Château Les Carrasses is a unique “one off” product – character period properties such as the Château are very hard to come by, and rarely appear on the market. And when they do, planning permission is very difficult to receive, with only the most sensitive and sensible plans receiving authorisation. Meanwhile demand for character properties in walk-in condition is and has always been strong.
The developer of the vineyard chateau is resolutely focussed on ensuring they offer their customers value for money and the properties at the Château Les Carrasses really do stand up against anything comparable in the region.
Location location location
Château Les Carrasses enjoys a fantastic location in Languedoc, one of the world’s strongest markets for second homes.
Within France, the Languedoc area is experiencing rapid growth in international tourism and now welcomes over 14 million visitors annually, making it the fourth largest tourist destination. And with expanding international connections and the ongoing discovery of the region, this growth looks set to continue.
Add the fact that the Languedoc vineyard chateau is a very rare product, the exit is going to be very straightforward and the evidence is already there in fact – off plan in a very tough market, the Chateau Les Carrasses has sold all but two units in less than 4½ months. Imagine a fully realized product in a buoyant market…
Buying a property at the Languedoc Château is a fundamentally sound investment as well as lifestyle decision.
