Riding the estate

Roam over the estate

Feel free with the wind on your face as you ride through the estate getting to know every inch of its 780 hectares. You are welcome to discover the ancient menhir, the roman dam, the vineyards, the cereals fields and the storks nests. Come across our cattle which is always wandering the fields, feeding of its pasture, and watch the partridges rapidly flow among the trees and shrubs. Take one of our guided tours and ride til the hilltop castle of Monsaraz to watch the sunset over the big lake.

Ride under the full moon of summer

Here, where the stars shine brighter in the night sky, the moon also likes to appear quite big and full. In a way like no other, enjoy the lukewarm summer nights flooded by the light of this lunar phase: ride on horseback through the estate and its surroundings, having the night and the celestial bodies as companions.
In 2017, the full moon will visit us on the following summer nights:
August 6th, 
7th and 8th
September 5th, 
6th and 7th

Our horses

At your disposal, we have Lusitano thoroughbred horses, the oldest saddle horses in the world. They are fit to take you galloping if you are an experienced rider but they are super gentle as well, making them perfect for horseback riding lessons. You and your kids can have fun in our riding ring right next door to our stables, which in turn have eight boxes ready to accommodate not only our horses but also yours if you wish to bring your own.
