Since I moved from London to the Languedoc 8 years ago I have always thought that there was something missing from the property market here.
There seemed to be loads and loads of developments springing up everywhere but none of them seemed to capture what I always belived was the spirit of this part of France.
What I saw a real market for was a picturesque Domaine or Chateau in a beautiful setting with well situated out-buildings that could be converted into a small, bespoke, luxury development of individual houses or apartments with communal grounds, swimming pool, tennis court etc.
The problem was that a) These buildings were close to impossible to find, b) I didn't have the money to do it and c) No-one else shared my vision.
Instead developers were frantically running around building modern blocks of apartments in, what turned out to be more often than not, very compromised locations.
Until now !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am please to say that finally, someone who shares my vision has come along and has just launched what I consider to be a truly outstanding project.
Chateau les Carrasses lies just west of Beziers, in a beautiful setting just outside the village of Capestang so it's very convenient for the beach and airports alike.
The Chateau les Carrasses is being reborn as a mixture of luxury apartments within the Chateau itself, plus luxury houses (some with private swimming pools) created from the Chateau's well spaced out-buildings.
The developer is known to me and has a real eye for style, detail and quality of materials and finish. The Chateau les Carrasses is going to be one hot ticket this summer.
