“Perfect:-)!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

I stayed in this beautifull ranch for a full week. I'm very critical; it has to be beautifull, clean and social and fun at the same time. It definitely was. Upon entrance you are mesmerized by the beauty and serenity of the ranch. Then you are instantly happy about the beautifull and well-trained horses you get to ride on and the very, very professional trainer who trains you and only you for a sweet 1,5 hours.
A perfect day in this ranch entails waking up for a nice breakfast, first lesson or outside ride (whichever you prefer), relaxing at a nice, big swimming pool, warm lunch with wine, relaxing yet again (or visiting Tomar or Golega at just 20 min ride), second lesson, dinner, bed. And you get to do it all again the next day:-)!. I specifically want to notice that I felt very welcome. I also learned how to jump which I'm taking home with me. So...a perfect holiday!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2012

I came for the opportunity to ride a lusitano, but can really recommend the place also for those only looking for accommodation. Stayed in a single room in the manor house - cosy bedroom, comfortable bed, delicious breakfast. Raquel and her staff are really friendly and welcoming. The entire place is beautiful, neat and spotless - the stable as well as bedrooms and bathrooms.

And the horses? Well kept and trained - judging from the stallion I got to ride and several other horses I saw during my stay. I took a one-hour riding lesson, which was a lot of fun and a good exercise. Trying the Spanish walk was really an experience!

Check the homepage www.solarespiritosanto.com for photos that describe the place well (although I found it smaller, more personal and with more character - the pleasant kind of deviations from the expected).
