B&B and gîte complex in Mediterranean village
6 rental units and a B&B in self-contained domaine in village centre
The Languedoc has more or less a bit of everything: mountains, rivers, vineyards and mediterranean coastline. This property is all about the last two - sea and wine.
Located in a wine village surrounded by a sea of vines the estate is no more than 10 kms from the interminable sandy beaches of the Mediterranean Sea.
What's for sale?
- a self-contained estate in the centre of a compact and unspoilt wine village
- the main house: a 240 m² manor house which is used as a 3-bed B&B giving on to central courtyard/garden with heated pool.
- two gîte duplexes, each with living-room, kitchen and two bedrooms
- two second-floor 2-bedroomed apartments
- ground floor apartment
- manager's two-room flat
What is for sale here is a business, not a retirement retreat or holiday home. At present, the owner runs a B&B throughout the season and manages the two gîtes and their weekly turnovers. Three other apartments are let out on long-term leases. This arrangement allows the business to be run by one person while ensuring a regular, if modest, income throughout the year.
Potential buyers should consider the more dynamic option: running the B&B and bringing all 5 apartments into short-term gîte-letting mode to maximize income over 24 or so weeks a year. There is no reason why the B&B should not work all year round, as could the gites - given the nearby urban centres' thirst for winter weekends. (Montpellier and Toulouse are about an hour away).
Please contact us for further information and pictures. As this is a going concern we can provide accounting for the past years showing turnover and profit margins. The best period for visiting the property is probably in the off-season, October to March.

The Mediterranean coastline from the Rhone delta to the Spanish border is essentially one long strip of sandy beach broken only by the odd lagoon and rocky outcrop as one approaches Spain.
There are some fairly ugly high rise developments here and there but nothing on the scale of the Costa Brava. Traditionally swampy and malaria-ridden, the coastal plains were never really settled and there are very few old villages or even ports. Cap d'Agde, Port la Nouvelle and Sète being the exceptions.
Just above the old 'swamp line' there are a number of old villages which were built with an eye to safety: from marauding pirates, from mosquitos and from sea storms. Near enough to the coast for fishing expeditions they had a hinterland of large expanses of land perfect for vines: Fleury, Salles, Vinassan and so on.
Today, the main attractions of this coast are Gruissan (site of the film "Betty Blue" with its trademark chalets on stilts), the Nature reserves at Ile-ste-Lucie and the seaside resort of La Franqui. All within 30 or so minutes of the domaine.
Inland there is Narbonne, with its cathedral and Roman remains, an excellent wildlife park at Sigéan, the Corbières with its wines and Cathar Chateaux, and, just about everywhere, vines as far as the eye can see. Within a few minutes one has the AOC Côteaux de Languedoc appellation, the AOC La Clape, the AOC Corbières wines and the AOC Roussillon muscats and reds.
