This elegant and unusual stone property is very well located in the greater Montpellier area, Languedoc Roussillon, South of France. There is only a short drive to restaurants, shops and a market as well as to the Mediterranean Sea. Arriving at the entrance gate, already a good feeling overcomes the visitors and instinctively one knows that here is a truly beautiful property hidden away. The medieval house, the first part going back to the 14th Century, has kept its nice visible and attractive stone façade. It offers very comfortable indoor outdoor living with large French doors accessing the various terraces and swimming pool courtyard. Two rooms are really impressive with the vaulted high stone ceilings and as well the stone staircase is an original feature. All rooms are very bright and high, the master bedroom has a high 'plafond à la française', and are overlooking the beautifully landscaped grounds adorned with Mediterranean species. In total there are 5 bedrooms with the possibility to create at least 2 further rooms with a new floor in a 5.6m high 1st floor family lounge. The heated swimming pool is well sheltered in a lovely courtyard with a large summer lounge from where a gorgeous view can be enjoyed over the garden and vineyards across the mountains beyond. The grounds offer various areas with beautiful trees, shrubs and flowers all year round, a large orchard, a nice field to play ball - and the smell of jasmine is in the air. This stunning property offers an exceptional setting just minutes from all amenities.
