Thriving gites complex with good income, owners house, 3 gites, land, pool, playroom, sand school., Vienne, Nouvelle Aquitaine
We are specialise in holidays or short breaks for families with children.
The turnover is usually between 50,000 and 60,000 € per year, depending on the exchange rate, the number of months we have decided to work and the time we have taken off. The turnover tax has just been cut in half and the tourist tax is now paid by the holidaymaker, which makes this activity even more attractive and more profitable.
We use our own website in July and August for stays of one or two weeks and provide additional services such as pizza night and meals on arrival. The rest of the year (September to June), we use the Airbnb website and welcome families for shorter stays. Our clientele is made up of British and French families. These gites are in great demand every month of the year. If you prefer a constant income or if you do not want a year round business, you can decide to take advantage of the flourishing summer business and take the other 8 months of the year off. The summer months are filled with holidaymakers and other months of the year are in great demand by the French families who visit the Futuroscope and choose to stay with us because of our fantastic facilities that allow us to stand out from the crowd . It's as easy as opening the calendars when you choose to work and make money, and then closing them when you want to take advantage of the property for yourself. One of the joys and great advantage of the business is that it is flexible and can be adapted to meet your needs and requirements.
All gites are fully equipped with everything a holiday maker might need and more. Located in a quiet rural area with views of the countryside, just 5 km from a village with schools, a large convenience store, a butcher, a bakery, a post office, a gift shop, a hairdresser, a pharmacy, doctors, a garage, bar/restaurant, a 27-hole golf course.
