Los Alamos - Spain

Villa Based Ride

5 star rating   8 September 2019

Amanda (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) Fantastic holiday | Yes it did. I rode two horses and they were both rideable and fun. The pace was fast at times but I was always well within my comfort zone and the guides made sure were all prepared and ready for the canters and gallops on the varied terrain. Rachel made a point of talking to us at the yard the day we arrived about our experience and our aspirations for the week and was always interested in how each ride went.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

Rhiannon’s catering was lovely and she and Andrew were great hosts during the week. We enjoyed the early morning help yourself breakfasts and having the use of the guests kitchen and lounge made breakfasts and pre dinner drinks very sociable. Rachel organised mid ride breakfasts ( we definitely didn’t go hungry! ) and hosted lunch each day at a taverna which was a great opportunity to eat local tapas.
The room was comfortable and had an invaluable ceiling fan.
We were there the first week in September and the swimming pool was a great way to cool down and socialise after riding.

There were 10 guests the week we were there, three of whom had been to Los Alamos before. It was a diverse group but everyone was so friendly and the camaraderie and banter set the seal on a fantastic week.
