Programme intro


Saturday: Meeting at 9 am at the equestrian center of Cap Rando, 250 meters from your accommodation. Attribution of your horse, preparation, setting in the saddle in career and walk of 1 hour at the foot of the Luberon. At noon, we take you by minibus to Lourmarin, one of the most beautiful villages in France. You can have lunch in the village, in a bistro or a restaurant and then wander in the village before your guide will pick you up to take you back to the equestrian center. Departure for 2 hours of riding in the valleys of the Luberon. You can then enjoy your accommodation, its indoor pool, jacuzzi, sauna, insulation box ... Relaxation time before the aperitif based on homemade wines and a provencal dinner.

Sunday: Departure for a day of riding to the banks of the Durance or on the peaks of the Luberon (your choice). The day at the edge of Durance allows faster speeds, riding between hills and river, along orchards of olive trees, vineyards, almond trees, apricot trees, peach trees, asparagus fields ... This territory is the garden of France ! Picnic on the banks of the Durance where you can see many birds, including the majestic gray heron ... and sometimes beavers. The day to the peaks of the Luberon is more rugged and therefore slower but with wilder landscapes with pine forests, Provencal scrubland, at the foot of cliffs sheltering many birds of prey. Picnic in a beautiful cedar forest. Return to the equestrian center of Cap Rando around 16:30. Transfer to La Roque d'Anthéron bus station.
