Located in the charming village of Azille amongst the vineyards of the Minervois wine valley, you’ll find this stunning 19th-century Flemish-style property that was once used as the Presbytery. It’s loaded with 6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, many original features, and a gorgeous view of the 14th-century church which has been classified as a historical monument.

Upon entering this stately property, you’ll be enthralled by the spaciousness of the foyer decorated with elegant tiles.
There is an enormous open-air kitchen which is perfect for the inspired home chef and great for entertaining guests. Look below your feet and you’ll see the striking wooden floors, which give it a rustic feel mixed with elegance.
The prestigious office facing the church is decorated with a marble fireplace and my absolute favorite tiles with the "Fleur-de-Lys" (Lily flower) which is the emblem of the French crown and is still used today as a symbol of France.
There is a large living room next to the office which also features gorgeous original flooring and a wood burner to keep warm and cozy on cool winter nights.
The mammoth-sized bedrooms all feature original terracotta tile floors, marble fireplaces, and the stylish workmanship of handcrafted wardrobes. One of the glorious bedrooms features a balcony with a picturesque view of the church.
Throughout the house, all of the windows have been recently replaced by a 6mm thick glass, which is excellent for noise reduction and heating but maintains the original features of the house.
The main bathroom features not only a shower but a romantic, Victorian-style ball-and-claw bathtub, perfect for relaxing after a long day.
There is a balcony that runs the length of the house and is accessed by 2 of the bedrooms and a bathroom, panning out to a terrace with room for table and chairs accessed by one of the bedrooms.
The peaceful garden is easy to care for and features a heated pool where you can soak in the sun or relax with a glass of rosé without being overlooked by neighbors.
This house has been painstakingly renovated with quality materials and great attention to detail, including hand-made wardrobes and state-of-the-art lighting.
Please note the top floor needs renovation, aside from one bathroom recently completed. However, all plumbing and electrics are in place throughout at this level meaning the work is largely cosmetic. Plans are available for the new owner.
If you are looking for a rare and magnificent character property in the south of France, then look no further!
