For sale by Century 21 ACI Quillan. We are delighted to be able to offer this substantial (5 bedrooms, 4 reception rooms, 3 bathrooms, garage, garden, etc). 'Maison de Matre' - a French period property - close to the historic centre of the small mediaeval market town of Chalabre, within easy walking distance of its restaurants, shops, market etc. The property was built around the turn of the last century for a wealthy local industrialist and has been restored to - and beyond - its former glory by the current owners. The property is ousing with period features including marble fireplaces, ornate corniced ceilings, original beautifully patterned tiled floors, polished wood flooring etc. It has mature, private garden equipped with summer kitchen/barbecue, which is directly accessible from all the principal reception rooms. The property benefits from central heating throughout, garage and a basement of 110 m/1200 ft. suitable for use as a workshop, exercise room etc. The current owners currently operate an upmarket bed-and-breakfast/chambre d'htes business from the property in this popular year-round holiday area of the South France.

Chalabre itself is situated on the river Hers and is just 5 minutes' drive/15 minutes easy cycle ride from the sailing and water sports lake of Montbel. The town hosts to a twice-weekly market, and in the summer there are a number of festivals in the town as well as falconry and other mediaeval style activities at its well preserved Chteau. The town is on the 'chemin vert' - the old railway line between Lavelanet and Mirepoix - now a hiking and cycle route. The nearest ski station is at Mont d'Olmes, around 45 minutes' drive to the south and the arcaded bastide town of Mirepoix (which hosts music festivals in the summer) is a 20 minute drive away. Carcassonne's UNESCO heritage site mediaeval city and its international airport are less than an hour by car. Toulouse international airport is around 90 minutes' drive.
