Successful shop and rental business on the edge of the Dordogne region
An immediate source of income comes with this spacious and stunning property thanks to its onsite, well-established and popular English grocery shop. In addition there is the possibility of further increasing this income by re-opening of the previously popular holiday lets and B & B.This property was, (until 2005), a very successful holiday rental but the present owners needed the space for their large extended family and so the rental business ceased. However, with a total of 11 bedrooms and seven bathrooms providing 680m2 of living space, within approximately 5 acres of private, fenced and landscaped grounds located between Montguyon and Angouleme, the holiday lets and Bed and Breakfast could be easily be re-established.
ABOUT THE AREA
Situated in the South West of France, with horse riding and tennis courts nearby, and boating lakes which cater for all sorts of outdoor activities and water sports. These are just a few of the leisure activities which are available a short drive away from the property.For those of us who are less energetic but would like to explore the culture and history of France why not visit the beautiful and medieval city of St. Emilion, the vineyards (and City) of Bordeaux and Cognac and the beautiful sandy beaches of the Atlantic coastline. Travelling to this beautiful area of France could not be easier with the airports of Bordeaux, Angouleme, Bergerac, and Limoges, on average, just one hour's drive from the property and thanks to the recent completion of the TGV line visitors now have daily and regular access to the cosmopolitan city of Paris with its museums, shopping and restaurants.
