Rare opportunity to purchase one of the few privately owned properties on the world famous Canal du Midi, 9 km to Le Cite de Carcassonne, 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, stone cottage with adjoining barn ideal for conversion, both with views over the Canal.

The 100sqm exposed stone cottage is part of the original stable block belonging to the Chateau de Millepetit & has uninterrupted views directly over the canal. Its adjoining 44sqm stone-built barn also faces the Canal & is ideal for conversion into a 2 or 3 storey residence of up to 132sqm.

The cottage is an ideal “lock & leave” holiday home, an income generating gite or a charming permanent residence. The barn has the potential for renovation. A similar barn next-door has just been converted into an outstanding modern home & approvals are in place for another barn conversion in the terrace. Advice on getting approval can be given

The Domaine de Millepetit dates back to the 12th Century. This meandering stretch is particularly photogenic with vineyard & mountain views either side & most of its ancient plane trees kept & protected. There are communal canal side terraces & the life of the canal passes directly in front of you.

There is the opportunity to moor a boat subject to VNF approval (neighbours have already been given this).

Carcassonne is a short drive or one hour cycle away. On crossing the bridge by the Chateau it's a 40min walk or 10 min bike-ride along the towpath into the picturesque port of Trèbes 3km away.

Within the private Domaine you will find a working farm with families of different nationalities who own & manage various businesses including grapevines, orchards, olive groves, holiday gites & a cooking school. Surrounded by apricot & olive groves, you can buy fresh fruit & vegetables, & Millepetit’s own wines from the vigneron.

Ground floor: The bright spacious kitchen/diner has an adjoining utility area, also a cloakroom with WC & basin. The open plan lounge has 2 windows & an open fireplace for winter. Both rooms face south, over the canal.

First floor: 3 double bedrooms, 2 facing the canal including master with ensuite shower room & a family bathroom (WC & basin in both) serving the other 2 beds. There is an enclosed private courtyard with raised flower beds to the rear.

Adjoins the cottage and has great potential for renovation as demonstrated by two others in the same row in the Domaine
