Belcaire Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description
Beautiful chateau to rent with private pool near the Pyrennees
Dating back to the 16th century, the charming Chateau de Bellecare is situated in the foothills of the idyllic Pyrenees on the edge of a medieval village and a stone’s throw from local amenities. You can pick up fresh croissants and baguettes from the nearby boulangerie, excellent cuts of meat from the boucherie for a barbeque on the south-facing patio, which you can accompany with a local Limoux wine sourced from the alimentation, just a few steps across the road. The Chateau offers breathtaking views of the high mountains, excellent for walking in. Nearby are ancient Cathar castles, picturesque market towns such as Mirepoix and fascinating towns such as Limoux and Rennes-le-Château. The medieval citadel town of Carcasonne is about an hour away with Perpignan and the coast within close proximity.
Interior and Grounds:
The magnificent medieval entrance leads into the spacious hall with access to the living and dining rooms on either side. The spacious living room runs the full length of the building and is dominated by the traditional French fireplace, installed with a wood-burning stove, which can be used all year round. The room is equipped with a sound system with CD and ipod connection. At the opposite end is a self-contained seating area with satellite TV, DVD player and a considerable selection of DVD titles. There is access to the south-facing patio through the French windows where you can spend the evening, overlooking the peaceful village and watching the sun set. The dining room can seat up to 16 people and leads in to the kitchen with adjoining utility room. Aside the dining room, in the circular turret is a small office. Here there is broadband internet and computer access for guests. The kitchen is equipped with a large gas stove, sink, storage space and dishwasher.
The Chateau has 8 large, attractively decorated and similarly-sized bedrooms leading off a central corridor over two floors. The bedrooms enjoy exquisite views of the surrounding countryside, the courtyard of the property and the pretty village beyond. The rooms offer guests peaceful and private spaces to rest in and enjoy the magic of this majestic building. After a tiring day, guests can enjoy the luxurious and generously sized rooms with huge beds and ample storage offering perfect rest and relaxation away from home. On each floor one twin room, each with two single beds caters for individuals or children who want their own space in beautifully furnished surroundings. Six of the bedrooms have superb en suite bathroom facilities set within the circular towers of the Chateau. The remaining two rooms are ideal for children or close family members with connecting doors through to adjacent bedrooms.
The sizeable garden has two patio areas for outdoor entertainment and perfect for al fresco dining. The pool is 10m long and 5m wide with a retractable roof and there is a separate self-contained area which is perfect for a game of badminton, boules or table tennis. The chateau can comfortably accommodate parking for several vehicles.
