Rest Days & Other Activities


We offer guided mountain biking every day of your trtip. You are welcome to take a day off from riding whenever you feel like it. You may want to relax at the farmhouse, or to explore the local area.

We can also arrange the following activities, either for a day off, or to fit around your riding day.


Arantxa, a qualified massage therapist, can come to the farmhouse, to provide the ideal massage for the slightly sore mountain biker. 


We can provide you with maps and suggested routes for walking. There are some beautiful tracks which are inaccessible by bike but passable on foot. We can also arrange for an experienced and knowledgeable guide to take you on a guided half or full day trek.

Horse Riding

Horse riding is available just down the mountain, at our local stables. The horses are of very high quality. A two hour ride costs €30.

Padel Tennis

Bérchules has a new padel tennis court, which we can book for you. We have racquets and balls for you to use.


In the winter / spring months downhill skiing is available at the resort of Sierra Nevada. You might like to add this to the beginning or end of your holiday.

Visiting Granada or Málaga

We recommend that, if you would like to visit historic Granada or beautiful Málaga, you add a day or two to the beginning or end of your trip. We can help you with recommendations for places to stay in both cities. There are buses between Granada (but not Málaga) and Bérchules, or we can arrange a taxi for you. Granada is also doable as a day trip during your stay. For more information see and web sites.


In the guest sitting room we have WiFi, magazines and board games. There is good mobile reception at the farmhouse.


If you have your own hire car, there are several Mediterranean beaches within reach.
