This family run Holiday Gite Business successfully advertises on Major Holiday Booking sites. The Gites are fully furnished and all equipment & furniture including linens etc is included in the sale, ready for you to start receiving income from the start if you wish.
The Gites are available to rent from Easter, until October, with rentals starting at E35 per night for the studio gite in low season, up to E110 per night for the 4 bedroom Vieille Maison in high season.
There is potential to further increase the business, for example with a longer letting period, the saltwater pool is not currently advertised for holidaymakers but that would add value and business if it was. There is B&B potential and with a low-key Wine Bar in the village, it is an attractive holiday destination for anyone wanting to sample a relaxing, French experience.
All of the properties were artisan renovated in 2005. They are modern and well equipped, while retaining original features such as the exposed stone walls, beamed ceilings, wood-burning fires, original kitchen potageres and parquet and flagged floors. All properties benefit from double glazing throughout, and the main farmhouse is heated by both wood-burning fires, and gas central heating.
As well as being central for places such as Historic Cognac, the Wonderful beaches near La Rochelle and Royan, Exciting Futuroscope and Puy du Fou, and fabulous traditional market towns such as Chef-Boutonne, Melle and Lezay, there are local attractions (within cycling and walking distance) such as the 15th Century fresco's in the Church at Pioussay, The Chateau at Jouhé, a Nationally renowned equestrian centre at Le Breuil Coiffaud
The Hamlet of Courtanne is a hive of tranquil activity, with its own Cave/Wine-bar & new Market Garden shop selling organically grown seasonal produce. Supermarkets and all commerce, Doctors, Schools, Café's, Bars and Restaurants are 8kms away.
The region boasts many Plan D'eau, some with waterside Café's, some supervised in high season for swimming. There are public open-air swimming pools in Chef-Boutonne and Sauzé-Vaussais, and a covered (all year round) pool in Melle.
We attract holidaymakers who come to the region for annual events such as the Race Around The Ramparts in Angouleme, the Folk Festival in Confolens, Comedy Festival In Sauzé-Vaussais and various Music festivals.
The current owners moved to this Region in 2002, attracted by the lifestyle. It has provided a Happy Family Home, as well as successful Holiday Gite Business, which have meshed together beautifully. If you have a desire to escape the busy roads, crowds, noise and hectic way of life, and to swap it for "The Courtanne Effect" of tranquility, relaxation, almost zero traffic, zero crime and a content, laid-back way of life, with income from the properties, friendly neighbours and beautiful surroundings, then Courtanne Gites will tick all your boxes.
