This is an untidy and somewhat shabby house which none the less benefits from a sunny courtyard garden and is in good structural condition. Comprising of private courtyard garden (21m2), lounge (16m2), tatty kitchen (6m2), 3 bedrooms (11m2, 10m2, 8m2), shower room and separate wc, Store room/office (10m2). This is an excellent holiday home over 3 floors needing decoration and a new kitchen - hence the low asking price
It is only a short stroll to the town centre, the Sunday market and the market place and all the shops, restaurants and services that Esperaza is famous for.
The town of Esperaza is famous for its Sunday market which is held in the two adjoining market places. There is an excellent range of shops (including a really outstanding Boulangerie), health services, bars, restaurants and a good school. There is a direct railway link to Carcassonne (and its airport) and in the other direction the market town of Quillan. The coast is about an 1 hour 30 minutes away (don't listen to other, less honest estate agents who try to tell you it is 'less than an hour'!). More importantly, however, this is an area of outstanding natural beauty and Esperaza is set on the wonderful and very pretty river Aude (from which this department of France gains its name). The town is high above the river so there is no danger of flooding before you ask!
This area is a mecca for tourists and both walking and cycling are popular here (the famous Tour de France passes here most years). You have several white water rafting companies who can give you a fantastic experience and, of course, the world famous Rennes les Chateau and the world heritage site of La Cite at Carcassonne are close by (Rennes is less than ten minutes away). Nearby you have all of the famous Cathar chateaux (if you have not visited any of them try to do so as they are amazing places).
Location wise for national and international transport links this area is well served. Carcassonne airport with its cheap (and yes, slightly nasty!) Ryanair service to several European airports is about 40 minutes away. Toulouse International is about an hour and 20 minutes. There is also a TGV railway station at Carcassonne.
