XIX century Chateau at Vernet Les Bains thermal spa town with garden and breathtaking 360 degree views and garage. Just fifteen minutes from Prades and under an hour to Perpignan airport, tgv and beaches and the ski pistes of the Pyrenees. So many income opportunities, but needs renovating! Read more ...

The chateau was built in XIX century.

It is the picture postcard for Vernet les Bains with Canigou in the background!

As you enter the private gardens of 2000m², the chateau has the best views across the neighbouring countryside. The entrance hall 8X4m, leads off to two wings. The modern kitchen with dining room, 30m² and lounge, 15m² with open fireplace and then up the oak stairs to eight bedrooms, library and office with five bathrooms.

Bedrooms or studies that measure 23, 27, 16, 18, 19, 15, 25, 10m²

Needless to say every room has a fantastic view!
All of the upstairs flooring is oak.

After the second floor accommodation you can access the turret of the castle for the most amazing 360 degree view.

The roof has been renovated and there is oil fired central heating in place.
Whilst needing renovating and some love to bring this amazing property back to its former glory it is oozing character.

There is a double garage for private parking as well as the vast driveway.

Vernet Les Bains is a curist thermal spa town nestled in the foothills of the Pyrenees Orientales. With restaurants and bars and a handful of shops, school and a market twice a week. Prades market town is just fifteen minutes away with all the amenities you could need. The buses go frequently to the train station at Prades and connections to Perpignan only an hour away from Vernet Les Bains!

The castle which currently dominates the village was built in the nineteenth century by the family of Lacvivier and Delacroix around the remains of a tour, probably erected in the twelfth century by the abbey to protect the population and store crops and partially destroyed in 1654 by French troops. In 1710, after a terrible flood that destroyed the old church of Saint-Saturnin and a large part of the old village, the abbey offers the inhabitants the lands around the old castle and its chapel Sainte-Marie du Puig, which then becomes the seat of the parish.

In the nineteenth century, Vernet became a well-known spa due to its sources. In 1834, Monsieur Morat, owner of Les Bains, sold the latter to Messrs. Lacvivier and Courderc, called the Commandants, who were to build the beautiful establishment later called the Ibrahim Pacha Hotel in honor of the stay at Les Bains de Vernet Professor Lallemand prescribes to his patient, Prince Ibrahim Pasha, son of the Wali of Egypt, in 1846 - the prince will defray the social and social chronicle and endow Vernet with an unknown notoriety. The establishment passes from hand to hand until the arrival of Count Henry de Burnay, rich Portuguese banker of Belgian origin, sole owner in 1888 with the 18 hectares, which finishes the work. It equips swimming pools, bathtubs, dry and underwater massage rooms, humming and spraying rooms, steam baths and baths, etc. In 1899, he built the Grand Hotel of Portugal, the Hotel du Parc and many other buildings. On May 6, 1906, the English weekly The World designated Vernet as the "Paradise of the Pyrenees".
