A charming 3-bedroom Charentaise farmhouse with very successful gite business on the edge of a quiet hamlet in Charente Maritime. The property currently has 3 gites, all rated 3 stars by the Tourist Information Office, there is scope to renovate the old dairy and small cottage into additional gites if desired.
Set in 1.1 hectares, there is plenty of room for gite guests to explore the grounds and play football, frisbee, tennis or volley ball, or just relax.
In addition, there is a large potager (vegetable patch) and the grounds have been used to raise chickens, ducks, geese, sheep and/or pigs, allowing near self-sufficiency. Water for the potager and garden comes from a well on the property. There are several mature fig, walnut, apple, pear, cherry and plum trees on the property.
The layout of the property allows privacy for both the owners and gite guests; guests arrive and leave by a separate drive, and the gites open out away from the farmhouse, allowing the owners to relax in their private patio.
Mature trees around the property give plenty of natural shade during the hot summer months.
The chlorine swimming pool is 10m x 5m and 1m deep throughout and is in full sunshine all day. It is surrounded by a slabbed patio, with recliners and parasols. In accordance with legal requirements, it is completely enclosed by a fence with a security gate. It also has an alarm system.
The seaside is 35 km away. La Rochelle, and its airport, 55km. The nearest shops are in Tonnay-Boutonne 5 km.
In further detail:
The house has a large kitchen/dining room with a built-in kitchen including a “Rosiere” (a French wood burning stove, similar to an Aga). Next to the kitchen is the living room with its brick and stone fireplace with wood-burner. Next to the kitchen is a WC/utility room, which leads to the large two storey garage.
Upstairs is a landing and corridor leading to 3 double bedrooms and a bathroom with independent shower, small bath, washbasin and toilet.

Each gite has its own private patio and garden area that opens onto the communal garden which includes the swimming pool for all the guests to share. Near the pool are two small buildings which store the barbeques, pool equipment and laundry equipment. Each gite has its own independent hot water and electric supply and meter. The gites are double glazed throughout, thermally insulated and electrically heated, making them suitable for year-round lets.
The gites have been successfully run for over 10 years and have proof of income. The sale would include all gite furniture, white goods, bedding etc and a list is available. In addition, there are stair gates, cots etc that can added to make them fully child friendly. They are in good decorative condition so there is nothing that the new owners need to do.
