Rather above budget and notable risk due to scale of works. An incredible complex of buildings with rocky stream and bridge between them. Land is not included thus requires negotiations, it comprises stone steps covered in vines up small terraces behind (and a large terrace for veg!).

Striking distance to many major metros, huge property for development into a truly dynamic multifunction hub supporting mixed housing and workshops. Not being in a region with an acceptable climate reduces appeal, however as a hub with a wonderful truly massive conservatory space it would have much appeal within. The conservatory would divide the building with river-fronting common spaces on one side, and sleeping spaces on the other.

Pleasently rural yet not completely inaccessible, a quick drive to get to decent towns; solid but needs a lot of fairly simple building work; off season is 4+ months but with big spaces would still be good, however heating would be more expensive; very few activities and nature is fairly mundane.

Whilst the surroundings don't offer too much variety and its badly connected, the tiny town (2k pop) seems fairly dynamic with unusual attractions — Street Art City (22,000m2 of art by new artists every year!), a velodrome, a (tiny) F1/F3 racetrack and also a lake/leisure area with volley-ball and probably suitable for SUP if we get boards, oh and there's a tennis club. The space itself is plenty big enough to be attractive year round, it benefits from natural surroundings being the last building on the stream. The climate is pretty similar to all the Northern Italy candidates, except a few degrees less hot in  🏖. The opportunity to have an incredible space where many of us can congregate and still have lots of personal space may outweigh the negatives.

Environment fairly boring northly agricultural terrain; theree's a few paths on the doorstep and forests for biking and horse riding, plus river canoeing all 10mins

Services whilst not connected it has all services including a covered market, local towns Nevers and Moulins are 35mins drive

Access station 20min (car, 1h bike) 2h30 paris 1h Nevers; Clermont 1h45; driving bourges/mont lucon 1h; clermont 1h30; bus Moulins twice daily (maybe res req by tel?)
