Centrally located, very successful chalet/guest house in perfect condition with 6 en-suite rooms, plus 1 ensuite bedroom owners'/staff apartment with independent access.

A 3-star chalet (rating from Gites de France) with five spacious, characterful and well-appointed bedrooms, one of which is a very large two-bedroom suite. Each guest bedroom has an en-suite shower room and WC. The accommodation is flexible, offering double, twin or family rooms sleeping up to 14 people. There is potential for a greater capacity using bunk beds etc. if required. The chalet has a large guest lounge with a wood-burning stove, bar and coffee machine, big-screen home cinema and a selection of English books, magazines, games, CDs and DVDs. The lounge has direct access to a sunny terrasse with mountain views. There is a good internet connection with WIFI throughout the chalet.

Adjoining the lounge, a large guest dining room, seating 12-14 people, leads through to an open-plan kitchen that was built expressly with chalet catering in mind with lots of storage and generous worktop space to plate-up. On the ground floor there is a heated equipment room for coats, boots and skis, and a sauna - perfect for relaxing tired muscles after a hard day on the slopes! Externally there is a 40m2 deck (recent), with tables/chairs/parasols and a 100m2 garden mostly laid to lawn. In front of the chalet is another patio area of approx 25m2.

There is also a private owners'/staff apartment with an internal door into the chalet. It has a lounge-diner and an en-suite bedroom with independent access from the rear of the building. The chalet was heavily renovated in 2005 when all external walls and roof space were insulated and all new wiring & plumbing, mains sewer connection and gas central heating (with condensing boiler) were installed. Continuous care and attention by the owner-operators has meant that the chalet decor and bathrooms have remained in excellent condition. There are no immediate works needed, although there is potential to extend the chalet and add a larger owners' annexe if required.

Prospective buyers might be interested to know that the chalet currently supports a large mortgage, based entirely on the business turnover (85-95K EUR annually). The business has 14 years of consistent trading history, and French professional loans are currently available at very low fixed-rates in the region of 1.6%.

Other Information

Support and training available, very easy to run. We currently run the chalet with 2 staff and have no day to day input during the season. We choose to run in this fashion to allow us to be with our 3 children in a seperate house near by. The business covers all food and transport costs for our family and supports a 300k€ mortgage easily. Owner operators would find it a very profitable business.
