  • Potential to create 18 bedrooms
  • Situated overlooking a pretty lake
  • In a popular part of Brittany
  • DPE and GES - currently exempt

Significant price reduction: Originally priced at 340000€. The owner is keen to sell.

A former guest house next to a beautiful monastery and overlooking a lake, this property has around 750 square metres of accommodation including attached outbuildings. The principal accommodation is of around 400m2 while the outbuilding are around 350m2. It is in need of replastering, new plumbing and electrics, and could either be converted into a large home or used for commercial letting purposes.

The owner estimates that the main house alone, excluding the outbuildings, could produce a rental return of 70,000 euros per year based on renting the 18 potential letting rooms at a very conservative price of 70 euros per room, per week. The return could be so much more if the property was modernised to a higher standard and reopened as a guesthouse. The outbuildings, subject to planning permission, would make 3 two bedroom cottages or further letting bedrooms if the hotel option was chosen.

The house has benefitted from a new roof to the front in recent years with enough slates left over to retile the mansard roof to the side or the outbuildings. A very large sewage treatment plant has also been installed recently although the drain pipes need to be installed and connected between it and the property. There are also two large air source heat pumps for the heating included in the sale. These cost the vendor £6000 each. In addition there is a £4000 bi-fold door for the left hand side of the ground floor at the front. Planning permission has also been given to install 3 dormer windows where the roof needs replacing in one of the outbuildings at the side, overlooking the lake.

The garden forms a strip down the side of the lake plus a large garden at the front of the house. There is also a dense wood of about an acre in size included in the sale and a large area that could be used for commercial parking at the side which could become further garden space if preferred.


This 'Ancien hotel' is situated in the community of Plouray which is on the Brittany peninsular approximately equidistant from the beautiful, but very different coastal resorts of Douarnanez and Vannes. Douarnanez overlooks a long stretch of sandy beach adjacent to a warm, wide and shallow bay, whereas Vannes is a chic Breton town with a charming small port and many shops, cafes and restaurants. The property is in a rural community area close to the historic Abbey Notre-Dame de Langonnet. It is also close to several delightful tourist attractions such as Pont Aven, Quimper and Lorien. As such it is well placed to attract both holiday makers and people travelling down the west coast of France. It is convenient for the ferry port of Roscoff and, slightly further afield, St Malo and Caen. It is approximately 3km to the nearest village shop.

Approx 2500m2 of land + woodland

There are 4 outbuildings plus attendant rooms included in the property. These are grouped around a courtyard and a parking area. There is also an area of woodland approximating around 4000m2.


There is no central heating at present

Tax fonciere is approx. 500€ per year


The ground floor at the front has two very large rooms covering the front of the house and a normal sized room in a space that juts out into the courtyard at the back like an extension. The first floor at the front has the potential to become 5 en-suite bedrooms. The third floor at the front with the dormer windows can be turned into a two bed flat although it is just convertible roof space at present. The ground floor at the side is just one large room. I class the rest of the side of the ground floor as part of the outbuildings because an entrance alleyway from the outside splits the area,so I class them as part of the outbuilding space so just one large room at the ground floor side. The second floor at the side has five bedrooms with the potential to create en-suites and the third floor at the side has five bedrooms with the potential to create en-suites Making 15 bedrooms and a potential two bed flat plus the entire ground floor, which I've conservatively created 3 bedrooms out of, although if you were ambitious there's probably room for about 7
