Beautiful Domaine and Wedding Venue for sale in southwest FranceThis Beautiful Domaine and Wedding Venue with a large Estate of 89 hectares of land is offered for sale in the Aude area in Occitanie (southwest France)
Ideally located a stone’s throw from the medieval city of Carcassonne and Rick Steins’ beloved the Canal du Midi, the estate is the perfect place to enjoy the charm of southwest France without being isolated from the modern world.
Nestled in the breath-taking landscape in the Occitanie region, discover this unique property with a fabulous Mediterranean garden with swimming pool, an outside whirlpool, a south facing terrace for al fresco apéritifs, tree shaded park and comes complete with its own tennis court (needs a little refreshing).
Dominating at 275m, the property offers breathtaking panoramic views; from the north at the city Carcassonne, to the east the mountains of the Corbières and at the south the often-snowy peaks of the Pyrénées mountain range.
Since 2010, the property has been owned and managed by a Dutch couple who have made many tasteful changes over the years including the stone paved link between the original and newly constructed part of the house. Also the reconstruction of the impressive fireplace in the drawing room, take a look!
The domaine is set in a preserved environment where calm, space and clean air reign. The whole estate sits in 89HA of it’s own grounds, with ±1200 sqm of buildings and a further 3500 sqm eligible for potential new construction.
Historically, the original estate dates to at least the time of Louis XV and has always been of important presence for many years. The property was mostly used as wine estate and a farm, until it was converted into a luxury residence in the 1980s.
The previous owners had already changed most of the barns into living spaces, bringing with them beautiful authentic elements from Normandy, for example one of the large fireplaces originally found in a castle.
The Domaine is strategically well located 10 minutes away from the motorway, 15 minutes from Carcassonne airport, 20 minutes from the train station
and the world famous Medieval city of Carcassonne, 45 minutes to the Mediterranean Sea at Narbonne.
The value of the property lies in the land and its unique location with stunning views over Carcassonne, la Montagne Noire, les Corbières, Malepère and the Pyrenees). As well as the possibility for further development if desired, starting from a well organised existing business and setup.
Today, the estate offers the perfect setup for a main residence or secondary family home, and of course can also be used for professional/hospitality/income activities ( holiday rental, hotel/restaurant activities or as wedding venue) (as it currently is at the moment).
