For buying and selling property in Montreal

Location, location, location…

Montréal benefits from being situated in a near perfect location. The town is close to the beautiful Mediterranean coast, within easy reach of the fabulous Pyrénean Mountains for winter sports, and a close neighbour of the fairy tale city of Carcassonne, with its airport and superb modern amenities. There is no need however, to leave Montreal to enjoy yourself, for although it is not a large town it has much to offer. There is a café, bar and a restaurant, a baker's which sells the most delicious varieties of rustic bread and other local delicacies. It has no less than three outdoor swimming pools and a lake, tennis courts and boules courts! At certain times of year a travelling fair sets up in the town centre, and this adds to the uniquely French atmosphere of Montréal.

Rolling fields and vines, vines, vines

From its hilltop position Montréal looks out over the beautiful undulating countryside of south-west France. It is a landscape which changes colour, chameleon like, with the seasons so those who live in Montréal are never bored with the view! In the distance you can see the pine-covered Montagne Noir, and watch the hot summer sun ripening the grapes on the vines until you can almost taste the wine. If you want to try the real thing, there are numerous 'directe vente' domains close at hand, where you can taste the locally produced wines and buy a crate or two of what takes your fancy! There is something quite special about sipping a glass of wine in the very place where it has been produced and the vineyards around Montréal are home to some of the regions finest wines.

Out and about

The town itself has several sport and leisure facilities as mentioned earlier, and you don't have to travel far to find even more choices. Carcassonne has an excellent golf course, and also offers almost any sporting activity you can think of. There are lakes for water sports, leisure parks, the lovely Canal du Midi for a spot of long boating, the Mediterranean Sea and the Pyrénean Mountains to enjoy. Newcomers to the area should also make the trip to nearby Carcassonne to explore the beautiful walled city, which dates back to the times of the Cathar knights, and the castle which provided the inspiration for Walt Disney's Sleeping beauty.

How to get there

Access to Montréal from the UK is simplicity itself and economical too! Budget airline Ryanair has several flights into Carcassonne from the both England, Scotland and Ireland. The airports which currently serve Carcassonne include Liverpool, Leeds, London-Stansted, East Midlands, Glasgow, Dublin and Cork.

Property prices and availability in and around Montréal

Property in the south of France is generally more expensive than in the north and centre, but buying in Montréal has the advantage of being a little cheaper than the coast. You will get a lot more house for your money in Montréal than in Collioure, for example. Houses in the town come in all shapes and sizes, and living in Montréal offers the choice of clean modern living in a new villa on the outskirts, the charm of a traditional town house in the centre, or the rural dream of a lovely old farmhouse in the surrounding countryside.
