This chateau from the 19th century is located in the countryside of Carcassonne, Languedoc Roussillon, South of France. It has been restored 3 years ago while preserving most genuine and ancient features; heating electricity and plumbing are new. The rooms are bright and spacious. The neighbouring farm used to be part of the property; its grounds surround the chateau. The chateau enjoys a splendid view, in total peacefulness, and is only a few minutes away from a small river where small cavities have been formed in the rocks and allow swimming and sun bathing in summer time.
