La Maison en Pierre & La Vieille Maison - For Sale

As a former guest (or perhaps connected to one) we thought we should let you know that Summer 2017 may be the final year that we look to rent out La Maison en Pierre and La Vieille Maison in the beautiful rural Vendée. We will leave on a high with the busiest ever year of bookings and we are looking forward to our visitors sharing the delights of our little corner of the Vendée.
It’s time for our next chapter and we wanted to share with you the news that we are now looking to sell the holiday properties for others to enjoy. Over the winter Mick has built a camper van and we would now like to spend more of our time travelling and seeing more of Europe. We will also continue to renovate our barn next door.
We’ve instructed a local estate agent to help us find a buyer for the houses but as someone who has previously visited it seemed like a good idea to share a few details with previous guests.
We are aware that the housing market in France is very slow, so we will be open for business with our holiday rentals as usual next year, if the houses have not sold by October 2017. We have thoroughly enjoyed welcoming our guests since 2009 and will be very happy to greet more guests in the future.
Sale Price €270,000
Although we have appointed an estate agent, we are still able to sell the houses privately. In France it is the buyer who pays the agent’s fees, so selling them privately is advantageous to prospective buyers. This will give a saving of between 10,000 and 12,000 Euros. Notaries fees are still applicable.

We are looking to sell the houses as a pair and with them will come the shared courtyard, playroom and private parking. We’ve continued to improve and enhance the houses and have just recently re-painted them. Both houses are fully insulated, double glazed and centrally heated (oil). New electrics, plumbing, roof, flooring etc.. were installed during the renovation project.

In addition, should any prospective buyers want to carry on running the houses as a business we are naturally very happy to give support and guidance.
What is included in the sale:
  • 5 bedroom house with 5 bath/shower rooms, wood burner and range cooker.
  • 2 bedroom house with 2 en suite shower rooms, wood burner, stone staircase, utility area
  • Courtyard with play barn (could be converted back to a workshop/garage)
  • Renovation project - small outhouse to front of 2 bedroom house
  • Off-road parking area for at least 4 cars
  • Both houses can be sold fully furnished if required
What is not included in the sale:
  • The large garden area
  • The swimming pool
  • The barn (where Mick & Jan live)
  • The Long Driveway
These properties would make an ideal Bed & Breakfast/Chambre d’hôte as the 5 bedroom house is perfect for guests, whilst the 2 bedroom house could be used as the owner’s house. The rooms are all well proportioned and the location is ideal for attracting tourists - in the Vendée countryside, yet only a 10 minute drive to the motorway.
