The Equestrian Centre was originally set up by Olympic showjumper Janou Lefèbvre, and was used as a base by other famous riders, including the Brazilian legend Nelson Pessoa. Later owners included the Courrèges family and it is now being offered for sale on behalf of a group of enthusiasts who have invested significantly in bringing the facilities up to an exceptional standard. This is the quintessential private operation, perfect as a base for teams of professional riders.

In a beautiful location by the River Nonette, which flows in channels through the property, with 24ha of level land, The Equestrian Centre is suitable for a variety of equestrian uses. Not only is it close to one of the smartest horse racing centres in Europe, but also it is only 7km from the polo complex at Apremont.
