A tastefully renovated 3 bedroom house oozing character with large garden, 2 bedroom gite, garage and stone building for conversion. Located in a pretty hamlet only 13 Km from Mirepoix and 38 Km to Carcassonne with the closest amenities only 8 Km. Situated in the heart of the Razès this is rural tranquility with a wonderful view, yet very close to commercial and cultural centres
At the edge of an attractive, well cared for hamlet in which many properties have already been renovated and others are in the process. A desirable location due to its proximity to Limoux and Mirepoix plus being within easy reach of the Med and ski stations.
The spacious, very light house has been renovated with care, retaining as many original features as possible – original doors, exposed beams and colombage, etc.
Enter into the farmhouse kitchen with access to the rear garden. The lovely terracotta floor tiles continue through to the large sitting room / diner with new high quality Supra Su woodburner which heats the whole house (electric radiators upstairs as rarely needed back-up).
French windows open onto the rear garden and at the front, a raised seating area gives an added dimension. The wood and tiled staircase leads to the 1st floor with its warm wooden flooring.
A large landing opens into the light front bedroom with fitted wardrobe; the rear bedroom; bathroom with old fashioned “sit bath” & wc, and finally the main suite with large sitting room / office, shower room with wc and the mezzanine sleeping area.
A large 1000 ² garden with fruit trees (figs, apples, walnuts) and a beautiful view of the surrounding countryside and sunflower fields separates the main house from the gite.
At the bottom of the garden and with its own terrace, the gite is comprised of a large open plan kitchen living room, 2 bedrooms, shower and wc. Gas central heating has been installed. With its own access, this is an ideal income provider.

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.
