Properties like this come along once in a blue moon! With approximately 95,000 m² of “Chênes de truffes” of varying ages, the production of the valuable truffle is just at its infancy.
When you put that together with 2 fantastic villas, workshops, garages and the extra 35,000 m² of land that has the potential for many uses e.g. camp-site, all being only 35 km from the beaches of the Mediterranean, 18 km from Narbonne and 26 km from Béziers, you can see that opportunities like this rarely become available.
The 2 villas on the estate have an interconnecting door so could become one large living accommodation if required. The current owners live in the 2 bedroom villa and they currently let out the three-bedroom villa as a Gite during the summer months.
The main property has an open plan L-shaped living/dining/kitchen area. The living dining area is 38 m² with an extra 10 m² for the kitchen area. There are sliding doors from the lounge leading into the summer kitchen. The lounge has a chimney with a wood burner that we are reliably informed heats most of the house in the winter.
The summer kitchen has fantastic views over the domain, fitted kitchen units, barbecue, and grill. Sliding doors lead out to a large terrace. The windows all slide open to allow air to pass through the room. There is utility room with plumbing for washing machines etc.
2 bedrooms, 13 m² and 17 m², both have built-in wardrobes. The smaller bedroom has a possible access to the other property on the domain. The fully-tiled bathroom is 10 m² and has a large walk in shower.
The 2nd property on the domain has 3 bedrooms. The lounge dining area is a massive 42 m² with numerous sliding doors and windows allowing plenty of light to enter. The kitchen, 13.6 m², is fully fitted and very modern. There is a utility room again with plumbing for washing machines etc.
The bedrooms, 15 m², 11 m², 10 m², have fitted wardrobes. The smallest bedroom has an attached dressing area of 5 m². The bathroom is 10 m² and has a Jacuzzi style bath as well as a large walk in shower. There is a separate WC.
Outside in the garden area there is an 8 x 4 m swimming pool. There is a covered summer kitchen and dining area of approximately 40 m².
The truffle farm has 6 distinct areas with different ages of oak and different types. The first being planted in 2006 and the last planted in 2013. More information on this is available upon request. The whole domain, including 3.6 ha field, is fully fenced private.
This would be an ideal prospect to work yourself or perhaps as an investment using the properties to put in a manager.

The Aude lies in the Languedoc-Roussillon on the edge of the Pyrenees, and as usual within France, such a diverse country, there are a wide variety of landscapes. Vast areas are devoted to wheat fields and vineyards, and mountains and vast forests are scattered throughout the area. The department also has around 50km of Mediterranean coastline, which is always appealing!
The city of Carcassonne is the Aude's most proud possession. The medieval town, which was the inspiration for 'The Sleeping Beauty', boasts an incredible 52 towers and 2 enormous ramparts. A stroll around the city's old town reveals many memorable views, and even form the autoroute, when lit up at night, it looks sensational. The historical city of Narbonne, not far from Carcassone, is another favourite.
The Aude has a large number of castles, reminiscent of its Cathar history. The most impressive citadel is Peyrepertuse, which has 2.5km of ramparts.
The Midi Canal, which flows through the department, is an incredible feat of construction. It took 12,000 men working for 14 years to complete it in the 17th century, and it runs from Toulouse to Thau, passing through Carcassonne. The canal is an incredible 240km in length nowadays, it is used most by the tourist industry and is a great way to explore the region whilst admiring the landscape at a leisurely pace.
The area is proud of its customs and local cuisine, including the world famous cassoulet. Castelnaudary is considered the world capital of this particular dish. There are very strict rules over what constitutes a cassoulet - most importantly, all the ingredients must come from the Aude!
Carcassonne has its own international airport with regular flights to the UK and other European destinations, as well as a TGV train station, so travelling to the Aude is easy.
The french property prices in the Aude tend to be slightly cheaper than the average within the Languedoc Roussillon, but the major cities naturally attract higher property values, particularly Carcassonne.
