A unique stone built 18th Century BASTIDE on the edge of the village of Flayosc, offering a spacious main house with many features including open fireplaces, old beams, traditional high windows and high ceilings, all 7 bedrooms have en suites. Also has 3 apartments within the property. On a large plot with a heated pool.

Current owners have lovingly restored it with care and attention in the provencal style with a modern twist. Set in manageable land of just under 4000 m2.

It has been operated as successful chambres d’hotes and apartments for over 12 years, and can continue as an income-producing venture, or revert to a large family house, still with potential rental income from the apartments.

Situated in a quiet residential area but within easy, level, walking distance of the medieval village of Flayosc, it has all services connected (mains water, mains drainage, electricity, propane tank (underground) and high speed internet available) and still offers scope to further improve and has many potential uses.

Already registered with the tourist authorities and established as chambres d’hotes and apartments, the unique accommodation lends itself to many other uses: it could be simply a large residential house with SEVEN bedrooms – all en suite – plus the 3 apartments; as an institutional establishment (i.e. care home); as a shared family home with income potential or continue as it is.
Viewing of this unique opportunity is strongly recommended
