The Horse Riding Center
Vallecupa Horse Riding Center was born from our great passion for horses. We organize lessons and short tours both for beginners and experienced riders. Our horses and the safety of the western riding give the opportunity to beginners to start with a "trekking sampling" and learn to follow very long itineraries like the "Settimana della transumanza" (the Week of Transhumance) from Pescasseroli to Tavoliere delle Puglie.
Cooking and Products
If you are looking for an authentic contact with nature, with ancient tastes and genuine food, Vallecupa Holiday Farm and Horse Riding Center offers its fresh local products on which its simple and varied cooking is based. When your holidays will be over... you will preserve the memory of the peacefulness you have experienced among the green pastures and the high mountains, the walks in the snow-clad woods, the nights in front of the fireplace, the tastes of our cuisine. You can also bring home some "souvenirs" you will taste together with your friends! Thanks to the tradition and the link to the tastes of our land, we have become experts in cheese production. The grazing in the high-mountain pastures during the summer leads to the production of the best cow and sheep's milk, which is taken to valley and processed in the cheese factories according to traditional methods and in the respect of the national sanitary rules.
During your stay, you will have the opportunity to practice several activities. Here you are a few examples... we offer activities for all tastes!
Relax: sleeping, sunbathing in the fields, enjoying the silence and perfume of the mountains.
Tours (on foot, on horseback, and by mountain bike): to the mountain huts from June to September, in the woods to pick up mushrooms, along the trails for unexpected meetings with squirrels, deer, roe deer, and eagles... in the meadows where you will "touch" the starry sky in the nights of August, in the woods painted with the autumn colors, with snow rackets on your feet or on a sledge in the magic silence of the white winter.
