Velani Country Hotel - Crete

Sun and Riding

5 star rating   6 July 2019

LJD (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) Relaxed girls' riding holiday - complete success. | Lovely selection of horses to suit ability and age. Some riding experience is necessary but the guides are very happy to adapt the rides to suit the group. Horses were all very well behaved out on the rides but also responsive. Instruction excellent with private lessons often available on request after the evening ride.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

Rooms basic but very clean with an excellent daily housekeeping service. Recommend rooms 14 and 16 as they are the most private. We had 14 which has a bigger terrace than most. Food home cooked food with fresh mainly home grown vegetables and fruits. All food was of a high standard. Great value local wines and beers. Fantastic service and staff really made you feel welcome. We were very sad to say goodbye.
