Full description:

Our house is set in an elevated position with splendid views facing south across the Aude valley and the Canal du Midi to Narbonne, west to wooded hills, and east to the village’s nearby XIIIth and XIVth century church and castle. It is part of an historic village, with a shop and a post office, less than twenty minutes from Saint Chinian and half-an-hour from both Narbonne and Béziers. The house’s beautiful and private grounds include a heated pool. The part of the garden to the west of the house, at present the orchard, has the same superb views and would be suitable for building a gite or studio accommodation if desired.

THE AREA: The house backs on to a wonderful hilly area with walks of all lengths straight from the front door. The beaches - with a full range of watersports - are around half an hour away. The village has a tennis court and a riding centre. Further afield there are kayaking opportunities at all levels, while the nearby Regional Nature Park of the Haut Languedoc is a great area for walking and bird-watching. Skiing in the Pyrennees is 170 km away. Major attractions in the area include the medieval city of Carcassonne and the Cathar castles, the Sigean Safari Park, the Minervois and Saint Chinian wine regions, the Causses and the Cevennes, and the magnificent limestone caves. The airports of Carcassonne, Béziers, Perpignan and Montpellier are all around an hour distant, while the railway stations of Béziers and Narbonne are served by high-speed lines to Paris and Barcelona. Spain is an hour and a half away by car, Barcelona is now only two hours by train and Montpellier, cultural capital of the region with its fine museums, galleries and concert halls, an hour by car.

GROUNDS: The villa is approached by a drive with plenty of car-space around a grassed area. This and many other parts of the garden are watered automatically using local irrigation water. There are two small lawns, a rock garden for drought-resisting plants, a small pond, fruit trees including almond, peach, cherry, plum, apricot, olives, figs, quince and a few vines, with a herb garden and raised bed near the house.

And of course you have the Mediterranean climate, warm and dry, and everything associated with the French style of living, with traditional local markets for fresh food, wines to try everywhere, and restaurants to suit all tastes.
