food was very good. Also the service was very friendly and helpful. They explained very well what the menu contained. We always had a choice which I find an important plus. They were also very flexible when something in the menu had to be changed as to allergies for example.
Overall the personnel at the hotel was very friendly and if help was needed they were immediately disposable.
