Good Monday morning! A stunning eight-bedroom bed & breakfast with chapel and picturesque views located 10 minutes from Camarès, in Aveyron France.
This property exceeds the Escapist budget by a hair (at current exchange rates, this is $543K USD), but with the income potential this property offers, it’s well worth considering. I found the current photos and reviews of the business which one can read through here – almost all five star reviews. It looks like the current owners offered walking tours, picnic baskets to-go, full breakfasts and three-course dinners. Such a dream for someone who is interested in cuisine and hosting. Only 10 minutes’ drive from the beautiful Camarès, with bakery, restaurants, and shops.
From the listing on Leggett:
At the crossroads of three departments: Aveyron, Tarn and the Hérault, this property is well located and benefits from its own micro climate. This imposing property is truly the principle building in the tiny hamlet of Rigols. Elevated, it offers uninterrupted views over the rolling countryside whether it be from the delightful terrace spanning half the width of the house or each of its numerous rooms. The south facing aspect gives incredible light and even on a hot summers day the terrace is shaded by the incredible pergola making it a magical place to dine or take an aperitif.
Well established, successful and highly rated, this B&B has been sympathetically restored. Simply move in, unpack and start your new life.
The Prieuré provides over 320 m2 of light, airy comfortable living accommodation as befits a house of this status. The large dining room with its huge wood burner is ideal for entertaining. Leading from here is a fantastic modern kitchen any chef would be proud to own, plenty of space and storage, if that should not be enough it also has a pantry. A special feature of this room are the original frescos uncovered by the owners during the restoration. The salon is light and tastefully decorated, leading from here are the 2 downstairs en suite bedrooms which have just been recently refurbished. The first floor has a further 4 double bedrooms all en suite and the largest suite has the added luxury of a spa bath. A library and chapel complete this floor adding to the grandeur of this house. The 2nd floor has a further 2 bedrooms and shared bathroom, the wooden beams adding further charm. A huge space of over 120 m2 gives the potential to create yet further accommodation.
