Village house in granite, sturdy and immovable not standing in its own land. Unprepossessing on the outside but prepossessing on the inside! Comfortable. Totally renovated: new electricity, eco water heater and oil central heating. Solar panels generating surplus electricity sold to the national grid (current year 1200€ reimbursed). 500m² garden with beautiful workable soil and resident green lizards and fruit trees! 7 rooms, mezzanine sitting room, large airy kitchen, large ‘cellar’ with stable attached, large garage. Plenty of storage space.
The accommodation may be used flexibly. If you wish to use part of the house as a gîte, it is easily divided with not much work. The various combinations of rooms offer privacy. There is an en suite bathroom on the attic floor, one on the first floor and on the ground floor there is an Italian type shower room (this room housed the first shower in the hamlet) and a separate lavatory.
The end room on the ground floor is bright and airy. We used it as the laundry room; it looks out onto the terrace overlooking the hills. It is perfectly possible to re locate the laundry room to the ‘cellar’ where there is running water and plenty of power points.
The hamlet is at the end of the road with woodland behind it where you may collect all the cèpes you can find in autumn. If you continue up the mountain from the woods, you will find a waterfall. This area abounds with lovely walks. The disused railway in the valley is the beginning of a walk/bicycle path that reaches the river Orb in neighbouring Hérault. There are shops in the village and supermarket; 20 minutes away the town has a market twice a week.
It is an area of historical interest. Canal du Midi is 40 minutes away in Carcassonne. Nearly 1 hour away from Narbonne and the Mediterranean Sea. Route of the St Chinian and Minervois wines. Accessible airports around the area.
