A once in a lifetime opportunity to own a rural Chateau, enjoy an exceptional quality of life and run a successful yoga retreat currently listed in the 'Top 10 Worldwide Best Yoga Retreats' by the acclaimed Gayot and Fox News websites.
Currently operating as a financially successful yoga retreat business, with an asset-based ROI (return on investment) of 14.2%, and a net profit margin of 90%+.
Nestling in a green and tranquil valley in the beautiful foothills of the snow-capped mountains of the Pyrenees, this 17th century rural chateau is set in 18 acres of wooded hills and wild-flower meadows around a small lake.
The Chateau and East Wing, built in 1772, have been extensively renovated with central heating, double glazing throughout, renewed plumbing and electrical wiring in 2007/8. It is now an elegant, comfortable home with many of the original features retained. The Chateau and East Wing comprise 16 rooms (including 5 bedrooms), and 2 bathrooms and 2 shower-rooms.
The yoga guest accommodation comprises two separate buildings:-

Spring Cottage: a renovated and converted stone barn, with 3 en suite bedrooms, kitchen, lounge, patio and rockery garden.
The Grange: a renovated and converted large stone barn with 7 en suite bedrooms, 2 kitchens, lounge, full length balcony, patio and pergola.
The retreat enjoys the luxury of having a choice of two complementary yoga studios:-

The first studio is located on the top floor of the Chateau. It is centrally heated, carpeted and fully equipped. Adjoining are two therapy rooms.

The second studio is housed in a renovated stone barn with a wooden floor. The rear wall is built into the rock-face that extends from ceiling to floor. This provides a dramatic back-drop to a cool and relaxing yoga studio; ideal during hot summer days.

We are just 80 minutes south of Toulouse airport with regular flights from Gatwick, Heathrow, Birmingham, Bristol, Leeds, Edinburgh, Belfast and Dublin.

Carcassonne airport is 90 minutes away, with flights from Stansted, East Midlands, Liverpool, Dublin, Shannon and Cork.
