Introduction
Mallorca/Menorca Spain
Dedicated to the world of horses, this beautiful estate has become a compelling visit for the horse enthusiast and admirer of the peaceful Mallorcan countryside. Surrounded by the idyllic natural beauty of the Levante hills, the finca offers the natural terrain and luxury embellishments to make this your best riding holiday. This trip is perfectly suited for a good rider who is looking for a mixture of thrilling rides and relaxation. We ride at all paces across the island, so prepare yourself for some memorable gallops! On horseback, we will visit 3 different monasteries on the island: the monastery of Saint Salvador, the monastery of Consolació, and the monastery of Montission. We will admire the beauty of these well-preserved monasteries and learn a thing or two about their history. We give ourselves and the horses a break for one day to explore Palma or Es Trenc beach. In March, April, October, and November only, you'll get to visit the spa ride on Es Trenc beach and cross an important items off your bucket list. During the other months, you'll get to choose between lessons on our Andalusian horses or an excursion. You can always add on extra trails or lessons if you want more time in the saddle!

The hotel, which has become the heart of the estate, has 12 comfortable private rooms and a clubhouse (with a bar, restaurant, swimming pool, terraces and small spa facility). It is built in the traditional Spanish style: a country home decorated in a functional yet rustic way with all the necessary facilities for a relaxing vacation. Food is delicious and high quality. Come explore with us on this beautiful island!
