Maison Numero Neuf A unique opportunity to acquire this characterful Maison de Maitre, dating from the French Revolution, and successful Chambres d'Hotes/table d'Hote business. The former residence of the Marquis de Valady
was built in between the 12th century and the 14th century walls that encircled the town. The house is full of period features such as marble and wood fireplaces, oak and chestnut parquet floors, granite and original tiled floors, ceiling cornices and friezes, chestnut panelling and cast iron radiators.

The large south and west facing garden and courtyard are fully enclosed, and quite private, featuring a sunny terrace for dining.

The barn is structurally solid and contains a small cottage for renovation, 5 rental garages and a private garage, and lots of storage/workshop space. It also has great potential for conversion into extra bedrooms or gite accommodation.

The business, based on a range of 5 flexible bedrooms, attracts a wide range of clients from Pilgrims en-route to Santiago de Compostella and business travellers to tourists looking for a luxurious holiday. The business can generate over 10000 euros income per month, and is listed in many guides including Alistair Sawday's Special Places to stay.

The property is situated in a quiet road in the centre of the medieval town of La Souterraine, an economic and tourist centre for the region of La Creuse, and the gateway for the French lake district of Limousin, with an array of shops, bars and restaurants. The town has nursery, primary, and secondary schools, and a highly acclaimed art college. It is close to the European axis of the A20 N145 junction, and is 40 minutes drive from Limoges international airport. The
railway station has direct trains to Paris (2.5 hours), and Bordeaux. The area is enjoying a period of sustained growth, both economically and in tourist numbers. La Souterraine is at the heart of this growth, with the development of facilities such as the Centre Cultural, which hosts many
events including 'Jazz a La Sout' and concerts by La Souterraines' own Philharmonic Orchestra, and Cirque Valdi, which attracts thousands of visitors each year. The region is known for its unspoilt countryside, and many of its most outstanding parts, such as Crozant, Les Trois Lacs, and Lac de Vassiviere, are within easy reach of La Souterraine.
