Description

This is a rare opportunity to acquire a very special property in the south west of France with either business potential or as a magnificent family home and may interest anyone wishing to continue the bed and breakfast business or those wanting to keep horses or other live stock. The property is a beautifully restored farmhouse and converted barn set within 6 hectares of rural countryside with established gardens, large vegetable plot, orchard and a large open air swimming pool and is surrounded by a mixed woodland and open fields. There are a number of outbuildings including a 6m long green house, garage/workshop, potting shed, pool cabin and tool shed. The house has 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, lounge with wood burning stove and a large kitchen/dining room and has been sympathetically renovated retaining may original features. It has gas central heating and most of the windows have been replaced by double glazed units. The present owners have run a very successful chambres d'hotes (bed and breakfast) business for the past 12 years in the tastefully restored barn which has 2 en-suite rooms on the ground floor together with a ‘Summer kitchen’. The first floor, which is open plan measuring 12m by 6.5m, has a small kitchen area, a wood burning stove and plenty of room for a large dining table and several sofas. 
The property is located approximately half way between Rodez and Albi on the Aveyron/Tarn border. It is on a very quiet lane with stunning views of the Viaduc du Viaur but with easy access to the N88.
