A fantastic and rare opportunity to aquire a running gite and b&b business in a rural paradise just two minutes drive from an extremely popular and dynamic village on one of the biggest pilgrim walking routes of the world! An already established and well maintained business with potential to develop further if desired in a superb environment just outside of a renowned, dynamic medieval village with a multi-culturel and relaxed population.
The main house has wheelchair access as well as traditional steps up to the main living area which covers 160m2 of open plan kitchen, dining and living space with an office leading onto a south facing terrace. A glassed veranda to the east from the kitchen makes for a sunny and agreeable breakfast area overlooking the open countryside. There is full fuel-fired central heating plus a working chimney between the kitchen and living space. The three bedrooms with en suite facilities are on this same level and a storage room. Annexed on to the house is the totally independent gite of around 80m2 including kitchen and living area and two bedrooms with en suite shower rooms that can be rented as a separate house or rented as b & b rooms. A sealed up and sound insulated door could be reopened at no expense to link the gite into the main house or add a bedroom from house side to gite as desired. Below the entire surface area of the house on ground level are vast cellar rooms including a wine cellar, service/work rooms, utility space and storage; all very well organised and perfectly clean and tidy. Ship shape is the phrase that comes to mind!
The entrance to the small one roomed separate gite is to the side of the fully working ancient bread oven - a real feature of the property and a piece of history at the same time. The present owner uses it to dry figs and plums in the autumn and it can be used for bread or pizzas for those wanting to really make an impression on friends or guests!
The grounds are extremely well managed - the hundred year trees add a distinguished and mature touch to the well kept gardens.
The vegetable garden plots and chicken run mean that you can produce your own farm produce to serve at table if you are very keen. An underground water recuperation reserve has been installed to allow for maintaining the gardens.
The pigeon tower and adjoining barns are in very good nick. All roofs have been rigerously well maintained and the possibility of converting more buildings into accomodation is available. The pigeon tower has an authentic stone flagged floor.
The property is reached from a long tree lined road that ends at the house and there are no other properties further along - just hills and walking paths so perfectly peaceful. In the valley below on the road side there is a property which means you are not totally isolated but just perfectly private - the best of both worlds. Just a two minute drive from the local and lively small village with bar restaurants and all commerce including some fine boutiques and art galleries plus various festivals, brocantes and fêtes through out the year.
The local village also boasts an incredibly beautiful pleasure lake with little sandy beach, exercise machines, huge inflatables, pic-nic area, snacks and restaurant over the summer holidays. It remains touristy and traditional attracting quality holiday makers looking for a totally homely, relaxed and amicable enviromnent with gourmet foods! The local market is extremely popular and the quality of our local produce unbeatable whether it be the locally produced meats and cheeses or organic vegetables, there is a real movement towards respecting the agriculture and our health. This is also reflected in the sporting activities that one can join locally.Home Features:
