Up And Running Bed And Breakfast House €395,000

This sturdy characteristic building is now in use as Bed and Breakfast. Around 1900 it was built as a hunting lodge for a French family. In 1942 the high part was built next to it, giving it its current character. This probably also explains the presence of two staircases, which makes the possible splitting of the building into two houses easy to realise. Because of the location and the size of the building it is very suitable as Bed and Breakfast.

The current owners receive their guests in 6 rooms, 5 of which are equipped with a private bathroom.

- On the ground floor is a large kitchen with a fireplace and enough space for a large dining table. The bar and the dining room are very tastefully decorated and are at the disposal of the guests. In the large bright living room the atmosphere of the old hunting lodge can still be tasted by its wooden mantelpiece and wall. Behind the kitchen is the utility room and the stairs to the large basement.

- On the 1st floor are 5 bedrooms. Two bedrooms are connected to each other, but can also be reached from the hallway. The wide landing is used as a library for guests. Four bedrooms have their own bathroom which are all equipped with a bath or shower, sink and toilet.

- On the 2nd floor is an attic room, a wide landing and two bedrooms each with their own bathroom. One of these bedrooms is in use by the current owners.

The front of the house faces south, on this side is a terrace with a fixed barbecue.

At the back is a large garden with a little forest. The total area is approximately 7100 m2. Enough space to make several terraces or playing fields.

The department of Creuse is simply beautiful as are the neighbouring departments of Corrèze and Haute-Vienne in the Limousin region. Like many departments it is named after the river that meanders though the landscape. Three other rivers pass through the area, the Taurion, Gartempe and Petite-Creuse rivers. Creuse is located to the north west edge of the Massif Central mountain range and is about 6/7 hours drive from Calais and about 3 hours from Paris.

The inhabitants are called the ’Creusois’ and are warm and welcoming, the area is one of the less populated departments of France being mainly rural and making the choice of properties to buy there very attractive.

Creuse has only 260 towns and villages, the urban areas are situated around the towns of Aubusson, Bourganeuf, Guéret, Sainte-Feyre and La Souterraine, these five towns form the urban centre of Creuse. This urban area is bursting with history, places to go, lots to see and many leisure activities but the major benefits of this department are the rural life and natural landscape, it is renowned for being very green and peaceful, a real haven for nature lovers with a large part of the department being covered by woodland.

There is no major industry and the economy of this department is derived from tourism, the craft industry and agriculture.

The Limousin region and especially the Creuse department is very cheap in terms of house prices. Along with other rural areas of France the demand for countryside and village property is low amongst the 'locals' as they prefer to be in or near to the larger towns, so grabbing a rural bargain is relatively easy.
