Bijou and beautiful in Brittany

This pretty little stone house is situated in Morbihan, Brittany. This is a popular investment area and a thriving tourist destination with its warm climate and sandy beaches.

The terraced cottage hides a secret – there’s a secluded fairy tale turret. Yes, it needs renovating but there is water and electricity already on site, and with a guide price of €26,000, it’s a real bargain. There are outbuildings and a small garden at the rear of the property, as well as an extra 1040m2 garden a few steps away. The property is just 35 minutes from beaches, and for someone happy to do a bit of DIY and dole out some TLC, this could be picture perfect.

Enticing in Aveyron

A real find in lovely Vailhourles, Aveyron, Midi-Pyrenees just 14km from Villefranche-de-Rouergue where you’ll find one of the best markets in France.

This large, 3-bedroom stone house gives and gives – and then gives a bit more. There’s a large garage and workshop underneath the house, with stairs connecting inside. A stunning garden gives you the most beautiful views of the local landscape and church, and there’s even an original outdoor bread oven waiting to be used. If you have ever thought about working from home but always dismissed it – think again, with this house, you’ve got bundles of room to set up an office.

A big kitchen, terraced doors to the garden, loads of space and lots of opportunities. Plus it’s ready to move into, giving you the option of doing as you wish as you go along. I can already imagine taking shelter in the cave from the summer sun with an ice cream, and winters in the cave with hot chocolate and marshmallows taking in the smell of fresh bread cooking in the outdoor oven, just lovely. Guide price €61,000 (reduced from €78,000).

Oodles of opportunity in Le Dorat, Haute-Vienne, Limousin

Now for something different, something that might appeal to you straight away or might send you running to look for a cosy cottage! This has definitely peaked my interest as it’s not just somewhere to live, but also as a business opportunity.

Located in the town of Le Dorat, about 40km from Limoges, this property has a bar and restaurant area on the ground floor along with kitchen, storage etc. If you don’t want to run a restaurant you could rent it out and have additional income.

One side of the property has two bedrooms and a bathroom, the other much larger side has five bedrooms, two bathrooms, an office, plus an owners apartment with kitchen/diner, lounge, bathroom and double bedroom. This side could become a B&B or gite, again providing an extra income. There are three garages at the rear of the property, along with a garden.

This area of France is ideal for enjoying outdoor activities such as walking, cycling, fishing, water sports and bungee jumping from the town’s viaduct, as well as taking in many of the historical towns and villages surrounding Le Dorat. Futuroscope, the award winning multi media theme park and the UNESCO World Heritage site of the abbey at St Savin are just some of the attractions the area has to offer. This would no doubt prove fruitful if a B&B was to become part of the business.

It needs renovating throughout, but it could be a spectacular and very rewarding experience, getting a local trade and custom going strong again, making new friends and giving something back to a community. Guide price: €88,000 (reduced from €130,800)
