Brittany, Finistere, Sizun. Restaurant in an old watermill.
A beautiful, old stone watermill, in the Mont D'Aree National Park. Currently run as a restaurant with 3 bed roomed accommodation, 4 hectare's of land including 2 fishing lakes. If you are looking to live, and work in a beautiful area of France, then this could be a good opportunity for you. Set in proven tourist area, close to a good sized, active village. Even though there are tourist's here, the whole area is still wonderfully unspoiled, calm, and retains its "wild" feel. The air is clean and fresh. Small villages are dotted around, many now with artisanal bakeries and food producers. I'm not just writing this, I speak from experience, I have been coming to this area for many years now on holiday, believe me, its a special, magical place. Back to the property. The owner's accommodation is on the top floor, a huge 109.25m2, open plan living, dining, kitchen area. Modern, but with character, there is a handy mezzanine above the kitchen. The 3 bedrooms, and the bathroom are all off of this area. The restaurant, bar And function rooms are packed with character, beams, open fires , exposed stone work. There is also a veranda for eating, with views across the lakes. The professional kitchen is big, plenty of space to work properly, fully kitted out, and importantly has natural light, a separate washing-up area, and storage. Outside with the 2 lakes, and land there is a children's play area, a bowling alley, and a patio area, with tables for dining. The owner's charge for fishing, bowling, and pedalos on the lakes. They have been running the restaurant for 11 years. I think the land, and the lakes could be developed further, by using some of the land for camping, caravans, and motor homes. Customer's using the camping facilities may then want to fish, and use the restaurant etc. The whole area lends itself to touring type holidays. This beautiful building is a good opportunity for somebody looking to take over a successful business, and possibly develop it further, in a truly stunning area of Brittany.
