Discover Ribatejo

Established right next to the bank of the Tagus (Tejo) River, just 70 kilometres north of Lisbon, the 2016 newly renovated “Quinta da Marchanta” is now a hotel and active holiday luxury resort, created from an old winery and horse breeding and training center.
Back in 1877, when it was built, the Ribatejo area was known as a typical area of farmers and fishermans, and you can still find that cultural richness here right next to the river, where the people, the cattle and the Lusitano horses have lived together for centuries.

Homeland of the Lusitano horses

We are right in the middle of the homeland of the Lusitano horses, a typical, well-tempered and multi-talented portuguese breed horse, and the Lusitanos still play a crucial role at the farm.
At Quinta da Marchanta you can have intensive dressage riding lessons with experienced and high level trainers onboard our well behaving, well-educated horses, or you can just go on a guided nature hike along the Tejo River on horseback.
We also have a couple of warmbloods, who have “emigrated” all the way from Denmark to complete the experience we are offering you.

Staying with us

We have at the Marchanta 3 fully equipped guest apartments, all with own kitchen and bathroom/TV and room for 4-6 sleepovers in each. We have also four quite exclusive double rooms, all of these also with own bathroom/TV. Our guests are invited to feel free to relax during daytime in our swimming pool area, and at night time in our bar lounge, equipped with satellite TV, pool table and a fireplace for those nights that ask for a glass of wine and a nice talk. Acces to wireless WiFi is of course available all over the quinta.
