Beautiful property with gîtes, Pyrénées-Orientales, Occitanie
This beautiful stone property has been lovingly renovated including the roof, double glazing, electrics and plumbing and the result is simply stunning. It consists of a spacious 3-bedroom house of 145m² plus 3 large independent well-equipped apartments. The main house enjoys a large living room with open plan kitchen, leading to a lovely 45m² terrace ideal for soaking up the sunshine with a glass of wine and enjoying the view of Mount Canigou and the surrounding hillsides. Each of the apartments also has its own dedicated terrace and the ease of maintenance of all of the terraces and courtyard is a real plus. The apartments are ideal for renting out as gîtes, and indeed that's exactly what the current owners have successfully done during the summer season. In impeccable condition, the original character which we all love has been conserved with plenty of stonework and wooden beams on show, however it has all the modern aspects which make life extremely comfortable. The solar panels, for instance, not only heat the water in the property and cover the electricity costs, surplus electricity is sold back to EDF for around 1,500 per annum! In winter, the characterful wood burner is as welcome as the under-floor heating! Situated in a lovely village, the property is just 5 minutes from the stunning walled village of Villefranche-de-Conflent and 15 minutes from Prades which has all the amenities that you could need. Perfectly situated at around 45 minutes from both the Mediterranean beaches and the ski slopes, it couldn't be better placed for you or your guests. There are some beautiful rockpools nearby for cooling off in the summer sun. Plenty of further information is available, so contact us for a chat and to arrange your visit!
