Monti and Mare Trail

Ride Overview

The route of the Monti and Mare trail offers the best of horseback riding in Sardinia, taking you through all of the varied landscape of the island on confident and fine Anglo-Arabians. The comfort and hospitality of the inn and stable welcomes you each day, while the route you follow on horseback is progressive and takes you over the mountains to the coast through areas that are otherwise untouched by tourism. In this way the trip is a combination of a stationary stay, where you do not have to move your luggage each night, but by leaving the horses at different points you see the greatest amount of country possible.  A love of and commitment to horses and equestrianism runs deep here, as horses graze on the grounds of the inn owned by a 5th generation horseman. The hospitality allows you to fully relax and enjoy generous and delicious Sardinian meals, and the daily riding treks offer adventure with both exciting riding and the fascinating surroundings of this intriguing island.

Accommodations & Food

The inn and stable is your home for the week, with comfortable rooms and horses grazing on the lawn. Rooms are in bungalows or in the main guest house and each has an ensuite bathroom. There is a pool and hot tub. Breakfast is buffet style and eaten on the terraces by the dining room and dinner is served in the dining room at 8pm each evening. Food is savory and generous, with full 4 course meals of traditional Sardinian fare each night, and wine from the property is available. All drinks, including bottled water, are extra. Lunches are either at the hotel or picnic style along the route and offer more opportunities to sample delicious local foods.
