EQUESTRIAN CENTRE WITH A REPUTATION FOR EXCELLENCE
Our clients for years ran one of the most highly acclaimed Equestrian Centres in Southern Portugal providing Liveries, Riding Lessons, Dressage Classes, Lessons in Horsemanship, Competitions, Riding Holidays and also run a renowned Animal Feed Store. Many professionals from around Europe have commented to us how good this establishment is! Our clients have been slowly winding everything down in readiness of selling on and feel it is time to hang those Jodhpur’s up to pursue another of their passions so that now a new owner has the thrill of picking up a readymade business (a website to die for), ‘rev’ it up again to the amazing business it was at its height and all at a very affordable price. This property has everything needed in place to create an excellent turnover in a very short time.
**Also available separately is the owners gorgeous three bedroom Quinta with fabulous swimming pool and gardens, private from the Equestrian Centre but overlooking the amazing land and close to the horses if required.
