A property such as this has never been seen on the market, between sea and mountain, in the middle of a splendid, surprising and unexpected landscape in the Pyrenees Orientales, Languedoc Roussillon, South of France. Located at mid altitude with a very sunny and mild micro climate while still receiving enough rainfall to have always prevented any fire. The 200 ha on the land registry actually come to more than 300 topographic hectares on the ground. Thanks to its mainly Southern, as well as Eastern and Western, exposure, this unique property is sheltered from dominant winds.
This homogeneous but varied estate is composed of:
- more than 25 ha of meadows or fields, to some extent enclosed and irrigable
- more than 25 ha of moors
- more than 250 ha of forest
- and of the fruit trees
Among these 250 ha of topographic forest there are:
- approximately 30 ha of Laricio pines, planted 25 years ago
- chestnuts, holm/durmast oaks, various pines, birches, maples, acacias, beeches, ashes…
The property offers a network of 20 km private trails all – ideal for riding because the trails are sanded and were created with seamless gentle slopes. Huge resources were poured into creating this network in the 1980s and today, these gigantic earthworks are invisible and have blended into the surrounding preserved nature.
The trails make it possible to access all parts of the estate: the wood to manage and exploit, the fields, the big sheep-fold on a plateau in the higher part of the estate and the various terraces and plateaus established all over the estate and offering spectacular views.
The size of the grounds allows private hunting of wild boars, roe-deer, izards, hares, wood pigeons, woodcocks etc. currently not fenced, but the property can be fenced.
The land has always been cultivated without fertilizer or any chemical additive in accordance with agro biology.
All stone built, they form a hamlet and offer a great potential for development by extension, conversion as well as new building depending on the needs for your projects; the buildings can be used for agriculture, breeding or green tourism.
