This is a professionally-run holiday village located just 1500m from the region's biggest attraction - the Lascaux II caves (replica of the Lascaux caves, now closed to the public). The Lascaux installation attracts over 250,000 visitors per year. The Village has 12 gites/apartments, a 14 metre pool, a bar/restaurant with full drinks licence (licence IV), an independent 4-bedroom house for the owners/managers and numerous outbuildings, workshops, laundry rooms and garages.
It is run as a serious business, with the property held in a French-registered property company (SCI) and the business side as a limited company (SARL) which pays rent to the SCI. The owners are willing to either sell 100% of the shares in both companies or the whole property as a simple residence. The leasehold (the 'business') will not be sold without the freehold.
Although the village is open all year round, the bulk of the business is done in the summer months: May through to end September. Families with young children are the main clientele, as the parents can relax while the children participate in any of the numerous activities: pool, trampoline, cycling, donkey-rides, ping-pong, volleyball etc. Everyone is attracted by the proximity of the Lascaux caves (and the other rupestrian art caves in the vicinity) as well as the castles, villages and landscape for which the Dordogne is renowned.
For a number of reasons the annual turnover is not as high as it could be: it hovers around the €120k mark (no employees - the business is run entirely by a couple) but could easily be doubled with the introduction of group activities in the off-season - cooking courses, mushroom/truffle identification and cuisine, wine-tasting course, historical/archeological courses etc.
Some of the outbuildings on the estate have yet to be renovated: there's room for at least three more gites and planning has been sought - and given - for a new building to house more accommodation.

Some way north of Sarlat and the Dordogne river, the region to the west of the Paris-Toulouse autoroute (A20) and north of the Brive-Bordeaux autoroute is similar to the Sarlat region but .. with a lot less tourists.
This doesn't mean there is nothing to see: au contraire, there is a wealth of detail to be observed in each unspoilt (and undiscovered) village, each church and each cave. Restaurants tend to offer more copious dishes and prices are more reasonable.
le château de Hautefort
The charm of the region lies in the unspoilt nature of the countryside, the picture-perfect villages and a rich heritage of churches, abbeys and chateaux. Above all, Dordogne is home to two (at least) of the most remarkable prehistoric sites in Europe: Lascaux and Font de Gaume.
- 1500m from Lascaux II
- 5 hectares of meadow and woodland
- all services in Montignac - 5 minutes
- profitable going concern
