What you'll do

After a welcome coffee to our XV century old house, we'll go downstairs to the stables to brush and saddle up the horses, and then we'll ride for about two hours across the silent, ancient landscape of Segarra, the Catalan Tuscany, on our way to some small medieval Catalan village. Wheat and barley fields, organic wineyards, old almond and olive trees, hills and slopes furrowed by ancient dry stone walls and incredible views will melt before your sight. Don’t worry if you’ve never ridden before, you'll be a small group so we will be on hand to help, instruct and support you. After riding you can explore our small village and go up to the XI century watchtower to see the amazing views. Then we will cook and share a traditional paella in our garden made with homegrown and very local products, while we talk about life and passions. And, from May to October, you can also swim in our natural pool. So don't miss your swimsuit!

Meet your Host, David

I'm an expert Catalan equestrian guide and beekeeper, lover of history and nature. I was born and grew up in Barcelona, but I spent all summers of my childhood in a small village with my grandpas, where I learnt a lot about animals and nature. That's why fifteen years ago I decided to follow my heart and move to a medieval manor house in Segarra region to spend all my time to be with horses and farmers, which have always been my passion. Now I'd like to share my dream came true with you all.

What an amazing experience! David provided a unique and delightful time. He thoroughly enjoys sharing his piece of heaven on earth and provides historical information and local insights as well. His horses are trusty and good for all levels of riders.

Una de las mejores experiencias de mi vida!! No puedo explicarlo de otra manera. David es una persona espectacular y super atento. Desde que llegas, el lugar es simplemente mágico. Los caballos son super bien portados, muy buenos y tranquilos (no tienes que tener experiencia). Recomiendo esta experiencia 100%, definitivamente el día que regrese, lo haría nuevamente. La amé!

I love everything about it. It was surprising how the food David cooked were so delicious. By that I mean, better than many restaurants I tried in Barcelona. It’s already a plus plus. All the horses are so lovely and calm so no needs to worry even if you’re first time rider. I definitely will come back and booked it again, bring my friends and family along obviously! They need to join this experience no other options haha

Given all of the other five star reviews, I thought there’s no way this can live up to my high expectations. I was wrong. It exceeded them and there is literally not one thing I could think of that would make this better. David is a funny, kind, attentive host and spending the day with him felt like visiting an old friend. His horses are very well trained and fun to ride, and the views and trails are out of this world. His house is spectacular and feels like you're visiting a piece of history out of a museum. The lunch, wine, and honey were all perfect. If you're reading this then just do yourself a favour and book because you won't regret it.

This experience was my favorite part of traveling to Spain. David was so friendly and welcoming. He taught us about caring for horses, invited us into his home for a meal, let us use his backyard pool and garden as if it was our own. He talked about history in Spain, Europe as a whole, and even American history. It exceeded my expectations, and so did his paella!
