The history of Rancho Grande goes back to the year 1964, where the idea of offering horse rides in this beautiful area of the North of Mallorca was born. The founders started Rancho with just 2 horses and a Mule offering riding excursions followed with BBQ by the fire place and guitar music. As the reputation of The Ranches outstanding service, simplicity and warmth grew through the years, so did its facilities. The amount of horses grew from 2 to nearly 100 all grown and bred in the farm. As well Rancho Grande has moved over from its first location in Puerto Pollenca to more spacious finca in Son Serra De Marina. The family of Martorell is sticking to their traditions already in the third generation. Either you want to go for a horse ride, walk a pony, see the mini zoo or just enjoy the children playing outdoors, when you visit the ranch you are truly a guest in their house.

Rancho Grande has a long history behind. The story of the Ranch and the Cowboys started in Puerto Pollenca more than 50 years ago in one young family totally in love with each other and their horses. Their love to these animals made them start to breed horses, so in a few years their herd doubled and trippled. They started with the horseriding excursions for the toursits in the middle 50´s, followed by BBQ evenings in their Ranch by the fire place and guitar music. Nowadays the Ranch is situated in Son Serra de Marina, and their horse family has grown till more than a 100 horses. The nature and the animals, especially the horses, were, are and will be their passion, that they want to share with everyone who visits the Ranch.
