Had a fantastic holiday with Brett and Jo, shredding the super fun local trails. Not to forget the delicious food... no one could ever be hungry!!! Couldn’t have asked for a more fun group. Already looking forward to our return trip. Will be bringing the big bike next time! Thanks Brett , Jo & Sean for making it an epic holiday. ?

Spot on week! Brett, Jo and Shaun were fantastic hosts and incredibly warm and welcoming. Great variety of trails, quick uplift, and a rapid guide to show us the best lines and biggest hucks.
Awesome feel to the villa, more like going and staying with your pal and his family than a package holiday.

What a fun trip! Brett collected us from the airport hassle free, then spent the whole drive to the villa chatting about the fun stuff we would be doing during the week. We got to the villa and met Brett’s lovely wife Jo, who proceeded to cook us a super tasty dinner.... plenty of it too! And we had the joys of this every night of the trip!
The trails in Lousa range from super fast and flowy tech trails to steep and gnarly fun to big old jumps and road gaps, literally something for everyone. Brett will very quickly get to grasps with your own riding styles and help and guide you along to hit everything you’re capable of.
Awesome place, really cool tracks and outstanding company, it’s likely like just having another friend on your trip who knows the area really well!

We decided to come here as it was recommended by Mike Jones (chain reaction) as it's where he trains during the off season.
The mountain has a great variety of challenging trails which we found amazing! If you like it steep, gnarly and natural with plenty of jumps then this is right up your street.
Brett has a fast uplift service which won't damage your bike. He is also your guide and is super talented!
The digs are clean and his wife Joanna is an excellent cook who always makes too much!
Lunch is at a local cafe where food and drink is very cheap.
The villa also has a basement with tools and bike stands so any repairs can be sorted there.
Overall we are delighted with the holiday and would highly recommend it.
Almost forgot, we met Rampage winner Andreu Lacondeguy up on the trails! Who also thought the place was 'sick'!
Happy days...

Mega trails, great uplift, top digs & food

Came to Wheelers for some training before the season kicked off and wasnt disappointed!! The trails here are some of the best i have rode. I can only comment on what i would call the intermediate and advanced trails we covered that week but they were mainly steep, rough and fast with plenty of jumps to hit! Brett is a very good rider and guide who is always there to help should you need it or tow you through a section of trail your unsure of. The food cooked by Jo was great every night and we were never left wanting more!

Only downside to the trip is we didnt have the weather to enjoy the pool and BBQ! Would highly reccomend and probably will be returning next year!
