We booked one week all inclusive. Airport Faro. Train to Lagos, almost hourly.
Pick up service at the Lagos train station was well organized. The farm with its vegetable gardens, pigs and dogs is a good place to relax from the daily office routine. The horses we could ride (beginners) were calm and friendly. We had about 2-4 hours riding a day (unfortunately it was a quite rainy week). Our trip to the beech was great. We also tried carriage driving which was also fun and a nice experience. The two guides were friendly, had patience and now a lot about the nature in the surrounding. Food was really great, fresh and diverse (Thanks to Francis and her cooking school!).
