Cher Cédric. Je te remercie pour ta gentillese et ton hospitalité pour ma randonnée à cheval dans le Luberon avec toi. Chaque journée passée dans le Luberon a été une joie. Je me souviendrai toujours de ces moments passés avec toi et avec mon cheval. J'étais déjà venue pour faire la randonnée à cheval du Luberon à la Camargue, je l'ai faite deux fois, j'espère revenir bientôt pour découvrir une autre randonnée en Provence avec vous. Merci de transmetre toutes mes amitiés à toute l'équipe. Je suis amoureuse de la Provence ! Je vous envoie quelques photos souvenirs du Luberon. Bises, Sachi.

La semaine dernière j'ai eu un grand plaisir de passer une semaine au Mas de Recaute et de faire le séjour Cheval & Nature en Luberon. Mon guide, Paul, m'a emmené sur des randonnées magiques à travers le Luberon. Il est plein de connaissances sur la Provence et son histoire. Notre chef nous a préparé d'excellents repas, comme le canard grillé à la cheminée, la ratatouille provencale, sa tapenade maison, et de superbes salades. Pierre nous a préparé des pique-niques fabuleux. Merci de m'avoir emmené découvrir le marché de Lourmarin. Après les diners, je me sentais comme faisant partie de l'équipe, dansant, chantant avec tout le monde ! Le meilleur des services de la part d'une équipe professionnelle. Je suis décidée à revenir pour faire la randonnée à cheval du Luberon à la Camargue !

René et Taren (USA)

Notre semaine de randonnée à cheval dans le Luberon, Cheval & Nature, a été magique et nous laisse une multitude de souvenirs inoubliables. Cette randonnée avec l'équipe Cap Rando nous a apporté beaucoup plus que ce que nous attendions et nous vous remercions. Merci beaucoup !
