Une bergerie viticole avec vue près du Jaur
Quietly situated stone house with views within walking distance of the river Jaur. The property is located in a small hamlet near the picturesque town of Olargues, between Lamalou les Bains and St Pons de Thomières. The historic city of Béziers (TGV + int. Airport) is located at approximately a 40 minute's drive away and the beaches of the Mediterranean Sea are reachable in about 50 minutes.
The hamlet is part of the "Parc Naturel du Haut Languedoc" with its many recreational facilities such as "La Voie Verte" from which one can bike about 70 kilometers without traffic, on a former rail way. The property backs almost to this bike and hiking path.
The land on which the property is located was already lived on by the Romans. This is also witnessed by a natural stone fenced path that borders the plot. In the vicinity of the property one can also admire an old stone tower which is also adjacent to this Roman path and where in the old times toll had to be paid.
It is not clear when the first stone of the house is laid. What is clear though is that, in 1898, the house was minutely removed and rebuild to make place for the construction of the railway (now "La Voie Verte"). It used to function as a winemakers house. In the last decades, the house was restored.
The property has a built surface of approximately 180 sqm including 94 sqm of living space. The traditional style in which the house is built, offers a very pleasant atmosphere. This atmospher is emphasized by the many wooden and stone details.
The property is located in a beautiful and typical Mediterranean landscape. The main facade is oriented to the South. Here one can relax and enjoy the Mediterranean climate and the flora (and fauna) of the mainly fenced yard. The garden (total area 4,327 sqm) features a local vegetation and appears to merge with the surrounding nature. Besides the many Irises, Aloe Vera and flower species, there are also several fruit trees (peach, almond, apricot ...).
The current owners reside on a permanent basis in the house but because of its location within walking distance of the river and nature, its charm and its "manageable" size, the property is also ideal as a holiday home.
