This peaceful estate in its fine location, has great views and is full of history in the heart of   the "Herault". This property ’s main building houses a Maison de Maitre, horse stables, garages, a riding ring, a reception/ party room, terraces and a swimming pool. There is also a separate old mill with horse boxes and other annexes. The estate covers about 90 hectares and is part of a hilly landscape: natural and unspoilt- particularly appreciated by lovers of nature and fresh air!

The property is in between the lively and well-equipped towns of Bédarieux, Lodève and Clermont l'Hérault. The shores of Lake Salagou are about 15 minutes away. The Mediterranean beaches and the historic towns of Béziers and Montpellier, each with a TGV station and an international airport, are about an hour's drive away.

It is not known  exactly when the first stone of this estate was laid but it is certain that the buildings have a rich history. In addition to its agricultural qualities, this estate was well known  in the last century as a hotel and as a party spot (Cabaret). Until a few years ago, it was home to many prestigious Arabian thoroughbred horses. Many details tell the story. Through the centuries, multiple modifications have been made. In particular, these last 12 years have resulted in the creation of many horse facilities.

The floor space exceeds 3,000 m2 including the living area of approximately 800 m2. The old mill is perfectly inhabitable but the house needs to be restored to regain its former splendour.
The land (900,000 m2) of the estate, almost in one piece, seems to blend gradually with the surrounding nature. The property is in the heart of a V-shaped valley providing superb views of a pure landscape.
The land consists mainly of woods, meadows and moors. About 40 hectares have been developed for horse breeding and have been equipped with metal and wood barriers doubling as with electric barriers, provided and laid by the brand Rinco. (In total it is about 2,500 ml of fences).
Around the living areas: there are many terraces and relaxation areas to fully enjoy the Mediterranean climate and splendid views.

The estate has its own water supply and is connected to the electricity networks. The individual sanitation system would represent one of the improvements, depending on the proposed project.
The exceptional and privileged site as well as generous constructed spaces as well as land areas inspire much potential, making this  a unique investment opportunity. Number of receptions, bedrooms and bathrooms to be confirmed upon request.
