Property Description

This delightful interior designed former 18th century Maison de Maitre ran as Boutique Chambre d’Hotes is a real treasure ....  Driving through the apple and apricot orchards you approach this charming village nestled in the low foothills of the Pyrenees. It is conveniently situated 1 hour from Carcassonne airport and 1,5 hours to Toulouse airport.

This successful Boutique Chambre d’Hotes would work brilliantly as an elegant family home as the flexibility of the accommodation is incredible, there are  9 bedrooms in total, 5 in the maison de maitre, 2 in each of the side houses. Our favorite has a delightful end of bed banquette in the classic french colour combination of deep yellow and shades of grey – whilst Jennifer fell in love with a bedroom that has a 4 poster brought back from India all different and all gorgeous. Old stone walls basking in the sun, the smell of flowers, the soft green shutters welcoming you and then you step inside.  A wonderful flagstoned corridor, old oak stairs with delicate balustrading to your right the dining room, bright, overlooking the square, very chic ….

Behind it via a short corridor walled to one side with the original moulded wood and floor to ceiling storage cupboards is a professional kitchen with a long wooden table, tons of working space overlooking part of the gardens. To the side of the elegant stairs is another enchanting room – currently used as an “honour” bar and relaxing / reading area, again, overlooking the gardens. Every single room is different, yet linked by a gentle colour palette that encourages you to relax and unwind.  The furnishings and furniture that have been sourced and commissioned worldwide by the current owners are wonderful; wonderful fabrics, some classical French designs, others hinting at the current owners’ love of the far east.  Some of these furnishings could be purchased by separate negotiation.

Outside, the gardens are a joy, designed as a series of “garden rooms ”  – there are public spaces, private spaces, dedicated spaces, an elegant terrace and all gardened with such charm and a very “english country garden ” feel allied to the French tradition of allées and gravelled walkways.  The current owners were discussing putting in a swimming pool, and there is more than enough room to do so, whilst retaining the privacy and elegance of each of the current outdoor spaces.     Main House The ground floor
