Building Feature:


Escape to the Country !!!

This is your opportunity to live the dream and move to rural France.

This 17th century Barn / Longere has been tastefully converted comprising:

  • Main house with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms
  • PLUS income opportunity:
  •           3-bedroom gite
  •           PLUS a further 2/3 bedroom gite awaiting your renovation
  •           PLUS outbuildings - to make into a further gite
  • PLUS approx 1 acre of land including cider apple orchard and adjacent field, also has a stone-built well and stone-built bread oven

 ....and that's not all.... both main house and gite are to be sold FULLY FURNISHED and ready to go - just bring your suitcase and move in!

Valued at Euros 320,000 in 2010 - now available at £195,000 for quick sale.


The property is South-facing, with views over open farmland and has two patios, both on the south side of the property to take advantage of this. This also means that it absorbs the sunshine so reducing heating bills.

The night skies are so clear that it is very nearly a Dark Sky classification - if you're into star-gazing it is ideal. 


Situated right on a marked cycling route - perfect holiday home for cyclists.  .... Or buy some bikes and hire them to guests!!

Advertised with Brittany Ferries and Owners Direct. Inspected and approved by Gites de France - just contact them and you can advertise there too. 

This is a potential goldmine - yet to be exploited ... do you have what it takes to make a success of this?

Alternatively - it would make an ideal retirement home + plenty of room for your family to visit - it is cheap enough to purchase without the need to make an income from it, especially as we are selling at £50,000 less than the valuation


The property was valued at 320,000 Euros in 2010 - and this was before we bought the 2nd gite (for renovation) and the apple orchard - it was a semi-detached house in 2010 and is now fully detached. 

If you can access this link, this is still on line from 2010:            listing-house-and-gite             15342.html


If you want to look it up on Google - search for 53540 Laubrieres and go East, looking for "Monfouche".  It has up to date photos there too, taken August 2013.


We are offering this for sale for a limited time for £195,000 - or the equivalent in Euros


VIEWING:  Come and visit us any time from now until the end of August.  Please contact to arrange an appointment first


* If you decide to phone us please do so in the evenings and ask to speak to Dave Watson.
