Pyrenees - Gite Business Or Cycling Centre For Sale

Asking Price:
€475,000 Furniture / Fixtures included
Sales Revenue:

Cash Flow:
Under €50K

This is a successful gite business in the Couserans Naturel Parc in the central Pyrenees. It comprises a traditional stone-built Pyrenean house, two gites, gardens, a pool and outhouses. Above all, the property is located near a 'balcony' village facing the high peaks: superb views all year round.

Currently the business caters to a traditional clientele of hikers, climbers and nature lovers who come to explore the three valleys leading into the high mountains: the Biros, Bethmale and Bellelongue.

But, given the exceptional location on one of the Tour de France's evergreen routes (it lies between the Col de la Core and the Col de Portet d'Aspet) the owners are receiving more and more requests for 'cycling' accommodation - for cyclists and their machines - throughout the year. They don't want to do this sort of work as they know nothing about cycling ... but the market is there.

The main house has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a large 'living' area (dining-room and lounge) a big kitchen and a back kitchen/laundry room. The two upper floors house the four bedrooms. A feature of the first floor is a wonderful old wooden balcony running most of the width of the house.

The big gite is in an independent stone-built former barn: kitchen, bathroom, lounge and two bedrooms on two floors.

The small gite is at the back of the main house and has one bedroom, lounge/diner and bathroom.

Two fairly big outhouses out at the back and a spacious garage offer extra room for cycle maintenance and storage.

And, unusually for a mountain establishment, there is a wonderful 10x5 metre pool - just right for a plunge after a long day in the saddle.

Whatever your project - traditional lifestyle change or cycle centre - this property may be the answer: well worth a visit.
