This interesting 19th century Chteau, 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.
