After six, busy, profitable years, we have decided the time has come to sell our "little jewel" in Aubeterre.

Our restaurant "Creperie de la Source", is situated in the centre of Aubeterre (awarded a "Plus beau village de France" ranking since 1993), which is extremely popular with tourists of all nationalities.

We are just on the corner of the main square and the first restaurant the tourists pass on their way from the Eglise Monolithe (Monolithic Church) which is the "must see" destination in Aubeterre.

And as the French Tourist Board say "With its many old churches and ancient monuments, Aubeterre-sur-Dronne is one of the most picturesque villages in France. Its location in the south of Poitou-Charentes overlooking the Dronne Valley makes it ideal for an architectural sightseeing trip.
Aubeterre’s numerous summer festivals, ranging from the Festival of Musical Nights to the Festival of St. Jacques, provide Cognac Country with an abundance of art and culture."

It's all good for business, too!

The restaurant itself has:
16 covers inside, 2 covered balconies (12 & 14 covers).
A large, properly equipped, Prep Room,
A Crepe / Galette / Panini Kitchen,

2 bedroomed apartment with large open plan living room with dining and kitchen area

Large room downstairs with its own separate access, could be used / rented out as a craft shop or as an extra dining area?

Cellar which leads to an ancient grotto that has been carved from the bed-rock and has its own well-spring that reaches up just as far as the grotto floor. It is La Source of the restaurant's name.

Price includes, building, business, fixtures and fittings - 220,000 euros

P.S We have moved back to England now, but are happy and confident that Sarah at Home in the Charente will handle all aspects of the sale in a friendly and professional way. Sarah has more photos, too!

Hi Niki,
We haven't sold yet. We've decided to get another summer from it, so it's open at the moment.

Sarah from Home in the Charente is looking after everything for us and has the figures, too. You can contact her by email:

Best wishes,

My husband and I are looking to move to Aubeterre and would be interested in talking to you about your business. Unless you have already sold it of course. We are due to visit Aubeterre for a flying visit on 20th July until 23rd July and would be interested in viewing the property on the morning of Monday 23rd July.

Can you also advise if we will be able to have access to the figures for the past couple of years and also advise if you are willing to rent the property if you are unable to sell.

Kind regards,
