Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

The dessert options have changed. There used to be a choice, but now desserts are served in individual portions of one type of dessert. Although these were nice they would have been so much better if accompanied with a choice of either ice cream or cream.

Do you have any other feedback for us?

We met some lovely people and everyone were so supportive of each other. Also Diogo has introduced a free weekly activity schedule, which included wine tasting, masterclasses with their up and coming competition horses and a dinner concert.

(Abbie from In The Saddle writes, "Thank you very much for your feedback. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your return visit to Monte Velho. These additional activities are subject to local factors and are not available every week. The masterclasses tend to take place once a week, but cannot always be guaranteed. It is great that you were able to experience these extras during your stay.")
