EXCLUSIVE TO BEAUX VILLAGES! This is a rare opportunity to own three sympathetically restored historic properties situated in a secluded hamlet hidden amongst the rolling hills of the beautiful Tarn countryside in South West France. This piece of paradise, in a privileged elevated position, offers complete privacy and tranquility. It enjoys far-reaching views of the ancient lands surrounding Cordes sur Ciel, one of the "Beaux Villages of France" and is just a 30 minute drive from the bustling city of Albi, a UNESCO world heritage site.

Dating from the middle ages, the main residential property has been sympathetically restored using traditional materials, retaining many of its original features and its mediaeval charm. It has been designed to take advantage of the outstanding views and offers 480m2 of accommodation surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens.

The ground floor offers a large entrance hall, a farmhouse kitchen and 3 spacious living areas, one of which leads out onto the terrace and gardens. A staircase off the dining area, leads up to one wing of the property where you will discover the main bedroom suite with dressing room, lounge and bathroom. Its triple aspect captures the spectacular views. A further bedroom and bathroom is across the hallway.

Off the hallway, a second staircase leads up to the west wing. Here, are 3 ensuite bedrooms one of which benefits from a west facing terrace with exterior steps leading down to the courtyard garden. On the ground floor is a further room which is currently used as a cinema. It has an adjoining bathroom and doors to the outside courtyard garden.

The architecturally designed infinity swimming pool, with beach style entry, is secluded and takes full advantage of the stunning views. Set among the beautiful gardens is a guest house of 65m2 comprising a kitchen, living/ dining area, ensuite bedroom and terrace.

The third property, 50m away, has its own private gardens and swimming pool and is an exceptional 2 bedroom residence with a spectacular medieval hall and library of 100m2. Currently known as “the artist's retreat” this property with its stunning hall is frequently used by visiting established artists to work, relax and regenerate.

Formerly a wine merchant’s property, there is potential (subject to normal permissions) to convert the ground floor stables and covered terraces into further living space.

Attached to this property is an independent 2 bedroom caretaker’s residence with raised terrace.

Discuss an Offer

If this or other properties are of potential serious interest, you may wish to speak in confidence and without obligation or commitment with a sympathetic senior negotiator to discuss what flexibility there may be in the price.

Getting the right deal can be a question of good timing and we have that information.

Whatever you read in the press, it is simply not true that one can apply a percentage discount to the price of any property we like the look of. And it is a real shame to fall in love with a property that is beyond what you wish to spend or can afford.
