Town Stay Riding Holidays
Budget Horse Riding Holidays in the South of Spain
Can't think of anything better than horse riding in the mountains of sunny Spain but have a limited budget for your holiday?
Town stay riding holidays are the perfect choice for horse lovers who want to stay close to the Spanish town of Orgiva. On a town stay holiday you have the option to be fully catered for during your stay. We offer riding packages with simple accommodation on a room only or full board basis. If you chose to stay on a full board basis you will enjoy a Spanish breakfast with tostada (Spanish toast), fresh orange juice and tea/coffee each morning and a three course lunch and evening meal served each day (starter, main course and desert).
For lunch & dinner guests can choose from three dishes which change daily and always include a vegetarian option. If you plan to be out horse riding or exploring the many local sights then a packed lunch can be made for you in place of the sit down lunch. Special dietary requirements can be catered for with advance notice. Guests who would prefer to explore other eating options in & around the town can stay on a room only basis.
The accommodation is located close to Orgiva, a traditional Alpujarran town dubbed “the gateway of the Alpujarras”. The town centre is a five minute walk from the accommodation where you will find bars, restaurants and shops. Throughout the year the town hosts several cultural events including its annual feria (fair) in September with traditional music and activities.
There are regular flamenco & musical events, fiestas, local produce markets and Christmas and Easter celebrations throughout the year. The location of the accommodation allows guests without a car to be mobile as both the town and riding centre are easily accessible by foot. The riding centre is approximately 10 minutes walk from the accommodation. The bus stop is close by with daily buses to Granada, the coast and Malaga/Granada airports. Buses run from Orgiva to surrounding villages so you can explore the area. During the summer months of July & August an outdoor pool is open to the public (located directly opposite the accommodation)
The accommodation has clean and comfortable rooms each with a private bathroom and heating/air conditioning. Single occupancy rooms, double/twin rooms, triple rooms and quadruple rooms are available. Each room has WiFi and a television. For a small additional cost you can upgrade to a room with a private outdoor terrace with mountain views (Please let us know at the time of booking if you wish to upgrade). Please note that there are no self catering facilities in the rooms.
We have not included Private car transfers in the package prices. The riding centre is just a ten minute walk away. However, If you would like to add the shuttle service to your package please let us know at the time of booking and it can be arranged for an additional fee.
Package prices are based on room only rates. If you would like to add full board to your stay this can be arranged. The price for full board is an additional €30 per person per day.
You can reach Pegasus Riding Centre on foot via a pleasant walk along the edge of Orgiva through a eucalyptus forest & picnic area or via a beautiful walk along the fringe of the town . It takes approximately ten minutes to get to the riding centre. There is a lovely little open air bar in the forest should you want to stop for a drink on the way. If you have your own car the riding centre is just a five minute drive away. A public car park with free parking is located close to the accommodation.
Our Town stay holidays offer incredible value for money. As always, our highly flexible riding packages are tailored to you. We keep trek groups small so you will never find yourself trailing behind an endless line of horses nose to tail. There will never be more than five riders on a trek at one time, ensuring maximum safety and a personal touch. All abilities are catered for and we will match you with suitable horses based on the information you provide. You may want to focus on improving your riding in the arena or maybe you want to enjoy a series of treks in the mountains. We will listen to you and together we will create your perfect riding holiday. We offer a range of riding packages & aim to make your time here as enjoyable as possible. We cater for individuals, small groups, couples & families.
