If like me you have children who are mad about horses, then a riding holiday in France is something which you may wish to consider planning for next year. For many years we as a family would organize a trip to the south of France so that my daughter could take part in a riding holiday in one of the most beautiful regions of the country.
One year we all descended on the Chateau de Laumière, which is in the Causse de Limogne. This superb chateau offers everything you would ever need in the way of luxuries and this includes a really lovely swimming pool. We had a lovely week here and I must say some of the best riding experiences ever. The food was exceptionally good and the whole ambiance of the place was absolutely delightful.
Riding holidays have become very popular in France with more and more people taking some time out to enjoy the great outdoors on horseback. This has meant that many more riding holiday options are available these days. Finding a nice place to visit is really quite simple as all you have to do is go on the Internet to find the perfect location to suit you.
Another region of France where organised riding holidays are out of this world is the Dordogne. Not only is the region spectacularly beautiful with landscapes and riding trails that seem to go on forever, but the food is superb too. There are some splendid locations to choose from in the most exquisite settings imaginable. The best part about planning a holiday like this is that the whole family can join in the fun, even if not everyone is into the riding side of things. This is because these locations are very well equipped with other activities that members of a family can do instead of riding. Most of them have swimming pools, tennis courts and they are all located close to areas of immense interest. This means that exploring the region is a great adventure that the whole family can enjoy.
I grew up in the south of France, surrounded by beautiful French horses and love to revisit the area as often as I possibly can. I am always pleased to hear how well the riding establishments are doing with visitors coming from all over the world to enjoy the riding holidays that are organized in the region.
Riding holidays in France are extremely well organized which means that the days are very well planned. Big hearty breakfasts followed by some wonderful treks on horseback through gorgeous the country side means a full morning of sheer delight for anyone who is a horse enthusiast. Lunchtimes as you would expect in France, are not to be taken lightly and most of these organized holidays offer their guests wonderful meals both at lunchtime and in the evenings. With such a marvellous choice of places to choose from, it is hardly any wonder that riding holidays in France are getting more popular every passing year.
