A world of horses in a beautiful region of southern France - a place to ride, relax, photograph and enjoy magical trails, medieval villages and the best of French cuisine. Gwladys and Jeremy invite you to stay with them on their welcoming farm, the Mas de Peyrelongue, where they hope to share their lives with you. Riders and non-riders are welcome to come and enjoy the traditional French lifestyle and the farm's relaxing surroundings. The programmes here have been tailored to suit those who don't feel like joining a more intensive, weeklong riding break and would prefer a relaxed holiday with a few hours of riding each day.
The horses, ponies and donkeys live out in spacious paddocks across their fifty hectare property - a stay here is also a chance to share in the lives of the horses. Jeremy and Gwladys have been awarded a certification for equestrian wellbeing by the French Horse Riding Federation. They take particular care in ensuring their horses' physical aptitudes, motivation and individual characters are preserved through the care and daily routines they receive. Gwladys is a professional teacher and long-distance rider who has clocked up more than 8000km riding alone through Central America, North Africa and Europe. Jeremy is a professional equine photographer, author and filmmaker - he loves to observe horses and nature and hopes to promote the diversity of horse breeds worldwide. He is also a keen cook, a real advantage to guests!
The farm comprises several buildings dating back to the late 19th and early 20th century, representing the typical architecture of the region. The guesthouse was renovated in 2019 and includes a cosy lounge, traditional dining room and fireplace. There are three double rooms for guests which share a brand new shower room (with two showers and a separate toilet). Guests are also able to enjoy the scenic gardens, large swimming pool and wooden terrace. Your hosts serve homemade French cuisine using fresh and locally sourced produce - the region is famed for its food such as truffles, saffron and a range of delicious meats and cheeses.
Gwladys and Jeremy offer a riding retreat, a short stay and also welcome non-riders. The area is lovely for hikers who can access many routes directly from the property whilst the swimming pool is a fantastic place to unwind in the warmer months. The farm is well located amongst some of France's most beautiful villages and great sightseeing visits and gourmet meals are included, from Figeac to Rocamadour and beyond. Ride, relax and experience some of the best that France has to offer!
