Pretty tourist village with all shops and amenities including cafes, restaurant, grocery, school, post office, art galleries, voted one of France’s prettiest villages, popular with tourists and steeped in medieval history, 40 minutes from Carcassonne (airport), 45 minutes from Beziers (airport) and 40 minutes to beaches.
Set on the border of the river just 4 kilometres from the village this pretty traditional water mill, dating from the 14th, 15th and 19th centuries, offers 340 m2 living space comprising a main residence with B&B rooms and 4 gites (of which 3 are independent with exterior access, private terraces and gardens) situated in the middle of the countryside and only 4 kilometres to all amenities, in the heart of the very beautiful Minervois Corbieres.
A popular and profitable business with current bookings and high proven revenue set on over 17 hectares of vines, pines, fields and olive trees.
This property has been renovated to a high standard, but has retained its original character, charm and features (original tiled floors, marble fireplaces, high ceilings, exposed beams, water mill).
The water mill, if restored, would function if the irrigation canal was reinstated.
