Why Catherine and Mike Finch chose Carcassonne surroundings
We bought this property having fallen in love with the area. La Redorte is a small but lively village with the advantage of being situated between the historic city of Carcassonne (20mins) and Narbonne and the coast (30-40mins). It also has a nearby swimming lake (10mins) and the calm and peaceful Canal du Midi meanders through the bottom of the village.As one of the Minevois villages La Redorte is surrounded by grapevines.
What makes this house unique
This is a light and airy house with courtyard garden which combines the benefits of traditional building techniques , thick stone walls to keep it cool in summer and exposed beams, with a sympathetic modern renovation offering modern facilities.
