This magnificent castle built in the Middle Ages, founded on a Roman castrum and steeped in history, is ideally located on the heights of a charming medieval village in the greater region of Montpellier, Occitanie, South of France, not far from Mediterranean beaches and international airports. The castle, a wall of which, dates back to the 11th Century, has been enlarged and altered from the 14th Century during several periods. It offers exceptional panoramic views overlooking the village and all the surrounding countryside, villages and vineyards, and on occasion, the Pyrenees on the horizon. This exceptional property will surprise you with bright rooms, large windows, beautiful volumes, high ceilings, exposed stone walls, monumental staircases, beautiful ornate fireplaces, a classical French ceiling, beautiful double doors and many more historical elements that remain to be discovered. The current owner has devoted a lot of time, energy and care to create an exquisite place. The château has been completely renovated from top to bottom and thanks to reversible air conditioning, new double-glazed windows and roof insulation, the DPE is extraordinarily graded 'A’ - unheard of for a medieval Castle. A large interior courtyard, very charming and a true haven of peace, is ideal for relaxation or for a commercial activity.

The property as a whole, with each bedroom having its own bathroom, is ideal for a Bed and Breakfast activity, a Gîtes business and/or a Restaurant.
