Full Description

Our ref- GT3501
Outstanding property set in over 15 hectares, run as a chambres d'hôtes and gite complex activity, offering 7 letting rooms and 3 large gites (21 bedrooms in total). Set in beautiful countryside ten minutes' drive from Montguyon, a pretty market town with a supermarket, full range of other shops, schools, medical services, etc, this successful business is ideally situated, with easy access to airports at Bordeaux and Limoges, and at the same time enjoying the many touristic activities in the southern Charente/Charente-Maritime/Dordogne. There is a recently added geodesic dome, used for functions and yoga retreats out of season to supplement the healthy income generated from the accommodation, and the current owners have plans in place to expand this side of the business, although the new owners are free to follow their own path - the property would be ideal for equestrian uses, for instance, with additional pastureland being available by negotiation.
The property has lovely views, and is reached by a long, tree-lined drive and to its impressive entrance. The wonderful grounds include a games field, as well as more formal lawned areas, pastureland and woodland, including an area bordered by a small river at the bottom of the gentle valley.
All of the buildings have been extremely well maintained, inside and out, and the accommodation is all of a high standard and full of character. The main house has beautiful restored floorboards on the 1st floor, and there are exposed beams, high ceilings and large windows, filling the spacious rooms with light.
The main house is centrally heated, and the ground floor is split by spacious hallways so the owners have their own private accommodation (c.186m2 habitable space), comprising a lovely country kitchen and rear kitchen set up for catering, spacious living and dining rooms and a bathroom, and three bedrooms upstairs, two en suite. On the chambres d'hôte side, there is a large kitchen for the use of guests, guest living and dining rooms, a guest toilet and shower room, and over the next two floors, 5 large en suite letting rooms, including 2 family suites with 2 bedrooms, giving 7 bedrooms in total. There is a large linen room, and storage rooms on each of the three floors.
The largest (206m2) of the 3 gites has central heating, as well as a fireplace with insert woodburner, and comprises a large entrance hall, huge sitting (50m2) and kitchen/dining rooms (51m2) and 4 double/twin bedrooms, with 2 bathrooms. The second gite (140m2) has a large open plan kitchen/sitting/dining room with 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, and the third (103m2) has a similar open plan living area/kitchen, and 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Each has its own terrace/garden area, and access to the extensive grounds around the house, and down through woodland to the river.
The swimming pool measures 12m x 6m and is fully fenced, with terraces around, and there is a games room for use by guests. The huge barn of 480m2, is multi-functional, used as a workshop, wood and tractor store, with half still having the original animal stalls, which could easily be adapted to stabling for horses, and other small outbuildings, all in good condition. In addition, there is a new geodisic dome, fully set up for use for functions, yoga retreats, etc.
Further details and photos, as well as floorplans, available on request.
