This is the property many of our customers have been waiting for: an upmarket gite business in its own wooded valley with no near neighbours and yet within walking distance of a lively village with restaurant and bakery! Throw in a 15 metre heated pool, a full-size tennis court and a delightful lake stocked with fish and it begins to look like heaven on earth.
The advantage of the relatively unknown northern Tarn region is that prices are half those of Provence or Dordogne. Here, within 30 minutes of the UNESCO World Heritage site at Albi and 30 minutes from the Gaillac wine region, buyers are getting nearly 1000 square metres of living space and 34 acres of land for just over a million euros. That comes out at roughly €1100 per square metre for the buildings and zero for the land!
There are four houses on the estate. All have been totally refurbished and brought up to 21st century standards: underfloor heating, aircon, insulation, new roofs etc. The owners live in one (four bedrooms, vast living/dining room, sophisticated kitchen, 2 bathrooms) and rent out the three other as holiday accommodation (gites). These gites all have the same quality of refurbishment as the owners' house and are, of course, furnished and equipped to a high standard.
The business is currently run as a sort of 'lifestyle' business with friends and family taking precedence over paying guests. But the business model is there, well organised and ready to put into gear post-Covid. The gites let for around €2500 per week in the high season ... do the math. What's needed is an attractive theme for the low season: yoga courses, cooking classes, wine-tasting, tennis coaching ... to make full use of the excellent accommodation.
And we haven't even mentioned the deciduous forest, the wild flowers, the wildlife, the pollution-free night skies, the spring, the well, the permaculture, ... the quiet!
