We knew that for this family, the decision to sell this wonderful family home was a difficult one.  We could see why – this is a gracious property that lets in the light and is surrounded by gardens which give it privacy, yet is within an easy 5 minute walk to the center of Chalabre.  Built by an architect to the family’s design, it is a lovely arrangement of social living spaces that feature some of the most wonderful views and a more private bedroom wing, all on one level.  The large windows in the salon and office face both the wonderful Chateau de Chalabre as well as a lovely view of the Pyrenees mountain range.  The kitchen is wonderfully cool in summer and gives on to the terrace and BBQ area with beautiful, mature plantings and a lovely fall of wisteria from the upper garden.  The family’s love of the outdoors is evident in the solarium that they created along the back of the house that brings the outdoors in and provides the most wonderful gathering space in all but the coldest of weather.

The bedroom wing is off to one side and includes 3 good sized rooms, one toilette that can be used by the public spaces as well, one salle de bain with bathtub and one shower room with private toilette.  The two good sized garages are accessed through the solarium as is the attic space that would be quite easy to convert and has a lovely area that was originally a terrace which could be restored to yet again feature the spectacular views from this property.

There is an additional upper garden – which used to be an orchard – behind the house of approximately 14oo sqm that is plenty big enough to create a glorious family pool area that would again have those wonderful views!  A bit of landscaping will be required to restore privacy to this area, but the house is well situated so that there is no vis a vis from the neighbors to the living areas at all.  A lovely hedge wall around the rear garden will extend that privacy to the entire property.

There is a private gated drive to access the garages as well as a charming set of steps down to the road that leads a quick 5 minutes into the center of Chalabre, a lively town with all services, several restaurants and cafes, doctors, dentist, schools and a year round Saturday market.  Like all property in our village it has good airport access either to Carcassonne or Toulouse, less than an hour to the ski slopes and about one and a half hours to the Mediterranean beaches.  Spain is about 3 hours away and Andorra – for tax free shopping – about and hour and a half.

Known for its lakes, mountains, winding country roads and excellent weather, the frontier between the Aude and the Ariège departments has been a vacation heaven for years!  Biking, hiking, skiing, boating, and beach access are all within easy striking distance –

  • 1 hour to airport in Carcassonne and 1 hour to skiing

  • 1.5 hours to airport in Toulouse

  • 1.5 hours to the beaches of the Mediterranean

  • Lovely village setting just on the edge of the village and 5 minutes to Chalabre

  • 10  minutes to Lac de Montbel

In summary, this is a lovely one level villa that was designed for easy living and easy access to beautiful outdoor spaces and beautiful views.  An energy efficient home that includes central heating with gas and double glazed windows throughout, this lovely property presents an excellent value to anyone looking for an easy to care for holiday home or a lovely family home that can expand when needed to accommodate the entire clan!  Please visit to appreciate this special property…
