Horse Riding Week To Remember

Unbeatable Riding

During your full board horse riding holiday with us you will enjoy superb riding, have time to sunbathe on the beach and join in socialising over dinner. Our trails provide two fantastic days of beach horse riding, and three days of great forest riding. Each day is unique and includes lovely steady canters along sandy tracks and fast canters / gallops along firebreaks. Our horses are well schooled with kind manners and go at a pace our riders ask of them. Beach riding days are unforgettable, a dream come true! Between canters the pace is relaxed, making the most of this incredibly peaceful forest. Our horse riding holidays provide superb off road horse riding for competent riders.

 

Luxurious Hotel Accommodation.

We use comfortable and well-appointed beach front hotels for our accommodation. The hotels are excellent, and being family run they are very friendly and welcoming. The Hotel Adiafa is located only 50 metres from the sea front, and the Aparthotel Playa Barbate is right on Barbate's promenade. The Adiafa has spacious twin-bedded rooms with on-suite bathroom. The Playa Barbate has spacious apartments with either one or two bedrooms, lounge, fully fitted kitchen and bathroom. Both hotels are fully air-conditioned and have free wi-fi internet connection. Single bookings are given their own bedroom and dual bookings share.

More Than A Horse Riding Adventure.

Your holiday base for the weeks horse riding is the seaside town of Barbate. The town provides a fantastic setting for an all-year-round holiday destination. The hotels are just a few metres from the town's beautiful 1km long fine sandy beach, ideal for relaxing and sunbathing after the day's horse riding has finished. However Barbate is much more than superb riding and a beautiful beach. The town has a lovely promenade with ice-cream parlours, bars, and restaurants. In the centre there is shopping, a lovely town square and a superb fish and fruit market. During your week with us you will experience our superb horse riding and the adventure of living in a typical Spanish town.

 

Friendly, Welcoming Groups.

Our full board horse riding vacations are ideal for both single and group bookings. We keep groups small so that our guests create a great friendly atmosphere. You will meet like-minded people and have new friends by the end of the horse riding holiday. The rides are led by ourselves, Steve and Caroline, and the maximum group is eight riders. We provide a great value for money horse riding vacation that is a dream come true. All your needs will be taken care of so you can enjoy a stress-free horse riding holiday.

Superb Accommodation

Adiafa Balcony Rooms with Sea View

The hotel is west facing and receives the afternoon sun. Rooms with a spacious balcony and sea view are available with the payment of a supplement. These balconies are perfect for sunbathing or chilling out watching the sun set. The basic cost of the holiday includes a room without a balcony and sea view.

 

Playa Barbate Balconies

The apartment hotel is right on the sea front, and all the apartments that we use have a balcony with a side sea view. These balconies are perfect for chilling out and watching the sun set.

From March to mid-November guests are allocated rooms at the hotel Adiafa. However, from mid-November through to the end of February the Adiafa is closed. During this period guests stay at the aparthotel Playa Barbate.

 

Shared Bookings

Two guests travelling together will be allocated a shared twin bedroom. A supplement can be paid by both guests to guarantee single use bedrooms if preferred. Odd numbers of guests on a booking will be allocated shared twin rooms and one individual use room. During low season the individual use room will be without charge, during the rest of the year the single room supplement will be applied.

Superb Food Options.

The vacations would not be complete without good food and drink. Buffet breakfasts are available at the Adiafa, and lunches are taken after the ride in traditional 'tapas' bars. Dinners are at quality restaurants in Barbate. All meals are typical ‘Andaluz’ with meat and fish dishes being served. Vegetarians can be catered for.

 

Hotel Adiafa Breakfast.

From 2023 the hotel Adiafa will have a buffet breakfast available. Breakfasts can be prebooked with payment of a supplement, or if preferred can be paid for locally while you are here. The breakfast is a help yourself buffet, with cereals, fruit, cooked meats, eggs, croissants, toast, preserves, tea, coffee, etc. The supplement includes six breakfasts, Monday through Saturday.
