🏬#69 🏅65%  SOLD • €110k • rustic • rural • 1000m² mini-hub • 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.

Compare with all properties

Environment ✧ on a small plateau amongst rolling agricultural; two national parks within 1h; tracks and woods for walking on doorstep

Services ✧ 15 mins walk into village with a few shops, bakery, cafes, outdoor market and regular bus; supermarket is 10 mins bike; several better towns all close

Access ✧ stations 15mins drive or 25mins bus; Rodez airport 30mins serving London/Brussels/Dublin seasonal; Paris overnight or 7h, Toulouse 2h30

Property ✧ requires creation of windows; could really do with floor being moved up, possibly creating an extra floor
✦ main building (40x8m) is 300m2 on 2 floors; plus 150m2 porch, possibly 2 floors
✦ second building 125m2 on two floors but also probably requires floor height adjustment
✦ 250m2 shelter, could get permission to make event space and would have space for camping; this would also enable additional common spaces (or cohousing) in the second building
✦ easily 21 rooms; 13 standard rooms (window onto lane, view slightly obscured by trees), 5 premium rooms with mini balconies and outlooks over countryside; 3+ cohousing studios (in second building)

Notes ✧ See #45 nearby for comparison.
✦ Paris is 7h (inc bus) from €35 so not terrible
regular bus to Villefranche (45mins; last 8pm) and Decazeville (25mins)
✦ Can reach Rodez in 1h with 20min bike and 1€ train; Figeac also and last train is 23:30.
✦ Very likely has fibre, if not the exchange is next door (1km) or a relay would be easy.
✦ ~7ha of fields with stream traverssing, seems to have been damned but not much flow so not suitable for hydro
✦ small municipal pool (jul/aug); tennis
✦ nightrain from local station to Paris, 23:30–8:30; €30 with a seat, €60 with a bed; from Paris 19h30–5h30 (bit early for pickups)
✦ there are also daytime trains changing in Brive for €40, or Toulouse (€50) but 7h (2h of which is local train)
✦ Greenway 20mins drive away
