Tucked at the end of a quiet lane the complex opens into a horseshoe shape of buildings with mature trees, shrubs, surrounded by forest and is located just minutes from a thriving village in the greater Castelnaudary area, Languedoc Roussillon, South of France. Plenty of opportunity for horse riding or hiking directly from the grounds. In good condition and easy to maintain but with features such as antique wood-burners and French doors and lovely views of the garden.
