The property is will situated in an easy to find location (ideal for B&B) between two local villages with a good selection of amenities and a short drive to the popular tourist destination of La Chartre sur Loir or Le Grand Lucé. The current owners run a successful B&B and gite accommodation business on site and the goodwill and bookings could be handed over to the new owner along with the furnishing needed (subject to negotiations).

The attached wheel room houses the original wheel and today the gas boiler.
Guest Accommodation A workshop has been prepared for future conversion into a separate 1 bedroom apartment with river views. The former stable and barn with high vaulted roof has had planning permission granted to convert into another guest lodge and the end of the property (former workers cottage) is today a delightful 2 bedroom guest lodge with lounge and kitchen/diner.
Outside Outside there is a separate tuffeau stone barn, a double garage, orchard, garden, lawn areas, 3 rough paddocks (currently used for hay), vegetable patch, and the other side of the lane further land and river frontage. Various terraces have been constructed to provide plenty of seating areas for the owners and guests to sit and enjoy the relaxing sound of the water and views over the river.
