Services ✧ minimart, bakery, 2 restos, good pizzeria

Access ✧ 15mins to town; 1h45 train to Toulouse and its major airport (+1h bus/tram)

Notes ✧ major detractor is that it fronts onto the road, however the frontage (4 windows) is narrower than the rear (5 windows) with its garden backing onto a greenway above the little river
✦ the second detractor is that the office is currently leased so may not be usable until it expires, however should be possible to negotiate release and help to relocate (this space could be some of the coworking and maybe kitchen)
✦ the third is the winter season, being 4 months with lots of cloud cover, however this can be factored out, and as ever offer a good cheap retreat
✦ 170m2 garden, but faces north; needs a conservatory nestled at its end, perhaps with a colonaned covered section for summer and winter access

✦ the village has two functioning factories making wool products

✦ bedrooms: 2 singles, 3 small doubles; 4 large doubles; ~5 pods
✦ = 11–18
✦ workspaces: quiet 8 seats, lively 6 + 3 bar, (conservatory 4 seats)
