This superb property is located 10mn drive from a village with amenities in the greater Castres area. The houses have been restored over the years. The main dwelling, a Chateau style with its towers, offers a main residence with 3 bedrooms and an independent very large and comfortable Gîte with 1 separate bedroom which could be a ground floor granny flat. Both have a very high standing with top quality materials, perfect finishing and of course all modern comforts. Rooms are large and bright. The former sheepfold contains a 3 bedroom Gîte and there are 2 further small studio apartments. A private lane leads to the buildings which are almost situated on the highest part of the property with a really incredible view. Passing through lovely walk ways under huge trees will show you the beauty of this nature. The location is just wonderful, in total peacefulness, with an unspoiled panoramic view over the woodland down to the large valley and across to mountains.
