Fantastic horses for both lessons and trail rides which provided for a great and varied experience. Horses were turned out to a very high standard and clearly very well cared for.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

The room was beautiful and very clean with great facilities. The whole setup was fantastic and well maintained. The setting and leisure facilities (especially the hot tub and sauna) were even better than expected. The food was very fresh, good quality and included plenty of variety although there were a couple of evenings where a little more of the meat option would have been good.

How could we improve the quality of pre-holiday information that we send?

I don't think there is anything you could do to improve the quality of the pre-holiday information. The itinerary was very comprehensive and helpful (especially the 'recommended packing list' section).


How could we improve the way we handled your booking and payment?

I don't think there is anything you could do to improve the quality of the booking and payment arrangements.


Do you have any other feedback for us?

An absolutely fantastic holiday which surpassed my expectations in terms of the quality of horses and tuition, accommodation, food and leisure facilities in the most wonderful setting. The team at Monte Velho were extremely welcoming, especially the owners who were very hands on and keen to make everyone's stay perfect. It was a perfect holiday and I have already booked to return early next year! [ITS Comment: We are so glad that you enjoyed your holiday and it was our pleasure to help you organise it!]
