Partridge shooting in Spain began in the late nineteenth century. A few years later, King Alfonso XIII, thanks to his great hobby, managed to get the most important families of the era involved in this type of hunting. Thus paving the way forward for all hunting property owners who have carried this tradition forward to this day.
After the reign of Alfonso XIII, he was determined to push for and carry on the tradition of partridge shooting. In his efforts he created numerous hunting reserves and achieved truly impressive results with his hunts.
Committed to the past, present and future of partridge hunting, the Medem family has helped spread knowledge and awareness of this activity with the publication of their book "100 Years of Partridge Shooting" and today, La Nava offers the possibility of enjoying the full tradition of this art.

Having been connected to traditional partridge shooting in Spain for decades, the Medem family have been present for the most important national and organized hunts of the most important figures of the international hunting scene. Today Javier Medem, together with his wife, Almudena, and her brother Álvaro del Moral, collectively keep the family spirit of the business and the foundations and traditions of hunting alive.
