El Rancho Criollo offers exciting rides in the unspoiled nature of the French Ardennes for horse lovers and riders.

Also for unexperienced people who would like to ride or have a first acquaintance with horses we have options to choose.

Our criollos, mestizos and Argentine ranch horses are reliable and patient.

We can arrange a tailor-made stay for clubs, companies and families.

For those who do not want to go horse-riding there is adventure enough like for instance walking, riding quad or segway, canoeing, climbing or mountain biking.

Just 70 kilometers from Charleroi/Brussels South airport or 350 kilometers from Calais you will find El Rancho Criollo surrounded by lakes, hills, forest and plains.
