Tuscany in Languedoc!! Exceptional Property for sale!  Prestigious Estate from the 18th Century entirely renovated and furnished as well as tastefully decorated with some original works of Art, 4 reception rooms, guesthouse, guardian's house, chapel, all bedrooms en-suite, a beautiful park with pond and pool, 30ha of land with a vineyard with its own wine label, 500 olive trees, prairie, wood, ideal for horses, gorgeous unspoiled views, quiet and not isolated, can be easily financially self-sustaining  ***AAA Location***

In the middle of a valley in a dominating position surrounded by its vineyards, you find this totally outstanding and fully restored prestigious property from the 18th Century with its beautiful park and ponds - a haven of peace. The site dates back to Roman times and traces of buildings from the middle Ages prove a long history. The property surrounded by smooth rolling hills evokes a Tuscan convent. The majestic entrance to this exclusive property is approached by a private driveway, bordered by Cypress trees and colourful oleanders with the stunning views over the vineyards, woods and mountains across to the Pyrenees.  

This prestigious Estate is entirely renovated and sold fully furnished as well as tastefully decorated with some original works of Art.  

Former outbuildings have been harmoniously integrated in the existing 18th century Maison de Maître and constitute today a large unique family home. There is a further 150m² of space that can be converted into four en-suite bedrooms and the possibility to build and create more living space depending on the project. The restoration work has been directed by an architect; only high quality products have been used and the level of finishing shows the attention to detail. A contemporary style well balanced with original old features (wooden parquet, monumental staircase with wrought iron railing, exposed beams, painted cement tiles) and modern materials and features such as huge iron windows and doors, tiles and worktops in slate and a 4.5m long fireplace create its own charm and ambiance. The rooms are very bright offering good volumes and a relaxing countryside view all around.  

Further with very little changes the property could become easily financially self-sustaining with the vineyards and as a luxury B&B with Gites, still keeping the main residence for private use.

This beautiful home surrounded by the gorgeous park with its water feature, the lovely and relaxing pool area, the unspoiled views over smooth rolling hills and vineyards across mountains and the sound of the singing birds, all makes it a little paradise on earth.

Wine Domaine
The wine was sold a few years ago with its very prestigious Appellation under Vin de Pays in bottles with its own property label by a trading company. The wine was elaborated on a neighbour property; a very convenient way to have its own wine. This solution can be continued and the wine production could even considerably be extended. Further the land would allow to plant around 10ha of further vineyards to increase the production. Today for reasons of simplification the harvest goes to the cave cooperative. The material needed until the harvest is part of the sale.  All agriculture equipments for the vineyard and the maintenance of the property are included in the sale.

General Condition
All buildings are in excellent condition and decorated with style and fully furnished. Oil central heating system, in some bedrooms are electric heaters.

The whole property is immaculately maintained, inside and outside!

A wonderful property - various articles in interior design publications and books are testament to this!
