Further information
Carcassonne is located in the Aude plain between two great axes of circulation linking the Atlantic to the Mediterranean sea and the Massif Central to the Pyrénées. The strategic importance of the area was quickly recognized by the Romans who occupied the city hilltop until the demise of the Western Roman Empire, later taken over by the Visigoths in the fifth century who founded the city. Thriving as a trading post due to its location, the area saw many rulers who successively built up fortifications up until the cities military significance was greatly reduced by the Treaty of the Pyrenees in 1659.

The city is famous for the Cité de Carcassonne, a medieval fortress restored by the theorist and architect Eugène Viollet-le-Duc in 1853 and added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites in 1997.Consequently, Carcassonne greatly profits from tourism but also counts manufacture and wine-making as some of its other key economic sectors.

No VAT will be payable on the purchase price of the property.
