Lonnee Hamilton of Keller Williams Mayfair is pleased to present this stunning property: a secluded manor house and gite (cottage) sleeping up to 14, set in a tranquil eight-acre garden with a swimming pool in the Charente-Maritime - one of the sunniest regions of France.

Owning a B&B offers the ability to live an independent lifestyle, free of office cubicles and corporate stress. This unique character property would be fantastic for those looking to live in a beautiful, romantic setting whilst earning income.

ACCOMMODATION

Bed and Breakfast - The property consists of four stylishly furnished bedrooms, three double and one twin, all en-suite, all overlooking the gardens. The downstairs double bedroom opens directly to the garden and is wheelchair accessible. The spacious attic loft could be developed into additional bedrooms or a cinema room.  The owner's quarters are situated in the manor house and are accessible by stairway and include three bedrooms, an office and a bathroom. 

Gite -  The property also comprises  a beautiful gite with two bedrooms (one double, one twin), both en-suite. The kitchen is fully outfitted with dishwasher and appliances. Gite guests enjoy a private terrace with barbecue. 

Grounds include eight acres of land with orchard, meadows, organic vegetable garden, walled south facing garden in front of house and large terrace overlooking the pool area.

The property has three barns, which could be developed into additional cottages. The barns currently produce income through special events like wedding dinners. In addition, local planning permission has been granted to build a five-bedroom gite with swimming pool in the meadows area.
