"Relaxing & exciting all in one place"
In a word EVERYTHING 😁 The setting is fabulous, tranquil, relaxing & very good for the soul. And I went for the riding. As a huge animal lover it was perfect 👌 From Luca & Mario the hugely friendly sheep who wander the ranch at their leisure. Boris the cockerel & his harem of chickens, the cats & cute kittens, to Lenny 🐶 the adorable Croatian mountain dog, who patrols the ranch like canine security. But is like a huge teddybear 😘 who actually found me in the forest when I was a bit lost & took me back to the ranch. Forget Lassie, Lenny is a real hero 🌟 Not forgetting of course, the beautiful, well behaved horses, who were a joy to ride. The accommodation was fab too. Bruce, our host & ranch owner, is so laid back & easy going, he’s almost horizontal 😁 but runs the ranch impeccably! Nina & Johanna deserve a special mention as they were so helpful & friendly. I could go on but I think you’ve got the gist - Linden Tree Ranch is 5 star
