Looking for a B&B business to buy in France? Check out these opportunities, there’s something for every budget
Running a B&B business in France can bring in a healthy revenue stream if the property and the business are managed correctly.
While the location is important – you need to have easy access to airports, amenities and tourist attractions – buyers also need to be prepared to market the business effectively and think practically about the property they are going to buy.
If you are looking to invest in a B&B business in France, here are five options to explore.

Set in the heart of the Var on 172 hectares of land, this stunning bastide property(HH-12417665) in Brignoles is just 45 minutes from Aix-en-Provence and 60 minutes from Nice Airport.

There is also a caretaker’s house with three bedrooms.
Outside, there is a terraced olive grove and picturesque lake for summer bathing. Guests can also enjoy the swimming pool and tennis court. An element that makes this property particularly special is the wine that it produces from around four hectares of vineyards, the current owners share it privately with friends and family, and it could be a great attraction for potential B&B guests.
The property has been valued at €8,400,000.
