The current owner has run this as a very successful B & B for a number of years, she still does and would now like to retire. The business will continue until the next owner comes along, just in case they want to continue with the B & B's commercial success; alternatively with a few little changes; you could turn part of the house into a good sized gîte; always an option for those who prefer to see guests once a week only!
If you do not require a business then it is not a problem as this property would just as well suit someone wanting to relocate to the area, with spacious family accommodation throughout and good private and international schools close-by.
The property has three large guest bedrooms all with en-suites on the ground floor with their own private entrance. The owners have a separate owner’s accommodation 2-bedroom apartment on the first floor. All this together with a fully fitted laundry and a newly built conservatory, currently used as a dining room for the guests and with views over the garden and orchard.
A separate entrance for up to 5 caravan’s/motor homes or tents, with full shower and toilet facilities already on site.
The owner really did do her homework when purchasing and renovating this property as you have excellent transport links to Poitiers, Angouleme, Niort and Limoges and it is only a 1 hour 30-minute drive to La Rochelle, with many other popular attractions even closer, giving plenty of places for your guests to visit
The house benefits from mains electricity, water and drainage. It is partially double glazed, with secondary glazing on other windows. The electrics were updated 12 years ago and the roof were redone in 1999, with a further refresh in 2012. It has gas central heating (cittern for gas) and a wood burning fires in the lounge. There is a newly fitted condenser boiler and solar water heating unit which means very low running costs. Broadband is available.
