An exceptional opportunity to acquire a well-run and successful holiday village in SW France. It lies between the Dordogne and Lot rivers, in the Lot et Garonne département. As well as the 12 self-catering cottages it boasts a large 3-bedroomed house for the owners/managers, 2 heated pools, a café/restaurant and a childrens' garden with Shetland poneys and donkeys.
Currently themed as a 'family' destination with everything done to entertain the children while the parents relax over an apéritif, the concept could easily be tweaked to attract a more upmarket clientele more interested in local gastronomy and architecture for example. It would also be suitable for active young retirees as it is near to two fairly large towns (Villeneuve-sur-Lot and Bergerac) which offer a variety of cultural events.
But the way the business is run at present which will attract most buyers: it is based on the café/restaurant which concentrates on simple summer fare to satisfy young appetites: salads, grilled meats, barbecued food. The current owners will take time to train buyers in their methods.
The challenge is to attract a more international clientele and thereby to double the turnover figures by extending the season beyond the current April-September window. Internet marketing and knowledge of all the actors in the field (AirBnB, Tripadvisor, Booking etc) is essential to future success.
