Villa in France


Villa in France

A beautiful stone built 17th century property, originally a nunnery, has four bedrooms, each with ensuite. Nestled in the heart of the Languedoc in an acre of land, it has magnificent views across vineyards and out to the Pyrenees.

The current owner purchased this property when there was little remaining of it and it was standing with only 3 walls and a tree growing up from the inside. From this sad state of disrepair, the building was renovated and a garden created out of a wilderness. Today, this beautiful property has all the modern amenities required for present day living, whilst retaining the integrity of the original building.

Outside the villa is an abundance of terraces and tables for al-fresco dining. There’s something for everyone with a variety of quiet sitting areas and a magnificent swimming pool for cooling off. The barbeque area is also a key part of the outside space, all of which has wonderful views over the surrounding countryside and out to the Pyrenees.

So if you’re thinking of escaping the rigours of everyday life, go explore this little piece of bucolic paradise! Close by you can explore the nearby mediaeval villages – strolling through the narrow cobbled streets, visiting some wonderful little shops and cafes and if you’re lucky there may be an impressive street market. Not too far away is the beautiful village of Roquebrun, built in to a cliff, alongside a river. The village is wonderful to walk around, and it has a 10th century look-out tower, beautiful views, and a Mediterranean garden to amble about.
