    FURTHER DEVELOPMENT - increasing rental income

    Updating 2nd floor gite apartment in manor house
    Food can be offered for large groups and this would offer a further increase in income as there is a large demand for it.
    The large "salle" has been used in the past as a restaurant in the winter months and this could be offered again to increase income.
    Accommodation for LARGE GROUPS within driving distance of Paris and other large cities. Vendors say "This part of the business has really taken off as there is little competition in the area and in regions that are an easy driving distance from Paris. We have a high volume of Parisians booking the whole complex for long weekends to celebrate functions. They regularly ask for catering but we do not wish to provide this. So there is a very good income stream there to be tapped by a new owner, if required.


    A fine, traditional stone built manor house in a lovely setting and location, offering an excellent rental income return on investment, given its USP of offering accommodation for large groups within driving distance of Paris and other large cities.

    PRICE - now 449,000Euros - including agency fees
