Live totally off-grid in this haven of peace in Southern France!
Perched on a rocky hillside looking across open countryside with a superb view of the Pyrenees beyond, this 18th century stone built residence which was totally rebuilt by an architect, represents the 21st century rural idyll.
The property is practically self-sufficient. Solar powered energy provides all the electricity for water heating and lighting. Liquid gas supplementary heating installed. The open plan living area is warmed by the solid stone handcrafted wood burning stove and open fireplace positioned below the majestic stone staircase leading to the first floor. Well water is stored in a 24,000 litre reservoir and supplies the house and pool, and rainwater is used to water the garden.
The living room, with its vaulted ceiling and excellent acoustics, gives an overall feeling of tranquility, space and light. The nearest neighbour is 5 minutes’ drive down the wooded drive through the garrigue and the nearest village is 10 minutes drive away.
