About Claudia Löhner
We had been looking for a place in the south of France for several years and fell in love the first time we saw Le Trabet with its stone facade and blue window shutters. As to ourselves, we have traveled far and wide. We were both born in Germany where we attended the university. We have lived in Wales and the US and are now happy to be at this beautiful property in the unspoiled countryside of the Aude province.
Claudia Löhner purchased this House in 2013
Why Claudia Löhner chose Arrondissement of Carcassonne
Le Trabet used to be a winery, dating back to the 18th century. The Domaine has been painstakingly restored to accommodate three luxurious gites. The estate is set in a small park with establishes trees, shrubs and hedges. The infinity swimming pool is fabulous. This is a superb property located right in the unspoiled countryside of the Aude province. As a photographer, I take advantage capturing the many beautiful details - or I just sit down and enjoy the view… Please see for yourself and take a look at some of the photos on our website Le Trabet.
What makes this House unique
There are over 250 years of history here and with it comes a sense of enduring quality: this is a house of stone which was built to last. Blue window shutters and wrought-iron gates pick up the color of the sky. An old barn with its wine cellar points to the former role as wine-making estate. And then there is the large swimming pool, the park with its huge trees, a magnificent view of the Montagnes Noires and the snowy peaks of the Pyrenees in the distance. What more could one want - There are numerous fantastic restaurants to discover, quaint ones and grandiose ones too: five Michelin-star restaurants are in the vicinity. Not to forget the ancient ruins and Cathar castles ! And of course there is the clear southern light and the unforgettable sound of the wind that plays with the palm trees -
