We love this beautiful and elegant country home that’s been lovingly restored in typical Provencal style.
It’s set in 630 acres of land (part of a designated conservation zone) in hills close to the medieval city of Carcassonne, within easy reach of the Mediterranean and the beaches of the Languedoc.
The house is very spacious and all the reception rooms, bedrooms and bathrooms are more than generous in size, with lots of windows overlooking the magnificent views.
It’s all furnished to a high standard with very good beds, lovely linens and a clever mix of antiques and family heirlooms that blend together to create an elegant and uncluttered ambiance.
Adjoining the main house is a charming cottage, perfect for a romantic escape. The cottage can be rented as part of the main house for larger groups, or on its own during the off season.
A wonderful family kitchen dominates one side of the elegant hall and has a big dining table that can be extended. There is also a formal dining room as well as outside dinning for 22.
The pool is set slightly away from the house and has a good pool house with plenty of seating and sunbathing space, music and a karaoke machine.
The area provides a raft of activities for those looking for an active holiday. It’s especially good for horse riding as horses can be brought right up to the house.
Guests can use the courts at the local tennis club and the owners have all sorts of suggestions for lovely days out, from trips to nearby Mediterranean beaches, to cultural activities in UNESCO-listed Carcassonne, which has a packed summer programme of festivals, concerts and fairs.
This is just a selection of some of the villas we represent. We are constantly on the lookout for new properties to add to our portfolio and are always delighted to look for that very special house if you haven’t found what you are looking for. Properties are available throughout the year by arrangement.
So do call, we would love to talk to you.
