Perched on the rocky hillside looking across the Aude Plain with a superb view of the Corbieres and Pyrenees, this 18th century stone built residence rebuilt by a german architect represents the 21st Century rural idyll.
The property is ecologically practically self-sufficient. Solar powered energy provides all the electricity for water heating and lighting. Liquid gas supplementary heating installed. The open plan living area is warmed by the solid stone handcrafted wood burning stove and open fireplace positioned below the majestic stone staircase leading to the first floor. Rain water is stored in a 24000 litre tank and supplies the house and pool.
The salon, with its cathedral ceiling and excellent acoustics, gives an overall feeling of tranquility, space and light.
