Our stable "El Refugio" at the lagoon of La Mata exists since more than 30 years.
  • Away from hustle and bustle, in the nature reserve of the salt lagoons of La Mata and Torrevieja, just 1.5 km from the sea and the vast dunes.
  • The sandy beach is almost 15 kilometers long and 50 meters wide; the sea is clean, there are no stones, very few algae or annoying sea creatures.
  • You stay in spacious rooms with shower and toilet, directly above the stables with a great view over the lagoon.
  • Our chef will prepare an extensive breakfast for you every morning and a dinner menu in the evening - vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free or other adaptations are happily made on demand.
  • You can access our free W-LAN in the dining room and on the covered terrace.
  • About 50 horses "ready to ride" live on our site, in the stables and paddocks: Cruzados, Hispano-Arab, Lusitanos, a Frisian mare and even a donkey.
  • We are a state-approved registered horse farm for PRE, sale of PRE, Cruzados, Hispo-Arabs and Lusitano horses. We have good contacts with other reputable breeders of our region so we can always assist you in buying a Spanish horse.
  • If you fall in love with one of our horses and want to take it with you: No problem, we will organize the transport and all the necessary shipping documents.
  • In addition to our horses, a lot of other animals have found a retreat here and they almost form a small zoo: dogs, cats, sheep, goats, wild sheep, turtles, iguanas, chickens, parrots, a peacock and all sorts of different birds.
Enjoy your holidays in a familiar atmosphere!
