Full description:

Exceptional chateau for sale in France. Completely renovated and comfortable 11th Century French Château-fort. On a hilltop surrounded by forest with a view of the Mediterranean in the sunniest part of France - The Eastern Pyrénées.

This part of the Languedoc (Roussillon) is noted for its music festivals, historic monuments, fruits, flowers and wines. As other parts of southern France become crowded (and polluted), the charm, quiet and better climate of the Pyrénées Orientals appeal to the more imaginative buyer.

This domain of twenty five acres has 360 degree protected panoramas - North and East over the river valley's farms and villages, medieval ruins with a Charlemagne chapel to the south and snow capped peaks to the west. It is 36 kilometres from the Mediterranean coast and 75 kilometres from Pyrenees ski resorts.

Its history involves royal family events, feudal marriages, celebrations and passionate chronicles of past centuries.

Grand, though not overwhelming, this château with its Romanesque arched windows, leaded glass, wrought iron gates, heraldic carvings and 14th C. well and other 14th C. additions, would suit a couple, family, relais or conference centre. Available fully furnished (with the exception of certain family antiques) one need bring only a toothbrush.

The interior living space is over 7,000 square feet (650 sq.m.), not counting terraces, stairs and baths. There are eight bedrooms and eight and half baths. Two of the eight bedrooms with their two baths easily form a separate servant/guest or rental apartment.

For entertaining there are four rooms plus the three donjons, two studies, four terraces and the courtyard. At the garden/pool level there are four exterior entertaining areas.

From the castle entrance, there are miles of safe paths that lead into delightfully scented foothills of parasol pine, mimosa, cork and olive. One path leads to an ancient hermitage whose hermitess is a composer and instructor of music. Close to the castle gate is a 15th C. chapel with its fabulous Baroque altar. At the disposal of the castle owner though maintained by the village, it has fine acoustics for concerts and seats 150.

Exquisite gardens with in-ground sprinklers, cascading fountain, green theatre, sunken Italian secret garden and a pergola around the ancient walls - all are dramatically lit at night by spotlights and in-ground projectors. A jade coloured oversized square heated pool (with exercise jet and automatic cover) is bordered by lemon trees and a Palladian "wall" of cypress with arched windows through which roses and distant mountains are seen. (There is ample space for a tennis court using the secondary parking lot.)

A handsome wrought iron gate with jolly black birds (merles) graces the main entrance into a flower-filled courtyard with its powder/mud room on one side and the guest apartment on the other.
