Welcome to Allez Français - Business Properties

Welcome to our business property website. This site is for properties with commercial potential in the South West of France, including the Dordogne Valley, Poitou Charentes & Gascony areas.
Here we have a superb select portfolio of Châteaux, Manoirs & Logis or other exceptional properties, each one either being an existing business or selected for its potential and desirability.
We hope that you enjoy our selection. If you cannot find exactly what you want let us know, we may have something for you in our "discreet portfolio", as some business owners do not want paying guests to know that their property is for sale for obvious reasons.
A number of these properties have been featured in TV programmes. These include :
  • Escape to the Continent 
  • A Place in the Sun
  • Grand Designs
Some have already appeared, and others are in the schedules coming up.

Bed & Breakfast / Chambre d'hôtes

Anyone renting out a ‘meublé de tourisme’ is required to declare it to the local Mairie. The definition of a meublé de tourisme is contained in the Code of Tourism Article D. 324-1:

‘Le meublé de tourisme est une villa, appartement ou studio meublé, à l'usage exclusif du locataire, offert en location à une clientèle de passage qui y effectue un séjour caractérisé par une location à la journée, à la semaine ou au mois et qui n'y élit pas domicile.’

There is a specific form that you need to complete, which you can obtain from your Mairie. We recommend that you then send this information by recorded delivery (AR as it is known in France), in order that you can obtain a formal acknowledgment of receipt of the information.

This registration requirement has nothing to do with the process of business registration; whether or not you are registered as a business, you are required to notify your chambre d’hôtes to the local Mairie.
