Bed and Breakfast with Gite and pool
|Type:||Bed and Breakfast|
|Land Surface Area:||2000m2|
Set on a plot of approximately 2000 m2 in the centre of a small village, midway between Pont Saint Esprit on the river Rhone, and Barjac the gateway to the Cevennes mountains, between the river Ardeche and the valley of the Ceze.
The house was originally a sheep farm as there are still features relating to this in the structure of the house. It was extended by previous owners, became a very successful restaurant much missed by the residents of this village, and was changed into a chambre d’hotes by the previous Parisienne owner
The house retains a licence for catering as a restaurant, and due to the recent demise of another nearby restaurant due to retirement a good opportunity exists to reopen as a chambre d’hotes/restaurant venue for a new owner.
