Welcoming and spacious guest house offering 350m2 of habitable space comprising owners' living quarters, 5 en-suite bedrooms and independent gite on a private plot of over 2220m2, with a beautiful landscaped garden, heated swimming pool, sauna and spa.

The main house has 2 entrances, one on the ground floor and one directly onto the upper floor.

Ground Floor: a gravel pathway from the parking area leads to the main entrance door, which opens onto a living room/hall. A central hallway leads a private bedroom with en-suite shower room, a guest room and bathroom, a laundry room and a large kitchen, which in turn opens onto a verandah and large shaded dining terrace overlooking the garden. There is also a workshop and guest shower and toilets accessible from the pool area.

On this floor, there is a comfortable sitting room which has French doors onto a balcony overlooking the garden, 4 en-suite bedrooms, a kitchen and a verandah opening onto a further balcony overlooking the pool area.

A former garage on the grounds has been converted into a one bedroom gite of around 32m2, with its own patio overlooking the gardens.

The well-tended grounds are divided into distinct areas which blend together harmoniously. A vehicle entrance leads to a gravelled parking area masked by mature olive trees. The main garden is formal in style with mature planting, hedges, pathways, lawn and a fountain. The swimming pool terrace comprises a sauna and a spa and is accessed via a security gate. There is also a delightful shaded dining terrace with built in barbeque, perfect for al fresco dining. At the bottom of the garden, a small stream runs along the edge of the property.

In all this is a unique, high quality property, well maintained throughout. The main house has plenty of interesting features, including several marble fireplaces in the red marble the village is renowned for. The gardens are a real delight - a true haven of peace and tranquility!

The department of Aude is in the Languedoc-Roussillon region located in the south of France. It is surrounded by the Pyrenees-Orientales, Ariege, Tarn and Herault departments.

French property buyers look in this region due to its numerous and varied landscapes as well as the rich cultural heritage, Aude has become an ever popular destination recently due to the gastronomy of the region, as well as its many festivals and dramatic scenery.

Carcassonne is the cultural heart of the Aude department, and all through the region you will find lovely properties either to live in or to use as holiday homes. Aude is an agricultural area dominated by wine-growing in the east and the climate is that of the Mediterranean so summers are hot and dry and winters are mild and humid.

It is the perfect location if you are looking for a quiet life and to be in harmony with your surroundings.
