Gite Or B&b
This is a property in an exceptional location - on a hilltop in the Pyrenees National Park - with breath-taking views of the high mountains. It is currently used as a 'very big gite' - a holiday rental which can accommodate 22 guests. The layout and set-up would allow it to be exploited as an upmarket B&B should buyers prefer: there are 6 ensuite bedrooms.
The main house is a vast farmhouse renovated with style and taste. There are a number of spacious reception rooms - lounges, dining rooms, studies - as well as a fine kitchen and the 6 ensuite bedrooms. Most of the rooms afford splendid views of the surrounding mountains.
Outdoors there is over a hectare of land with gardens and orchards and the swimming pool.
But the most exciting part of the property is an older, more traditional farmhouse on the land which is awaiting renovation. Planning has been obtained (no easy task in a National Park) and an architect has drawn up plans for a three-bedroomed house.
These two houses, in this exceptional site, represent a sure investment in an area where no new buildings are tolerated.
