Farm Holidays Portugal by Horse
Portugal by horse was created in 1996 in central Portugal.
Liesje grew up in the region of Antwerp (Belgium). In 1996 she left for Portugal with 2 horses, 2 dogs, some chickens and a tipi, setting out for a new challenge, a new life, Portugal by horse was founded.
She moved 5 times in 3 years but always in the same region. Finally settled in Midões. A very beautiful and historical village near Tábua.
João grew up in Alcantarilha-Algarve and Lisbon City. He always dreamed of moving to the Alentejo and live closer to nature. He studied Management of Computer Networks and later Geography at the University of Coimbra. Before moving to Midões he worked in Lisbon in the area of Information Technology.
Then he met Liesje and everything changed…
Together they built a unique holiday farm with horse riding holidays and Holiday homes surrounded by nature, a little paradise in central Portugal.
You can go horse riding in the most beautiful nature & feel the magic of horses, staying in Enchanting original holiday homes looking out on a magic Valey. They organize private Horse Riding Lessons, horse riding, Natural horsemanship lessons and Romantic or special holiday escape packages. You can also go hiking, have private yoga lessons, massages or reiki experiences at their holiday accommodations.
With heart and soul Liesje and João take care of the farm and everything that is included. João is the guide for the horse riding hacks and your teacher if you would like to learn more about horses and their behavior. He will teach you how you can ride in a horse friendly way, together with your horse.
For all the other activities João & Liesje work together with colleagues in the neighborhood.
