The setting of the estate is incomparable for partridge shooting. It is formed by very undulating and abrupt mountains which provide some of the most challenging partridges in Spain. The partridges are flushed off high hills to produce some stunning bird flights. The changing terrain and topography are by themselves, able to offer a great variety of drives ensuring top quality days of partridge shooting. So great is the movement of the landscape and habitat that the range of drives is unlimited. Actually we have more than 50 different drives. Ventosilla's drives have tested the mettle of history's big shots: kings, prime ministers, Edwardian peers, shooting legends. Ventosilla is a truly spectacular shoot.
Location: Ventosilla is 94 km. away from Madrid and only 20 km. away from the Imperial city of Toledo. The weather is generally pleasant. We have poor rain which usually does not last more than one day.
About your host at Ventosilla Shoot: Antonio Cavero Mitjans, Host. "Ventosilla", with thousands of wild hectares is the most emblematic partridge shooting estate in Spain. The first drive in Spain took place at "Ventosilla" in 1880, organised by our great-grandfather the Duke of Santoña with HRM King Alfonso XII. The Count of Teba, our grandfather continued to hold shoots in the same grand style to the present day. Inspired by his love of the sport and the estate, we- the grandsons- have decided to maintain the tradition on this extraordinary property, which is located in one of the most beautiful landscapes of Toledo, on the banks of the river Tajo. Our clients, come to "Ventosilla" in search of having memorable shooting days with us, and thanks to a high sporting game, beautiful scenery, excellent lunches, a superb wine list, luxurious accommodation, good organisation and a friendly family run atmosphere, they get exactly that.

After the "Taco" we have another two partridge drives, and we are off for afternoon tea and to get ready for drinks and a formal dinner.
