This astonishing large Bastide is located in South France, Languedoc Roussillon, South of France, in a village with some amenities in the Minervois Corbières. The Bastide and the Gîte have been entirely restored in 1995 with taste preserving all its charm, character and authenticity like fireplaces, stone floors, original terra cotta floor tiles and a painted ceiling. Very unusual and comfortable is the fact that most of the ground floor rooms have direct access to the very charming south facing garden offering complete privacy with a large pool.
The buildings are L-shaped and each building, as well the remaining convertible buildings benefit from independent access to small, quiet typical village roads. A quiet location in the heart of a village, walking distance to shops, near a market town, only a short drive to catch the motorway or get to the sea and international airports, a large sunny garden, holiday lettings and further business potential or a large family home, ready to move into and last but not least plenty of charm and character. All together an outstanding property with plenty of assets and charm!

The Bastide and the Gîte-house are in very good condition and ready to move into. Maybe you wish to update a few minor things to your taste. Gas central heating with some original sculptured cast iron radiators, partly new double glazed joinery some windows left as single glazed, wooden shutters. The outbuildings are sound and not used today.
The property lends itself perfectly to welcoming either a large family and/or to have a business with great further development possibilities. The whole property radiates charm and peacefulness!
Minutes from Béziers and well situated to the larger cities of Narbonne, Carcassonne and Montpellier: also close to Airports, Motorway links and Railways. Tourism is the second industry of the region and is becoming increasingly popular for its ancient history and marvellous climate. Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans and Cathars have all left their mark as did Louis XIV with the Canal du Midi.
