Detailed description

Impressive architecture for this authentic 16th century Château in excellent condition situated a few yards from an international UNESCO site. The Canal du Midi is a lively waterway full of charm and tranquility connecting the Atlantic Ocean with the Mediterranean Sea and the Château is situated on its banks between Castelnaudary and Carcassonne.
Carcassonne is the second most visited city in France after Paris with over three million visitors this year, a great advantage if you are looking to eventually run this property as a high end B&B or boutique hotel. It will need updating but the potential is ther. Upon entering, the manicured lawns and landscape garden define the ambiance of the Château, one of calm and tranquility. The entrance hall is 40m² with molded ceilings. To the right, there is a large lounge with ornate ceilings and marble fireplace. The kitchen is sunfilled and spaccious and features an open hearth. The dining room is paneled and the ceiling ornate with another fireplace. In fact almost every room has one and the floors are either parquet or "tomettes" The majestic staircase, the Italian frescoes, the ten bedrooms all with beautiful views of the grounds complete the interior of this rare gem. The garden is private and it is here that you find the 5x10 swilling pool. At proximity, there are two guest cottages ideal to be used as holiday rentals. With only a short distance into the village with its shops there are many picturesque walks or boating activities to be had along the canal as well as a wealth of high quality restaurants only a short drive away. Toulouse and Carcassonne are 30 minutes away, both with airports. Toulouse is International and Carcassonne has Ryan Air low cost flights from the UK, Ireland, Scotland, Belgium and Germany. A visit is a must.
