I have had several days with at El Despeñadero over the last few seasons and without exception they have been tremendous. Some fantastic venues for shooting and top class accommodation and hospitality on every occasion. I have days already booked with them for next season! First class in every way.
Now in my 3rd season with Dario Vallano (Cacerias Ibericas) and his team and every time has been an exceptional day with everything catered for, even the things you don't think of yourself. Great team from the office to the field with some of the most brilliant and challenging birds, in a beautiful estate. We adored it and couldn't recommend it more highly to anyone... Without any doubt one of the best driven shooting I have ever been and I have shot at many places in all corners of the UK and Spain.
I got in touch with Dario who runs with his father El Despeñadero estate shoot in Spain to ask a few questions as i was thinking of taking a day there. Dario instantly put my mind at ease so I booked. All I can say is that those partridges were the best I have shot at for a very long time. The accommotadion where we were was simply spectacular (Cigarral de las Mercedes) I would highly recommend taking a day or two at El Despeñadero estate, we took two. We come from US so we have already booked two more days for the next season.
Thanks you very much to Dario Vallano and his team, their hospitality and organisation was absolutely tremendous giving us such a memorable days. Their attention to detail and quailty of sporting birds is always out of this world. My guests and I were very impresssed with the way the company who has unrivalled access to some of the best shooting. Thank you much.
I have visited El Despenadero on numerous occasions, for me it is the dream destination for Spanish partridge shooting. It really can't be faulted from transport, accommodation, food and hospitality I would 100% recommend you visit.
I had the pleasure of shooting with Darío Vallano and his team this season again. They provided some very challenging birds, superb elevenses and the best hospitality I have ever seen. ¡Very much looking forward see you in Spain soon! George B.
Very sporting birds, great challenge. Some of my best shooting experiences in Spain with fast. Very well done boy's, see you in a couple on months!
I have been lucky enough to shoot this estate for 5 years and have got to know the wonderful family who run it to a degree of excellence that is rarely seen. Having been lucky enough to have shot a lot in Spain i can say that this is one of my favorite estates with fast, challenging birds unlike anything we get here in the UK. If you are looking for a new experience, great value and only a couple of hours away, i cannot recommend this estate strongly enough.
