“The perfect location for any type of cyclist, whether you are a road, MTB or gravel aficionado you can find some of the best roads for it around the house and also any type of terrain. As a professional cyclist, it’s one of my favourite places in the world to ride my bike. It makes it even more special when staying at the house, which is incredibly peaceful and homely. Already looking forward to my next visit!“

Pavel Sivakov

Professional Road Racing Cyclist

Adventure and challenge mean everything to me. I have ridden motorbikes across Africa, driven cars across the Gobi, walked to the North and South Poles, and run and cycled more deserts, mountains and coastlines than I care to remember. With all of this, Artu and Can Terrades embody the perfect European adventure base. It has exceptional landscape, extraordinary riding, a great team and incredible food. It's a must every year.

Sam Ratcliffe

Ineos Sport

As soon as you enter the grounds of Can Terrades, you feel completely at ease. Artu Lodge is the ideal setting to eat, sleep, & exercise optimally. The property's location allows for world-class access to any type of endurance activity you can imagine, right from your doorstep. The unique environment makes you feel miles away from everything while still being close to everything. It’s the perfect setting to unwind, relax & recharge however you choose to do that.

Cameron Wurf

Ineos Grenadiers Rider, Triathlete

"The perfect cycling base. Its unique location is centred on some of the best cycling roads anywhere in Europe. A base from which you can access amazing Mtb trails, world-class gravel roads and some beautiful scenic road rides—a beautifully peaceful and homely place for any adventurer or athlete with the support there for everyone."

Tom Pidcock

Olympic cycling gold medalist

“Artu is a great location for a training camp. We were able to train immediately in the local mountains and relax in the peace and quiet after training in the evening. The facilities were everything an athlete could wish for.”

Hugh Carthy

Professional Road Racing Cyclist

“Our week at Artu was pretty incredible. The retreat is the perfect place to escape, train and relax. The property is situated in a prime location to climb in the mountains and to pedal into the sunshine of the Costa Brava. The food was some of the finest Catalan dishes I’ve experienced and the property itself was outstanding. It was a pleasure to stay at Artu, and I can only wish to call it home again.”

James Whelan

Professional Road Racing Cyclist

"When we arrived, we were stunned by the location. Nestled in the mountains, the fantastic views made for a special feel. We had a group of athletes all looking to fine-tune their form ahead of a busy racing season and the entire team were well catered for during our stay with no meal the same. Local cuisine meets performance nutrition was perfect during our two-week-long stay. We can't wait to come back!"

Rob Partridge

Head of Wales Racing Academy

"A lot of our riders are good at doing the hard work on the bike but not good at relaxing off the bike to take the maximum benefit from their training. At Artu, we had no problem at all doing both. I have done training camps in many places, and Artu is a unique juxtaposition of a beautiful and luxurious environment but with all the tools to pursue performance at the highest level."

Nate Wilson

Performance Manager, EF Education Nippo

"The cycling at Artu is nothing short of world-class gravel and road riding. At the foot of Deu del Mont, a 1,123m peak riddled with paved and unpaved cycling routes, Artu is ideally located to allow exploration or endeavoured training for riders of all ability levels. After riding, return to enjoy the modern facilities at the property including massage, yoga room, strength training, two swimming pools, a far infrared sauna, and a vineyard. Enjoy freshly prepared food from renowned local chefs at Can Terrades. Artu is an excellent venue for cycling and wellness."
