B&B Business
This business is run by the owners on a quite relaxed basis with very little advertising, but the house lends itself to this use with the guest bedrooms, sitting room and kitchen forming a separate entity accessed by its own door. There are regular clients who return each year; the circuit at the Val de Vienne, 10 km away at Le Vigeant, operates from April to October each year with events drawing people from all over France and beyond. There is great potential for development. They offer 5 bedrooms (letting more than 5 rooms requires registration as a hotel) and do not currently offer table d’hôtes, although an evening meal would encourage still greater business.

Taxes Foncières 967 Euros per annum.
