Dordogne - Gite business

Owner's apartment and commercial premises

6 independent gites


€446,000 * (ref: 132)


View of Chateau Beynac from the gites


There are parts of the Dordogne where the visitor is in danger of getting severe neck strain due to the profusion of hill-top chateaux and picturesque villages clinging to the rock face at every turn of the road. Such a section is to be found between Vitrac and Bézenac in the Dordogne valley.


This property is right in this section, about 500m from the river itself and with three imposing castles on the horizon. An excellent location, in other words, for exploring the area, visiting castles and gardens, villages and markets.


What's for sale is one big building, covering 250m² on the ground floor and the same on the first floor. The ground floor is divided into a spacious service apartment (bedroom, lounge, kitchen, bathroom etc), an en-suite guest room and a commercial unit of some 100m² used in the past to sell pottery to passing tourists.


Upstairs is divided into 6 more or less identical rental units, each with double bedroom, bathroom, kitchen/dining area with folding bed. Each gite has its own terrace out front and use of the grounds - about 5000m² of lawns and trees. No pool.


This is not a luxury development: the building is contemporary, functional and in good order but not 'olde worlde'. The gites are sold ready-to-let and the commercial unit has electricty, water, wc, and shelving ... with a secure outside space for exposing wares.


Our opinion:

Whatever it lacks in old world charm, this property has the essential ingredient: location. It's right where the tourists want to be - between La Roque-Gageac and Beynac on the river Dordogne - and it offers cheap and cheerful accommodation. Coupled with a dynamic business operating out of the commercial unit on the ground floor, a couple should be able to live very comfortably from this business. Up until now it has been run as a pottery centre ... but plenty of other possibilities come to mind: a restaurant/snack bar, a gallery ... one could even put a spa into the space.

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.


The region south of the Dordogne river is carpeted with vast forests of oak punctuated with fields and stone walls. Dwellings tend to be grouped in fortified villages and bastide towns with high walls and narrow mediaeval streets.


North of the Dordogne river the landscape becomes wilder with rivers cutting deep gorges through the honey-coloured liestone. In the region - the Golden triangles - between Dordogne and Vézère river valleys - one finds the principal pre-history sites of the Perigord


Sarlat is the uncrowned capital of the Dordogne: all roads lead to this uniformly lovely town with its honey-coloured stone houses and public buildings, its museums, galleries and biutiques, its cafés, restaurants and - especially - its weekly market.


Winters can be cold but summers are inevitably hot and rain-free.
