Farm and gite business
The estate has operated as a successful gite business for the past twenty years, with an impressive record of repeat business. Themed holidays have also been run here offering specialist tutor-led workshops.
Prospective buyers could look to further developing the themed holidays, as well as the possibility of establishing a B&B option.
First off, this is a marvellous place to live. The kitchen, the lounge and some of the bedrooms lead directly on to the veranda or a patio where a sublime view of the Aveyron valley unfolds before one’s eyes. There is wildlife galore with birds, insects and wild animals that have long since disappeared elsewhere in Europe. Secondly, the gite is a very spacious multi-purpose building. It can be used as a simple gite – let weekly – or as three B&B guest rooms (they all have en-suite bathrooms), or even as a centre for meetings, yoga classes or other meditative or corporative purposes, such is the size of the main room. Proximity to tourist sites such as Albi and Cordes-sur-Ciel mean that filling the gite over the four summer months is easy. Themed holidays should fill the premises for the remaining months. With over 350m² of living space and 6 hectares of land the price is very reasonable. Go for it!
