Quinta do Vento Equiazores
João Gouvêa and his wife Angela own and operate Quinta do Vento Equiazores. They have 40 horses at their stables on São Miguel, giving lessons in the covered arena and offering dinner and equestrian horse shows to guests. The company is able to meet cruise ship passengers in downtown Ponta Delgada and tour them around the island by horse-drawn carriage or lakeside with a picnic lunch at Sete Cidades (Lake of Seven Cities.) Of course, Equiazores offers horseback riding holidays from one to seven days.
The family has four vacation homes available to rent on the island of São Miguel for a unique horse riding vacation or for the non-horse riders looking for an Azores holiday in Portugal with views of the Atlantic Ocean.
