Are you ready to step back in time and experience the charm of a historic château house in the heart of the Aude, near the famous Canal du Midi? This idyllic property, located on the outskirts of an old castle, offers not only a glimpse into the past but also modern comforts, including a private garden and a communal swimming pool.

A Templar Farmstead Turned Château Retreat

The castle housing this unique property was originally a Templar farmstead, with some of its oldest sections dating back to Roman times. Once home to knights, it has been transformed into a delightful haven for modern travelers, with approximately 35 holiday homes. This charming château house, rebuilt in 1996, boasts a prime location on the ground floor of the northwest side of the castle.

The Property's Features

Spanning approximately 60 square meters, the property offers a living room with a cozy pallet stove, a separate kitchen at the back, a convenient stairs cupboard, and a separate toilet.

On the first floor, two bedrooms and a bathroom with a shower and washbasin await. From there, a set of stairs leads to the second floor, where you'll find a small terrace, the perfect spot to enjoy the views of the beautiful surroundings.

The property's private garden, measuring approximately 60 square meters, provides ample space to relax and enjoy the outdoors. Additionally, private parking is available right next to the property.

While the property offers privacy, it also shares access to a communal swimming pool (with 8 other owners), providing a refreshing oasis for hot summer days. This pool, completed in 2019, offers a fantastic opportunity to socialize with other residents of the castle.

Explore the Enchanting Surroundings

The château house is nestled in a park-like garden with centuries-old trees and is surrounded by vineyards, offering picturesque views of the Pyrenees. The immediate surroundings are a dream for nature enthusiasts, with the enchanting Canal du Midi nearby, as well as vineyards, sunflower fields, and forests, providing endless opportunities for walking and cycling.

This is not just a property; it's an opportunity to immerse yourself in history, surrounded by the stunning landscapes of the Aude region. If you're in search of a unique and captivating retreat, this may just be the place you've been dreaming of. Explore the past and embrace the present in this picturesque corner of Southern France.
