A successful year round gite business with sound potential for further commercial development, this thriving gite business is in an exceptional location. It is within easy walking distance of both Lascaux IV, one of France's leading tourist attractions, and the small town of Montignac in the Dordogne. Currently configured as an owners' house plus a successful and manageable three unit gite business, the stone property also has a swimming pool and is set within a spacious garden. The three gites have been sympathetically renovated to retain their original charm and are maintained to a high standard. They are being sold furnished as a going concern with the fourth unit, the owners' house, being sold unfurnished. The business has received a Trip Adviser certificate of excellence and is occupied year round through adverts on Air B&B, Home Away and similar sites.

The main building, a Perigordine farmhouse, comprises the owners' accommodation of open plan lounge/dining/kitchen area and mezzanine bedroom and bathroom. It has a large terrace overlooking Lascaux 4 parkland, beautiful wooded hillside, the church, old chateau and rooftops of Montignac town. Attached to this is a self contained 1 bedroom gite. The gite could be incorporated into the owners' accommodation to create one complete house relatively easily. Alternatively, it could be used as a fourth letting property if the new owners chose to live off site. 

A second stone cottage is set at right angles to the main property and comprises a spacious 2 bedroom gite, with generous open plan living area and a small 1 bedroom gite.  Each holiday let has its own patio area and overlooks the 8x4m pool.

The property has a secure and spacious courtyard which easily accommodates 6 cars and leads directly into the house and cottages.

Proof of last 2 years' income can be made available to genuine interested parties. The reason for the sale is that the owners are in their mid sixties and are looking to retire.


Montignac is set within an area of great natural beauty surrounded by woodland, rivers and lakes the Vezere Valley is the capital of European pre-history and there are many sites of pre-history to choose from within the area. In and around Montignac there are many designated woodland and country walks, Chateau de Losse is close by and the medieval market town of Sarlat is less than a half hour drive. 

Visitors are attracted to this area for most months of the year for its beauty, food and cultural interests plus its many tourist attractions and outdoor activities.
