Château with many original features, 490m², 7 bedrooms with 5 bathrooms, 6 WC, seminar room, 9.3ha of very attractive gardens, ruins, prairie and forest, perfect as a luxury home or themed retreat business This interesting 19th century Château, built on the site of an earlier mas and winery of which vestiges remain, is situated in a calm valley with easy access to Perpignan, the Mediterranean and skiing, in Languedoc-Roussillon, Occitanie, South of France. It is ideal as either a luxury family home/second home or for commercial activity. Situated in a wine producing centre, it is an ideal project for wine lovers to develop their passion and share with their clientele. There is still opportunity to mark this property with your personality. Four bedrooms have been renovated by the current owners, with three upstairs rooms to finish, and a downstairs studio which could be developed as an owner's or guardian's apartment or renovated as a guest suite. The kitchen has been renovated to professional restaurant standards which provides for the 40m² dining room and outdoor dining in warmer months, with plenty of workspace and a separate dishwashing area. Upstairs the seminar room could equally be used for yoga or other activities. There is a lovely feeling of spaciousness outside where zones created by the ruins of the ancient farm and wine buildings divide the land into areas of relaxation, space for animals, and food and wine production.
