This is a rare opportunity to purchase a manor house and successful business providing excellent income in the Loire Valley, the whole set on 4 ha of land. Read on ... When clients ask us questions about running a Bed & Breakfast + Gite business in France, our advice were always the same; choose an area where clients want to come and stay with plenty to see and do and provide them with an environment that they will wish to return to. Here we have an example of how to 'do it properly' – an excellent location offering peace and quiet yet retaining superb access to local amenities along with all the trappings of the Loire valley as well as beautifully finished spacious combination of buildings offering various permutations for rental. The owners have expanded on an existing business and today have an impressive annual turnover in excess of 200,000 €uros – proof that they’ve done it right and if that wasn’t enough they get to live on site in a splendid 16th century manor house. The Property: The owner’s 3 bedroom home/manoir today offers a mix of old and new styles providing ample space for a family and with scope to create further rooms in the large attic if needed. The outbuildings are used to provide a rental income and are divided into:
Former chapel with large lounge/salon on the ground floor with corner kitchen and two bedrooms with en-suite upstairs. Former stables with a studio apartment, store-room, large office and conservatory, and a laundry room. A gite with 3 bedrooms (all with en-suite) including one with its own separate entrance, twin kitchens and a dining room/lounge. Reception hall with two large rooms (can be divided for seminars) with seating for 100 people and a semi-professional kitchen, wc’s and handicapped bedroom. Upstairs are a further 8 bedrooms and 6 shower rooms.
Outside: The property has an attractive entrance courtyard with 2 separate parking areas, garden and orchard area and is surrounded by its own land (grass) the total plot measures approximately 4 hectares. To the rear of the manoir is a private plunge pool and owner’s terrace area. To the rear of the outbuildings is a private garden area with various troglodyte caves. Additional information: The property can be, and has been, rented out as a whole (excluding the Manoir) for seminars, weddings, etc. or separately as gites and/or the rooms individually as a chambre d’hotes/B&B – this versatility has proven to be very effective and the impressive annual turnover is testament to this. It is ideally suited to someone with a flair for cooking / hospitality, or if not there are possibilities for arrangements with local restaurants to provide food on-site for your guests.
