This is a well-established gite business located right on the Canal du Midi, just west of Carcassonne. The 18th-century farmstead comprises the owner's 3-bedroom house plus four comfortable gites, a vast hangar/garage for events, and a heated pool. 3 acres of gardens stretch down from the accommodation to the Canal du Midi, where the owner has his boat moored.
There are four gites: one 3-bedroomed gite on two floors (136 m2) with spacious reception rooms and a farm kitchen; another big gite (120 m2) with two bedrooms; and then two smaller, one-bedroom gites, catering to couples. The owner has his own 3-bedroom house on two levels with two bathrooms.
Guests have full access to the gardens and their shady corners, heated pool, and vegetable patch. The big 200-square-meter hangar is perfect for events, and coupled with a marquee set up in the garden, it can cater to wedding parties or other gatherings.
Above all, the property has no near neighbours and no through traffic. And yet, one can walk into the local village and find bakeries, cafés, restaurants, and doctors. Carcassonne is 20 minutes away—its airport is even closer—and Toulouse is 45 minutes in the other direction. Buyers with ambition will look to increase the wedding side of things and exploit the cycling possibilities of the Canal-du-Midi towpath. This is a rare and exciting business opportunity.
