The property could be used either as a holiday home or as a permanent residence. A B and B, AirBnB, my bookings, the paddocks could be leased to local horse owners who are always in need as hectarage is rare in this area of France. It could be set up as an Equestrian centre or the land simply leased to local farmers to bring in extra income. Or if you have horses of your own the grazing is excellent and there is an exceptional veterinary clinic in Sauzet, five minutes away.
