We invite you to join a different experience, in one of the most beautiful natural landscapes in Portugal, at our farm stud where you will make a close contact with the Lusitanian horse, in a luxurious and beautiful setting. 

On this tour you will visit Fiera da Golegã (3 days), the oldest and the most important horse fair in Portugal, which history dates back to the mid-eighteenth century. Depending on the time of the year, this fair can be changed to Expoégua or Horse Festival in Cascais. You will have the opportunity to fully immerse yourself in the atmosphere of this one of a kind event: Rallies, Raids, Equestrian Games, Championships, Carriage Marathons and Exhibitions are some of the spectacular events that take place in Golegã. And of course, the best purebred Lusitanian are sold here to the breeders from around the world. 

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.
