GUEST REVIEWS
Anaïs - Avril 2021

L'accueil était très chaleureux. Cheval très sympa, aucun problème. Sellerie western confortable. Bien encadrées par Didier, en sécurité. Logement atypique et pittoresque en plein nature. Nous avons été satisfait des services de Cap Rando, de la rapidité suite à notre demande. Nous avons passé un très bon séjour et le recommanderons sans aucun doute vos services !
