This is a successful going-concern located in the narrow streets of one of the string of wine villages between Béziers and Narbonne on the Languedoc coast. It is right in the village: there is no garden but a small courtyard.
Fashioned out of a former hotel-restaurant, the current owners decided to create three gites on the ground floor: two 25²m studios and one larger 2-bed flat.
The first floor houses the B&B side of the business with three guest rooms: two equipped with en-suite bathrooms and the third boasting a suite of two bedrooms and a Jack’n’Jill bathroom. A spacious fully-equipped kitchen/dining-room serves this floor; breakfasts are provided but they don’t offer table d’hôte.
Further up the winding stone staircase (dating back to the 11th century!) we come to the owners’ quarters: the entire top floor. This is made up of two bedrooms, a lounge, a kitchen and … we are near the Mediterranean … a fabulous rooftop tropézienne – a roof terrace.
The village has all the necessary services: shops, cafés, restaurants, doctors and so on – all within walking distance.
For buyers who like to live in a village and be less reliant on the car than country dwellers, this is for you. Don’t be fooled by the village location: this is a lucrative all-year-round business that has no trouble filling both gites and guest rooms. Buyers may want to tweak the set-up: it would be possible to let the 3 guest rooms as a self-contained gite (as it has a kitchen/dining area.) Conversely, the studios on the ground floor could be used as B&B rooms thus bringing the total B&B guest rooms up to 5 – the legal limit. Whatever your project, you won’t find better value for money so near to the Mediterranean coast. Go for it!
