This is a large and gracious village property with a classic stone facade. It lies central to an authentic country village in the midst of the Lanquedoc vineyards.

This is a great opportunity to be part of French village life, without compromising on your standard of accommodation. This is a large property in need of refreshment, including rewiring. It has been charmingly restored, retaining many original features, such as fireplaces and exposed wooden beams.

There are five bedrooms, an office, a charming walled courtyard and rooftop terrace, for sunbathing in privacy. The courtyard also offers complete privacy within its stone walls, some of them artistically left in their original state. This is the ideal spot to enjoy a glass of wine, or dine alfresco with friends and neighbours!

The front entrance, with its ornamental gates, gives access to a generous reception area, off which you'll find the living room with its marble fireplace, the kitchen with a traditional fireplace for grilling meat, and the courtyard. There is also a WC on this floor.

Up the stone staircase with its wrought iron balusters are 3 good-sized bedrooms and a large bathroom. On the second floor, there are two more large double bedrooms, an office, the roof terrace and a shower room and WC. The house has gas central heating.

Tourouzelle lies in the heart of the Languedoc, the largest wine growing region in the world. The villagers are a very friendly lot and have opened their hearts to newcomers. There is a very active social life, which gives one the opportunity to integrate quickly, and a great little village shop/café/restaurant.

The village nestles on a hill between the Montagne Noire and the Pyrenees. It is also 4 minutes from the Canal du Midi and 10 minutes from the Lac de Jouarres. The Mediterranean coast is 25 minutes away. This is a perfect location to avail oneself of the diversity of the region: barging on the canal, sailing, white-water rafting, water skiing, wind surfing, hiking, caving, and snow skiing/boarding. One is also able to make easy day trips to Spain, which is only 90 minutes away.

The area is well-serviced by Carcassonne Airport (35 minutes) with daily flights from England and Ireland or by Toulouse International Airport (90 minutes). Fast-train service from Paris also arrives at Narbonne (25 minutes) twice daily.

All amenities and many restaurants are found at Homps and Olonzac, 5 minutes' drive away.
