Our team

For more then 30 years, Jean-Paul and myself-Annabella have organised, with great pleasure, riding holidays from our hotel, the “Domaine des Garennes”. Our hotel is in the South of France at the meeting point between Dordogne, Lot and Corrèze.

The regular team running our establishment now includes myself, Annabella and Isabelle. I originally came from the Netherlands, Isabelle is from Belgium and has been with us since 2002. Jean-Paul passed away in 2014.

Isabelle is in charge of the kitchen and prepares delicious meals for our guests. I lead the rides, both the rides starting and finishing at the hotel and also the trail rides.

Your holiday

Most of our guests come for the trail or star rides. Non riding guests are free to book with family or friends in one of the cottages on the domaine. You can also have a half or full board in the guesthouse and enjoy everything we have to offer. And of course you can always sign in for a horseback ride while you’re staying with us. Riding is available most days.

During your stay you you are free to enjoy the swimming pool, the two squash courts and tennis courts at no extra cost. There is also ‘jeu de boules’. Furthermore there is much to discover in the area. And, of course, you can always relax or read a good book.

A special place

over-ons-in-kruiwagenThere is a good chance you will meet one of our regular guests during your stay. We often find that our guests return year after year because they feel at home at Domaine des Garennes. They tell us we have a very special place because of the combination of good food, reliable horses, beautiful tours, great hospitality and a good atmosphere.
