This is a simple secluded gite business in a rural setting comprising the owner’s house and a two-bedroomed gite. The property is set in idyllic surroundings with no near neighbours. There is potential for expanding the business using chalets or yurts as well as the garage and another out-building.
The property lies halfway between Toulouse and the Pyrenees – on the hills overlooking the Leze valley, not far from Carla-Bayle and the Pyrenees Natural Park. It can be reached from Toulouse in under and hour.
The main building houses both the owners’ part of the house and the gite, but they are quite separate and each have their own entrance, parking and terrace. The owners’ part has a traditional farm kitchen with wood-pellet burner, a spacious lounge and bathroom/WC on the ground floor and three bedrooms and another bathroom on the upper floor.
Secluded gite business
The gite has a vast open-space lounge/dining area with kitchen corner on the ground floor with two bedrooms and a bathroom on the upper level. The whole building is heated with radiators linked to a serious (and very recent) oil-fired boiler.
But it’s the garden which makes this property so special. The land falls away from the house in a series of terraces – some planted with exotic trees – palm, medlar and fig predominant – and some used for vegetables or fruit trees. Water is not a problem as there is a permanent spring providing fresh clear water all year round.
No one will get rich exploiting one gite in the countryside but the attraction of this property lies elsewhere: it is a magical place where nature still has the upper hand, birds and butterflies have not been decimated by aggressive farming methods, motorways and airports are but a distant memory… and yet one is never too far from civilisation, the city or the mountains. For more dynamic buyers it has plenty of potential: there’s an outbuilding which could be converted into more accommodation … and the land lends itself to the placing of a yurt or two or even a “tiny house”. At this very attractive price you can’t go wrong.
