Join us for a unique experience in one of Portugal's most stunning natural landscapes. You will have the chance to get up close and personal with the magnificent Lusitanian horse, all within a luxurious and picturesque setting.

You will have the opportunity to visit Fiera da Golegã, the oldest and most significant horse fair in Portugal, with a history dating back to the mid-eighteenth century. Depending on the time of year, this fair may be replaced by Expoégua or the Horse Festival in Cascais. Whichever event you attend, you will be fully immersed in the vibrant atmosphere and excitement of this unparalleled gathering.

Rallies, raids, equestrian games, championships, carriage marathons and exhibitions are just a few of the incredible events that take place in Golegã. Additionally, breeders from around the world come here to purchase the finest purebred Lusitanian horses. It's an experience you won't want to miss.

The dates are set approximately, for further info please contact us.

The farm is a traditional Portuguese house, built in the early 1900 and recently restored. Although in essence maintaining the original features, the house is equipped with all modern comforts that enable visitors pleasant moments of leisure. We've got a fireplace, free Wi-Fi, TV with cable channels and a game room with a snooker.

This house is surrounded by the purest nature that you can find in Portugal. Perfect for a retreat and rest from the stress of the city, the place allows you to enjoy a fully deserved holiday with family.

You can also enjoy the outdoor activities. There are a garden and a swimming pool (working in spring and summer).

    I am grateful to Maria, for welcoming me into her home and sharing her expertise. Her beautiful.home and barn provided the perfect ending to my first trip to Portugal. The exceptional horses and effective training techniques elevated my riding skills to a new level. Thanks to the experience at Maria's place, I made significant progress when I returned home.
