Eight Bedroom Boutique Hotel with 13th Century Tower, in Historic Heart of Anduze, Southern France – €395,000

Good Monday morning! An eight bedroom boutique hotel with a 13th century tower, in the historic heart of Anduze, in southern France!

Hello, Escapists! I am back after taking a week break and I’m so excited to share more dreamy properties! Today I am featuring this stunning property that could be used as a B&B or as a generous personal home in the medieval heart of Anduze. Located 45 minutes’ drive from Nîmes, and one hour’s drive from Arles and Montpellier.

From the listing on Leggett:

The Tour de Pézène was constructed in the XIIIth century as part of Château de Pézène, and later in the XVth century enlarged and adapted as the residence of the Seigneurs of Ales and Anduze, the Comtes de Beaufort. Anduze is a hugely popular tourism destination being at the gateway of the Cévennes with the River Gardon running through. There are many attractions in and around Anduze, the little steam train of the Cevennes leaves from here and the renowned Bambouserie is near by. There are mountain walks and swimming in the river. Anduze has a weekly market has many shops and restaurants and is a short distance to lively Alès with its shops, hospital, schools etc. Just 30 minutes to popular Uzès and easily accessible to Nîmes Montpelier and the Mediterranean. This property would perfectly adapt to use for tourism and can easily provide comfortable owners accommodation alongside several gites and/or chambres d’hôtes. There is no outside space but the owners can use part of the square in front of the house.

The house looks out over on to two attractive squares and from the quieter of these, the imposing entrance is accessed by wide stone steps. Through the ancient double doors there is a 36m2 vaulted entrance hall full of historic features. Off to one side is a large bedroom with bathroom within the ancient tower and to the other a self contained apartment or gite with living and dining rooms, a 23m2 bedroom, a bathroom and laundry. There is lovely terrace overlooking the square

Returning to the hallway, one climbs an attractive stone and tile stairway to the second floor. Here there is a second apartment with two bedrooms, living room with a charming glazed balcony, a dining room and a small kitchen

A further floor offers flexible accommodation of 4 bedrooms 3 living rooms, kitchen, bathrooms etc.

In total, there are 8 bedrooms , 6 bathrooms and 5 living rooms. They are all renovated to a good standard with no more than decoration to your own taste. The layout of these gives immense flexibility to use as a large home or letting units and/or B&B. Within the 12th century tower, on the 4 th and 5th floor, which is accessed by a narrow stone staircase, there are 3 rooms and various loft spaces, which have not been developed. It would be easy to convert this space to mo0re living accommodation of even a large roof terrace with superb views

The house is in a good structural condition and has been carefully renovated. However the roof requires insulating and the oil-fired boiler will eventually require updating to town gas (adjacent). Both of these may attract government grants
