We have exclusive access to the El Molino Blanco Estate which is located 50 minutes drive south from the centre of Madrid in the province of Toledo. The estate has over 2,700 acres of prime shooting ground, and has looked after some of the most prestigious European guns.

The topography is unusual as the estate boasts deep valleys, providing exciting and challenging shooting. The vegetation consists of thick centenary oak trees that offer plenty of shelter to the partridges all year long. The shoot prides its self on produce the highest of quality partridges to shoot and hospitality that is second to none. With more than 15 drives each shoot can be tailor made to the individual party attending, depending on what they want.

Our hunts are usually arranged for 4 – 8 guns with average bags of 600 birds per hunting day for our general program which includes two hunting days. Typically a day would consist of four drives. After the second drive a delicious snack or “taco” is served. Once the fourth drive is over, lunch will take place in our cozy lodge. During the hunt, each guest will have a loader and a “secretario” and after every drive the hunters will experience with astonishment how the dogs retrieve the partridges.

Accommodation on the estate is situated in the heart of the estate with all the amenities and best possible service. An outstanding variety of traditional Spanish dishes are available to choose from, accompanied by a great selection of Spanish wine. The house has a big living room with an open fire place to relax and tell stories about the days shooting.
