This property consists of a renovated farmhouse where the owners live and three working gites. There are a number of solid out-buildings, a beautiful 12 metre pool, a vegetable patch with its own well, and an orchard. This is all set in 4 hectares of grounds with meadows suitable for horses. There are no near neighbours but the mediaeval town of Mirepoix is just 4 minutes down the road (or 20 minutes by foot).
Mirepoix is a fashionable mediaeval town where property prices tend to remain stable or - unusual in France - even go up! Living in the town itself is romantic but demanding as there is noise, traffic and hordes of tourists. Much better to live a few kms out of town to enjoy the fresh air, quiet and views of the Pyrenees.
The farmhouse has two ensuite bedrooms, 2 lounges, a library, kitchen and dining room.
Two of the gites are simple 2-bedroomed affairs with lounge and kitchen/dining area and family bathroom. The third gite is more spacious with three bedrooms and two shower rooms.
A big attraction of this property are the two out-buildings which are solid and spacious. They have been earmarked for the creation of more gites or as a venue for associated activities - yoga, meeting rooms, bike workshop and so on.
This property will appeal to buyers looking for a steady little gite business associated with a lifestyle difficult to find elsewhere: southern French sun, swimming pool, views and a host of local, quality products. It works perfectly well without adding any more gites but each buyer will see it differently. Carcassonne airport is 35 minutes away, Toulouse 50 minutes and Andorra about 90 minutes. Nearest ski resort at Mont d'Olmes 40 minutes to the south.
