THE DRIVES & THE SHOOTING
The setting of the estate is incomparable for partridge shooting. It is formed by very undulating and abrupt mountains which provide some of the most challenging partridges in Spain. The partridges are flushed off high hills to produce some stunning bird flights. The changing terrain and topography are by themselves, able to offer a great variety of drives ensuring top quality days of partridge shooting. So great is the movement of the landscape and habitat that the range of drives is unlimited. Actually we have more than 50 different drives. Ventosilla's drives have tested the mettle of history's big shots: kings, prime ministers, Edwardian peers, shooting legends. Ventosilla is a truly spectacular shoot.
Guests meet for breakfast at 9:00h, and then leave the estate home for shooting. We start with three drives, after which we have a break for the "Taco" (picnic) that depending on weather conditions, we have at the borders of Lake Castejon, or in the shooting lodge positioned at the top of a hill, from which you have magnificent views of the estate. After the "Taco" we have another two drives, and we are off for afternoon tea and to get ready for drinks and a formal dinner. Dinner is served in the dining room before resuming the afternoon drives. If guests require a different program we can tailor the schedule to fit our guests` requirements. We guarantee you will have unforgettable memories of your stay with us.
Season starts on October 1st and ends on February 28th. When the hunting season is over Ventosilla is available for Bird-watching groups in the borders of the marshes of the Lake Castrejon as well as any other corporate activities.
