The Business
Lovely renovated four bedroom french house for sale in France. Located in the stunning Lot countryside close to St Cere and the Dordogne Valley with income opportunity. Currently running as a successful bed and breakfast business.

The Business Opportunity

Fancy being your own boss? Want to live the dream? Here is a ready made opportunity to take over an exisiting successful Bed & Breakfast business in the Lot department, one of the most beautiful parts of France.

Ok, so it can be hard work running a B&B but the rewards can be amazing. During our time here we have met so many fascinating people from all over the world. Some of them have become friends and we get many offers to visit them in their countries - in fact we have done just that on holidays to Australia and New Zealand.

We have been running the business for 8 years and built up an excellent customer base and a top internet placing on the search engines. Our business comes from a number of directions although we have concentrated our marketing efforts in a few specific areas. We believe you need to set yourself apart from the competition and to that end we have picked two areas that make us stand out - walking holidays and vegetarian meals on top of the normal B&B customer base. A new owner need not follow these but the reputation and market is already established for you.

We appear on the first page of Google on a number of search terms including:
"bed breakfast st cere"
"bed breakfast lot france"
"walking holiday lot france"
"walking holiday dordogne valley"
"vegetarian lot france"

Unlike many Bed & Breakfast places in France, that have guests staying one or two nights, our average stay is between 6 and 7 nights with some guests opting for stays of up to 14 nights. This makes the business easier to run and more cost effective than lots of short stays. It also makes the business more interesting as you get to know your guests.

Currently, our season runs from the end of March to mid-October but we have taken guests at other times. We like to have a holiday in the winter and we also have another business that keeps us busy in the off season.

The sale of the house will be on the basis of a private home. If you are interested in taking over the existing business rather than starting a new business, then subject to negotiation we will include the two websites, the goodwill and market presence and support from us to continue the business. The price can, also subject to negotiation, also include many items of furniture plus fixtures and fittings to carry on with the business.

You can view the business in more detail by clicking on the links for our two websites below as well as seeing guest's comments at Tripadvisor.


Do take a look around if you are interested.
We will be glad to answer any questions you may have and of course we will welcome the chance to show you around our house for sale in the Lot if you make an appointment. Our contact details are:
