Exclusive to Christie's International Real Estate. We are delighted to introduce the sale of an exceptional estate ; a charming hotel and restaurant, with multiple seminar and reception rooms, in the area of Niort, one of the largest financial districts in France. This exceptional property has, over the years, hosted family events, fireworks displays, professional and political meetings, art exhibitions, classic car shows and musical concerts.
This splendid 18th century estate, which once produced its own wine, was renovated in the 1990s to become a superb hotel and venue.
The main body of the house is a 20th Century two-storey neoclassical building, featuring a square at each end of the building. Offering approx. 3540 m² that has been fully renovated, as well as approx. 870 m² of additional buildings that could be renovated in the future.
Built on 3.6 hectares, the estate has plenty of parking space, an inner courtyard of almost 3200 m2 and two gardens of 3600 m2 and 5100 m2 respectively (enclosed by walls).
The 33-room Hotel consists of 27 3-star rooms and a studio. All the soundproofed rooms are en suite and decorated with care. They vary in size and comfort and are all equipped with a desk, TV and internet access. The hotel has 2 rooms for people with reduced mobility, family rooms and meets all hotel standards.
A lounge/bar (Licence IV) and a spacious wellness area including an indoor swimming pool with bar, a terrace and a fitness room guarantee relaxation for its guests. The hotel, sold furnished and equipped, is mainly occupied by the loyal clientele of seminar and reception activities from neighbouring towns and a business community.
The property has 10 seminar and reception rooms of various sizes. The surface area of all the rooms is approximately 770 m2. All rooms are furnished and equipped with screens, synchronised video projectors, a sound system, computers, desks, tables and chairs.
The renowned gastronomic restaurant on the estate offers refined and innovative cuisine of the highest quality between land and sea, in a picturesque setting with stone walls and exposed beams. The restaurant is extremely welcoming with a fireplace, two dining rooms of approx. 40m2 and 70m2, a 15m2 private lounge, a terrace (with the possibility of doubling its capacity) and a cellar. There is a professional kitchen with branded equipment, reserves, two vehicles, one of which is refrigerated, and a four-room staff flat with bathroom and toilet (to be renovated). The gastronomic establishment, with a loyal clientele, is sold fully furnished and equipped.
For functionality, part of the property is privatised. This accommodation, overlooking the inner courtyard of the estate, comprises a living room with fireplace, a fitted and equipped kitchen, a lounge, three bedrooms, a dressing room and three shower rooms. The layout of the property makes it possible to envisage an extension to this private area.
This remarkable property offers you a unique opportunity to take on a prosperous business where the current staff are ready to facilitate the handover, while also leaving potential for a range of future projects, all within a domaine near an exit of the A10 motorway, less than an hour from La Rochelle and its international airport.
