The massive attached barn & loft would require permissions to convert & renovate.
There’s no heating just the massive fireplace, and there’s no water and electricity and no drainage, so bust out that tool box and those renovation skills, you’ll need the full raft to do the full renovation that’s required for the inside. BUT there’s some gorgeous interior stone walls and structural restoration seems to have begun.
The ground floor has a cement floor, while the upper floors have the original wood plank flooring to be restored.

Buying property in France after Brexit
Even though the UK has now officially left the EU, as a UK citizen, you’ll still have the right to buy property in France as a non-EU citizen. You can even rent it out if you want to.
However, you will now need to make sure you have a long-stay visa if you plan to stay in France for more than 90 days at a time.
Can I buy property in France and get residency?
Unlike some other countries, France doesn’t have a ‘Golden Visa’ or other investment scheme for property purchases. This means that for UK citizens post-Brexit, although there aren’t restrictions on foreigners buying property, you’ll now need to go through the same process as any other non-EU citizen to get a visa to live in France – and then to apply for permanent residency if you’re eligible.
