Overview

About the property

Medieval chateau in the hamlet of Montredon, on the banks of the Aude River. About 4 km from Carcassonne. Authentic medieval chateau with stone spiral staircase, grand hall and tower. Outstanding views of the Cite of Carcassonne (UNESCO World Heritage site) and to the Pyrenees beyond from the grand hall and the bedrooms.

Outside there are extensive grounds of about 2.5 acres. Close to the house there are lawns and terraces around the heated pool. Further from the house the park is mostly steep woodland with meandering paths around it.

The main entrance leads into an entrance hall and the stone staircase to the first floor. This leads into the huge Grand Hall with 4m ceilings, magnificent fireplace and full height windows. Off the Grand Hall is the eat in kitchen and a large library. From the kitchen there is a door to a raised terrace and steps down to the pool area. A wooden spiral staircase leads to the bedrooms on the second floor. The bedrooms are situated off a large landing. The principal bedroom is a super king with en-suite shower room. There is a second family shower room and utility room with washer and drier off this shower room. To the front of the house is another double bedroom and a twin with two singles and a childrens cot. Up a small spiral staircase from the landing is a mezzanine level with a twin bedroom partially open to the landing. Another spiral staircase leads to a single bedroom in the tower.

The house has many staircases some of which are narrow, spiral or uneven and would not be suitable for toddlers or other people unsteady on their feet.

The property in only 15 minutes from Carcassonne airport and just over an hour from Toulouse, Perpignan and Beziers airports. It is a little further from Montpellier Airport.

There is a riverside footpath all the way into Carcassonne from the house (about 4km away) so this is a great spot for exploring the Cite and the surrounding Cathar Castles, villages and mountains.

The house is located in the heart of the hamlet with neighbors all around so we ask that residents are quiet after 10pm, particularly around the pool area.

About The Owner

We live in Kent. We bought this property as our family holiday home.

The Owner purchased this chateau / country house in 2012

Why The Owner chose Carcassonne

We fell in love with this property when we walked into the main living room - a medieval hall with a grand fireplace and 5m ceilings. It needed quite a lot of refurbishment which we have done gradually over the last 5 years. We are now looking to rent it for a few weeks each summer to cover our ownership costs.

It is a great location close to Carcassonne and for multiple airports - only 15 minutes from Carcassonne airport so easy to hop over on short trips.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

This would make a great vacation property for a large family or two families sharing.
