Full description:

This superb country house comes with gite and stables and stands on 5.5 hectares of beautiful, landscaped gardens and grounds ( approximately 15 acres) and surrounded by rolling hills, vineyards and oak forests.

The property, which faces south, dates back to medieval times and has been tastefully restored and modernised and maintained over the years.

This gorgeous property is located in the Vere Valley and is near the towns of Gaillac, Albi, and Cordes-sur-Ciel. It is also close to the delightful village of Castelnau-de-Montmiral and there are wonderful views of the hilltop bastide from the grounds. Gaillac is just 10 minutes' drive and has train links to Toulouse and Paris. Toulouse airport is a 50-minute drive; Carcassonne and Rodez airports are under two hours away.

The countryside surrounding the property is one of rolling hills, vineyards and medieval villages. The house is approached along a drive with vineyards on both sides and the grounds are bordered by one of the largest oak forests in Europe.

The equestrian facilities include a newly built stable block with 3 boxes and a tack room. 2 of the stables have rubber mat flooring, electricity and water connected. There are currently 4 electrically fenced connecting paddocks with two additional field shelters and a large round exercise pen. There is wonderful unlimited riding through the adjoining Gresigne forest and the area is well known for endurance riding.

The property has 4 double bedrooms, 3 of which are en-suite with the master bedroom also having a dressing room. There is a large attic space that could be converted to provide additional bedroom space if required.
On the ground floor there is a 55m2 kitchen dining area with large adjoining utility room. The kitchen was renovated in 2009 and has a wonderful stone floor and large island unit.
There are 4 additional reception rooms, 2 with wood burning stoves and the study also has the original brick built bread oven. There is also a downstairs cloak room.

Each room in this beautifully restored home has a multitude of original features which include stone floors, oak beams and floorboards, and colombage walls. There is even a charming 'four a pain' or bread oven in the music room. As well as retaining as many of the original features as possible, the house has also been fully modernised for comfortable and luxurious living. The property has oil-fired central heating with under-floor heating on the ground floor, double glazing, a water softener system, power showers, and extensive storage areas.

Adjoining the house is a totally self-contained gite/maison d'amis. There are two double bedrooms, a third mezzanine bedroom and two bathrooms. Open plan kitchen living space with wood burning stove. The gite can easily be incorporated back into the main house simply by opening doors if a larger family house is required. The maison d'amis also has a large private terrace overlooking the gardens and grounds.

The gardens are landscaped with newly planted trees and flower borders. A clematis clad pergola provides the perfect place for al fresco dining with a view of the bastide village of Castelnau in the distance. The gardens and paddocks total approx 15 acres which also include areas of woodlands that provide plenty of fuel for the wood burners and lovely private walks. There is a 10m x 5m swimming pool set amongst the gardens also benefiting from the views.
