To be on a horseback in this beautiful landscape is a memory for life! We was a family with kids fr 4 yrs to 14 and all of them loved it! We are complete beginners and myself even scared from horses, but they were so professional and really took care and make sure all our need was full filled!After the fantastic ride we all sat down for some wine and tapas at their farm. This place is a great reason to go to Marvao a a fantastic memory for life,

If you want to have a great time and you can manage to come to Marvao, you have to visit Caballos Marvao and take a horse ride!
My girlfriend and I have been there last week in the course of our "pre-wedding trip" and it was the best, we could do.
We had booked a 3h tour without having any experience in horse riding and it turned out to be no problem at all.
We had a nice, short and simple initial training and started right off. Sara and Pepe guided our tour and made it a great experience. We really enjoyed our time with them.
Exploring the beautiful landscape around Marvao by horse with all the laughing with the two of them was simply awesome!
After the tour we got wine, beer and ham and had a wonderful evening together.
All in all we spent 6,5h with Sara, Pepe and their family and don't want to miss even one minute of it.

Just go their and see yourself!

This was one of the most memorable experiences during our road trip in Portugal. Although we never rode horses before, they were fantastic and very well-trained. The 1 hour tour was very special: fantastic views, and an enjoyable experience. But what was truly special was the friendliness of the family. We were invited for some wine and snacks and some very nice conversation. Thanks to everyone!!

If you are near Marvao, that's the best place to spend free time. The family and their horses are very friendly. You don't need a skills to take a horse trip around the area, and enjoy a beautiful landscapes on the way. I felt there great familiar atmosphere when after the ride i was invited for a beer and some snacks. Great personal attitude towards tourists. For sure i will stop by next time i will be in the area :)
