A beautifully presented Chambre d'hôte tracing its history back to the 12th century, Dordogne, Nouvelle Aquitaine
In the heart of the Vezere Valley, the “valley of mankind”, this delightfully restored stone property has deserves its outstanding reputation for the quality of its accommodation.
The honey coloured stone buildings, some of which date back to the 12th century, have been well renovated to stylishly combine character features with all the comforts of modern living. The repeat bookings, excellent reviews and year-round reservations speak to the quality of the property and to the business you could be stepping in to.
The buildings offer spacious and private accommodation for the owner so a private family life would be easily managed. Unlike many b&b properties where it is difficult to find some "family space", this property has approx. 200 m2 of "private area" including spacious living rooms and large ensuite bedrooms for the family, well away from the guest areas.
A spacious mezzanine above the guest dining area is currently used as an office and provides access to a bedroom and bathroom. The kitchen has been fitted with professional style inox fixtures and has been laid out to cater comfortably for breakfasts and dinners for guests and family.
The five guest bedrooms all have independent entrances and are very well presented, with exposed stonework, character features, tasteful décor and modern ensuite bathrooms. Either large doubles or family suites, the bedrooms are heated and could be rented out throughout the year.
The buildings have extensive storage areas currently providing laundry facilities, boiler room, workshops, storage, garaging etc. Subject to appropriate permissions, these large areas could offer options for additional accommodation or guest facilities, and there is a large attic room currently unused which could be finished to offer yet more bedroom space or perhaps an additional guest lounge - the possibilities are endless.
The large, well-maintained gardens are partially walled and are mainly laid to lawn with terraced flower beds around the heated pool. An attractive gazebo and seating areas give guests plenty of privacy even when the rooms are fully booked.
In the heart of a small medieval village, this lovely property offers access to many of the area’s world-famous attractions - Montignac and the Lascaux Caves, Sarlat and the Valley of the Dordogne, the famous 1001 castles are within easy reach, making this an ideal location for a tourist business. The airports at Bergerac, Brive and Limoges offer easy international access.
This is the ideal property for anyone looking to take on a beautiful home and highly regarded business with the scope to expand and add their own flair.
