Our fourth visit so we obviously like the place:).....as good as ever. Great hosts and staff create a very friendly, relaxed atmosphere at the Quinta. The horses are exceptional and care is taken to ensure riders are comfortable with the horse and pace of the ride. An all round terrific holiday.

A wonderful walk with wonderful horses! We had the pleasure to go for a walk with wonderful horses and so well trained. The instructor Rodrigo is very profissional and careful. I advice everyone to come and experience it!

Great riding great accommodation wonderful guides, all in all a fantastic find, well done 'in the saddle' for arranging it. Feeding horses in the break between starters and main course is a new experience. The Azores as yet are relatively undeveloped so go there while you can.

The rides were through spectacular countryside. The food was good and the accommodation comfortable. The horses have great characters and one of the surprises was the wonderful J. Carim, a... More

Christina and her husband are clearly true animal lovers, and treat them all with kindness and respect. We really love that they have several rescue dogs and horses, shows how big a hwart they hace. We will be... 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

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
