Monte Velho - Portugal

Monte Velho

5 star rating   15 June 2022

Sarah who has been on 17 In The Saddle rides. Wonderful, wonderful experience! | This was a really special experience. I am a very basic dressage rider and worried that Monte Velho would be too advanced for me. I needn't have worried because my instructor, Lorena, listened to what I wanted to work on and perfectly targeted the teaching for my level. The lessons were wonderful and I learnt SO much. What a privilege to ride such highly schooled horses. I came back from all my lessons grinning from ear to ear.

Monte Velho is an absolute joy to stay in. The rooms are very comfortable and beautifully designed and mine had a beautiful view. There is a lovely lounge to relax in, a beautiful pool, lots of places to relax and enjoy the wonderful views. The food is delicious and abundant. I felt so relaxed there.

Do you have any other feedback for us?

I highly recommend this holiday. The riding is out of this world and I learnt so much. I met a lovely group of people and I had a lovely relaxing time when I wasn't riding. I can't find anything to criticise - just a wonderful few days!
