Location
Set in the foothills of Mount Canigou in the Parc Naturel Régionel des Pyrénées Catalanes - the beautiful Languedoc region of the South of France. It is within easy reach of both the Mediterranean coast and the ski resorts.

A 15 minute riverside walk takes you into the village with its friendly bistrot, school and handful of small shops. It is just 3 km to the nearest town with all amenities including a supermarket, petrol station, thermal spa and sports facilities.

There are many miles of beautiful walks and cycle rides directly from the house.

Access
The nearest airport is Perpignan, about 45 minutes away. Beziers and Girona are both about 1 ½ hours, Carcassonne and Montpellier 2 hours and international airports of Barcelona and Toulouse are both around 3 hours away. The TGV train goes from Paris to Perpignan. The village has a euro-bus service.

Interior
The four gites/apartments are all completely independent with fully-equipped kitchens. In addition to this, the large central kitchen is fully equipped to cater for up to 30 people. It includes 2 hobs, 2 ovens, 2 fridges and 2 dish-washers.

The grand salon is a substantial, adaptable room of 70m². With its home-cinema projector and screen, it is suitable for anything from wedding receptions to yoga studio. There is also a well-equipped gym, games room and dining room. along with cellars and the essential laundry.

The property is in an excellent state of repair throughout and will be sold fully furnished and equipped, complete with hotel quality bedding and towels.

Floor plans and further photographs available on request.

Exterior
The property is set in 2 acres of secluded grounds on the outskirts of the village. There are lawned terraces with gorgeous views. A flood-lit swimming pool (11m x 4m), a flood-lit boule court, several different terraces and patios offering a choice of seating areas, all with mountain views. The tile-roofed poolside gazebo has a blue-tooth sound-system and flexible seating. With over half an acre of woodland the property is self-sufficient in wood for the 3 log-burners. An arrosage runs the length of the property which is surrounded by farmland giving a peaceful and relaxing environment with abundant bird-song and tinkling cow-bells.

There is a parking area for 10 – 12 cars.

A 2-minute walk from the garden takes you down to the river – a beautiful and tranquil spot for fishing and boulder climbing!

Additional Details
The area is a paradise for hikers, mountaineers, cyclists, bird-watchers and all lovers of nature. There are several of France’s “Plus Beaux Villages” located nearby including the UNESCO world-heritage site of Villefranche de Conflent and Eus, the sunniest village in France! The famous Petit Train Jaune mountain railway is always popular with guests, as are the nearby ski resorts of the Pyrénées.

The area has a wealth of cultural attractions with many abbeys and caves and a vast array of canyoning, watersports and Via Ferrata opportunities.

It is a renowned fruit-growing region and as you head towards the coast along the “Route des Vins” you will see vineyards growing many well-known grape varieties. There really is something here for all the family.

Revenue Generation
The current owners have lived here since 2012 and in that time established a thriving business with an excellent reputation. They offer a specialised service to large groups of 3-generation families, groups of families, or sports/mountaineering clubs. The accommodation is extremely flexible and can cater for groups of any size from individuals up to around 30 people. In between larger bookings, the gites are let as individual units combined with B&B / chambres d’hotes.

Future Potential: The current owners have chosen to run the property simply as a husband and wife team with only very occasional help for whole-house changeovers. Whilst there is proven demand throughout the year, the business has been mostly closed through the winter months.

There is enormous potential for further expansion from developing organised group holidays, such as retreats and special interest breaks, (yoga, painting, cycling, walking, boot-camps, etc.) to tapping into the lucrative wedding and corporate team-building markets.

The building was originally operated as a hotel and restaurant which could presumably be re-instated if desired.

Are you seeking a completely new way of life? Would you like to escape the rat-race and truly be your own boss? Are you excited by the prospect of an opportunity to use all your skills to provide a quality service and meet some wonderful people? Would you like to live in a most majestically beautiful part of the world, renowned for 300 days of sunshine and the most amazingly clear, blue skies? Contact us now - this could be for you!!
