Description By The Vendor
Until 2007 La Fontaine was a hotel restaurant with £100k plus turnover. We have traded as a 5 room B B since we took over, but there is enormous potential for a dynamic team, who wish to operate a restaurant with rooms. The professional kitchen with the extensive refrigeration, wash-up area, personnel quarters, pantries etc are equipped to start cooking. As well as the rooms we have a client dining room / lounge, terraces, a balcony, car park and garden. To be developed there is a restaurant/café downstairs, an enormous barn and walk-in cellars. We have 4 rooms on the 3rd floor and a private lounge on the 1st floor. In total there is a massive 780m² of living space and 477 m² externally.La Fontaine is situated in the busy mountain village of Olette and offers 5 ensuite BB rooms. The pink Georgian style building and trompe d’oeil mural is picture postcard pretty. Formerly a 17th century auberge, it has been extensively renovated to offer guests every comfort while exploring region. Its thick walls keep it cool in summer and cosy in winter. This spacious house has been lovingly renovated since we, the English owners, bought the property in 2007.

Links exist with nearby popular tourist attractions, hot thermal baths, major walks, world heritage sites and the tourist train means that la Fontaine attracts year round clients and is a profitable business despite the economic climate. Income levels have been maintained but profit has been increased. Its location also attracts international guests, 26 nationalities were recorded last year. Walkers, nature lovers, skiers, gourmands, spa lovers, riders and mountain lovers all visit. Competitors, both hotels and restaurants are few and far between, 20k uphill or 14k downhill.

La Fontaine, Chambres d’hote / table d’hote is set over 4 floors, with 2 beautiful staircases linking the floors and has comfortable, spacious accommodation with mountain views. Guests have a large lounge, dining room and several terraces in which to relax. It currently has License III.

Olette’s microclimate has year round sunshine and warmth. The village has a supermarket, butchers, tabac, a pharmacy, a school, a café bar and a post office – all the necessities guests and owners need.

Fully equipped with everything in its large commercial kitchen from ovens to pots, pans, furniture, industrial washing machine, linen and glasses, crockery etc – once the keys are handed over, you can open the doors, for guests that very day.
