Accommodation

Les 2 Gazelles ranch is an equestrian center with 20 boxes and saddlery and a guest house with eight rooms of 25 meter squared each. For a total immersion in the equestrian world, Ranch Les 2 Gazelles proposes to the trainees to be lodged and fed at the ranch. The guest house welcomes riders but also non-riders who accompany them, family, friends, and passing guests who wish to live for a few days at the rhythm of the ranch.

Ranch Les 2 Gazelles proposes a table of hosts refined with local colors. Guests can enjoy hearty breakfasts. They can also take their lunches and dinners together and in a convivial atmosphere. A small fishing port is one kilometer away from the ranch and offers fresh fish of very good quality. The chef also offers tajines, grilled meats, couscous, and other local specialties, as well as various desserts accompanied by mint tea.

The ranch has eight spacious rooms of 25 meters squared with all comforts and careful decoration, typical of the region. They are composed of two single beds or a large double bed with pillows, sheets, duvets, and small plaid (it is possible to add an extra bed). Each bedroom has a wardrobe, night tables, side table, and a large storage cabinet.

Each bedroom also has its own bathroom (5 meters squared), shower, washbasin, toilet, and storage. There is, of course, hot water. The guest house has communal areas, a very large dining room for group dinners, a tea room, a reading or relaxing room, a garden, and several outdoor terraces.

A wooded garden (carob trees, hibiscus, olive trees, etc.) oriented full west allows to enjoy the sunsets on the sea and to relax in the calm, the shade, or in the sun. During the day, you can enjoy a solarium on the terrace or your well-being and beauty area.

Program

Horse/Quad discovery riding course

This program allows non-riders to follow the three days of riding by quad. Horses and quads meet together at each picnic and bivouac. The trainee starts with a classic two-day training with a career or outdoor walk, your choice. For the next three days, the rider goes on an itinerary trail with accommodation in a guest house, in a hostel, or even a bivouac. On the last day, it will be possible to enjoy the beach on horseback or in a swimsuit, swimming pool, massages, or all!

On average, you will spend five hours of horseback riding per day (a minimum of four hours and a maximum of six hours). The "summer" route is more sporty, it requires a good physical condition and an experience of riding. It is possible to follow the three days by quad for non-cavaliers. Horses and quad meet at every picnic and bivouac, an ideal formula to share your holiday with friends or family.

Arrival, presentation of the ranch, horses, guides, rooms, evening meal, and spend the night at the ranch.

Day 2: Ranch

Horses

The cavalry is composed of about twenty horses, mares and geldings, barbs, Arabs-Barbs, and thoroughbred Arabs. The horses are steadfast, voluntary, and endearing horses. They are accustomed to the terrain; some are calm while others are more sporty. Some heavier horses are available for strong jumpers.

The Bearded Horse is a rustic breed of North Africa, crossed with Arabian thoroughbred during the 17th century, during the Arab invasions. Appreciated for its extreme resistance and endurance, the beard was used for a long time as a warhorse, especially by the formidable Tuareg tribe. Dull and full of energy, the beard easily learns and excels today in many disciplines: endurance, TREC, coupling, and equestrian excursion.

The ranch is located between Agadir and Sidi Ifni, on the wild coast, precisely between Aglou plage and Mirleft. It is only 300 meters from the beach.
