Overview

About the property

4 bedroom 3 bathroom house with amazing garden, pool & beautiful views.

A traditional four double bedroom Maison de Maitre brought up to date with sympathetic interior design and a subtle mix of antique and contemporary furniture. In a tiny hamlet close to Carcassonne and within [3km] walking distance of the nearest village with shops and places to eat - five minutes by car. Set in 2 acres of beautiful gardens with formal planting of mature chestnut trees and box hedge to the front and a wild and dramatic Mediterranean landscape with large private pool at the back. Enjoy the amazing view from the comfort of a sun lounger! The pool area has just recently been fenced for safety and there is also a pool alarm if you want the additional security around young children. There are several sets of outdoor tables and chairs arranged in different parts of the grounds so that you can choose different light for different times of day, different spaces for different meals.

Two bedrooms have twin beds and two have doubles. Two with ensuite shower rooms and two with a shared 'Jack & Jill' ensuite. All of the rooms feel wonderfully calm and peaceful and are decorated in soft Farrow & Ball colours with simple painted floors and pretty rugs. There is a separate loo upstairs and also a downstairs cloakroom off the utility room.

Elegant modern open plan kitchen, dining for 10 and living space with comfy sofas. Separate sitting room with TV & DVD. Wifi throughout. Utility room with washing machine.

An easy 45/60 minutes to the beautiful beaches on the coast, close to the Canal du Midi with all it has to offer and about 15 minutes from historic Carcassonne.

About Jamie & Amynta Warde-Aldam

We are a family living between London & Northumberland. We rented Domaine de Belzons for a family holiday to celebrate a special birthday in March and fell in love with the house and the area even in chilly conditions!

We bought the house later in the year and have loved every moment we have spent there. It has been an absolute joy to furnish the house so that it feels comfortable but elegant.

Why Jamie & Amynta Warde-Aldam chose Sainte-Eulalie

The house is situated in such peaceful surroundings that you relax the moment you arrive. It offers space without being daunting, comfort without being stuffy and the most wonderful base to explore the region with two world heritage sites on the doorstep - Carcassonne and the Canal du Midi. Perfect for hot Summer holidays [the beaches are an easy drive away] the area is great for serious sightseeing in Spring and Autumn. Belzons would also be a fantastic place for a family Christmas or celebration.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Private and quiet without being remote. Local shopping and supermarkets within easy distance.

Elegant interiors.

A spectacular view.

Lots of things to do/see in bad weather.

Good size private pool.

A beautiful, relaxing house in the South of France

  • 5 of 5

I only have positive things to say about this house and the location. Communication was very warm and welcoming from the very start and on our first day we were greeted with a couple of bottles of local wine. The house is well kept, clean, beautifully decorated and full of interesting art. Very comfortable beds and fluffy towels! We were two families so the house was the perfect size to accommodate us all. Outside the gardens are huge so plenty of space at the front and back of the house to sit and read, sunbathe by the pool or just take in the wonderful views. If you like to exercise there are some beautiful runs past vast fields of sunflowers and vineyards to the local village and beyond with views out to the Pyrenees. One of our party is a keen painter so enjoyed long afternoons painting the sunflowers and views. Out and about the local pretty village of Alzonne is a 5min drive and is perfect for daily amenities like bread etc. 15mins drive you have the amazing, stunning medieval city of Carcassonne which we visited a couple of times in the early evening for supper. Not to be missed! Lastly another beautiful town is Montolieu. Again about 15mins from the house and full of charming bookshops and art. A pretty square and wonderful views. I would highly recommend this house if you are after a peaceful, relaxing holiday. It was perfect! We hope to visit again.
