Property Description

This character guest house offering over 300 sqm of living area dates from 1898 and has been tastefully renovated, combining modern elements alongside the traditional ones. Built of the local Tuffeau stone (same stone is used on all the famous Loire Valley chateaux which are within close proximity to this residence).

Guest and owner’s accommodation alike have been thoughtfully created and having viewed it is no wonder that the B&B business is as popular as it is (700 nights and 600 meals booked for 2019 including 23 different nationalities). The 3000 sqm grounds offer plenty of space for parking and relaxing with 2 ponds, terraces and seating areas.

THE PROPERTY / B&B

Pillared entrance gate that leads to graveled parking alongside the former stables (today workshop and bike store), you then take the path through the front gardens to the front door. Formal entrance hall offers easy distribution to ground floor rooms.

An impressive 70 sqm + dining hall with 3.4m high ceilings and feature fireplace is used for entertaining and providing evening meals for guests that request them (an excellent second revenue stream). To the other side of the entrance hall we have a large modern kitchen with utility/laundry room and access to the private master-suite used by the owners.

A downstairs en-suite guest bedroom with shower room has also direct outside access. Stairs lead from the dining hall lead to the guests bedrooms on the first floor with 3 further large and beautifully equipped guest suites with views over the park. There is a smaller family bedroom also on this floor. The attic above is enormous and ideal for conversion into additional rooms (bedrooms, bathrooms, games, TV room, etc.) as required.

Within the grounds there is a rear terrace of over 50 sqm providing plenty of space for guests to enjoy those evening aperitifs. There is a second building/house which could be converted into a “reduced mobility” suite or maybe a self-contained 2 person gite. The barn today provides covered parking, bike store, workshop etc. and the formal stables provide extra space. Mains drainage, a well and oil fired central heating provide the comfort factors required.

The property is offered for sale including the majority of the furniture needed for the B&B side and with ongoing bookings could provide an ideal turnkey solution for a family wishing to embark on a change of lifestyle with associated income that this very popular area can easily sustain.

ABOUT THE AREA

Located on the edge of a village, nearby the market town of Chinon and right on the “La Loire à vélo” (Loire Valley cycle path) which sees an impressive 1 million tourists each year this home provides an ideal base for guests to explore the Loire Valley on your doorstep. With easy access to local chateaux of Chinon, Saumur, Langeais, Bourgeuil, Azay le Rideau …. to name but a few, along with all the trappings this World Heritage site has to offer the scope for maintaining or increasing an already well established income limited purely by the imagination and desire of the new owners.

A viewing is highly recommended, a coffee and chat with the owners would allow a better understanding of the excellent potential income this charming home affords.
