Meals provided

Breakfast

We provide a breakfast of cereals, coffee, tea and toast. If you prefer something different, there are 2 supermarkets and a bakers within 250m of the house. Their opening times are normally 10am-2pm and 5pm-8pm. We will provide honey throughout the week from our own bee hives and maybe fresh eggs, depending upon our chickens laying.

Dinner

On two of the evenings during the week you are invited to have dinner with us in our house. We enjoy this very much because it gives everybody the chance to get to know each other a bit better and perhaps relive the flying and adventures of the day.

It is like a family dinner, which in Spain is a very important part of the culture. The dishes depend on which ingredients are in season, most are traditionally Spanish and are more what a family would eat at home every day rather than what you are likely to find in a restaurant. If you have special dietary requirements or there is something you do not eat please let us know.

See our Eating in Piedrahita section for more details.

Basic 'Flying Only' Service

During the most popular weeks when the house is full we will add a further 8 'flying only' places. During these weeks, we will use two buses to accommodate the extra pilots, this will enable us to offer an improved retrieve service for all pilots.

The basic service will be 'flying only', without accommodation, breakfast or evening meals at a reduced price.

We can help you arrange your local accommodation. For groups we can organize another house or we can assist individuals with hotel reservations. For those who prefer a higher standard of hotel accommodation, we now have an agreement with a 4* hotel in El Barco at almost 50% discount for our clients. The latter is an excellent option for those coming with non flying partners and a hire car.
