Campsite and market-gardening business for sale S France

The campsite is quite separate from the rest of the estate

Buyers are getting more than just a farmhouse with a few chalets here: this is a thriving campsite business which has been built up over the past 30 years turning over in excess of €80k. There are permanent chalets, a pool, plots for caravans, motor-homes and tents and, as an exotic extra, a cabin-cruiser on the lake for romantic weekends.

But that’s not all! The owners, who live on the other side of the lake in a traditional Lauragais farmhouse, have developed a market-gardening business growing aparagus, melons, tomatoes, aubergines etc in 6 huge tunnels which they sell on site and to local outlets. This business turns over more than €150k.

The farmhouse is a traditional 18th century house made of local pink brick with more than 300m² of living surface. About 100m² of this has yet to be fully renovated. But there are four bedrooms, two bathrooms and room for another two rooms at least. A section of the house is devoted to the market garden business with a cold-room and mushroom production.

There is a large barn opposite the farmhouse which is used to house machinery and stock seed, plants and garden material.

The campsite is quite independent of the farm and market-garden. It comprises 6 permanent chalets (sleep 5/6 guests), an ‘events’ room which is equipped with a kitchen and can accommodate 30 guests, a gym/shower room beside the pool as well as the pool itself. There are 5 plots for caravans – equipped with water and electricity points – a camper-van stop, again with water and electricity, and a number of simple plots for tents. The owner has set aside an area of about 5000m² adjacent to the campsite for an eventual enlargement of the business: there is space for another 6 chalets.

The lake is an immense attraction and it has been well-stocked with fish. It belongs exclusively to the estate and the water ids used to irrigate the market-garden business and to keep the campsite green and fresh in summer. There is now a cabin cruiser on the lake which clients can rent for €70 the night … and experience a nautical evening.

Our opinion: Campsites are very difficult to create in France. You have to buy into an existing structure. That’s why this property is both unusual and fairly expensive: however, there is space to more than double the capacity. Then there is the market gardening business which is extremely lucrative. Not all buyers may be keen/capable of running this side of things but it could be subcontracted out to local people or turned into a more leisurely organic set-up. Finally, there is another 33 hectares of land that goes with the estate – agricultural land – should anyone be tempted to do a bit of real farming!
