Family friendly France... 


This year we visited the Basque Pyrenees as a family, riding with delightful hosts Sylvie and Emmanuel.

Their kind, happy horses, warmest of welcomes and the lush mountain vistas – not to mention surfing in Biarritz and the beaches of the Basque coast which were only a short drive away - made it a wonderful family holiday.
A great option for 2018 - or once the children are back at school, why not gather a few friends and visit yourself, for a short riding break?
Comfortable Chambre D’Hotes, lovely riding, delicious food and wine - a perfect pre-winter treat. Available on request until November (minimum 4 people)
