What you'll do

A ride with docile horses inside a Medieval Castle !!
After leaving Lisbon by car, on a 1h10 journey, we will enter a landscape of the Alentejo plain, where cork and olive predominate and where I will give you information about the Alentejo. We are going directly to the farm to meet and bond with your horses and ensure that both are in tune and have a romantic walk.
The Tour will start in the countryside right next to Arraiolos, from the foot of the hill to the interior of the 14th Century Medieval Castle with its splendid 360 views. There are 25 minutes of briefing and an hour of riding with the horse, where you will be able to the countryside, history and very important, a tranquility and union transmitted with the docile horses !!
At the end of the tour, they will go to my typical Alentejo house, right next to the Castle, where they will enjoy a complete meal prepared by a local lady and with all the food you deserve !! The meal has starters with cheese, olives, chorizo, meat dish freshly prepared, water, juice and selected Alentejo wine !! You have dessert and coffee, all included in your experience of Portuguese regional food made by locals to enjoy in relaxation !!
We will return to Lisbon with longing for a different, peaceful and incredible experience !!

I am fun, cheap and passionate about Alentejo, the countryside, history, animals and, of course, food, thus getting everything together to share what I love to do: providing unique unforgettable moments !! I know Arraiolos and Alentejo as the "palm of my hand", were it not for my Alentejo mother, so they will always be well accompanied and will have the best pyrenees of the day !! I always liked to interact and take care of the animals of the field, since I was a little boy that helped the family with the sheep, goats, and horses were always a strong presence for me, from which I have developed different walks since a few years ago.
I also really love Portuguese cuisine, so I know how to prepare a very regional lunch for you !!
