Joan / Catalonia

In the very midst of Empordà in a corner and dream of rest and enjoy the img_3498tranquility of a preserved environment. The relief of mild Terraprim around us and allows us to enjoy the holidays in nature, a few kilometers from the sea and the historic Old Catalonia. And if you want to know about our step by step you can enjoy rides and horseback riding for our region with accommodation in hotels and country houses. Located on the Pyrenees feet, facing the natural and wild reserve of the Illes Medes, our place will make you discover l'Empordà, his preserved nature, his hiking and walking roads. The multiple pleasures of the mountain and the country-side holidays. Holidays nature close to beach and Figueres, and not far from Girona and Barcelona.

At our place you have the ideal place for a horse riding holiday. We can offer our own horses, from pure Spanish to mixture arabian . Whether  you choose a gentle hack to take in the beautiful countryside, galloping in the vast open fields or cross-country. We also offer lessons to those who may not be so confident.

Whether on the plain, in the foothills or mountains, horses represent an original way of discovering this beautiful part of North west Catalonia. The out riding is  spectacular, we are happy to offer a couple of hours active hacking or a full day, through a selection of terrain. We have fields, hills and forest. It is possible to ride for hours without crossing a road, even then it will be a country lane where it is completely unusual to find anything other than the old tractor. We have found that our clients also enjoy passing through the local villages though, we have four within a ten-mile radius each with less than 150 habitants.

Below we will give you an example what your holiday could be like, but you and your family are free to decide which activity you prefer to do or even if you prefer to stay at Can Muní, chilling by the pool or enjoying some more horse riding! Personalize your holidays in Costa Brava!

Day 1. Welcome (Sunday)

We arrive at the rural village  in the afternoon. It is located in the heart of the Baix Empordà, in the middle of nature and hidden from passers-by. Our farmhouse with stone walls welcome you. Here you will meet the family and your guide. At dinner we will go over the week’s program, you will be told about the special characteristics of our horses. After dinner you will be given an introduction to the weeks programme with an opportunity for a one to one conversation designed to find every rider their perfect horse.

Day 2. Our medieval villages (Monday)

Today's destination is the Baix Empordà region, passing through medieval villages such as Camallera, Sant Jordi Desvalls and Gauses. We will cross gorgeous beech and holm oak forests, and we will be able to see the vineyards near Sant Jordi. We will go through Gauses, with its beautiful medieval church from the 15th Century. This morning we will enjoy nice gallops, some trots and walks.

Cycling tour! (Optional) Additionally you will have the chance to go for an easy afternoon ride around Can Muni. Depending on the ages, we can adapt the tour to suit your family. We will ride through crops and fields, woods and villages to discover the fantastic inland of Costa Brava.

Day 3. Let’s gallop! (Tuesday)

Today we propose to ride in the afternoon, setting towards the village of Verges, going pass the villages of Las Olivas, Garrigolas and, finally, Verges. Along the way we will be able to enjoy long gallops. We will see the plain part of this area, following in the distance the path of the Fluvia River.

Prehistorical caves in Serinyà (morning). (Optional) The Prehistorical caves of Serinyà are a great opportunity to discover our furthest past in a natural environment. The population who lived here can be differentiated roughly into three periods: the preneandertals, then Neanderthals (hunters and therefore nomads) and finally modern humans (Homo sapiens sapiens) who already used tools worked with flint and bone ornaments.

Day 4. Following the river bend (Wednesday)

Today is going to be a both longer and faster day. We will go down to the village of Colomers, where we will visit a typically medieval village, with its walls, its church and its paved streets. We will cross the Fluvia River and, galloping along the river, we will head to Sant Jordi Desvalls, where we will also see its narrow streets. Crossing fairy tale’s forests, we will arrive at Llampaies and we will enjoy a new gallop on the way back home.

Girona (optional) After lunch we offer you the opportunity to drive you to visit Girona. The capital of the region, this little city has wonderful shady streets, beautiful architecture, the widest gothic cathedral in Europe and great shopping.

Day 5. Northern villages (Thursday)

Together with the horses, we will have a chance to visit some of the northern villages, like Saus o Vilaür. We will see the church of Saus, the olive groves that surround the village and we will enjoy the views of the Pyrenees in the distance.

Kayaking/canoeing (morning)! (Optional) We will drive you to the Ter River in the afternoon to enjoy a family trip by kayak along the river. We will offer you different trips depending on the age of the kids and your interests.

Day 6. TO VILADAMAT

Today we will start our riding day going down to Garrigoles up until Viladamat. From there we will be able to enjoy beautiful views over the beach of Sant Martí d’Empúries in Sant Pere Pescador. We will come back through the village of Palauborrell.

Day 7. The best views (Saturday)

Today we will have the opportunity to enjoy the outstanding views from the Puig Segalar, amazing views over the Roses Bay, the Pyrenees and the Fluvia River bend. A quite active farewell day!

The coastline walk (optional) Today, we have the opportunity to discover the Baix Empordà, with a guided walk. La Costa Brava, and Baix Empordà, is an ideal place for hiking and walking. Today we are going from Calella de Palafrugell to Palamós, following the
