This is a rare opportunity to purchase a popular going concern that brings in an exceptional and consistent income.
With further potential for development within the existing buildings, a change of emphasis in the business activity could also be envisaged: theme holidays, retreats, seminars, wedding venue etc - all in the perfect peace of fabulous French countryside, just a few minutes from the nearest shops; railway stations at Saint Jean d'Angély and Saintes, 12 and 18 km respectively; airports at La Rochelle and Bordeaux, 76 and 145 km respectively. Nearest A10 motorway junction at 12 km.
The property is situated in the countryside a short distance from the busy market town of St Jean D'Angely. It is a walled complex consisting of a beautifully renovated 3 bedroom main house, constructed on the remains of an 11th century monastery, with the surrounding farm buildings added to the site around 200 years ago, now housing 7 gites, accommodating a total of 40 people, and two barns, giving potential for a function room or a further two cottages. There is also a covered play area, a 12m x 6m secure pool and a sunbathing terrace.
