Gramat property for sale

Gramat/Rocamadour – Gite Business

advertisement

  • Rocamadour

  • 2 bungalows and 4 rental units

  • Big pool – gardens

  • going-concern

  • €350,000 * (ref: 219)

This property is a purpose-built gite complex on the outskirts of Gramat, a busy market town in the North of the Lot département, a few miles from the famous village of Rocamadour and the celebrated Gouffre de Padirac – a vast underground cavern. It is ideally located in a region of beautiful villages, thick oak forests and prehistoric sites between the rivers Lot and Dordogne.

The complex was built in the eighties … and therefore is well-roofed, insulated and double-glazed. It comprises four identical gites, two big bungalows and a 14 metre pool with summer kitchen; all set in 5000m² of partially wooded land in the Parc Naturel de Quercy east of Gramat.

The current owner does not live on site: he rents the four gites as summer rentals over the months of July and August and the two 5-bedroomed bungalows on yearly leases.

Four gites

Each of the four gites have two double bedrooms, a family bathroom (with tub), separate wc, large kitchen/dining area and lounge. Outside each gite has a dedicated terrace invisible to the others.

All the gites have access to the pool, a 14×6 metre basin which is equipped with a sheltered summer kitchen area for barbecues and meets all safety regulations in terms of fencing.

Two bungalows

The two bungalows are separated from the gites and pool by a wooden fence … but they could be exploited as short-term summer rentals as well. Each has five bedrooms, two bathrooms, two WC and a spacious kitchen/dining area. Terrace and dining area outside. Parking.

The grounds are flat, mainly grass lawns punctuated with shady wooded areas. Parking for 5 or 6 cars. Access to the estate is (for the last 100 metres) by unpaved road. This means that there is no through traffic and no noise. Incidentally, this ‘unpaved road’ is in fact part of the Camino – the celebrated Pilgrims’ footpath leading to Santiago-di-Compostella in Spain, by way of Rocamadour.

Our opinion: The big draw here is the village of Rocamadour with its cliff-side dwellings, ecclesiastical centre and mediaeval housing. A ‘must-see’ for tourists from March through to October. Pilgrims come from the world over to see it … and they pass in front of this property. This could be treated as an investment property with the owner putting a manager into one of the units to run the place throughout the tourist season (March-Oct). Or the owners could use one of the 5-bedroom bungalows and let out the other five units. Whichever way, the business should generate over €70k pa. An ROI of more than 10% …

Lot Valley Gite Business near St Cirq-Lapopie

Renovated farmhouse + 4 gites near St Cirq-Lapopie
Pool – gardens – views
going-concern – excellent turnover
€772,000 * (ref: 199)

The Lot département is associated with dozens of ‘most beautiful villages’, vineyards, prehistoric cave drawings and dense oak forest. But the thing that brings all this together is the river Lot, winding slowly through its steep-sided valley from east to west. This property is in that valley – a few kilometres downstream from St Cirq-Lapopie and Pech Merle – on a spur of land that dominates the valley and the forests beyond. In other words: in the middle of the action, where the tourists want to be.

The property itself is atypical: it marries traditional white-stoned Quercy architecture with modern purpose-built holiday accommodation. The setting is rural – surrounded by fields and forest – but on the outskirts of a village. The layout of houses and gites has been carefully studied to allow the owners complete privacy while permitting each guest family to enjoy their own space.

The owner occupies most of the old Quercy farmhouse at the entrance to the estate: 2 bedrooms, lounge, dining room kitchen and terrace. But it’s flexible – like all the buildings – in that she can extend into the ‘office space’ and artists studio if needed. The rest of this old building (early 19th century) is occupied by gite 1 with its two bedrooms, bathroom, lounge and kitchen. It boasts a big balcony which faces south … and on the northern side, there’s the artist’s studio and another, enclosed, terrace.

The 3 other gîtes are quite separate from the main house. They are housed in a two-storey new-build on the other side of the pool. They are fairly upmarket gites with two or three bedrooms – each with their own bathroom – as well as spacious living/dining room with fully-equipped kitchen. The fact that the rooms are en-suite means that they can be exploited as B&B rooms in the low season. The big gite on the ground floor has four bedrooms, again modifiable according to demand, and spacious reception and dining areas.

All the gites have access to the pool, a salt-water pool which can be completely covered for Spring and Autumn bathing.

The land – over 5000m² – stretches up to woodland at one end with an orchard, parking for each gite and plenty of greenery and fig trees. There is a garage complex with a laundry room and spare bedroom in a separate section.

The local village is at the end of the lane but it has nothing in the way of amenities: nearest shops, doctor, chemist etc at St Géry two kms down the road.

Our opinion:
You can’t get much better than this in terms of location. The main sights (St Cirq-Lapopie and the Pech Merle Caves) are a cycle ride away. The estate is perched above the river so that one gets 180° views. The gites are clean, insulated, heated and attractive: ready to let. Currently run by just one person the business turns over a modest €60k or so, but in its heyday they managed nearly €100k. By exploiting the gites as gites in the high season and as B&B rooms from October to March, one could easily boost this to over €150k pa.
