Here is a chance to acquire a very well established restaurant/bar in the south west of France in the beautiful Cathar region of the Pyrenees Mountains. The restaurant is in the lovely village of Léran which is home to a magnificent chateau and is just over a mile from the lac Montbel which offers all manner of water sports as well as swimming in a peaceful environment with a view of the snow-capped mountains in the distance and within 40 minutes of the nearest ski resort. An international karting track is close by and horse riding stables in the village offer a range of outings.
The present owners of ‘Le Rendez-vous’ bought it as a simple café 9 years ago and have built up the business from scratch. They choose to open 2 and a half days during the winter months giving them the opportunity for winter sport and gradually building up to 6 days a week during the busy summer time. They host quiz nights, open mike nights, and other events and are at the centre of the Marchés Gourmands (Gourmet Night Markets) which attract about 600 people every Friday evening during the months of July and August. Léran is also home to a fabulous choir which is central to the yearly Music Festival and Le Rendez-vous plays a significant role in that event.
They now wish to retire and move onto their next project - to build a house nearby and are looking for an enthusiastic buyer to continue this successful business.
No experience in this industry is necessary (the current owners had none at all) though an interest in cooking would be useful. A command of French is necessary for whoever is going to be “front of house” as well as an outgoing personality and the ability to smile at the most difficult of times.
The business premises comprise a bar area with store and kitchen to the rear and a dining area with tables for 28 diners. The outside terrace is beautifully situated facing south and provides seating for 40 diners. The restaurant has a class IV license which means it can serve all alcohols with or without a meal.
The property also includes a large flat consisting of 2 large bedrooms, office/3rd bedroom, bathroom/shower-room, toilet, a large lounge/diner, and kitchen.
The sale price is broken down as follows:
Business (goodwill) - 95,000€
Business premises - 40,000€
Flat - 60,000€
A sale of the business and leasing of the premises may be considered if circumstances do not allow a full outright purchase.
