Monte Velho

5 star rating   29 February 2024

Jennifer who has been on 4 In The Saddle rides. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience! | Top marks for excellent riding instruction with their highly trained and well cared for horses in a stunning location and modern facilities. I was particularly impressed with the trail rides not just for the sheer beauty of the landscape and incredible horses but also because you get to choose the pace so you can really test yourself as a rider and have a lot of fun!

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

The accommodation, food and beverage offerings and overall feel of the place are comparable to an upmarket boutique luxury hotel. I hope they continue to at least maintain this standard or aim to exceed it. One thing they can improve is the gym, as it is too small and a bit neglected. It would also be nice to have a yoga mat and foam roller in the rooms.

[Abbie from ITS replies - thanks for much for your super feedback. Great idea on the yoga mats; we have suggested this to the ride operator. We're really pleased you enjoyed your stay and have already booked a return visit.]
