This property nestles in the Ariège Pyrenees Nature Park, at the foot of the mountain chain, 1¼ hours from Toulouse and its international airport. The principality of Andorra and its ski resort, Grandvalira, are 1½ hours away as is Font-Romeu. The Mediterranean Sea is but 2½ hours away. A village with all shops and amenities is 10 minutes away, the town of Foix is 20 minutes away and it takes a good 30 minutes to reach the historic towns of Ax-les-Thermes, Mirepoix and Montségur. The land of the Cathars is another nearby centre of interest.
Constructed in the 19th century from quarry stone blocks, the facade is flanked by two streamline towers. The openings, doors and windows, in the main facade air the chateau. The wide terraces, adorned with decoratively-trimmed bushes covered with ivy, as well as the wisteria, growing up the towers, diminish the stern appearance of the chateau as a reflection of the Pyrenees and their abundant vegetation.
The outbuildings comprise a small farm, standing below the chateau. Its independent access leads to a house and a rectangular building for accommodating animals and storing equipment. The house awaits restoration and is currently connected to a spring. The rest of the outbuildings, on a slightly higher level, comprise stables, barns, a woodshed and a converted dwelling.
Sequoia and Lebanon cedar trees, impressive in size and number, appear to rule the parklands. These majestic trees, more than a hundred years old, match their Pyrenean surroundings. The parklands also include other species such as oak, acacia and horse chestnut trees. The orchard, planted with a wide variety of fruit trees including plum, pear, apple, peach, Mirabelle plum, quince, cherry and fig trees as well as redcurrant and blackcurrant bushes, will delight enthusiasts of homemade jams. Flat and slightly sloping grassy areas create a variety of different open spaces. The chapel, awaiting restoration, stands next to a hedge. A few vine stocks enhance the access to the outbuildings. A spring provides the property with water.
The 13x6 m swimming pool is heated via a heat pump and is installed near to an orangery and a greenhouse. A “fast-surface” tennis court, below the swimming pool and the chateau, is enclosed with fencing.
The hilltops, the peaks and the passes in the lower levels of the Pyrenees form a delightful backdrop between the cedar and the sequoia trees. With its tall facade between two towers, topped with candlesnuffer roofs, the chateau itself appears to have understood that such a vigorous and invigorating landscape demands equally impressive buildings. This family residence has long been a happy place to live. The time has come to put the finishing touches to its home comforts. With its outbuildings, it is ideal for mountain lovers, hiking enthusiasts or inhabitants of Toulouse seeking fresh air.
