Rest Days and Other Activities

We offer guided riding every day of your bike holiday. Of course you are welcome to take a day off from biking whenever you feel like it. You may want to relax in and around the farmhouse or to explore the local area.

We can also arrange the following activities, either for a day off or to fit around your riding day.

Massage

Either Bethan or Arantxa can usually come to the farmhouse. They are both qualified masage therapists and very personable.

Walking

We can provide you with maps and suggested routes for walking in the area. There are some beautiful tracks which are inaccessible by bike but passable on foot. We can also arrange for an experienced and knowledgeable guide to take you on a guided half or full day trek.

Horse Riding

Horse riding is available in the nearby village of Trevélez. All standards of rider are catered for. The rides are in beautiful countryside and last from two hours to a full day. You may want to bring your own riding hat / helmet as most Spanish riders don't wear hard hats.

Skiing

In the winter / spring months downhill skiing is available at the resort of Sierra Nevada. You might like to add this to the beginning or end of your holiday. Closer to us is the cross-country ski area of Puerto de la Ragua where there are marked trails and equipment hire.

Visiting Granada or Málaga

We recommend that, if you would like to visit historic Granada or beautiful Málaga, you add a day or two to the beginning or end of your trip. We can help you with recommendations for places to stay in both cities. In Granada, we particularly recommend the lovely self-catering apartment, Casa de las Granadas, in the historic Albayzín quarter. There are buses between Granada (but not Málaga) and Bérchules, or we can arrange a taxi for you. Granada is also doable as a day trip during your stay. For more information see spain.info and andalucia.org web sites.

Relaxing

In the guest sitting room we have WiFi, magazines, board games and a speaker dock. There is good mobile reception at the farmhouse.

Beach

If you have your own hire car, there are several Mediterranean beaches within reach.
