When one thinks of the south of France images of vines, fields of poppies, olive and pine trees come to mind.
It is in this unique environment that this character stone build property is situated. Read more ...

Forty years ago, one man had a clear calling to leave the stress of the city and build a new life. He was attracted to the beauty and peace of the countryside and specifically longed for a Mediterranean climate. He thought that this was an impossible dream but after a long search he discovered a rare pearl in the Languedoc - the 17th century Bergerie in the Aude.

The Bergerie was originally part of the neighbouring Chateau and its masonry and woodwork are remarkable. A labour of love started in 1985 to renovate this building. Today, the Bergerie boasts of two spacious 2 bedroom homes and two outbuildings that can be kept as is or renovated into habitable areas. The potential is enormous and only limited by your imagination. There are several original roof arches and 50-70 cm thick walls that have been protected and carefully plastered. The beauty of the original structure remains with the wooden roof beams and rafters that are visible. Originally the Bergerie was structured in four almost equally-wide parts, three of which are connected by huge open arches. This has been now divided into two homes, and two spaces that serve as outbuildings and workshop.

The property is connected to the public power supply for electricity and equipped with its own artesian well that has been supplying the Bergerie with water. Trees that were planted have fully matured, the organic vegetable garden offers its seasonal harvest and the surroundings offer numerous charming sitting areas to relax, or to enjoy a dinner 'al fresco' with friends and family that are sure to visit.

The uniqueness of this property is its special placement, undisturbed in its quietude and beauty. The grand house stands alone between the raw natural beauty of the garrigue and the sweetness and charm of the surrounding vineyards, with a medieval castle as its closest neighbour. It is conveniently located within a few minutes drive from neighbouring villages, shopping facilities and all amenities. The bustling, historical Cité de Carcassonne is a thirty minute drive.

The land is located at the southern foothills of the Montagne Noir, overlooking the picturesque valley of the Aude and the Canal du Midi, and on clear days, one sees the peaks of the Pyrenees Mountain Range. The regional landscape is sprinkled with medieval villages, with ruins of the historically significant Cathar fortresses as well as ancient Roman and Greek settlements, the perfect melange of the old and the new.

Come for a visit and discover how simple it is to make your dreams come true!
