Exceptional chateau for sale in France. Completely renovated and comfortable 11th Century French Chateau-fort. On a hilltop surrounded by forest with a view of the Mediterranean in the sunniest part of France - The Eastern Pyrenees.
This part of the Languedoc (Roussillon) is noted for its music festivals, historic monuments, fruits, flowers and wines. As other parts of southern France become crowded (and polluted), the charm, quiet and better climate of the Pyrenees Orientals appeal to the more imaginative buyer.
This domain of twenty five acres has 360 degree protected panoramas - North and East over the river valleys farms and villages, medieval ruins with a Charlemagne chapel to the south and snow capped peaks to the west. It is 36 kilometres from the Mediterranean coast and 75 kilometres from Pyrenees ski resorts.
Its history involves royal family events of the Kingdom of Aragon, feudal marriages, celebrations and passionate chronicles of past centuries.
Grand, though not overwhelming, this chateau with its Romanesque arched windows, leaded glass, wrought iron gates, heraldic carvings and 14th C. well and other 14th C. additions, would suit a couple, family, relais or conference centre. Available fully furnished (with the exception of certain family antiques) one need bring only a toothbrush.
The interior living space is over 7,000 square feet (650 sq.m.), not counting terraces, stairs and baths. There are eight bedrooms and eight and half baths. Two of the eight bedrooms with their two baths easily form a separate servant/guest or rental apartment.
