The business for sale here is a successful mountain hostel devoted to VTT (mountain bike) enthusiasts and hikers plus a traditional Pyrenean farmhouse, two big barns and a bit of land. The location could not be better: between the infamous Port de Balès and the towering Col de Peyresourde in the Vallée d'Oueil. Although there are numerous, signed VTT trails in the area, the location suggests use as a road-cycling centre might be more lucrative.
The property includes:
* a refurbished traditional 18th century farmhouse with large farm kitchen (bread oven and Godin range) two double bedrooms and unconverted attic space. State-of-the-art wood-fired heating system provides both hot water and central heating in farmhouse and gite.
* a two-storey gîte d'étape (group gîte) with accommodation for 12 guests. Vast living-dining area with equipped kitchen. 3 bedrooms (small dormitories) sleeping four people. Each room has shower and wc.
* 2 two-storey barns (stone-built) which were ear-marked for conversion into two more gites. Water, electricity and mains drainage on site.
* small field with veg patch.
The whole complex is on the edge of a lively village which has a good restaurant. About 12 minutes from the spa town of Bagnères-de-Luchon (although Alberto Contador did it in about 7 mins on the 2010 Tour ... but he was on a bike).
It's a business with two seasons: cycling and hiking in summer and skiing in winter. The nearest resort is just 3 minutes up the road (Bourg d'Oueil) and the big resort of Peyragudes is 15 minutes away.
Currently run by a French couple this business could really take off if exposed to an international clientele. Someone with internet marketing skills and who spoke English could really put the business on the map. The property is in good condition (roof, timbers, electrics and plumbing all sound) and ready to be developped ... and the price is right.
