This beautiful 200 year old 126 m2 farmhouse is uniquely situated on the tree-lined banks of the famous Canal du Midi.

Set in landscaped gardens that lead down to the tow path, there are plenty of quiet corners to enjoy a quick snooze in the sunshine or a glass of the local wine.

Alternatively sit by the heated pool from where you can hear the gentle ‘whoosh’ as the canal boats glide by or take cover under the shade of the ancient chestnut trees at the front of the house.

Rolling fields and acres of vineyards punctuate the surrounding countryside, in the heart of the Languedoc, – and yet the property is just a 20 minute drive from the unique walled ‘cite’ of Carcassonne.

Explore Cathar Castles, Les Montagnes Noires, medieval hilltop towns and colourful markets, all within easy reach.

The gites at Le Gabachou offer peace and tranquility, coupled with all the comforts you would expect in a real ‘home from home’.

There are several tables and chairs and bbs sited near the apartments and there is 3 acres/1 hectare garden, no passing traffic or neighbours.

Local Attractions

Le Gabachou is ideally situated to explore the diversity and beauty of the Languedoc Roussillon countryside. With a warm Mediterranean climate, the area not only boasts row upon row of vines and sunflowers, but also the first fruits of France: early ripening cherries, peaches, figs, and apricots.

The farmhouse is just 20 kms west of the famous medieval city of Carcassonne; the Mediterranean is just an hour’s drive (visit Gruissan for the day - a wonderful old fishing village with a yacht harbour and sandy beaches). Golfing at Carcassonne is also close by.

For architecture, shopping and museums, drive to energetic Toulouse - known as the 'Pink City' for its beautiful red-brick buildings. It's many elegant squares, bordered with cafes, are perfect for sitting back and watching the world go by.

This is also Cathar country – with numerous castles and abbeys to visit. On the trail of the Da Vinci Code take in the mysterious church of Rennes-le Chateau.

The property is surrounded on three sides by fields of sunflowers, wheat and corn with views to the north over vineyards to La Montagne Noire. The extensive garden leads down to the banks of the Canal Du Midi and the nearby Port du Bram (5 minutes away.
