Full Description: A most unusual property for lovers of stone, history and hardwork.
A double gate leads into a courtyard of (85m) which could be enlarged by demolishing the one storey building (33m) to the left. You walk forward and up some steps onto the generous terrace that lies across the front of the main building.

From the terrace you enter the first floor. The main building is 122m per floor on the top floors and about 100m on the ground floor.
The main room (92m) on the first floor boasts a high, classified, medieval 'plafond a la francaise' (wooden ceiling) with some wonderfull painted details. At the moment there are some partition walls at one end of this room, but these could easily be cleared away to give value to the ceiling. Windows give out both onto the terrace and on the other side to green views of the Herault countryside. There is a room (30m) off the main room.

Above this floor is a large and spacious 'loft' with full head height. This is divided in to 2 rooms, the same sizes as on the floor below, with two wonderful stone arches supporting the roof carpentry. The roof has been recently redone with the participation of the town and the region ( because of the historical importance of the building.)

There is a small 3 storey village house included which juts into the courtyard. This can be accessed from the terrace in the courtyard or via a seperate street entrance.
This property has been lived in recently but is in bad condition, in need of total renovation. It has two floors of 38m each and one of about 15m with restricted head height ( not the loft - the ground floor on the street side!).

Difficult to describe and the photos do not do the property justice, however, this is very well priced and 140000+ depending on tastes would turn this into a unique and very special home.

The village, although small, has a bakers, two general stores, a postoffice, a well reputed cafe/restaurant, a chemists, a hair dresser, a resident doctor and a primary school of very good reputation.
30minutes from the Mediterranean,
