We stayed at the ranch for a week with our young family, and from the moment we arrived we were made to feel at home. Nothing is too much trouble, the service is excellent, and the children were free to play around the ranch (subject to a couple of safety rules!), which freed up some grown up time.
The scenery is spectacular, and if you don't fancy the horseriding (which is fantastic, and caters for all levels) you can go off hiking / biking / running / fishing / swimming.
The food is all home cooked and of a great quality. The bar is open, and excellent wines are served with lunch and dinner.
We had a fabulous time, felt totally relaxed at the ranch, and hope to go back some day.
