In the very distant past I was lucky enough to spend a bit of time in Northern Portugal – a ghost town with fabulous homes lying empty after the drug barons were closed down. My memories are of amazing night clubs and even better mountain biking.
What I didn’t get to do was horse riding – although the horse on the home page of Portugal Web looks like he’d be more than I could handle. Portugal Web is an online shop for equestrian goodies, wine and gourmet olive oil and pine nuts. It seems an unusual combination but all suitably rural.
