The Quintanar Palace is found very close to the historic city of Segovia and breaking the rolling plains of Castile, with the Guadarrama Mountains as a backdrop. This estate has belonged to the same family since the colonization of these lands around the XIIth Century. The different generations have always tailored to maintain the essence, the spirit and the original characteristics of the place.

Nowadays, and following the inherited tradition, the actual Marquis of Quintanar is still intended to the same purposes ever: hunting, breeding fighting bulls, and agriculture.

The estate holds a XIVth Century palace. Originally a defensive fortress, the palace has gone through

several modifications, along its history. The last one took place a few years ago, in order to provide it, with all the actual facilities, but taking much care to preserve each detail, to maintain its personality and authentity. The front façade reflects today, the same characters and splendid colors as it had during the XVIIth Century, when the most relevant segovian palaces such as La Granja, or Riofrío, where decorated under the Florentine influences.

Suite type rooms assure our guests the maximum comfort with a direct service offered from the Quintanar family, taking extreme care in both; meals and wine list. Eduardo F. de Araoz is co-hosting each shoot to make sure all happens to you satisfaction.

Driven Red Legged Partridge Shooting;

Partridge drive shooting is certainly the main attraction of small game in Spain. It is worldwide known that the dream of every gun is the challenge of a covey of partridges flying swiftly in over the butt. No other bird game can provide such excitement.

It is at the end of the XIXth Century when partridge drives appear in Spain, reigning King Alphonse XIII, the best shooter of the time and the driving force behind this modality. In the early 1920´s this sport was already very popular within the most important Spanish estates.

Quintanar has been shooting partridges in for the last four generations. The property, holding centenary shrub oaks, gall oaks, pines, junipers and a varied orography broken by gullies, offer a changing landscape and a wide range of shooting situations making every drive different. Quintanar is a unique and privileged place for partridge shooting.


Also known as “Tableau” it is a moment to present respect to your sport, to the people who have worked very hard for this successful day, to see in front of you the total bagged birds as per the contracted daily amount, a moment of pride for the shooters who have been able to accomplish this mark, and the perfect souvenir photo to be framed for your office, or a special place in your home.
