Velani Country Hotel - Crete

Sun and Riding

5 star rating   31 March 2022

Gillian who has been on 3 In The Saddle rides. A great Spring riding break. | The riding was varied in pace and type of surface. Cantering on hard stoney paths came as a bit of a shock at first, however, the horses are clearly well used to the terrain and I felt very secure. It was lovely riding amongst all the Spring flowers.

The room was excellent, it even included a coffee machine for my early morning cup of coffee.

It was a lovely time of the year (late March) to go riding in Crete as the temperature was not too hot or too cold and the countryside was green and full of Spring flowers.
