The Farm

The Farm

Guests are made to feel completely at home here at Quinta do Archino…the family farm for more than 300 years.

Situated in the unspoiled peace and tranquility of Cork, Pine and Eucalyptus trees, gentle hills and rivers lined with bamboo…all just a 45 minutes drive from Lisbon. The farm is also very popular with non-riding partners and friends; it is an easy drive away from the coast, historic towns, vineyards, a shooting range and golf courses.

Francisco is a natural teacher with a keen sense of exactly what each rider needs in order to progress…some riders say that they learn more here in 1 week than they have done in many years of riding previously at home.

Here the learning does not stop outside the school gates…so much more is confirmed and enhanced through relaxed conversation and discussion…around the dining table or by the poolside or on the way to see the mares and foals on the farm. Fluent in English, French, Spanish and Portuguese, Francisco has a wonderful feast of stories to tell which he delivers with a perfect blend of passion and humour.
