Built in the 16th Century and expanded in the 18th Century, this beautiful chateau is now a comfortable family home.
Situated less than five minutes drive from local amenities and less than an hour to Toulouse or Carcassonne, the idyllic riverside location would make a perfect choice for a chambre d'hôtes or boutique hotel business or simply a home to enjoy as a large family.

A winding drive through the trees leads to the front of the chateau with its large south facing courtyard, perfect for entertaining and enjoying the sun at any time of year. The central part of the property contains multiple reception rooms, and a beautiful expansive kitchen which adjoins a dining room, perfect for hosting large gatherings.

The property boasts ten bedrooms, three of which are currently used for B&B accommodation and each have their own bathroom.
Another light filled reception room with high ceilings looks out over the central courtyard and leads onto further bedrooms and bathrooms currently used by the owners.
A wide wooden staircase rises one more floor to further generous bedrooms and a shared bathroom.
In the East wing there are two further bedrooms with shower rooms and the ground floor provides another large room, running the length of the property and currently being used as a utility room and office.

Adjacent to the chateau is the former guardhouse and stable.
This provides two bedrooms and a bathroom as well as a large living area and small kitchen on the ground floor. Above is a huge first floor that offers plenty of possibilities for development.

In the grounds the chateau is complimented by a walled tiled swimming pool, an enormous traditional agricultural hanger that can serve as parking or a sheltered area for events, a pigeonnier with a bread oven that has been renovated, a greenhouse and almost 4 hectares of woodland surrounding the chateau.
Next to the property you can relax beside or even take a dip in the river from the private beach.

The grounds
The chateau is located beside a river amongst mature woodland, there are multiple access points to the river including a stony beach area perfect for taking a refreshing dip.

A tiled swimming pool sits a short distance in front of the house, walled for security and with a plenty of storage in the pool house.

A pigeonnier with functional bread oven stands at the foot of the drive and has been renovated, including electrical connections, to make a perfect little office or quirky bedroom.
