Driven Partridge & Duck shooting - Mallorca
Las Barracas in the south-east of Mallorca offers the most luxury and best Partridge & Duck shooting on the Island.
The Partridge Shooting Estate Las Barracas
Mallorca is one of the best known Holliday destinations in Europe – visited from guest from all over the world, offering spectacular landscapes, beautiful beaches and top rated luxury hotels and accommodations. But only few know that Mallorca also offers one of the best Partridge and Duck Shooting Estates in Spain. The Hunting Estate “Las Barracas", situated between Calviá and Andratx, comprise almost 1.000 hectares and offers magnificent views of the Mediterranean Sea and the Tramuntana mountains. The area’s unique terrain, climate and vegetation make it the ideal location for driven and walked-up partridge shooting between September and the following spring. During the shooting season this is the most temperate area in Mallorca, with average temperatures between 18º to 20ºC, mild autumn with evergreen countryside from October onwards, almond blossom in February, and long and warm sunny days and clear skies until May.
Our traditional driven partridge shoots are organized for groups of up to 10 guns, with an anticipated bag of 500 partridges per day over 5 drives. Each gun is provided with their own loader (double guns are used) and a “secretario”. The beaters team will ensure that an average of 4,000 partridges fly over the pegs each day, with varying levels of difficulty, height and speed, in line with the group’s ability. The Duck shooting is organized at 3 ponds at the Estate offering some very nice shoots at fast and high birds. The excellent team of professional gamekeepers, beaters, loaders, kitchen staff, etc. allows us to guarantee our guests unforgettable shooting days.
Our famous “tapas” and light refreshments served during the shoot, and a superb meal in the main house at the end of the day (worthy of a luxury restaurant), are the perfect culmination to this unforgettable shooting experience. The Lodge provides a huge collection of almost 30 different double or side by side shotguns in all calibers and sizes – so there is no need to bring your gun to Mallorca.
In Spring 2018 we have opened our new built "Las Barracas Country Lodge". Here we offer 14 comfortable and luxury rooms with bath en suite - well stocked bar and restaurant, 2 living rooms with fireplace - huge garden and pool. The perfect place to relaxe after a day of exhausting shooting.
During the non-shooting season the Lodge can be booked for luxury family holidays, weddings & formal parties as well as for company events and presentations.
