Looking for a B&B business to buy in France? Check out these opportunities, there’s something for every budget
Running a B&B business in France can bring in a healthy revenue stream if the property and the business are managed correctly.
While the location is important – you need to have easy access to airports, amenities and tourist attractions – buyers also need to be prepared to market the business effectively and think practically about the property they are going to buy.
If you are looking to invest in a B&B business in France, here are five options to explore.
Grape expectations in Provence
Set in the heart of the Var on 172 hectares of land, this stunning bastide property (HH-12417665) in Brignoles is just 45 minutes from Aix-en-Provence and 60 minutes from Nice Airport. Offering facilities that would work well as a B&B, there are six en-suite bedrooms on the first and second floor, along with an office and a gym, as well as two guest rooms with en-suite bathrooms. There is also a caretaker’s house with three bedrooms.
Outside, there is a terraced olive grove and picturesque lake for summer bathing. Guests can also enjoy the swimming pool and tennis court. An element that makes this property particularly special is the wine that it produces from around four hectares of vineyards, the current owners share it privately with friends and family, and it could be a great attraction for potential B&B guests.
The property has been valued at €8,400,000.
A medieval masterpiece in Gascony
Set among the patchwork fields of the countryside in Gascony lies this magnificent château (HH-10553223) in Condom, a mixture of medieval and Renaissance architecture, with over one thousand years of documented history. It is already run as a successful business with the property valued at €1,387,000.
A private apartment consists of three bedrooms and three bathrooms, and seven additional en-suite bedrooms in the main property are used for the chambre d’hôte business. There are also four spacious reception rooms. All the interiors combine rustic charm and modern comfort, in keeping with the kind of surroundings a guest would expect from a luxury B&B in Gascony.
Further highlights include views over the battlements and river, a spectacular (secured) swimming pool and a two-bedroom gatekeeper’s apartment.
