This imposing property was built in the 16/17th Century on foundations of a former Château and is very pleasantly located on a riverbank in an elevated position, in a village with all amenities, in the greater Béziers area, Languedoc Roussillon, South of France. The history as a Royal Manufactory has left its traces as high ceilings and large rooms. Used today as a family residence with a Gîtes business, it is in need of investment. The large size, combined with its charm and history, offers a big potential for various touristic projects! Exclusive contract.

There are often ancient floor tiles.
Regarding the work which will need to be done, it depends on what the future use of this property will be. If a family wants to run it as a Gîtes business, then the main residence needs total renovation and just some updating in the Gîtes. The size of the building would allow it to become as well a Hotel, then it would need a total renovation job.
