I felt so welcomed at French Riding Holidays, particularly as I was travelling on my own. There is a warm family ambiance, particularly as staff and guests sit down to eat together three times a day so we have lovely conversations around the dining table. The food was absolutely delicious due to the continual hard work of Louise, Karen and Anne (and Derek the night of the legendary roast dinner) and there is a great swimming pool to relax in at the end of the day
All of which would make a fabulous holiday alone but of course here you also have the pleasure of riding every day. The scenery that you ride through is absolutely breathtaking with panoramic vistas of rolling French countryside as far as the eye can see. The horses are keen and forward-going so you can enjoy lots of lovely fast canters and even gallops but also bond with them by helping to look after them every day if you so wish. Derek is also great at giving instruction and so I felt my riding improved by leaps and bounds over the course of the time I was there.
I have never holidayed in the same place twice before but I loved it so much I am already planning my next trip!
