A superb stone-built maison de maître set on a promontory with 360 degree views and a long rising drive guaranteeing absolute privacy. Beautifully restored, combining original period features with modern function and set in delightfully mature gardens. Separate and stylish accommodation in a converted barn. In an area where the Templars were known to be active, the property is believed to have medieval origins. A 1km drive, of which 600 metres are privately owned, rises to a knoll with an enticing roll away to the south. There are panoramic views over undulating countryside, with the Pyrenees often providing a dramatic backdrop. The main house and independent guest wing have been comprehensively restored with many attractive finishes; exposed stone, hand-built oak doors, timber and tiled floors.


The Guest House has an immense living area more than 70 sqm and a lofty 5-metre high ceiling and 'monumental' fireplace with powerful wood burning stove. There is a mezzanine sleeping area with
bathroom and separate bedroom suite in the former wine press room. As a letting unit and source of income, the Guest House has featured on a Sunday Times list of Europe’s coolest rental villas.
A double barn with two areas of 140 m² has been used for social events or would suit a collector. With an absence of light pollution, the location is ideal for star gazing at night.
