Business Operation

Expansion Potential:

We open the gite business from May to October annually. This season could be extended with long term lets if required.
The cattery business is operated all year round and since taking over the business we have extended the building by adding three extra pens due to demand. It could be extended further if wanted.

Competition / Market:

The gite business continues to produce a healthy income as both properties are large and appeal to large families or groups of friends. The appeal is that large groups can hire a private holiday property for a fraction of the price of a package holiday and enjoy privacy and their own grounds and pool. There are not many large gites in the area offering 4 to 5 bedrooms with pool.
The cattery business is established, thriving and continues to grow due to recommendations. Some clients travel over 1 - 2 hours to bring their cats to us which is indeed a fabulous endorsement of our services.

Reasons for selling:

Family member ill health.

Trading hours:

The cattery is open all year round opening for 1.5 hours in the morning and again in the evening. The gites are open May to October with arrival/departure day being Saturdays only.

Years established:
10 years plus
