Property Details:

Set back from the country road on which it is located, this property is in a quiet location in the heart of Cathar country nestled at the bottom of the Pyrenees. Being midway between Carcassonne and the medieval castle town of Foix (approx. 45km in either direction) and just 10km from the medieval bastide town of Mirepoix, it is ideally placed for exploring this historic region of Occitanie. Both the Regional Natural Park of Pyrenees Catalanes and Pyrenees Ariegeoises are very close by, plus you can visit the Labouiche underground river, or the thrill seekers, can go white water rafting in the Aude Gorges.

For day to day shopping and services, Mirepoix is about 15mins away and the bigger town of Limoux is just under 30mins. For transport links, the airport at Toulouse offers a year-round service and is reached in 1hr 15mins and the motorway is easily accessed providing routes to Bezier, Montpellier, Perpignan and down to Spain. Carcassonne served by Ryanair is only 40 mins as is the World heritage site and historic medieval city with an array of shops, restaurants and year round events. You will also find in Carcassonne, the peaceful Canal Du Midi perfect for boaties, walkers and for idyllic days out.

The property benefits from top of the range, maintenance free, bi-colour, aluminium double-glazed windows and doors with aluminium electric shutters throughout. Heating and hot water is by way of a condensing gas boiler with gas tank buried in the garden. The property is on mains drainage, so no problems with fosse septic tanks etc. It is also linked to mains water but with access to well water for use in the garden.
