Property Description

Centrally located for Toulouse, Beziers & Carcassonne Airports. Barcelona 2.5 hrs by train, Mediterranean beaches 40 mins. The medieval city of Carcassonne is a 10 minute drive away.

The old wine Domaine of Millepetit is surrounded by vineyards, olive & almond groves. A 2 min walk across the old stone bridge takes you to the Canal du Midi tow path ideal for walking, cycling & birdwatching and an easy walk/ cycle into the canal port of Trèbes with supermarkets, banks, bakers & pharmacies; Dr/dentist, indoor swimming pool; sports centre, fishing lake & shops. There are several restaurants, wine bars & a tourist office.

The hamlet is home to 20+ mostly French residents, an 18C Chateau & tower and a cookery school.

There is a large barn (formerly the wine co-operative) which is operated as a market garden. Asparagus, artichokes, cherries, melons and a whole range of fruit and vegetables are available direct from the farm.

Part of the original horse stables, the cottage is sold with its own title (No 29). It has a pretty ground floor kitchen (3.9m x 3.8m) with plenty of storage; fridge/freezer, washing machine, gas (bottled) oven & hob, plus space for a dishwasher. Electric hot water system; heating via electric radiators in winter. The bathroom (1.3m x 2.1m) is adjacent to the kitchen with a modern large shower and under basin storage.

The polished wooden stairwell leads to the 1st floor light & airy double bedroom (2.7m x 3.7m) with views towards the Alaric mountains. The 1st floor lounge (2.8m x 2.9m) has satellite TV and excellent Wi-fi. The lounge accommodates additional guests on a small sofa bed and leads onto a sunny private walled courtyard (3.2 m x 3.6 m). The peaceful courtyard has sun loungers, table and chairs and a BBQ.

Parking for 1 car is directly outside the property with additional overflow parking at the back of the properties.

There are seating areas & terraces overlooking the Canal and a 15m mooring and herb garden for general use on Canal authority land.

Millepetit is a working farm so tractors and farm vehicles come and go on a regular basis. During harvest, vendange machines are a regular sight, both day and night, the bottled rewards are worth it! The vineyards of Lézignan-Corbières and the Minervois are within a 15 min drive or an easy cycle.

Millepetit comes under the commune of the busy Canal port of Trèbes which is a 3.3 km drive (or a 40 min walk or a 10 min cycle). The port area has the Canal triple lock as well as local olive oil & jams are produced here by 2 local artisans.

The cottage has been operated as a profitable gite business for 4 years, which we run alongside our busy cookery school www.canaldumidicooking.com. We have chosen to sell it to concentrate our efforts on the cooking school.

Accounts are available - an additional c€2.5K could be made if you choose to rent it full time to locals in winter.
