penfoldisking Posted August 1, 2007 Share Posted August 1, 2007 Hi,We're looking for some comments/sanity check on our plan to buy and run a Gites Complex in Central/SW area of France.We are a married couple (kids grown up and left) mid 40's & 50 who are looking to leave the rat race in UK but don't want to retire yet.We have relatives living in France and we have lived in Europe before.We plan on buying an existing Gites business (upto 450,000 euros) from the sale of our 2 properties in UK (1st just on the market) in the next 12 -18 months. So no mortgage to worry about. We have a private income/pension of 20,000 Euros per annum.With the uncertain nature of bookings are we going to be able to survive?(Sensible) Comments please.Also PM me if you have any good links of property agents/private sales of gites complexes.Cheers Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
