It provides flexible accommodation with water and heating provided by geothermy water. It is ideally suited for it’s current use as a B&B with a separate entrance and staircase for guests, but is very versatile and could also be easily split into two to accommodate 2 families or a gite. The fields offer excellent pastureland for equestrian use or smallholding.
