About Michael Ormond

We, the owners, are both professionals who absolutely love France - the people, culture - art, music, cuisine, the history, architecture, the ocean, the sea, sunshine, mountains, countryside - vineyards, the feeling of liberation. We could go on and on. This part of France provides for us so many of the really wonderful aspects of life which give nourishment, enjoyment and satisfaction. Many of which are no longer available in other places.

Why Michael Ormond chose Carcassonne area

We found are property in a quiet area of Carcassonne. It was a nearly blank painting, the outlines only. We have been able to place our own art onto this canvas creating the picture, our home. This has taken more than 10 years. A thoroughly satisfying journey. One day the painting will be complete, in time. Carcassonne is mostly original and offers so much to everyone. It sits in Languedoc-Rousillon a most superb area in southern France. The wine growing areas of Corbiere, Minervois and Fitou surround it. There is a local beach, the Mediterranean and the Pyrenees are close by. Travel is easy, by mainline train from Carcassonne, The airport is 5 kilometres from the house and the motorway and main roads are just5 kilometres

What makes this house unique

The furnishing and décor are mainly in a Art Deco style providing a luxurious surrounding which is relaxing, comfortable and invigorating. The games room has a professional Pool table, dart board plus other games. Themes are set in the four bedrooms- a French traditional, a Art Deco, a 60's and a 70's. The walled garden has beautiful marbled columns, walls and features which basques in rays from sunrise to near sunset for 9 months of the year. Walk 5 mins to the wooded area with tennis courts, open air pool, Aude River and Midi canal. Walk 5 mins to the Centre Ville with marbled squires, boutiques, restaurants, brasseries, the markets, shops. The magnificent 11th century La Cite sits on the hill 15 mins walk away. Festivals run for most of the year

Guestbook comments from the owner

We all stayed at the lovely property for 1 week. The house was situated in a nice quiet spot yet close to walk into the centre. Accommodation was great and enjoyable. Carcassonne is a fantastic place. We had sunshine throughout. Needed more time to visit all the places the area offered. Will return again and stay at the same house.
