The property has been run mainly as a ‘Gite’ (week by week self catering holiday home) since the summer of 2004. Bed & Breakfast has been only a small part of the business, not for the lack of demand, but for the lack of vacant accommodation.
Consequently there is now a database of over 400 clients who have either stayed at the property since 2004 or enquired about renting the property, but not followed up on the request.
The building was renovated with summer rentals in mind. It is a family home, a cohesive unit, but with the locking of just two doors it can be converted into two separate and fully independent spaces.
Three quarters of the property becomes the Gite. It comprises of the ground floor kitchen and dinning / living room, 5 bedrooms each with their walk in shower rooms, plus the garden, courtyard, two terraces and pool. This part of the property accommodates 10 people in luxury.
Whilst clients are in residence, the proprietor can stay in the remaining one quarter of the property on the first floor: the salon (lounge), the sixth bedroom and two bathrooms. The salon has a discreet, compact and fully equipped corner kitchen designed to blend in with the rest of the room.
Access to this independent apartment is by a ‘secret’ staircase which runs from behind the internal garage, through the linen stock area, and up to a corridor which stretches between the salon (lounge) and bedroom. This separate access allows both proprietor and clients total privacy.
