Arrival at the farm

Today you’ll drive off the beaten track via a dirt road to arrive at a working cork farm, where you’ll be spending the next three nights. Take the afternoon to relax, before hitting the biking trails tomorrow. The estate is the perfect hideaway allowing you to combine nature with your more active tendencies. The family who owns the farm serves tapas in their own restaurant, allowing you to fill up ready for tomorrow’s exertions.

After a hearty breakfast you will jump on your bikes and hit one of four tracks which have been set out on the farm grounds, each track is suitable for different ability levels and moods. You can also choose to walk one of the tracks if you prefer. After all the effort, head back to the farmhouse and the pool for a refreshing dip.
