Reviews
GUEST REVIEWS
Claudia (Switzerland) - September 2023

Very warm welcome, high quality service in a family atmosphere. Rita and Carlos, the owners see us regularly to chat with us. All 3 instructors of the stable (Joao, Rui and Miguel) are at the top during the dressage lessons with relevant corrections and valuable advice, as well as their choice of the suitable horse for the lesson according to the rider's objective.
Manual including the rules of appropriate behavior in the stable and with stallions. Helmet required and can be provided on site. The instructors are omnipresent during the lessons.
The horses are well educated and trained to a high standard. During 7 lessons I rode 4 different horses (Furkado, Alaia, a 19 year old alzan horse and Chardonney). Each horse was chosen according to my objectives that I wanted to work on.
The tack is generally well maintained. Each horse has its own saddle and there are several bridles to choose from which are adjusted before each session by the instructor. A suggestion for improvement would be a communication system with headphones during classes to better hear the instructor.
Establishment in the style of a very clean and comfortable quinta. The meals are fresh, healthy and varied, made like at home. All the guests eat together and we met very nice people from other countries! A beautiful indoor swimming pool and recreational rooms including TV that we didn't even use.
Ca Rando Services: Fast and efficient management ! Travel file containing all the necessary information.
It was a great stay for us. I have no suggestions to make.
