Restored medieval castle in 2 ha with pool and gites, near Albi, Tarn

Midi-Pyrénées, Tarn (81)

€1,325,000 ID: 161911

This prestigious property is located in this beautiful region of Occitania, in the heart of the Pays de Cocagne, famous for its gentle way of life and its land of plenty.

This feudal castle dating from the 13th century, modified in the 18th century, has been entirely renovated.

The current owners, who are passionate about history and architecture, have given this place steeped in history all its letters of nobility, by restoring it entirely and by preserving and sublimating its style and characteristics. This restoration represented a colossal task, and today this property is a real jewel with a rare and sought-after architecture.
The present castle has kept a feudal character which reminds us of the past importance of this ancient fortress of the Viscounty of Lautrec, a part of which is registered in the supplementary inventory of Historic Monuments.
This registration can allow you to benefit from certain tax advantages.

A more detailed description of this unique property.
Once you have climbed the outside stairs and passed through the fortified gate, you will discover an imposing central park with trees, a well and a 5x10 heated swimming pool.
All around are the living quarters.
First of all, the main house and its 550m2, to be reached  via a massive stone staircase
Then, the day part with a dining room, living room, kitchen and back kitchen, office and reception hall.
The night area with 5 bedrooms all with en suite bathrooms. Absolutely everything here has been thought out and renovated with luxury and quality in mind while preserving the style.
Incredible furniture (which could be purchased when the time comes). The heating is provided by a recent oil-fired boiler, and all the roofs of the living areas, including the gîtes, have recently been redone in turn.

The ground floor shelters a sumptuous room of seminar of 80m2 with its kitchen and very close a true medieval kitchen and its stay for 75m2. These rooms are also equipped with toilets and are perfectly adapted to the reception.

We cross the park to the first gîte of 40m2, perfectly equipped and  with reversible air conditioning. Mezzanine, kitchen, living room, shower room, everything is provided here. This gite is in great demand for rental due to its spectacular location.
Another gite of 140m2 in the entrance of the castle enclosure benefits from a living room of 100m2 with a mezzanine as well as 3 beautiful bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It is a real flat with a top of the range finish and reversible air-conditioning.

This exceptional property is now waiting for a new owner who will be able to take up the torch with just as much passion and love for this fabulous historical heritage.
Everything is absolutely ready to live in!

Location: Vénès, small commune in the west of the Tarn department; in the Occitanie region and in the heart of the Pays de Cocagne.
