For buying and selling property in Tuchan

Tuchan - a village dominated by a mountain... and wine!

The little village of Tuchan is found in the far south of France, close to the eastern Spanish border and nestled in beautiful and dramatic countryside at the foot of Mount Tauch. After wandering the centuries old streets of this pretty and historic village, the next thing that you will become aware of is wine; caves for degustions (tastings), vineyards, wine tankers and bottles and bottles of this precious liquid on sale in the shops and local restaurants.

Small but with great facilities

It is only a relatively small village, but Tuchan is extremely well equipped with a couple of supermarkets, a petrol station and local shops such as an excellent boulangerie producing a range of traditional and delicious breads, cakes and pastries. There is also a tabac, a pharmacy, health care, hairdressers, bank and post office.

Markets, festivals and dining in Tuchan

There are traditional outdoor markets, festivals and a weekly visit from the pizza van, which sells its delicious wood-fired oven baked pizzas in the centre of the village. What more could you want? Somewhere to wine and dine perhaps? Tuchan has two restaurants, both of which serve excellent food and the wonderfully rich and spicy Fitou wine. There is also a bar which serves food in the summer, and a new Bodega (Tapas Bar) in the centre of the village, close to the Cave Cooperative.

Outdoor paradise

The area in which the village is located can be described as an outdoor paradise. Tuchan is perfect for everyone who loves the varying landscapes in which the southern Languedoc excels... the mountains, the "garrigue" (aromatic wild lands of heather, lavender, mint and thyme) and the blue Mediterranean Sea just a step or two away.

Sporting activities

Outdoor activities are popular here as the weather is good for most of the year, and there are lots of lovely spots for river bathing, as well as swimming pools in and near the town. The surrounding area offers opportunities for horse-riding, cycling, walking and sports such as tennis and boules, or you can pop down to the pretty Roussillon coast and enjoy a spot of scuba diving or sea fishing.

Out and about

Exploring this part of the south of France is a must, as there is so much history and beauty to find. Discover the world of the tragic Cathar knights, and see the castles both complete and ruined from these turbulent times. Visit the mediaeval city of Carcassonne, the thriving hub of life that is Perpignan, or go south to Spain and enjoy the beaches and lifestyle of the Costa Brava and the glorious city of Barcelona, all easily accessible within a day trip.

How to get there

The village is easy to reach as it lies close to several airports. Perpignan is the nearest, at around 25 minutes away by car, with Carcassonne, Girona, Montpellier and Toulouse also within reach. Perpignan is served by Ryanair, bmibaby and flybe; Carcassonne by Ryanair; Montpellier by easyJet and Ryanair; Toulouse by British Airways, easyJet, bmi, Jet2 and flybe; and finally Girona by Ryanair. If you prefer travelling by train, then you can start with taking the Eurostar to Paris, followed by a TGV all the way to Perpignan. If driving, you will find signs for the village from the D39 after leaving the A9 motorway.

Property prices and availability in and around Tuchan

Prices in Tuchan are reasonable when compared to other parts of southern France that lie as close to the Med. Property in the village is considerably cheaper than, for example, a similar village further to the east, in Provence. Tuchan's old stone village houses are full of character and represent good value for money. They are also popular with holiday makers should you decide to rent the property out when not in use.
