Non-riders, mornings free + afternoon tours of the region   (Option F)


This is an option for non-riding guests accompanying riders on Options C and D. This option is similar to options C or D but instead of riding in the mornings you can watch any riders in the school, enjoy walks in the country, or simply relax at the centre (bar, sun and shade terraces).

There are local activities and great walking country for non-riders. We back on to a protected nature reserve.

This area is also a bird watcher's paradise.

Later you can take lunch with the riders if you wish, then in the afternoon you would join the Tours of the Region.

During 7 night fully inclusive holidays on Wednesdays mornings only we leave you free to relax or explore the market town of Hellin, with its morning market and to find your own lunch in the town or the hotel (this is the only meal not included in the inclusive holiday package).

In the afternoon we will collect you and you can enjoy your 'Tour of the Region'.


Afternoon - Tours of the Region

A different tour each day which could typically include; visiting a working bull ranch, see the source of the Rio Mundo in the mountains of the Sierra de Alcaraz, visit castles and historic buildings, wine routes and the ancient town of Jumilla (or guided tours around some bodegas), visit prehistoric sites and cave paintings, see Castilla La Mancha's 'lake district' see the windmills of Don Quixote and La Mancha etc. You have the opportunity to let us know your preferences on the Booking Form and we always try to base our tours around individual tastes wherever possible. Even our local town has an interesting history dating back to the bronze age.
