About this property

Wine Chateau, Private Pool, Garden, Near Beaches. This chateau is in a village setting.

Le Manoir de Canet d'Aude is a fully, recently renovated and imposing Belle Epoque Maison de Maitre - 'Master's House of the Beautiful Era'.

It was originally built in the early 1830's, as a show of influence by one of the wealthiest farmers, landowners and Wine and Brandy producers - For many years later in its life it was home to the family of the Mayor of Narbonne.

It is positioned semi rurally, on the edge of the thriving village of Canet D'Aude, under a mile from the Canal Du Midi at Ventenac with its choice of restaurants - While still being close to all essential services at Lezignan Corbieres and the Cathedral City of Narbonne, with its choice of high quality sandy beaches beyond.

To the rear it has a huge shady garden and a brand new pool (with child's security barrier) and sun terrace.
It was completely renovated in early 2013 to retain all its original character and patina but functions perfectly as a modern and practical property should.

This house really suits larger mixed parties, tour groups or 1 to 4+ families perfectly....
* When rented in conjunction with our other property, we can accommodate up to 22 adults in 11 double high quality hotel (Splittable into singles for teenagers and singles sharing) beds, two pull out beds for younger children who don't mind sharing with their parents and 4 cots.
- Or you could simply indulge yourself and further relax in all the space and grandeur with just a handful of close friends.

The house sits securely behind magnificent decorative cast iron gates, with an imposing fa├žade of golden quarried sandstone, as is the grand curved staircase and balustrade that rises to the front architectural balcony and terrace.
This terrace overlooks a walled courtyard and large gravelled entertaining/bbq space, furnished with bright contemporary coloured traditional French cafe style tables and chairs.

Heavy full height wooden doors open to the main entrance hall, with its marble staircase and walls still rendered in the original 1830's hand painted trompe l'oeil, giving an aged marble effect.

Either side of the hall are double doors that open into 2 large comfortable rooms (salon and dining room), each with high ceilings complete with ornate mouldings, chandeliers and marble fireplaces - This gives you a clear choice of 2 areas to sit and relax, perhaps for young and old or whatever suits the mood best.

Orange wi-fi is available from this point all over the house.

The main hub of Le Manor is the newly re fitted dining room and large fully equipped French period country style kitchen - Then through the 2 double height Frenchdoors you can access the outside again for al fresco dining - multiple tables have been provided, that can be moved and joined together for 'dining under the stars' on the terraces, front courtyard or huge garden to the rear of the property.

From the front balcony you have views over the main swimming pool, sun terrace and park garden with its shallow brook and numerous mature shady fruit trees.

On the first floor there are 4 well proportioned luxury bedroom suites, all with double beds, that can be easily be split into 2 singles - each room has a en suite with Hans Grohe power rain shower and double sinks space permitting.
There are also 2 daybeds, that can be popped up and placed within the largest room suites for younger children + There are 4 portable cots and 4 highchairs for babies.

Well selected Farrow and Ball paints and Osborne & Little wallpapers have been used throughout to complete the French contemporary classic feel.

On the third top floor there are 3 further bedrooms and a large shared family size wc, shower room with double sinks - One of the bedrooms is arranged as a non splittable double, the next a splittable double and the final one as a 2/3 bed dormitory.

On the lower ground floor we have a further recently refitted contemporary classic French kitchen with satellite tv and access to the outside front courtyard - This area is also used by the housekeeper (If her services are required) to cook delicious local food for waitered parties.

Next door is the well stocked 'honesty wine cellar'/utility room with washing machine.

Off the original staff kitchen is the new 'gamesroom' - with a full size quality pool table, bar style table football and full size ping pong table - yippie !

The house enjoys a position set east to west, with huge grounds - part is laid to a large park garden, planted with mature fruit trees including: figs, olives, cherries, apples and walnuts later in the year.

Additional accommodation of 4 double rooms is found in The Old Winery, adjacent and connected to the rear of the main house.
