In the Languedoc Roussilon region, tucked away behind the mountains of L'Alaric just southwest of Carcassonne lies the idyllic village of Montlaur situated in a bowl of vineyards surrounded by lush hills of vegetation.
Close to the heart of the village you will find the castellated Chateau d'Eau that provides the unique entrance to the Main House and Barns to which this luxurious apartment belongs.
Wishing to design a spacious retreat ideally for couples, this sumptuous apartment has been created from an entire ground floor barn, comprising over 1200 square feet (110 square metres). Being constructed of stone and fully insulated, the property is naturally cool in the summer and is heated to be comfortable and cosy during cold spells. The entire area is floored with traditional grey stone tiles.
The property boasts a fully equipped kitchen with the most up to date appliances. The breakfast bar stands adjacent to a generous open plan living space. For true convenience and comfort a washing machine is located in a separate utility/laundry room with an additional cloakroom.
Entry to the bedroom is through stylish Japanese sliding doors in order to maximise use of the space available. Once inside you will be met with a Super King size bed fitted with a luxury foam mattress and adequate storage.
The bedroom is served by an impressive ensuite in which you will discover a roll top bath and large marble custom built shower stall
The Apartment, which has its own private entrance from the street, opens up onto its own private patio area.
Guests have unfettered access to the garden and swimming pool of the main house with the proviso that it may be shared with the family when they are in residence.
Montlaur is an ideal base for exploring the whole region from the Cathar castles to day trips to Perpignan or Toulouse. The historic and captivating medieval City of Carcassonne is less than 30 mins away. The beach can be accessed at Narbonne or Leucate in less than 40 mins.
Montlaur also provides numerous walks in all directions and is ideal for cycling expeditions. There are stables nearby which cater for outings of various duration. In nearby Trebes you can hire a boat to spend time floating along the Canal du Midi.
There are a few small restaurants in some of the villages nearby and especially in Lagrasse which is so picturesque and hosts a monastery as well as a number of well reviewed restaurants.
If you spend time in our village, you will almost certainly want to return and will be eager to tell all your friends about the beautiful countryside that you have experienced.
