We spent a wonderful week riding and staying in Quinta. We chose this place as all of us are riders, but definitely anyone with or without riding experience can stay here. Riding is an optional "bonus" as the bed&breakfast type guesthouse itself is far more enjoyable choice than a regular hotel. All the rooms are individually furnished, and all the Quinta is restored with love and care. Horses were very good, the scenery in the island is like in fairytales, people were also very nice.
Home made food in Quinta was excellent!! And what a breakfast, with all those fresh, delicious fruits I have only dreamt of - here in cold Scandinavia :) !! We had to be very carefull not to eat too much at breakfast as we usually started riding straight after that :)
Higly recommended for riders, active people and anybody seeking something else than a regular hotel accomodation. The photos in their web-pages tell it all; check out if you got interested.
