I had no complaints with the accommodation,though it was a little hot in the room,the food was amazing and the complimentary drinks and treats wonderful. I would certainly consider a... More

I’ve just come back from spending an amazing week at Quinta da Terca. Seeing the Azores from horseback has been a great experience, offering stunning views of the ocean and mountains, and picturesque rides through the villages. The farm feels like a home away from home, with its cozy atmosphere and the owners, Christina and Claude’s great hospitality. I would... More

This place is simply fantastic. The staff, and especially the owners Christina and Claude, are super friendly and welcoming. The house is cosy and has a very calming effect on you, perfect for a holiday. One of the best features of our stay was the food. Lots of it and super tasty. I loved all the horses I got to... More

I stayed one week on Quinta da Terca and I can not have been more satisfied. The location was perfect with only a small walk down to the beach. Clean, fresh and beautiful accommodation. Wonderful food, ecological fruits and vegetables from their own garden was served with every meal. Brilliant service with friendly and helpful staff. The riding was very... More

I booked through "Hidden Trails". Christina, Claude and staff were friendly and hospitable. The accommodations, meals, horses and guides were excellent. My room was very comfortable. A bottle of wine and beautiful basket of fruit with chocolate was waiting for me in my room. There was always plenty of hot water and fresh towels. My room was very clean. There... More

Food was excellent, horses so well cared for and good tack. Riding was varied and exciting, horses being transported out most days to cover different parts of the island, so you... More

So, the most important part first: the riding. I rode five horses over my week long stay (one three times as I expressed a preference for her). I felt each horse and ride was well matched to my ability. I was nervous before my arrival that the riding would be too advanced for me as I rode mostly as a... More

If you want to see some of the great scenery of Sao Miguel from horseback, and you are a somewhat experienced rider, Quinta da Terça is a wonderful choice. Various rides are offered throughout the week, some of which involve transporting you and your horse to more distant parts of the island. They also provide some non-riding activities. If you... More
