Description

Character village property of exposed natural stone, dating from the 17th century, situated in a cul-de-sac on the edge of the village of Bugarach, a few yards from one of the Cathar footpaths. The house has a large south-facing balcony from which there is an uninterrupted view of the famous Pech de Bugarach, the highest mountain in the Corbieres range. It has extensive grounds, including a small hill affording a panoramic view of the surrounding countryside, and a beautiful secluded courtyard, shaded by trailing plants. This is an ideal base for outdoor activity since footpaths radiate in all directions from the village, offering a wealth of local and long-distances hikes. There is a swimming lake a few minutes walk from the house as well as opportunities for horse-riding and rock climbing. The Cathar castles of Peyrepertuse and Queribus and the spectacular Gorges de Galamus are all within easy cycling distance. Rennes-les-Bains, famous for its thermal baths, is close by, as is the

Rennes-les-Bains, famous for its thermal baths, is close by, as is the hilltop village of Rennes-le-Chateau, made famous by "The Da Vinci Code". This house offers you the perfect opportunity for exploring an area of striking natural beauty, rich in human history.

Location description from owner

The Occitanie region

Bugarach is situated in the southern Aude, a short distance from the spectacular Gorges de Galamus which forms the border with the Pyrenées Orientales region of the Languedoc. It is within easy reach of the famous Cathar castles as well as many other historic sites, including the medieval city of Carcassonne. The beaches of the Mediterranean can be reached in just over an hour, while northern Spain, Andorra and other parts of the Pyrenees can all be visited easily on day trips. Throughout the summer the region plays hosts to numerous cultural events and festivals.

Bugarach

This is a mountainous limestone area, occupying 3 climate zones, giving rise to Mediterranean summers, northern European winters, year-round alpine influence and a wealth of flora and fauna. The village, nestling under Bugarach mountain, is surrounded by broad-leaf woodland, mainly oak and chestnut. The forests are home to wild boar; eagles nest on the mountain and black vultures visit the area daily to feed. This is ideal terrain for walkers, climbers, cyclists and nature lovers. It is also an ideal area for lovers of historic sites. The village lake, despite its lack of crystalline waters, is perfect for wild swimming, while the neigbouring village of Rennes-les-Bains offers natural thermal baths.
