Casa La Pedrera Activity Centre
Some visitors may already be aware of Casa La Pedrera Activity Centre. This is because the villa was featured on the popular British TV series Grand Designs Abroad. The centre initially only offered quad bike tours. However, as its popularity grew, the owners decided to add a variety of activities favoured by visiting holidaymakers and local residents alike. Casa La Pedrera is located between the lake and village of Vistabella. The village is within walking distance from the centre so visitors have a number of cafes, bars and restaurants in which to enjoy drinks or a meal.

At Casa La Pedrera Activity Centre the surrounding countryside offers perfect terrain for horses. A variety of hacks can be enjoyed along the lake's nature trails for riders as young as 3 years. Young children need to be accompanied by an adult when riding the trails, and indeed, family hacks are encouraged. More experienced riders can trot and canter in the riding school ring and will have the chance to trot on the trails. Riding lessons are available for all experience levels. The school has 3 adorable Shetland ponies for kids rides and birthday party packages.
Air Rifles & Archery
At Casa La Pedrera Activity Centre there are shooting ranges for practising both air rifle and archery. These can be enjoyed individually or as a discounted combo pack. For safety reasons, on both ranges the instructor's word is final. They will asses your abilities and advise on stance and the correct way to hold, aim and shoot the air rifles and archery bows. Younger children assisted by an adult may be allowed to load and fire the air rifles at your instructor's discretion.
Be prepared to get muddy and have loads of fun in the sun on this seasonal activity. The mud around the lake is predominantly clay so you can cover yourself from head to toe for a cheap spa experience. The kayaking is not guided but an instructor will show you the basics before you head out on the lake. Single, double and triple kayaks or canoes are available, and life jackets provided.
