Price: 320,000 euros or sterling equivalent (No agents fees)


Lovely renovated four bedroom house on 6,300 sq.m plot 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.

We describe our home in the Lot department (46) of France as a "small piece of paradise". These are the words used by one of our bed and breakfast guests and we wouldn't disagree! However with an eye on retirement its time for us to sell up and move on, hoping someone else will spend as many happy years here as we have. The property will make someone a lovely family home and/or you could continue the successful bed and breakfast business we have built up (For any potential guests viewing this page, we are committed to fulfill any bookings made for the B&B).

The field adjoining the house (which comes with the property) is large enough for the construction of a swimming pool or even a separate dwelling. The Marie has indicated that they would allow construction on the field subject of course to approval of any plans. See The Grounds for more information.

Below we have provided a snapshot of what is on offer.
Some of the furniture and contents including special items such as two armoires and large gilded mirrors are available subject to negotiation.

The Grounds and Outbuildings

The total ground area is just under 6,300 sq.m or about 0.6 of a hectare or 1.5 acres, and includes a mature garden and a large meadow/paddock. There is a separate stone built summer house with its own bread oven, a sizeable woodshed and a working well. We do not have a swimming pool but there is plenty of space to have one installed.

The Location

Our home is on the edge of the friendly and beautiful village of Lacam Dourcet. Ideally located for the delightful and popular town of St Cere and many wonderful medieval villages plus there is ski-ing just over an hour away in the winter. The situation of the house means it benefits from full sun all year and has no immediate neighbouring properties. Click here for more information and photos on the location.

The Income Opportunity (bed & breakfast)

We originally bought the property with a bed & breakfast in mind and it has been the most wonderful adventure we have ever had. If you love meeting people from around the world and would like to run a business, this could be your adventure as well. Click here for more information on the income opportunity.
