This remarkable property is located in the beautiful Occitanie region, in Graulhet between Albi and Castres, close to the famous Gaillac vineyards. Located in the heart of the Pays de Cocagne, famous for its gentle way of life and its land of plenty.
This property, enthroned in the heart of a peaceful, unspoilt environment, was built on the remains of an ancient monastery. Its well-hidden, hacienda-like architecture is absolutely atypical, and unique in our region.
Its U-shaped structure is organized around a totally enclosed patio, with a beautiful fountain at its center.
The 340m2 building, with its revolving walkway, leads to the 150m2 outbuildings ready for conversion, while the 2.8 hectares of beautifully landscaped grounds provide a beautiful backdrop to this extraordinary property. Finally, an incredible 14x7 swimming pool enhances the property. It's going to be difficult to describe so much splendor, but let's start the tour.

First of all, we pass through the imposing wrought-iron gate, which leads to the outside of the house. Then, another perimeter gate opens onto the central courtyard, revealing the building's distinctive architecture.
Here we are on the threshold of the main entrance, the first floor comprises a large 80m2 living room with open fireplace and pagoda-style bar, two bedrooms, bathroom and toilet, and an office. Bonus: a relaxation area with spa and sauna gives this level an incredible sense of well-being. A massive staircase leads upstairs to a monumental 70m2 living room with cathedral ceiling, stone fireplace and double hearth. The quality of the construction, the materials used and the decoration make this property a real gem. Then there's the magnificent fully-equipped kitchen with its fireplace.
The night area includes 3 bedrooms, one of which is a master suite, and a bathroom with toilet. A covered walkway leads from the living room and large suite to a covered terrace, also 80m long! We'll let you imagine the potential that's everywhere here! This terrace is extended by a barbecue area and bar...and from this space you can access the opposite wing, which houses the 150m2 outbuilding on 2 levels. The first floor of the outbuilding includes workshops, storage areas, an air-conditioned wine cellar and a large veranda, which currently houses plants in winter storage, but which could have a completely different function.
The entire property is fitted with high-quality wood-look PVC joinery and double glazing, and is heated by an oil-fired boiler with underfloor heating on all levels. Air conditioning is also provided.
Outside, a fully enclosed landscaped garden surrounds the house, with fruit trees, flower beds and a hundred-year-old oak tree. In the middle, the 14x7 saltwater swimming pool, with its diving pit, pool house and landscaped decking, adjoins the lovely terraces, what a heavenly place!
An artificial lake on the opposite side of the plot supplies water for the integrated sprinkler system, and there's also a well.
You'll also benefit from garages to store your garden equipment, henhouse, kennel, dovecote and carports.
Location: Graulhet, a thousand-year-old town, was built on a naturally defensive promontory surrounded by water: the Dadou river. In the heart of the Pays de Cocagne region, the city prospered thanks to its small pastel transit port, with Occitan pastel considered the best in Europe during the Renaissance. In the 19th century, Graulhet became the world's leather capital, despite having mastered this craft since Gallo-Roman times.
A town of tanneries and leather factories, Graulhet showcases its expertise at the Maison des métiers du cuir.
If in the Tarn, the Pays de Cocagne is definitely associated with the west of the department and the 6 communities of communes united under its banner, we mustn't forget the generic term which, in the imagination of European civilization, meant land of plenty, a quasi paradise land where the heavens had been particularly generous.
If there's one region in the Tarn where the earth is generous, it's here, in these plains of rich, fertile clay, where cereals flourish and ripen under the blazing sun. Where vines and orchards, saffron and woad, flourish. Where people find peace, well-being and prosperity.
This property is a rare and remarkable opportunity: it offers so much potential, your dreams will come true here, you'll be able to imagine and develop multiple projects, hospitality, well-being and much more...
Its geographical location in the heart of the Gaillacois region, not far from Toulouse, shouldn't make you hesitate for long, if you're looking for a life far from the hustle and bustle of the city, a new start close to nature...
The department of Tarn welcomes you to discover and embrace its culture of good living, rooted in its Occitan roots. You'll also enjoy this department with its 1000 faces, its emblematic museums, such as the Toulouse Lautrec Museum in Albi, Goya in Castres and Dom Robert in Sorèze, and its nearby lakes and leisure centers.
Graulhet is 30 km from Albi and less than an hour from Toulouse and its international airport, while Carcassonne is almost the same distance. Castres has its own commercial and business airport (internal), with 3 daily flights to Paris.
