Full description:

This is a lovely complex of buildings based around a historic mill giving the ideal opportunity to purchase an already established and successful gite business.

Nestled in a delightful woodland setting, the property includes a main house with 4 bedrooms, separate 2 bedroom apartment, 5 other independent gites, 1.7Ha of land with pool, and all this is just minutes from village with all amenities

Dating back to 1900, the large Master's owners house retains many of the original features : large beams, fireplaces, high ceilings and thick walls. The second floor has a separate entrance and is an independent 2 bedroom apartment. The 300 year old mill house has been cleverly transformed into two gites - one even has a curved wall which housed the original mill machinery. A second stone building has been turned into a gite, laundry and games room and next to this two one- bed studio gites provide extra rentable accommodation. The rooms have exposed beams, thick walls, high ceilings and open fires.

The property is situated in 1.7ha of grounds in a very private, tranquil, woodland setting, yet is only minutes from a lively village with the necessary amenities and within easy reach of Carcassone. It has a large pool and its own river.
