A rare opportunity to acquire an established and very successful Bed and Breakfast business (or could equally be run as a gîte) whichoffers superior accommodation in a lovingly restored barn retaining many original features and isin one of the most sought after locations in the Charente.
The property offers a character 3 bedroom (fully renovated and all en-suite) 'Chambres D'Hôtes' business with private walled gardens and an independent main home with 3 bedrooms (each en-suite), dating back in parts to the 16th century. Oil central heating for both properties and connected to mains drainage.
Being busy all year round is not a surprise with the business running in the beautiful village of Verteuil-Sur-Charente where the stunning château overlooks the river Charente. In this quintessentially French village there are 2 restaurants, a wine bar (selling local products and some amazing Cognacs), a riverside 'salon de thé', a convenience store, bakers, post office, florist, brocante, art gallery and of course hairdressers and pharmacy.
4 steps from the property and a keen fisherman would be in his/her element as the river passes by, but offers no risk of flooding to the property. In fact just the gentle cascade of the river is extremely relaxing and provides the property with the most idylic village setting of peace and quiet, yet a 2 minute walk to the commerce etc.
