Hello again! We have now completed three years of our equestrian tourism project. It was a project that started with a great involvement of the whole family and with the objective of sharing with our guests the diamond that we believe to have in our hands. It was also the way we believed to most efficiently provide sustainability and thus ensure the future.

From the feedback we have received from our guests and the commercial success reflected by very high occupancy rates, unthinkable at the beginning, we get the feeling that we have made the right choice and are our biggest motivation to proceed with this enterprise.

Being aware to be living in a highly competitive world, it is our strategy to make Monte Velho an even better project. All our abilities are directed to understand what brings our guests to us and ensure that every year we can surprise them with improvements in all aspects of our activity.

We must also have in mind that the major strength of Monte Velho consists in the very special character it possesses and the extraordinary atmosphere that experience. If we destroy these things, we would compromise the magic that the place conveys.

We believe that our guests in Monte Velho become happier, and we want to keep it that way! The combination of a stunning natural landscape and the exceptional character of the Lusitano horse constitute the basis of our project. The possibility of enjoying, in this scenario, a unique equitation that these horses provide, with the support of excellent professional instructors, offer to all unforgettable moments, providing the feeling that your vacations are worth every minute that passed by. The tranquillity of the region, its mild climate, the security you feel, the Portuguese welcome, the good cuisine, the comfort and the good taste of the facilities are all factors that make the stay here so rewarding.
New Accommodations:
This year we have made several improvements that we believe will make Monte Velho experience more enjoyable

With regard to the accommodations, we built a new set of four Premium rooms, allowing us to better respond to the reservation requests that we had until now difficulty to satisfy. The new rooms, identical to existing ones, also enjoy a fantastic setting with all the privacy. Its location has been carefully thought out in a way that integrates itself into the surrounding environment and landscape.

At the side of the pool we built a small SPA including sauna, rest area, massage room, fitness center and an outdoor Jacuzzi, all enjoying the view to the lake.

Riding Improvements:
Regarding the equestrian activity we have the following novelties:
  • Construction of a new indoor riding arena with 45x16m allowing for a more comfortable horse riding, especially in the rainy season or in the summer. This arena is open on the sides, allowing to enjoy the magnificent landscape of the place;
  • Construction of new stable allowing four more horses;
  • A lunge arena for horse maintenance and warm up;
  • Acquisition of three new horses with a lot of quality and a high level of training, increasing the equestrian possibilities to the riders;
  • Reinforcement of our team of professionals with the integration of the certified instructor Annie Morris, which will bring her experience of competition, up to grand prix level, to value our horses and riding;
All these improvements, will certainly provide better conditions to make the stay in Monte Velho more enjoyable and more successful.
Stud Farm and competition:

Finally a word for our stud farm activity that we believe to strengthening its position as a reference of the Lusitano horse breeding. Our three horses competing make us very proud and have so far fulfil our objective to raise animals with sporting potential within the breed. Esquadra, Equador and the young Giraldo, have achieved excellent results, and are keeping a very solid career. The new foals that we have produced, are following the same line of quality, excelling in the quality of movements and rideability. We believe that soon we will have some nice surprises in this matter.
