Converted from what were originally farm buildings, 268 m2 of living space is currently arranged as an owners' apartment of 148 m2 (1st and 2nd floors) and a gîte for rentals of 120 m2 (ground and 1st floors).
The gîte is already up and running, taking bookings via an online agency, and has a 3-star rating (très bon confort).
