This is an attractive and spacious, character property, originally stables, barns and staff cottage for the wine Domaine that still adjoins it. It combines modern facilities and traditional style and now offers a tranquil home with stunning views whilst still enjoying all the necessary services nearby. It is a great house to live in and to live from and, with 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, could be used as a main residence, second home, or could easily be divided into two homes or gîtes. Summer living by the pool; cosy winter evenings by the wood stoves.
Beautiful setting in a rural location, where the local village with shops including the baker’s is just over a mile away. The vibrant & historic city of Carcassonne – a world heritage site is only 30 mins drive, while the magnificent south coast beaches and resorts can be reached in an hour. For those who prefer to ski, you are only a couple of hours’ drive from the closest slopes.
For those who need easy access to the Uk, there are year-round low-cost flights to Beziers (1hr 10) Carcassonne (35 mins) Toulouse International airport (1hr 30 mins) or Perpignan, making the property convenient for visiting family and friends.
