Kouvaras Equestrian Club – Family friendly activities
Located in the area of Kouvaras, approximately a 30-40 minute drive from the centre of Athens the Kouvaras Equestrian Club is a perfect retreat for horse and nature lovers. Last Sunday together with my fellow travel bloggers of Travel Bloggers Greece we were invited to spend a family day at the Club’s premises.
We starter our noon enjoying a cup of coffee and soaking in the sun’s rays while the children happily ran around the spacious grass area which is also equipped with two large inflatable bouncers, a trampoline, a separate playground, a carousel and a children’s corner for crafts and play. There is also a popcorn machine and a waffle maker for the little friends to enjoy some delicious snacks.
The Kouvaras Equestrian Club is also a great place to host children parties and other events such as baptisms and weddings. There is plenty of private parking space available on the premises. The indoor seating capacity fits up to 250 people and the outdoor capacity is for 1,000 people.
The equestrian centre is fully equipped to organize and host show-jumping and dressage competitions. It also offers riding lessons for all ages and levels, from a beginner to a more experienced rider.
Kids riding is one of the highlights here as children can either take a guided horse ride which costs €6 and is suitable for children of ages 4-15 years old or learn to horse ride on a more professional level.
Horse riding lessons are available for children from 7 years old and come in various packages starting from €15 for a half hour lesson or €120 Euro for 10 lessons, half an hour each. To receive more information or to book an appointment you may call on +30 6940732686.
A friendly farm experience
Kouvaras Equestrian Club is not only home to beautiful horses but to other animals too. Here you can find special friendly farm animals such as mini goats, mini bull, mini donkeys, falabella ponies, ducks, chickens, alpaca and even wallabies.
Food and drinks at the Club House
The Club House which is located on the premises has both indoor and outdoor seating. For those who wish to have a coffee or a small snack can do so in one of the comfortable outdoor sofas and armchairs which are set on the grass, or for a more formal meal there is a designated restaurant area. The Club House is ideal for all seasons, in winter you can sit next to the cozy fireplace and enjoy lunch, dinner or a drink.
We had lunch at the Club House after the kids finished with their riding activities. There is a selection of sandwiches, finger food, pasta, meats and burgers. Something for all tastes.
Nature is important and especially for children to learn how to grow up around animals. The Kouvaras Equestrian Club offers exactly that, a place close to Athens where the whole family can retreat in a tranquil and safe environment. We had a wonderful day at the club, the kids loved it and we did too. Have you been to the Kouvaras Equestrian Club?
