About the property

Feixe Farm is a 8 ha property that consists of 3 independent country houses.


Feixe Farm is a century-old estate built in 1882. It is about 8 ha, located in Lugar do Feixe (Basto-Santa Tecla) in Celorico de Basto. It is part of a unique forest of sycamore, chestnut and oak trees, and crossed by a stream of clear waters.

It consists of three totally independent cottages each with its own private pool and well spaced to ensure privacy and a different ambience and livability.

The originality of the architecture of each house is well integrated in the landscape, with full respect for the surrounding nature. Each of them is decorated in an elegant, functional and comfortable manner, for maximum comfort and well being at any season.

Thoroughbred Lusitanian horses are the great passion and the reason for the existence of this property. Here we breed, teach and practice traditional Portuguese riding with Lusitanian horses, considered the world's best saddle horses, whether in classical riding exercises or simply to enjoy a stroll in the farm or in the surrounding forest.


The former caretaker's house,completely rebuilt and renewed, a 150 sq. meter abode, consists of 2 suite bedrooms, large common room with fireplace and kitchen, plus a comfortable and cozy mezzanine. It is fully equipped with appliances, satellite TV,internet and heating. It accommodates 4/6 people. The house is dominated by a secular fig tree.

The living room has access to a large terrace overlooking the private pool and surrounding lawn.


Here we breed, teach and practice traditional Portuguese pure blood Lusitanian riding horses, and we are equipped with all necessary infrastructures, so you can take advantage of the world’s best saddle horses in classical riding exercises or simply trot in complete tranquility in the surrounding nature. Individual lessons and internships in Portuguese horsemanship and riding are available.

Peaceful Relaxing Retreat in The Portuguese Hills

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful holiday; a chance to experience and see the real Portugal away from the tourist traps. The villa itself was lovely; large, cool in the heat and traditional with all the luxury amenities including a superb pool. It was quiet with no traffic and only horses, dogs and kittens for company. Glorious views across the hills and winding roads between the many small villages that dominate this area. Jose and Anna could not have been more helpful and welcoming. A great base to explore the coast, Porto and local mountains all of which can be reached in no time. Will definitely be back if this review hasn't booked the villa for the next 10 years....

Tolles Ferienhaus

  • 5 of 5

Gut um sich vom Alltagsstress zu erholen. Obwohl es abseits steht, kann man mit einem Mietauto in kurzer Zeit einen guten Einblick in den Norden Portugals erhalten. Die Gastfreundlichkeit der Portugiesen und des Hausbesitzers ist überwältigend.

Selbst das Reiten der eigenen professionell geschulten Lusitanos ist ein Erlebnis für sich.

Wir danken Ana und José für die tollen, gemeinsam verbrachten Abende und die überaus herzliche Gastfreundschaft.

Muito Obrigado

Des hôtes remarquablement attentionnés 😊!

  • 5 of 5

Très bon moment passé chez José et Ana, adorables. La maison, la piscine et le jardin sont fidèles aux photos. Le tout étant très fonctionnel, propre et de très bon goût. Un petit ménage est fait au milieu d'un sejour de 15 jours.

Les petites attentions de bienvenues ont été très appréciées. José est un excellent cavalier et aime partager sa passion. Ses chevaux sont magnifiques et on adore les voir en liberté dans la propriété ainsi que les adorables toutous et chatons.

Vous serez à moins d'une heure de Porto centre , Braga et Guimaraes.

En résumé, un parfait endroit pour découvrir le Portugal nord.

merveilleux endroit

  • 4 of 5

Maison tout à fait conforme au descriptif.

La maison est située dans un cadre magnifique, dans une région variée ( beaux villages médiévaux, réserve naturelle) et très accessible( à moins de 80 km en moyenne).

La maison allie tout le confort nécessaire à un séjour estival( piscine jardin terrasse) à celui d'un intérieur conforme au descriptif ( très beau matériau, belle salle de bain).L'entretient est très bien assuré y compris à mi course d'un séjour de deux semaines : très appréciable.

La qualité de la consctruction et le climat rendent les nuits agréables malgré de belles températures la journée.

L'accueil par le propriétaire est chaleureux, disponible, de très bon conseil, tout en étant respectueux.

Magnifiques chevaux dans la propriété, élevés dans le respect qu'on leur doit.
