Full description:

Authentic large Maison de Maître, 4 further apartments, reception room 135m², former wine cave, swimming pool on 3126m² of grounds, walking distance to amenities, great business potential

This exceptional property, built in the 1840s, was for a century and a half the heart of the principle wine-making estate in this part of the Herault region in the Languedoc Roussillon.  This stately principal mansion faces a beautiful garden, surrounded by outbuildings, which were converted in the 1990s into a range of Gites and a large reception /seminar room.  

Situated in a traditional wine-making village in the glorious Languedoc region of the south of France, this majestic property offers in total around 900m² of living space between the main house and the 4 self-contained Gites. There are another 130m² which could be converted. The main house has 15 bedrooms (7 of which are en-suite), two kitchens and their respective pantries, a laundry room, a large living room, a small sitting-room, an additional lounge area, a library and an office.  The house has plenty of original features including fire-places, a wood-burning stove, two built-in braziers and chandeliers and of course high ceilings and lovely floors.  

The beautiful, established and mature garden contains a chlorine-free swimming pool and offers many varieties of trees and Mediterranean shrubs and bushes. The house and its gardens create a self contained haven of peace and beauty, yet it rests in the heart of a thriving village with all local amenities available.

A unique property ready for development as a residential business!
