French Character Homes is delighted to be marketing this successfully run family Chambres d’Hôtes and Gîte business situated just outside its pretty market town. The Estate includes two independent gîtes; a converted barn consisting of six chambres d’hôtes en-suite bedrooms, a large guest dining room and yoga studio; a four bedroom family home; a 10x4.5m swimming pool and 8,000m2 of land with views onto the Pyrénées mountains. The business could be configured in a number of different ways and would operate well for families moving to France with parents or in-laws as the two gîtes allow for independent accommodation. In addition, the yoga studio and dining area could be rented out as a function room for wedding / birthday parties, which can be a lucrative business in France.
The area is a perfect tourist destination; the local market town is just 5 minutes away and the 14th century fortified town of Navarrenx, renowned for its art galleries and brocantes, is a 15 minutes drive. The beautiful historic city of Pau is just 20 minutes away and the ski slopes of the Pyrénées, the Atlantic coast and the Spanish border can be reached in less than an hour. Nearby activities include golf (Pau being home to the first golf course built in Europe), white water rafting, skiing, kayaking, canoeing, hang-gliding, horse-riding and fishing.
