I visited Monte Da Ribeira for a riding holiday last week and I returned feeling completely refreshed and ready to start the new year. The owner, Katharine, made me feel very welcome and cooked up mouthwatering dishes every night and lots of homemade bread. Luckily the riding offset all the calories as hacking through the gorgeous surrounding countryside gave me a good workout. The horses were beautiful and well mannered and I felt completely safe. I was allowed to help out with grooming and rugging up at night but there was no pressure to help out, I just enjoyed being around the horses. I even managed a trip to nearby Loule where there were some good shops dotted along the picturesque cobbled streets. I thoroughly recommend Monte Da Ribeira for an energetic but relaxing break.
