About the property

5 bedroom property surrounded by vineyards, easy access to the Mediterranean

La Croix de Caulet is a modern property built to a high standard with stunning views. The property has a large private pool and has direct access to vineyards and woodland, ideal for cycling and walking. Free internet access. Surrounded by vineyards and sunflower fields. La Croix de Caulet offers an ideal combination of a relaxed and active holiday.

The beautiful beaches of the Mediterranean are about one hour away. Carcassonne with its famous castle and Canal de Midi where boats can be rented is less than half an hour away. The stunning Pyrenees are an hour away and offer an abundance of activities such as skiing and white water rafting.

Closer to home the beautiful towns of Mirepoix and Limoux are perfect examples of traditional french towns full of history, amazing architecture, weekly markets and fantastic bars and restaurants.

This area has everything.

Le Croix de Caulet is a wonderfully spacious property and can be found at the top of a private drive. The entrance hall leads to the living area (60m2) with an open plan kitchen and dining/living room. This area is stunning and offers panoramic views. This room opens out on to a large veranda and terrace area, dominated by the large pool and overlooking vineyards and the Pyrenees. The kitchen has everything a modern kitchen needs with an oven, dishwasher, hob and fridge. There are two bedrooms on the ground floor, a bathroom and a utility room with a Miele washing machine and condenser dryer. The staircase leads to three further bedrooms all with ensuite shower rooms and amazing views. There is also a door leading to a small patio area where the views can be really enjoyed.

The gardens of the property are vast. The top level garden consists of a large terrace with bbq and pool area. There are steps which lead down to the lower level gardens where you will find a children's play area and an orchard with cherry, apple, fig and olive trees.

There is a path from the garden to the village of Bellegarde du Razes which is a village full of history and is dominated by the church. We would recommend exploring this village where the views of the Pyrenees can be really enjoyed.

Why James Earley chose Bellegarde-du-Razès

We chose this property because as soon as we walked up the drive which was surrounded by vineyards and saw the pool and the views we were speach-less. It really was an incredible first impression. The modern house is both beautiful and easy to run. The people of Bellegarde du Razes are the nicest and most welcoming people that we have ever met. We have three children, always difficult to keep entertained but the area offers everything such as canoeing, white water rafting, skiing and all the water sports you can think of at the Med. The house is in a perfect geographical location, it is close to the Mediterranean, near to the Pyrenees and easy enough to drive to Spain as this is only an hour and a half away.

The beauty and tranquility of the area will stay with everyone who visits it for ever.

What makes this house unique

A holiday at this property is perfect for all sorts of reasons. It is ideal for those holiday makers who want a quiet walking holiday or for those who want to use the holiday as an opportunity to paint the landscape made famous by Cezanne and other artists and visit areas where Picasso and Dali lived or for those who want a holiday on the Mediterranean enjoying its water parks and water sports.

Car: recommended

Limoux and Mirepoix are the two nearest villages. Both are beautiful and full of history. Limoux has the longest carnival in the world where as Mirepoix is like stepping back in time. Both have weekly markets, bars and excellent restaurants.

The area is dominated by the Pyrenees which is about a 40 minute drive away whereas 40 minutes to the south are the incredible Mediterranean beaches.

Further afield, just over the Pyrenees is Spain which is about 2 hours by car. This Spanish area is proudly Catalan and radiates beauty from its very heart, the incredible city of Barcelona

This region in France has everything, it has for years inspired the most famous artists in the world, it has some of the best beaches in Europe and is close to the beautifully imposing Pyrenees with all its ski resorts
